Amino Acid Supplements Vs Protein Powder
Including essential Amino acids supplement (BCAA) would affect gout?
Is Whey Protein supplements & glutamine supplement safe for gout users?
None will effect gou: Gout is related to URIC ACID and PURINES, not amino acids or protein supplements. BUT, since everything you mention is a complete waste of money, why bother to ask? There are meds used to control gout in different ways. Low dose aspirin and thiazide diuretics tend to raise uric acid levels. Alcohol, especially in large amounts, often causes attacks. Low purine diets are slightly effective. ...Read more
A dietary supplement, also known as food supplement or nutritional supplement, is a preparation intended to supplement the diet and provide nutrients, such as vitamins, minerals, fiber, fatty acids, or amino acids, that may be missing or may not be consumed in sufficient quantities in a person's diet. Some countries define dietary supplements as foods, while ...Read more
Will an amino acid formula interfere with synthroid (thyroxine). For example GNC amino acid formula?
Are whey and casein protein powder shakes safe long term? Any alternatives that also contain all essential amino acids? Thanks!
You're fine: Twenty grams after a workout will be great. I'm pleased you're exercising and building muscle; some people prefer soy because it's vegetarian / vegan. Both are good choices, and despite what you may hear from others there's no real reason to prefer one over the other for the ordinary fitness buff. ...Read more
"Amino fuel": It might be generally safe, but it has 10 grams of sugar in each serving and also uses Cyanocobalamin for the b12. Routinely using anything over 5 grams of sugar in a serving causes a sugar spike and increased Insulin response -- possibly leading to Insulin resistance which you do not want. Also, methylcobalamin is much preferable over Cyanocobalamin for the b12. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Better available: It is ok but i think you can do much better. My concerns: the main ingredients are soy and milk protein. Almost all soy these days is gmo unless it is organic & there is evidence this is unsafe. Milk is mostly from cows fed gmo corn & soy unless organic. Amway does not use organic sources. A much better protein powder is whey cool from grass-fed cows. Also take a good multivitamin. See comment:. ...Read more

Synthetic: "polyamino acids" are synthetic, and i don't know of any natural foods that contain them. Drug companies use them in research and drug delivery, etc. Of course proteins (that you can eat) are made up of Amino Acids (many of them!) -- so in a sense that would be like a polyamino acid. But it isn't the type the term usually means. ...Read more
Is safe to take in combination: Zinc, Calcium complex, Vitamin C, Flax seed oil and Whey protein?
Those supplements: in combination are not a problem. Perhaps a more important question would be why do you take them all? If you have health concerns please see your doc or a nutritional consultant. Split vitamin C up into a.m. and p.m. doses because it only lasts about 12 hours in body. Peace and good health. ...Read more
Glutamine amino acid: Glutamine is an Amino Acid (basic building block of proteins). People take it for various reasons as a dietary supplement. It purportedly helps maintain muscle mass in athletes or patients following surgery or major illness. Patients on chemo may take it to prevent or lessen side-effects. Caution should be taken for those with kidney or liver failure, mental illness or epilepsy or allergy to msg. ...Read more
No: No; your height is determined primarily by your parents and grandparents height and is generally ' fixed' @ age 19 in boys and age17 in girls.Older people can " lose" height as they age by chronic osteopenic compression fractures...Bodybuilding can increase muscle mass and tone but not height. ...Read more
No steroids: Supplements bought legally within the US do not contain steroids. Whey protein and other nutritional supplements are generally not harmful, but are also not necessary for adequate muscle development- appropriate diet can supply all you need, and supplements are costly. There are also some supplements, like creatine, that while generally safe can pose harm in selected people. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it bad to take sports supplements with diabetes? Currently consuming protein/creatine shake, sd matrix, fat burners, fish oils vitamin C tablets?
Since all that: Junk is a waste of money, doesn't do anything positive for you except spend your money, why do it? Besides, you don't know what's in any of that stuff, what harm it could possibly do to you, how it could interact negatively with medication or other supplements, etc. Save your money and use it on monitoring strips, healthy food, valid medication, etc. That can help you live better and longer. ...Read more
No.: Hormones- steroid will.Get a more detailed answer ›
Best taken separate: Amino acids compete for absorption with one another. Thus, if you take them at the same time as whey protein they will be somewhat less well-absorbed than if taken separately. I would advise taking them at least one hour apart from each other, but it probably doesn't matter which you take first. I advise whey from grass-fed cows processed at low temperature for maximum benefit. ...Read more
