MLO 100% Whey Protein 5 lb
Whey protein is considered a complete protein and contains all 9 essential amino acids and is low in lactose content. Getting enough protein is essential for helping the body add lean muscle. Whey protein is superior to other protein types whereby it is rapidly broken down by the body, making it a great protein source during periods of dieting or hardcore training regimen. Due to its high absorption rate, it's best taken after intense workouts.
High-protein diets have been found to reduce body weight and increase insulin sensitivity. Scientists at Australia’s University of Adelaide found that whey-fed rats demonstrated increased insulin sensitivity and a 40% reduction in plasma insulin concentration compared to the beef-fed rats. Increased insulin sensitivity and reduced plasma insulin concentration are both associated with improved blood sugar control and reduced fat storage.
Whey may also support weight loss by modulating levels of the crucial neurotransmitter serotonin. Serotonin is involved in a wide range of psychological and biological functions, and influences mood, anxiety, and appetite. Healthy levels of serotonin are correlated with relaxation, calm, and an improved ability to cope with stress, whereas lower levels are associated with depression, anxiety, and poor appetite control.
Numerous studies show that whey can help you increase strength, gain muscle and lose significant amounts of body fat. Whey protein has also been shown to have benefits for depression, blood pressure, blood sugar and even helping to reverse weight loss and increasing glutathione (GSH) in people with HIV and cancer. Whey also delivers a large amount of the amino acid L-cysteine, which can alleviate deficiencies that occur during aging and diabetes, as well as other conditions.
Beverages that were supplemented with whey protein significantly reduced blood pressure in patients with hypertension, their risk of developing heart disease or stroke was also lower. In long terms, whey supplementation helps decreasing total cholesterol levels and LDL cholesterol.
If you are an athlete or highly active person attempting to lose body fat while preserving lean muscle mass, a daily intake of 1.5-2.2g/kg bodyweight is a good goal.
