Your body is pretty good at dealing with both extremes (too much and too little) of protein. So it's not something to worry about too much. If you're trying to pack on the muscle, you'll want to have much more so that you have building blocks... (more)

It seems I get a bet of nausea and acid reflux right after a drink cream on an empty stomach. I use ecological cream and I take lactrase enzymes with it so that the lactose won't be a problem. Why do I get this symptoms?

Michele_7 0 · April 24, 2013 at 1:23 PM

Lactose may not be the problem. Lots of people cannot tolerate casein, which is a protein found in milk. There is no pill to reduce casein, like there is for lactose. A big dose of fat on an empty stomach may cause reflux.
