ASK AbFitt..... Protein powders & cholesterol?

Dear AbFitt,

While supplementing with protein powder, should one be concerned with the added cholesterol?

Thanks in advance,

If you already have a history of high cholesterol I would definitely monitor your intake closely along with your doctor. In otherwise healthy adults who supplement with shakes I see no reason for concern. Remember not all cholesterol is bad! Mix up your protein sources and do not depend on shakes alone. Balance with everything is the key to your health & fitness.
