Is this inconsistent with whats been said of dairy compared to muscles meats by RPers?
RP was asked about it and he responded that extra calcium in milk minimizes
tryptophan to serotonin conversion. Milk also has many other nutrients
that are beneficial. The ratio of amino acids plays a big role. Amino acid composition
of casein cause very small increase in serotonin compared to other protein
source. Casein's tryptophan content is similar to muscle meat.
Casein also has anti-inflammatory property. Cheese protein would be
preferable in terms of amino acid ratio and tryptophan content.
One can also eat some gelatin with milk to improve the tryptophan ratio.
RP also mentioned that eating gelatin and extra calcium with
muscle meat can offset effect of excess phosphorus and tryptophan.
I have found adding calcium with muscle meat very beneficial.
I used to get hypo symptom when i ate steak without calcium.
RP also mentioned that major adverse effect of eating muscle
meat was result of excess phosphorus besides high tryptophan.
cysteine and methionine content.
