The Truth About Protein

  • Auburn Total Health 161 Palm Avenue Auburn, CA, 95603 United States (map)

Most people, when asked what they think is the single most important thing they need in their diet, will respond "protein." However, when asked to explain what they understand about protein, usually have difficulty with any details.

There is so much misinformation about what protein is, how much protein we need and what are the best sources? In this seminar, we'll examine the myths vs the scientific facts around protein.

In this seminar, you will learn:

> The history of protein research and propaganda.
> What the true human protein requirements are for optimal health.
> The best sources of protein that have no adverse effects.
