I was curious what's the difference between the amino acid and protein shakes?

Technically: Proteins are built from amino acids, so effectively an 'amino acid' supplement or shake is digested somehow from protein source - or manufactured from precursor. Protein shake will contain various sources, usually from food, but not always of proteins. What would be best for you depends on many different issues. Discuss with nutritionist.

Are protein and amino acid supplements in the form of powder safe for consumption? If taken moderately?

Are protein and amino acid supplements in the form of powder safe for consumption? If taken moderately?

Usually yes: As long as a protein supplement doesn't contain other substances, then it's safe in moderation. Be aware that supplement manufacturers often put things in their products that are not listed on the label, and there is no regulatory oversight of these products (they don't have to meet regulatory requirements like medications do). A better option is to increase intake of high-protein foods.

Are whey or protein-amino acid drinks good for losing weight while working out or more for gaining weight/muscle?

Are whey or protein-amino acid drinks good for losing weight while working out or more for gaining weight/muscle?

Muscle/Gain Weight?: These are promoted for assisting in building muscle which require the Amino Acid building blocks for muscle protein. The usefulness of whey proteins for promoting this from small clinical trials, is small, maybe a few % over foods. Maintaining muscles does require more daily energy, so to the extent that muscle mass ; strength significantly increase, this might assist reduction in body fat.

A person must take protein supplement or amino acid supplement, and how can we know our body is amino acid deficient?

A person must take protein supplement or amino acid supplement, and how can we know our body is amino acid deficient?

Usually not needed: Protein is made up of amino acids, There are 9 amino acids that need to be eaten every day for best health. They are found in animal products like meat, milk, & eggs, & most healthy people eating 0.8grams of protein for each kg of weight get enough. Plant sources of protein: Soy is OK IF COOKED. Quinoa OK also. For most, though, a combination is needed; eg rice AND beans - but do research first.

Amino acid 2222 tabs shuld be taken before taking whey protein or after taking whey protein?

Amino acid 2222 tabs shuld be taken before taking whey protein or after taking whey protein?

Best taken separate: Amino acids compete for absorption with one another. Thus, if you take them at the same time as whey protein they will be somewhat less well-absorbed than if taken separately. I would advise taking them at least one hour apart from each other, but it probably doesn't matter which you take first. I advise whey from grass-fed cows processed at low temperature for maximum benefit.

Can you tell me in laymans term, how does the amino acid substitution that results in abnormal hemoglobin have a drastic effect on protein structure?

Can you tell me in laymans term, how does the amino acid substitution that results in abnormal hemoglobin have a drastic effect on protein structure?

I will try: A protein has a complex twisted and folded shape that is dependent on the interactions of amino acids that can be far from the amino acid change. Some amino acids are charged (positive or negative) and some are not. Charged amino acids can repel or attract.

Taking protein shakes and amino acid tabs could leads to varicoceles or any testicular issues? What are the side effects of these supplements?

Taking protein shakes and amino acid tabs could leads to varicoceles or any testicular issues? What are the side effects of these supplements?

No? But Also No Data: By law, dshea 1994, see fda.Gov, for all dietary supplements, the manufacturer/marketer/seller are exempt from evaluating or proving claims of efficacy or safety. The bigger issue, my view, is why purchase expensive processed food waste rather than cheaper real food. All meats & to a? extent most above ground vegetables are? protein; i.e. Large molecules built from Amino Acids per genetic code.

Balance diet. Better: These supplements may be ok but nothing is like balanced diet with healthy protein as egg whites, soy, whey, fish. ..Supplements are ok, but do not overdue it. Also drink plenty if water to balance for protein and keep your kidneys healthy!

HELPFUL IF COMPLETE: For Amino Acid supplements, you want to have them all in right proportions. Some are essential; some are non-essential. However, they will only be as good as the one you have in least amount. Many otc products are less expensive because they keep the more expensive Amino Acids (e.g., l-tryptophan) to a minimum. You need Amino Acids to build protein and muscle. Whey is usually non-allergenic.

What can I do to decrease stomach acid?

What can I do to decrease stomach acid?

Be healthy: There is little that you can actively do to change the acid production inherently. However, there are things to avoid, such as caffeine, alcohol and heavy meals that include red meats. But diet alone is generally ineffective in treating reflux or ulcers. Medications such as proton pump inhibitors, h2 blockers or sucralfate are standard medical treatments.
