Formula 1 Review: Herbalife’s Soy-Based Protein Solution

Posted by on April 22, 2021 in Stuff with 0 Comments

Soy is one of those ingredients that seems to have inspired a lot of weird myths, rumors, and misconceptions.

Some people will tell you that soy raises your estrogen levels, even though the vegetable estrogen found in soybeans have little to do with the human hormone of the same name, and you would have to eat around nine times as much soy as you'd find in a typical Japanese diet to see any such effects.

Some people think that it causes prostate cancer, even though Asia eats way more soy than America and has a fraction as many cases of prostate cancer per capita.

Formula 1 is one of many Herbalife products based on soy, and it's essentially just a great re-fueler for trips to the gym. Here's what you get in an eight-ounce Formula 1 shake:

  • 17g of protein
  • 15mg of vitamin C
  • 3g of fiber
  • 350mg of calcium
  • 5 IU of vitamin E
  • 1750 IU of vitamin A
  • Plus more than a dozen assorted vitamins and minerals to boot

Why Soy?

There are a lot of benefits to basing Formula 1 on soy as its core ingredient. To list a few:

  • Omega 3. This is the same stuff you get from fatty fish and walnuts. It's critical to circulation and getting oxygen to the brain. A nice thick salmon steak is always good, but if you don't have any fish on hand, soy is a handy alternative.
  • Your body uses soy protein the same way it would animal protein. This makes it a perfect alternative if you're vegan or vegetarian, or if you're just getting tired of the same old hamburgers and tuna salad to pack on mass.
  • The mild flavor of soy makes it an unobtrusive ingredient no matter what you want to add it to. Throw it in a strawberry milkshake, a bowl of chicken soup, or some meatloaf, and it won't ruin the flavor, but rather, absorb the flavor of whatever it's combined with.
  • Soy is environmentally friendly. It is more efficient in terms of water and land usage for farming when compared to beef, and produces fewer greenhouse gases.

Soy's purpose in most diets is to fill certain gaps. Maybe you're not getting enough protein, maybe you're not getting enough calcium, maybe you're not getting enough antioxidants. Whatever the case, soy is a convenient, inexpensive way to cover the distance, and that's essentially what Formula 1 is there for, just check out the Herbalife reviews.

Calorie counting is a good idea. Marking down exactly how many grams of protein you need for your fitness goals is smart. But it can be difficult to get enough protein, calcium, fiber, and vitamins from meals alone, especially when you need an extra boost after a hardcore workout, and that's where Herbalife products can help.
