Scientists have known for years that certain biological components of whey protein (including lactoferrin, beta-lactoglobulin, alpha-lactalbumin, glycomacropeptide, and immunoglobulins) have a beneficial impact on the immune system. Life Extension® developed a specially designed whey protein, using proprietary production methodology, that has been shown to support healthy immune function, protect against free radical attack, and help maintain lean muscle mass.
Using a low temperature microfiltration technique, it was possible to produce a high-quality, 98% undenatured whey protein isolate that acts as a powerful immune stimulant. It also retains all the important sub-fractions, such as lactoferrin - a strong antioxidant with immune-stimulating properties.
