Wellness Tip: Whey protein
April 3, 2015
Whey protein is a popular supplement that can be taken for weight management and to increase lean muscle mass. This supplement will help you stay satiated and is an excellent source of energy when it contains medium chain fatty acids.
Whey protein contains glutathione, a powerful antioxidant that plays a crucial role in the liver's ability to detoxify. Whey is a dairy based protein and may not be suitable for you if you're looking for a vegan supplement. There are many options on the market and it is wise to read labels carefully. For the best option look for a high quality, organic, grass-fed, cold-pressed whey protein concentrate.
