digestive enzymes found in whey protein powder enhance its absorption
· Alpha-lactalbumin, found in whey protein helps in raising brain serotonin
levels and may assist in reducing stress levels.

What are the effects on a women's body?
Expectant mothers may benefit from whey protein supplements but there is
little scientific research to back this idea up. Infant formulas often use
whey protein because whey contains the same components found in human
breast milk. There are no studies to show that whey assists in mothers
producing their own breast milk.
Some studies have shown that whey protein can increase blood levels of
glutathione. Glutathione is an antioxidant which is essential to a healthy
What will happen if I stop using whey protein?
Nothing at all. There is no rebound effect with whey protein. Whey protein
is not addictive so there is nothing to worry about when stopping, but
there is no real benefit to stop using whey protein. Whey protein is a
healthy, protein-based product.
Why don't other women use whey protein shakes?
Many women are starting to experiment with protein shakes. We are bombarded
with marketing hype about diets and body fat. It can be really hard to sort
out the rubbish from the truth. Many of the meal replacement drinks
marketed towards women are full of sugar and do not help you to lose any
fat at all.
Most whey protein is marketed towards male weightlifters. The marketing and
advertising is male orientated and usually, do not interest women so they
miss out on a lot of information about the benefits of whey protein.
When is the right time to have whey protein?
If you are doing a diet you can take whey protein in replace of one of your
meals. It is still important to eat whole foods so only replace one or two
of your meals at the most.
Who can have whey protein shakes?
Anyone that is healthy. If you have any health issues you should consult a
medical expert first.
How often should you consume whey protein?
There is no real limit on how often you can consume whey protein. As a meal
replacement, I recommend that you only replace one meal a day with a whey
How long will whey protein powder keep for?
Whey protein powder should have a shelf life of about 12 months.
How do you prepare a whey protein shake?
Just add one scoop (19 to 25 grams of protein) of powder to water, milk,
juice or whatever else you want to drink
Will whey protein give me big muscles?
No. Weightlifting will give you muscles, although, a female will not grow
big muscles like a male.
Will I get fat drinking whey protein shakes?
Fat is gained by consuming more calories than what you burn off. Whey
protein will not make you fat unless you consume huge amounts and sit
around doing nothing all day.
