im not sure if you had heard that question before but what re the benefits? example, not much people seem to see results with just protein. nitro-tech sounds good but overall in general, what are the benefits of using protein?

its the building blocks of your muscles, i would go into it more but i have to go now. i'm sure someone else will elaborate on it further.

Basically, protein is the building blocks of your muscles, without it, your muscles can not grow. You do not need nitro-tech shakes to get protein, get it from eggs, chicken, cottage cheese, tuna, lean meats, fish, etc etc.. the only time a shake would be useful is after you workout. have a WHEY protein shake, this is simply because it is absorbed really fast. even this is not NEEDED as such, but it helps a fair bit IMO.

well thats the basics.. seems like you don;t know too much about diet/nutrition so its no point for anyone to get into all the fancy chemical process of how our bodies use's the protein :P

Whey protein won't do ANYTHING for you that food protein sources won't, if that's what you're asking.
