Protein Powder

21 05 2010

The very first protein source you were designed to eat as a newborn is your mother’s breast milk. Did you know that the single most important nutritional protein in breast milk is whey protein? In fact, mothers’ milk is 70% whey.

Whey protein contains all the essential amino acids. Plus it boasts the highest protein quality rating among all proteins. It is a complete protein, giving newborns a healthy start in life. From that start, you’re designed to build a strong immune system and attain a normal growth pattern.

A 1987 ‘Immunology’ journal reports that whey protein supports optimal immune system response by replenishing glutathione (GSH) levels in the blood through its critical precursor, cysteine. Intercellular levels of glutathione precursors increase when you eat native whey protein. Then glutathione is produced and stored in your cells for later use.

Glutathione (GSH) happens to be your body’s best-kept secret in the war against free radicals and the signs of aging.

Glutathione (GSH) acts as your body’s “master” antioxidant and detoxifier. It is a tri-peptide made up of the amino acids cysteine, glutamic acid, and glycine. Our bodies produce GSH when we have adequate amounts of these critical components. Drinking Pro-Optimal Whey with Proserum native whey protein in it ensures that you receive the highest amounts of these components.

So how does glutathione promote your good health?

-Supports your immune system. Healthier people have higher GSH levels than immune-depressed people. Lymphocytes, cells vital for your immune response, depend on GSH for proper function and replication.

-Decreases signs of aging. GSH levels drop as you age. Research shows that a tendency towards degenerative diseases and aging are related to the cells’ ability to robustly recover from oxidative insult. This ability can be determined by measuring intracellular stores of glutathione.

-Helps detoxify your liver. Your liver is your body’s major detoxifier. High concentrations of GSH locate there, to carry on biochemical detoxification. GSH detoxifies pollutants, carcinogens and poisons, like those found in fuel exhaust and cigarette smoke.

-Supports good athletic performance. Strong muscular activity generates oxy-radicals, leading to muscle fatigue and reduced athletic performance. GSH neutralizes those radicals and promotes muscular development.

As you are likely aware, I am a huge advocate of consuming raw milk products — and avoiding all pasteurized milk dairy products. Raw milk is one of the most profoundly healthy foods you can consume.

Once milk is heated (to approximately 163°), nutritional breakdown and chemical modification begin. Both of these denature the milk, and by extension, the whey proteins inside.

Pasteurizing destroys enzymes, weakens vitamins, denatures or damages fragile milk proteins, destroys vitamin B12 and B6, kills beneficial bacteria and promotes pathogens. I firmly believe that pasteurized milk is the number one cause of food allergies in this country, and is associated with a broad range of other symptoms.

What’s more, once the protein is denatured, the vital protein-bound fats are cut loose.

Even today’s most expensive whey products — isolates, ion exchange, concentrates and hydrolyzed form — are denatured by-products of cheese manufacturing that fall short of preserving the biological activity of the whey proteins. These damaged proteins leave just a slim range of proteins to contribute to your health.

*Pro-Optimal Whey: never uses cross-flow filtration, microfiltration, hydrolyzation, ion exchange, or any process that could denature the original proteins as found in pure, raw milk.

*Pro-Optimal Whey: uses Proserum Whey Protein. Proserum is a customized non-denatured, whey protein powder. It undergoes a unique pasteurization process to keep the full range of all the fragile immune balancing and restoring components of fresh raw milk.

My commitment to providing you with the finest quality whey protein — without stripping it down via heat and processing — means you get powerful and important benefits from natural whey. How about these ways to help your wellbeing?

Lactoferrin. Enhances iron absorption when needed*. Also supports immune health and optimal inflammation levels*.

Immunoglobins. Numerous immune system benefits.

Bovine Serum Albumin. Along with lactoferrin and immunoglobins, contains generous amounts of cysteine and glutamine (necessary for glutathione production).
Covalent-Bonded Cysteine. Critical precursor of the intracellular production of glutathione (GSH), your master antioxidant and detoxifier.

Active Peptides. Specialized paired amino acids that display a helpful information transfer factor effect on the immune system*. They also boost intracellular glutathione.

Growth Factors. These growth-promoting protein fractions help regenerate aged or injured cells, build and retain muscle, process energy efficiently, enhance immunity, and support healthy blood sugar and brain chemicals.

Why Does it Matter What the Cows Eat?

The milk used in Pro-Optimal Whey Protein Meal comes only from cows that graze on pesticide-free, chemical-free, natural grass pastures.

These cows are never subjected to chemicals, hormones, antibiotics, genetically modified organisms, hyper-immunizations, injected pathogens, or any bovine growth hormones — giving you peace of mind in addition to wellness.

Plus, these cows are not from factory farms that feed their cows grains. Grain-feeding can transform healthy milk proteins into allergens and carcinogens — which is caused by modern feeding methods that substitute high-protein, soy-based feeds for fresh green grass.

Grass fed cows’ milk has excellent levels of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), which is transferred to you in the whey powder.

CLA may be one of the most potent antioxidant substances in your diet. Additionally, it supports healthy weight, normal immune function, and helps promote normal insulin and cholesterol levels.

Agricultural Research dairy scientist Larry Satter, based at the Dairy Forage Research Center in Madison, Wisconsin, conducted a study comparing the amount of CLA in milk from cows grazing on pasture to the amount from cows fed hay or silage.

Astoundingly, he concluded that pasture-grazed cows had 500% more CLA in their milk than cows fed silage.

So Pro-Optimal Whey, via grass-fed milking cows, provides you with a terrific source of CLA. Which is a great thing…because CLA can’t be produced by your body. Instead you must get it through foods like whole milk, butter, beef and lamb.

I personally do NOT take any protein supplements (powders), but if you want to use them – I’d highly consider the ones mentioned above 🙂
