Brand

The curious minded, problem-solving, entrepreneurial man named Daniel who looked at things in a different way decided when he was eighteen that there had to be a better way to make protein bars. When Daniel gets something in his mind, he follows through with it.

Daniel always had an obsession with fitness and a passion for problem-solving. So, when he was living a busy lifestyle and living off of small snacks and meals, like protein bars, and he realized how they affected his stomach poorly, Daniel decided to make a protein bar that people with a dairy intolerance could eat.

Daniel made his own bars that are low in sugar as well as being free from dairy. They’re also kosher, vegan, gluten and soy-free, and non-GMO. You don’t have to be a competitor, or even a super active person, to decide to live healthier. Eating well should be a priority, not a chore. Once you adjust your lifestyle, you’ll begin to notice changes in how you feel, making it even easier to choose healthily.

Even if you’re dairy intolerant, you still need protein. No Cow gives you your protein with the dairy. There’s also a low sugar content, cacao that is antioxidant-rich, and other ingredients that were hand-picked to contribute positively to the bar. No Cow takes pride in their protein bars because it is important that what you put into your body is good for it.

Gluten-Free

A lot of people believe that they are gluten intolerant, and a lot of these people are misled and mistaken. Actually, only one percent of the population is intolerant of gluten products. If you are part of that one percent, you can eat these bars with confidence.

Even if you aren’t somebody who needs a gluten-free diet, you are still more than welcome to enjoy the benefits that come from such eating habits. Eating less, or no, gluten will improve your good cholesterol levels. It’s important to have good cholesterol because if you have a buildup of the bad cholesterol, you will be more likely to develop serious health risks like a stroke or a heart attack.

Reducing your intake of gluten products can improve your digestive health, improve your energy levels (and even keep your energy up longer), and encourage you to more easily eliminate processed foods and other unhealthy foods from your diets, such as desserts, bread, oils, and fried foods. When you get rid of unhealthy eating habits you won’t even end up missing them once your body starts to experience the positive effects, which is quick.

Vegetables and fruits will have more appeal to you when you’re eating less gluten because they are gluten free as well as being easy to prepare and convenient to snack on. You can reduce your risk of developing certain cancers, heart disease, and even diabetes when you don’t eat gluten. You will even make your body stronger against germs and viruses because you’ll be ingesting more minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants.

Non-GMO

When you see a product that is labeled ‘Non-GMO’, this means that the product does not contain any organisms that have been modified genetically in a laboratory. There are many environmental and health-related risks when it comes to ingesting products that contain organisms that were genetically modified.

It is common for companies to utilize genetic modification in the making of their products. It has been used in many commercial purposes, but most often, in the production of food. Companies use GMOs in order to enhance the foods’ resistance to certain diseases, help crop yields increase, improve the nutritional levels, and to forcefully create desired traits in certain animal species. GMOs are not safe though.

GMO containing foods have been linked to a range of conditions and diseases. This includes gastrointestinal disorders, cancer, infertility, and even organ damage. Foods that contain GMOs also have a much higher level of pesticides and chemicals. Since people are beginning to pay more attention to eating healthier and more natural foods, GMOs are finding themselves being booted out the door.

One more benefit that comes from non-GMO products is that you may find some or many of your symptoms decreasing or disappearing entirely once you’ve begun eating healthier food. Non-GMO products don’t contain growth hormones and antibiotics that are sometimes injected into animal foods that can cause damage to your body and weaken your defenses against diseases.

Soy-Free

The allergens contained in soy have the ability to cause problems like acne, eczema, and asthma. There are some people who can handle it better than others. Soy has a high level of estrogen in it, and there are some people who believe that this extra estrogen causes breast cancer (because breast cancer requires estrogen to form). This theory has not been proven, though.

One reason that people shy away from foods that contain soy is because of an allergy to it. People who have this allergy may also be affected by a number of other symptoms. These symptoms can be mild or severe and can include diarrhea, abdominal pain, wheezing, runny nose, trouble breathing, nausea, vomiting, itching and swelling of the skin, an itchy mouth, and/or reactions on the skin such as rashes and hives. In rare cases, allergies to soy can also cause anaphylactic shock.

A positive side effect that comes from a soy-free diet is that it can help you exponentially in your weight loss efforts, and doing it in a healthy way. When you’re consistently keeping an eye on the foods you’re eating, and avoiding soy products, you will soon find that you have to toss a lot of snacks from your cupboards. Because of this, you’ll automatically have to start opting for healthier snacks and meals.

Vegan

There are way too many products on the shelves these days that are packed with unnecessary and unhealthy ingredients. No Cow, however, keeps it simple by having the best intentions and best ingredients. Instead of choosing genetically modified organisms that are created in laboratories, this company uses ingredients that only Mother Nature can provide. It’s your body that you’re putting these products into, and it’s the only body you get. It can’t hurt to eat healthier. Because No Cow is non-GMO, you can trust that what you’re putting into your body is not harming it.

These bars are fueled by plants, meaning that they are considered vegan. Vegan means to come straight from nature. All of No Cow’s products (energy and protein bars) have ingredients that are plant-based. The company is proud of the composition of their products and the taste they are able to deliver while still being loaded with nutrition.

When companies set out to create vegan products of any kind, they are usually met with the typical resistance because people believe there is no way to make a product that is both vegan and good tasting. No Cow took that challenge and knocked it out of the park. It is difficult, there’s no denying that, but it is worth it.

Dairy-Free

The No Cow protein bar is dairy-free. This is great news for those who are lactose intolerant. However, there are many other benefits that can come from cutting back on, or even eliminating, your dairy intake.

Acne is a problem that people struggle with, no matter age or gender. It is an inflammatory condition caused by oils becoming trapped inside the pores. The oil being trapped results in bacteria being able to grow. The growing bacteria will cause inflammation, which will then turn into acne. Dairy can be a cause of oil buildup in the body. Dairy isn’t always the cause, but it can’t hurt to experiment with your diet to see if it will help.

If your body has trouble breaking down lactose, you will more than likely end up with more gas and uncomfortable bloating. When someone who is sensitive to lactose consumes too much of it, it may inflame the large intestine, causing diarrhea. Obviously, if you struggle with this symptom, you should try cutting back or cutting out dairy.

A gentle nudge is always welcome when it comes to a persons’ weight loss journey. Milk, yogurt, and other dairy products have lactose, which is a natural sugar. Even though it is natural sugar, your body will still benefit from eliminating it.

Dairy products will form mucus and inflammation in parts of your body like your digestive tract and thyroid gland. People who reduce or eliminate their consumption of dairy notice improvements when it comes to their energy levels and metabolic rate, both of which are linked to the thyroid.

Kosher

According to Jewish law, the word Kosher means fit, or proper. When food (or any product) is labeled Kosher, it means that the product is suitable for consumption or use. One of the rules when it comes to Kosher food is that dairy and meat products have to remain separate at all times. This means during preparation and during consumption. When a kitchen is considered Kosher, it means that there are separate dishes, utensils, preparation areas, and cookware for dairy and meat.

In order for an item to be certified as Kosher, every ingredient in every product (as well as the process to prepare the product) need to be Kosher-compliant. Torah law dictates that the only type of meat that is allowed to be consumed is game and cattle that chew the cud and have split hooves. If the animal meets one of the criteria but not the other, it is not permitted to be consumed. Some Kosher animals are cows, sheep, goats, lambs, springbok, and veal.

Torah law also says that a Kosher animal must be killed by a ritual slaughterer. Jewish law doesn’t permit pain to be caused to animals, and this includes the process of butchering them. The animals must be killed in a way that makes them instantly lose consciousness and die quickly. No Cow protein bars are Kosher certified.

Bottom Line

With these protein bars being vegan, gluten and soy-free, dairy-free, free from added sugars, non-GMO, and Kosher, they cater to a very large demographic. Almost any diet would allow No Cow products. They aren’t just healthy, they’re safe.

If you’ve got allergies, sensitivities, or intolerances related to gluten, soy, dairy, or GMOs, then your body will benefit largely from eating No Cow protein bars and other foods like them. As soon as you start noticing the positive changes in your body and energy, choosing healthier products will become easier. Let No Cow help jump start your healthier lifestyle!

No Cow understands that protein bars aren’t for everyone because of their chalky taste. This taste is unavoidable because it comes from the protein itself. No Cow has, however, produced delicious flavors to help counteract this quality. If you take a chance and order these bars just to discover that they aren’t for you, don’t worry. As long as you’ve eaten two or fewer bars, you may request a full refund.
