Before taking bodybuilding supplements, it is important to realise that they are not suddenly going to make you huge. That would just be wishful thinking.

It becomes crucial for the body to receive adequate amount of proteins as our body neither manufactures nor stores it. And this can be ensured only when the body is able to digest protein properly. Taking carbohydrates and other sugars into consideration, their digestion starts right from the time they are in the mouth. However, this is not the case with proteins. Their digestion begins in the stomach with the help of hydrochloric acid that converts pepsinogen into pepsin. It is further continued in the intestines by the enzymes, trypsin and chymotrypsin. The proteins are digested to release amino acids. However, being one of the largest molecules of food, protein does not get digested easily. But there are some tips you can follow to improve your ability to digest protein.
Ways to Enhance Digestion of Protein
One of the most recommended methods to enhance the way protein is digested is eating small, frequent meals. Most of us stick to the habit of taking three heavy meals a day. As mentioned above, proteins are hard to digest; usually, it may take 3 hours or more for complete digestion. So eating frequently creates a suitable environment for protein absorption. Try eating a meal consisting of meat and vegetables, and later, one with carbs in it. Frequent eating gives enough time for the gastric acid to digest a good portion of the meat, and the pancreas and saliva can also secrete enough enzymes needed for digestion. Read more »

Urinary tract infections, also known as UTIs, are the most common bacterial infections in people of all ages. There are 3 common types of infections of the urinary tract. Cystitis (infection of the bladder), pyelitis (infection of the kidneys), and urethritis (infection of the urethra - the tube that leads from the bladder to the exterior of the body). Most UTIs affect the bladder only.
UTIs are usually caused by bacteria that enter the body through the urethra and occur much more often in women than men. Women have a shorter urethra than do men and the anus and vagina openings are close to the urethra opening, which allows bacteria easy access to the urethra. In men, bacteria can reach the bladder either by moving up through the urethra or by migrating from an infected prostate gland. Read more »
