Why I developed a new grass fed whey protein concentrate.

Why I developed a new grass fed whey protein concentrate by Dr Michael Lange

After years of nutritional research with macular degeneration and dry eye patients I found a large percentage of these patients were deficient in glutathione. Most of these patients were lacking the specific amino acids necessary to stimulate glutathione production do to their poor diets. I also found the best way to stimulate glutathione was for these patients to consume a non denatured whey protein concentrate once or twice daily. I rapidly found out all whey protein is not created equal. I have developed my reputation of developing the highest quality supplements in the industry and not cutting any corners in the development of nutritional supplements. I have found after working with patients for nearly 25 years that the vast majority are not getting good quality protein during the day especially for breakfast. When I started to reccomend a whey protein supplement to my patients I found that a really good quality protein with a decent concentration was hard to find for an affordable price. I started to research different types of whey protein and found out most whey protein is overly processed and comes from cows that are fed genetically modified grains,filled with pesticides, antibiotics, synthetic sweeteners, binders and hormones. I also found that most cows are A1 cows that have gone thru a genetic mutation altering the beta casein protein in the milk causing many digestive issues and other potential health problems. After extensive research I wanted a whey protein that came from A2 cows that graze year round on pesticide free grass and are not given antibiotics or hormones of any type. I also elected to use a whey protein concentrate instead of a whey protein isolate. The whey concentrate is the least processed form of whey protein that has not been stripped of the good fats, immunoglobulins ,minerals and enzymes. Whey protein isolates are overly processed and stripped of the valuable anti aging immunoglobulins. I also wanted a non denatured whey protein concentrate to maintain the natural quality of the whey protein the way God intended it. Non Denatured whey protein has the highest biological value of any protein. I found with my patients one of the best ways to stimulate glutathione is by consuming a non denatured whey protein concentrate daily. When protein is heated or denatured it converts covalent bonded cysteine to cystine a much less bio-available form of the amino acid. Covalent bonded cysteine is the most important amino acid responsible for the production of glutathione. Glutathione is crucial at all ages for a strong immune system. Lastly I decided to use New Zealand Grass fed A2 cows as the source for Fortifeye Super Protein because these cows met all of the criteria I required for the perfect protein I can stand behind and trust. A2 cows milk have not gone through a genetic mutation that alters the protein causing the digestive issues and other potential health problems associated with A1 cows milk. I worked for some time on a natural organic flavor system combined with non gmo sunflower lecithin to make both the vanilla and chocolate flavors delicious and creamy. Fortifeye Super Protein since it is grass fed year round has a higher ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 than a grain fed cows milk. This higher omega 3 ratio is crucial when dealing with patients with dry eye. Also since this is a grass fed concentrate it is much higher in CLA (good fat) and Lactoferrin (muti-functional protein) both have been found to be lower in dry eye patients. Making a smoothie in the am for breakfast using Fortifeye Super Protein or another non denatured whey protein concentrate from grass fed New Zealand A2 cows is a great way to start the am. I also recommend drinking another smoothie within 30 minutes of working out to maximize the results of your workout. Many of my patients have improved dry eye symptoms , lost  fat  and gained muscle when they have started following some simple life style adjustments and added a daily smoothie using this type of protein. I developed Fortifeye Super Protein so doctors and consumers now have a whey protein concentrate they can trust. You can purchase Fortifeye Super protein online at www.fortifeye.com or thru any physician that carries Fortifeye Supplements.  learn more science behind Fortifeye Super Protein here:  www.newzealandwheyproteinconcentrate.com

Natural treatment of dry eyes by Dr Michael Lange

Dry Eye Vitamins

revised article by Dr. Michael Lange 12/6/15
The day I graduated from Optometry school in 1992 is the day I began looking for natural approaches to help my patients.  I have tried just about every combination of vitamins and minerals in an effort to  improve ocular and overall health.  I started the Fortifeye Vitamin company and became a certified nutrition specialist in my quest to find the nutritional answers I was looking for.  I have been involved and am currently involved in ongoing nutritional research aimed at helping patients.   Since I live and practice in Florida one of the biggest problems I encounter with my patients is dry eye syndrome. It seems that just about everyone in the Florida area has some form of dry eye.  Dry eye nutrition is an area I have been involved in for numerous years. I have developed and re developed many dry eye vitamins over the…

New Zealand Grass Fed Whey Protein Concentrate from A2 cows boost immune system.

27 Nov

stimulate your immune system with grass fed whey protein concentrate and just maybe help your dry eyes too.

Natural Dry Eye Treatment

Dr Michael Lange and Fortifeye Vitamins has developed a new grass fed whey protein concentrate from New Zealand A2 cows called Fortifeye Super Protein.  This protein will be available in the middle of December and will come in 2 flavors: chocolate and vanilla.  Dr. Lange used about 10% more organic flavoring along with organic sunflower lecithin to make both have a delicious creamy  taste.  These A2 cows have not gone thru any genetic mutations altering the casein protein the way A1 cows have. Very few grass fed whey proteins come from A2 cows.  These cows are free range and feed on pesticide free grass all year long. This whey protein concentrate will have a higher ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 than a grain fed  protein. The CLA  ( good fat) will also be higher in a grass fed whey protein concentrate over a grain fed  protein.   This whey protein…

Nutrition for Dry Eye

the latest in nutrition for dry eyes!!

Nutrition for Dry Eyes by Michael Lange OD, CNS

Nutrition for dry eye is a subject I discuss with my patients on a daily basis.  I have a very large dry eye patient population and have learned what works and what does not work over the last 25 years.  I have used the traditional approach using a combination of heating and massaging the lid margins to open the meibomian glands, using a good artificial tear with hyaluronic acid like oasis tears plus or blink preservative free and  cleaning the lids with a good lid hygiene foam like ocusoft or cliradex.  So for dry eye 3 things are still crucial:  cleaning, heating and lubricating.  I have also used all the prescription medications available for dry eye over the past 25 years.  Since I have become more in tune with the natural approach to dry eyes I find I prescribe medication very rarely now.

Dr Michael Lange briefly describes all new Fortifeye Super Protein.

Fortifeye Super Protein is an all new Non Denatured whey protein concentrate from grass-fed New Zealand A2 cows.  These are cows that have never been genetically altered that feed year round on pesticide free grass pastures in New Zealand.  This protein is rBGH & rBST hormone free, antibiotic free,  non GMO, soy free, corn free, wheat free and  gluten-free.  A2  milk is produced from A2 cows which have the protein A2 beta casein which is differnt form the A!1 beta casein produced by A1 cows.  A2 beta casein is the original form of beta casein produced by cows 1000s of years ago.   A1 beta casein is believed to have occurred 1000s of years ago from  a series of genetic mutations.  A2  cows milk and beta casein is believed to be more nutritious than A1  and actually have some preventative aspects to the protein. This is a non denatured whey protein concentrate that means no excessive heat or acid has been used in the creation of this whey protein concentrate. Another name would be undenatured whey protein concentrate. Undenatured whey protein is the same thing as non denatured whey protein concentrate.  A whey protein concentrate is more natural and less processed than a whey protein isolate.  This protein has not been stripped of the immunoglobulins and healthy fats that are crucial for absorption of the protein and enhancing the immune system.  Fortifeye Super Protein contains the full range of immune building  and regenerative components like: CLA,  Lactoferrin, Immunoglobulins, peptides, growth factors and covalent bonded cysteine ( precursor of glutathione).  Fortifeye’s non denatured whey protein concentrate  has gone through the processes to preserve and maximize the biological activity and  bio availability of the whey protein.  This protein has two delicious creamy chocolate and vanilla flavors.  Only organic and natural flavorings have been used in this product.  Adding  a good non denatured or undenatured whey protein concentrate  from free range grass-fed A2 cows to your daily nutritional regiment is a step in the right direction of anti-aging.  Fortifeye Super Protein will be available mid to late November at www.fortifeye.com and thru many anti aging physicians offices.

Is the blue light u are being exposed to daily from your computer, tablet, smart phone, television and indoor lighting harming you?

2 Aug

Dr Michael Lange of Lange Eye Care and Associates and Fortifeye Vitamin discusses the potential harm blue light is causing and how a lens called  Blue Light Defense may  be the answer.  Blue Light protection is a hot new topic!

Studies are now proving that a specific wave length of light in the blue-violet  spectrum is harmful to our eyes and possibly our entire body.  This blue-violet light that is being produced and emitted by smart phones, computers, tablets, over head indoor lighting and television to mention a few.  All of us on a daily basis are exposed to extreme levels of this potentially harmful blue light.  Blue light nearest the range of 400-420 nm seems to have the most destructive effects on the retina in the eye.   These blue light rays not only may cause early aging in the eye with cataract formation at a younger age  and earlier signs of macular degeneration but new studies also indicate these blue light frequencies of light may have some negative effects on our general health. New studies indicate this evening light exposure especially  blue light exposure may interfere with our sleep patterns.   To be able to filter these harmful blue light rays by wearing a pair of glasses that has a lens that absorbs the harmful blue light was only a dream a few years ago.   Blocking and filtering the harmful blue light ( Blue Light Defense)  is now a reality. Blue light protection  is a hot topic in all of the continuing education seminars for eye care providers.  Many companies now have lenses that claim to block and filter the blue light. One must be very careful when shopping for blue light protective lenses.  First and foremost find out how much of the blue light and at what frequency in nanometers is actually being blocked. Many companies are selling only coatings that will have a minimal filtering effect  on the blue light and may block only small percents of the harmful blue light. Also u must make sure the lenses are cosmetically appealing to you. Some of these new generation Blue blocking lenses are yellow, yellow-brown, orange ,red or purple and may be cosmetically unappealing to you and actually may decrease the transmission of light into the eye .  Blue Light Defense lenses are one of the most exciting break thrus in the optical industry!  This is a lens that is almost clear and blocks over 99% of the wave lengths of blue light from 400-420nm. Theses lenses also block a good portion of the blue light all the way to 450 nm.  These blue light absorbing properties are actually throughout the lens in the monomer not a coating.  This lens comes in trivex material, 1.60 and 1.67 high index.  Dr Michael Lange says this is a true anti aging lens, “to be able to offer a lens to our patients that filters some of the most damaging rays of light and is almost totally clear is absolutely amazing!”    Dr Lange has been using this lens with his patients since November 2014 and states that patients comment all the time on how happy they are that purchased this particular lens. Many patients will state that their eye strain has been reduced significantly while working on the computer and many also state they are sleeping better.  Dr Lange was the first to use this new lens in the country but states many eye Doctors will be offering Blue Light Defense to their patients in the end of 2015.   Dr Lange recommends parents  purchase these lenses in no prescription for their children that don’t need a prescription that are on a digital app like smart phone or tablet throughout the day. He also says it is a no brainer to use this material  in all prescription eye wear. Why wouldnt u??  Here is a link  to purchase  non prescription Blue Light Defense  lenses and frame combo.  This price is only a short term  introductory price since the frame alone sells for this price and the lenses are basically free.  The internet is selling many  blue filtering lenses for a very discounted price however remember “you get what you pay for”.  Most of the blue filtering lenses are filtering a very small amount and virtually useless. Make sure you look for Blue Light Defense.    www.bluelightdefense.com
