Consuming whey protein extensions can do a lot more than just build muscle tissue. Indeed, whey proteins can also give an individual’s immune system a health improve, as well as energize chemical reactions and serve as a structural component of all cells.
Much of the aid which whey proteins can bring to an individual’s immune system comes in the form of probiotics. Probiotics are ‘friendly’ types of bacteria which populate the gut and keep bad bacteria away. However, not all probiotics do the same thing or make it to the gut complete and in good working order. Fortunately, whey proteins can help to bring probiotics to the gut whilst they are still in a functional condition. Furthermore, some whey proteins actually contain probiotics such as acidophilus, bifidophilus, bifidobacterium.
Having a robust immune system can help an individual to tackle the germs they face on a daily basis far more effectively. Indeed, germs that can be transported from being huddled in a packed bus or train, shaking the hand of someone with a sniffle or picking up a child from a school that has ‘a bug going around’ can be combated far more robustly when an immune system is operating at optimum performance levels.
