Publisher's Summary

Proteins are the basic building blocks of the human body. But most people are malnourished in amino acids, which are required to form protein - a deficiency that can lead to diabetes, obesity, cancer, and chronic diseases. It's a serious problem for which Dr. David Minkoff offers a powerful solution in The Search for the Perfect Protein. A medical doctor and Ironman triathlete, Dr. Minkoff provides a new appreciation and understanding of these vital components of life and wellness. He examines the healthful or harmful effects of the foods you eat regularly. And he explores the importance of clean proteins in your diet while offering indispensable guidance on where to find them. Not all proteins are created equal, and they're not just for bodybuilders. Whether you're female or male, young or old, an athlete or a couch potato, The Search for the Perfect Protein will lead you to a stronger, healthier life.

Eye opening - Should be taught in school

Recommended reading for everyone who cares about health.
It basically explains why most diseases have their origin in a malfunctioning gut, which in itself is mostly caused by pollution, pesticides, drugs, antibiotics and bad eating habits. Restoring a healthy gut can prevent and often reverse those diseases. This book explains how to do it. A good complementary book is “Eat Dirt” by Josh Axe.

Indeed The Perfect Protein

From my role as a Human Potential Coach and Nutritionist, a health seeker and a father, I could say without remorse this book must be read by everyone if they want to truly understand the role of proteins in our health. Dr Minkoff did a superb job into digesting the science into laymen terms. Once we all understand protein is not evil as it is not fat, but our own unavailability to digest and absorb protein that creates the problems for which we blame protein for. most importantly addresses the solution for the downspiral, a solution that will fit into any nutritional way of living, from paleo to vegan, from fasting days to hard training days.

Excellent content

My holistic dentist recommended this book to me and I read the paper back and I had to have the audiobook. I like the additional content in this audio format. Dr. Minkoff has helped me tremendously with my leaky gut and Lyme disease. His perfect amino product is doing wonders in my body now.

Essential Amino Acids!

The author seems very genuine & has written an excellent book here, about the vital importance of getting the right amino acids in your diet. He has a company which sells supplements including Perfect Amino which he often refers to, but he does acknowledge there are similar products available. Very well read & there are brief interviews with the author himself throughout the audio, a formula which works well. Right, time to order my amino pills, and yes I'm not joking!

One of the most profound books since Loren Cordain’s The Paleo Diet

As a life long student passionate about complementary medicine, this has been the most profound book I’ve read/listened to on the subject since reading Loren Cordain’s work in 2011. I’ll definitely be pleading with all of my loved ones to take a read. I’ve also started taking the perfect aminos and noticing the changes. Dr Minkoff is one incredible human!
