New Zealand Whey Protein Concentrate

Natural Vanilla Flavor

As people age, they become more susceptible to muscle deterioration and a declining immune system. Fortunately, whey protein can have a positive impact on muscle construction and immunity due to its branched-chain amino acid profile (BCAAs) and naturally occurring lactoferrin and immunoglobins.

Unlike many commercial brands on the market, New Zealand Whey Protein Concentrate is uniquely derived from grass-fed, free range cows living healthy lives in New Zealand and not treated with growth hormone (rBST).

Life Extension’s New Zealand Whey Protein Concentrate offers the following:

  • Non-GMO whey protein concentrate
  • Naturally high levels of essential branched-chain amino acids
  • High-quality muscle building protein
  • Easily mixes into water or milk
  • Great taste! Available in both natural chocolate and natural vanilla flavors.

Suggested Use

Read the entire label and follow the direction carefully prior to use.

Mix one (1) scoop in approximately 4 to 8 ounces of water, milk or juice (to taste) daily, or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner. This product mixes best in room temperature liquid. This product contains New Zealand whey protein concentrate from grass fed cows not treated with growth hormone (rBST).

Other Ingredients

Whey protein concentrate, natural vanilla flavor, sunflower oil powder, maltodextrin, modified food starch, medium chain triglycerides, guar gum, gum arabic, sunflower lecithin, stevia extract.

FAQ

Does everyone need supplements? Not everyone needs supplements. However, just about everyone can benefit from supplements. You may have a specific issue you want to address, like fatigue or trouble focusing for more than a few minutes at a time. Or you may feel great, in which case supplements are like oiling the parts of a well-running machine so that it keeps performing at its best.

Why can’t I get all the vitamins and minerals I need from my food? That would be great, wouldn’t it? Unfortunately, most of the soil in which our food crops are grown has been depleted through extensive use. Hundreds of years ago, farmers could let fields “rest” for a season while the soil renewed itself with the help of rain, earthworms and microbial activity. Now with a more populated planet and higher food demands, fields are kept in production and the soil becomes depleted.

How do I know which supplements to take? If you have no specific health issues, start with a basic multivitamin or even with just vitamin C, proven to help prevent and shorten the duration of colds and flu-related illnesses.

If I take supplements, can I worry less about my diet? Supplements are never a substitute for a good, balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle. However, eating lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, drinking plenty of water, exercising, getting enough sleep AND fine-tuning your health with supplements can be a powerful combination.

Are supplements safe to take? Although supplements are generally safe, it’s always best to check with your doctor before starting on a program of supplements. Some supplements may not be appropriate for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, for example. And the most important thing is to observe how you feel while taking a particular supplement. Listen to the feedback your body will give you!

What if I’m pregnant? If you’re pregnant, ask your doctor or midwife about a good prenatal supplement. You may need extra iron or folic acid during your pregnancy, and prenatal vitamins are formulated with both you and the baby in mind.

Can supplements make me look better? Many people swear by treating their skin from the inside out. Popular beauty-boosting supplements are hyaluronic acid, collagen peptides, vitamin C, omega-3s and antioxidants. When combined with exercise, a healthy diet, enough sleep and use of sunscreen, these supplements can be a powerful weapon in your beauty arsenal.

Can supplements keep me from getting COVID-19? While no supplement has proven effective in preventing or curing COVID-19, a healthy body is more resistant to illnesses. Get enough sleep and exercise, drink plenty of water, eat the healthiest diet you can and find the right supplements for your body! Many people love immune-boosting supplements such as turmeric, ginger and of course, vitamin C.

Can supplements help me with stress? Many people swear by plant-based calming supplements such as chamomile, rhodiola rosea or ashwagandha. Melatonin is also popular for enhancing sleep. We believe that a healthy body is naturally more resistant to the stresses of everyday life, but you may need extra help from a supplement during a particularly stressful period.

How can I find the right supplement for me? Read, take advantage of the information we offer here, ask your friends and family what has worked for them, and ask your doctor! Then finally, choose a supplement according to your needs and observe how you feel while taking it. And lastly, congratulate yourself for taking an important step towards a healthier you!
