Each of them has advantages and disadvantages, which include having some possible side effects for those who are allergic in some foods. Consulting a health expert is highly being recommended.

Dosage or amount of consumption of whey protein and the best time to take them mainly depend on your goal and physical activities. This is why it is very important to know how to choose the right one for you.
