Capra Mineral Whey Pro™ Alkalizing Goat Milk Mineral Whey is the same as our standard Capra Mineral Whey, but with no added silica. Capra Mineral Whey Pro™ is a 100% all-natural powdered mineral/electrolyte supplement sourced from all natural goat milk whey. It contains over 20 naturally occurring macro and trace minerals in a bio-organic form that is easily assimilated by our metabolism.
WHY CAPRA MINERAL WHEY PRO™?
For decades, Mt. Capra has single handedly changed the nutritional landscape by manufacturing a one of a kind goat milk mineral whey supplement called Capra Mineral Whey™. Capra Mineral Whey™ has provided the mineral and electrolyte needs of tens of thousands of health seeking individuals. Capra Mineral Whey™ is produced via a gentle extraction process that captures the nutrients without harsh processing methods. It contains potassium, magnesium, sodium, calcium, and phosphorus, and many other trace minerals.
Potassium, a key mineral for human biochemistry, helps to regulate acid-base balance as well as water hydration levels. Unfortunately, potassium deficiency is very common in today’s stressed-out populations. Symptoms can include fatigue, depression, hypertension (high blood pressure) and muscle weakness. Potassium can be found in a healthy diet of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. However, the Standard American Diet (SAD) does not account for proper potassium intake. The SAD diet can promote over-consumption of highly processed foods containing low amounts of potassium and high amounts of table salt sodium. Capra Mineral Whey Pro™ contains over 1000 mg of potassium in a recommended serving, thus avoiding over-consumption of those processed foods.
Sodium is a crucial mineral for healthy cell performance, proper neurological function, and a host of other body systems and processes. Consider the relationship sodium has with amino acids, and the importance becomes quite clear. Amino acids can only be absorbed through the small intestine via a sodium-dependent transport system. When sodium cannot bind to a carrier, certain amino acids will simply not be absorbed. Capra Mineral Whey™ is comprised of what is known as ‘bio-organic sodium’, meaning that it comes from a natural food as opposed to table salt sodium. The sodium found in Capra Mineral Whey™ assists in proper amino acid absorption.
WHAT DOES THE TERM “TRACE” MINERALS/ELEMENTS MEANS?
In the world of nutrition, minerals are divided into two basic groups. Macro minerals — potassium, calcium, phosphorus, sodium, etc. — are needed in the body in fairly large amounts. “Trace” minerals — copper, zinc, manganese, vanadium, cobalt, etc. — are needed, too… but in very, very small amounts. Although minimal in quantity, trace minerals are a critical factor in maintaining a proper balance of health. Capra Mineral Whey Pro™ contains an abundance of both macro and trace minerals.
DOES CAPRA MINERAL WHEY PRO™ HAVE ELECTROLYTES?
Yes, Capra Mineral Whey Pro™ does have many electrolytes including sodium, potassium, magnesium, calcium, chloride, and phosphorus. These positive and negatively charged ions are literally capable of conducting electricity in a liquid. They help maintain the membrane potential of cells and are a crucial aspect of muscle function, high energy levels, heart activity, and pH balance in the blood and tissues.
CAPRA MINERAL WHEY PRO™’S EFFECT ON ENZYME ACTION
Did you know that there are over 3,000 active enzymes in every cell of the body? An entire “family” of enzymes are labeled metallo-enzymes, because one or more metallic minerals play an essential role in their function. For example, copper is a key element in many enzymes that build or tear down body tissue. Manganese is used by enzymes needed to utilize several vitamins. Zinc is used in over 80 enzyme reactions that are critical for life in all people!
