Amaize On The Go contains NO SOY 

IMPORTANT – AMAIZE DRINK ON THE GO – CONTAINS NO SOY1!!

Amaize drink on the go is formulated with 19 amino acids which includes the 9 essential amino acids that cannot be made by the body and must come from food.  In similar products the essential amino acids are normally obtained from soy protein and soy protein and soy isolate. Amaize drink on the go obtain its essential amino acids from milk and it contains no soy or soy isolate.

We are not medical practitioners and do not want to go into the details of all the health concerns about the consumptions of soy and/or soy isolate.  For us it is sufficient that there are many people that warn about the dangers of using soy and soy isolate and eminent people like Prof Tim Noakes are very concerned about the safety of soy and soy isolate.

Prof Noakes writes the following in his book:  The Real Meal Revolution

Soya is never recommended by anyone who has a shred of scientific nutritional knowledge.  Firstly, it is a very poor source of protein and should not be confused with “real” animal protein and secondly this is no alternative at all.  Soybeans are a very cheap crop to grow, and over 95% is genetically modified.  But evern “oganic” soya has toxic phytochermicals, and an extensive list of problems is associated with its use, including:

  • Suppression of thyroid hormones (causing hypothyroidism and goiters)
  • Digestive distress
  • Immune system breakdown
  • Severe allergies
  • ADD and ADDHDHD (attention deficit disorder and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder)
  • Higher risk of heart disease
  • Malnutrition (phytates present prevent absorption of protein, calcium, magnesium, iron and zinc)
