Soy increases estrogen which is not good for building muscle. You should avoid soy unless you are
post-menopause.

Oh and the brand I like is isopure

Whey protein is more complete and better for instant protein needs.

How much protein do these give? I read recently that 20 grams was the max amount of protein absorbed for muscle rebuilding after a workout (how do they even figure that out I don't know)

But I can get that much in a half can of tuna and a hard boiled egg. There are so many natural options that are pretty easy. A shake is delicious yeah but prep and cleanup of a blender make the "instant" debatable and the whole "processed" nature of the protein seems a bit of a turn-off. Not to mention a lot of them have added sugar and whatever else.

Maybe for real bodybuilding? I don't know.. who out there really highly recommends protein shakes and why?

Isopure has a no sugar or better yet a no carb version and yes depending on your size the body can only break down about 15-25 grams of protein every few hours you will pee out uric acid (that's how they tested it) or if the amount becomes to much strain on your system you will um... spray from your back side. Lol

The difference between natural and say isopure is the long chain and short chain branched amino acids that are available these acids are what the body really needs to repair. So that said you must use a variety of natural proteins or use a product such as isopure to obtain the essential amino acids. Hope that helps.

Definitely not soy protein. It's bad for women.

Neither. Used to do whey but limiting my dairy protein intake for several reasons. So now i use pure green protein - its all plant based without soy. Its mostly pea, alfalfa and rice-sourced.

Good stuff... I use green proteins too.

Whey of course! Refrain from soy as there are lots of bad stuff I'm hearing from it. You may also want to consider natural proteins.
