|Drinking Blank Ants?|
Does that sound crazy?
Why would someone consider drinking Black Ant powder?
What are the benefits and what does it do?
I had read that Black Ant Powder had some amazing benefits such as:
-High in absorbable protein
-Rich source of Zinc
-Aids in the production of energy especially before exercise
|So after hearing the benefits, I thought I might consider giving Black Ant a try. But before I did I thought I’d do some more research. Now I wasn’t able to find too much conventional research on Black Ant Powder. However, what I did find seem intriguing Polyrhachis vicina. These ants live up high in the mountains and are often found among ginseng roots. The premiere Qi tonic of Chinese Herbalism.|
*While ginseng is the most well-known, and a premiere Qi tonic by itself, Ant is known to be even stronger and more effective.
|The nutritional consistency is that Black Ant is a good source of Vitamins:|
-B1, B2, B12, D and E
-Complete Protein Source (42-67% by mass)
-Contains all 9-Essential Amino Acids and 17 of 22 total amino acids
-Rich source of Calcium, Phosphorus, Iron, Manganese, Selenium, Zinc and other trace elements
In fact, it’s considered by some to contain the highest amount of zinc.
|Purported Benefits of Black Ant Powder Include: |
Premiere energy tonic (provides direct ATP)
* Strength builder
*Double direction immune system modulation
*May build stress resistance
* Superior Liver and Kidney tonic in Chinese Medicine*
|Other good sources of Zinc:|
Oysters – 6 medium oysters providing 32 mg
Alaskan King Crab – 7.6 mg
Raw mushrooms – Highest among vegetables but low overall (0.4 mg)
Kale – High among vegetables but low overall (0.3 mg)
Raw black ant powder contains 120mg-180mg of zinc per 1000 grams.
Which is the highest of any food and 4x Oysters, the second-highest!
|What does all this mean?|
It’s hard to say….In full transparency, I have now taken Black Ant powder for almost a month. Also, it tastes like dirt. I masked the taste and used it in conjunction with Pur Pre Workout Drink. Pur Pre Workout has a stronger cherry-pineapple taste and Branch Chain Amino Acids, Beet Root powder. Furthermore, it is sugar-free and Sucralose free making it healthy, Keto and Paleo-friendly.
Q) Does it make me feel better?
A) Maybe. I certainly don’t feel worse.
Q) Has it made me stronger?
A) Hard to tell.
Q) Has it helped me with zinc?
A) Once again, hard to tell.
Since I eat grass-fed beef at least once a week and use Pur-Zealander Grass Fed Protein (which is loaded with Zinc)Now I wouldn’t start with just Black Ant Powder.It is the 41st most important thing to do, with the top three being:
Omega 3 Molecularly Distilled Cold Processed Fish Oil
Australian Macadamia Nut Oil Cold Pressed
SG High Octane MCT Oil 500ML Bottle
It doesn’t work in a vacuum.I hope this helps!
