Supplements Made Simple - Whey Protein

This is adapted from the book, Eat Smart, Play Hard, by RW USA Nutrition Editor Liz Applegate.

A by-product of cheese production, whey protein can supposedly build muscle mass and be absorbed more easily than other proteins. But no research supports such claims.

My recommendation: Until studies find any promise for this supplement, save your money and instead consume your protein from foods such as soy, seafood, eggs, low-fat dairy products, and lean meats.
