ImmunoPro Rx Whey Protein Concentrate is unique. It is a
Primary-Product of Fresh Milk. It is not a
by-product. It is the result of years of work to perfect a system that produces only the highest quality milk whey protein. There is no cheese produced in any part of our production. There is no chemical modification or pH regulation in the milk or whey.
The full range of the original proteins is intact and undenatured. The result is a superior product that contains exceptional amounts of the most important protein fractions. Additionally the vital proteins bound fats that whey protein isolates remove are still intact.
Traditionally, even the most expensive dietary whey products available are the by-products of cheese production with definite limitations in preserving the complete biological activity of the whey proteins. The milk goes through a heating process (approx. 163° F), chemical modification and pH regulation to produce cheese. Each of these steps denatures (damages) the whey proteins. The denatured proteins are then filtered out and what remains is a narrow range of undenatured proteins that have survived the processing. From this point on there is little heat added and some of these whey protein isolates are then referred to as cold process.
Undenatured Protein is Essential for a Vital Immune System
* The Importance of Cysteine vs. Cystine
Biologically active whey protein that contains naturally occurring
Cysteine is the optimal component for the intracellular production of Glutathione (GSH). Cysteine is very scarce in our modern diet and therefore Glutathione production is limited and deficiency is prevalent. If Cysteine undergoes any heating or processing, as all conventional dairy and dairy by-products do, it is denatured and converted to Cystine.
Cystine is the form that is found in
most medical food whey proteins, as they are all by-products. ImmunoPro
Rx contains only naturally occurring Cysteine.
An important note on the synthesized free form amino acid L-Cysteine,
it can have adverse effects in supplemental
doses with sensitive individuals.
The Journal of the American College of Nutrition Volume 5, 1986, published a paper by Anderson and Meister titled "Intracellular Delivery of Cysteine and Glutathione Delivery Systems." It concluded that when subjects were fed naturally occurring
Cysteine, it gave them significantly more production of Glutathione than when fed Cystine.
Regarding Whey Protein Concentrate: The journal Immunology 61: 503-508, 1987 reports, The bioactivity occurs through the ability of the protein concentrate to help replenish Glutathione levels via continuous dietary provision of Glutathione precursors, especially
Cysteine, during lymphocyte proliferation, thus supporting an optimal immune response. This process seems to not only increase intercellular levels of Glutathione and precursors at the time of ingestion, but also builds up stores of these substances within the cells which lasts for a substantial post-ingestion time interval."
ImmunoPro Rx is the only True Undenatured Biologically Active Whey
Protein. It is a Primary-Product and contains the full range of naturally occurring protein fractions. It contains the highest levels of Lactoferrin, Immunoglobulins, and Serum Albumin. Laboratory verified* as many times higher than the leading whey protein products. These three protein fractions contain exceptional amounts of Cysteine.
ImmunoPro Rx contains the following protein
* ImmunoPro Rx- is far more potent than any whey product available.
an iron-binding, iron-modulating protein
that enhances iron absorption when
needed; anti-inflammatory properties,
supports immune health.
340 milligrams* per 10 grams.
- Immunoglobulins, with numerous immune system benefits.
1.6 grams* per 10 grams.
- Bovine Serum
Albumin, along with Lactoferrin and IgGs contain generous
amounts of Cysteine, precursors to
Glutathione (GSH) production.
- Active Peptides (specialized paired amino acids), exhibit a beneficial information transfer factor effect on
the immune system as well as boosting intracellular Glutathione.
- Growth Factors
(growth promoting protein fractions) are
contained within the protein bound fats.
* As determined by an independent laboratory using the SDS PAGE Gel method.
* The milk for ImmunoPro Rx and all of our exclusive whey protein products is from herds that graze on disease-free, pesticide-free, chemical free, natural grass pastures and the milking cows are not subject to any chemicals, hormones, antibiotics, genetically modified organisms, hyperimmunization or injected pathogens. They do not ingest any unnatural man-made substances. There is no history of bovine disease with the milk cows or dairy. The cows have never been fed any imported food or cannibalistic by-products.
