Whey protein is a mixture of proteins isolated from whey. People are getting more concerned about their health it is becoming essential for them to fulfill their daily protein requirement of 1-1.2g per 1 kg of body weight for inactive adults and 1.5-2g per 1 kg of body weight.

Will whey protein affect my kidney?

These questions are usually for when you want to try something new. We are here to answer all of them.

We don't think it’s correct even to call ‘whey protein’ as a supplement because it does occur in natural food sources as well! We will help you clear your doubts about whey protein, that’s why we are not a nutritional supplement but a nutritional complement. 

 

What is whey and where do we get it from?

Whey is derived from animal milk.

Milk protein is divided into 2- Whey (20% of the protein in milk) and casein (80% of the protein in milk)

Whey protein is said to be a complete source of protein as it contains all essential amino acids (These amino acids are not produced by the human body so it must be supplemented through diet) which are required by the human body.

Whey protein is water-soluble while casein protein is insoluble in water.

Why do I need Whey Protein?

Whey protein is a complete source of protein having all essential amino acids including leucine. Leucine is an essential amino acid when it comes to muscle building and toning of the body. Thus, whey becomes the most popular source of protein! 

Bioavailability of whey is very high as compared to other protein sources making it a favourite.

Is Whey good for health?

A healthy adult requires 1-1.2g per kg body weight protein in a day depending on the physical activity. If you are into intense working out like athletes and sports person, the protein intake can go up to 1.5 g to 2g/per kg of body weight in a day. For example, an average man with a sedentary lifestyle whose weight is 60kgs requires 1g per kg body weight per day.

So, it is calculated as,

Weight x requirement of protein as per physical activity= Ideal protein intake per day.

As per the above example,

60 x 1= 60g per day.

Protein can be obtained from natural sources as well. If the person can get the ideal protein intake through natural foods, then he might not require a supplement for the same 

If the person is a vegetarian, he might need to add up a supplement because vegetarian sources have low bioavailability as compared to non-vegetarian sources.


Fitting his/her ideal protein requirement, 1-2 scoops per day can be taken to complete the requirement.

 

If a person does a heavy workout, there might be a need to alter the intake of whey protein depending upon the meal pattern they follow.

 

Will whey protein affect my kidney?

Whey protein is one of the most popular supplements on the planet.

However, despite its many health benefits, there’s some controversy surrounding its safety.

Some claim that too much whey protein can damage the kidneys and liver and even cause osteoporosis.
