Re: too much amino acids?

A good Whey Protien contains almost all the amino acids. Get one without artificial sweetners (most have them). I like Jay Robbs, been using it for serveral months. Seems to make me feel better. But I would say with any food, herb, etc. of course there is a point where your body has enough and oversupplementation doesn't help. How do you find that point? I don't know! I do know that this is Protein, so I measure that point by the number of Grams of protien consumed per lb of weight. Each scoop of Jay Robb has about 24 grams. A sedentary person isupposedly needs .5g per lb of body weight. A very active person up to 1gm. Jay Robb (whom I don't work for also has Egg Protien which tastes the same to me). You can get it in flavors or unflavored.

IF ANYONE KNOWS OF A DOWNSIDE TO SUPPLEMENTING 25 GRAMS OF WHEY PROTEIN PER DAY PLEASE POST.
