Whey protein, derived from milk, is one of the highest quality proteins available. Over the past several years, numerous research studies have demonstrated the significant health benefits of whey protein. In addition to being an excellent source of high-quality protein, whey also contains significant amounts of the branched-chain amino acids (BCAA’s) leucine, isoleucine, and valine. Whey protein contains key building blocks for glutathione synthesis, and contains important immune supporting factors.† Overall, whey protein is one of the most versatile sources of protein, due to the many health benefits it provides. As part of a comprehensive weight management program, bodybuilding regimen, or as a way to meet daily protein requirements, whey protein can help support optimal health and wellness.†
- Contains ultra-filtered whey protein concentrate sourced from Fonterra, a New Zealand-based co-op of over 11,000 dairy farmers.
- Rich in branched chain amino acids isoleucine, leucine and valine.
- Guaranteed free of rBGH (recombinant bovine growth hormone). As there is no accurate way to test for rBGH, to ensure this hormone is not being used, it must be sourced from a country i.e. New Zealand, where it is illegal to use.
- Contains NO Genetically Modified Organisms (Non-GMO).
- Also available in natural chocolate and vanilla flavors as a concentrate / isolate mix.
- Gluten free.
- Whey protein is one of the highest quality proteins, which studies have shown help support the growth and maintenance of lean muscle tissue.†
- Rich in BCAA’s which are used to fuel working muscles and stimulate protein synthesis within muscle tissue.†
- Whey contains high amounts of leucine which helps maintain lean muscle mass, provides an energy source for working muscles and initiates the biochemical processes that “fires up” protein synthesis.†
- A rich source of glutamine, an amino acid which helps support lean muscle mass and provides support for healthy immune and gastrointestinal function.†
- Whey protein is a source of gamma-glutamylcysteine, a building block for the synthesis of glutathione, the body’s most powerful natural antioxidant. Glutathione is also essential for supporting liver detoxification, a biochemical pathway that helps neutralize potentially toxic substances and prepares them for excretion.†
- Whey protein contains several immunoglobulins (immune proteins) such as beta-lactoglobulin, alpha-lactalbumin and bovine serum albumin which help support normal, healthy immune function.†
