BioPure Protein by Metagenics is a great-tasting, high-grade whey protein that is manufactured using a selective membrane technology process. This process allows the high quality whey protein and the immunoglobulins (antibodies) from the milk to pass through but discards all of the unwanted parts such as lactose. This ensures a whey protein that is easier to digest with less unwanted side effects, such as lactose-related gas.
Providing a regular source of essential amino acids, such as those found in whey protein, is vital to muscle tissue repair following exercise, and especially resistance exercise. The amino acids found in protein are the very building blocks upon which our own muscle tissue is built. Without them, the muscles don’t have the supplies needed to repair and grow muscle after your workouts.
The body is in a constant cycle of building or breaking down muscle tissue (called protein turnover), due to it’s constant need for amino acids for cellular repair throughout the body and to eliminate damaged cells in muscle. The more regularly you consume protein, the less the body has to use it’s own stores, which of course are the muscles. To put it plainly, consuming protein regularly prevents the body from breaking down that hard-earned muscle and helps the body build muscle instead.
Adding to the quality of this protein, the immunoglobulins/antibodies in BioPure Protein have immune enhancing benefits. Many studies have shown that the antibodies found in whey protein stay in tact throughout the digestion process, as many as 50%, in fact. These antibodies can bind to allergens in the gut and render them harmless. They also help prevent GI infections, respiratory infections and lower inflammation.

Recommended Dosage (adult)
Mix about 2 scoops with a cold beverage or add to your favorite recipe once daily or as recommended by your healthcare practitioner. To prevent protein denaturation and maintain the protein activity level, do not mix in hot drinks or recipes that require baking or boiling. Also, do not mix with pineapples or papayas because their enzymes may denature the protein.
