Whey Protein Concentrate: The Health Benefits of this Top Source of Amino Acids & What Type to Choose (and Avoid!)

Are you looking for an on-the-go meal supplement that can keep up with your healthy lifestyle? Whey protein concentrate, a delicious powder that mixes well with all kinds of liquids, could be just what you need!

Happy cows make high quality whey protein.RenewPro Whey Protein is made from the whey of pasture-fed cows that are hormone free.

Bodybuilders and cancer patients alike have been using whey protein for years.
Whey protein has been shown to:

  • Build muscle mass
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Speed recovery time
  • Boost immunity
  • Act as a prebiotic to feed the healthy microflora in your intestines

With all these reasons to use whey protein, it's no wonder that so many brands are on the market. But be careful what you choose because the quality and the kind of whey proteins varies and you want to be sure that you are getting the best nutritional value for your money.

Why Whey Protein?

Whey protein supplements contain cysteine, lactoferrin, and immunoglobulins. These substances each play critical roles in your body.

  • Cysteine is an amino acid found in colostrums and in mother's milk that can help regulate metabolism and improve immunity.
  • Lactoferrin is also found in colostrum and breast milk and is a prebiotic that supports the growth of good bacteria in your gut helping establish an inner ecosystem at birth. It also has been shown to inhibit viral replication and the growth of bad bacteria by bonding to excess iron.
  • Immunoglobulins are powerful immune boosters found in colostrum and breast milk. They are proteins that act as antibodies to help get rid of bad bacteria and pathogens in your intestines.

Collectively, they help manufacture glutathione, perhaps the most important antioxidant of all. Glutathione is essential for helping protect your body from free radicals and helps metabolize toxins and carcinogens.

Whey protein provides amino acids (the building blocks for proteins) and lipids (fats) that your body can readily absorb. So if you generally have trouble digesting milk, you can probably digest whey protein without any problems.

(Most people who have stomach discomfort and gas after consuming dairy usually have this problem because they cannot digest the protein casein or milk fats. Whey protein does not contain casein or fat and causes few digestive problems. For more on casein read Are You Sensitive to Casein in Dairy and Don't Even Know It?

RenewPro Whey Protein

Here at Body Ecology we recommend only RenewPro whey protein concentrate. The whey in RenewPro comes from healthy hormone and antibiotic-free cows that graze in natural grass pastures that are disease-free, pesticide-free and chemical free.

For two very important reasons, RenewPro's whey protein has the highest biological value of any protein: it is a concentrate and it is non-denatured.

Most whey proteins on the market are isolates, ion exchange and hydrolyzed formulas. These whey proteins are made using high heat, chemical and pH regulation that is part of the cheese manufacturing process. It is this process that damages or denatures the whey protein.

RenewPro's whey protein is a concentrate, which is is non-denatured (undamaged and not part of the cheese manufacturing process). This makes RenewPro a complete protein that provides a balance of all the essential amino acids. Since RenewPro's protein structure has not been altered, your body can readily use all of its beneficial components for improved health and increased vitality.

RenewPro is the highest quality whey protein on the market and mixes smoothly with liquids for a satisfying and delicious snack or meal.Learn More and Order RenewPro Now!
