Three Whey Protein Side-Effects

February 27, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 181

Is there such a thing as Whey Protein side-effects? Before we can answer that question, we have to note that protein in general is a fundamental substance in every living organism. Not only for muscle development, but also in any aspect of our daily life, protein plays one of the most significant roles since it is considered as the building block of the human muscular and skeletal system.

Protein exists in several different forms and types. As a dietary supplement whey protein is a cheese byproduct. Its value is highly appreciated especially in the area of bodybuilding and different brands of Whey Protein overwhelm the market. But are there really any side-effects? Although over-consumption can cause some side-effects it hasn't been scientifically proved that consumption of Whey Protein is responsible for any serious side-effects. However, some slight consequences have been reported:

1) Since Whey Protein is a byproduct of cow's milk it might contain some small amount of lactose. People who are allergic to lactose could face similar problems with Whey. Nevertheless, the amount is too small to cause any serious side-effects even to allergic people.

2) Some people claim that prolonged intake of large amounts of any kind of protein can eventually lead to liver problems. Such a statement though, has never been scientifically verified. All you have to do in order to be sure is to follow the manufacturer's recommended dosage and take the supplement periodically throughout the year allowing yourself resting periods. For example, after finishing your protein powder, wait for a couple of months before buying the next one.

3) Another possible side-effect of Whey Protein over-consumption is osteoporosis. Increased Protein intake for years can cause imbalance of the bone minerals, which leads to osteoporosis. People with osteoporosis lose their bone density, and face increased risk of injuries and bone breaks. This side-effect is also without scientific backup. As I mentioned above, if you keep the right dosage and consume protein supplements periodically you have nothing to be afraid of.

As a conclusion, we might say that like everything in our life overdoing it can only have unpleasant results. Most of the claims about Whey Protein side-effects haven't been proven scientifically and others aren't severe enough to alarm you. If consumed properly Whey Protein can be your most valuable ally in muscle development. The above statement is valid for any protein type like casein, egg, soy, etc.

Keep those muscles pumping!
