How much do you know about whey and how it works with our body? We can see it everyday in fitness products commercials but do you know what it is? Whey is the by product from the production of cheese. Throughout the centuries it has been thrown out as waste, until people started to realize it’s power in the promotion of our health.
Whey is rich in protein, vitamins (B2, B6, B12, C, K), amino acids, enzymes, minerals that preserve life (calcium, phosphor, potassium, magnesium).
Minerals maintain the cells and prevent high blood pressure, stroke, heart attack.
Proteins prevent osteoporosis, regulate cholesterol, stop the effect of dental plaque, increase lean muscle mass, strengthen the immune system, reduce stress, and regenerate the liver.
The liver is the largest gland in the body and is the only internal organ that has the power to regenerate. It performs numerous, complex and important functions in our bodies to help keep us healthy.
Chemically produced drugs burden the liver, because they are foreign and unnatural for the body and therefore whey is recommended as a natural therapy for helping in the regeneration of the liver.
When conducting this sort of therapy, it should be done for a longer period of time every day. You will need to drink 0.5-1 L whey and avoid fatty foods, alcohol, cigarettes and any other toxins and substances that damage the liver. In order to achieve better and more rapid healing it is desirable that you implement cottage cheese in your diet at the same time. It is best to eat it for breakfast and on an empty stomach.
Whey is recommended for weight loss because whey proteins promote weight loss and contributes to an increase in muscle mass. In addition, it gives a feeling of satiety as they influence the levels of hormones that reduce appetite.
