Highlands Ranch, CO, July 21, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- ProteinPruTect is a new protein powder supplement that uniquely addresses the immunity and digestive needs of both professional and amateur athletes, as well as non-athletes.
The new supplement is formulated with immunoglobulin concentrate known as IgG 2000 DF. Immunoglobulins are proteins used by the immune system to identify and neutralize foreign objects like bacteria, viruses and other pathogens.
This enables ProteinPruTect to counteract immune system deficiencies caused by stress and physical exertion, and improves digestive health by aiding in the development of probiotics and preventing leaky gut syndrome—all in addition to helping build lean muscle mass and being a natural appetite suppressant.
ProteinPruTect is the second product in the new pharmaceutical-grade supplement PruTect Series, developed by Head Neurosurgeon to the Denver Broncos and Rocky Mountain Spinal Clinic, Dr. Chad Prusmack, M.D. ProteinPruTect is now available exclusively on Dr. Prusmack’s website, www.NutriLifeRx.com.
According to Dr. Prusmack, “With a surface equivalent to a football field, the gastrointestinal (GI) tract is a prominent part of our immune system, continuously exposed to pathogens.”
“We all know that emotional stress can suppress the immune system, but so too can strenuous workouts that cause immune cells in the GI tract to produce less than the normal amount of immunoglobulin antibodies. This often leaves well-conditioned athletes more susceptible to illness than non-athletes,” says Dr. Prusmack.
IgG 2000 DF is a supplemental immunoglobulin that acts first in the GI tract to destroy pathogens so that the body’s other immunity resources can be directed elsewhere.
Improved Digestive Health
The lining of the GI tract is a barrier that allows nutrients to be absorbed into the bloodstream. When damaged or permeated—a condition called leaky gut syndrome—pathogens can pass directly through.
Antibodies are triggered to destroy these pathogens but generate oxidants in the process that cause inflammation throughout the body. This can lead to irritable bowel syndrome, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, and allergic reactions.
“IgG 2000 DF aids in the development of probiotic microflora or ‘good bacteria,’ which strengthens GI tract lining, lessens gut permeability, and results in less inflammation and subsequent health issues,” notes Dr. Prusmack.
ProteinPruTect is formulated using protein from rice and pea, instead of the traditional whey. As such, ProteinPruTect is 100% free of dairy, soy and gluten (traditional GI tract irritants), making it hypoallergenic, vegan and even kosher. ProteinPruTect also does not cause the gas or bloating so common with other supplements, and contains zero cholesterol.
“Pharmaceutical-grade” means that all ProteinPruTect ingredients are more than 99% pure. The exact dosage of each ingredient is listed in milligrams on the label. Most other supplements offer feed- or food-grade purity and do not list the dosage of any ingredient.
To provide greater public accessibility to pharmaceutical-grade supplements, Dr. Chad Prusmack, M.D. created the website NutriLifeRx.com. NutriLifeRx features the kind of supplements used personally used by Dr. Prusmack and which he prescribes to his patients to help speed their recovery following surgery and to live healthier lives.
