Protein is most often considered in the context of muscle recovery, muscle growth and athletic performance. Indeed, protein supplementation added to a resistance training or endurance program has the ability to stimulate muscle growth, improve strength and reduce recovery time. What is seldom discussed is protein’s foundational role for many other organs and systems in the body such as bone, hair, skin, nails, detoxification pathways, neurotransmitters and more.
Protein should be foundational in all treatment protocols. It is an effective tool for sports performance, blood sugar regulation, weight management, post-surgery or injury recovery, bone health and mental health. Whey protein in particular is a rich source of cysteine, making it a viable option to increase glutathione production and, therefore, liver detoxification. Research has confirmed that whey protein supplementation improves outcomes in individuals with liver cirrhosis and those with non-alcoholic steatohepatitis.
Whey protein isolate is also unique because it is considered the most complete and bioavailable protein source. Whey protein isolate contains several smaller proteins that are beneficial for immune function such as beta lactoglobulin, alpha lactalbumin, glycomacropeptides, immunoglobulins and lactoferrin. Unfortunately, many whey protein supplements use processing steps involving heat or solvents that denature these beneficial immune compounds. Simply put, not all protein supplements are created equal.
Provitalex Pure Whey is a premium quality undenatured whey protein isolate that retains many proteins, peptides and immune factors for optimal health and muscle recovery. Provitalex Pure Whey uses a unique cross flow microfiltration process that carefully isolates undenatured whey while leaving out fat, damaged proteins and lactose, allowing for safe use with lactose intolerant patients.
Each serving provides 20 grams of protein in a highly soluble, unflavoured and unsweetened powder that mixes seamlessly in any liquid. These benefits and nutritional factors make Provitalex Pure Whey the protein of choice for a variety of applications and populations including athletes, the elderly and those with sensitive digestive function or poor immunity.
