ORGANIC WHEY PROTEIN
High quality protein is one of the most important nutrients to consume throughout the day. Protein raises protective HDL cholesterol, lowers triglycerides, improves insulin action, promotes lean muscle growth, and creates satiety and blood sugar balance. Thunder is rich in whey protein, which has the most health benefits of any protein studied. Whey protein may increases longevity, enhance liver and heart glutathione concentrations as well. Whey protein is rich in cysteine and leucine, which support the detoxification of mercury and other toxic metals from the body. Whey protein is also virtually lactose free, and is therefore well tolerated by those who are lactose intolerant. Thunder is nearly free of the allergenic milk protein casein, and is often well tolerated by those who are dairy sensitive.
Potassium is a key nutrient in maintaining the body’s electrolyte balance. It may also help in regulating heart and muscle contraction, aide in the conduction of nerve impulses and maintaining proper fluid exchange.
An essential mineral that supports the formation of bones, teeth, and muscle tissue. Helps regulate heartbeat, muscle action, nerve function, and blood clotting.
Magnesium plays a variety of roles in the body. Not only is it critical for energy production and proper nerve function, it also promotes muscle relaxation and helps the body produce and use
insulin. Magnesium is involved in the formation of bones and teeth, the clotting of blood, and the regulation of heart rhythm. Magnesium, sometimes taken in combination with calcium, is often used to treat such ailments as back pain, high blood pressure, depression, anxiety and panic, muscle cramps, and migraine headache.
Promotes growth and repair of body tissue, healthy eyes, bone growth, protein synthesis, night vision, and a strong immune system. Helps reduce susceptibility to infection. Essential for healthy skin, blood, bones, teeth, kidneys, bladder, lungs, and membranes.
As a key anti oxidant, vitamin E appears to play a modest but noteable role in protecting the body from many chronic disorders. It may even slow the aging process and guard against damage from secondhand smoke and other pollutants. According to test-tube studies, the tocotrienols (al pha-tocotrienol ,specifically)appear to be the most powerful of the vitamin E anti oxidants.
Circulatory disorders, skin and joint problems, diabetes-related nerve complications, high cholesterol, endometriosis, immune-system function, and memory are also believed to benefit from vitamin E.
Maintains brain function (memory), digestion, nerve function, growth, muscle tone, and a healthy nervous system. Necessary to convert food, sugar, and starch into energy. Alcohol can cause deficiencies of this vitamin.
Maintains energy, hormone, and amino acid production. Helps the body obtain energy from protein, carbohydrates, and fats. Helps maintain good vision, red blood cells, and healthy skin.
Shown to improve circulation and reduce the cholesterol level in the blood, maintain the nervous system, metabolize protein, sugar &fat and reduce high blood pressure. Helps regulate the digestive system and increases energy through proper utilization of food.
Necessary to produce important hormones, Vitamin D, and red blood cells. Essential for a variety of body functions, including the maintenance of a healthy digestive system, and converting food to energy.
Supports glycogen and nitrogen metabolism. Also necessary for the production and maintenance of red blood cells (hemoglobin),amino acids, nerve function and tissues, and antibodies. Essential for the body ’s utilization of protein. Women taking oral contraceptives may have lower levels of B6.
Not only does vitamin B12 help in the formation of healthy red blood cell s (which protect against anemia), it is al so involved in the maintenance of the myelin sheath, the fatty substance that covers nerves and enables them to function properly. The body also needs this vitamin for cell replication, proper energy metabolism, and to create the genetic material in cells known as DNA and RNA. Vitamin B12 is also of potential value in treating the effects of aging and Alzheimer ’s
disease, as well as depression, the skin disorder known as rosacea, tintinitus (ringing in the ears),and various neurologic probems. It may also help to prevent heart disease and boost the
Folic acid is a water-soluable vitamin belonging to the B-complex group of vitamins.
These vitamins help the body break down complex carbohydrates into simple sugars to be used for energy. Excess B vitamins are excreted from the body rather than stored for later use. This is why sufficient daily intake of folic acid is necessary.
A water-soluble B vitamin that plays an important role in assisting enzymes that metabolize fats, proteins, and carbohydrates. Helps in the transfer of carbon dioxide and in various metabolic chemical conversions.
An anti-oxidant that helps synthesize hormones, amino acids, and collagen, as well as the excretion of excess cholesterol. Helps heal wounds, strengthen blood vessels, build connective tissue, and promotes healthy gums, skin, teeth, and bones. Helps protect against infection and enhances immunity. Aids in the body ’s absorption of iron. Vitamin C is water soluble, which means it cannot be stored by your body and must be frequently replaced.
Proprietary blend of 72 key trace minerals derived from the mineral saturated waters of the Great Salt Lake. Proper mineral supplementation is vital for good health. Minerals are essential for the body ’s neurological and electrolyte functions and the utilization of vitamins by the body.

Digestive enzymes digest your food. With age you lose natural digestive enzymes. Supplemental digestive enzymes restore these lost enzymes and help nutritional and gastric disorders like heartburn, indigestion and obesity. When you eat a meal, digestive enzymes that are released from your salivary glands, stomach, and small intestine immediately get to work to speed up the digestive process. Each enzyme acts on a specific type of food.
The lack of enzymes leads to poor digestion, poor absorption, as well as accumulation of undigested food, material, and metabolic waste. This can lead to food allergies, overgrowth of parasites, yeast and unfriendly bacteria, indigestion, constipation, belching, bloating and many other health problems.
THUNDER ’S ENZYME BLEND
It is responsible for digesting proteins in your food, which is probably one of the most difficult substances to metabolize. Because of this, protease is considered to be one of the most important enzymes that we have. This will help to clean up your blood stream, and restore your energy and balance.
Allows digestion of carbohydrates during their transit through the gastrointestinal tract.
A lipid (fat digesting enzyme. Incomplete digestion of fat allows fat to coat food particles and therefore interferes with the hydrolysis of other food components such as protein and carbohydrates.
To help digest the cellulose in the diet.
An enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of sucrose into glucose and fructose.
To help digest maltose resulting from the amylase hydrolysis of starch.
To assist in the digestion of lactose from milk and other dairy products.
Is one of a group of proteolytic enzymes capable of digesting protein.
Beneficial bacteria, such as Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium bifidum, are called probiotics. Probiotic bacteria favorably alter the intestinal microflora balance, inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria, promote good digestion, boost immune function, and increase resistance to infection. People with flourishing intestinal colonies of beneficial bacteria are better equipped to fight the growth of disease-causing bacteria. Probiotic bacteria also produce substances called bacteriocins, which act as natural antibiotics to kill undesirable microorganisms. Probiotics also promote healthy digestion.
