Natural Factors Whey Factors Protein Powder
Considered the “gold standard” for athletes and the physically active, it is well-known that whey protein has the highest “biological value,” a measurement of how well a protein retains nitrogen or how usable it is to the body, as high nitrogen absorption enhances muscle gain. Compared to other proteins, whey contains the highest concentration of branched-chain amino acids (BCAA) that serve as important fuel sources for skeletal muscle during periods of metabolic stress, including exercise.
In addition to its role in sports nutrition, whey protein is also a functional food with tremendous implications for general human health. It provides heart health benefits, enhances immune function, and helps maintain a healthy body weight and promote bone health. It is also a great alternative for parents who wish to boost their child’s nutritional status.
Whey Factors whey protein offers the highest quality and best-tasting whey protein, and is conveniently available in a variety of delicious natural flavours, in single-serving pouches, and 1 kg bottles. Whey Factors whey protein is sourced from grass-fed cattle, using natural Cross Flow Microfiltration and special care during processing to protect undenatured whey; it contains no artificial sweeteners or GMO ingredients, and is rBGH & BSE-free.

How it works
Whey protein promotes muscle growth and maintenance alongside a variety of other important health benefits. It possesses immune-strengthening and anti-carcinogenic properties, as it is rich in the amino acid cysteine, which stimulates glutathione production. Glutathione, in return, helps support the immune system by raising levels of antibodies and enzymes, in addition to producing detoxifying and antitumour effects.
In addition to immune support, Whey Factors helps with weight loss as protein increases satiety, thereby helping to decrease total daily caloric intake. Furthermore, due to the complex nature of protein structure, the body expends more energy in the digestion of protein, thereby increasing caloric expenditure after consuming a protein-rich meal. The bioactive components in Whey Factors also help reduce cardiovascular risk factors by balancing cholesterol levels, and protect against hypertension by inhibiting platelet aggregation and angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE).
Natural Factors is committed to producing premium quality products, which can be seen in the cross flow microfiltration method used to create Whey Factors. This advanced manufacturing technology results in the highest quality undamaged and undenatured whey protein with low fat and low lactose levels.
