Good supplement: Safe if not in excess and no other metabolic problems such liver or kidney disease. Protein increase lean muscle, decrease fat, and increase energy as well as supports the immune system. additon 16 to 32 grams of protein a day is safe. Have baseline PE and labs with your PCP, prior to any new exercise program or supplement especially if you are over 35.
