What are the benefits of whey protein for women?

By Bruce Brightman - Founder - LifeSource Vitamins

Whey protein as part of a balanced diet helps in preventing bone loss. It has also been found in studies that the high quality proteins found in whey are ideal to initiate the growth of new skin after surgery or burn therapy.

Whey protein powder is ideal for people who are lactose intolerant. Lactase and Aminogen digestive enzymes found in whey protein powder enhance its absorption capacity.

  • Alpha-lactalbumin, found in whey protein, helps in raising brain serotonin levels and may assist in reducting stress levels.
  • Whey protein increases the body levels of glutathione - a powerful anti-oxidant that is essential for maintaining a healthy immune system.
  • Whey protein powder that has little or no fat or carbohydrates.

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 immune system

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 bodyfat. 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 does 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 protein shake.

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.
