Doctor: HelloWelcome to Ask The Doctor.We don’t recommend any whey protein or any powder, or any supplement for body build ing purposes.It has been seen that they can be harmful. Moreover, you don’t know what is the actual composition of the supplement you are using.I would advise you to go naturally.Increase protein, fruits, egg white, boiled chicken in the diet.These supplements are not advised by any doctor.I hope it helps.Stay Healthy
