Proteins from milk are the building blocks for a healthy lifestyle.
From bars to shakes to waters, there’s no shortage of ways to pump the benefits of proteins from milk into any lifestyle. And it goes far beyond just building lean muscle. Everybody can boost their wellness meter with help from proteins from milk. Whether you’re powering through housework, pumping up playtime or simply flexing your brain, proteins from milk deliver.
Proteins from milk help support muscle strength and function, to keep you stronger during the day.
Proteins such as whey proteins, caseins and others obtained from milk are shown to support daily exercise, which increases metabolism and contributes to longevity.
Research has shown that proteins from milk may:
- Help manage blood glucose1, 2
- Have a positive impact on blood pressure3
- Help protect your health and reduce cardiometabolic risk factors4,5
- Keep you strong and active as you age6,7
- Help promote a strong immune system8
- Protect the health of active individuals
