Higher Biological Value + Complete Amino Acid Profile: Grass-fed whey protein provides an optimal biological value and is a complete protein containing all nine essential amino acids and a higher concentration (approximately 25%) of the branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) than any other non-whey protein source. BCAAs are three special amino acids, leucine, isoleucine, and valine.
Weight Loss: Unlike grain-fed whey sources, grass fed milk is a rich source of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), a powerful nutrient clinically shown to increase fat metabolism within your body. Milk from cows grazing on grass will usually contain 3 to 5 times the amount of CLA compared to milk from cows fed grain.
Recent research has shown conjugated linoleic acid increases basal metabolic rates, allowing your body to convert the food you eat more efficiently into energy, rather than store it as fat.
Immunity Boost: Found in significant quantities only in raw milk and high-quality grass fed whey protein supplements, immunoglobulins are special proteins that can act as transporters of antibodies within your body to combat viruses, bacteria and other foreign invaders.
Immunoglobulins have been used to treat chronic fatigue syndrome, anemia, hepatitis A, arthritis and many other diseases and can help build up your immunity against damaging microorganisms and toxins.
Free-Radical Defense: Glutathione is a tripeptide composed of three amino acids – cysteine, glutamine and glycine. All three of these amino acids are found in a higher ratio in non-denatured whey protein (such as a grass-fed option) than in any other form of protein available.
Glutathione is your body’s master antioxidant and a vital component of good health. It provides your primary intracellular defense against oxidative stress from harmful free radicals. Quite literally, glutathione protects your cells from DNA damage and potentially cancerous changes every day.
Defy Age: As we age there is a significant drop in glutathione levels within the body. Low glutathione is associated with many diseases of aging such as atherosclerosis, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and cataracts. Grass fed whey protein, with its glutathione precursors, can be particularly beneficial for elderly people wishing to increase their protection against such diseases.
