    Whey protein? Animal protein causes inflammation in the human body.

    • Tara says:

      Exercise also causes inflammation. But it’s all a spectrum. A high quality Whey protein powder is less acidic then some other protein choices out there. If you don’t like Whey protein try Vega or another vegetarian (non – soy) protein powder.
