Ocean Avenue Shakes to Boost Your Immune System

Ocean Avenue Shakes for sale to lose weight and boost immune system
One of the reasons I have been so hooked on Ocean Avenue is the information I learned about the undenatured or cold processed whey they use. The very big distinction between heat-extracted whey {the proteins used in almost all of the meal replacement and recovery shakes on the market} and cold-extracted whey isolate becomes very apparent in a series of clinical studies conducted by researchers at McGill University in the 1980′s and then again in the 1990′s. I was really surprised by the stats on these tests because I never had seen them before. The tested to see which type of protein was best for stimulating immune function in mice. The tested casein, whey, soy, wheat, corn, egg white, fish, beef, spirulina and another algae called scenedesmus.

The first study completed in the 1980′s revealed that whey protein provided the best immune-boosting activity by increasing the amount of glutathione available to the spleen, which in turn resulted in an increase of white blood cells. Yet when they tried to duplicate the study in the 1990′s they could not replicate the same results. What they found was that whey can only boost glutathione when it is intact and undenatured by heath. The way that undenatured whey is processed is via low heat micro-filtration which partially replaces heat pasteurization. The whey is forced through ceramic micro-filters that trap virtually all microbial elements in the milk; yielding a microbial free safe product which sustains all fragile whey components. The raw milk is heated to 70˚C for a brief 15 seconds and then cooled down to 5˚C for the remaining processing. Regular Whey Concentrates are heated for long periods of time, and kills off the healthy enzymes and good bacteria in it. That's a big difference.

“What turned out to be the difference? Most of the products had undergone much more extensive heat treatment, causing two very delicate proteins, beta-lactoglobulin and serum albumin, to head for the highway. These two proteins contain unique glutamyl-cysteine bonds that resist digestion and enter the blood stream intact. The glutamyl-cysteine bond is two-thirds of a glutathione molecule , and thus much more easily turned into glutathione itself.” (Source: The Biochemical Magic of Raw Milk: Glutathione)

Ocean Avenue offers the Immunity Boosting cold-extracted whey isolates of health

Ocean Avenue has two great products with this cold-filtered, undenatured whey: Whey Beyond and Whey Smart. Whey Beyond is an amazing recovery shake with so many ways it's helping people. Here is an article about WheyBeyond and then also some of the clinical trial info that they've done with the product. http://www.biologicnr.com/whey-beyond-athletes/

If you are taking whey for the immunity boost,  or otherwise, you want what your body needs! And cold-extracted whey isolate guarantees the amount of protein per gram of whey that you are taking in. In a whey concentrate it can list 17 grams of whey concentrate on the label, but perhaps only 30% of that is actual protein, and you aren't get your money's worth if you are not getting that full 17 grams of protein. So even if the heat or acid-extracted whey isolate is much cheaper, to get the same results you will have to use a lot more.

Other benefits you'll see from using an undenatured/cold-extracted whey are:

  • Reduced Stress Hormones: Alpha-lactalbumin consumption enhances tryptophan and immune function and reduces the stress hormone cortisol. 
  • Boosted Serotonin Levels: The tryptophan is used by your brain to manufacture serotonin. This is important because serotonin deficiency plays a role in the development of depression, anxiety, moodiness and insomnia
  • Support pancreatic enzymes: Glycomacropeptides stimulate the hormone cholecystokinin, which is responsible for the release of pancreatic enzymes, as well as the healthy contraction of the gallbladder and bowels
  • Support a healthy gut: Lactoferrin is an antioxidant that is also a powerful antiviral and antibacterial agent shown to inhibit the growth of E.coli, salmonella and candida in the gut.
  • Prevent Oxidation: Lacotferrin also helps ensure the optimal use of iron in the body by binding to iron and preventing oxidation.
  • Alkalinize the body's PH: Whey protein is also an alkaline food. It is ideal for counteracting the usually hyper-acidic body pH levels, and keep the body from pulling calcium out of the bones which often causes osteoporosis issues later in life. It's amazing that this undenatured whey is activating osteoblasts and slowing down osteoporosis. With the problems I've seen in my mother, this is one of the most exciting parts for me. 
Ocean Avenue shakes support immunity in women and men paleo crossfitI'm also excited about what the Ocean Avenue WheySmart offers to my girlfriends. Here is some of the info that is more women specific

I work with a lot of women with adrenal fatigue and have quite a few customers with fibro and CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) which are very similar. This sort of whey that Ocean Avenue is using is specific to what they are finding is the best for fibro and CFS. One thing that I've learned by researching this product is that most of those people with these two illnesses have a glutathione deficiency. The leading doctor in this research says, "Glutathione deficiency has two major implications: detox failure and viral/microbial activation. Glutathione plays a major role in detoxification pathways. This deficiency impairs the body's ability to get rid of toxins, whether environmental or by-products of cellular metabolism. CFS patients slowly become toxic, storing away poisons in fatty tissue, muscles, organs and the brain. This cellular detox failure can make CFS patients "canaries to their environment" and they'll get sick very easily if their glutathione deficiency is not first addressed and fixed.  

And also in a clinical study, patients with hypertension were given 10g chlorella tablets and 100 mL chlorella extract for two months. Patients were taken off all blood pressure medications, then treated with chlorella. One-fourth of the patients saw a decrease in blood pressure after taking chlorella for two months. The other three-fourths did not see a rise in blood pressure, despite being taken off their blood pressure medication. The research I've seen also says that the cracked chlorella is fine to take while pregnant and if you take it while breastfeeding it cleanses toxins from the milk, and then those toxins/heavy metals are excreted via bowels, not your baby's breast milk.

Women suffer a lot from migraines. Kelp in cases of migraine, is an arterial cleansing agent and gives tone to the walls of the blood vessels. It is helpful in some cases of arterial tension (high blood pressure). So it tends to relieve some of the arterial issues that are often associated with migraines. Also kelp is very anti-inflammatory and helps a lot with arthritis, and inflammation and migraines seem to hand in hand. In recent years they have stopped focusing so much on the arterial causes for migraines, and are instead looking at the inflammation associated with it. So that would be a big help as far as I'm concerned, intracellular Glutathione fights inflammation and preserves cell health. It also works to improve cognitive function, improve circulation, increase energy, and low glutathione levels are linked to migraines as well as a long list of other diseases. Even the flax seed has multiple compounds that may help relieve migraine headaches symptoms.

  1. "And also in a clinical study, patients with hypertension were given 10g chlorella tablets and 100 mL chlorella extract for two months." - I guess this should all be given to people who want to experience good method of detoxification. I personally experience the goodness of chlorella. It is really effective in my detoxification process.
