Confused About Protein And Aminos
0

7 posts in this topic

I want to start taking a protein supplement because my diet low in protein. I tried a few whey protein powders so far but they (like everything else)bothered my stomach. Would taking amino acid caps do the same thing for me as taking protein powder? My main goal is to provide my muscles and connective tissues with what they need to recover from an injury.

Have you tried other protein powders? Perhaps dairy isn't so easy on your digestion, or you're intolerant/allergic to some degree. I prefer pea protein, but there's also rice protein and hemp protein. However, what about including more protein into your diet to begin with? There are many choices, including peas, beans, lentils, some grains such as amaranth, quinoa, and teff, and if you eat animal products there's eggs and meats.

As far as amino acid supplements, it does sound like it should be effective. Since the body doesn't really use whole proteins as they're ingested, but the digestive system breaks them down into the basic amino acids before absorption. However, the sources of the amino acids in a given supplement might present a problem, depending on what you're sensitive to.

Dairy can be a hard one. I'd try some others. I've liked both hemp protein powder and pumpkin seed, but have also used rice (it's cheaper).

I just looked up some of those different protein powders and I think I am going to try the hemp next. Thanks for the info!! I guess it couldn't hurt to take an amino acid supp too. I will also try to eat more meat.

I found the hemp protein to be inedible...Maybe see if you can get a sample?

Why don't you eat more naturally high-protein foods like egg whites and chicken breast? Processed foods are so hard to tolerate compared to natural foods. I've gotten very suspicious of anything that comes in a can or a carton. :lol:

I agree. I eat a lot of eggs (I have had my cholesterol tested & it's fine). I have one egg a day @ breakfast & often egg salad for lunch (2 eggs, only 1 yolk). The yolk does have some good stuff in it.

Buy boxed chicken breast that you can take out individually. Buy quinoa - it's gluten free.

IMHO, natural source (ie. real food) is always better than some processed supplement. You don't need a lot of protein but you do need a bit throughout the day - I try to eat a bit at every snack/meal.

Peanut butter, almond butter.......yum.....

    • Why would your PCP go against the advice of leading celiac researchers and the American and British GI Associations?  The endoscopy/biopsy is still the gold standard for diagnosing celiac disease.     I understand your daughter's  situation, but I would get a second opinion from a GI before going gluten free.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ http://gut.bmj.com/content/early/2014/06/10/gutjnl-2013-306578.long#T2 http://www.worldgastroenterology.org/guidelines/global-guidelines/celiac-disease/celiac-disease-english  
    • It might not be Celiac, if your tests are negative.  Have you been to a doctor and been tested for diabetes or thyroid issues lately?  What are your parents doing about your issues?  Some things like acne and shin splints might be explained by age or activity, but passing out and depression need to be addressed.
    • I will visit  Johannesburg  international airport, is there any gluten free food available? The so called customer service office did not answer my question! So I am taking it to the forum. If you know of any restaurants inside the airport please let me know.  
    • I will visit Beijing international airport, is there any gluten free food available? The so called customer service office did not answer my question! So I am taking it to the forum. If you know of any restaurants inside the airport please let me know.  
    • Instead of going to my doctor I went to theranos to get a celiac blood test done. Doctors never seem to want to hear about you diagnosing yourself so I decided against going to the doctor . So my symptoms are/were being bloated after eating, stomach pain, constipation, also diahrea (my poop is always green ik tmi), bad anxiety, depression, irritability, insomnia and anger after consuming a big meal of gluten, I also have a rash on my right leg below my butt I don't think it's dh tho, I'm always thirsty (like I can't get enough water), dizzy spells (fainting and blacking out), my left side of my face tingles (could do with anxiety), my face also feels hot after consuming gluten, I have acne, hip pain and shin inflammation, back pain, and dandruff. My theranos results came back negative with everything ranging from 0-3 so it was super low. I had the celiac panal done. Well anyways I thought maybe it's wrong and went off gluten anyways. This is my 6 day gluten free and my symptoms haven't resolved at all really. My bloating has lessened a tiny bit but I still get bloated after every meal. And im constipated all the time. My poop stopped being green though. I'm not eating dairy right now either. I'm also having worse anxiety and am still depressed. If Im gluten sensitive shouldn't I be feeling better by now? I also live in a house with gluten eating people sense im only 15 but I try hard not to cross contaminate. I eat lots of veggies  (Kale and salads) and lots of nuts and beans and indulge salmon and tuna a few times a week and eat quinoa every morning for breakfast. I'm scared I'm not gluten sensitive and I don't know what to do.
