Sure: Be sure they're mixed up by someone reputable -- strange things have been discovered at some gyms. Best wishes.

Sure!: Sounds like he is wanting to build some lean muscle as is typical for teenage boys, keep an eye on his total protein intake which should not be more than 1.4 mg/k/day. 0.8 to 1 mg/kg/day is adequate protein intake. Good luck! Great to see your teen interested in nutrition!
