Is there any side effects or bad effect to the body drinking whey protein?

Controversial: There is much debate about whey protein, derived from dairy, regarding its effects on health. I don't believe one should get protein from dairy and prefer non-animal sources like quinoa, nuts and beans. I also like wild salmon for protein and mostly healthy fats. Books like the china study demonize whey and claim it causes cancer and autoimmune disease. No one knows for sure so use other sources.

I want to workout nd have creatine nd whey protein. What r the side effects?

Stay hydrated: A danger of creatine is kidney failure. Do not take more than directed and do not take the loading dose for a prolonged period. Stay hydrated! Some baseball players were hospitalized from excess creatine use causing renal shutdown. Whey protein is generally safe but excess protein is also hard on the kidneys. Again drink plenty of water.

I want to know if there is any side effects in using whey protein and creatine?

Kidney problems: Whey protein is a milk derivative. If you are lactose intolerant this will not help you build muscle b/c it will lead to bloating and abdominal pain. If you have no lactose intolerance, it is a good source of protein. Men need about 1.2-1.7g/kg/daily of protein to help build muscle mass. Creatine builds muscle but with all protein you MUST drink alot of water since it is hard on the kidneys.

Check mayoclinic: What matter is total daily proetein intake. High protein diet does put higher load on kidneys and can interfere with drug absorption also.

Whey protein: Whey is a natural substance - the protein of dairy. It is healthy. However, commercial powders may have additives that are unhealthy. Keep pure with protein. Choose a powder, if you must, that has no or very few additives.

Does whey protein supplemet have any side effects to human body?

Does whey protein supplemet have any side effects to human body?

Listen to your body: It is a processed food. A high protein diet from processed food is acidic. It is best taken with lots of fresh green vegetables and fruit which provide fresh water. Good essential fatty acids are needed and slow carbs from anti-inflammatory grains. If taken in that way and it still causes symptoms, don't use.

Is optimum nutrition's gold standard whey protein free of side effects for a weight lifter?

Is optimum nutrition's gold standard whey protein free of side effects for a weight lifter?

Whey protein: Whey protein is good for you but please do not rely on it as a way of replacing a good diet. The shakes can supplement the other protein, fat, and carbs you eat. Please check out the product to see if the whey comes from grass fed/free range cattle or penned up cattle w/antibiotics. Avoid the latter. Peace and good health. I am not familiar w/the particular brand you mention.

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.

I am 23 old sir, and I am going to gym, my trainer suggested me to take whey protein supplyment, I am afraid of side effects is it anything like that?

Whey supplements: Are suggested by your trainer to increase your body's muscle building components. Meat can also do this, but you might not eat meat (if you are vegetarian) and whey is more portable and also will provide more hydration. I don't think you need to be too concerned about side effects from whey...as it comes from milk.

Hello. Wat r the side effects of protein suppliments like whey protein for body building. ..Help?

Depends: If the supplement is limited to just whey protein, when you take this drink its as if you were eating a high protein food. Should not be any risk at your age if you are healthy. Only problem is if there are other ingredients in the shake.

I'm drinking whey protein after I work out. Can I still consume alcohol? Does it have any side effects?

I'm drinking whey protein after I work out. Can I still consume alcohol? Does it have any side effects?

I see no conflict: I see no conflict between protein shakes after workouts and alcohol consumption. But it's a matter of degree. How much alcohol we talking about? Because moderate alcohol intake is pretty safe. But excessive alcohol consumption definitely has side effects, including nutritional depletion.
