The unique levels of bioactive proteins, peptides and amino acids within Ultimate High-Alpha Whey Protein play a number of significant health enhancing roles in the body, some of which include (but are not limited to):
- building, repairing and replacing body cells for faster recuperation
- building and repairing muscle, skin and bones – bone building, reducing appearance of wrinkles, promoting beautiful hair and nails
- improving metabolism (i.e. fat loss)
- enhancing immunity for greater defense against disease
- effectively reducing stress
- effectively lowering cortisol (helping reduce tummy fat)
- enhancing feel-good brain chemicals (serotonin)
- aiding in efficient sleep
The Ultimate High-Alpha Whey Protein is a one-of-a-kind high performance functional protein that contains the Natural Health industry’s highest levels of the bioactive peptide Alpha-lactalbumin – nature’s most perfect form of protein. The exceptionally high levels of bioactive proteins, peptides and amino acids are obtained through an exclusive low-heat, cross flow micro-filtration method that filters out all impurities and guarantees a completely bioavailable, high performance functional protein coming from 100% whey isolate (no inexpensive, less bioavailable concentrate). The result is a protein that can actually impact the body’s biological systems, improve immunity, help lower stress hormones (cortisol), balance moods, reduce cravings, aid in deep restorative sleep and boost energy levels during the day.1,2
Why Whey Protein?
Protein is second only to water as the most plentiful substance in the body. In fact, well over 50% of your body’s dry weight is protein. Unfortunately, many people – especially strict vegetarians and the elderly – do not consume enough high quality protein through their modern diet. Protein is essential for the body to maintain, repair and build body tissues including muscles, organs, skin and hair. The side effects of inadequate protein intake can include a loss of lean metabolically active muscle tissue, unwanted weight gain, bone loss, compromised skin integrity, lethargy and compromised immunity (becoming sick frequently) – all of which are hallmarks of premature aging. By supplementing the diet with Ultimate High-Alpha Whey Protein, you can insure that your body’s protein needs are being met.
Whey protein is an excellent choice for protein supplementation as it contains an excellent balance of all of the amino acids your body needs to stay healthy and strong. Furthermore, it contains higher amounts of these essential amino acids than do vegetable protein sources, and also contains more branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) – leucine, isoleucine, and valine, which are especially important for tissue growth and repair.3
Additionally, whey protein has been clinically studied and has been shown to have a variety of beneficial effects on health extending beyond simply improving muscle repair and growth. Whey protein can also help to support weight management by reducing cravings and supporting the production of lean muscle mass. Even more impressively, whey protein has been shown to reduce the risk of metabolic diseases like diabetes by helping to manage blood glucose levels and insulin resistance.4 Finally, whey protein helps to improve immune function and gastrointestinal health.1
Why is High-Alpha Whey Protein Superior?
Whey protein isolates are the purest form of whey protein, containing upwards of 95 percent protein with low (to undetectable) levels of lactose and fat. If the whey is damaged by excessive heat, chemicals or acids, it will be rendered “denatured,” and will therefore not be a viable protein source to the body as it will have few, if any, health benefits. High-Alpha Whey Protein contains 100% whey protein isolate, which is processed at a low temperature to prevent denaturation.
Ultimate High-Alpha Whey Protein is also guaranteed to contain a minimum of 33% Alpha-lactalbumin—nature’s most perfect protein! Alpha-lactalbumin has been shown to be responsible for many of the beneficial effects of whey protein including faster growth and repair of muscle tissue, enhanced immune function, stress reduction, mood enhancement and improved sleep.1,2
