excess protein

The negative effects of excess protein


Protein is one of the most commonly supplemented macronutrients, because it's relatively cheap, has many health benefits and is commonly propagated as a meal replacement. What most people don't realize though is that too much protein (usually in the form of protein shakes) can actually have adverse health effects. These negative consequences range from reduced kidney efficiency to weight gain.
