Even if you used Optimum’s Natural Whey protein (which is a mid-grade protein without the artificial sweetners) in place of Organic Warrior Whey you’d still be better off than using the Procomplex Gainer because of all the other whole foods in the shake. However, after doing my research and looking for a high quality, organic whey protein… I truly believe Warrior Whey is one of the best proteins on the market. Ori Hofmekler, the creator of this protein, even has the certifications to prove that they are grass fed cows and that the protein contains what they claim it does. Hope this helps with your decision!
Hi Ali: Regarding the mint studies…I just saw this on Suppversity…regarding the difference between mints effects on male and female rats…..Spearmint (M. spicata): At least in women spearmint tea has been shown to increase estrogen and luteinizing hormone in the follicular phase of their menstrual cycle (Aktodgan. 2007). In a 2004 study that was conducted on male rodents, on the other hand, the daily administration of peppermint tea (M. spicata) for a period of 30days lead to significant increases in luteinizing and follicle stimulating hormone and increases in serum testosterone, yet with the serious downside of “extensive degenerative changes in the germinal epithelium and spermatogenesis arrest compared with the findings in the testicular biopsies of the control group” (Aktogan. 2003) interesting for sure!
