Launches New Whey Bars with Free Shipping on 3-Packs

Chicago, IL, December 30, 2010 --( launches the New Whey Bar -- the first pure whey and dark chocolate protein bar in the market -- with Free Shipping and Handling on orders with Whey Bar 3-Packs (36 Whey Bars) from December 30, 2010 to January 1, 2011.

Whey Bars were formulated to help you meet your protein needs without compromising flavor and taste -- a common fault among most commercial protein bars. “Anyone can enjoy these delicious and nutritious whey snacks -- athletes, kids, dieters, vegetarians, the elderly, or anyone looking for an alternative to whey protein shakes,” says natural health expert Dr. Joseph Mercola, who founded in 1997.

Whey Bites uses the same formulation, but a nice crunch is supplied with the addition of cocoa nibs, and provides children with an excellent alternative to unhealthy candy bars.

Dr. Mercola explains that your protein needs “vary according to your activity level and Nutritional Type.” For active people, laboratory measurements point out the need to increase daily protein requirements.

Adults need about 88 grams of protein per day or around 30 grams per meal. Those who do weight training may need around 115 grams. “Even if you’re not an athlete and don’t do weight training, you still need the right proteins delivered in the most effective way for you to have adequate energy,” Dr. Mercola advises.

Whey protein is nature’s richest source of biologically active protein. It helps develop and sustain muscle mass because it is easy to digest and contains all the essential amino acids.

Whey also supports your immune system by raising your glutathione levels. Found in every cell, gluthathione is your body’s master antioxidant and detoxifier.

Organic dark chocolate is added to the formulation because of its resveratrol, an antioxidant that helps protect your cells from free radical damage, boost your immune system, and support cardiovascular health.

Whey Bars and Whey Bites use a completely natural sweetener. Luo Han, a fruit extract 300 times sweeter than sugar, is a completely safe alternative to artificial sweeteners that won't raise your blood sugar levels.

Unlike other heavily-processed protein bars, Whey Bars are minimally cold-processed with a temperature of below 45 degrees C (113 degrees F) to preserve the bioavailability of the nutrients in chocolate and whey. They don’t contain harmful additives and ingredients such as high fructose corn syrup, MSG, soy, and vegetable oil.

Whey Bars eliminate the need to prepare a whey protein shake after a workout -- the optimal time to consume high-quality protein. “They’re also good, filling snacks that will provide a quick boost of energy to meet your needs during a busy week,” adds Dr. Mercola.

Enjoy Free Shipping and Handling on your entire order when you buy a Whey Bar 3-Pack until January 1, 2011, 11:59 PM CST.
