Weight Gain Problem

Excessive weight gain is another negative effect of protinex powder that you need to be aware of before consuming  this health supplement. Some people wants to gain weight or muscles without exercise and in this case protinex may increase their weight and fat content rapidly. Since protinex is loaded with lots of calories so taking this powder in excess amount and without workout with increase your weight. We recommend you to take this powder in limit and go for a regular exercise daily to burn excess calories. By this way you will gain and maintain ideal body weight without any side effect.

Kidney problems

Kidney problems including kidney stones and kidney faliure are other side effects of consuming excessive protinex powder. As you know, our kidney helps eliminate waste products in the form of urine from our body. Intake of too much protinex results in waste buildup in the body. In this case, kidneys are unable to eliminate these waste products which results in conditions like stones and even kidney faliure.

Indigestion or Digestive Problems

Taking lot of protinex powder will result in indigestion and if you are not taking an adequate dose of fiber then you  will have to face other digestive troubles like diarrhea, constipation, abdominal cramps, heartburn nausea etc. You can avoid these problem by taking your protein supplement in moderation and including water and ample amount of fiber in to your diet.


Your body requires lots of water to metabolize protein and to flush out waste byproducts from the body. So consuming excess proteinx powder, doing workout  and not drinking ample amount of water will result in dehydration. Headache, burning urination, yellow urine, dry mouth are some common signs of dehydrated body.
