Essential nutrient content per 100 g of selected dairy foods Dairy food (food code)
It is a visible more open structure with a lower molecular weight. Due to this, it is easier to digest. The molecular weight of whey is lower than casein. Whey is ingested faster into the bloodstream with the benefit of being available to the muscle and cells when needed. The importance of whey also can be found in the support of the immune system. Whey could be used during the aging process as additional recuperation food item to support faster recovery after injury, during disease, and with muscle weakness. The supply of whey should be administered over the day in small, easy to digest amounts for maximum effect. The best way to administer whey as the supportive medication is as a liquid in the diluted form of around 12 – 14 gram per serving. The digestive time is around 30 minutes.
Colostrum is a form of milk produced by the mammary glands in late pregnancy and in the few days after giving birth. It has high concentrations of nutrients and antibodies. Colostrum is high in carbohydrates, high in protein, high in antibodies, and low in fat. Colostrum contains fat-soluble vitamins, minerals, and immunoglobulins. Immunoglobulins are basically antibodies that provide the passive immunity to the birthling, which is responsible for prevention of the viral and bacterial infection. Colostrum brings eight growth factor that promotes normal cell growth, DNA synthesis, fat utilization and increases mental activity.
An assumption still to be proven is that colostrum would be an important immune booster for the elderly and supportive to their digestive track and general health.

There are many discussions about the maximum availability of proteins to the human body when supplementing plant or animal origin proteins. Part of the scientist has strong evidence that plant origin proteins are better and more healthy for the human system. Other scientists have evenly strong evidence that animal proteins are better. The best way is to look at the digestive system before making a judgment. Many “scientist” use personal preferences to push one or the other options. It is possible both, plant and animal proteins, are useful but all depend on the individual digestive track which cannot be controlled nor tested from a distance but only by trial and error. This is one of the reasons why diets have a different effect on every individual and personal care is a must, not an option.
There is 3 general type of digestive systems:
The human being is Omnivore and able to digest multiple source protein. It is unknown yet if a vegetarian diet is healthy enough for a person to have a long life. Currently, the research among centurions shows no sign of that. In an overall study of the current human being, it is clear that a meat-oriented diet is no longer considered healthy. New research points to a diet dividing of;
These combinations are suggestions only and more research still has to take place. Fact is that in a current activity level of 80/20 (80% of the day less or not active / 20% of the day active) a plant diet shows to be more digestible and safe than a meat-oriented diet. At a lower activity level meat creates more digestive obstructions and problems than plants.
New sources of proteins in the future would be bugs which are protein rich and easy to grow.
REMARK; protein supplementation is overall easily available but must be critically approached. Supplies are often of questionable sources. Protein supplementation has a large filling property, meaning that digesting a “meal” of protein-rich food stops most people from eating their normal food. This is not a positive development as the digestive tract is based on solid foods and will decay if the foods are liquid. The use of protein as a supplement is a matter of professional judgment and not one of simple trial and error if concerning a weak health person. The following information is important to check and supply to people in the care.
Proteins for human consumption must undergo a number of treatments before it is ready to use.
Proteins are the building blocks of the body and the cornerstones of life. One of the major important protein-based structures in the body are the enzymes. Enclosed the list of category, name, and function as a reference. Enzymes go before hormones (this seems to be a highly disputed statement but all hormones only come to activity after they undergo a change by enzymes) and the observer should pay attention to the function and health benefits.
Enzymes are of vital importance to our health and also highly vulnerable to toxins and health (=environmental) changes.
Table of enzymes is found in chapter 3.
During aging, most of these enzymes decrease in strength and activity. One of the main goals is to support the activity and strength of these enzymes to ensure a maximum lifetime.
