Protein Supplements: Risk of Dehydration or Bone Loss?
Question: Is it true that I need to drink more water or increase calcium intake when supplementing with protein powder?
Answer: No, these are myths that have been disproven. While it's always important to stay hydrated and get the recommended amount of calcium from your diet, there is no evidence that healthy adults need to increase fluid or calcium intake when taking protein supplements, as explained in the Concerns and Cautions section of the Protein Supplements Review.
