I have low sperm count. So that I am using spermotrend. And I also go to gym. So that can I take creatine and whey protein too?

Yes: Yes, it is fine to take creatine and whey protein, though I advise a whey protein from grass-fed cows not given hormones and processed at low temperature. I also a advise a good multivitamin and possibly extra zinc. Many other herbs like ashwagandha and tribulus may be helpful in increasing sperm counts. See http://natural-fertility-info.

I'm 18 and I decide to take whey protein and optimum creatine 2500 is that safe to me and how many caps should I take from creatine?

Read label: The label on the container probably has a recommended amount. However you do not need to take this supplement if you are taking a normal mixed diet. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats.

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. ...Read more

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

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. ...Read more

I have been working out and been taking whey protein. I am an ectomorph. I have started taking creatine. Will it help?

NO: Creatine with help you recover so you can work out effectively again. To build muscle, eat proper amounts of protein, complex carbs and green veggies. Eat enough- that's the biggest mistake- and lift weights that are heavy enough that you cannot do more than 8-10 reps with proper form ...Read more

Whey protein/creatine at 17 years old, is this okay?

Most likely: Whey protein is safe for 17 y, assuming that person has no health problems. Rarely is a 17 y male not skeletally and anatomically mature. Therefore, it is most likely safe to take creatine as well. However, this is not a "magic bullet." if you take these products and don't workout, you will just gain unwanted weight. Lastly, almost no scientific study has been done with. ...Read more

Can I breastfeed while using whey protein with creatine?

No problem: I see no problem with this protein supplement. Your body will process & use the products of your diet & assemble milk for baby based on babies needs, not necessarily what you eat.

Is it bad for me to take whey protein and creatine while on accutane?

Is it bad for me to take whey protein and creatine while on accutane?

I don't advise it.: Accutane already has the potential to cause liver and kidney damage and should not be taken lightly or without close monitoring. High protein and creatine powders add an extra layer of stress to your system & could cause dehydratiion. In the long run, it takes time and hard work to build muscle, and you only need modest protein in your diet to supply that. ...Read more

Was wondering if it's okay to take whey protein/creatine at 17 years old?

Was wondering if it's okay to take whey protein/creatine at 17 years old?

Yes whey, no creatne: With resistance (weight) training. Limit carbs. For fastest results, do the slow carb diet or South Beach Diet at the same time use your choice of whey protein drinks/powders. Of course, follow this advice only when cleared by your doctor as certain disease states would not support this.

I'm a natural body builder and was wondering about products I use, I take whey protein everyday and cycle a creatine (arganine, tyrosine, L-carnatine)?

Forget supplements.: There are no legitimate studies of any size that warrant supplement use. If eating protein made muscles, everybody in America could benchpress a Cadillac with their pinky finger. Increased muscle mass is only due to resistant training of several hours a day, several days a week for months if not years. High protein diets have long been known to be unhealthy. Many forgot this for a while, ...Read more

Hello, Is it safe to consume a whey protein which contains 2.5 g of Creatine Monohydrate per serve?

Probably: The answer depends on your weight. It is safe taken in a daily dose of 0.03 grams per kilogram per day, meaning a person weighing 180 lb (82 kg) can safely take a daily dose of 2.5 grams per day. That's one serving of your whey protein supplement. ...Read more

I have 8 months to get back in shape. Could taking whey protein, bcaa powder and creatine help you gain muscle faster than not taking it?

Yes with caveats: Your exercise regimen is most important in terms of getting back in shape. Weight training and high intensity interval training (HIIT) are the best forms of exercise to achieve your goals. With HIIT, you will only need about 20 minutes per session, 3 days per week to see results. Chose creatine monohydrate and essential amino acids, not BCAA's. Whey isolate is good; be sure it doesn't contain junk ...Read more

I'm using whey protein and creatine shakes with workouts. I'm putting on muscle but not shedding body fat. Why?

Cardio: Ultimately muscle weighs more than fat. Takes time to take off pounds. More importantly the best way to lose fat is calorie intake and cardio workouts. You need to get your heart rate up (for example interval training) to lose the fat. ...Read more

I am taking 60 grams of whey protein with 5 g of creatine daily while going to gym. Does these supplements have any side effects?

I am taking 60 grams of whey protein with 5 g of creatine daily while going to gym. Does these supplements have any side effects?

Not usually: They are both "relatively" natural. Creatine is made in the body and passes into muscles where it is stored as creatine phosphate, a form of energy storage. It is lost from muscle and excreted in urine as creatinine. I do not know of any clinical trials that test whether your physical (and mental) capacity is improved. ...Read more

Would suppliments like whey protein or creatine powders help or hinder healing of pulled muscles?

Would suppliments like whey protein or creatine powders help or hinder healing of pulled muscles?

Likely neither: Eating extra protein or extra Amino Acids is sort of like eating a second helping of roast pork loin, grilled chicken breast, or scrambled egg whites. The foods taste better, cost less, are more natural, and should support healing just as well. ...Read more

I want to use whey protein and creatine supplements for mass gain but I have a weak kidney. .. If I use these supplements would it effect my health?

Supplements useless: Don't believe the hype-people will try to sell you something to look better/get stronger. I wouldn't buy it, especially if your kidneys may have trouble with an extra protein load from these products. Best to work out 'the old fashioned way' with dedicated aerobic & weight training. Your body, believe it or not, will tell u how much protein to consume. (i.e. thoughts like 'what do I want to eat'). ...Read more

Unnatural substances: Taking multiple substances sold as supplements or body enhancers is unnatural (eating food is natural), and such supplements are not tested for effects and side effects, compared to the testing that is required of real medications. Thus, all sorts of claims can be made by sellers and other people, but in reality nobody knows for sure what good or bad things can happen. As they say, "Buyer beware." ...Read more

Is there a connection between acne breakout and intake of whey protein (and/or creatine)? My acne broke out as soon as I started taking these.

Milk and acne: Whey protein is the protein contained in whey, the watery portion of milk that separates from the curds when making cheese. There is a recent clinical study done in Italy where they linked a considerable percentage of acne outbreaks to milk and dairy products, so it could be the whey, probably not the creatine. ...Read more
