WHEY PROTEIN IN ASSISTING THE BODY TO HEAL WOUNDS
Protein is important as we have seen in many functions and processes in the body. When the body is injured and undergoes the healing process, it requires an increased amount of protein. Protein and its amino acids are the building blocks that are required in the growth of new skin to replace the damaged tissue. Inadequate amounts of protein or the use of lower quality proteins may delay the healing process.

The protein demand by the body is also increased due to requirements in the immune response, the inflammatory response and in the formation of what is known as Granulation tissue.

This is a connective tissue that replaces a fibrin clot in healing wounds. It develops ‘base-first’ to fill the wound and is the final stages of the healing. Whey Protein also contains a globular protein called Lactoferrin. Lactoferrin contains antimicrobial properties that assist the body’s immune system. One of the ways it does this is to block bacteria and viruses binding to host cells in the body.

Whey protein also contains components with protective anti-microbial properties, such as lactoferrin. In recent years companies have introduced mouthwashes and oral care products containing these protective whey protein components. The companies are taking advantage of the unique features of whey protein to create new products for diabetics and others sensitive to oral irritations. This area is expected to evolve in the future. .
