Each serving of Whey-tech naturally contains the following whey peptides (expressed as a percent of total protein): 50-60% Beta-lactoglobulin
Assists in transporting fat soluble vitamins into the body.
Boosts vitamin A, D & E availability and utilization 12-16% Alpha-lactalbumin
Rich in the amino acids lysine, leucine, threonine, tryptophan, and cystine.
Increases Glutathione levels
Exhibits potent anti-cancer and anti-oxidant properties 12-19% Glycomacropeptide (GMP).
Shown to stimulate the synthesis and release of cholecystokinin (CCK) in the stomach. CCK is a chemical that signals your brain, acting as an appetite suppressant. By suppressing appetite, the GMP in whey protein offers a potent component for weight management that is not found in other protein sources. Other research has shown that GMP has growth promoting activity for bifidobacteria (healthy gut flora).
Assist in weight management and promotes a healthy digestive tract 3.6% - 5.5% Immunoglobulins (Ig)
Infants receive immunoglobulins in breast milk imparting "passive maternal immunity" to the child, helping to build their immune system. Studies have shown that the immunoglobulins in whey may also support infection control in adults through similar mechanisms. Taking whey protein rich in Ig has been shown to be beneficial in the treatment of E. Coli and certain types of diarrhoea.
Supports the immune system, fights infection and helps beat over training syndrome 2.6 - 3.8% Serum Albumin (BSA)
The BSA whey fraction is high in essential amino acids. Research shows that BSA helps infection-fighting by increasing the numbers of white blood cells ( T-cells). BSA also increases antioxidant activity and is believed to help prevent fats from oxidizing in the body, a key to maintaining healthy cholesterol levels. 0.4 - 0.5% Lactoferrin (Lf)
Lactoferrin (Lf) is an iron binding protein fraction that gives Whey-TECH antimicrobial activity. By depriving microorganisms of iron, which is necessary for their growth, the organisms cannot continue to grow. This iron binding effect is antibacterial, antimicrobial and antiviral as all organisms require iron to flourish. There is also supporting evidence indicating that the ability of Lf to bind iron and take it away from harmful organisms might also help transport iron into our body for valuable health benefits. Recent compelling research has also highlighted the biological activity of Lf in areas such as fighting cancer and toxins, supporting the immune system, wound healing and anti-inflammatory activity.
