    Whey for teenage athletes?

    Yes, it's fine. Basically, it's a concentrated form of milk, it's a natural food, not some weird supplement that will cause your bits to shrivel up.

    One scoop after intense exercise is an extremely useful aid to recovery. More than that is a waste.

    Ideally, take it with a small amount of carbohydrate to assist your muscles using it most effectively.
