What Are The Whey Protein Side Effects?
by Michael Baker
easily digested by lactose intolerant people. The standard whey protein powder will
have about 5-6 % lactose. This level is usually not too big of a concern for people,
but just keeps this in mind when you begin using the supplement.

Another thing to remember is not to use too much protein. Your kidneys will have a
very hard time with too much of any protein. You see, too much protein can do 2
things.

Firstly, it can turn the blood acidic. Your blood pH should be in the 7.0 range. When it
becomes very acidic, it must correct itself, and do something to make it more basic.
The one readily available basic element in your body (yes, we are talking a little
chemistry here) is calcium. So, your bones will release the calcium into the blog,
which will pick up the acidic byproducts of the protein, thus turning your blood back
to a neutral level.

This sounds good, until you realize there will now be little calcium deposits floating in
your blood that must be removed. These end up in the kidneys, and then you will be
required to urinate them out. I am sure you have heard of kidney stones? This is one
of the causes of them. So, be sure to limit the protein to some certain levels and
ensure your body responds to them well.

The second thing it can do is put your body into a condition known as ketosis. I don't
care what you have heard about ketosis before, but it is bad on your kidneys. Yes,
your body will begin to burn fat for energy, but this is the result of most people
starving themselves of carbohydrates.

Some people also just drink straight protein shakes. This also wrecks havoc on your
body because it is not sure what to do any more with the carbs or with the fats. I
always go on the principal that your diet should be consistent with what breast milk
is. Since this comes naturally, I would assume this should be pretty good as a
guideline. Some may not agree, but hey, it's my opinion.

In general, there are no side effects really related to whey protein. If you can follow
some of the tips above, you should be able to make the addition of whey protein
into your diet, and have positive results pretty fast.
