Protein

Protein

We hardly ever eat straight protein, but get it from foods like meats, fish, and soy, along with fats and carbohydrates in a protein package. Almost all reasonable diets provide enough protein for your body to break down into the building blocks knows as amino acids. Recent interest in protein has been created by studies showing that diets high in protein and low in carbohydrates are at least as effective as low fat higher carbohydrate diets. Severe lack of protein can cause malnutrition diseases, but there is little evidence that high levels of protein do anything harmful.

    Infants under the age of one year should not use instant protein without consulting a doctor. Instant protein is also not for people with galactosemia. It should also not be used for people looking to reduce their weight. It is to be used as a food supplement only and not your only source of nutrition.

    Instant protein has almost no side effects. You should not take more than the recommended dose as too much protein can cause liver damage. It may also cause you to gain lean mass. If you are lactose or gluten intolerant, you can purchase instant protein in lactose-free and gluten-free varieties.

    Instant protein is a food supplement that has few side effects if you take it as directed, to add protein into your diet that your body naturally requires. But too much protein in your diet can be harmful to your kidneys. You should not take more instant protein than is recommended. Your kidneys filter the by-products from protein breaking down. The by-products can be harmful to you and high amounts of protein cause your kidney to have to work harder. Extra protein can also cause you to gain more body mass and is not recommended for people looking to lose weight.

    Protein can be categorized into two types: complete and incomplete proteins. Proteins are made up of smaller units, called amino acids. Complete proteins contain all of the amino acids your body needs and include meat, fish, poultry, dairy, and soy products. Foods that are lacking or are very low in one or more essential amino acids are considered incomplete proteins. These foods include beans, grains, nuts, and vegetables.

    Instant protein is a concentrated form of protein. It comes in a powder and adds extra protein to anything you mix it with. It can be added to food or beverages. It doesn't lose its nutrient benefits when you cook with it. It provides the nine essential amino acids that your body needs if it can't create them itself.

    You should not exceed the recommended amount of instant protein according to the package label. Different brands have different amounts of protein per serving, and you should not consume more than the recommended amount according to the label. Too much protein in your diet can harm your kidneys and liver as they filter the by-products when the protein is breaking down. Excess protein consumption can cause these organs to be strained.
