Protein is an excellent source of gaining weight in cases of both nutritional deficiency and weight loss for unknown reasons and, particularly, due to advancing years. Proteins are used in the production of skin, hair, muscles and bones. In addition, protein is used to manufacture hormones, enzymes, cellular messengers, and immune system components. Without adequate protein, the body does not have the ability to put cells, tissues and organs together.
Despite the central role played by proteins in all life processes, it is only recently that researchers have begun to understand the role of certain dietary proteins in muscle toning, immune enhancement and, in fact, in longevity. One particular protein has garnered considerable attention that is found in all milks called whey, which is processed to transform into whey protein concentrate. Ultimate Nutrition's Supreme Whey is the whey protein.
Whey protein has long been recognized as the best means to repair tissue and to build muscle. Whey protein is a complete cocktail that contains all the essential and nonessential amino acids, and is also a rich source of branched-chain amino acids. Whey protein boosts the secretion of growth hormone naturally, which is promptly metabolized into insulin-like growth factor, IGF-1. It is the amounts of IGF-1 in the body that help build muscle and lean body mass in adults.
One of the greatest benefits of whey protein is that it improves immune function and, notably, elevates cellular glutathione levels. Glutathione is one of body's own potent antioxidants. Furthermore, glutathione is a detoxifying agent that neutralizes free radical metabolites and prevents lipid peroxidation of the cell membrane, which if left unchecked could break the cells open.
Ultimate Nutrition's Supreme Whey is obtained by a special procedure called ultrafiltration to ensure that all micro-ingredients are recovered. It is highly soluble, and is readily dissolved in nutritious fluids for maximal absorption in the body to provide natural support to build muscle and boost the immune system.
