It's fine: I'm pleased you're using this -- i bet you're also into fitness and specifically resistance training. I see you use an asthma inhaler -- fitness is one of the finest gifts you can give yourself. There's no reason to restrict protein is your kidneys are in good shape. Keep it up.

Nope: As long as it is good quality stuff and you're not allergic to milk protein you should be fine.
