Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory action
Many metabolic reactions in the body produce potentially harmful free radicals like reactive oxygen species (ROS). These ROS are readily disarmed by the body’s antioxidant systems. When there is excessive ROS species present or antioxidant levels become depleted, free radicals can accumulate and cause a state of inflammation that is considered to be the root cause of most illnesses.
Glutathione (GSH) is a powerful ROS-quenching antioxidant that is produced within the body. The amino acid, cysteine, is one of the most prominent rate-limiting precursors to the production of GSH and is abundantly available among lactoserum protein constituents. It has been shown that treatment with hydrolyzed whey peptides could increase GSH levels by more than 60%, thereby dramatically increasing antioxidant activity13.
Given the availability of these and many other potent antioxidants in lactoserum, it can be utilised as an effective anti-inflammatory that can promote gut health and prevent downstream diseases naturally.
Igs, Lp, and Lf all contribute to elevating immunity. This is partially achieved by shifting the microbiome profile to promote the growth of beneficial microbes through the targeted natural antibacterial activity of Lp and Lf, while Igs simultaneously bind toxins produced by gut bacteria11.
