  • Whey protein is derived from milk or the watery by-product of cheese production and is rapidly digested and absorbed. In addition to vitamin-binding proteins and several enzymes, whey protein contains a number of bioactive components including beta-lactoglobulin, alpha-lactalbumin, serum albumin, immunoglobulin, and lactoferrin. These components demonstrate a range of immune enhancing and antioxidant properties that result in effects on hypertension, cancer, hyperlipidemia, and virus infections… CONTINUE READING
