    Default Safety of children taking supplements?

    I'm wondering if it's safe for a 12 year old to take a few supplements I have. One is catalyst preworkout by strength.com (I'm very iffy about this one as it has stimulants). Another is their catalyst recovery which just seem to be nutrient so I was kind of thinking it would be ok. I also have megathom bcaa muscle (450mg branch chain amino acids). Also monster milk and muscle milk powders. I'm specifically asking about these as I have them already and my son is asking if he can take any of them. I can provide links to the products if it would be helpful and the forum rules allow it.

    It is NOT safe for a for a child to take any supplements, if you read the label on any supplement is states "Not for under 18's"

    No way I would ever have a 12 y/o take supplements. Most likely it is safe but its not worth it harming his body for some added muscle mass.

    I even don't support children to take supplements for any kind of remedy.

    Unless is its the same category as vitamins and minerals, I would not advise any supplementation for kids. Protein powders would be the exception considering they are both a supplement and a food product.
