keto meal planning for beginners
Helps reduce inflammation Another potential benefit of whey protein for your health is that it reduces inflammation. While inflammation is the body’s survival mechanism and helps with repair, prolonged
(or chronic) inflammation is linked to diseases like obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. A meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials showed that whey protein may reduce circulating C-reactive protein (CRP), a protein made by your liver and sent to your bloodstream during inflammation. Another 2019 study done on critically ill patients with ischemic stroke found that whey protein supplementation reduced inflammatory markers after 3 weeks, which could improve their health outcomes. How to Take Whey Protein on KetoWhey protein can be taken daily or every few days as a post-workout supplement, snack, or meal replacement (if you’re too busy to prepare a healthy keto-friendly meal from scratch). There’s no definitive rule as to the number of servings to consume per day. Those who consume whey protein usually take 1-2 scoops, equivalent to 25-50 grams of protein, which should be fine. Keep in mind that the more active and older you are, the higher your protein requirements. Here’s a tip: Try adding one tablespoon (about 14 grams) of medium-chain triglycerides or MCTs to your whey protein shake for a ketone and energy boost. Are There Downsides to Whey Protein?Whey protein is generally safe. However, some people who are allergic
or intolerant to milk may develop rashes, hives, diarrhea, and other digestive symptoms when consuming whey.
