SAFE: Yes, Whey protein is a safe/ healthy supplement when added to an already solid diet and exercise regimen. Whey protein contains easily digestible amino acids which can be quickly utilized by the body post work out to help rebuild muscle. The ratios of protein to calories and protein to fat in whey protein are far superior to most whole-food protein sources. Glutamine is an important amino acid.
