Whey Protein Isolate vs Concentrate
How do Vital Whey® and ImmunoPro® compare to other whey proteins?
Proserum® is the most potent native whey protein® available:
- Contains the original full range of biological activity
- Minimally processed to best maintain the fragile immune-modulating and regenerative components naturally present in fresh raw milk
- The result of years of work to perfect a system that produces only the highest quality natural whey protein®
- The milk is derived from cows that are grass fed and graze year-round on natural pastures. It is GMO free, hormone treatment free, pesticide and chemical free and undergoes minimal processing.
- The highest quality whey protein concentrate
The vast majority of whey protein is from grain fed cows, which has been shown to be of inferior quality to grass fed cows. Grass fed cows have 3 times the amount of omega 3 fatty acids, and is also a rich source of CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid). When cows are allowed to graze on fresh pastures alone their milk contains 3 to 5 times more CLA than products from cows fed grain. Proserum whey protein is derived from cows that graze year-round on chemical and pesticide free natural pastures.
Proserum® Undenatured Whey Protein
Proserum® utilizes a proprietary filtration and drying method that involves a minimal amount of processing. The result is a microbial safe product that exceeds all standards and makes it the optimum nutrition whey protein powder. We DO NOT use cross-flow filtration, microfiltration, isolate filtration, hydrolyzation or ion exchange because these methods denature (damage) the original protein components. After use of these commercial methods, the damaged proteins are then filtered out and what remains is a narrow range of “undenatured” proteins that have survived the whey manufacturing process. Additionally the vital protein-bound fats have been removed. Some of these whey protein products are then referred to as undenatured/cold processed. It is not possible to undenature or restore the full biological activity of a protein after it has been damaged.
When considering a whey product ask for a lab analysis of the whey showing actual percentages of components present from the distributor/manufacturer. You should not receive a range of percentages as that denotes it is not from an actual test. Test results on our products are from an independent lab that performs SDS PAGE Gel method testing. Here are test results for our Proserum Whey protein.
The Importance of Cysteine
Proserum whey protein contains exceptional levels of naturally occurring Cysteine (covalent bonded 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. This makes Proserum one of the best whey protein products available on the market today.
The Case For Whey Protein Concentrate: The Journal Immunology Reports
The bioactivity occurs through the ability of the protein concentrate to help replenish Glutathione levels. It is accomplished 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 inter-cellular 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.

Whey Protein Concentrate vs Isolate
Our product is a whey protein concentrate, since this has been shown to retain components that strengthen the immune system. Specifically, it contains the full range and highest levels of the most important protein components: Lactoferrin, Immunoglobulins, Serum Albumin, Active Peptides and Growth Factors making it the optimum nutrition protein powder to support proper immune function. So, when you perform a whey protein comparison there are good reasons to select Well Wisdom’s Vital Whey® and ImmunoPro® products.
