Whey Protein a Surprisingly Powerful Antioxidant
Whey protein is actually a powerful antioxidant thanks to an amino acid called glutathione. Glutathione works within each cell fueling its antioxidant mechanisms to neutralize free radicals which is much more effective than antioxidants flowing through the bloodstream searching for free radicals such as the antioxidants from fruits, vegetables, and supplements. Glutathione also works to recycle and reproduce certain vitamins such as Vitamin’s C and E. Glutathione deficiency has been found in patients with ailments including chronic fatigue syndrome, heart disease, cancer, chronic infections, autoimmune disease, diabetes, autism, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, arthritis, asthma, kidney problems, liver disease, and more. Not all Whey proteins are created equally though, look for Whey Protein Isolate which is a bit tougher to find. Whey Protein Isolate is a high-quality Whey protein not often found in pure form in the protein you get from your local store. Check the labels and make sure it’s 100% Whey Protein Isolate or WPI. I get most of my protein including WPI from True Nutrition, they have the best quality protein and supplements I’ve found, and with True Nutrition you know exactly what you’re getting no fillers or mystery proprietary blends. So the moral of the story, supplement with Whey Protein Isolate, at least 30 grams a day.
