Bluebonnet's Multi-Action Whey of Life contains why protein isolate/concentrate, micellar casein and calcium caseinate sourced from grass-fed cows in New Zealand that are not treated with antibiotics or recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH), also known as bovine somatotropin (BST).‡ This dynamic multi-action protein formula was designed to handle the rigors of an active lifestyle by providing a perfect protein matrix of whey and casein and other supportive nutrients that work around the clock to maintain muscle mass, as well as general health and wellbeing.
Whey protein isolate/concentrate have the highest biological value (BV) of any protein on the market, which refers to a protein that has all the necessary essential amino acids for protein biosynthesis, and also provides naturally occurring immunoglobulins that help support the immune system. Most importantly, whey protein is fast-acting for immediate amino acid replenishment necessary for those individuals who can't seem to hold on to their muscle mass. Combined with long-action micellar casein and calcium caseinate, this revolutionary wellness protein formula provides a rich source of branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) and glutamic acid and works continuously to rebuild broken down muscle for faster/optimal muscle repair. It's especially well suited for seniors and those in recovery since they often suffer from muscle atrophy, low energy and/or oxidative stress.
Unlike the common practice of using heat-processed whey protein isolate/concentrate and micellar casein/calcium caseinate that can denature (render useless) the protein and immunoglobulins, Bluebonnet employs a special low-temperature method for all four proteins, which leaves the polypeptide chains (i.e., protein) and immunoglobulins intact.
Furthermore, this unique formula has both:
- Fast-acting whey protein for quick recovery and amino acid replenishment
- Long-acting casein for prolonged hours of repairing and rebuilding lean muscle
Bluebonnet's Multi-Action Whey of Life helps maintain optimal health for active men and women by providing unique standardized ingredients that function similarly to those active constituents found in whey and casein protein. Specifically, these complementary ingredients assist in:
- Reducing Oxidative Stress - (Vegetarian SOD/Gliadin [GliSODin], Fruit Polyphenols, Immunoglobulin, and Undenatured Whey Protein)
- Increasing Energy Production - (Undenatured Whey Protein, Micellar Casein and Calcium Caseinate, plus Nucleotides)
- Maintaining Lean Muscle - (Undenatured Whey Protein, Micellar Casein and Calcium Caseinate, Glutamine and Glutamine Peptides, and Nucleotides)
- Supporting Immune Function - (Undenatured Whey Protein, Micellar Casein and Calcium Caseinate, Glutamine and Glutamine Peptides, Immunoglobulins, Nucleotides and SOD/Gliadin [GliSODin])

iHerb Customer Reviews
I found this product to help the most with calming my anxiety and lessening depression. All around I just felt better. I did, however, have more headaches. I am not sure if that is directly related to this product or not.

Good for the glutathione…
Posted by HawaiianViking on Nov 08, 2012
Good for the glutathione … but sickeningly sweet. As other have noted, the chocolate taste is far from "blitz"-like, and is very subtle. Additionally, this product is far, far too sweet. A friend of mine who had some with me said that children might really like it, since it's just that sweet. Also, this in no way "mixes instantly", and you should mix it initially in your liquid of choice and then allow it to sit for several minutes to allow the powder to liquefy, unless you enjoy chewing your protein powder or having it stuck to your teeth. Because of the taste, I had to give mine away and order another, unflavored variety of un-denatured whey protein. I should note, however, that others that tasted this with me weren't crazy about the taste, but neither did they find it especially offensive.
Product is a excellent source of protein with great taste.

I really like the Bluebonnet products and this Whey protein tastes great with no artificial sweeteners!
Alzheimer's supplementation protocol we tried
Posted by Reviewer1307319 on Jul 26, 2011
A recent pilot study (P.Scheltens et al, Alzheimers & Dementia, (2010)1-10) looked at whether degeneration due to alzheimers is arrestable and the brain can build new synapses and dendrites. The study included the nucleotide uridine which enhances synaptic growth and was part of a protocol including other supplements. After 12 weeks there was clear improvement in memory in the alzheimers patients on the trial. We decided to try the protocol including this whey protein (which contains uridine) for my mother (age 79) who shows early signs of the illness. After six months can only say the change in memory function has been amazing - so we very much concur with the findings of the trial. I know studies are ongoing looking at the long term affect of supplementation - that'll take time - for us it is worth making this part of Mum's regime now - added bonus it's delicious too!
