Q&A: Soy for Men
Q: Are soy products safe for men to consume? — Justin, Piedmont, ND
A: Go ahead and enjoy the edamame at your favorite Asian restaurant, but choose milk-based protein for your post-workout drink. Research shows that milk-based proteins (whey and casein) out perform soy when it comes to triggering a muscle-building process called "protein synthesis" and helping your body recover better from your training session.
