We’ve talked about how it affects the athlete and whether or not whey protein was good for you in the previous blogs. Now we wanna dig further on what sort of effects it has on the whole system. Maybe you aren’t trying to lose weight or gain serious muscle. Does whey protein have a positive effect for you then?
Yes, absolutely it does.
Let’s start with the immune system, seems fitting with our current climate.
Whey boosts the immune system by increasing the synthesis of glutathione – a powerful antioxidant which has enormous health benefits and helps protect your body from disease.
Whey helps control the rate at which sugar enters the bloodstream. Even though it increases insulin production, blood sugar levels don’t spike when you consume sugary foods along with Whey protein.
Several studies also suggest that Whey also reduces the total amount of bad cholesterol called LDL and triglycerides in the bloodstream.
Aging and Bone Loss
It’s not just drinking milk that gives you a lot of calcium anymore. Since Whey is a byproduct of milk – it too can provide you with a high amount of calcium per serving.
Using it will help prevent bone loss while keeping them healthy and strong, and give you other calcium-related benefits.
How about the mind?
Whey Protein shakes contain the amino acid Tryptophan, which plays a significant part in the brain’s production of serotonin.
Low serotonin levels can cause depression, anxiety, and uneasiness, so a protein-rich diet that contains this amino acid is beneficial to improving your mood and happiness.
Yep! How about some hormone balance.
This is especially beneficial for women, as whey protein does not cause fluctuation in hormone levels as it often happens with other proteins.
Also, Alpha-lactalbumin is one of the main bioactive components of Whey, and it helps regulate the levels of the hormone cortisol and the neurotransmitter serotonin in the body that helps elevate mood.
