The Many Amazing Whey Protein Benefits
There are so many amazing whey protein benefits! Whether you are a competitive bodybuilder or a mother of three, looking to get back in shape or just want to live a long healthy happy life, whey protein is certainly what you need to support your body in reaching its maximum potential.
And if you want to burn fat, curb cravings, build lean muscle, increase energy, and boost your immune system, then look no further.
Whey protein has been proven in many medical studies to improve weight loss, increase energy and even naturally boost your body’s most powerful antioxidant: glutathione.
Whey provides you with a more absorbable source of protein than any other type of food or supplement and is easy to digest for most men, women and children, which is why whey is the most popular protein supplement today, and for good reason.
According to a recent study published in the British Journal of Nutrition, whey protein is the ideal supplement to build muscle and increase metabolism.
Understanding Whey Protein
Whey proteins are the globular proteins derived as a by-product of cheese production. The term “whey” refers to a complex substance made up of a combination of protein, lactose, minerals, immunoglobulins, and trace amounts of fat. It is primarily the protein that makes it a superfood for fat loss.
This whey protein is dried and sold in powder form and is easily reconstituted by adding liquid.
7 Amazing Whey Protein Benefits
Whey Protein truly has many health benefits. Here are 7 of the best reasons to add whey protein to your diet or fitness regimen
1. Increases Strength and Builds Muscle
A recent 10-week study showed that whey protein boosts both muscle mass and strength. The researchers split 19 men into two groups and gave each of them whey protein, casein and amino acids, then gave the other group a placebo. The men who took the whey protein combination gained body mass, muscle mass and body strength. They also found that it increased protein synthesis and improved muscle performance!
Studies carried out by Laurentian University Ontario concluded that “protein supplementation during resistance training, independent of source, increased lean tissue mass and strength over placebo and resistance training”. Whey protein is the most efficient way to add protein to the diet without extra calories from carbohydrates or fat.
Whey protein typically contains 90% protein which is higher compared to lean red meat, chicken, fish, eggs or cheese. It provides the body with what it needs to build muscle, strength and to recover quickly after a workout.
2. Reduces Cravings
Ghrelin and Leptin are the two hormones that help to regulate appetite. Leptin is a hormone, made by fat cells, that decreases your appetite. Ghrelin is a hormone that increases appetite, and also plays a role in body weight. Whey protein seems to affect these two hormones and causes them to balance out and decrease hunger cravings.
In a double-blind study in Australia, it was discovered that the subjects had less ghrelin in their system after taking whey protein than when drinking the glucose, fructose and combination drinks that were used. Also, whey protein really works to diminish cravings without spiking blood sugar.
3. Burns Fat – Lose Weight!
Whey protein burns fat! In a Paris study, French scientists studied animals that exercised for two hours daily for more than five weeks. One group of the animals exercised in the fasting state while the others had sugar, whole milk, or whey protein.
The group that fasted lost muscle during their workout. The group that consumed sugar, burned sugar during their workouts, but burned very little fat. The group that consumed whole milk did see improvements in muscle mass but also gained some body fat.
But the group that supplemented with whey protein saw both a decrease in body fat and an increase in muscle!
The researchers concluded that whey’s ability to rapidly deliver amino acids during exercise explain its superiority to other foods consumed post workout.
4. Improves Blood Sugar & Improves Energy
Whey stabilizes blood sugar when taken with a high glycemic index meal. It stimulates the production of insulin, and prevents dramatic spikes in blood sugar. Whey protein also increases glycogen, which is the source of energy during exercising or heavy activity.
Plus, whey protein enhances the effect of leptin, the hormone affecting energy balance. The protein of whey is easily digested and accessed by the body to convert into energy.
5. Boosts Glutathione
Whey protein helps increase the production of glutathione which is the “master antioxidant.” It is found in every cell in your body and helps eliminate free radicals, which are the reactive oxidants that cause cell damage.
These particles usually occur naturally during the metabolism of energy in the mitochondrial process. However, when the body is taxed from toxic exposure, heavy metals, or disease, then the level of free radicals increases.
Taking whey protein helps to fight free radicals.
6. Extends Lifespan
Whey protein may actually increase life span. In a recent study where they supplemented middle aged mice with whey protein it increased the average lifespan by 12%.
That is like adding 10 years to your life! Whey reduces muscle wasting associated with aging, and increases nutrient absorption without increasing hunger. As we age we lose bone mass, cell function and our quality of digestion decreases. Whey protein has been shown to reduce the loss in all of these areas, making it one of the most powerful superfoods on earth!
7. Boosts Immunity
Whey protein boosts your immune system! Glutathione also boosts the effectiveness of all the other antioxidants like Vitamin C, Coenzyme Q10, ALA and Vitamin E.
It helps heal the effect of environmental and dietary toxins. Due to the high levels of glutathione, whey protein is an ideal choice to fight illness on a cellular level!
THE PROBLEM WITH OTHER PROTEIN SUPPLEMENTS…
Unfortunately, not all whey protein is created equal. Most of the protein powders on the market today have undergone acid treatments, have been injected with steroids and hormones, contain artificial sweeteners, have added dangerous soy lecithin, and are denatured.
Consuming denatured protein powder can be very hard on your digestive tract. And soy lecithin has an abundance of negative side effects.
Lecithin is used in protein supplements so that it mixes well and doesn’t clump up. There is “good” lecithin and there is “bad” lecithin. One has a ton of health benefits and the other has multiple side effects.
Soy Lecithin vs Sunflower Lecithin
Avoid products containing any form of soy – period!
At first it might seem like the better deal, as sunflower lecithin does cost quite a bit more than soy lecithin. However, it’s important to understand why the sunflower variety costs more.
First, sunflowers cost quite a bit more to produce and the yield from each plant is very little. The flowers take up more space and require more attention while they’re growing. Soy, on the other hand, costs very little to produce, requires no babysitting while it grows, and tons of soybeans can be produced in a relatively small area. And the health benefits are enormous and far reaching. Benefits of sunflower lecithin include, brain health, heart health, lower cholesterol, liver repair, estrogen-free, a powerful antioxidant, faster healing, nervous system health, lower blood pressure, better sleep quality, relief from arthritis, and much much more.
Second, soy lecithin is extracted from soybeans quite cheaply, unfortunately by using the dangerous cancer-causing chemicals acetone and hexane. Soy lecithin has many side effects such as, low blood pressure, marked by fainting or dizziness, diarrhea, nausea, headache, abdominal pain, bad breath, excessive weight gain, confusion, blurred vision, coughing, sneezing, runny nose, excessive perspiration, allergic reaction, and anaphylactic shock and in very severe cases, and even death.
Sunflower lecithin is made solely as a health supplement and is always raw & cold-pressed, without the use of dangerous chemicals.
We only use sunflower lecithin in our Organic Grass-Fed Whey Protein Isolate
As you can see, whey protein has so many amazing qualities! It can build bones, muscle, balance blood sugar and extend your life! However, the type of whey protein you choose is critical to getting the benefits discussed above.
The best source of whey is a whey isolate that comes from grass-fed cows, free of the dangerous hormones rBGH & rBST, and free of the harmful chemical processed soy lecithin.
Also, we don’t recommend buying cheaper whey proteins with added artificial sweeteners because they are hard on the digestive system and can be neurotoxic.
Here are 10 important questions you'll want to consider when it comes to buying whey protein
- Is it cold processed?
- Is it Non-GMO?
- Is it made from grass-fed pasture raised cows?
- Is it bio-available?
- Does it have any harmful artificial sweeteners?
- Is it easy-to-digest?
- Is it low-carb & low fat?
- Is it made with the dangerous ingredient soy lecithin?
- Does it contain traceable hormones or antibiotics?
- Does it contain pesticides or herbicides?
