Proetein helps: Protein and glucagon are needed by muscles to grow. However, there are much healthier sources of protein than whey powder such as egg whites, nuts, beans, lentils and wild fish like salmon and sardines. Stick to the foods and avoid the whey from a factory. Some doctors think whey may contribute to cancer and auto-immune diseases like multiple sclerosis.
