Proteinex is a liquid protein supplement that contains all essential and non-essential amino acids in a small serving. Our source of protein is collagen, which is the most abundant protein in the body, found in the skin, bones, ligaments, and connective tissue. Proteinex does not contain any fat, carbs, or sugar and its gluten and dairy free.
If you’re taking other supplements you may be wondering if Proteinex could be added to your diet and to your current supplementation. In most cases the answer is yes. Since Proteinex only contains pure protein, adding it to your diet in combination with other supplements is generally safe and very effective.
Proteinex products contain from 15 to 26 grams of protein per dose. This is comparable to two eggs, a glass of whole milk, or a cup of lentils. If you’re taking a multivitamin supplement you can think of it as adding two whole eggs to your diet – well, minus the sodium… and cholesterol. But you get the idea!
Great! So, I’m adding Proteinex to my diet!
Not so fast. Although adding a protein supplement to your diet is generally safe, you must always consult with a healthcare professional before beginning this, or any other supplement. If you are a healthy adult, chances are you won’t need protein supplementation. If you exercise, are recovering from surgery, or don’t eat sufficient protein, supplementation may certainly be right for you. If you have a medical condition, it is crucial to talk to a healthcare professional as protein supplementation may interfere with your current treatment or condition.
What you need to avoid is excess protein consumption. Eating too much protein is a no-no. Although protein is an essential part of our diet, consuming too much protein can have serious side effects to our health. Too much protein can lead to weight gain, digestive issues like diarrhea or constipation, and kidney complications to individuals who are already prone to kidney disease, among other.
Always aim for adequate protein intake, which depends on your age, gender, activity level, and health condition. And, most importantly, talk with your physician before changing your diet or adding any new supplementation. Your health should always be monitored by a healthcare professional!
