Is it good for you!

Maltodextrin is a white, starchy powder that manufacturers include in many gym supplement drinks to improve flavour, thickness and shelf life. To make maltodextrin, manufacturers put starch through a process called hydrolysis. Hydrolysis uses water, enzymes, and acids to break the starch into smaller pieces, resulting in a white powder consisting of sugar molecules. However, if a person eats too many products that contain maltodextrin, their diet is likely to be high in sugar, low in fibre, and full of highly processed foods. This type of diet can increase a person's risk of high Cholesterol, weight gain and type 2 diabetes. Maltodextrin has an even higher glycemic index (GI) than table sugar. This means that maltodextrin can cause a sharp increase, or spike, in people's blood sugar shortly after they comsume products that contain it.
Sucralose is an artificial sweetner/sugar substitute found in a lot of health/performance or fitness supplements and is marketed as no calories or Diet. The majority of ingested sucralose is not broken down by the body (so it is noncaloric) and is made from sugar in a multi-step chemical process in which 3 hydrogen-oxygen groups are replaced with chlorine atoms. Its known to the UK by E955 and produced by chlorination and is about 320 to 1,000 x sweeter than sugar and addicts you to sugar, certainly giving you cravings. Evidence of benefit is lacking for long-term weight loss, however theres data supporting weight gain and heart disease risks and ingestion of Chlorine.
Xanthan gum is used in many health, wellness, bodybuilding and fitness supplements. This is a food additive (a substance that doesn't occur naturally in food) and an effective thickening agent to prevent ingredients from separating (like a glue). Its also an E number, E415 to be precise and we all know E numbers are not good for us. Its proven that Xantham gum dust is linked to respiratory symptoms and the FDA in the states have warnings in place not to give it to babies as it can cause Necrotizing Enterocolitis (a medical condition where a portion of the bowel dies). It also increases the risk of digestive problems if consumed in high amounts.
You will see in the picture (to the left) calcium silicate which is an anti caking agent. New research studying the nanoparticles in our food supply prove that anti-caking agents are more harmful than previously thought. It also has other industrial uses and is commonly used as a safe alternative to hazardous asbestos for high temperature insulation materials. ... It reacts with calcium hydroxide or carbonate to form calcium silicatehydrate, sealing the pores with a relatively impermeable material. It's also found in a shoe box and states on the packet in great big letters DO NOT EAT.
Aspartame is an artificial sweetener used in diet products and supplements promoting zero calories. Its 200 times sweeter than natural sugar, addictive and derives from the waste products of genetically modified E.Coli bacteria.

There are many anecdotal reports of it causing stomach upsets, headaches and other problems and has been linked to cancer, seizures, headaches, depression, ADHD, dizziness, weight gain and birth defects.

It's also a proven carcinogen which is a substance capable of causing CANCER.
95% of SILICON DIOXIDE also known as SILICA is used in the production of concrete. The other 5% is used as either the content of the packet you find in a shoe box to collate moisture or as an Anti Caking agent in PROTEIN supplements to prevent the formation of lumps.
Acesulfame potassium (also known as acesulfame K, or ace K) is an artificial sweetener, sometimes referred to in Europe as E950. It is around 200 times sweeter than sugar and is used to give food and drinks including supplements a sweet taste without adding calories. Acesulfame K contains the carcinogen methylene chloride. Long-term exposure to methylene chloride can cause headaches, depression, nausea, mental confusion, liver effects, kidney effects, visual disturbances, and cancer in humans.
