Confused About Protein And Aminos

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.....
