    If I were to recommend a single supplemental protein it would be Select
    http://www.orbitnutrition.com/cart/p...t-protein.html

    That said you should be getting as much from whole food choices as you can

    Eggs, eggwhites, chicken breast, lean beef, hell even jerkey if on the go.

    No such thing as age-specific protein. But nothing beats a whey/casein blend...like Select

    your probably beat all the time cause your using collegen protein. replace that with a whey and casein blend if possible or just a strait whey product of your choosing.. there are many great ones out on the market and if you shop online you can save a lot of money. obviously I recommend food first and supplements only for what your lacking in your diet.

    I go for pure whey protein isolate and the one brand I have always stand aside has been muscle feast. If you sign up for their emails they do sales for $54 per 5lb container and I stuck up everytime. They taste amazing and mix flawlessly too.

    I was at an ISSN conference recently where one of the speakers spoke on marketting to women in the supplement industry. They are a big demographic that gets targeted a lot

    Absolutely. Females that are not educated on supplements may think if they take a product, even something simple like protein, that is geared towards men, they will become "bulky and gain too much muscle." With a female line, CL could use the words like "tone" which cater more to the female audience.

    Honestly, if you are beat all the time, I wouldn't immediately jump to any specific type of protein supplement as the cause right off the bat.

    Often times, people train too hard, too long, and/or too often. They can dig a hole for themselves and then suddenly they notice they no longer have any energy or motivation. You are doing a volume training approach, so THIS may be a big reason why you are so tired.

    Second, Jiggz and others have pointed out - protein from foods should be your first priority. The sources that he and others listed are great sources. Get your diet in check.

    Then, for supplements, I like to stick with higher quality milk/whey proteins. The debate between straight whey or a blend, or concentrates vs. isolates, etc. can be overwhelming and the truth, IMO, is that while the differences can be statistically significant - for most people it won't make a huge amount of difference, especially if they have their diet in check.

    Personally, I ONLY use protein supplements around my workout. During my workout lately I've been taking about 15 g peptopro with 25 grams of a whey/milk blend and then I take another 25 grams of whey/milk blend after the workout. Beyond that, I don't use any kind of protein supplements at all and focus on getting protein in my diet.

    the most informative response yet I have taken a week off switched to a different routine and canceled my order from visi that a friend of mine talked me into i think the stuff is garbage . Going to get my diet back in check do a little more homework on what I should be getting in me and when . Thank you so much HIT4ME . Back to taking whey after working out today and I think the break helped . Going to look into ordering from one of the sites above and compare it to what I have been taking . Thanks again !!!
