Whey Protein and Cortisol: Back to the Research

By Neel Duggal Dec 09, 2014

In the first part of a three-part series on whey protein and cortisol, we examined a research study from theyear 2000 assessing the impact of whey-derived protein Alpha-lactalbumin on chronic stress. Ultimately, researchers unveiled that consumption of this protein can lead to quantifiable decreases in levels of cortisol and its stress-related symptoms while simultaneously increasing production of serotonin and its positive impact upon mood (Markus). However, as with most scientific research, new questions arose and researchers wanted to know more specifics about the relationship between whey and stress. In this final part of a three-part series on whey protein, we continue to examine more recent literature documenting the impact of the consumption of whey-derived Alpha-lactalbumin protein on the cortisol, serotonin, and chronic stress.
