    What's with the cholesterol in Endurox?

    Check it out: http://69.94.64.50/enduroxr4.com/pag...nge_facts.html

    10mg of cholesterol per serving. Not much, but still...

    Well nominaly I would say that cholesterol is good for you however in this case its probably from the whey powder and since its proccessed the cholesterol is likely to be oxidised and oxidised cholesterol is the only kind you need to avoid.

    Interesting speculation on the presence of oxidized cholesterol in processed whey protein, but I think it's unlikely. It's not a good idea to heat whey during processing, since whey protein is a fairly delicate chemical.

    It has been shown that whey protein helps prevent immune system damage caused by oxidised cholesterol. The benefit of whey protein probably greatly outweighs the possible risk of a little oxidized cholesterol.
