Sources of Whey Protein and its Health Benefits for the Human Body

May 25th 2014 at 11:35 PM

Whey protein offers multiple benefits for the human body. Derived from milk, where it is a naturally occurring protein, whey consists of high amounts of branched-chain valine and amino acids such as leucine and isoleucine. These amino acids are used by the body to help repair muscles. Whey protein is also an excellent source of cysteine and calcium, which help enhance the body's fat-burning abilities, while strengthening the bones and elevating the level of anti oxidants found in the system. With all these essential benefits, it is only practical that everyone knows what the best sources of Whey protein are, so we can maximize its benefits for the body. A direct derivative of milk, its purest forms can be found in different kinds of milk:

  • Cow and goat's milk – milk contains fast digesting whey proteins as well as slow digesting casein, along with proteins and carbohydrates—where the milk's lactose content is highest. Whey and casein are the main protein content of milk and they are used by the body to improve muscle strength and gain mass. Cow milk protein is 20% whey and 80% casein, which makes it a good source of whey protein, but goat's milk offers a higher concentration of even more easily digested whey proteins like lactoferrin and immunoglobulins. These proteins also don't cause gastrointestinal discomfort and allergic reactions often associated with other types of milk.
  • Yogurt – made from milk, yogurt also contains whey proteins that constitute its source. Apart from whey protein, yogurt also contains healthy bacteria, particularly probiotics that are found in the intestinal linings of the human body. These good bacteria are essential for maintaining health and are very helpful for those who aim to lose weight.
  • Cheese – there are certain types of cheeses that offer high amounts of whey protein, such as ricotta cheese, and those made entirely from separating whey protein from the curd.
  • Protein powders – when supplements and protein powders are readily available in special nutraceutical stores that specialize in health supplements and functional foods. Whey is available in powdered forms, which can be added to liquids like water or milk for easy consumption. If you want a more concentrated source of whey protein, these supplements are your best source, especially when you want to get the best benefits for the body such as muscle repair and maintenance, and proper weight management.
