Is amway nutrilite protein powder good as diatery supplement ?

Better available: It is ok but i think you can do much better. My concerns: the main ingredients are soy and milk protein. Almost all soy these days is gmo unless it is organic & there is evidence this is unsafe. Milk is mostly from cows fed gmo corn & soy unless organic. Amway does not use organic sources. A much better protein powder is whey cool from grass-fed cows. Also take a good multivitamin. See comment:. ...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.

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

Does whey protein and creatine powder harm to kidney stone patients? Should I stop or continue taking it? Stone size 3.4mm on right and 3.2mm in left.

Does whey protein and creatine powder harm to kidney stone patients? Should I stop or continue taking it? Stone size 3.4mm on right and 3.2mm in left.

I would stop..: Kidney stones occur when certain components of the urine--typically calcium, oxalate, uric acid & phosphorus--increase and become concentrated. Then they precipitate causing stones. Excess protein intake demands more work from kidneys and possible less efficient flushing of these urine components. Protein supplements may increase kidney work demands; get protein in diet. ...Read more

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. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. ...Read more

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

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

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

Should I take creatine, whey and glutamine supplements as I just began weight training last month?

No: Such supplements are not studied enough by researchers because these supplements are not FDA-approved drugs for treating particular disorders.

So, it is best for all athletes to train and build their bodies the natural way, with healthy nutritious foods, avoiding sports supplements or body-building supplements. ...Read more
