Whey protein is an excellent source of protein. Whey protein is either processed
as a concentrate or as an isolate and AOR's Advanced Whey contains both
fractions to ensure a wide spectrum of nutrients. Studies have shown that whey
possesses anti-microbial, anti-carcinogenic, anti-inflammatory, cholesterol
lowering, immune supporting and antioxidant properties.
Advanced Whey is fortified with extra lactoferrin and alpha lactalbumin which
are both naturally present in whey. This reinforces the beneficial health
properties of Advanced Whey. Lactoferrin is an iron-binding protein
concentrated in bodily fluids. Lactoferrin supports immune function through
several mechanisms: direct antimicrobial action, the denial of access to iron
which is necessary for bacterial growth, the prevention of viruses entering cells,
and the enhancement of the activity of immune cells.
Lactoferrin levels naturally increase after intense bouts of physical activity.
Advanced Whey was designed to support this natural response and enhances
an immune system which has been weakened by rigorous exercise.
Alpha -Lactalbumin is a high quality protein that is easily utilized by the body
and helps to support normal cellular growth. Advanced Whey boasts more
than 36% alpha-lactalbumin by weight, unlike others which contain 20% alpha-
lactalbumin or less.
Advanced Whey also contains 6-8% Sialic acid, a protein found in saliva and
mucus which prevents pathogens from entering the body.
The widespread health applications of whey protein are heavily dependent on its
alpha-lactalbumin, lactoferrin, and sialic acid content. The addition of these
fractions is costly, which may largely explain why their benefits are not emphasized
in most whey protein supplements. Advanced Whey from AOR provides unique
health benefits because it is reinforced with specific fractions and contains amounts
over and above those which are naturally found in whey protein.
