Caprotein® is one of our highest quality goat milk protein powders in terms of digestibility. Caprotein® has been fermented with probiotics which partially pre-digests the polypeptides increasing the bio-availability of the amino acids for absorption and utilization as well as making the protein far more digestible.
WHY CAPROTEIN™? Caprotein is the highest quality goat milk protein powder available. It is made from goat milk that contains no antibiotics or growth hormones.
WHY DO WE NEED PROTEIN? Proteins are the building blocks of human life, essential for normal growth. Proteins have many important bio-actives including immunoglobulins and enzymes. Proteins form the foundation of muscles, bones, skin, hair, blood and heart. Lack of dietary protein can hinder these foundational areas. Protein generally contains approximately 22 amino acids. Eight of those amino acids are essential because the body cannot produce them and so they must be obtained from our diet. Caprotein contains all of the essential amino acids for optimal health.
WHY NOT A VEGETABLE OR SOY PROTEIN? Vegetable proteins lack the complete spectrum of essential amino acids which, as the name implies, are essential for muscle building. Supplementing with a protein that lacks essential amino acids is like taking a daily multivitamin that is missing key vitamins. It is also best to avoid soy protein supplements as they contain phytates which block key enzymes, and phytoestrogens which is a form of hormone. Phytoestrogens can disrupt normal hormonal function. Also, “natural soy” is toxic unless enzymatically treated with chemicals to neutralize a dangerous enzyme.
CAPROTEIN IS MINIMALLY PROCESSED Most other milk protein powders are made from cow milk and though they claim to be minimally processed they use several invasive processing steps including heating at high temperatures. At Mt. Capra one of the most important production methods we use is the Refractance Window Drying machine, a drying method that uses conduction, convection and infrared which applies minimal and variable heat sources to gently dry Caprotein and preserve the original integrity that keeps it as close to nature as possible. This unique drying process allows the powerful probiotics and digestive enzymes to thrive from the lacto-fermentation or “pre-digestion” process. The naturally occurring probiotics and enzymes make Caprotein the perfect choice for both young and old alike.
