SKU: Whey Pure Categories: ,

Description

Whey Pure, a natural, nutritionally-advanced, bioactive whey protein concentrate, contains immunoglobulins that support the delicate balance of the body’s immune system.

The whey is sourced from New Zealand cows where herds are free from environmental contaminants and are not subjected to hormones and antibiotics.

This protein is a rich source of amino acids, including those needed for the synthesis of glutathione. This formula is resistant to stomach acid and supports intestinal health. The 80% protein content supports lean body mass.*

Directions: Mix 2 scoops with a cold beverage or add to your favorite recipe once daily or as recommended by your healthcare practitioner. To maintain the protein activity level, do not mix in hot drinks or recipes that require baking or boiling. Also, do not mix with pineapple or papaya because their enzymes may deactivate the protein.

Consult your healthcare practitioner prior to use. Individuals taking medication should discuss potential interactions with their healthcare practitioner. Do not use if tamper seal is damaged.

Serving Size: 2 scoops (About 20 grams)

Servings Per Container: About 15

Other Ingredients: Whey protein concentrate and sunflower lecithin.

Does Not Contain: Wheat, gluten, corn, yeast, soy, fish, shellfish, peanuts, tree nuts, egg, ingredients derived from genetically modified organisms (GMOs), artificial colors, artificial sweeteners, or artificial preservatives.

Storage: Keep closed in a cool, dry place out of reach of children.

The Science

Whey protein is one of the two major proteins in cow’s milk. The New Zealand herds used for producing Whey Pure are not given hormones and are not intentionally infected with a pathogen to force them to make antibodies specific to that pathogen.

Boosts Natural Immunity

Whey Pure is a whey protein, rich in immunoglobulins (antibodies) derived from very careful processing techniques under controlled temperature and pH. During a series of ultrafiltration steps, lactose and water are removed from a slurry of whey. Special care is taken to maintain the integrity of the antibodies and to optimize the protein complex.

In comparison to fluid cow’s milk and ordinary whey protein concentrate, Whey Pure contains significantly greater concentrations of proteins and immunoglobulins.*

Whey Pure can be used not only as a high biological value protein source for healthy individuals but also to provide immunoglobulins to those in need. The immunoglobulins it contains are almost identical to those of the mammalian species and resist peptic digestion. The immune-balancing effect of immunoglobulins supports the body’s normal defense mechanisms.* (1, 2)

Benefits the Lymph

Each antibody in Whey Pure (IgG1, IgG2, IgM, and IgA) has a specific role in immune function:

  • IgM responds quickly to an antigen, specifically to bacteria and viruses.
  • Later in the response, IgG1 and IgG2 attack viruses and toxins.
  • IgA is critical in the body’s immune system.
  • The immunoglobulins also contribute to the humoral immunity of the gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT).*

Naturally Builds Muscle

Among Whey Pure’s ingredients is a high concentration of the branched-chain amino acids leucine, isoleucine, and valine, which can be used by skeletal muscle during stress and to support nitrogen utilization. The semi-essential amino acid, arginine, increases the activity of natural killer and lymphokine-activated cells, as well as IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor-1).* (1)

Boosts Antioxidant Activity

Cysteine and glutamate are found in higher concentrations in Whey Pure than in other high-biological–value proteins. These amino acids serve as precursors to glutathione (3), an endogenous antioxidant especially needed during stress, exercise, and poor nutrition.

Lactoferrin, alpha-lactalbumin, beta-lactoglobulin, and bovine serum albumin are other proteins in Whey Pure that contribute to glutathione synthesis and support immune function.* (3, 4)

Blood Sugar and Body Composition Support

Supplementation with whey protein may support glucose metabolism and muscle protein synthesis in humans. (5)

In a group of women, whey protein improved body composition, but soy protein did not.* (6)
