There are some bodybuilders out there who wont take whey protein as a supplement because they think that there are too many bad effects to taking it. Are there any bad side effects to whey protein? Here is what you need to know to decide whether or not whey protein is going to be safe or not.
One thing that you might hear a lot of guys at the gym say is that whey protein gave them an upset stomach. This could definitely be true, because whey protein is made from milk byproducts. If youre allergic to milk, you are probably going have the same reaction to whey protein.
The reaction that you get is going to be similar to a food allergy, including symptoms such as diarrhea, a stomachache, bloating, gas, and perhaps a bit of swelling. If you experience any of these symptoms, of course you should stop taking whey protein. Usually, these symptoms will only last for a couple of hours and then go away.
If you know that you are allergic to milk you should definitely avoid whey protein and choose other sources for getting the protein that you need for bodybuilding.
Whey protein is often said to be responsible for wrecking livers and kidneys. It is unknown whether or not this is true. It is known that whey protein isnt more difficult for your kidneys or liver to process than other protein substitutes. The harm comes when you add too much protein to your diet. For bodybuilders who need the extra protein and are careful using it, it is probably not going to be a problem.
If you aren’t a bodybuilder and consume too much protein, it is going to be difficult for your body to process it, and it could turn into a problem. Consuming too much protein will eventually lead to your body having troubles digesting it properly.
Whether or not whey protein is going to ruin your liver is probably going to be something you want to think about before starting the use of this product. Remember, whey protein is no more dangerous then any protein product so keep this in mind and you should find the decision easier. In fact, whey protein is a very healthy substance to be taking in and it has many benefits to it. Usually these benefits far outweigh the risks.
One danger of whey is that it may lead to osteoporosis later in life. Before purchasing your first can of whey protein, you are going to want to look at this side effect. Studies have shown that your risk of osteoporosis increases only if you use whey protein for a long time.
If your plan is to just use whey protein supplements to gain lean muscle mass and then stop using it, you are probably going to be ok. You may want to talk to your doctor to discuss whether or not whey is going to have serious side effects on your health before starting to take it.
There is some truth to the statement that there are some negative side effects to taking whey protein as a bodybuilding supplement. However, adding whey protein to your diet is probably going to give you more benefits and make the side effects seem really small.
If you decide to take another protein supplement to increase your muscle mass you are probably going to find that the side effects of it are the same or worse. There are not that many people out there that know that whey protein is relatively safe and an excellent protein supplement.
