Unlock Your Hip Flexors Review

This article will do that as well and Unlock Your Hip Flexors explain some of the dangers that whey has to offer. Basically the dangers of whey protein are related to the consumption levels. For the people who take a shake every now and then it will not present any dangers. However for those who take it several times in a day and over a long period of time it can definitely lead to the following dangers Danger to the kidney Whey protein is not easily digested. Thus if one were to consume a lot of it and not exercise accordingly protein will be available in excess which will then need to be processed by the kidneys. Over a long period of time there have been some cases where protein consumption was linked with a kidney failure. A kidney failure is however rare and more often than not the kidneys are rather affected by disease. Danger to the liver Another key organ in the body that is directly affected when there is too much of a certain substance in the body is the liver. High levels o whey protein in the body will lead to an increase in the ketone level in the blood which can cause ketosis of the liver. Again this is something that happens over a long period of time. Imbalance of essential minerals A heavy intake of whey protein can create an imbalance in the chemical composition of the body. Studies have indicated that the mineral bone density has the potential to be affected with repeated consumption of whey protein. It can also lead to the formation of uric acid in the muscles and bones of the body. The result of these accumulations will be rigidness and pain in the bones and muscles. This form of rigidness and joint pain is called gout and it is very common among professional bodybuilders who take ridiculous amounts of whey protein in their everyday diet. As you can see most of the dangers related to whey are related to a very high and constant intake over a long period of time. If you however are taking a few shakes in a week to aid your workouts it should not really be able to do much harm.
