We are learning that whey protein should be a part of our healthy eating tips for many different reasons.
Today’s reason has to do with your heart.
A recent study conducted in Australia looked at overweight men and women that were placed on a 12 week diet of whey protein isolate.
What they found was that the participants following the healthy tip of eating whey protein isolate reduced several heart disease risk factors.
Some of those risk factors that were reduced were fasting triglycerides, lower insulin levels and lower LDL (bad) cholesterol. This was compared to subjects who ingested casein protein or neither protein.
What they also found was that whey protein as part of their healthy eating guidelines reduced systolic and diastolic blood pressure as well as decreased artery stiffness.
This is just one of many benefits of including whey protein isolate in your healthy diet plans.
