Protein shake to build muscle

Fitness and bodybuilding exercises are in vogue. Through this type of sport, the aim is, among other objectives, to turn body fat into muscle. To achieve this, it is essential to take in extra protein. However, we must be careful with the way in which the extra supply of protein is made. Its vital not to forget or replace the good eating habits.

A healthy and balanced diet is essential for the proper human development. Replacing meals with protein shakes can have serious health implications and become a dangerous fad.

The contraindications of protein shake

The key to health is balanced diet. An excessive consumption of protein shakes can lead to metabolic disorders, especially in the liver and kidneys. The liver has to work hard to metabolize the excess protein and the kidneys have to clean more waste than usual. It is important to control the amount of protein shakes consumption and not to abuse them. It will be treated as a food supplement and must be regulated by a nutrition specialist. In this way, exhaustion and subsequent weakening of the liver and kidneys due to overwork will be avoided.
