TikTok: an app where, in just a few swipes, you can go from the latest dance trend to someone dry-scooping pre-workout or from cringe-worthy celebrity interviews to viral sleep hacks. The frighteningly popular video app markets itself as a place for everyone to be themselves, learn something new and try new things, with thousands of videos going viral due to their confusing nature.© Provided by Men's Health UK Here's why two doctors aren't so sure about the protein and coffee blend
The latest culprit? A TikTok user posting about 'Proffee' — protein mixed with coffee, made by adding a scoop of protein powder to espresso and poured over ice. It's thought (and agreed upon by other TikTok users) that the blend of muscle-building sports supps and energy-spiking caffeine boosts energy levels and, more dubiously, burns more calories.
Doctors and health experts, however, are warning that this new 'blend' could cause irregular heart rhythms and excess sugar intake.
"If you're taking a few shots of espresso, that could be a lot of caffeine. It's like having three cups of coffee," Andrea Chernus of Chernus Nutrition explained to the Daily Mail.
"Depending on how your body metabolises coffee, it may stay in your system longer. That can affect your heart rate, cause arrhythmias and it may not be so great for the heart to be pounding down shots of expresso."
