Whey protein isolate (WPI) is made up of a combination of protein and amino acid chains extracted from whey or “lactoserum”. A new, high-tech process, Cross Flow Microfiltration, has enabled an isolate to be extracted from whey that contains over 90% protein, 99% of which is totally undenatured. All the important sub-fractions are retained in their natural ratios, while lipids and lactose are almost entirely eliminated. Natural and non-chemical, this slow, gentle filtration technique protects the proteins’ integrity and biological activity.
Studies conducted on whey protein have shown it to have a number of properties:
It increases protein synthesis in muscles and helps to build muscle mass and increase power and strength.
- It activates anabolic metabolism at a cellular level.
- It stimulates the immune system and has antiviral and antibacterial effects (Helicobacter pylori and salmonella).
- It inhibits the spread of cancer (particularly breast and colon cancer, by blocking hydrazines and by the presence of other anti-cancer agents) and increases the efficacy of chemotherapy.
- It protects against free radical damage.
- It appears to reduce stress and depression by lowering levels of cortisol, the stress hormone, and by increasing those of cerebral serotonin. Its calcium and magnesium content boosts the action of amino acids.
- -It improves liver function and in particular helps raise glutathione levels when normal reserves are reduced or exhausted and thus limits the aftereffects of hepatitis.
- -It activates osteoblasts and thus slows the development of osteoporosis.
- -It protects patients with HIV or cancer from cachexia (extreme weight loss and wasteing).
- -It helps prevent macular degeneration (AMD) and cataracts.
- -It promotes healing of skin and muscle injuries, contributes to collagen production and strengthens the joints, tendons and cardiac muscle.
WPI is therefore not just for athletes or weightlifters! Since it provides all the essential amino acids, it is particularly beneficial for those who eat little or no meat, elderly people who find it hard to chew, adults on hyperprotein diets or indeed anyone looking to give their health and fitness regimes an added boost several times a year by supplementing their normal diet.
Each dosette contains 19.176g of whey protein isolate and thus provides the protein equivalent of three yogurts or 600ml of milk!
In summary, our WPI is an essential concentrate of vital elements and is without doubt one of the most reliable and polyvalent anti-ageing supplements available.
Adults. Alongside your normal diet, take 20-80g a day (one to four measures), diluted in a drink of your choice (water or plant-based drinks).
