Welcome to the
Whey Protein Study
Target Communities: ME/CFS and FM
Whey protein may help ME/CFS and/or FM by increasing glutathione production; an important antioxidant. In this study whey protein is consumed daily for 6 weeks while symptom and cognition are measured 5x over that period. Note: whey protein is a milk product and most products will contain at least traces of lactose.
If you were planning on trying Whey Protein as a treatment feel free to use the information and services here to help you make a more thorough evaluation. Note that Mendus does not run traditional scientific studies. Rather, we provide information that allows people to test things for themselves. It is then up to you whether to share your results with the community. The information here does not constitute medical advice. We strongly advise consulting a physician before following guidelines.
