Whey protein is an acceptable protein source for lactose-intolerant people. Studies show whey protein is a top protein for quality, efficiency and digestibility, naturally rich in branched and essential amino acids, functional peptides, antioxidants and immunoglobulins. Whey protein studies show benefits against metabolic diseases (cancer, cardiovascular complications, hypertension, obesity, diabetes and phenylketonuria) and that it might render certain tumor cells more vulnerable to chemotherapy.
Immune System Support: Whey protein contains immunoglobulins and lactoferrin, which can support the immune system. A strong immune system is essential for identifying and eliminating potentially cancerous cells, and whey protein isolate may help in this regard.
High-Quality Protein: Whey protein isolate is a complete protein, meaning it provides all essential amino acids required for various bodily functions, including immune function and tissue repair. Maintaining a healthy protein intake can support overall health, indirectly contributing to cancer prevention.
Muscle Maintenance and Weight Management: Adequate protein intake, including whey protein, can help maintain muscle mass and promote satiety, potentially aiding in weight management. Maintaining a healthy body weight is associated with a reduced risk of obesity-related cancers.
In most cases, whey protein isolates are processed to remove most fats and lactose, resulting in a product with minimal amounts of vitamins. Since the whey protein manufacturing process focuses on isolating proteins, there are typically very few vitamins present in a 90% whey protein isolate product. However, some traces of water-soluble vitamins like B-complex vitamins (e.g., B12, B6, riboflavin) may still be found, albeit in small amounts.

If you have or suspect you have a medical issue, we recommend you consult with your trusted physician, oncologist, pharmacist, holistic adviser, or other licensed healthcare professional of your choice.
Research: Obviously, food choices and diet are critical to a healthy everyday life, and even more so when fighting cancer at any stage. Now, after a decade of cancer-specific nutrition research and our own FightBack Foods® products development, we are more convinced than ever that intentional nutrition is imperative for any cancer battle. Importantly, our research over the past decade drove us to appreciate more than ever that naturally occurring nutrients found in a variety of foods, can greatly assist in the battle against cancer.
Thus, we have attached primarily PUBMED sourced information about each ingredient used in our first product - FightBack Foods® Bites, and some of the relevant research that rationalizes each one’s use in our products. Even if you don’t buy our bites, please see the many benefits associated with each ingredient we use, and perhaps find some way to incorporate them into a daily diet with relevant nutrients necessary to assist in anyone’s fight against cancer.
PUBMED: PubMed is a free search engine accessing primarily the MEDLINE database of references and abstracts on life sciences and biomedical topics. The United States National Library of Medicine at the National Institutes of Health maintains the database as part of the Entrez system of information retrieval. (As defined by Wikipedia)
