Will drinking Chia seeds in my protein shakes cause a false positive on a drug test?

Will drinking Chia seeds in my protein shakes cause a false positive on a drug test?

Highly doubt it: Chia seeds are very healthy (see https://www. Nlm. Nih. Gov/medlineplus/ency/patientinstructions/000727.htm)
Searching online I saw one report of someone claiming chia seeds caused then to test positive for opiates, and saw that a colleague here states chia can cause positive tests- but she didn't give a reference.

I'm a vegetarian and everytime I drink protein shakes, eat peanut butter or fruit I get shaky and light headed. What causes that?

I'm a vegetarian and everytime I drink protein shakes, eat peanut butter or fruit I get shaky and light headed. What causes that?

Blood sugar/allergy: This is unusual. If these symptoms occur a couple hours after eating fruit it could be due to hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) but that would be unlikely after protein/fats. You may be allergic/sensitive to these foods (or at least one of the ingredients in the shake).If you are allergic to these foods it may be related to imbalances of intestinal flora. I advise seeing a holistic doctor. See comment:. ...Read more

Is too much protein bad for your health? I drink protein shakes and I don't know whether too much is bad for my health.

Debatable: Too much protein can have adverse effects but it varies per person. There is controversy whether kidney damage may occur with excessive protein. One question to ask is whether large amounts of protein are necessary- the answer is typically "no." most active athletes need in the range of 0.6-1 gram/pound. So, if you weigh 200 pounds, then 120-200 grams is plenty. More than that serves no purpose. ...Read more
