Easy Way to Get More Protein

Egg Whites International - 100% Pure Liquid Egg Whites are the purest and most versatile form of protein IN THE ENTIRE WORLD!

Women on the go and Bodybuilders are the two biggest consumers of 100% Pure Liquid Egg Whites. Why? Because they can mix them in a drink in a matter of seconds and be done with it.

Perfect for losing weight or building muscle.

You can't taste the egg whites! They are NOT slimy as you might think, and they are completely tasteless and odorless. One 8oz cup of 100% Pure Liquid Egg Whites supplies 26 grams of 100% bioavailable pure protein. No fat, No cholesterol, and only 2 grams of carbs (net carbs or otherwise). No more cracking and separating the egg whites from the yolks, and then having to take the time to cook them, eat them, and then clean up the mess.

Most Bodybuilders and low carb dieters today, are cracking and separating a dozen egg whites in the morning and then another dozen before bedtime. That's 14 dozen eggs a week. A lot of work!

Liquid, NOT RAW egg whites are 100% bioavailable. Which means that none of its Amino acids are wasted. Powdered egg whites and protein powders in general, are only 70 to 80% bioavailable at best. The powders only support muscle growth for 2 to 3 hours. Liquid egg whites support muscle growth for up to 4 to 5 hours.

What's the Difference in LIQUID verses RAW Egg Whites?

The human body cannot digest a raw egg white. So, if you like to do the "Rocky Routine" with a raw egg or raw egg white in your drink, you are wasting your time. Because of the Avidin (a glycoprotein) found in a raw egg white, your body cannot digest a raw egg white. Not to mention the threat of Salmonella. You must cook the egg white to neutralize the Avidin and allow your body to digest the protein. Too much Avidin in your system can cause a Biotin deficiency.

Our 100% pure liquid egg whites from Egg Whites International are pasteurized and salmonella tested. The pasteurization process heats the egg white to 126 degrees for 3 ½ minutes. This heat kills the salmonella and neutralizes the Avidin to allow it to be digested by the human body. When you cook an egg white to the point of scrambled eggs, you are overcooking the protein and denaturing the true value of the protein. Therefore, 100% Pure Liquid Egg Whites are liquid but not raw, making them the purest form of protein, known to man.

Instant Breakfast High Protein Meal-on-the-go

What is the best way to use them? In a drink! Most people are looking for the instant breakfast, or a fast high protein meal on the go. It could be a protein powder, or a Slim Fast shake. Most active people, who are using protein powders, are using about 40 grams of protein powder, and mixing it with water or milk. Usually 2 scoops of powder at 20 grams per scoop. However, there is no protein powder in the world today that is better than 70 to 80% bioavailable. And, most only support muscle growth for two to three hours. This means that out of 40 grams of protein powder you are consuming, your body is only using 28 to 32 grams at best!

People are paying $45.00 for a 4lb can of powder. Now you can make stretch your protein powder by using half as much, or only one scoop of protein powder. The 20 grams of protein powder at 70%, gives your body 14 grams. Mix it with one 8 oz cup of liquid egg whites at 26 grams of 100% bioavailable protein, and you now get a true 40 grams of protein in your body. And, the egg whites support muscle growth for up to 4 to 5 hours.

They are also the most versatile form of protein because you can use them in just about anything you want. They make great omelets, they can be used in any cooking or baking recipe in place of a whole egg, and they can be added to almost any cold drink without changing the flavor. You can even drink them by themselves. They will have no real taste by themselves. Your kids will drink them by just adding some chocolate syrup to 8 ounces of liquid egg whites, shake well, and it will taste the same as chocolate milk. What better way to get protein into your kids? Try it with orange juice, tomato juice, fruit and yogurt smoothies, milk, what ever you like to drink, can now be protein enriched.

How Much Protein Should You Consume in a Day?

The average "Active" person requires about 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight per day. Most people except those on the Atkins Diet or the South Beach Diet never come close to that much protein in a day. Bodybuilders take in 1.5 to 3 times that amount. While a non-active elderly person might only need half that amount. Protein is the building blocks for muscle. It is also the primary food to your brain. Remember, protein eats fat and builds muscle.

How Often Can You Supplement with Liquid Egg Whites?

At least twice a day. First meal in the morning and just before bed. This is the most convenient time that you are at home where your refrigerator is located. You don't want to pre-mix a shake to take with you to work or the gym. The egg whites will separate and thicken the longer they are sitting in the powder. You can keep a spare bottle at work if you have a refrigerator. It is better to drink the liquid egg whites at the same time you mix them into your drink.

Proteins are usually digested every 3 to 4 hours. Most diets tell you to eat 5 to 6 times a day. That does not mean you have to eat 5 to 6 full meals a day. It usually means to start with a protein shake in the morning, eat a light healthy lunch, have a protein shake mid day, eat a healthy dinner, and finally, have a protein shake before you go to bed. This will keep your metabolism working to burn fat and build muscle, and you will have more energy. However, you will not build muscle unless you work them. If you are working out at the gym or just exercising at home, it is important that you understand what your muscles need. You must get protein into your body within 30 minutes of your workout, or your workout was a total waste of time. Right after your workout is when your muscles are tingling and looking for proteins to build on. Give it to them!

Why take protein before bedtime? Bodybuilders have known for decades that if you don't put protein into your body before you go to bed, your body will run out of protein about 2 am. Once your body digests all of its available protein, your body thinks it is starving itself. To protect you, your body shuts down and starts storing your fat cells. The blood sugar still needs protein to keep you going, so it starts consuming the only protein source available, your own muscle mass. Basically, you are storing fat and eating muscle.

By drinking a high protein drink with liquid egg whites just before you go to bed, they will support muscle growth for up to 4 to 5 hours. Now the process is reversed for most of your sleep time. Rather than storing fat and eating muscle, the time-release protein from the egg whites, is allowing your body to burn the fat at its normal rate while building on the muscle. That is why bodybuilders eat a dozen egg whites before bedtime. You will get a better night sleep, and wake up more alert and less hungry in the morning.

Serious competitive Bodybuilders, who are using a protein powder before bedtime, are getting up at 2 am and taking another protein drink to sustain them until morning.
