A 31-year-old female asked:

Is it safe to drink powdered muscle milk in the third trimester? i read up how some advised not to drink the vanilla one, because its too high in metal intake.. something silly like that. just curious because im trying to get my weight gain back?

Powdered milk is safe to drink any time. Vanilla is just flavoring. If in doubt read the labeling and if the product has other ingredients switch to one which has none.
