｜How much protein should I come pensur day?
The recommended amount of protein intake varies among different populations. It can be evaluated based on your body weight and daily activity level.
Generally, it is suggested to consume around 1g of protein per 1kg of body weight. The daily protein requirement can be roughly determined according to the activity level as follows:
・Low activity level: Body weight multiplied by 0.8 (a sedentary lifestyle)
・Moderate activity level: Body weight multiplied by 1.6 (moderate physical activity or manual labor)
・High activity level: Body weight multiplied by 1.8 (intense physical activity or workout)
For example, if person A weighs 80kg and regularly engages in weight training at the gym, he would fall into the high activity level category. Hence, his daily protein requirement would be 80kg * 1.8 = 144g (daily protein intake).
According to the estimated national dietary intake, most people do not meet the minimum daily protein requirements. Therefore, protein supplements like Lutein can be suitable even for individuals without exercise routines but inadequate protein intake.
(※For special populations such as children under 13, individuals with chronic diseases, diabetes, or kidney-related conditions, it is advisable to consult a healthcare professional before use.)
｜What is the best time to take protein powder?
If you have a regular exercise routine, the optimal timing for protein supplementation would be before or after your workout. Consuming protein 1-2 hours before exercise helps enhance performance, while taking it within 30-60 minutes after exercise aids in muscle recovery. You can also choose to consume it between meals, such as during breakfast or lunchtime, to replenish nutrients without affecting regular meal intake.
In reality, the total protein intake and its distribution throughout the day are more crucial than strict timing, but dividing the protein consumption into multiple servings improves absorption.
｜I tend to break out when drinking protein shakes. Will Lutein cause the same issue?
Consuming animal-based concentrated whey protein may cause increased sebum production, which could lead to acne breakouts. However, Lutein's vegan formula, being a plant-based protein, reduces acne-promoting factors.
｜I want to supplement my protein intake but I have lactose intolerance. How should I choose protein supplements?
Dairy products and animal-based whey protein often contain lactose. Lactose intolerance occurs due to a deficiency in the enzyme lactase, which helps digest lactose. People with lactose intolerance experience gastrointestinal discomfort and diarrhea when consuming lactose-containing products.
Lutein's pure plant-based formula does not contain lactose, making it suitable for individuals with lactose intolerance. Soy protein isolate, one of the main ingredients, is less likely to cause bloating or diarrhea.
｜Can children consume Lutein protein?
Yes, children aged 13 and above can consume Lutein with a recommended daily intake of 1 tablespoon (half serving - 20g). However, as individual body conditions may vary, it is advisable to consult a healthcare professional.
｜Can individuals with kidney disease consume high protein?
Individuals with impaired kidney function have difficulty metabolizing protein. Therefore, their protein intake needs to be lower than usual. It is recommended to confirm and consult with a healthcare professional before consuming protein supplements.
｜Can vegetarians consume Lutein?
Yes, vegans can consume THE VEGAN Lutein as it is made from soy protein isolate and other plant-based ingredients, making it suitable for vegetarians.
｜Can pregnant women drink protein shakes?
When you are tired of consuming meat dishes, protein supplementation can provide an alternative source of quality protein. Whey protein can be a good option for vegetarian mothers, as their protein intake is generally lower than non-vegetarian individuals. Therefore, protein supplementation can be beneficial during pregnancy.
