Whey CoolTM is a delicious high protein, low carbohydrate functional food powder. Protein is a necessary component of the human diet and plays many important roles, including maintaining the structural component of our cells and tissues and helping to support healthy blood sugar levels. Our bodies have no way of storing protein so we must obtain it from our diet on a daily basis.
► Whey protein is comprised of a complete amino acid profile.
Protein is made up of separate “building blocks” called amino acids, which are used to manufacture enzymes, hormones and antibodies. Whey protein is considered a complete protein, as it contains an adequate proportion of all the “essential” amino acids – those that cannot be made by the body, and thus must be obtained through the diet.
Unlike soy protein, which is low in the amino acid methionine, whey protein contains all the amino acids the body needs and in the best balance currently found in any food. The body needs methionine to make the amino acid cysteine. Methionine and cysteine are both sulfur-containing amino acids, an important feature considering the body needs sulfur for making collagen, the primary constituent of cartilage, skin and connective tissue.
► Whey protein supports a healthy immune system.
Whey is nature’s richest source of biologically active protein. It naturally contains an exceptional amount of cysteine, a beneficial amino acid found to be lacking in the modern diet which helps to build a strong immune system. Additionally, it contains the full range, and in exceptional amounts, of the most important immune-supportive protein components, such as lactoferrin and immunoglobulins.
- The milk harvested for Whey CoolTM comes from cows that graze on pesticide- and chemical-free, non-GMO grass pastures in New Zealand, which is known to have one of the least polluted environments in the world.
- The cows that provide the milk for this product are not fed grain and are never subjected to growth hormones or antibiotics.
- This whey is instantized with sunflower lecithin (soy-free, non-GMO), which helps it dissolve more easily in water and prevents foaming during blending. The fact that this whey is instantized with lecithin may help to improve its digestibility due to increased water solubility.
- Whey CoolTM contains no fructose, sucrose, or artificial sweeteners.
