Everybody in the health world talks about the importance of protein, but it still remains grossly misunderstood. What is amino acid utilization, and what does it mean for us? What are the best foods for amino acid utilization? What happens when you don't get enough essential amino acids as it relates to protein turnover, healing, anabolism effect with training?

On this episode, I’m joined by legendary physician, author and founder of LifeWorks Medical Center, BodyHealth, and PerfectAmino, Dr. David Minkoff, who shares the truth about protein we all should know about.

 

We need healthy food and supplements so we can change the trend of society and the planet to save us from extinction. -Dr. David Minkoff

 

Three Takeaways

  • Different foods have different levels of amino acids and usability. Whole eggs are the best while whey and soy are really low in amino acids, and don’t move the needle.

  • When you eat whey protein, the body can’t use the amino acid so it takes off the nitrogen you’re just left with a carb.

  • You can’t make protein out of 3 amino acids, you need 8.

At the start of the show, Dr. David shared how he got started in alternative healthcare, and how his wife’s experience with mercury toxicity led him down that path. Next, we talked about whether autoimmune disorders are being caused by toxic particulates, and why all that has a lot to do with gut health and the intestines. We talked about proteins, amino acid utilization, and the best sources of protein.

 

We also discussed;

  • Why all proteins aren’t created equal
  • Gluconeogenesis
  • Best diet for endurance athletes



The body’s ability to utilize the protein it digests isn’t just about eating any protein, it’s about eating the right kind of protein. Protein is made up of smaller units called amino acids, and in order to get the full benefit of utilization, you have to remember that not all amino acids are created equal. One gram of protein in one food isn’t the same as a gram in another, and you have to be extremely discerning about the protein you choose, because it determines how your body recovers, and how the amino acids reassemble. If you’re an athlete, a bodybuilder this is incredibly important. Remember, casein, collagen, egg whites, and BCAAs are not good enough proteins to perform the necessary functions and you can never go wrong with whole eggs.
