Whey Osteoporosis Osteopenia information

Whey Osteoporosis Osteopenia information: If you have Osteopenia or Osteoporosis should you consider adding whey to your diet? Is whey good for building stronger bones? Research studies say, yes.  Whey can help your build stronger bones.

One of the newer areas of research is the effect of lactoferrin, a component of whey, on bone growth. This research has been led by scientists from New Zealand. They have been conducting whey Osteoporosis Osteopenia  resaearch for some time and their research shows real promise for anyone interested in using natural products to increase their bone density -  specificly using whey Osteoporosis, Osteopenia for bone growth. As a result of university studies, some have proposed using lactoferrin to build stronger bone. Others ask, "Why not just drink milk? Why bother with lactoferrin?

Special Note:Lactoferrin is a protein found in both cows milk and human milk.  Colostrum, the first milk produced after a baby is born, contains high levels of lactoferrin so newborns who are breastfed get significant amounts of whey.

More about Whey Osteoporosis Osteopenia. If you are trying to build stronger bones you need to understand that milk has two main sources of protein: cassein and whey. It is whey that contains lactoferrin, not  cassein.  So if you want to build stronger bones you may want a skip the cassein and just use concentrated lactoferrin.

If that is what you want, you may want to skip drinking whole milk and just consume whey, which contains the lactoferrin.  Also, if you have been diagnosed with Osteopenia or Osteoprosis , you want to remember that whole milk has an acidic ph (not good for bones) 

What to look for in a whey Osteoporosis Osteopenia product.

When buying a commercial whey Ostoporosis Osteopenia product there are a few things you need to know: 

Current technological processing for lactoferin  includes: ultrafiltration, microfiltration, reverse osmosis, and/or ion-exchange.

Each of these whey Ostoporosis Osteopenia products differs in the amount of protein, carbohydrates, immunoglobulins, lactose, minerals, and fat it contains.

There are 5 types of products:                                                                            1.Protein concentrates (ranging from 80-95 percent protein)                              2.Reduced lactose products                                                                                3.Protein isolate products                                                                              4.Demineralized products                                                                              5.Hydrolyzed products

Note: There can be different concentration of lactoferrin in each of these products. So, you really want to take time to read the label of any whey Osteoporosis Osteopenia product offered for sale. If you want to build stronger bones, remember that you are looking for a whey Osteoporosis Osteopenia product with a particular substance: lactoferin.  Lactoferin is what can help you increase your bone density.

Tips Shopping for Whey Ostoporosis Osteopenia products:

Most of the time you will find lactoferin products in the body building section of your health food stores. Why? Because body builders are particularly interested in concentrated protein so shop keepers shelve these products in their body builders section.

Don't go to the bone building supplement section of the health food store. It is unlikely that you will find lactoferin products there.  In fact, some  staff in your local health food store may not be aware of the research concerning lactoferrin's use for building stronger bones.  (Reading this article may put you 'ahead of the game' about natural ways to increase your bone density.)

You can also find lactoferrin products on line. Amazon is a well known supplier.


A few cautions about buying Whey Osteoporosis Osteopenia products

There can be some negatives about using whey Osteoporosis Ostopenia for bone building. If you are buying a commercially prepared product and planning to use it for health purposes, you want to be sure that it comes from cows that meet the highest health standards!

Many persons try to find products derived from cows raised with no antibiotics and pastured (fed) organic grass.

Also, with the emergence of mad cow disease several years ago, many buyers also check the country of origin of the whey so as to be  sure the product they are buying does not come from cows raised in countries where there is a history of mad cow disease. (According to online information published in 2016, mad cow has been been confirmed in cattle born in Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Ireland, Israel, Japan, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland, and the U.K. ) 

You may want to do a web search for the latest information on this topic. Perhaps some countries have been added to that list.  Take time to do a search before you buy.  Search for : name of country mad cow and you should get the up to date information.
