I am 58 year old female. I go to the gym. Should i take protein powder supplement?

Exercise: You can take a protein powder supplement as a snack or as a meal to augment your plan toward excellent fitness. It is not necessary to increase protein if you have a balanced diet but having a shake once a day, no more than 15 to 20 grams of protein is appropriate. Try rice protein rather than whey to limit dairy. Best wishes. ...Read more

Nitrogen metabolism: Hi. Yes, it's probably OK. Your type 2 diabetes control is excellent using diet & exercise. Is your blood pressure good at rest? That's important too. High nitrogen (i.e., protein) intake works the kidneys hard. If you have any kidney problems (diabetes or others), high nitrogen intake may be inadvisable. So without knowing your case, all I can say is it's probably OK. ...Read more

Gain muscle mass: A single 5 g (5000 mg) oral dose in healthy adults results in a peak plasma creatine level of approximately 120 mg/l at 1–2 hours post-ingestion. Creatine has a fairly short elimination half-life, averaging just less than 3 hours, so to maintain an elevated plasma level it would be necessary to take small oral doses every 3–6 hours throughout the day. Follow directions! ...Read more

Body building/ Whey: Many of the powders/supplements contain whey as the source of extra protein as a substrate for muscle and body building. Generally they are safe. If a person doesn't exercise appropriately, it can be just a source of extra calories. So taking extra whey does not mean you will build muscle alone. Vegan/vegetarian options exist, with a soy base. I have seen new allergic reactions to whey as well. ...Read more
