Side Effects from the Consumption of Proteins

Proteins are the nutrients that help to build muscle, strip away excess weight, give energy, but it all when they are in balance with other useful carbohydrates from your diet and replacing them with foods rich in protein, can have negative consequences not only on the function of the kidneys, but on the whole organism.

Bad breath

When you consume minimal amounts of carbohydrates, the body goes into a state called ketosis. The process of burning fat instead of carbs is great when you want to lose weight, but not breathtaking.When the body burns excess fat, it produces chemicals called ketones. Even frequent brushing can help you deal with bad breath.

Hello Friends...

Protein isn’t particularly dangerous, but an over-consumption of protein may be related with:

  1. Weight gain. Excess calories from excess protein may be stored as body fat.
  2. Intestinal irritation. Too much protein has been linked to constipation, diarrhea and/or excessive gas.
  3. Dehydration. Experts advise drinking a half gallon of water per 100 grams of protein.
  4. Seizures. Seizures have been linked to excess protein intake – but only if insufficient amounts of water are consumed.
  5. Increase in liver enzymes.
  6. Nutritional deficiencies. Just focusing on protein intake causes some high-protein dieters to overlook other nutrients. Ensure that your diet is balanced and nutritious.
  7. Risk of heart disease. This is a bit misleading. A healthy high-protein diet is not associated with heart disease. But if you are getting all of your protein from unhealthy sources that are loaded in unhealthy fats, obviously the risk for heart disease will increase.
  8. Kidney problems. Some believe that high protein and low carbohydrate diets – when done long term – can possibly cause kidney issues, but more research needs to be done.

While this list may seem alarming, it’s important to remember that many of these side effects are only related with highly excessive protein diets coupled with unbalanced nutrition and/or dehydration. And this list pales in comparison to the side effects of protein deficiency, which includes general illness, loss of hair, loss of sleep, poor coordination, vision problems, etc...
