Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) ON “UNDENATURED WHEY PROTEIN ISOLATE”
1. What is THIS PRODUCT?
A. this product is not a prescription drug, but a powerful and unique patented (8 Method of Use Patents worldwide, and 5 US Patents) un-denatured
and highly bio-active whey protein dietary supplement that is loaded with glutathione precursors, this product took $10 million and 18 years of
research to perfect. The primary researcher involved in the discovery of this product is Gustavo Bounous, MD.
this product is a highly concentrated milk serum isolate which is high in protein (90% protein by weight) and is lactose-free and fat-free, this
product shares many of the same immune promoting and enhancing properties of Mother's milk, this product has been clinically proven to increase serum
and tissue glutathione levels, and its efficacy is validated by extensive research, including over 390 published scientific studies and review
articles which appear in the medical literature and are available for you to examine through our MEDLINE (National Library of medicine) link.
This product increases glutathione, which is your cells' own natural antioxidant and most potent detoxifier. this product has been demonstrated to
enhance both healthy and deficient immune systems, and is validated as an effective nutritional supplement by the medical community, this product is
the only non-prescription dietary supplement to appear in the year 2000 Physician's Desk Reference (PDR) for Prescription Drugs, although it is
available without prescription! It has it's own NDC (National Drug Control) number, and is reimbursable under Medicaid, Medicare, and by private
insurance in many states.
2. Is this product approved by the FDA for the treatment of cancer, chronic fatigue, auto-immune, and glutathione deficiency diseases?
A. No. The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not "approve" any nutritional supplements for these indications. The FDA
determines the safety of nutritional supplements, and regulates or restricts the distribution of those products considered to pose a health risk to
the American public, this product is considered to be "generally recognized as Safe", (GRAS) by the FDA. This is the same classification given
vitamin C. Based on a recent decision by the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, the FDA is tolerating references to certain
therapeutic uses of nutritional supplements which are based on strong scientific or clinical evidence and "significant scientific agreement".
Because this product is manufactured by a Canadian company, the manufacturer is more sensitive to the regulatory pressures of the FDA than American
supplement manufacturers, and has chosen to be ultra-conservative in their marketing of the product. No disease treatment claims are made concerning
3. What is the difference between this product and other whey proteins?
A. this product has been shown to differ from other whey proteins in its effect upon the immune system. Specifically, scientific studies on other whey
proteins have not shown the same immune stimulating effects that are seen with this product. this_product is has been extensively studied in the
clinical literature. Comparing the bio-active ingredients in this product to those in other whey proteins clearly shows the superiority of this
product, this product is a bioactive dietary supplement that is supported by eighteen years of research through rigorous clinical trials that have
been published in peer review journals. These studies, performed in world-renowned medical and scientific institutions, attest to the efficacy of this
product, this product studies have shown that this product not only increases intracellular levels of GSH (glutathione or glutathione precursors)
following ingestion, but also significantly builds up the stores of these substances inside the cells. This beneficial effect lasts for considerable
periods of time after ingestion of this product.
4. What is the product's bioactivity dependent upon?
A. Concentrations of 3 bioactive and thermolabile (easily damaged by heat) proteins that are contained in the milk serum: serum albumin, alpha
lactalbumin and lactoferrin. Because these compounds can be damaged by heat (in excess of 140 degrees F) or excessive mechanical agitation, this
product must not be cooked, heated, or placed in a steel-bladed blender. For these reasons, and to preserve the bioactivity of its serum albumin,
alpha lactalbumin and lactoferrin, this product has not been exposed to standard high-temperature Pasteurization. Rather, it has been bio-filtered to
remove bacteria, and subjected to patent-process low-temperature purification procedures to ensure its safety and purity.
5. If a different manufacturer of whey protein supplements was able to duplicate our technology, could they make the same claims? A. No. The power of
our patents is not in manufacturing, this product patents (presently there are eight patents on this product: 5 US patents, and 3 international
patents) relate to the METHOD OF USE. That is, no other whey protein can state: "clinically PROVEN to stimulate the immune system", and
"significantly raises glutathione levels". Additionally,
although there are dozens of companies producing denatured (high-heat Pasteurized) whey proteins (primarily for use as a protein source in
body-building), there currently is no company manufacturing an UNDENATURED whey protein product similar to this_product. Over 390 clinical studies and
medical reviews appear in the clinical literature which specifically involved this product, and not other whey proteins. Accept no imitations.
6. What exactly is glutathione and how is it important?
A. Glutathione is the master antioxidant of the body. Without glutathione, we die. The replenishment of the glutathione levels within the lymphocytes
(also called leucocytes or white blood cells) increases the intensity of the immune response. The increase in glutathione levels also results in the
proliferation of lymphocytes that act as a scavengers, and helps to combat infections. Selenium (a micronutrient and mineral) is a structural
component of, and a co-factor for the antioxidant enzyme glutathione peroxidase. For this reason, supplementation with selenium can modestly increase
glutathione levels in persons who are selenium deficient.
Glutathione is a tri-peptide of the amino acids cysteine, glycine, and glutamic acid. Tissue glutathione levels increase when cystine levels increase
within the cell. This is why cystine is critical in the production of glutathione, but prior to the development of this product, no effective way was
known to safely and significantly increase cystine levels in the cell over long periods of time. A deficiency of glutathione can cause hemolysis (the
destruction of red blood cells resulting in severe anemia) and numerous diseases of oxidative stress.
Low glutathione levels are commonly found among the elderly, those undergoing cancer chemotherapy, and among patients suffering from autoimmune and
immune deficiency diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFSIDS), fibromyalgia, and AIDS. Glutathione is essential in
intermediary metabolism as a donor of sulfhydryl groups (which are essential for the detoxification of the liver). That is why the only known "side
effects" associated with this product supplementation are associated with the beneficial detoxification which occurs as a result of improved liver
function. The antioxidant enzyme glutathione peroxidase functions in the process of elimination of wastes from the body. Glutathione works within the
liver, lungs, colon, kidneys, and skin in the process of removing toxic eliminating cellular metabolic wastes.
7. What is the difference between products or pills that people use as supplements that are labeled as "glutathione" or "cystine"?
A. Glutathione is produced within the cells (intra-cellularly). When taking a pill labeled "glutathione", dinical and laboratory studies demonstrate
that oral glutathione is NOT absorbed but will be eliminated by the liver through the bile before ever reaching the systemic circulation (blood
stream). Cystine is not well absorbed when taken by mouth. Injectable glutathione also has limited benefits. It is unstable in the blood stream. By
the time it gets to the cell, much of it gets degraded, and much of this remaining glutathione cannot effectively pass through the cell membrane.
Clinical studies have demonstrated that oral cystine supplementation (NAC or N Acetyl L-Cysteine) is NOT effective in increasing cystine levels within
the cell, and has also not been associated with significant increases in glutathione levels within the cell. The three bioactive proteins supplied by
this product constitute a "natural delivery system" from these cystine precursors to the cell (in order to facilitate clinically and statistically
significant increases in glutathione levels in BOTH the extracellular serum and intracellular tissues). Because this product provides the building
blocks for cystine, and these building blocks for cystine are easily transported inside the cell where they can be quickly synthesized into
glutathione, this product is therefore ideally suited to increase glutathione levels within the cell.
8. What is the difference between NAC (N Acetyl L-Cysteine) and this product? A. N Acetyl L-Cysteine (NAC) is sulfur-containing (sulfhydryl) amino
acid which is present in many proteins, and is in the same class as the amino add methionine. NAC is a naturally occurring amino sugar and is a form
of cysteine which has been demonstrated to facilitate the SHORT TERM cellular detoxification of alcohol, tobacco smoke, acetaminophen [Tylenol®]
poisoning and environmental pollutants in several in vitro studies. When Cystine is heated, molecular bonds are cleaved and it becomes Cysteine.
Cysteine is beneficial if it is produced INSIDE the cell, but is mildly toxic if it is produced outside the cell. NAC does not travel well in the
blood stream, and doesn't reach the cells (to be used to synthesize glutathione and Glutamic add).
NAC supplementation over long periods has been associated with modest increases in serum glutathione, but has not proven particularly useful in the
treatment of chronic, long-term intracellular glutathione deficiendes. Furthermore, therapeutic levels of NAC are relatively toxic and have been
associated with significant side effects. At therapeutic doses, oral NAC supplementation has been associated with cerebral symptoms, nausea, blurred
vision, and vomiting, this product provides the precursors for the manufacture of intra-cellular cystine, and effectively delivers these to the cell.
For this reason, this product supplementation has been associated with sustained and significant
increases of cellular glutathione, and is virtually devoid of troublesome side-effects, this product has the same side-effect profile as mothers'
9. What is the difference between bovine colostrum and this product?
A. The proteins in colostrum have almost no cystine content. Cystine is critically essential to the immune system. Although Growth Factors present in
colostrum (including IGF-1, or Insulin-like growth Factor-1 which is effective in promoting muscle growth) are not affected by stomach acid, research
published by one manufacturer of Colostrum (Vital Health News, Winter 1998, page 7) demonstrated that "the effectiveness of the immune factors
present in colostrum is lowered by stomach acid."
Although the immune enhancing factors found in colostrum are often "preferable to single isolated immune components" (such as interferon, which is
more likely to cause troublesome side effects), colostrum has NOT been demonstrated to be superior to isolated undenatured whey proteins such as this
product. Colostrum (which is produced during the first 26 hours following birth by the mammary glands) is primarily composed of immunoglobulin and
some lactoferrin. According to both laboratory experiments and clinical trials conducted in Germany, although colostrum supplementation was associated
with mild increases in immune function in some patients, these increases were not statistically significant, (p=ns).
A postulated mechanism of action of colostrum is the inter-species transfer of immune factors, however this has NOT been clinically proven. Most of
the data supporting the effectiveness of colostrum is anecdotal (consisting mostly of personal testimonies rather than clinical studies). Since the
primary mechanism of action on the immune system is via stimulation of the synthesis (production) of glutathione, the near absence of glutathione
precursors in the immunoglobulin fraction (from the colostrum) may explain its relative lack of effect.
Conversely, this product contains substantial amounts of thermolabite (heat-sensitive) proteins that are rich in cystine and glutamyicystine (known
precursors of glutathione), and the effectiveness of this product has been demonstrated in numerous human clinical trials which found statistically
significant increases in glutathione and indices of immune function (such as CD4:CD8 ratios). Colostrum might be beneficial as an adjunctive (add-on)
therapy to this product, but the clinical data is significantly more convincing for this product.
10. How does the manufacturing of our product differ from other whey proteins?
A, In the manufacturing of other whey proteins several things occur: in the process of heating and Pasteurization, critical bonds holding the cystine
together get broken down ("denatured", meaning they loose their original nature-similar to the denaturing and irreversible changing of liquid egg
white by the heating process involved in frying an egg). The exact type of proteins that serve to increase tissue and serum glutathione most
effectively are lost or diminished. The researchers (the manufacturers of this product) have developed a process by which these delicate proteins
remain intact in their natural form to serve us most effectively.
11. What are some additional benefits of whey proteins?
A. this product has been clinically demonstrated to increase exercise capacity by 13 percent (Lands et al., 1999), and may be useful as a supplement
for competitive athletes. IVaffanabe ef al. (Japan) conducted a clinical study with this product to evaluate increases in GSH among patients with
Hepatitis 6 and C, and found that these viruses are vulnerable to glutathione. In-vitro studies in Japan also showed that whey can stimulate the bone
cell (osteoblasts) to produce more bone, hence increasing bone density and reducing the risk of osteoporosis. Lactalbumin from whey protein has been
demonstrated to kill breast cancer cells in vitro (in a test-tube). Glutathione (from whey protein) lowers serum cholesterol by stimulating bile
synthesis in the liver. In addition, glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that will prevent lipid peroxidation (a sign of free radical activity).
Lipid peroxidation is implicated in arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), stroke and coronary artery disease.
12. What is the theoretical mechanism of action of GLUTATHIONE in Cancer and Immune dysfunction?
A. Natural killer (Immune) cells may become glutathione-depleted over time, and immune response weakens. THIS PRODUCT raises glutathione levels and
strengthens the immune system to fight cancer, viruses, bacteria, etc. For those patients receiving traditional medical therapy for their cancers,
THIS PRODUCT supplies lactalbumin and has been clinically proven to raise glutathione levels. Glutathione and lactalbumin (a component of THIS
PRODUCT) have been associated with the strengthening of healthy cells and (paradoxically) the weakening of cancerous cells. In research conducted by
C. Svanborg et al, lactalbumin was associated with apoptosis (or the programmed death) of breast cancer cells. Glutathione has been scientifically
demonstrated to decrease cancerous cells' resistance to chemotherapeutic drugs, while protecting healthy cells. This would theoretically allow a
patient to respond better to chemotherapy with less side effects.
. 13. What are the diseases or conditions that have been associated with low glutathione levels?
. Most of the autoimmune and degenerative diseases of aging including: Acetaminophen poisoning, ADD, Addison's Disease, aging, AIDS, Alopecia
Areata, ALS, Alzheimers, Disease, anemia (hemolytic), Ankylosing Spondylitis,Arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), arthritis (rheumatoid),
asthma, autism, autoimmune disease, Behcet's Disease, bums, cacexia, cancer, Candida infection, cardiomyopathy (idiopathic), Chronic Fatigue
Syndrome, colitis, coronary artery disease, cystic fibrosis, diabetes, Crohn's disease, eczema, emphysema, Epstein Barr Viral (EBV) syndrome,
fibromyalgia, free radical overload, Goodpasture Syndrome, Graves' Disease, hepatic dysfunction (liver disease), hepatitis B, hepatitis C,
hypercholesterolemia (high blood cholesterol), herpes, infections (viral, bacterial and fungal), inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), lupus, macular
degeneration (diabetic macular degeneration), malnutrition, Meniere's disease, multiple sclerosis, Myasthenia Gravis, neurodegenerative diseases,
nutritional disorders, Parkinson's disease, Pemphigus Vulgaris, Primary Biliary Cirrhosis, progeria, psoriasis, Rheumatic Fever, Sarcoidosis,
scteroderma, shingles, stroke, surgery, toxic poisoning, trauma, vasculitis, vitiligo, and Wegener's Granulomatosis.
14. Has therapy to increase glutathione levels been effective in treating
the diseases or conditions that have been associated with low glutathione levels?
A. Yes. See: Medline Search Page
15. Can a person who is lactose intolerant take this product?
A. Yes, this product has less than 1% lactose which should not cause any ill effect even in the most severe
case of lactose intolerance.
16. Can a person who is intolerant of Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) take this product?
A. Yes, this_product has NO added MSG which should not cause any ill effect even in the most severe case of MSG intolerance, this product contains the
following amount of glutamic acid by weight: 180 mg/gram. There is therefore 1.8 grams of glutamic acid in a 10 gram packet of this product. Every
single protein on the earth contains glutamic add, and glutamic acid is required for good health. Glutamic acid is an amino acid formed in the
digestion of ALL proteins (including wheat gluten and meat). It is the only amino acid metabolized by the brain. Glutamic acid is necessary in human
nutrition but can usually be manufactured by the body in adequate amounts. That means that our own body produces it. In certain disease states,
deficient diet, malnutrition, and in certain metabolic abnormalities this amino acid becomes conditionally essential. Glutamic Acid's sodium salt, is
monosodium glutamate, and ALL proteins may contain naturally occurring trace amounts of MSG. In summary, this product would not supply any more
glutamic acid than a serving of steak or other similar protein. There is NO added MSG in this product, and this product should not cause a medical
problem in a person highly sensitive to MSG.
17 .Are there any interactions known between supplements such as coenzy me Q-10, antioxidant vitamins, or herbs and this product?
A. No, there are no known potential or reported interactions between this product and nutritional supplements. In fact, this product increases
glutathione levels, which helps to improve the action of antioxidant vitamins (which are less effective if your glutathione levels are impaired). For
this reason, mega-doses of antioxidant vitamins (i.e. doses in excess of 10 times the RDA of these vitamins) are not required if you are supplementing
with this product. As we age, our glutathione levels fall precipitously like a down-hill ski-slope. Low levels of glutathione are associated with a
host of degenerative diseases, and critically low levels of serum and tissue glutathione often predict that death is imminent. Supplementation with
this product helps restore these precious glutathione levels, and helps the supplemental vitamins we are taking to work more effectively to maintain
18. Are there any interactions known between prescription medications and this product?
A. No, there are no known interactions between this product and prescription drugs, this product is composed of the same basic proteins which are
found in human breast milk, and should be considered to be as safe to take as mothers' breast milk. Furthermore, this product is 90% protein, and is
one of the best sources of highly-absorbable protein on the planet. Patients taking immunosuppressant drugs such as Cyclosporin® should consult their
physician before taking this product.
19. Are there any side effects associated with this product?
A. thjs product increases serum and liver glutathione levels. When liver glutathione levels rise, the liver is able to more effectively detoxify the
body (which is a beneficial function of this product. Some patients (especially those who have been exposed to high levels of environmental toxins)
may have a mild temporary reaction to these mobilized toxins as the liver is removing them from storage in body fat. Typically, reducing the dose of
this product will allow these temporary side effects to quickly disappear, this product is composed of the same basic proteins that are found in human
breast milk, and has the same side effect profile as mothers' breast milk. Because this product is a milk protein, persons who are mildly allergic to
milk proteins may experience minor gastric distress from thjs product. This gastric distress usually disappears if you reduce the dose of this
product. Persons with serious milk-protein allergies should not take this product
20. Can you overdose this product? Is there any potential for toxicity if you take too much?
A. Your greatest risk is wasting your money if you take "too much" this product. Clinical data seems to indicate there is limited benefit from
exceeding 30 grams per day (3 scoops per day) of this product. Because our cells have an innate mechanism of "feed-back inhibition" with respect to
the glutathione synthesis precursors (building blocks) provided by this product, there is no potential for making "too much glutathione" within the
cell if large quantities of this product are consumed, this product supplementation will result in establishment of normal glutathione levels, (NOT
excessive glutathione levels) within the cell. Excess this product would be metabolized as protein (this product is an excellent source of protein,
containing 90% protein by dry weight).
21. Because this product is 90% protein, is it contraindicated in patients on renal dialysis who must limit protein intake?
A. No, this product is not contraindicated in these patients. Although we suggest that you consult your personal physician with medical questions such
as these, there is no reason to believe that this product would be harmful in these patients, this product is one of the most easily digested and most
easily absorbed forms of protein in the diet. Its Protein Efficiency Ratio (PER: a mark of the quality of a protein) is extremely high, and in
conditions such as renal failure where protein intake must be limited, it is most prudent to consume the highest quality proteins such as whey
proteins and egg white proteins, versus lower quality proteins that produce more problematic metabolic waste by-products and residues.
22. Is this product contraindicated in Celiac Sprue disease?
A. No. These patients are usually instructed not ingest wheat or gluten. There is no wheat, or gluten in this product. Furthermore, this product is
lactose-free. There is no reason to believe that that this product would be detrimental in patients with Celiac Sprue.
23. Who should not take the product?
A. People with an allergy specifically to milk protein, (which is very rare). NOTE: Please understand that lactose intolerance is NOT a milk allergy.
Also, anyone who has had an organ transplant and is receiving immunosuppressant therapy should not take thjs product unless instructed to do so by his
or her physician or another health care professional. The immune system needs to be suppressed in order to prevent organ rejection, and this product
may counteract immunosuppressant medicines such as cyclosporin®.
24. What are some of the critical ingredients in a daily amount of this product (1 pouch)?
A. 9 grams or 90% Protein, 0 Fat, less than 0% Lactose, 60 mg of Calcium, 4 micrograms of Selenium, 30 Mg of Potassium, 4 mg of Iron, and
approximately 40 Calories.
25. What is the recommended dose for taking this product?
A. Check with your physician or health care professional. If you do not have a documented glutathione deficiency and are taking this product for good
health, one pack per day is not unreasonable. Generally, most studies conducted using this product in patients with glutathione deficiencies used at
least 20 grams per day (2 pouches), and some studies showed increased effectiveness using up to 30 grams (3 pouches) per day. Most of our customers
use 2 boxes per month (this provides 2 pouches, or 20 grams per day per month).
26. What is the difference in taking this product as opposed to taking other antioxidants?
A. Vitamin E and C are important antioxidants, and you should consider these important supplements in your diet, this product is not an antioxidant
per se, but provides the building blocks for the synthesis of glutathione, which is THE principle intra-cellular antioxidant. Glutathione is the most
potent cellular antioxidant known to man, and is hundreds of times more potent than vitamin C or vitamin E. For this reason, glutathione has been
called the "Super Antioxidant". By raising the glutathione level within our bodies we provide for the optimum functioning of other lesser
antioxidants such as vitamins C and E. More importantly, glutathione serves as a detoxifying agent for multiple toxins that we encounter on a daily
basis through the environment and medications we are exposed to. Glutathione has been demonstrated to act as an effective protectant against
ultraviolet radiation, which is important in view of the continued loss of the ozone layer. Click here to read the arUcIe_!!Fmm_Gel! to Super-Cell -
27. Is there a test to determine If my glutathione levels are low?
A. Yes. Check with your Doctor
.28. Is this product listed in the Physicians Desk Reference (PDR)?
A. Yes. this product is the ONLY nutritional product sold by direct sales to be listed in the prestigious PDR, which is also frequently called the
"physician's bible", and is owned and consulted by virtually every physician in the USA and world-wide! Physicians have relied on the PDR for
up-to-date information on prescription drugs for over 50 years. The PDR is considered the standard prescription drug reference and is found in
virtually every physician's office. Although this product does NOT require a prescription, this product's inclusion in the PDR is a result of our
recognition by the medical community, of the extensive clinical data supporting this product's effectiveness, and as a result of our recognition by
Medicare and Medicaid as a reimbursable medical treatment. The publisher of the PDR, Medical Economics, also produces a smaller companion volume for
non-prescription drugs and herbal medicines. This volume may contain references to
our competitors. ONLY this product is listed in the PDR. this product meets the coding
determination for coverage by Medicaid. Medicare, and many private insurance programs.
