Whey Protein Powder Isolate
w/Lactoferin (benefits/ingredients) by Life Extension Foundation
Using a low temperature microfiltration technique, it is possible to produce a 98% undenatured whey protein isolate that acts as a powerful immune stimulant and retains all the important subfractions, such as lactoferrin, a strong antioxidant with immune properties.
Enhanced Life Extension Protein is a third generation whey protein containing 4 times as much lactoferrin as most other whey protein supplements on the market, and is, to our knowledge, the only such whey protein supplement that contains added lactoferrin. Lactoferrin appears to be a subfraction of whey with the best documented and immune enhancing effects. When we talk about whey, we are actually referring to a complex protein made up of many smaller protein subfractions (peptides). Many of these subfractions are only found in very minute amounts in cows milk, normally at less than 1%. For example, lactoferrin makes up only 0.5% to 1% or less of whey protein derived from cows milk. Mothers milk, on the other hand, will contain up to 15% lactoferrin.
Lactoferrin is found throughout the human body and occurs in all secretions that bathe mucous membranes such as saliva, tears, bronchial and nasal secretions, hepatic bile, pancreatic fluids, and is an essential factor in the immune response. Lactoferrin is concentrated in oral cavities where it will come in direct contact with pathogens (i.e. viruses, bacteria, etc.) greatly suppressing these pathogens through a variety of different mechanisms. In fact, there are specific receptors for lactoferrin found on many key immune cells, such as lymphocytes, monocytes and macrophages, and is known to be directly involved in the up-regulation of natural killer (NK) cell activity. One study with baby pigs found that only 17% of the pigs died when fed lactoferrin and injected with a toxin (escherichia coli) as opposed to 74% of the pigs that died without the lactoferrin.

Note: Beware of whey protein products that contain artificial sweeteners such as acesulfame potassium, alitame, aspartame, neotame, saccharin, or sucralose. In addition, one of the most poisonous sweeteners used in most everything you eat and drink (soft drinks, etc.) today is called high fructose corn syrup made by Monsanto. High fructose corn syrup is bathed in the pesticide Roundup and the heavy metal poison called mercury.
Concerning BCAA's, L-Leucine should make up the highest content of the three in the protein supplement you choose.
