  • Frequently Asked Questions About Supplements

    No matter where your weight lifting journey started, we've all had questions one time or another about supplements. To help make getting started easier, this article provides the basics we've all asked or been asked. Alright, let’s do this.

    Will Drinking Protein Shakes Make Me Muscular?
    Does eating chicken turn you into the hulk? Nope. Protein shakes are nothing but extra protein. Its the same as having chicken, beef, fish or any other protein. It's just a more convenient way. It won’t magically bulk you up. Protein helps to improve recovery and build muscle, no matter what form you have it in.

    Do I Really Need To Take Extra Protein?
    Not as much as the online articles and bodybuilding magazines will have you believe. The truth is that if you are a natural weightlifter, you really don’t need much more than 1gram per pound of bodyweight and even that is really pushing it. Most folks will never need more than 0.6-0.7grams of protein per pound of bodyweight. If you eat enough protein from real foods, you really don’t need a shake.

    Are All Protein Powders The Same?
    No. Firstly, there are different types of protein. Casein, which is slowly digested (more lactose), whey concentrate (cheaper, digests relatively quicker, some lactose) and whey isolate (expensive, digests quickly, no lactose).

    Then there’s the question of quality, cheaper, unknown brands will surely have a bunch of other questionable stuff in there along with some cheap kind of protein.

    When it comes to supplements, always do your research and go with a trusted brand, even if it's a bit more expensive. Your health is more important than saving a few bucks.

    Can Protein/Creatine Cause Kidney Damage?

    This is an old myth and the answer is no. Unless you have some kind of pre-existing medical condition related to your kidneys (in which case you should contact your doctor before consuming these,) you will be just fine. Do note that more protein or creatine doesn’t mean more muscle. Stay within the recommended limits.

    Do Supplements Have Side-Effects?

    Yes. Anything, if not safely consumed within the right dosages and recommended doses can have dangerous side-effects. More doesn’t always mean better. Read the labels and do your research. What works for others might not always work for you, therefore, always start out with a smaller dose, assess your tolerance and then work your way up.
