The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie, deliberate, contrived and dishonest, but the myth, persistent, persuasive and unrealistic.’
Supplements and Proteins are the most misunderstood and highly controversial topic today. Side effects, organ failure, hormonal imbalance, acne, hair fall etc are commonly associated with these supplements.
Unfortunately, none of these rumors are proved to be true. There is no evidence which proves that these supplements are unsafe.
HALF TRUTH IS MORE DANGEROUS THAN FULL LIE
Then how did this misunderstanding start?
Appointing a clinical nutritionist in a gym or sport nutrition sector creates confusion in the heads of people. A clinical nutritionist or a doctor is not qualified and aware about the supplements.
On one other side a sports nutritionist or fitness professional will encourage the intake of supplements for muscle growth and repair where as professional in the clinical sectors will discourage the intake of them.
Fear is an intuition of man who keeps triggering the mind when he doesn’t know. Misleading information and wrong guidance from health professionals fuel the fear of the human mind.
STEROIDS ARE DIFFERENT FROM SUPPLEMENTS
Association of STEROIDS and SUPPLEMENTS creates perplexity and eventually leads to THE BIRTH OF CONFUSION.
Steroids greatly increases the testosterone levels, tremendously increases the muscle growth, anabolism. Since, these steroids increases the hormonal levels to a higher level than the normal physiological levels, side effects are possible.
Although, these STEROIDS ARE ILLEGAL AND BANNED, they are still used by the body builders. This has proved to be the biggest annoyance on the supplement industry.
Hearing the side effects of the steroids have misted up the minds of public. Their mind strongly associates supplement with a steroid which is absolutely wide of the mark.
IS WHEY PROTEIN POWDER SAFE?
YES! INDEED THEY ARE ABSOLUTELY SAFE
SUPPLEMENTS ARE SAFE AND NATURAL UNLIKE STEROIDS
Supplements are the natural extracts made from milk, fruits, nuts, oilseeds, fish oil etc in the form of powder, pill or a tablet.
If supplements have side effects then,
Why does a doctor give iron, folic acid and calcium supplements during the pregnancy?
Why do you add flavours in the milk for kids to increase their height?
Why is a lady asked to have calcium supplement after her menopause?
Think about it. Are they not supplements?
- Food SUPPLEMENTS are INCAPABLE OF SIDE EFFECTS.
- They FULFILL YOUR DAILY BODY’S REQUIREMENTS
- THEY IMPROVE THE NUTRITIVE VALUE OF THE DIET
It’s totally insane when people question if whey protein powder safe or not and without hesitation consume alcohol.
Why isn’t anybody talking about side effects of high body fat?
What are the reasons for diabetes, and hypertension which is affecting the metabolism?
Increases catabolism, damages organs, causes of hormonal imbalance?
India is one of the leading countries of obesity and now soon will be the leading diabetic nation. All thanks to our modified diet which is full of refined foods and high sugar without any nutrititive value.
In this case SUPPLEMENTS bridges the gap between the LACK AND REQUIREMENTS.
