What's the best brand/supplement you can use to gain muscle mass? Creatine, protein powder, etc.

Egg whites: Egg whites are pure protein. Creatine is fairly safe as long as you drink plenty of water, but many complain of midsection swelling. Other supplements are unproven and possibly dangerous. I see lots of kidney stones, liver problems, heart problems, and hormone imbalances caused by things that do work, but are dangerous. ...Read more

PLANT PROTEIN: READ THE LIST OF VEGETABLES, BEANS AND FOODS WITH PROTEIN AND EAT THEM INSTEAD OF A PROTEIN POWDER.EGGS ARE ONE OF THE BEST SOURCE. DISCARD THE YELLOWS IF YOU EAT MORE THAN ONE A DAY.

No powders, please: Instead of protein powder, just choose high protein foods. One can search the web for lists of high protein foods, and select the ones that have lowest sugar or lowest starch, and not too much animal fat. Nuts have protein and fat, and their fat is considered better than animal fat. If worried, a primary care doctor can evaluate to be sure thinness isn't due to a medical problem. ...Read more
