Why protein powders are bad for the kidneys
Protein powder can pose a danger to the kidneys and liver when the daily dose exceeds the amount that the body can assimilate and use.
In fact, excess proteins are always degraded and eliminated through the urinary system.
It is therefore clear that when we take an excessive dose of protein powder compared to our needs, the excess quantity is eliminated from the body through the kidneys and the urinary system.
Precisely for this reason, protein supplementation, in itself useful in sports nutrition, must be carried out with care and precision, with the assistance of a dietician, who will be able to advise on the daily amount of protein powder to be taken, the quantity total weekly and monthly.
If the planning of the supplementation of protein powders is done correctly, their intake is completely risk-free and absolutely beneficial for the purpose of improving athletic performance.
Conversely, it could be risky in the long run.
In these cases, therefore, it is always good to rely on a good doctor and a good athletic trainer, who, working in tandem, will organize a correct integration of the powdered proteins.
