Whey Protein Concentrate vs Isolate:
The Cross-Flow Micro-Filtration process used for the Concentrate also helps
to retain a few of the peptides in their best forms when compared to
isolates manufactured using the ion exchange method. It is an excellent
choice if you are looking to build muscle or for repair and recovery
without adding body fat. The low levels of lactose in the compounds make it
an ideal choice for you in case you have lactose intolerance.
Even though whey protein concentrates have less protein per unit than whey
protein isolates, it is interesting to note that many peptides beneficial
to health are found in the concentrates. It is also important to note that
these compounds have a beneficial effect only if they remain in their basic
format. LifeSource Vitamins Whey Concentrates ensure these peptides remain
for maximum benefits.
The Cows we have always chosen, it really matters!
We have a very select group of United States Midwest ranchers that we deal
with and have for 25 plus years, that raise the cattle the way we feel they
should be raised. They raise them humanely and with compassion. These
ranchers do not use any hormones, chemicals, or GMO’s (Genetically Modified
Organisms). They also must be grass fed which is what they should be
ingesting for their long term health. With this process comes the most
nutritiously rich, nutrient-packed milk which in turn means the best
possible whey protein is produced from this milk. Over 95% of all ranchers
in the United States cannot qualify for us to work with them for our whey
protein due to what they feed these animals, the hormones, antibiotics,
etc. These same cattle ranchers that we cannot use also add GMO Corn or
food to cut their expenses; this is simply not acceptable for LifeSource
Vitamins, so this really limits who we can work with.
I guess that TV commercial really is right, Happy Cows Make Happy Milk,
or in our case, Whey Protein!
*** Do not be fooled by Low-Cost Protein Powders, Low-cost protein
powders mean one of two things and most often both. They are using heat
to process the protein and the protein powder is from China. Think of
it this way: China has horrible standards, they pay their people $1.32
an hour on the avg and use heat and then they ship it over here on a
barge that takes roughly 6 weeks, then it goes through customs. At this
point it has to make it's way to the Vitamin company that bought it,
then they bottle it, stick their label on it and sell it online or in a
store for a lot less. Does something seem wrong here? Most whey
proteins will flow right through you with very little or no actual
benefit! This is due to the way the protein is processed and the diets
of these cows as to how the human body will upload and utilize this
protein. These proteins are considered Dead! This is why you don't see
the gains that you should when taking Whey Protein.

Our Whey Proteins are sweetened with Stevia, not Sucralose, Fructose or
No Maltodextrin. Why is this important:
People with specific food allergies, such as those who suffer from Celiac
disease or have other allergies to wheat, corn, potatoes or virtually any
base starch from which maltodextrin is processed, might want to stay away
from maltodextrin or maltodextrin-containing foods. A reaction to
maltodextrin is often a reaction to the base starch from which maltodextrin
is processed. If after consuming maltodextrin you have symptoms similar to
allergies you have to wheat, corn or potatoes, it may be worth considering
a potential allergy to maltodextrin. Symptoms may include hives and itching
or eczema-like rashes, asthma or allergic rhinitis.*
More Benefits of LifeSource Vitamins Whey Protein Concentrate:
Most whey protein comes from milk that has been pasteurized, but what does
pasteurization mean and why is it important? Pasteurization (heating the
milk at very high temperatures) by definition means the complete
destruction of all the enzymes in the milk. Milk is declared pasteurized
when you don't find any enzymes left.
Pasteurization not only kills the enzymes and complex proteins which
are critically important, it also:
1. Alters the amino acids in the milk and destroys many, if not all of the
2. Destroys the unsaturated fatty acids
3. Kills most if not all of the vitamins
4. Greatly reduces the availability of the minerals
So after pasteurization, the milk is for all intense purposes not only
essentially dead but puts a strain on your body because your pancreas needs
to produce lots of digestive enzymes to digest and absorb the dead milk!
Understanding how pasteurization affects the quality of the milk is
incredibly important because the quality of the Whey protein powder, bars
and drinks can only be as good as the milk it is coming from. Dead
processed milk can only produce dead processed whey protein and that's not
what you want to feed your body if you want to be healthy and excel on the
sports field. So the second step in choosing a quality whey protein product
is to make sure the milk used to produce the whey protein has not been
pasteurized at high temperatures! You wonder why so many whey protein
products on the market are cheap, it is simply because they are processed
cheaply and simply don't work!
Grass-fed cattle produce whey protein that contains significant
health benefits over corn-fed beef & other conventional means
of raising cattle.
Grass-fed cows have higher amounts of omega-3 fatty acids. These
are the healthy fats found in salmon, flax-seed, and walnuts.
Studies indicate these help prevent heart disease and bolster the
Grass-fed cows also produce higher levels of Conjugated Linoleic
Acid (CLA’s) and vitamins A & E. Research indicates that these
antioxidants and healthy acids help fight breast cancer,
atherosclerosis, and type 2 diabetes.*
With proper management, animals raised on pastures rather than Concentrated
Animal Feeding Operations (CAFO’s) or factory farms represent a net benefit
to the environment. Farming cattle on pasture contribute to a complete
ecological cycle. Grazing cattle cyclically do their own harvesting and
fertilizing, which create the next cycle of vegetation.
Grazing cattle is the most effective way to reduce erosion and water
pollution. The grasses produce solid root structures that help avert
erosion, allow for the soil to hold water, refill aquifers, and protect
surface water. Conversely, managed pastureland's make virtually no
contribution to soil erosion, groundwater loss, or water pollution.
Raising cattle exclusively on grass is the most energy efficient method
whey cattle raising. Grazing cattle produce two calories of energy profit
(food, fertilizer, and fiber) for every one calorie of fossil fuel used. By
comparison, in order to raise cattle on grains, row crops are required.
Cultivating row crops uses between five and ten calories of fossil fuel for
each calorie of food harvested (machinery used for tilling, planting, and
harvesting). Consequently, it is ten to twenty times more energy efficient
to raise cattle wholly on grass than on grains.
Grass-fed meat and dairy products have less fat and more vitamin E,
beta-carotene and cancer-fighting fatty acids than factory-farm products.
All across the country, farmers and ranchers are returning to this ancient
and healthier way of raising animals. Instead of sending them to feedlots
to be fattened on grain, farmers are keeping animals home on the range.
Cattle graze, lie down, chew their cud, graze—a soothing cycle, repeated
day after day—and chickens hunt for seeds and bugs as their ancestors have
for eons. Although raising livestock on pasture is viewed as a radical
departure from modern ranching, it is simply a return to a more balanced
system. Ranchers boycotting the feedlots are hardworking pioneers whose
goal is to make a living selling their products directly to customers like
LifeSource Vitamins, restaurants and natural food stores. By eliminating
some of the middlemen they hope to accomplish what can seem like an
impossible dream: making a decent living from a small, family farm.
RESULTS ARE ALL THAT MATTER AT LIFESOURCE VITAMINS THAT IS ALL THAT
SHOULD MATTER WITH ANY SUPPLEMENTS, RIGHT?
As we age we lose muscle, but also as we age we tend to eat less food, and
protein in particular, so when you find yourself getting above 60 and see
that your meat/ protein intake is lessening this is a great time to add
Whey Protein to your diet. You will be amazed when your body has enough
protein just what it can do well into your elderly years. Don't make the
mistake of not feeding your body protein as you age! You can also try our
Meal Replacements; they are the exact same protein but with added vitamins
& minerals to ensure you are fueling your body's needs completely!
Who should take Whey Protein?
Everyone, quite simply. Why? Our bodies need more protein to properly
function than we can actually consume through our food channels. And the
older we get the less we can attain the benefits of eating lots of meat as
our bodies cannot process the hard to digest fibers of meat in our later
***At LifeSource Vitamins, we do not mass-produce our protein as most other
companies do, we make small batches every couple of weeks to ensure that
your body receives the freshest protein and utilizes the protein as it is
intended to through a fresh protein base. Bodies cannot upload or utilize
dead proteins. Ours most assuredly is Alive!
How much protein you need to consume depends on many factors. The WHO
(World Health Organization) set the minimum protein intake at about 1/3 of
a gram of protein per pound of body weight. The first column in the chart
below reflects this. Protein requirements for most people should fall
between the Medium and Typical columns.
Studies show normal weight lifters might need .72g/lb. of body weight;
highly trained cyclists might need .8g/lb. of body weight; rigorous
exercise training might require 1.3g/lb, and world-class lifters may use
upwards of 1.6g/lb. A good rule of thumb is to eat protein (grams) to match
your ideal body weight.
LifeSource Vitamins Whey Proteins are Perfect for Low Carb Diets!
Protein is the major source of building materials for muscles, hair, nails,
skin and internal organs. With so much at stake, attention must be focused
on sufficient intake of protein in our diets. And even greater demands for
protein are placed on athletes with rigorous training schedules. An
accurate evaluation of protein consumption is warranted in order to make
any necessary changes in diet or supplementation.*
QUESTIONS & ANSWERS:
Q: Why do I need protein?
A: Protein is an important nutrient needed by everyone on a daily basis. It
is made up of essential and non-essential amino acids, which are the
"building blocks" for healthy bodies. Protein has a number of different
roles in the body including the following:
Build and repair muscles and bones*
Repair body cells*
Provide a source of energy*
Control many of the important processes in the body related to
Q: How are the essential and non-essential amino acids different?
A: The body is able to make non-essential amino acids from other amino
acids in the body. However, the body is not able to make essential amino
acids and the only way to get them is by eating high-quality protein foods.
Protein sources that contain all of the essential amino acids are called
complete proteins. Our Whey Proteins are a naturally complete protein, a
great way to supplement your protein intake.*
Q: Is Whey Protein good for athletes and people who exercise?
A: "Critical" would be a word I would use here! Whey
protein is a high quality, complete protein, with all the essential amino
acids. Whey protein is also the richest known source of naturally occurring
branched chain amino acids (Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine). These are
important for active individuals, individuals who exercise and professional
athletes. The body requires higher amounts of branched chain amino acids
during and following exercise as they are taken up directly by the skeletal
muscles versus first being metabolized through the liver, like other amino
acids. Low BCAA levels contribute to fatigue and they should be replaced in
one-hour or less following exercise or participation in a competitive
event. It should also be taken by anyone; age doesn’t really matter here as
we all need protein intake young and old as protein helps keep muscle tone.
Our mistake as adults is that we think we are just getting old and
losing muscle tone when what we are really doing is not feeding enough
protein to our bodies which would help us keep the muscle tone, and
thus we don't retain muscles that we should through everyday life.*
Q: Is Whey Protein compatible with a low-carbohydrate diet?
A: Yes. Whey protein is not only compatible with low-carbohydrate diets it
is an ideal choice. Be sure to select whey protein concentrate which
provides high quality clean and alive protein without the carbohydrates and
fat often limited in low carbohydrate diets. LifeSource Vitamins Whey
Proteins are a great low carb nutrient.*
Q: Will Whey Protein help me lose weight?
A: Adding our Whey Protein to your diet is a great way to jump-start a
weight loss program. Whey protein is a key ingredient in numerous weight
loss and meal replacement products and whey protein (with no fat or
carbohydrates) is often the preferred choice. Studies have found that
individuals who combine diets with leucine rich protein foods, like whey
protein, and exercise have more lean muscle tissue and they lose more body
fat. As they lose fat their metabolic rate increases and they naturally
burn more calories each day. Another way that whey protein helps manage
weight is by promoting satiety, or a feeling of fullness. One recent study
showed that whey protein was superior to casein, the other protein in cow's
milk, in promoting satiety.*
Q: Is whey protein a good protein choice following bariatric weight
A: Following bariatric surgery, it is important to follow a special diet
designed by a physician and/or nutrition professional. Protein plays an
essential role in diets, as it is the primary food source following
surgery. Inadequate amounts may contribute to hair loss, muscle loss, and
poor skin tone. LifeSource Vitamins Whey Proteins are an excellent protein
choice post-surgery as it is very easy to digest and efficiently absorbed
into the body. It doesn't sit in the stomach for long periods of time like
beef and other protein foods that may upset the system.*
Q: How does whey protein compare to other types of proteins?
A: Protein foods are not equal and can vary in a number of ways including
Number and quantity of essential amino acids
Digestion and absorption rates
Whey protein is a very high-quality complete protein with rich amounts
of all the essential amino acids.
Q: How does whey protein compare to soy protein?
A: Here are some of the differences between whey protein and soy protein.
Whey protein is a nutritionally complete protein. It contains bioactive
ingredients, like immunoglobulin's and lactoferrin that help supports
the immune system.*
Athletes prefer whey protein to soy protein due to its rich abundance
of branched chain amino acids and its quick absorption rate. These are
important to help repair and rebuild muscles after a workout or
Whey protein has a fresh, neutral taste compared to soy protein and
will not change the taste of foods you add it to.
Whey protein does not contain isoflavones or any other components with
potential hormonal effects.
Q : I eat a lot of fish, chicken, eggs, soy, and beef. Why do I still
need whey protein?
A: Healthy diets should regularly include high quality, low-fat sources of
protein, like whey protein. Calories do count and you want to make sure
that you are getting the most benefit from the calories you consume.
Compared to other proteins, on a gram-to-gram basis, our Whey Protein
delivers more essential amino acids to the body but without the fat or
cholesterol. Nutritional experts around the world recommend a diet with a
variety of protein foods but for optimal results make sure that the main
consumption is whey protein and from a company you trust!
Q: Can I get enough whey protein by drinking milk?
A: Milk is a highly nutritious beverage however; it only contains about 1%
of whey protein. In order to get all the benefits of whey protein, you need
to take a concentrated whey protein powder.
Q: Are all Whey Proteins the same?
A: No. There may be a major difference in the quality of whey protein based
upon the following factors:
Source of milk the cows are producing. We know our cows, they are
healthy and happy!
Type of Cheese Produced
Individual Manufacturer Specifications
Q: Is Whey Protein easy to digest?
A: Whey protein is soluble; a very easily digestible protein. It quickly
enters the body to provide the important essential amino acids needed to
nourish muscles and other body tissues. This is one of the reasons it is a
common ingredient in infant formula and protein supplements for medical
Q: If I'm lactose intolerant should I avoid Whey Protein?
A: Individuals with lactose intolerance should select a pure whey protein
isolate, which has less than 0.1 gram of lactose per tablespoon (20 grams).
This is less lactose than the amount found in a cup of yogurt and research
has shown that most people with lactose intolerance have no trouble taking
this very small amount of lactose. Individuals with lactose intolerance
should avoid whey protein concentrates as they usually contain lactose and
the amount can vary greatly from product to product.
Q: Is Whey Protein a good choice for vegetarians?
A: Yes, LifeSource Vitamins Whey Proteins are an excellent choice for
vegetarians who include dairy products in their diet.
Q: Does LifeSource Vitamins Whey Protein contain gluten or wheat
A: Ours does not contain any gluten or wheat.
Q: What are the side effects of taking Whey Protein?
A: There are no documented side effects provided a person does not have an
allergy to dairy proteins or does not need to restrict dairy products for
medical reasons. If you are allergic to dairy proteins please consult with
a physician prior to consuming any type of whey protein.
Q: Is Whey Protein's safe for pregnant women and children?
A: Whey protein is a complete high-quality protein and should be an
acceptable protein source for healthy pregnant women and children, provided
they are not allergic to dairy proteins. The second most abundant component
in whey protein is alpha-lactalbumin, which is one of the main whey
proteins in human breast milk. Infant formulas often contain whey protein,
including special formulas for premature infants. Prior to taking any whey
protein, both pregnant women and parents of young children should consult a
physician to be sure whey protein is right for them.

+ By comparison, grass-fed cows produce whey that is lower in saturated fat
than corn fed, due to the fact that grass is high in protein and fiber
while being low in starch. For example, according to the “Food Revolution”,
a sirloin steak from corn-fed feedlot cows has more than double the total
fat of a similar cut from grass-fed cows. So we all know what this means as
far as Whey Protein, simply a far superior protein, better for your body
and absorption which means better results.*
