The BodyHealth Bar New Protein Snack Bars Blondie & Brownie

Introducing the BodyHealth Bar

Looking for the perfect, delicious, protein-filled, low-carb, keto-friendly protein bar?

If you are at all like me, you have occasionally (or routinely) turned to protein and energy bars as a quick, convenient, and easy source of energy and protein to keep you going.

Sadly, I made a few discoveries along the way that turned me off protein bars and forced me to discover other solutions to satiate my cravings:

  • Any protein bar that tasted good was filled with unhealthy sweeteners and lacked real, healthy organic nutrition
  • Conversely, the clean bars that had some form of genuine nutritional value either tasted terrible and chalky or had to be frozen or refrigerated
  • Eating too many protein bars made me feel sick, have gut problems, and left me feeling lethargic
  • The sheer number of hard-to-decipher ingredients in most protein bars was terrifying

So – with that in mind, I decided to research and develop a protein and energy bar that would incorporate my discoveries on the perfect protein and organic nutrition into a tasty, convenient snack that would keep me at peak performance.

What Makes a Protein and Energy Bar Good?

The first step in formulating this bar was deciding what factors are essential in a protein bar. After extensive research and survey, I found the seven most important aspects of the perfect protein bar to be:

  • A delicious flavor
  • Sustained, clean energy
  • High-quality, high-absorption, 100% bioavailable protein
  • High-quality and vegan ingredients
  • Low carbs
  • Convenient in life
  • Hypoallergenic, soy-free

So, I took each one of these and developed what I consider to be the ultimate formula.

Step One: A protein bar with a delicious flavor

Traditionally, there have been two types of protein bars available:

  • Those that taste good but are chock full of sugar, erythritol, preservatives, carbs, and “fake” fiber that transforms into sugar and carbs (ever heard of IMO syrup?)
  • Bars that are clean and nutritious but taste like cardboard, hurt your teeth, and are unpleasant to eat

I want the best of both worlds: a delicious and nutritious protein bar.

So, the first step was a healthy and tasty flavor. I decided on two initial flavors: brownie and blondie.

Protein Brownie

The creation of a low-sugar protein brownie flavor turned out to be quite simple, and involved four simple ingredients:

  • Almond butter
  • Semi-sweet Chocolate chips
  • cocoa extract
  • Monk Fruit Extract

The result? Chocolatey joy with only four grams of sugar. No synthetic sweeteners, and no garbage your body doesn’t like.

Protein Blondie

For those who prefer a less “chocolatey” flavor, we took out the cocoa and crafted the perfect blondie flavor with:

  • Almond butter
  • Semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Cinnamon
  • Monk fruit extract

Together, these healthy ingredients provide a naturally sweet, delicious blondie flavor without the excess harmful sugars or synthetic sweeteners.

Step Two: A protein bar that provides sustained, clean energy

For immediate, sustained energy – the simple answer was high-quality MCT oil.

MCT stands for medium-chain triglycerides, and this type of fat is made up of small fat molecules that are easy to digest and that your body rapidly burns for clean, sustained energy.[[1]]

So, naturally, an abundance of high-quality MCT oil was ideal.

Step Three: A soy-free energy bar with high-quality protein with superior bioavailability

A trick of the protein-bar industry is to promote a single bar as having all the answers to your health and enough protein to build massive amounts of muscle.

Sadly, these advertisements tend to be false.

The BodyHealth Bar isn’t intended to replace meals or have “the equivalent protein to a steak.” Instead, I wanted to craft a bar that was the perfect snack that provides clean-burning energy and a complete protein with high bioavailability.

The answer: Pea protein isolate fortified with PerfectAmino.

The high bioavailability and hypoallergenic properties of pea protein, have made it one of the most popular forms of protein available. Unfortunately, it is low in one of the essential amino acids: methionine. [[2]]

To resolve this, we fortified the bar with PerfectAmino and almonds.

The result: clean, healthy, protein that is perfect for between-meals or snack for dedicated athletes who want a boost.

Step Four: A vegan protein bar with high-quality ingredients

When it comes to formulating a bar that suits as many people as possible, the decision to use only vegan and high-quality ingredients made sense. We also worked to include organic elements wherever possible.

Every single ingredient sourced for this bar is vegan, non-GMO, and kosher certified.

Step Five: A low-carb protein bar

Refined carbohydrates cause spikes in your blood sugar and is an underlying cause of obesity. [[3]] In fact, eating foods that are high in refined carbohydrates has been linked to overeating and increased risk of disease. [[4]]

Limiting refined carbohydrates was a vital aspect of crafting the perfect bar.

How did we accomplish this? The answer is simple: providing healthy sources of complex carbohydrates, avoiding refined carbohydrates, with natural sources of fiber.

We did this with several high-quality ingredients, including:

  • Almond butter
  • Almond meal
  • Chicory root fiber
  • Pea protein isolate

The result: Only 7 net carbohydrates per bar!

Step Six: A convenient, easy-to-use and easy-to-carry protein bar

For any athlete or person on-the-go, a good energy bar must be able to survive in a purse, pouch, or any other convenient storage throughout the day without becoming gooey, overly-soft, or melting.

Further, the bar should not require refrigeration or freezing.

So, after looking deeply into the factors for an ideal formula, we developed a bar that won’t melt,  stays fresh without refrigeration, utterly convenient for the athlete and workaday person.

Sound too good to be true? Well, I tried it myself.

Step Seven: A protein bar with no risk of allergic reactions

More than 50 million Americans suffer from allergies [[5]], so having a bar full of hypoallergenic ingredients played an important role.

Most protein bars contain allergens such as soy, whey, eggs, and peanuts.

After all other steps we’ve taken to craft this ideal formula, avoiding those ingredients was a cinch – leaving our bar allergen-free for a vast majority of Americans. Even some of the most sensitive consumers can safely enjoy this ideal energy bar.

BONUS STEP: Superfood + Antioxidants

Now that we have a delicious, nutritious, power-packed, energy-boosting bar, – we decided to fortify it further with our 100% organic fruit and veggie blend plus antioxidants in the form of sunflower tocopherol (a natural form of Vitamin E that acts as an antioxidant). These additional organic ingredients pack a punch:

  • Maintains overall health and fortifies your immune system
  • Supports heart health
  • Supports gut health
  • Eliminate free radicals that trigger illness and disease

Conclusion: The BodyHealth Bar, an delicious and natural combination of keto brownie, protein bar, energy bar, and health bomb, all rolled into one convenient snack.

After extensive work in formulation and testing, we are proud to announce the new BodyHealth Bar – a healthy, convenient, and clean energy bar.

Whether you’re on a weight loss program or need a healthy snack for you and your kids, the BodyHealth Bar was developed for you.

We formulated it to have all the good and none of the bad, so try one today!

Dr. David Minkoff graduated from the University of Wisconsin Medical School in 1974 and was elected to the “Phi Beta Kappa” of medical schools, the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honors Medical Fraternity for very high academic achievement. He then completed both a Pediatric Residency and Fellowship in Infectious Disease at the University of California at San Diego.

He worked at the University of California and Children’s Hospitals in San Diego as an attending physician in infectious disease while conducting original research on Ribaviron, a broad spectrum anti-viral agent to fight disease. He also co-directed a neo-natal intensive care unit and worked in emergency medicine.

In 1992, Dr Minkoff’s wife Sue, a Registered Nurse, became interested in nutrition and health and began to go to lectures from some of the experts in the field. At the time, Dr Minkoff was pretty fixed in his view of traditional medicine and it took a lot of convincing to get him to come to one of these lectures. After hearing Dr Jeffrey Bland speak, Dr Minkoff had a eureka moment and began pursuing the alternative field with a vengeance. Based on this new knowledge Dr Minkoff and his wife set up a small clinic in 1997 to help some friends with their medical problems. What began as an experiment blossomed into Lifeworks Wellness Center, one of the most successful clinics for complementary medicine in the United States. In the process, he gained expertise in Biological medicine, integrative oncology, heavy metal detoxification, anti-aging medicine, hormone replacement therapy, functional medicine, energy medicine, neural and prolotherapy, homeopathy and optimum nutrition. He studied under the masters in each of these disciplines until he became an expert in his own right. Dr Minkoff is one of the most in demand speakers in the field and wrote an Amazon best selling book called The Search For The Perfect Protein.

The demand for the products and protocols he discovered became a catalyst for founding BodyHealth.Com, a nutrition company that now manufactures and distributes cutting-edge nutritional solutions for the many health problems of today. Dr. Minkoff writes two free online newsletters, “The Optimum Health Report” and ”The BodyHealth Fitness Newsletter”, to help others learn about optimum health and fitness.

Dr. Minkoff is an avid athlete himself and has completed 44 Ironman Triathlons. To keep his fitness maximal, he lives the lifestyle he teachers to others and tries to set an example for others, so they can enjoy a life free of pain and full of energy.

If there is a single factor that could be considered the bedrock of your overall health, it is balance. Consuming the right nutrients in the right proportions creates a balanced environment in which your body can energize, build, repair, and function at its peak.

Unfortunately, each new discovery in nutritional science and biohacking tends to pendulum swing in one or another direction. Either something is entirely bad and should be avoided entirely, or it is a “cure-all” you are urged to take in copious amounts.

When it comes to cholesterol, virtually everyone is aware that too much LDL cholesterol is an indicator of heart disease and that optimizing LDL/HDL levels is critical for heart health.

People avoid foods that are high in cholesterol, exercise, lose weight, and try countless other methods to lower their LDL – which are all met with varying levels of success. But, despite all this, heart disease is still the leading cause of death in the USA.

Today we’re going to discuss a simple, science-backed alternative solution to lowering LDL levels – and it’s all about protein.
