Protein Powders

Our Naturopaths Say

What do protein powders do? And is protein powder good for you? Protein powders are concentrated sources of protein, usually from animal or plant based sources - such as dairy, eggs, rice or peas.  Their main use is for increasing muscle mass, improving overall body composition and can also be used to help meet protein needs in the diet. There are so many types of protein powders on the market, some better than others. Choose a protein powder based on your dietary preferences, food tolerances and health and fitness goals.  Happy Way is one of our firm favourites, as is the Nutra Organics Clean Protein.

Do protein powders help me to lose weight?
Protein powders may be able to help support weight loss when used in conjunction with a healthy diet and regular physical activity. Protein has been shown to increase feelings of fullness and help reduce appetite, which may lead to weight loss. However, it is important to note that protein powders should not be relied upon as a sole source of nutrition and should be used in conjunction with a balanced diet. It is also important to consider the total calorie content of protein powders, as some may be higher in calories than others.
How to choose the right protein powder for me?
Determine your protein needs. Consider your age, weight, gender, and activity level to determine how much protein you need on a daily basis. Choose a protein source that aligns with your dietary preferences. Protein powders are available in a variety of sources, including animal-based (such as whey and casein) and plant-based (such as soy, pea, and hemp). Consider your dietary preferences and any allergies or sensitivities when selecting a protein powder. Consider taste and texture. Protein powders come in a variety of flavors, so try to find one that you enjoy the taste of. Also, consider the texture of the powder, as some may be thicker or thinner than others.
Are there any potential side effects of protein powders?
Protein powders may have potential side effects, such as digestive discomfort, allergic reactions, or kidney damage if taken in large amounts. It is important to follow the recommended serving size and speak with a healthcare professional or registered dietitian before adding protein powder to your diet, as it may interact with certain medications or have potential side effects.
