Whey Protein BENEFITS

I have been drinking a glass of whey protein powder with ice cold water, a banana and occasionally blueberries or other fruit whipped up in my Vita Mixer every day.

Why do I do this and what are the benefits of doing so? Take a LOOK:

I like many others used to think of the powdered whey protein shakes as a supplement for body builders and of not much value to the average person. I was WRONG.

HIGHLIGHT of Benefits:

  • Contains BCAAs - Branch-chain amino acids (leucine, isoleucine and other fractions tend to mimic the longevity benefits of calorie restriction known as (CR)
  • Branched chain amino acids have been found to significantly increase the life span of mice
  • It is a SUPERFOOD containing all 18 amino acids and naturally occurring bioactive components such as immunoglobulins and lactoferrin and cysteine concentration which is 4 times higher than other proteins and also highly absorbable
  • Inhibits diseases of aging by maximizing glutathione which is an endogenous antioxidant.
  • Reduces muscle wasting in the elderly'
  • Whey helps PREVENT Type II Diabetes
  • Whey protein, via bioactive peptides and amino acids generated during gastrointestinal digestion enhances the release of several hormones which lead to reduced food intake and increase satiety (YOU end up eating LESS)
  • Whey protein can inhibit the development of cancer cells
  • Possible cholesterol reduction
  • Whey can help cope with stress by raising brain serotonin

Do you need more reasons to start drinking whey protein shakes for better health?

Purchase the September 2013 issue of LIFE EXTENSION MAGAZINE and read the entire article concerning the benefits of whey protein including the studies it was based on.
