Does nutritional supplements like whey protein contain steroids? Or, are, they harmful?

Does nutritional supplements like whey protein contain steroids? Or, are, they harmful?

No steroids: Supplements bought legally within the US do not contain steroids. Whey protein and other nutritional supplements are generally not harmful, but are also not necessary for adequate muscle development- appropriate diet can supply all you need, and supplements are costly. There are also some supplements, like creatine, that while generally safe can pose harm in selected people. ...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?

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

Is it bad to take sports supplements with diabetes? Currently consuming protein/creatine shake, sd matrix, fat burners, fish oils vitamin C tablets?

Since all that: Junk is a waste of money, doesn't do anything positive for you except spend your money, why do it? Besides, you don't know what's in any of that stuff, what harm it could possibly do to you, how it could interact negatively with medication or other supplements, etc. Save your money and use it on monitoring strips, healthy food, valid medication, etc. That can help you live better and longer. ...Read more

You have "hepatitis": Hepatitis is defined as inflammation of liver cells, as is indicated by elevation in serum transaminases (ast and/or alt). Hepatitis can be caused by a variety of issues (infectious, ischemic, metabolic, toxic, infiltrative, alcohol-related, drugs, etc.). It's impossible to say why your liver tests are elevated without more information--so what tests have been done ; what else has been ruled out? ...Read more

More benefit from : Like all supplements, this is not a tested regulated substance. There are no tests showing if it interacts with you current medications. Also like most supplements you will end up peeing out all you take in. Despite what we all want there is no miracle pill to "burn fat". regular exercise and a good diet are the only proven weight loss cures. Try 30-45mins of brisk walking 4 times a week. ...Read more

Not likely-Who Knows: Whey is just a byproduct of cheese production, something else to sell by promoting customer illusions.

Are t5 max strength fat burners ok to take?

Are t5 max strength fat burners ok to take?

Diet pill: My philosophy is that the best way to lose weight is not by dieting or a pill, but by changing your lifestyle to a healthier one. You don't need a drastic diet. Make small changes. Eat the right portions, eat 3-5 small meals a day, cut back on carbs and sugars, increase lean protein/veggie/fruit/water intake, ; start doing some cardiovascular exercise. Most physicians wouldn't suggest a diet pill. ...Read more
