Advanced Whey isn’t your average protein powder. It is a high-quality whey protein designed to capitalize on the benefits of immune-supporting nutrients naturally found in whey. The combination of whey protein concentrate rich in alpha-lactalbumin, whey protein isolate and lactoferrin isolate results in a protein that is 20% alpha-lactalbumin and contains up to 28% more lactoferrin than other high-end whey protein powders currently available. Advanced Whey is now made without the use of soy-based ingredients.
Whey protein is an excellent addition to a lactovegetarian diet or any diet that is lacking in protein. It is often used as a weight loss food, and also provides valuable support for muscle building and maintenance, whether in the gym or for the elderly and frail.
The widespread health applications of whey protein are heavily dependent on its lactoferrin and alpha-lactalbumin content. Recent findings indicate that lactoferrin suppresses inflammation and reduces cholesterol levels. Scientists have determined that lactoferrin stimulates anti-inflammatory cytokines and inhibits pro-inflammatory cytokines. Lactoferrin’s effects on cholesterol levels seem to be based on its ability to reduce the oxidation of LDL cholesterol, an important function considering that oxidized LDL cholesterol can damage artery walls and set the stage for mineral and fat deposits which lead to blockages. Lactoferrin’s multifunctional role also encompasses antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, antioxidant and immunomodulatory activities.
Advanced Whey is good for those who want to boost their immunity, build muscle or lose weight, and is a good source of nutrition for those who may not consume enough protein in their diet.
