Alpha-lactalbumin is a natural whey protein containing a naturally high content of all essential and branched-chain amino acids (BCAA), making it a unique protein source. The most significant amino acids in alpha-lactalbumin are tryptophan and cysteine, together with the BCAAs; leucine, isoleucine and valine.

Alpha-lactalbumin in health foods

Due to the high content of branched-chain amino acids (BCAA, ~26%), especially leucine, alpha-lactalbumin effectively supports and stimulates muscle protein synthesis, making it the ideal protein source for improving muscle health and help prevent sarcopenia during ageing.

Alpha-lactalbumin is one of the food proteins with the highest content of the amino acid tryptophan. Tryptophan (Trp) is an essential amino acid that has to be obtained from the diet and cannot be synthesised in the body. Tryptophan is the precursor of serotonin, which is a neurotransmitter and also functions as the precursor to melatonin (hormone involved in the sleep-wake cycle). Serotonin exerts multiple effects and is implicated in the control of the appetite, mood, sleep regulation, cognitive performance and the ability to cope with stress.

Alpha-lactalbumin offers a natural way to formulate foods tailored to boost the bodys serotonin production with various effects related to healthy weight and natural well-being.
