At Healthy Planet Vitamins, we help your body fight back by taking the science of good nutrition one step further.  We’ve created a proprietary protein nutrition system—comprising of three separate products—that not only gives your body the tools it needs to combat the factors that threaten your health, but also what it needs to revitalize your inner youth, build healthy lean muscle, re-establish immune system strength and delay the effects of aging.

 1.     How does Healthy Planet Vitamins do this?

 We have created, quite literally, the purest forms of protein nutrients to be found anywhere on earth.  Our purest whey protein, purest glutamine and purest colostrum products fuel your body with the highest performance nutrition and give your body what it needs to maintain and increase cell growth.

 You may be thinking that high performance protein powders are the domain of bodybuilders and aren’t appropriate for you.  While it’s true that bodybuilders love Healthy Planet Vitamins protein products because of their unsurpassed purity level, the truth is that everyone can benefit from using the best possible protein.
 

2.     Why is protein important?

Proteins provide the structure for all living things.  Every living organism from the largest animal to the tiniest specimen is composed of protein.  Protein in its various forms participates in the vital chemical processes that sustain life.  They are a necessary part of every living cell in the body.  In fact, next to water, protein makes up the greatest portion of our body weight.  In the human body , protein substances make up the organs, muscles, ligaments, tendons, glandsnails, hair, as well as
many vital bodily fluids.  Further, proteins are essential for lean muscle and bone growth.
 

3.     So, what’s so great about “whey” protein?

 Worldwide, scientists and nutritionists agree whey protein is the best type of protein supplement to be found anywhere, surpassing soy and other types of supplements in its ability to deliver nutrients and help cell growth.

Whey protein has several benefits.  Whey protein delivers more muscle-building branched chain amino acids than most other proteins.  For health-focused consumers who want to add lean muscle, improve overall body composition, feel full longer, and regulate their weight, as well as those battling high blood pressure and those in need of boosting their immune system, science points to whey protein.

 Several studies have documented whey protein's positive influence on muscle protein synthesis following a single resistance training session.  Proteins are typically better than carbohydrates at producing a feeling of fullness.  Research has begun to examine whether different types of protein are better than others in providing this effect. Science suggests that whey protein supports this theory due to bioactive components that increase serum amino acid levels and slow digestion.

Whey protein can help regulate your food intake, which is essential in weight management.  Studies show that whey protein plays a vital role in reducing high blood pressure.  A study on individuals witnessed significant drops in diastolic blood pressure.  Such findings suggest whey protein has the ability to manage hypertension with fewer side effects than those with medication.
 

Recent studies have demonstrated the concentration of cysteine in whey protein boosts glutathione (GSH) production. Other protein sources do not have whey protein’s ability to boost GSH production, which is essential in boosting the immune function.  More and more people are becoming aware of the value of whey protein for many good reasons.  Whey protein has the ability to act as an antioxidant, antihypertensive, antitumor, antiviral, and antibacterial.  Clinical trials have successfully been performed using whey protein as an antimicrobial agent and in the treatment of cancer, HIV, hepatitis B & C, cardiovascular disease, and osteoporosis.  Further, whey protein plays a vital role in red blood cell production, in chemotherapy treatment, wound healing, as well as numerous immune functions.  It is also widely used by medical professionals for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), Fibromyalgia, Hepatitis, Cancer, HIV/AIDS, and respiratory disease.
 

 4.     Why is Healthy Planet Vitamins Purest Whey Protein better?

Not all whey proteins are of equal quality, and sometimes the fanciest brands of protein supplements are actually among the lowest quality.

 Healthy Planet Vitamins produces the purest whey protein to be found anywhere. Our products are biologically active, full-range non-denatured whey proteins, and they contain no sugar, low calories and no artificial flavors.

In fact, our purest whey protein products are unlike most other products on the market.  Other whey products, even the popular ones, are typically by-products of cheese, and they denature the vital immune and regenerative components.  Healthy Planet Vitamins Purest Whey Protein products are not by-products of cheese.  They contain the full range of the fragile immune modulating and regenerative protein components naturally present in fresh milk.  Additionally, they contain the full range and highest levels of the most important protein components: Lactoferrin, Immunoglobulins, Bovine Serum Albumin, Active Peptides and Growth Factors.  Our products are made in California in small batches to maintain quality and purity levels.

Healthy Planet Vitamins Purest Whey Protein is not only delicious and 100% natural, it is one of the few whey protein products you can consume as a real meal.

 Healthy Planet Vitamins protein products are ideal for anyone, big or small, young or old, male or female.
 

 5.     Why does Healthy Planet Vitamins also make Purest Glutamine product?

 Healthy Planet Vitamins Purest Glutamine is the second component of our protein nutrition system.  Glutamines are amino acids, and amino acids are the building blocks of protein.

 The most essential role Glutamine plays is in enhancing immune function.

Proper immune function is vital to health maintenance and disease prevention.  Glutamine is a major energy source for the immune system, and glutamine supplement, particularly Healthy Planet Vitamins Purest Glutamine, is essential in fighting all forms of cold and flu.  Glutamine is also a natural antioxidant, which neutralizes the free radical activity in the body.

Aside from immune system health, glutamine is essential for building lean muscle, weight loss, digestive health, and brain fuel.  Studies show that glutamine can significantly increase protein synthesis, leading to increased lean muscle growth.  Glutamine increases nitrogen retention and decreases muscle breakdown.  Further, Glutamine decreases recovery time following workouts.

Glutamine is a super-nutrient for digestive health and among the most important nutrients needed for a healthy digestive tract.  Glutamine is used as a natural way of assisting the body to break down bacteria in the body.  Glutamine is called "the intestinal permeability factor" due to its ability to maintain the integrity of the intestinal wall.

Glutamine is also excellent brain fuel, assisting in maintaining brain wellness as well as mental stamina.

Healthy Planet Vitamins Purest Glutamine is 100% natural and the purest quality glutamine to be found anywhere.


6.    
And the Purest Colostrum product?

Healthy Planet Vitamins Purest Colostrum is the third component of our protein nutrition system.

 Colostrum is commonly known as the first food for new life.  It is a natural immune system enhancer and is extremely beneficial to building physical and general strength.  Our body, when functioning normally, produces several regulating bio-proteins.  Due to aging, lifestyle choices and

environmental factors, various bodily functions cease to perform properly.

Colostrum counteracts this effect; it is a balancing nutrient that helps normalize, regulate, and maintain bodily functions at any age.  Colostrum also supports our body’s ability to heal after injury or disease.

 Healthy Planet Vitamins Purest Colostrum is 100% natural and the perfect complement to our Healthy Planet Vitamins Purest Whey Protein and Purest Glutamine products.

 How does Healthy Planet Vitamins purest proteins compare to other whey proteins?

Healthy Planet Vitamins produces Native* Whey Proteins. They are Biologically Active Full Range Non-denatured Whey Proteins. They are not by-products of cheese.

Most other whey products are by-products of cheese, as well as denature the vital immune and regenerative components. They are destroyed from the commercial processing they all undergo.

Healthy Planet Vitamins are one of the only native whey proteins available. They contain the full range of the fragile immune modulating and regenerative protein components naturally present in raw milk. They are the result of years of work resulting in producing only the highest quality native whey protein. These superior products contain the highest amounts of the glutathione precursor covalent bonded cysteine. Furthermore, they contain the full range, as well as highest levels of the most important protein components: Lactoferrin, Immunoglobulins, Bovine Serum Albumin, Active Peptides and Growth Factors. 


Healthy Planet Vitamins are one of the only Full Range Biologically Active Native Whey Proteins.


The Importance of Cysteine vs. Cystine

Healthy Planet Vitamins purest whey proteins contain exceptional levels of naturally occurring Cysteine. It is the optimal component for the intracellular production of Glutathione (GSH). Cysteine is very scarce in our modern diet and therefore Glutathione production is limited and deficiency is prevalent. If Cysteine undergoes any heating or processing, as all conventional dairy and dairy by-products do, it is denatured and converted to Cystine.

An important note on the synthesized free form amino acid L-cysteine, it can have adverse effects in supplemental doses with sensitive individuals or those who have any heavy metal accumulation.

Regarding Whey Protein Concentrate, The journal Immunology reports: The bioactivity occurs through the ability of the protein concentrate to help replenish Glutathione levels via continuous dietary provision of Glutathione precursors, especially Cysteine, during lymphocyte proliferation, thus supporting an optimal immune response. This process seems to not only increase intercellular levels of Glutathione and precursors at the time of ingestion, but also builds up stores of these substances within the cells which lasts for a substantial post-ingestion time interval.” Fidelus RK, Tsan MF. GSH and lymphocyte activation: a function of aging and autoimmune disease. Immunology 61: 503-508, 1987

* Native: of or relating to the naturally occurring conformation of a macromolecule, such as a protein. Constituting the original substance or source b: found in nature especially in an unadulterated form <conversion of a native protein to a denatured protein> —

* Native Protein: The concept of a protein in its natural state, in the cell, unaltered by heat, chemicals, enzyme action, or the exigencies (distress) of extraction.

** (Denature: To cause the tertiary structure of (a protein) to unfold, as with heat, alkali, or acid, so that some of its original properties, especially its biological activity, are diminished or eliminated.) It is not possible for a protein to be undenatured.

*** Analysis of protein as determined by an independent laboratory using the SDS PAGE Gel method. This is the industry accepted method to determine the actual biological activity of a milk protein.
