Whey Protein Can Lower Blood Pressure in Adults With Prehypertension and Mild Hypertension

A new study in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition indicates that the consumption of milk whey proteins improves vascular reactivity and lipid risk factors, and lowers blood pressure. Even more astounding was that the whey decreased both total cholesterol and triacylgycerol (trigylcerides).

Whey protein, a byproduct of milk and cheese (often referred to as the gold standard of protein), was promoted for its health benefits as early as 420 B.C. At that time, Hippocrates recommended whey to his patients. Today, whey is linked to health benefits such as supporting your immune system, helping you preserve lean body tissue (particularly during exercise) and, as reiterated with the present study, maintaining blood pressure levels and promoting healthy vascular function.

Besides providing all of the essential amino acids your body needs, high-quality whey protein from organically raised pastured cows also contains three ingredients of particular importance for health: leucine, glutathione and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), a fatty acid found in ruminant meat and dairy products.

Both leucine and CLA can be helpful if you're trying to lose weight, while glutathione boosts your overall health by protecting your cells and mitochondria from oxidative and peroxidative damage. CLA also can help prevent or fight asthma.

Other CLA benefits include helping to inhibit cancer cells, providing arthritis relief, and help with fighting diabetes. If you’re looking to supplement your diet with CLA, grass fed beef is the source I recommend above all other sources.
