  1. Does it follow that Whey protein supplements would be beneficial?

  2. Hi Dave,

    It depends on the context. High-quality whey proteins will boost glutathione status, which is good. However, you don't want to do this at the expense of eliminating nutrient-dense foods or at the expense of consuming too much protein.

    Beware of the term "undenatured" when it comes to whey proteins, because all whey proteins are mostly undenatured. If you want to take a whey protein supplement, look for ones that boast of low-temperature processing, minimal pasteurization (i.e. one HTST or classical pasteurization), or, prefereably, are raw like Whey Cool. Look for whey proteins, if you can find them, that boast of high concentrations of beta-lactoglobulin, serum albumin, and immunoglobulins.

    Hope that helps,
    Chris

  3. Most people don't realize that Glutathione is the number one antioxidant in the world which is great for healthy blood cells distributing through the body. Not only that but other than the low production of it within our bodies it's only found in raw meat, raw eggs, and raw milk - which is where whey protein is found.

    I recently wrote an article over here on the natural whey protein powder you should check out for some great additional tips. Let me know what you think too.

  4. The Weston A Price site changed the URLs on their blogs, so the link you provided above no longer works. The new one is http://www.westonaprice.org/blogs/2010/09/11/the-biochemical-magic-of-raw-milk-and-other-raw-foods-glutathione/
    Great article, btw.
