I don't believe one should get protein from dairy and prefer non-animal sources like quinoa, nuts and beans. I also like wild salmon for protein and mostly healthy fats. Books like the china study demonize whey and claim it causes cancer and autoimmune disease. No one knows for sure so use other sources. ...Read more

Creatine builds muscle but with all protein you MUST drink alot of water since it is hard on the kidneys. ...Read more

Also, since no third party testing of their product is required - the ingredients listed don't even have to match what is in the bottle. Wish I had a better answer. .. Good luck! ...Read more
