Advanced Orthomolecular Research (AOR) Advanced Whey
Advanced Whey by AOR is no regular whey protein. It combines whey protein isolate with a high-protein concentrate (76% protein), which could offer benefits not associated with whey protein isolate alone. A quality whey protein supplement like Advanced Whey consists of about alpha-lactalbumin. Advanced Whey is also enriched in lactoferrin. Lactoferrin levels increase naturally after intense bouts of physical activity.* This response possibly enhances the immune system which can be weakened by rigorous exercise.* Advanced Whey uses cross-flow microfiltration (not ion-exchange) to maximize protein content and minimize unnecessary carbohydrate and saturated fat while retaining all bioactive peptide subfractions. The low temperature, filtration-based processing techniques used in these materials allow absolute minimal protein denaturation.*
Lactoferrin forms a much smaller percentage of whey protein than does alpha-lactalbumin. However, its prominence in whey protein far exceeds its relatively minute size. In spite of its weight of only 80 kilodaltons at its most elemental level, Lactoferrin contains 703 different amino acids. Lactoferrin is an iron-binding whey fraction that could demonstrate an anti-microbial capability comparable to that of alpha-lactalbumin in addition to being able to help control inflammation and cholesterol.*
Alpha-lactalbumin has been associated with anti-carcinogenic and anti-microbial activity.*
There is a particularly innovative whey protein fraction called N-acetylneuraminic acid – commonly known as sialic acid – that has been garnering attention lately. Definitively speaking, sialic acids are sugar molecules that are part of the glycomacropeptide content of whey protein. They are especially present in the content of human mucus and saliva and their biological role is to bind to invading pathogens for their subsequent excretion via the mucus membranes.
Non-Medicinal Ingredients: Cross-ﬂow microfltered whey protein isolate, whey protein concentrate, lactoferrin isolate, sunﬂower lecithin (natural French vanilla ﬂavouring added to ﬂavoured whey.
