Pure Goat's Milk Protein
Goat's milk is the most widely consumed milk in the world
GOATEIN goats are not fed pesticides, herbicides, growth hormones or antibiotics
Many people who cannot drink cow's milk can take GOATEIN goat's milk protein
GOATEIN contains all the essential amino acids for optimal health GOATEIN is minimally processed to preserve its original composition
GOATEIN contains probiotics and digestive enzymes
Animal Protein VS Vegetable Protein
Animal protein is the only source of complete protein available. Animal sources of protein (such as Goatein) have many advantages over vegetarian sources (such as soy) because vegetarian sources are typically low in one or more of the essential amino acids even when overall protein content is high. There is now some controversy regarding the safety of soy. Soy protein is thought by some researchers to be high in mineral-blocking phytates and thyroid-depressing phytoestrogens. Potent enzyme inhibitors in soy may even depress growth*.
The smaller molecules of goat's milk are closer in size and composition to human milk, making it easier to digest. Goat's milk protein is also substantially less allergenic than cow's milk protein in susceptible individuals. Additionally, Goatein is partially pre-digested enhancing absorption and bio-availability of it's nutrients.

Why Do We Need Protein?
Proteins are the building blocks of human life, essential for normal growth. Protein is 90% of the dry weight of blood, 80% of muscles, and 70% of the skin. Proteins provide the building blocks for
connective tissue and are the primary constituents of enzymes, hormones and antibodies. They encompass many important chemicals including immuno- globulins and enzymes. In short, protein forms the foundation of muscles, skin, bones, hair, heart, teeth, blood, and brain and the billions of biochemical activities going on in our bodies every minute. When we fail to consume adequate amounts of protein, the blood and tissues can become either too acidic or too alkaline. Lack of dietary protein can retard growth in children, and in adults can be a contributing factor in chronic fatigue, depression, slow wound healing, and decreased resistance to infection.
Proteins contain approximately 22 amino acids, eight of which are essential because the body cannot
produce them. Therefore, they must be obtained from our food. The sulfur-containing amino acids: methionine, cystine, and cysteine are particularly important for the health of the brain and nervous system. The amino acid cysteine, which is the one most severely damaged by processing, is possibly the most important anti-catabolic amino acid. There is clinical evidence that supplementing the diet with bio-available cystine and other amino acids contained in specially processed milk proteins can help build blood quality and even detoxify harmful chemicals. Studies have shown as little as 20mg of bio-available cysteine per day produces dramatic results in individuals using resistance training. One daily serving of Goatein provides over 45mg of cysteine.
Goatein is Pure
Goatein is the highest quality protein powder available. It is produced from goat's milk that contains no antibiotics or female growth hormones. Most commercially available dairy protein powders are produced from animals given antibiotics and/or rBST that can provide the user with unacceptable amounts of female hormones. (Is there an "acceptable" amount?) Many vegetable protein powders are made from non-organic, or GMO sources and may contain chemical residues.
Goatein Goat's Milk is absorbed more easily
The smaller molecules of goat's milk are closer in size and composition to human milk, making it easier to digest. Goat's milk protein is also substantially less allergenic than cow's milk protein in susceptible individuals. Additionally, Goatein is partially pre-digested through a lactic acid fermentation process to make it even more bio-available while virtually eliminating its lactose content. Research has shown that proteins from milk that have been pre-digested by lacto-fermentation are absorbed more efficiently than those of non-fermented milk. During the fermentation process many digestive enzymes are created that aid in the assimilation of food nutrients. In "THE MILK BOOK", William Campbell Douglass, M.D., states that the protein contained in cultured (lacto-fermented) dairy products is the highest quality available for human consumption.
Goatein is minimally processed
Most other milk protein powders are made from cow's milk and, though they claim to be "minimally processed," use several invasive processing steps, including heating at high temperatures. These methods denature many important amino acids and DESTROY enzymes and beneficial bacteria. Research suggests that processing whey with heat and acid (i.e. ion-exchange) results in the loss of several key amino acids including:
Cysteine 73-77%, Threonine 35-45%, Serine 18-30%, and Lysine 19-20%.
Because Goatein is processed without the use of acid or excessive heat, the amino acids, enzymes and beneficial bacteria remain in their natural form.
Goatein is high in amino acids
The building blocks of proteins are crucial for proper immune system function. Because Goatein is processed without excessive heat or acids, it contains biologically active cystine, glycine, and glutamic acid in tri-peptide form. The combination of these three amino acids forms glutathione. Glutathione functions as a principal antioxidant, scavenging free radicals and environmental toxins such as lipid peroxides that can damage and destroy healthy cells. When the body suffers from oxidative stress, supplies of glutathione diminish. Oxidative stress affects the nervous, immune and endocrine systems and may be an underlying cause of fatigue. Glutathione is extremely important for the proper functioning of the immune system through its critical role in the growth and replication of lymphocytes, the cells that mediate specific immunity. Goatein also provides immunoproteins such as albumin, lactalbumin, and lactoferin that have been shown to stimulate immune response.
