Alternavita Daily September 20, 2018© Milk Whey Protein Combats Iron Overload Oxidative Stress And DNA Damage Whey protein comprises 20 % of total milk protein and it is rich in branched and essential amino acids, functional peptides, antioxidants and immunoglobulins. It provides benefits against a wide range of metabolic diseases. Protein is the most satiating macronutrient and protein-rich diets are known to exert beneficial effects on body composition and metabolism. Increasing numbers of studies are reporting that the protein fraction in diet is insufficient, creating widespread PEM (Protein Energy Malnutrition). Protein deficiency is a major public health concern. Whey protein is globular protein its main components are  β-lactoglobulins (35–65 %) and α-lactalbulins (12–25 %). The minor ingredients include immunoglobulins […]

Alternavita Magazine© Sources/Tips Article Tips A serendipitous observation in the year 1995 that a casein fraction from human milk blocked the binding of bacteria to epithelial cell and was selectively toxic to a lung cancer cell line, evoked tremendous interest in the characterization of the tumoricidal molecule. The active fraction was soon traced to the casein fraction of human milk, obtained by acid precipitation and was subsequently identified as oleic acid (OA)-bound partially unfolded α-lactalbumin (α-LA). The complex was given the acronym HAMLET (Human αlactalbumin Made Lethal to Tumor cells). HAMLET exhibited broad tumoricidal activity against carcinomas, melanomas, glioblastomas and leukemias derived from human and various non-human sources. Other studies showed that HAMLET like complexes […]
