    Dr. Axe,
    I was part of a ketotic weight loss study. Sadly the effects of which were a significant loss in muscle mass. In addition, now my base metabolic rate is 1200 calories. Can you suggest ways to increase not only my muscle mass but also my metabolic rate while somehow not gaining fat due to the large amounts of food I will need to eat so as to provide my body with adequate nutrition to enable rapid muscle growth?

      Hi Dave,
      I’ve been using nutritional cleansing products for a year and a half now. The protein I use is undenatured whey. This is the best protein to use if you want to gain lean muscle since our bodies can absorb 80% of it, as opposed to 20% with other whey protein. Cleansing helps us to absorb nutrients and burns sugar and fat. This combination is great for boosting metabolism and building lean muscle. It would be perfect for what you’re looking for.

    Can I just use almond milk and get the same result?

  3. Rolando says:

    Is there a powder form version that has all of these benefits?

    I am using raw protein from garden of life. Would it make a difference if I add that into the Superhuman Shake?

  4. Bee says:

    What do you recommend for an egg substitute if you are allergic to eggs?

  5. Is this a good idea for women also? Can you boil the eggs too before putting them in? Would it not have the same protein? I am not aware of a health benefit for raw eggs, is there one? Thanks for all your great recipes. S~:)

    Is this good for 10yr old who is playing a lot of tennis?

  7. beth says:

    I typically do not prescribe to the calorie model,but
    at just over 1,000 calories, (twice a day?) I think I will leave this shake for the men, plus all of the
    other recommended meals I am sure I would be
    putting on a lot more than muscle.
    Thank you

  8. Derrick says:

    Youve changed the recipe to add chia seeds (awesome) and sprouted almond butter as opposed to regular almond buttet and but eliminated the banana…curious, whats the reason..added bonuses or the old recipe was not adequate?

  9. Laureen says:

    Dr. Mercola says adding raw eggs with protein powder can slow down the absorption of the protein. I’m wondering what your thoughts are on this?


    • There are several studies showing you’re best consuming multiple forms of protein for building muscle. The fats from eggs yolks may slow absorption but that is good except when taken right before a workout or during a workout.

  10. Derrick says:

    To add to previous comment, i always thought this may have been too much protein for a type 2 diabetic, in the old version, so i only used 2 eggs and one scoop of powder……..your thoughts please!!!!

  11. deb says:

    I thought raw eggs have salmonella?

  12. Yani says:

    Can this protein be given to a man with diabetes that is only 138lb and needs to get muscles and feels weak most of the time. Also for young adults with ADHD. Thank you so much for all your advise our Holly Father continue to bless you. I really believe that God can heal us with the right food..

  13. trish says:

    What do you recommend if you have an allergy to eggs?

  14. Virginia Halsey says:

    Husband is 70 and on pd dialysis only weighs 125 weighed 123 when started 7 months ago on dialysis, , he uses body fortress whey powder is their another one that will help him gain more he is always low on protein when test comes back , we do have to watch phosphorous and potassium. If you know high protein that will not hurt kidney dialysis patients please let me know.

  15. alvern88 says:

    Can woman body builders /physique in training benefit from this shake? Or any women for that matter?

  16. Shannon says:

    I am sensitive (not allergic) to whey & casein… What milk substitute would you recommend best for this recipe. Coconut milk? I am using the RAW brand protein powder (dairy free).

  17. Patricia Anderson says:

    I just purchased three bags of Collagen Protein but did not get any information with it when it arrived. When trying to find something here on your website, I still had no luck even finding the product. I realize this is Christmas Eve and don’t expect to hear back right away but hope to hear soon. Thanks
