Protein Supplements


Protein supplements are often used for building muscle or increasing strength.

Research Results:

Well-controlled clinical studies do not support these benefits. Even the highest protein requirements can be met with food. Consuming protein beyond your needs will not increase your muscle size. The excess is stored as fat or burned for energy.
