The Naked Truth!
Here’s the truth: I absolutely have never added protein powder to any of my daily health shakes. My husband has always told me I should, and he totally does. He has tried every protein powder known to man and every time I hear, “try this” I cringe. I know I need more protein. I’ve researched the benefits of whey protein, but I just couldn’t stomach the stuff. Also, I was never down for sketchy ingredients.
So, for years I have stuck to adding greek yogurt or some kind of nut butter with lots of greens, fruit and almond milk. It’s simple, natural, full of nutrients and I love the taste. Could my shakes use more protein? Yes, but I wasn’t going to compromise.
Then, Naked Nutrition reached out to me and wanted me to do a Naked Whey protein review. They were convinced they could change my mind. I have to be honest, I thought sure send me your protein powder it sounds amazing, but I’ll probably pass it along to my husband. Ya, it’s free of icky stuff, but I probably won’t like it. I was totally skeptical. That’s why I’m so happy to tell you I was very wrong! Seriously, dead wrong.
When I say I’m very picky about how my shakes taste, I mean it. I add a ridiculous amount of kale, mixed greens, spinach and lots of berries a pinch of banana, a little nut butter and almond milk. It’s a great simple combo that I’ve grown to love. It’s healthy, and refreshing. When my husband would add in his protein powders the shake would instantly taste artificial and cloyingly sweet. Oh, and did I mention it even smells funny. A big NO THANK YOU from me. See how big that is? But everything changed with Naked Nutrition.
Their Naked Whey protein powder has such a light flavor, it’s barely noticeable and what I do notice, I like. It makes my shake even more light and frothy and a little more creamy. I’m so down.
Perhaps, my favorite aspect is the lack of sweeteners. Not even Stevia. Thank you, just thank you. I always add berries and maybe even a little banana to my shakes and that’s all of the sweetness I desire. I don’t want added artificial sweeteners or any sweeteners in my drinks. Naked Whey has none.
Yes, whey protein builds muscle, but did you know that grass fed whey is an immunity and cardiovascular health booster? It’s omega-3s and natural compounds found in grass fed cows are to thank for this. Thanks healthy cows! There have even been studies that show grass fed whey can help in fat loss also. Lean muscle can help with this. When you give your muscles clean protein, they are free to build, repair and maintain.
Naked Whey is cold-pressed and non-denatured, which basically means it’s more easily absorbed by the body. This can aid in less digestive issues that come with some other brands.
Naked Whey comes from small California dairy farms. Naked Nutrition cows are actually grass fed. This is the real deal. No funk faked. These cows are living their best authentic lives and aren’t injected with growth hormones. . And of course, with better digestion comes increased absorption, meaning you’ll get more bang for your buck.
Here’s what they have to say: (and it’s said very well, I might add.)
Naked Whey is sourced from small California dairy farms. Our cows are grass-fed year-round, and raised without growth hormones like rBGH or rBST. Each serving includes 25 grams of protein and 5.9 grams of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs).
Naked Whey is completely free of additives and artificial sweeteners. We are committed to shortening the steps between our farms and you. Don’t let the supplement industry fool you; additives are for their bottom line, not your health.
Taste is very light. Doesn’t overpower the other flavors that I put in my smoothie or a shake. I like that it doesn’t taste processed or fake. It’s not too sweet. I’m a fan of the very efficient nutritional profile. Best protein for building muscle and doesn’t have a bunch of junk. Glad it doesn’t have that bad protein bar flavor some other protein powders do.
In our Vitamix it makes our shakes frothy and light. It doesn’t weigh them down with a heavy or chunky consistency . It’s the cleanest protein powder we’ve ever used. We tried a lot and this is the healthiest. The quality protein per cost is actually very affordable for what you are getting. Thanks to Naked Nutrition my wife is getting more protein and I thank you for that.
It’s doesn’t mix as well without a good blender. It’s not going to add a lot of flavor on it’s own. You need to add in your own flavor. If you just try to mix it in water it will clump up on you. I can live with that. I don’t drink my whey protein that way anyway. There could be problems for lactose intolerant folks.
In closing, I’m a fan girl now. I’m an actual stan of Naked Nutrition. I wasn’t a believer and now I am. Can you believe, I can easily get the recommended protein in my shake now? Amazed. I’m on my way to a more healthy me with Naked Nutrition and every step in that direction is a win for me. I love when a brand comes along and changes the game.
Oh, and they have a lot of other great products that this post showed no love to. Go check NAKED NUTRITION HERE! You might even be bold enough to try their Naked Nutrition Fire Shots! I know I want to.
