Is your energy drink clogging your arteries? Click the link to read full article
My protein scientist husband forwarded this link to me, AFTER checking every supplement and protein powder bag in our house for carnitine. Since we only use Arbonne supplements in this household, we were naturally in the clear! If you’re an omnivore like me then this is more important than if you are vegetarian or vegan. The compound to watch for is carnitine; present both in red meat and certain energy drinks it can lend itself to atherosclerosis (hardening/clogging of arteries).
Like with everything else, it is vitally important that we become conscious of everything we consume. Our health is our responsibility and it is our duty to take care of it in the best way we can so we can live the longest, healthiest lives we can for ourselves and our future generations. It’s no longer enough just to read carbohydrate, fat and protein content; its the ‘other ingredients’ that you really have to watch for. If you can’t pronounce it, it doesn’t deserve to be in your food or your skincare.
