What's in it?
Does it work?
Whey Protein Increases Strength and Builds Muscle
Whey protein is the most efficient way to add protein to your diet without extra calories from carbohydrates or fats. Our whey protein concentrate is 80% protein thus providing the body with what it needs to build muscle and strength, while recovering quickly after a workout. Whey protein works better than both protein casein and soy protein products. Adding protein to your diet can help promote gains in muscle mass and slow down the natural loss of muscle that occurs as you age.
Whey Protein Burns Fat
A 2014 study found that adults supplementing with whey experienced significant decreases in body fat and body weight. The results were even more significant among adults who combined whey protein supplementation with resistance exercise.
Whey Protein Reduces Cravings
Whey protein seems to affect both ghrelin and leptin, two hormones that help regulate your appetite. Leptin primarily affects energy balance, which helps suppress food intake, while gherlin regulates hunger and plays a role in meal initiation. These hormones work together to tell your body when it needs to eat. Studies show that in obese patients, the circulating levels of leptin are typically increased, whereas ghrelin levels are decreased. Whey helps balance out leptin and gherlin secretion, thereby decreasing hunger cravings and helping you stop overeating.
Whey Protein Stabilizes Blood Sugar Levels
Whey is able to stabilize blood sugar levels when it’s consumed right before meals with a high glycemic index. It stimulates the production of insulin and prevents dramatic spikes in blood sugar levels.
Whey Protein Improves Energy
Whey protein increases glycogen, which is a source of energy during exercise or heavy activity, and it enhances the effect of leptin, a hormone that affects energy balance. Plus, because whey is easily digested and accessed by the body, it is converted into energy quickly and can help naturally boost energy levels.
Whey Protein Boosts Glutathione
Whey protein helps increase the production of glutathione, the master antioxidant that is found in every cell of your body. Research shows that whey protein is rich in cysteine, an amino acid that’s needed for the synthesis of glutathione. Scientists at Ohio State University found that supplementing with hydrolyzed whey protein isolate increased intracellular glutathione concentrations by 64 percent.
Glutathione helps eliminate free radicals that cause cell damage, cancer and aging diseases, such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. It also helps protect your body from environmental toxins and drug resistance, and it’s critical for a strong immune system.
Whey Protein Boosts Immunity
Because whey protein promotes the synthesis of glutathione, it works to boost your immune system. Glutathione also boosts the efficacy of other antioxidants like vitamin C, CoQ10, ALA and vitamin E. Whey protein also contains a number of other proteins and vitamins, such as vitamin D, that positively affect immune function and demonstrate antimicrobial activity.
Not only does whey increase the production of glutathione, but it also contains L-arginine and L-lysine, amino acids that promote immune function.
Whey Protein Improves Heart Health
Studies show that whey protein promotes a reduction in blood pressure and arterial stiffness and improves lipid profiles. It works to reduce cardiovascular risk factors by protecting your muscles and helping you lose weight. Reductions in body weight reduces obesity-related problems like heart disease.
Whey Protein Extends Life Span
Whey protein has been found to increase life span by reducing muscle wasting that’s associated with aging and increasing nutrient absorption without increasing hunger. This is important because as you age, you lose bone mass, cell function and your digestive function decreases. However, whey has been shown to reduce the loss in all of these areas, making it an incredible superfood that slows the aging process.
