Thorne Research Hydrolyzed Whey Protein - 18 oz. (510g)
Thorne Research Hydrolyzed Whey Protein is a protein supplement enzymatically hydrolyzed for low allergenicity. Collectively, whey proteins have all the essential amino acids and in higher concentrations compared to various vegetable protein sources such as soy, corn, and wheat gluten. In addition to having the full spectrum of amino acids, the amino acids in whey are efficiently absorbed and utilized. Protein is the most important macronutrient for cleansing. Numerous studies show whey protein can boost glutathione levels, one of the most important molecules for detoxification. Furthermore, whey is high in cysteine and branched-chain amino acids (leucine, isoleucine, and valine) that can inhibit the transport of heavy metals across the blood-brain barrier into the brain.
- a high protein, low carbohydrate supplement with essential amino acids
- easily digested protein provides optimal absorption and utilization of amino acids
- helps boost glutathione levels; plus protein is essential for proper wound healing
- aids in detoxification; can be mixed with fruit juice for a great tasting drink
Adequate protein intake is essential for proper wound healing. Protein depletion can delay wound healing by inhibiting the production of collagen and repair of the extracellular matrix, by inhibiting the formation of new blood vessels within the wound area, and by interfering with wound remodeling.
The hydrolysis of whey protein by enzymes breaks the protein into smaller, more absorbable, less allergy-producing peptides. Hydrolyzed Whey Protein should be considered for individuals undergoing a cleansing or detoxification program, recovering from surgery or an injury, or needing additional, high quality protein, such as athletes and the elderly. Its high-protein, low-carbohydrate content also makes it attractive for individuals desiring to better manage their weight. Whey provides a complete protein with all essential amino acids. Blend two scoops of protein powder with fruit and liquid of choice.
