Changes in Antioxidant Levels w/ Supplementation of Whey Protein

This study shows an increase in antioxidant levels and a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease in those who resistance train and supplement with whey protein.

So what about supplementing with Whey changes antioxidant levels? 11-11-2012 5:17pm

It is hypothesized that the high levels of cysteine found in whey protein (isolated milk protein) contributes to an increase in the body's production of intracellular Glutathione (GSH), one of the most important antioxidants.

This study shows that after 6-weeks of resistance training and supplementing with whey protein, the participants had greater increases in their antioxidant levels (e.g. GSH, and Ascorbate) than compared to those in the control and resistance training + placebo groups. 11-21-2012 7:07am

Nice and succinct.  Is there anything else we could consume that has similar cysteine levels?  Eggs?  Tuna?  Just asking? 11-21-2012 10:10am
