Yes, it’s true. A study published earlier this month in the Journal of Nutrition found that supplementation with whey protein powder for 12 weeks in overweight individuals significantly decreased LDL (the bad cholesterol), total cholesterol and triglycerides (fat). In addition, whey protein also decreased insulin levels. Cool! Another reason to start the day with a tasty protein shake!

To find out more, contact a licensed naturopathic doctor. They can put together an individualized treatment program to help lower cholesterol and improve weight management.

Yours in health,
