What’s A Good Protein Product To Give My Son With ADHD?

Q: What’s A Good Protein Product To Give My Son With ADHD?


A: Most ADHD children are athletes so this is a very good question that I have been dying to answer! I do not know why haven’t blog about this sooner. I use a unique amino acid supplement called PeptoPro from Protein Factory. Often times teen athletes are told by their coaches to start on 40g or more of either a protein drink or bar 3-4 times day to “Bulk” up. I adamantly disagree!! For one thing those drinks and bars are loaded with sugar and have artificial color, flavor, and preservatives which is horrible for ADD/ADHD. Children and teenagers have no business taking in that large amount of protein. Their organs are still developing and that amount of protein is very hard on their kidneys and other organs. Plus I was told by a Biochemist that teaches at University of North Carolina that your body can only process 17-20g of protein at a time. However, I do agree with the the masses in the body building world that an individual wanting to achieve LARGE body mass should consume protein every 2-3 hrs. 

So why does an individual need to drink or eat all that protein? Because in order for your body to build muscle mass it has to break down the protein first and convert it to amino acids. PeptoPro allows your body to skip the process of breaking down protein and provides you with “water soluble” amino acids. This is the first amino acid product of it’s kind out there today. Other amino acids are not water soluble. Being water soluble makes the protein more digestible because they are quickly taken up by the gut and are released into your bloodstream WITHOUT digestion (just like Biometics). It totally bypasses the exhausting burden that your body must go through to digest protein. As soon as I read “water soluble” I ordered this product. The whole reason why I’m so in love with Biometics Liquid Supplements line is because of their patent process that converts all fat soluble vitamins to water soluble allowing your body to absorb your supplements quickly and also lets you flush out what your body doesn’t use.

If you have more question, just call the company. That’s what I did and they transferred me to some guy (Alex) that was more than willing to answer any of my questions or concerns. I asked him how much should my entire family take. He said 1 tsp 2-3 times daily. He said friends of his that were body builders take 3 tsp (1 tbsp) total a day. He said he also gives this to his son just because it’s good for him. Because PeptoPro is the BEST mixing protein EVER it will actually turn clear when mixed in water and mixes up so quickly. He gives 1 tsp to his son in his favorite juice once a day. Also this product can be used before work out, during work out, and after work out. Take PeptoPro on an empty stomach. If you eat food especially protein before taking PeptoPro, your body will have to focus on breaking down the protein first before it can absorb the amino acids. You should wait about 20-30 mins before you eat.

You can mix this stuff right up in your Biometics AM drink or right before bed in your Cal/Mag after it stops fizzing. Ooor you can make a protein shake with it. For example, if Charlie wants a shake he will pour 6-8ozs of either unsweetened coconut milk, soy milk, rice milk, almond milk, etc into his Bullet (Target). He will add less than 1/8 tsp of “Pure”Stevia Extract powder http://nunaturals.com/product/46. Because this stuff is “Pure it’s extremely powerful!!!! A bottle will last you FOREVER. He will sometimes add 1 tbsp of organic peanut butter. Mix all this up in your bullet for 30 secs. It’s soooo delicious. If he’s feelin like his taste buds want chocolate flavoring, he will add anywhere from 1 tsp to 1/2 tbsp of Chatfield’s Carob & Compliments Powder (No chocolate, cocoa, or caffeine).

Enthusiastically yours,

Shirley Highers
