Wonderful Whey

Wonderful Whey…Why Take Whey Protein... by Kate Burns  BEd. Phys Ed.

With regular use of a quality whey protein product, combined with good water, nutrition & an alkaline diet, you will be on your way to reaching better health.
  • Proteins are an essential component of all living tissues. The World Health Organisation suggests that we consume 0.8g of protein per kilogram of body weight daily as a minimum requirement for health.  However, those active in sports & serious exercise programs may need from 1.2g to 2.0 g per kilogram every day. It can be difficult to obtain these levels from your diet alone. This is where Whey Protein can help.
  • One of the best way protein brands in Australia that is high quality & isn't expensive is Pro-Matrix whey protein.
  • Pro-Matrix whey proteins help you to :-
1.    Increase muscle tone & burn fat
2.    Accelerate your metabolism
3.    Supports faster tissue repair.
4.    Generate lean muscle mass
5.    Easily digested, low in cholesterol

 I always stick to the all natural, chemical free whey products with additional no fillers, artificial flavours, colours and additives.

  • Pro-matrix is pesticide & gluten free, non GMO & low GI.
  •  The three greatest supplements are whey protein powders, glutamine which is often in protein powders, and creatine. Protein (WPI & WPC) and  creatine,  both help you build muscles faster & assist performance and glutamine helps you recover from workouts more quickly.
  • Protein helps people & athletes/trainers maintain a healthy immune system by increasing the levels of glutathione in the body. Glutathione is an anti-oxidant required for a healthy immune system & exercise/ resistance training may over time reduce glutathione levels. Whey protein helps keep people/athletes healthy & strong to perform their optimal best. However, if you just want to get fit & lose some of that extra weight, whey protein can help you there as well.
  • Whey protein is good to take in the morning and also after workouts since those are the times your body is yearning for food & nutrients and whey has fast absorption of the amino acids that are the building blocks of proteins. This elevated level drops after a few hours. Breakdown of whey proteins in the body takes 2-3hours.  
  • Promatrix has a delicious natural flavoured whey- Naked Whey and a rich organic chocolate flavour –Wicked Whey, both available in WPI & WPC.
  • 1 serve or 30gm of Pro-matrix Whey WPI  provides about 29.5 gm of protein.
  • 1 serve or 30gm of Pro-matrix Whey WPC provides about 25.4 gm of protein.
  • Pro-Matrix Whey Protein Isolate (WPI)- (98.2% protein & virtually no fat)    is absorbed rapidly & is best consumed straight after a exercise or a workout. For optimal results, combine 2 serves of WPI with 1 serve of CC. This blend improves muscles protein absorption rates & prolongs anabolic states.
  • Pro-Matrix WPC Concentrate (WPC) – is (84.5% protein with low levels of fat & lactose) is digested quickly, promotes protein synthesis &.may usually be used before activity. It will assist to stimulate fat burning, suppress your appetite & give a feeling of fullness.
  • Pro-Matrix Calcium Caseinate (CC) – (96.5% protein) CC- has different bioactive peptides to whey proteins is believed to be essential in the pursuit of muscle gain & fat loss. It digests slower & prolongs the protein breakdown, thus sustaining an elevated level of amino acids in the blood for hours. Calcium Casein breaks over a span of 6-7 hours, so seems to be best taken at night, as your body is resting.
  • Creatine  Most of the body’s creatine is found in skeletal muscle bound to phosphate as phosphocreatine. It plays an important role in energy metabolism by donating its phosphate to the ADP (adenine diphosphate) compound, enabling regeneration into ATP ( adenine triphosphate), which in turn fuels muscle contractions during repeated short bursts of exercise.  Scientific studies have shown creatine to enhance performance during anaerobic training eg. allowing more repetitions of an exercise & speedy recovery between training sets, making it popular with football players & gym/weight trainers.
  • Recipes for Sensational Shakes
  • The natural flavour of Pro-matrix has many uses. When mixed with water they whey resembles low fat milk.
  • For a richer taste either shake with milk or blend with milk powder.
  • Banana/Choc Shake…a favourite and tastes amazing…blend 2 serves Wicked Whey organic chocolate-  60gm WPI or 2 serve 60gm of WPC, 3 cups milk, 1 banana & blend…will keep you going past lunch…enjoy.

Recent nutritional research has uncovered a nutrient-lactoferrin, in whey protein that according to Health Sciences Institute is ‘a major medical breakthrough’ and ‘ a powerful tool in the fight against serious diseases’.

Whey protein contains a glycoprotein called  lactoferrin  that;
  • Assists in the prevention of cancer cells
  • Slows down the growth of cancerous tumours
  • Is a powerful broad spectrum microbe destroyer – it helps eliminate fungi, bacteria, viruses, candida & protozoa.

Lactoferrin is highly concentrated in breast milk & colostrum (first milk after birth). The lactoferrin in a mother’s breast milk provides powerful immune protection to the newborn….

Lactoferrins ability to impact cancer cells is linked to its ability to bind with iron – this bond is 100x stronger than transferring, the main iron transporting protein. Researchers have discovered that it appears that an excess of iron can increase the risk of developing certain types of cancer. Cancer cells need both sugar & iron to reproduce & grow. By starving cancer cells of iron, lactoferrin helps to deprive the cancer cells of energy &  nutrients.

Lactoferrin is also a bone strengthener, that can assist in the prevention of osteoporosis. Lactoferrin can be taken as a supplement if you are not lactose intolerant, however it is abundantly available in whey powder  (11% protein) and whey powder concentrate (80% protein), both of which can be safely ingested by people who are lactose intolerant.

Whey is also high in lysine. A deficiency in the amino acid lysine may cause heart disease,  as lysine enables the body to create the micronutrient that makes up the mesothelial tissue of the blood vessels
