Whey protein side effects & known issues
Protein: slow digestion vs. fast digestion
Whey protein is rapidly digested, making it a good product to take after heavy exercise, as it is quickly utilised by the body. Hemp protein is slow digesting, making it ideal for supplementation between meals and before bedtime.
Whey protein with artificial ingredients and sweeteners
It is important to note that, unlike Good Hemp products, it is mixed with artificial ingredients and sweeteners in order to make it more palatable.These additional ingredients can detract from weight loss goals, cause sugar craving and suppress immune function.
Allergies and intolerances to whey
It can cause digestive disturbances and bloating in people who are lactose intolerant. Do not use it if you have a milk allergy. There have been no allergies or intolerances associated with hemp and hemp protein.
