Whey Protein and Blood Pressure.
By Bruce Brightman - Founder - LifeSource Vitamins
This latest study revealed that
has a normalizing effect on blood pressure levels, reducing levels
significantly in those at risk of hypertension. This may be due to whey's
impact on nitric oxide production, as nitric oxide helps your vessels
maintain their elasticity and its suppression leads to increases in blood
This benefit extends not only to those with, or at risk of, high blood
pressure; it's important to maintain healthy blood pressure levels too.
One recent study found, for instance, that supplementation with the
whey-derived peptide NOP-47 had a positive impact on vascular function in
healthy people. Blood flow in the arm improved by 2.7 percent per minute
following whey protein supplementation, but did not change for those in the
control group who took a placebo. So in choosing a protein powder as a meal
replacement, protein source or exercise recovery drink, you'll support
healthy blood pressure levels just by choosing whey protein.
"Studies found that
beverages lowered BP only in individuals with previously high BP, but not
in those with normal blood pressure .
These findings suggest that whey protein beverages had a normalizing effect
on elevated BP and did not cause hypotension. This is important since
hypotension can be a health concern in certain population groups, such as
young women and the elderly."
There are numerous reasons to choose whey over other protein powders, even
beyond its influence on your blood pressure. For instance, whey protein
· Help your pancreas-produced insulin work more effectively, which helps
maintain your blood sugar level after a meal

vitamins, and minerals needed for your overall wellness

help optimize your production of glutathione, which is considered by many

antioxidants, including vitamins C and E, CoQ10, alpha-lipoic acid, and
fresh veggies and fruits you eat. It also removes toxins from your cells
