: I'm 17, and I work out. I'm thinking about using Protein supplements to help me gain some muscle mass.
: I've got a few questions I want answered before I go out and get some.

: 1 - Is protein supplements safe to use over very long periods of time (say, 10 years) ?

: 2 - How much should I take per day ?

: 3 - Is it possible to overdose ?

: 4 - Do some protein powders have creatine in it?
: If so, will it be labeled ? The last thing I want
: to take is Creatine.....

: 5 - Will it really help me gain strength and mass faster than usual ?

If you really want to put on mass, you should consume at least 1 gram of protein for every pound you weigh per day, as this is the standard practice amongst body-builders. There are a few proteins that incorporate creatine into their formula--just check the label before buying it to see if it does. As for overdosing, I've never heard of any cases where an athlete was injured or out of commission due to excess protein-some weight-lifters consume up to 400 grams a day or more. you might want to shop around on the internet to see which brand fits into your budget and dietary needs.
