Want to cheat father time? A high-quality protein powder could be the solution, but not all are made the same.
Protein plays a unique role in healthy skin, aging, organ function, muscle growth and more. The thing is, most people don’t give their bodies sufficient amounts of quality protein. One of the world’s leading sources of protein is whey protein. But, not all whey proteins are created equally. Most commercial whey protein is processed using high heat and acids, leading to significant denaturing. All Nutrology whey proteins are cold filtered and sourced from grass-fed cows. Grass-fed whey is your best choice when it comes to anti-aging and nutritional value.
Quality grass-fed whey protein supplies 3 key amino acids l-glutamine, l-cysteine and l-glycine, which your body uses to make glutathione. Glutathione is your bodies most powerful antioxidant and the secret ingredient to healthy aging. The average human body has over 100 trillion cells, glutathione is the only intracellular antioxidant that goes into each and every cell to protect against the harmful effects of cell damaging radiation, carcinogenic chemicals and environmental toxins. You don’t need water from the fountain of youth to keep your body looking young and healthy, all you need is glutathione!
Glutathione is produced through three amino acids: l-glutamine, l-Cysteine and l-glycine.
L-cysteine is the most important of these three key amino acids, availability of l-cysteine is directly correlated to the amount of glutathione your body can produce. You see, with commercial whey proteins, the l-Cysteine is weakly bonded from exposure to heat and acids during processing, therefore unable to survive your bodies digestion process and remain effective. But Nutrology’s grass-fed whey protein is cold filtered, so the l-cysteine remains strongly bonded and will survive digestion, in return boosting glutathione levels. Healthy levels of glutathione can significantly reduce your chances of developing age-related diseases.
So, when you’re looking to optimize your bodies protein intake and promote a healthy aging process, choose a whey protein that will give you the most available l-cysteine. Because more l-cysteine means more glutathione. Cold filtered, grass-fed whey proteins are your best friend when it comes to healthy aging and a happy life.
