Cardiologist Questions Protein shakes

Can regular intake of protein shakes cause a strain on my heart?

I am 38 year old man and I am into heavy workouts and going to the gym. I drink protein shakes quite regularly to help me build up some muscle. I would like to know if this excessive amount of protein could be causing any strain on my heart. Should I look for an alternative, if so?

As long as your kidney function is normal, you can excrete the excess protein easily. I would advise you against hormonal /steroid intake though as they can cause heart failure.
Yes, depends on the ingredients, must know.
