Increased consumption of protein is a well-known weight loss strategy. Whey protein has been shown to have a greater result in supporting weight-loss compared to other proteins and is very easy to incorporate into the diet. Organic whey is complete protein, with a high nutritional value containing all of the essential amino acids. Studies show whey protein is also more easily absorbed (bioavailable) from the stomach compared to other types of protein.
Muscle mass naturally declines with age and as a result this can lead to fat gain and increased risk of numerous chronic diseases. Adding a high quality organic whey protein to your diet in combination with strength training can help build and maintain lean muscle and prevent weight gain.

Type 2 diabetes is characterized by high blood sugar and poor insulin sensitivity.
Organic whey protein has been shown to be more effective than other proteins at moderating blood sugar levels, especially when taken before or with high carbohydrate meal.
Cancer is often linked to free radical formation in the body caused by oxidative stress.
Glutathione is know as the “master antioxidant” is naturally occurring in whey protein and is key in reducing oxidative stress in your body. Supplementation with whey protein has been shown to naturally raise glutathione levels in the body.
Recent studies have shown that in overweight individuals supplementing their diet with whey protein contributed to a significant decrease in their LDL “bad” cholesterol levels. Further research is needed to establish a clear in.
IBS is a condition identified by chronic inflammation in the lining of the digestive tract. IBS can be referred to as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. Preliminary studies have shown in certain cases whey protein provides an easily digestible source or protein for patients without creating digestive issues.
