Whey Protein Chocolate by Jarrow

Dietary protein is the only nutrient group that yields an appreciable amount of amino acids upon digestion. Since amino acids are the building blocks needed to create functional and structural proteins in the body, from antibodies for immune function to collagen for skin and bones, it is essential to consume adequate amounts. But when the body lacks an adequate supply of nitrogen compounds like protein and amino acids, a state referred to as “negative nitrogen balance,” it is forced to break down muscle tissue to liberate reserves. The opposite situation, a surplus (i. e., positive nitrogen balance), is necessary for muscle growth. So in order to build or maintain musculature, extra dietary protein is needed.

Whey not only contains a complete amino acid profile but also a host of other beneficial factors. These factors include alpha-lactalbumin, beta-lactoglobulin, lactoferrin, serum albumin, lysozyme, and immunoglobulins A, G, and M. In addition, whey protein provides more of the essential amino acids than other protein sources. Furthermore, about 25% of the amino acids in whey typically consist of branched chain amino acids (BCAAs). BCAAs are readily oxidized as an energy source during and after stress and exercise. Whey protein is a source of cysteine, a precursor to the vital intracellular antioxidant glutathione (GSH). GSH is depleted by oxidative stress that occurs during exercise, immune defense, and healing. Some researchers contend that whey protein plays a role in immune health by providing GSH precursors and increasing levels of GSH in tissue.


Mix one packet of 100% natural WHEY PROTEIN with 4 to 6 oz. of cold water, soy milk, juice or your favorite beverage. For a protein smoothie, blend with crushed ice and add juice or fruit to taste. May also be used with cereals, yogurt or pancakes to increase the protein in the diet.
