The best way to mix whey protein powder for glutathione supplementation

Whey protein powder is considered the best long-term supply of the amino acid cysteine ​​for glutathione supplementation purposes.

But if you blend whey powder in a blender at high speed, the protein structure is disrupted. This ability to extract cysteine ​​is probably reduced. This is because the cysteine ​​in whey is in the form of cystine, which is sort of a double cyteine ​​molecule. This high cystine content is what gives whey protein its unique ability to increase glutathione. But cystine is easily degraded by vigorous mechanical action such as mixing in a high-speed blender.

So how do you get that creamy, lump-free milkshake texture without vigorous blending? It just takes extra time, that’s all. Measure an appropriate amount of powder into a 12 oz. cup or cup. Fill about halfway with skim milk. (You can use almost any drink, but whey has a mild milky taste. Personally, I don’t care much for it when mixed with orange juice.)

Mix gently with a fork. Scrape the bottom and sides to hydrate all the powder. Let set for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally every 5 to 10 minutes. After 20 minutes, fill the rest of the way.

Any lumps will swell and disperse during this time. At the end of 20 minutes there may be a few small lumps on the surface. If you are very picky, you can pick them up with the tip of a spoon. I usually keep the cup in the fridge during this time, just because the cat seems to be very interested in these treatments and I don’t want to leave the cup outside, unattended, while I go out and do other things for the 20 minutes.
