Dr Mercola Pro Optimal Whey 

Pro Optimal Whey is a multi-purpose protein powder with additional vitamins, minerals, and enzymes to optimize your well-being and health. Pro Optimal Whey is ideal as a go-to breakfast protein drink, as a post-workout recovery drink, or as an energizing between meals snack. Anytime you need a quick, convenient meal or snack, Pro Optimal Whey provides all the nutrition and energy you are looking for.


One scoop of Dr Mercola Pro Optimal Whey has 17g of energy boosting whey protein. Pro Optimal uses Proserum brand Whey Protein- a customized, non-denatured whey protein powder that undergoes a unique, cold-process, acid-free pasteuriziation that keeps all of the fragile, immune balancing and restoring componants of fresh, raw milk. This exceptional quality whey protein never uses cross-flow filtration, microfiltration, hydrolyzation, or any other process that could denature the orginal proteins found in pure, raw milk. 

Inferior protein powders are often heat pasteurized, which destroys the enzymes, weakens vitamins, and denatures (damages) fragile milk proteins, destroys B vitamins, and kills beneficial bacteria. 

The unique process of proprietary filtration and drying methods used in Pro Optimal Whey means you get the following benefits found in natural whey, such as:

  • • Lactoferrin - Enhances iron absorption when needed, supports immune health and optimal inflammation levels
  • Immunoglobins - Offer numerous immune system beneftis
  • Boine Serum Albumin - Contains thousands of cysteine and glutamine, necessary for glutathione (an important antioxidant and detoxifier) production
  • Active Peptides - Specialized paired amino acids that boost immune systems and intracellular glutathione
  • Covalent-Bonded Cysteine - Critical precurser for production of glutathione
  • Growth Factors - Protein fractions that help regenerate aged or injured cells, build and retain muscle, process energy more effeciently, enhances immunity, supports healthy blood sugars and brain chemicals

The milk used in Dr Mercola Pro Optimal Whey comes only from cows that graze on pesticide-free, chemical-free, natural grass pastures. These cows are never subjected to chemicals, hormones, antibiotics, GMOs, hyper-immunizations, injected pathogens, or any bovine growth-hormones. They are not from factory farms and are never grain-fed.

The milk that comes from these pasture-fed cows has excellent levels of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), a potent antioxidant that supports healthy weight, normal immune function, and normal insulin and cholesterol levels. Research shows that pasture-fed cows have up to 500% more CLA in their milk than cows fed silage. 

The high quality whey protein in Pro Optimal Whey is one of nature's richest sources of biologically active protein, and as close to its natural form as a protein supplement can get.


The whey protein in Pro Optimal Whey, with all of its beneficial and natural compounds, is only the beginning of the nutritional benefits in this formula. Vitamins, minerals, and enzymes offer additional nutritional benefits.

  • • The vitamins included in Pro Optimal Whey include antioxidant vitamins C and E. These antioxidants can help reduce inflammation and fight free radical damage. B vitamins support needed energy levels, reduce the risk of heart-disease, and can ease stress and anxiety. 
  • • Pro Optimal Whey also includes naturally chelated, high quality minerals. Minerals play an important role in maintaining optimal health, and by chelating the minerals it ensures a better survival of the minerals in the acidity of the stomach, and allows for better assimilation and absorption in the intestines. Chelated magnesium, zinc, and chromium support healthy blood sugar and insulin levels, regulate metabolism, play an important role in energy production, support immune health and normal cell growth and development. 
  • • Whey protein is derived from milk. Dr Mercola Pro Optimal Whey includes a proprietary full spectrum enzyme blend which contains lactase and proteases. This blend of digestive enzymes was added to aid in the digestion of the small amounts of lactose present and to assist in the breakdown and assimilation of the various high quality proteins found in milk. 


Unlike other protein powders, there are no sweeteners or artifical flavors in Pro Optimal Whey. Instead, natural vanilla and natural chocolate flavors have been added to make this a tasty protein drink. Pro Optimal Whey can be enjoyed on its own, or can be "dressed-up" with your own additions, like berries, bananas, nut butters, or anything you choose. 


Pro Optimal Whey can be quickly enjoyed, blended or shaken in a blender bottle. Simply add one scoop in eight ounces of water or the beverage of your choice (raw milk, kefir, or yogurt), and stir, shake, or blend to combine. 

This is a "fast food" that you can feel good about enjoying at any time. 

Why Choose Pro Optimal Whey?

Available in Vanilla and Chocolate natural flavors.
