AOR Advanced Whey is an advanced whey protein formulation, high in alpha-lactalbuminand bioactive peptide subfractions such as lactoferrin. AOR Advanced Whey starts with a new high-concentration cross-flow microfiltered whey (not an ion-exchange whey), to maximize protein content and minimize unnecessary carbohydrate and saturated fat while retaining all bioactive peptide subfractions. This is then enhanced with an ultra-high alpha-lactalbumin whey protein isolate, bringing the alpha-lactalbumin content to 30% of total protein content – a ratio reflecting what is found in human breast milk. Alpha-lactalbumin has a higher net protein utilization (NPU) than conventional whey proteins, allowing greater support for anabolic metabolism, and is less allergenic than the beta-lactalbumin which predominates in conventional whey. Advanced Whey is also enriched inlactoferrin, a high-affinity iron-binding protein concentrated in bodily fluids. Lactoferrin supports immune function through several mechanisms ; direct antimicrobial action, the denial of access to free iron necessary for microbial growth, the blocking of cellular receptors vulnerable to exploitation by some viruses, and the enhancement of the activity and/or effectiveness of immune cells such asmacrophages, neutrophils, lymphocytes, and polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMN). Lactoferrin levels increase naturally after intense bouts of physical activity. This response enhances the immune system, which can be weakened by rigorous exercise. The low temperature, filtration-based processing techniques used in these materials allow the whey proteins to be extracted without the use of phosphoric acid, sodium hydroxide, or large pH excursions, resulting in an absolute minimization of protein denaturation.

The use and popularity of whey protein has grown to such an extent since the mid-1990's that it is now found in everything from general meal-replacements to infant formulas for newborns. No longer relegated to the exclusive domain of the blender, whey protein is now almost effortlessly added to cereals, yogurts, and even breads and pastries. Such widespread applications speak volumes about the unlocked potential of whey protein. Scientists speculated - correctly as it turned out - that any macronutrient that has earned such widespread acceptance has more secrets to yield. Companies such as AOR have taken the initiative to unlock these secrets, and Advanced Whey represents the fruition of those efforts.

A long way from curds and whey...
The origin of whey protein is found in the first phase of the manufacturing process of cottage cheese, namely the ‘curdling phase'. This is when bovine milk is separated into curd and whey, (the solid part and the liquid part respectively). The liquid part, namely the whey, is then dried and powdered. More scrupulous manufacturers are certain to use freeze-drying and ion-exchange cross-filtering in the drying and powdering process to ensure the survival of the maximum number of micronutrients - as opposed to the macronutrients, namely protein, carbohydrates and fat, with protein constituting approximately 90% of whey. It is within this predominant macronutrient fraction that most of whey's micronutrient fractions are to be found. The three fractions with the most important health benefits are alpha-lactalbumin, lactoferrin and sialic acid.

Alpha-Lactalbumin
Alpha-lactalbumin has been associated with anti-carcinogenic and anti-microbial activity. In fact, researchers in Sweden conducted a study whereupon a strain of human milk protein consisting largely of alpha-lactalbumin was able to induce apoptosis (programmed cellular death) of cancer cells while leaving healthy cells intact. These same researchers have further isolated the co-factors required by the process from which alpha-lactalbumin converts from its native state to the anti-tumourous folding variant now identified as HAMLET (human alpha-lactalbumin made lethal to tumour cells). Furthermore, on a more prevalent level, several clinical studies have determined that bovine alpha-lactalbumin is highly effective at reducing stress. The mechanism of action behind this extraordinary claim is that it raises brain serotonin activity while simultaneously reducing cortisol levels. This opens the potential use of alpha-lactalbumin as a sleep aid, and its cortisol-reducing ability makes it a useful addition to the supplement protocol of anyone dealing with stress. Alpha-lactalbumin has also been studied for its influence on longevity, and in-vivo research among laboratory animals has indicated that it has a dose-dependant effect on life expectancy rates. Furthermore, there has always been a glutathione-enhancing capability attributed to whey protein in general and alpha-lactalbumin in particular. This capability is based on the intracellular conversion (by alpha-lactalbumin) of the amino acid cysteine to glutathione.

A quality whey protein supplement will often consist of about 20% alpha-lactalbumin, and Advanced Whey from AOR has been engineered to consist of more than 36% alpha-lactalbumin.

Lactoferrin
Lactoferrin's prominence in whey protein far exceeds its relatively minute size. In spite of its weight of only 80 kilodaltons at its most elemental level, Lactoferrin contains 703 different amino acids. Lactoferrin is an iron-binding whey fraction that has been known to demonstrate an impressive anti-microbial capability comparable to that of alpha-lactalbumin in addition to being able to control inflammation and cholesterol. Scientists have identified lactoferrin's anti-inflammatory capabilities through its stimulation of the anti-inflammatory cytokines (intracellular messengers) IL-4 and IL-10, and its simultaneous inhibition of the pro-inflammatory TNF-a and IL-ß cytokines. Lactoferrin's effects on cholesterol levels seem to be based on its ability to reduce the oxidation of LDL cholesterol, an important function considering how oxidized LDL cholesterol can damage artery walls and set the stage for mineral and fat deposits which lead to blockages. Lactoferrin also appears to be the transporter of iron in breast-milk, thus serving as the source of essential amounts of this mineral to nursing infants. Its multifunctional role also encompasses antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, antioxidant and immunomodulatory activities.

Lactoferrin's multi-faceted applications make any single mechanism of action challenging for scientists to isolate, but most seem to agree that it begins with lactoferrin's ability to bind to iron. Iron is essential for the growth of pathogenic bacteria and is also a major contributor to the generation of reactive oxygen species. This would go a considerable distance towards explaining the anti-microbial, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory activities of lactoferrin. Lactoferrin forms a much smaller percentage of whey protein than does alpha-lactalbumin. Advanced Whey from AOR has been formulated to contain up to 28% more lactoferrin than other high-end whey proteins currently available.

The Future
There is a particularly innovative whey protein fraction called N-acetylneuraminic acid - commonly known as sialic acid - that has been garnering attention lately. Definitively speaking, sialic acids are sugar molecules that are part of the glycomacropeptide content of whey protein. They are especially present in the content of human mucus and saliva and their biological role is to bind to invading pathogens for their subsequent excretion via the mucus membranes.

The world's leading protein researchers and industry leaders have been gathering once a year for the last four years to exchange information exclusively or primarily on the latest developments in whey. Sialic acids ranked as among the most heavily discussed topics at the last conference held in Chicago, Illinois in September of 2005. There is also clinical evidence demonstrating that sialic acids may be responsible for the ability of glycoproteins (similar to the type found in whey) to bind to E.coli and other types of bacteria and thus preventing their adhesion to the epithelial cell surface, thereby preventing infections from occurring. Furthermore, there has been recent evidence showing that the avian influenza virus (H5N1) has a propensity to attach itself to two particular types of polymers that are themselves linked to sialic acid, thus opening the possibility of sialic acid's potential effectiveness against this latest global health concern. While even the identification of sialic acid content at all would be an innovation in its own right for most whey proteins, the 4% sialic acid content of the glycomacropeptide fraction of AOR Advanced Whey represents an amount that is unsurpassed by any other whey protein available.

The widespread health applications of whey protein are heavily dependent on its alpha-lactalbumin, lactoferrin, and sialic acid content. The addition of these fractions is costly, which may largely explain why their benefits are not emphasized in most whey protein supplements. Advanced Whey from AOR reinforces these fractions with extra amounts over and above those which are naturally found in whey protein. The result is a whey protein with augmented - and unsurpassed - amounts of alpha-lactalbumin, lactoferrin, and sialic acid. This fortifying triad embodies the better part of a decade of research designed to transform a supplement staple like whey protein into a nutraceutical innovation.
