Amino acid tabs: Are likely not necessary if your are taking whey protein. Please make sure to eat enough protein directly from food and also take good fat to burn as fuel. This would be eggs and things such as coconut oil and olive oil. If you want to go further you can get a Micronutrient Test from Spectracell Lab in Texas. Check out their website. Peace and good health. ...Read more

I'm an athlete. Could daily consume of whey protein+amino acids cause dependency in the future?

I'm an athlete. Could daily consume of whey protein+amino acids cause dependency in the future?

NO: You are already dependent on protein- we all need a certain amount of essential Amino Acids for good health. Taking when protein or other Amino Acids will neither increase nor decrease the amount that your body needs, except that as you develop more muscle mass you may need a bit more protein over time to maintain those muscles- but I would not consider that "dependency.". ...Read more

Is there any interaction between isolate whey protein and klonopin (clonazepam)? I'm asking because protein contains amino acids and I suppose its not a good mix with klonopin (clonazepam).

Is there any interaction between isolate whey protein and klonopin (clonazepam)? I'm asking because protein contains amino acids and I suppose its not a good mix with klonopin (clonazepam).

Protein binding: We mostly have information on protein binding of Clonazepam (klonopin) in the context of organ failure compared to normal. Any Amino Acid you eat, or any protein is usually well regulated by liver and kidneys and likely has little impact on its metabolism as a drug unless you have organ failure and altered protein metabolism. ...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

Are whey and casein protein powder shakes safe long term? Any alternatives that also contain all essential amino acids? Thanks!

No consensus: Quinoa, a grain, is a complete protein, as is soybean. Eggs, chicken, meat and fish. Best to eat wild fish like salmon, limit meat to antibiotic free-very lean meats, and cage free eggs and chicken. Nuts and beans also have protein but are not complete. ...Read more

Is organic whey protein OK for a 211 lbs 20 F to take when wanting to loose weight? My goal is to loose 12lbs started 30 min cardio workout a week ago

Whey protein: Provides good nutrition but see your doc for a food plan that matches your health needs. Many people do well on a low carb diet. Low fat diet will only make you hungry and not provide fat for fuel, which you would need to replace the sugar fuel that is not healthy. Peace and good health.

Is it ok to take a preworkout plus protein shakes plus amino acids plus multivitamins. Distributed along the day and not at the same time.?

Your nutrition plan: Sounds fine but it would be best to see a nutritionist so that the plan can be tailor made to fit your needs. Many over the counter multivitamins are weak. A professional can tell you which brand is best in your local area. Look more for higher doses of each vitamin w/in the mulitvit rather than a longer list of ingredients.

What is your take on sport supplements such creatin, protein and amino acids.?

What is your take on sport supplements such creatin, protein and amino acids.?

They do work.: Actually, protein, amino acids (particularly the BCAAs) and creatine will actually help - there is literature to support their benefit. Make sure you drink plenty of water while increasing your intake of proteins and adding creatine. For creatine, no more than 5g daily (can get benefit with as little as 1g daily). For protein, don’t need much more than 1g per kilogram body weight per day. ...Read more

Amino acid 2222 tabs shuld be taken before taking whey protein or after taking whey protein?

Amino acid 2222 tabs shuld be taken before taking whey protein or after taking whey protein?

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
