Could bodybuilding supplements(protien/carb powders) slow body cleansing process?

Could bodybuilding supplements(protien/carb powders) slow body cleansing process?

No: Your body keeps itself clean, and exercising helps. Protein powders offer no advantage over quality lean dietary protein except perhaps price; carb powders are probably not doing you any good. Creatine's a helpful supplement for bulk; beyond this, I'd advise you not to invest much money or enthusiasm in any bodybuilding supplements. ...Read more

Including essential Amino acids supplement (BCAA) would affect gout? Is Whey Protein supplements & glutamine supplement safe for gout users?

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

What are some good bodybuilding supplements?

What are some good bodybuilding supplements?

Be savvy: Try to get enough lean protein. When you're bulking up, try to eat 1 gram per pound that you weigh daily. Creatine will help you gain bulk. Ask your physician whether an electronic muscle stimulator is right for you. Beyond this, I'd urge you to avoid the whole supplement game -- the benefits, if any, are small and there's a lot of charlatanism. Glad you're opting for fitness. Best wishes. ...Read more

Does nutritional supplements like whey protein contain steroids? Or, are, they harmful?

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 more

Is amway nutrilite protein powder good as diatery supplement ?

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
