Should I be using protein supplements at the age of 15?

I have been working out for about a year. I am a man. I recently got the protein supplement Myoplex from a friend at school and I have been wondering if it’s right for me. It contains plenty of ingredients but most of them seem to be vitamins and minerals. I am still going through puberty and I don’t know if I should be using protein supplements at this age. I think I might just stick to chicken and other meat for my sources of protein.

    If you are eating right, supplements shouldn’t be necessary. A very good source of protein is peanut butter.

  3. Your to young for protein drinks unless prescribed by a doctor To much protein can damage your vital organs and cause you problems later in life. You can alsways talk to a health care person but your body is still growing and maturing if your in good health why rock the boat

  4. No do not take protein supplement. Lots of people take them when they shouldn’t be. Our diets include lots of protein it’s difficult to not get enough. Please don’t take them. Tell your friend to stop as well. He (or she) is wasting their time and money.
