Pro-Optimal Whey: Highest Quality Ingredients and Formulation
When used with a balanced whole foods diet, Pro-Optimal Whey is designed to help promote an optimal intake of protein, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals needed for overall wellness. Pro-Optimal Whey is made with Proserum, native whey protein concentrate. It maintains the full range of all the fragile immune-boosting and regenerative components naturally present in fresh raw milk. It is produced using proprietary filtration and drying which involves minimal processing. This unique production method ensures that the whey is not subjected to temperatures that would destroy the original components. We do not use cross-flow filtration, microfiltration, hydrolyzation or ion exchange methods which denature the original proteins which come from herds that graze year-round on disease-free, pesticide-free, chemical-free, natural grass pastures. Milk from grass-fed cows has many times higher levels of CLA and contains a proper balance of essential fatty acids. The milking cows are never fed grain or subjected to any growth hormone treatment, chemicals, antibiotics, genetically modified organisms, hyperimmunization or injected pathogens. The result is the highest quality protein formulation available.
Better than Soy
Whey protein is nature's richest source of biologically active protein. Unlike soy protein, which is low in the amino acid methionine, whey protein contains all the amino acids the body needs in the best balance yet discovered in any food.
Whey protein is derived from milk. We have added the proprietary full spectrum enzyme blend n-zymes which contains lactase and proteases. This blend was added to aid in digestion of the small amount of lactose present and to assist in the breakdown and assimilation of the various high quality proteins found in milk.
