Anti-inflammatory and antioxidant

By Jean-Francois Lesgardes

Prolonged imbalances in our eating habits, lifestyle (smoking, lack of physical activity) and environmental factors (stress, pollution) attack our cells through several biochemical reactions called oxidation. The oxidation of cells can be compared to the rusting of metals when exposed to air. Prolonged oxidation (called oxidative stress) is associated with chronic inflammation which can cause the appearance of different pathologies ranging from simple disorders such as a decrease in the quality of the skin, flu and colds, to more serious inflammatory diseases such as: cardiovascular diseases, cancer, neurodegenerative and other diseases, as well as aging.

We all experience oxidation in our bodies, it's inevitable, but we can fight it - and one of the best ways to fight it is with the body's most powerful natural antioxidant called Glutathione. (GSH) which is made from 3 amino acids, of which cold-prepared whey from grass-fed cow's milk is particularly rich.

Antioxidants found in fruits and vegetables and many supplements on the market such as vitamins (C, E, B), polyphenols/flavonoids can be beneficial in the fight against oxidation and aging BUT they are consumed or "burnt » during oxidation and not regenerated.
On the other hand, your body can continuously produce Glutathione, which is the master antioxidant. If you provide your body with the right nutrition. However among the amino acids necessary to manufacture GSH, Cysteine ​​is particularly sensitive to heat and therefore to cooking. However, most of the foods we eat and which constitute our protein intake are cooked, the amino acids are therefore partially denatured or even degraded and are no longer usable optimally by the body. Protélicious Whey, cold processed and very rich in Cysteine, is optimal for manufacturing GSH, the most powerful natural antioxidant to fight oxidation and reduce inflammation.
