Whey Protein – Nature’s Amazing Muscle Builder

Posted by netbucks1 on February 13, 2008

Are you concerned about taking care of your body before and after strenuous activities or workouts? Do you try to avoid supplements that contain additives and possible side effects?

If you are interested in better health and improved physical fitness you have surely heard that bodybuilders and other athletes are turning to a simple, natural supplement called whey protein.


Protein levels are depleted through exercise. Muscles require amino acids to prevent deterioration, give endurance and build mass. Proteins supply these amino acids to the muscles which is why athletes use whey protein.

Commercial whey protein comes from cow’s milk. Whey is the by-product of making cheese and was usually thrown away as a waste product. Now researchers know that whey protein is high quality, natural protein that is rich with amino acids essential for good health and muscle building. It is naturally found in mother’s milk and also used in baby formula. It is being considered for use as a fortifier of grain products because of its considerable health benefits and bland flavor.

Although protein is also found in other foods such as meat, soy and vegetables, whey protein is proven to have the highest absorption (digestion) levels in comparison to all others.


Whey protein has many health benefits including immune support, bone health, sports health, weight management and overall well being.

Because amino acids are ‘building blocks’ for the human body it is sometimes used by patients to speed up the healing of wounds or burns.

The high quality protein that comes from whey makes it a recommended choice for those who need optimal benefits from restricted diets including diabetics, those on weight management diets and even ill patients not able to consume enough protein in their diet to assist with healing.


Whey protein is a food and so it does not have have the risks associated with other supplements. That said, too much of anything carries risks. Extremely high use of whey protein can overload the liver which can cause serious problems. Moderation is always recommended.

If you are lactose intolerant you might try whey protein isolate which has less than 1% lactose and should be tolerable for most users.

Whey protein is a natural and healthy way to bring protein into your diet and increase well being.

How to increase the odds of having a boy or a girl in your favor.

Posted by netbucks1 on February 6, 2007

I have been reading through a book written by Dr Irina Webster and was surprised to find that the methods used for intercourse can have a direct effect on the sex of your offspring. I had heard about this a long time ago, while attending a lecture at ASU with a friend, but had forgotten about it. There is no simple way in which the sex of a child can be guaranteed, but the following system (known as Shettle’s system) may help.
This system is based around the attributes of the sperm. There are two types of sperm, the sperm that carries the X chromosome (female) and that which carries the Y.

There are 6 basic recommendations to follow:
1) Timing – the most critical aspect of the Shettle’s method is to time when you have intercourse. The closer to ovulation that you have sex, the better your chances of having a boy, because ovulation provides the most optimal time for conceiving, and male sperm are faster. If you have intercourse about 3 days prior to ovulation, you may maximize the chances for the slower but tougher female sperm, which are able to survive until the egg appears.
2) The pH of the woman’s tract is also important. A more alkaline environment is generally favorable to fertility and, therefore, favors the quicker, but more delicate, male sperm. For a girl, a douche of very diluted water and vinegar is done just before intercourse. For a boy, a douche of very diluted water and baking soda just before intercourse is indicated.
3) A woman’s tract is more acidic, the closer to the entrance of the vagina that the measurement is taken. Therefore, intercourse with shallow penetration may favor the conception of a girl, and intercourse with deeper penetration is believed to favor a boy being the result.
4) Orgasms in females produce a hormone which makes their vaginal tract more alkaline and therefore more favorable for boys.
5) A high sperm count favors boys. To increase sperm count, Shettle’s method recommends that you abstain from intercourse for up to three to four days before ovulation. Also, men should wear boxers rather than tight underpants.To reduce the sperm count, men should take a hot bath just before intercourse and couples should have as much intercourse as possible until 3 days before ovulation.
6) Drinking a cup of coffee just prior to intercourse tends to favor a boy.

Hello world!

Posted by netbucks1 on February 6, 2007

Well, this is my first ever blog, and I would just like to share a little about myself.

My name is Mark Shell and I am in my early twenties. I live in a small country called New Zealand, which is on the south western edge of the Pacific Ocean, below Australia. I am currently attending college at Waikato University, studying a Bachelor of Management Studies, majoring in economics. I have also attended lectures at ASU and UMD during a trip to USA last year.

With this being my first blog I would love to hear feedback or suggestions.

Thank you
