Whey Protein Isolate (Natural Chocolate Flavor) 454 grams (1 lb. or 16 oz.)
Scientists have known for years that certain biological components of whey protein (including lactoferrin, beta-lactoglobulin, alpha-lactalbumin, glycomacropeptide, and immunoglobulins) have a beneficial impact on the immune system. Life Extension offers a specially designed whey protein isolate, using proprietary production methodology, that has been shown to support healthy immune function, protect against free radical attack, and help maintain lean muscle mass.1-5 Using a low temperature microfiltration technique, it is possible to produce a high-quality, 98% undenatured whey protein isolate that acts as a powerful immune stimulant and retains all the important sub-fractions, such as lactoferrin, a strong antioxidant with immune-stimulating properties.6-7
Whey protein •contains a high concentration of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) leucine, isoleucine and valine, which play an important role in maintaining healthy muscle function •is rich in sulfur-containing amino acids cysteine and methionine, which support a healthy immune response through intracellular conversion to glutathione •provides potent antioxidant activity •supports healthy cardiovascular function by maintaining healthy blood pressure and lipid levels that are already within a normal range •promotes protein synthesis and muscle growth
