Why eat Whey protein:

Whey proteins have substantial benefits as they provide a balanced source of essential amino acids.  This promotes lean muscle gain, while repairing and regenerating lean muscle mass. This protein is high in glutathione which is involved in antioxidant status, immunity and detoxification. It is less allergenic then casein, soy or egg proteins.   Whey protein is easily digested, it is readily absorbed. It provides a feeling of fullness,  helps to balance blood sugar levels, is beneficial for the gastro-intestinal tract, helps to support muscle integrity and helps with athletic performance and body composition.
