Is your whey protein killing you?

Today’s fast and urbanized world has compelled the human of today to be Modern and advanced as well. From super cars to high-rise buildings to even human body everything is changing and needing advancement. In all this race of superiority and perfection humans are fighting hard to look perfect no matter how much costs they have to offer for the same.

 If we talk about fitness industry of India, there has been a great change today. Gyms are everywhere and people are actually taking out time for it , thanks to the super concerned Indian male celebrities who inspire millions to go to gym and this never ending quest of attaining that perfect body is making Indians go very far. Today almost every Indian young men craves for six pack abs and biceps and in order to achieve the same they are less dependent on gym machines and more rely on supplements and steroids as most of them believe that these medicines are a magic pill which will melt all the fat from their body and give them that perfect celebrity body. 

Gone are those days when Indian people used to walk for miles in the open air to achieve fitness, well this tradition is only surviving on the shoulders of oldies as the newbie’s are only seen pumping in the gym. The most important thing to notice in all this is the crave to achieve the perfect glam body in shortest possible time and to get the things fast there are many fast ways out there which are either prescribed illegally or availed intentionally. India is still a developing country so it’s really tough to expect an urbanized fitness ideology. 

There are many gyms today but not a wide fitness consciousness which is also an important factor which lead to wrong practice of Indian fitness business. As anyone joins the gym the first thing most of the trainers advocate is taking supplements and the more the supplements the more the visible results and this theory is so seriously stated by trainers that the dummies first purchase that shit and later do the bicep curl and if the result is not coming, double the dosage or shift the brand. Most of these so called supplements are adulterated and fake and the reason behind that is no Indian production of the same.

 Almost all the supplements are imported today as India is still not so technologically advanced to produce high quality whey protein or creatine or casein, or cla etc. All these words may be known to today’s youngsters but for a common man they are just another English alien word they have heard first time. This unawareness gives chances to black market and illegal markets that replicate the same brands and their packaging and sell the fake supplements to the people. These fake supplements are mostly pushed by trainers and are easily accepted as every dummy beginner considers their trainer as the Greek god who has came to engulf him in the world of masculinity and heroism. Most of the fake supplements offer nothing but a jar of shit loaded with steroids which can even kill anyone but again illiteracy provokes them to trust such brands.

 Well there are millions of fake supplements scattered in gyms and shops and there is no serious way to detect them. There are very few importers who actually have licence and legal rights but still not everyone is aware about them. As usual the Indian food and drug authorities are silent and are not as serious as they were in the case of noodles. Well most of these supplements work wonders but you never know which one to trust so easily. Although there are wide range of American brands but still the purity is the absolute concern. 

The most important thing is that one does not know which supplement is causing a particular disease and mostly the one which is adulterated will never be caught as the only thing most of the fake supplements do is increase the heart rate and later on a severe heart attack which can be considered a consequence of many activities. There are two reasons for being crazy for these supplements .The first reason for being addicted to this protein shit is gains which are believed to be achieved by pure form of proteins, amino acids, glutamine and creatine and the second reason of getting addicted to them is fat loss which is believed to be achieved by alcar or l- carnitine, raspberry ketones, cla, omega 3 and caffeine. Frankly speaking all these elements are present in various foods like amino acids are found in eggs or L-carnitine is found in citrus fruits. If you carefully Google this shit you will get almost every fruit and vegetable which contains most of these things. On one hand Indians pay handsome amount on proteins and supplements and on the other hand the things which they search for in these supplements are already present in many veggies and fruits which are much cheaper then supplements and drugs. 

But again Indians have a tendency to act fast and act slave for imported junk so it’s really hard to change the established mindset of Indians which favours everything which is not manufactured in India. The easiest way to protect you from the torture of steroids and adulterated junk is to rely on natural things. You just need to search these items in natural food items which you can find online easily. Although these proteins and supplements are a quick way of getting benefits but again choose these supplements only when you are completely sure about the quality else forget them as your life matters more than your body.
