Reason Why Middle-Aged Men Should Limit Their Protein Intake

Reason Why Middle-Aged Men Should Limit Their Protein Intake”

As popular and widespread as diets based on high-protein intake are nowadays, a new Finnish study says that diets like the Ketogenic and Atkins diets could potentially cause several heart-related issues in middle-aged men.

A high-protein diet could increase the risk of heart failure in middle-aged men, suggests a research.

"As many people seem to take for granted the benefits of high protein diets, it is important to clarify the risks and benefits of this type of diet", said Jyrki Virtanen, author of the study and assistant professor of nutrition, nutritional epidemiology at the University of Eastern Finland in Kuopio. After that, the scientists watched them for 22 years, during which 330 participants were diagnosed with heart failure.

The study stated that consumption of animal protein was found to increase the risk consumption of animal protein by 43 per cent, while eating plant protein raised the risk by 17 per cent.

Previously it was thought that a diet rich in protein, including animal origin, has on the body are beneficial.

"Higher intake of protein from most dietary sources, was associated with slightly higher risk".

However, average people who don't exercise or exercise to stay in good shape should get between 0.75-1 gram of protein per kilogram of body weight.

As reported in the journal Circulation: Heart Failure, scientists gathered almost 2,500 middle-aged men and followed them for an average of 22 years.

For this study, the researchers divided the men into four groups based on their daily protein intake. The findings were reported in Circulation: Heart Failure. During the study, there were 334 cases of heart failure.

The authors of the study concluded that as there is now little research on the link between dietary protein and heart failure risk, further research is needed before they can say that moderating protein intake would help to prevent it.

Speaking on Today Extra, Dr Brad McKay explained most people don't need to go on a high-protein diet because the amount you need each day is probably less than you think.
