Immuno Boosting: Tumor Killing Whey Fructions

Lil Peeps Nutrition contains high levels of immuno components, some of which are known for their tumor killing properties. Virtually all these whey fructions exist in human’s milk, playing important roles in protecting the newborn from bacterial and viral pathogens and regulating a healthy cellular growth. Following are the most notable whey’s immuno fructions.

Lactoferrin: a multi-functional protein to which several physiological roles have been attributed. These include:

- Defense against microbial infections

- Regulation of iron transfer and metabolism

- Anti-inflammatory activity

- Regulation of cellular growth

- Protection against cancer development and metastasis

Glycomacropeptides (GMP) – a casein derived peptide found in whey protein. GMP is a by-product of cheese manufacturing. Its beneficial biological roles include:

- Stimulation of cholecystokin (CKK), a peptide hormone that regulates satiety, food intake and energy. The stimulation of CKK has been linked to early satiety from meals, reduced food intake and weight loss.

- Inhibition of platelet aggregation, a cardiovascular protective property

- Support of beneficial gut bacteria (bifido bacterium)

- GMP rich whey is also a good source of branch chain amino acids (BCAA), which have shown to help promote muscle buildup and prevent muscle wasting

Alpha Lactalbumin – most abundant fruction in human milk, alpha lactalbumin plays a key biological role in the production of the sugar lactose, essential for growth and brain development of the newborn. Alpha lactalbumin is believed to possess antibacterial and anti-cancerous activities. A folding variant of alpha lactalbumin has shown to kill tumor and immature cells but spare mature healthy cells.

Alpha lactalbumin is generally low in bovine milk products but appear in higher concentrations in grass fed cows’ milk and whey.

Beta Lactalbumin – most abundant protein in bovine milk, it is not an inherent part of human milk. Beta lactalbumin’s main biological function is being a carrier of retinol (a pro-vitamin A) and a nutrient source for the amino acid cysteine.

Lacto Peroxidase – a peroxidase enzyme found in raw milk, known for its antioxidant anti-microbial properties. Lacto peroxidase is fairly heat resistant and can survive low heat whey processing but is generally destroyed due to over-pasteurization or acid processing.

Immunoglobulin G (IgG) – the most abundant immunoglobulin in the body, with a distinct biological role of providing protection against pathogens. IgG can bind to bacteria, viruses and fungi and protect the body (fetus and adult) against them by agglutination, immobilization and neutralization of their toxins. It also plays an important role in the antibody response system. There are 4 IgG subclasses (IgG 1, 2, 3, 4), IgG1 being the most abundant. Each of the 4 IgGs has its unique biological role in the immune/antibody response to pathogens.

Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) – an important precursor for the body’s most powerful antioxidant glutathione, a peptide with immuno-enhancing, anti-cancerous activity.
