Is America’s love affair with protein the reason you suffer from digestive issues like: Constipation, bloating, gas, stomach problems, diarrhea, acid reflux or heartburn?
According to Doctors and Health Scientists, high protein consumption may be a ticking Time Bomb for developing colon, pancreatic and Esophugul problems!
Researcher Robert RIess says…“ traditional digestive aids in the USA have not kept pace with America’s changing diet. Americans eat an abnormally high amount of chicken and red meat PLUS a experience a deficiency in fruits and vegetables. A high protein rich diet has a negative impact on your weight control and digestive system not to mention many other health ailments.
In the Huffington Post, a researched article states that “Americans eat nearly 50 billion burgers a year, which translates to three burgers a week for every single person in the United States. That’s a lot of beef.”
The latest statistics from the department of Agriculture shows that Americans ate an average 71.2 pounds of red meat (beef, veal, pork, and lamb) and 54.1 pounds of poultry (chicken and turkey).
Marketing research company, Packaged facts states that - Meat's popularity is expected to keep rising, with U.S. sales seen just shy of the $100 billion mark in four years.
Why is Protein Consumption Increasing?
The reason is the increase of meat-focused diets like paleo and keto, Unfortunately, the days of worrying about a meat induced heart attack have all but disappeared.
This love-affair with protein may lead to the single biggest health disaster the USA has ever seen.
Healthine Health News website writes:
“While there are potential benefits to a high protein diet like increased satiety and muscle retention, it’s important to be aware of the risks.”
- Weight gain
High-protein diets that promise weight loss may only be short term. Excessive protein is stored as fat. If you are not working it off, then weight gain results.
- Bad breath
Eating excessive amounts of protein leads to bad breath
In a recent study, 44% of participants reported constipation. This is because high-protein diets that restrict carbohydrates are typically low in fiber
Eating too much dairy and processed is associated with a lack of fiber in your diet can cause.
A Study done by the FEDERATION OF AMERICAN SOCIETIES FOR EXPERIMENTAL BIOLOGY concluded that- “ A diet high in protein silently caused dehydration in endurance athletes, individuals whose training gave them a greater capacity to adapt to dehydration than the average person.”
- Kidney damage
A high-protein diet boosts your risk of kidney damage due to the excess nitrogen found in the amino acids that make up proteins.
- Heart problems
Eating large amounts of red meat may lead to heart disease because of higher amounts of saturated fat and cholesterol.
- Calcium loss
Diets that are high in protein and meat may cause a loss of calcium associated with osteoporosis and poor bone health.
What’s a normal amount of protein?
For the average man, it is estimated at approximately 56 grams (2 oz) and for women 46 grams.
People who exercise primarily with weights or body weight for more than one hour most days of the week may need up to 1.2 to 1.7 grams per kilogram of body weight.
If Excessive Protein Consumption Causes Digestive Distress,
What Are Our Alternatives?
Robert Riess says “regular proteins like red meat, lamb, chicken, eggs and dairy are NOT the best proteins for your body. They cannot be absorbed in your bloodstream and instead get caught up in your intestine and fat cells. As a result, this is causing constipation, weight gain, heartburn and bloating- let alone the longer term consequences mentioned above.
According to Oddrun Anita Gudbrandsen, a Researcher at Bergen Medical Research Foundation in Norway says, “We are completely dependent on getting protein through food and drink, but did you know that there may be big differences between different types of proteins?
Proteins not only provide nutrition and energy, they can also contain short sequences of amino acids that can have almost magical effects on body and health.
"At Haukeland University Hospital and the University of Bergen in Norway, research has been done for a long time on the health benefits of the fish's proteins, specifically Norwegian Salmon.
Results of Salmon Protein Studies Considered Ground Breaking by Scientists and Doctors Worldwide
Muscle building and burning of fat
Salmon peptides play a role in muscle building. The salmon peptides amino acids may act as a key that opens the GLUT 4 port into the muscle cells. When opened, glucose is released into the muscle cells. Thus, sugar becomes energy in the muscle cells instead of fat in the fat cells.
- Increase energy metabolism
"Clinical studies reveal that salmon peptides play a role in the production of bile acids in the body. Bile acids increase energy metabolism in the brown fat cells, which inhibits obesity (increases fat burning) and reduces blood sugar. “
3. Blood Sugar
The salmon peptides can also play a role in stabilizing blood sugar after meals. Regular intake can give you more energy in everyday life! They should therefore be taken together with the main meals (lunch and dinner) every day.
Several studies indicate that those suffering from irritated and inflamed bowel have problems with the protein glue that binds the intestinal cells together. It can lead to inflammation-like conditions. The salmon peptides have been shown to help rebuild the protein glue, dampen inflammation and stimulate the immune system.
