Hi there! First of all, I’m sorry for my English, is not my main language.
I have a question about protein based on something I’ve read, but I don’t know if it’s true.
When you take too much protein, the body cannot absorb all the amino acids, so these amino acids are going to make the blood more acid, and calcium is extracted from bones to neutralize this acidity, leading to osteoporosis. Can it be true?
I too have seen this said, but there is also a deal of research linking a too low protein intake with osteopenic-related fractures in elderly; indeed, there’s concern that the RDAs are too low.
@Phil_C is correct and sufficient calcium is important (Huel is high in calcium), as it vitamin D and impact exercise (eg walking). A good omega-3 intake to reduce inflammation is also important for protection.
