ECO proteins (Grass-Fed) are top-quality supplements. Their production uses milk from cows that live in a natural environment. These animals roam freely on green pastures and feed on fresh grass. In contrast to cows from mass husbandries, they are not fed with genetically modified feed, they do not receive hormones or antibiotics. Milk from cows grazing on the grass is much healthier and has a much higher biological value to the milk that comes from animals from mass husbandries. This automatically results in the high quality of the products derived from it.
Whey protein derived from good quality milk in addition to amino acids contains valuable protein subfractions, such as immunoglobulins, α-lactalbumin, β-lactoglobulin, and smaller peptides – lactoperoxidase, lysozyme, lactoferrin. They exhibit unique biological properties. They are credited for antioxidant, antibacterial effects; they favorably affect immunity, promote cholesterol reduction.
The supplements in this category are ideal for physically active people. They provide the possibility to enrich the diet with wholesome proteins in an easy and simple way and secure the supply of all important amino acids. Providing the basic building blocks for muscles, they significantly facilitate the development of muscles and accelerate the rate of post-workout regeneration.
ECO proteins can be successfully introduced into the diet of people during convalescence. Recently, it is more and more common to say that high-quality protein supplements may also be helpful for the elderly and are an effective agent in the fight against age-related sarcopenia.
