Whey protein and lactose intolerance
by: Derrell Jones
Many people are interested in shedding fat and building lean muscle essentially sculpting their bodies into works of art or maybe looking for a slimmed down version of their current selves. The benefits of being a little leaner these days help with many conditions such has diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular health and cholesterol to name a few. After all, sculpting lean muscle is the surest way to sustained, long term weight loss with the added benefit of increased health. One of the most highly visible nutritional regimens used in helping to develop lean muscle is the use of proteins and plenty of it with whey protein usually leading the way in most protein supplements.Why Whey Protein is so popular
Whey protein's dominance is not by accident and can be found in liquid and powder supplements just about anywhere. Why? The reason is because whey protein tends to be cheap because of a plentiful supply and dairy subsidies. The importance of this is twofold. First, non-organic or non-natural whey protein comes from milk of the same description which contributes to hormone and anti-biotic exposure and increased inflammation. Second, and most important for the sake of this writing, is that many people who suffer from lactose intolerance can experience mild to moderate discomfort from using products containing whey protein. That is because most whey protein supplements contain constituents of lactose and cause digestive trouble for more than a few. Unless the manufacturer takes steps to remove the lactose one may expect to have problems. The process of extracting and removing lactose from whey while also purifying and concentrating it is known as the miceller process and has served those suffering from lactose intolerance well.Other protein sources
There are some things that people suffering from lactose intolerance can do. Ultra purified and lactose free whey protein is one option and is an excellent choice for most people. Some other alternatives can include pea protein which is usually of high quality and is great for vegans to use as well. Another alternative is chia protein which contains nine essential amino acids. It is highly nutritious and is once again a great resource for vegans. All three of these proteins are highly digestible limiting the occurrence of inflammation traditionally associated with protein use as long over consumption (more than 40 grams per day for men and 35 grams for women) does not occur. For those who are serious about sculpting a lean body try a product that contains all three to synergistically create a fat burning dynamo. Whatever a person decides to use ensure the sources are pure and free of harmful contaminants like pesticides, fungicides and herbicides.
Getting the protein your body needs does not have to cause discomfort and settling for inferior proteins is not necessary. Find a reputable source and build the body that is best for your health.Sources for this article include:http://www.chialive.com.au/Chia-Complete-Protein.htmlhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whey_proteinhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pea_proteinAbout the author:
