We already told you heaps about proteins in general but what exactly is The Right Dose Of Protein. There are some things to keep in mind that’s why we’ll bring you a little overview about the most important things.
The Right Dose Of Protein
First a Golden Rule: Scientist recommend to have one gram of protein per kilogram of bodyweight per day. This is a rule for an average human being. For athletes this rule can be exceeded to 1.5 gram of protein per kilogram of bodyweight. This rule covers the whole needs of proteins per day of a human therefor it should be a mix between natural proteins and supplements.
The right mix of natural proteins and supplements
We recommend to cover the basic needs of proteins with natural proteins which in that case is about 1 gram of protein per kilogram of bodyweight. Everything that goes beyond that can be covered by supplements meaning 1.5 gram of proteins if you are an athlete and need other sources of proteins.
A lot of athletes believe that the protein shakes are enough liquid for your body which is not the case. Beside that you should have about 3 litres of water each day when consuming more proteins than necessary.
The exact dose for a protein shake shall be about 30 gram of protein powder per 300 ml of water. You can also partly replace the water by some milk. You should also keep in mind that 100 gram of whey protein contain about 77% of protein.
The risks of too many proteins
Back in the day scientist believed that too many proteins could damage your kidneys. That can still be the case but only if you exaggerate the consume of proteins by far. Additionally, there is still the risk of not consuming enough liquid. If that is the case your body can not get rid of the unnecessary ingredients of the protein powder and those therefore remain in your body.
We hope that this was a helpful overview of The Right Dose Of Protein. If there are any questions or remarks don’t hesitate to leave a comment!
