How Do Whey Protein Supplements Damage the
Digestive System and How to Prevent it
  • Whey protein is the protein you get from milk, as
    part of the cheese-making process. Whey protein
    and casein are the two proteins of milk. These
    days, the market is filled with a lot of protein
    supplements and it is really tough to select the
    right one. Whey protein can cause a reaction in
    people who are lactose intolerant. Such people
    should go for other proteins like plant-based,
    soy, rice, pea, etc. Other side effects of whey
    proteins are loss of appetite, bloating, stomach
    upset, pain, etc. Let us look at some ways in
    which whey protein supplements can affect the
    digestive system

  • Whey Protein Type There are three types -
    concentrate, isolate and hydrolysate. Concentrate
    contains lesser amount of protein and also
    includes fats and carbohydrates. Isolate contains
    more protein than concentrate. Hydrolysate
    contains protein in the predigested form. If you
    cant digest concentrate then you can opt for
    isolate or hydrolysate.
  • Milk vs. Water If you take the supplement with
    milk, it will be more difficult to digest. Milk
    contains fats, and carbs and is quite slow to
    digest. Taking the supplement with water makes it
    easier to digest it.
  • Method of Consuming If you drink the shake too
    fast, or all at one go, it can be a shock to your
    stomach. It is always better to drink it slowly
    and without swallowing much air (it can cause
    gas).

  • Quantity Dont believe what you read in ads or
    reviews. Not everyone needs 3-4 scoops of protein
    a day. If you have more protein than you actually
    need, then it will be an overload on your
    digestive system.
  • Dont solely rely on supplements for your protein
    needs. You can go with other sources of protein
    in your diet like eggs, pulses/dal, vegetables,
    nuts, dairy products, etc. Natural products are
    really the best way to get any nutrients.
    Supplements should only add on to that. Also, do
    buy authentic products, even if they are more
    expensive. The market has a lot of fake products
    and they are harmful. They contain carbs, oils
    and fats and things like growth hormones and
    steroids. So, check for authenticity before
    buying.
