Protein drinks for youth athletes..

by Coach

First of I want to say that I am a big believer of getting all of your nutrition needs from a healthy well balanced diet. I have a few wrestlers 13-17 years old that have been adding a lot of strength training and are competing at a very high level. I am looking for a quality, safe, chemical free protein drink to supplement their diet and aide in recovery. One catch, has to be 100% peanut free as a few of these athletes have severe peanut allergies. Looking for trainers, nutritionist or coaches suggestions..

And taking in too much protein can actually harm the body, causing dehydration, calcium loss, and even kidney problems.
