you do not need ANY supplements.
to get big and strong, you need 3 things. 1- lift heavy, 2- food 3-rest
you need to be doing squats, deadlifts, bench, and overhead press as the basis for your program. stuff like curls, tricep ext, leg ext etc won't get you big or strong like the above compound lifts will.
a novice program, like 'starting strength' is very simple to follow and you will have noticible strenghth and size gains in a short time.
as a novice, and a teenager, you are capable of making huge gains in a short time by lifting properly.
eating.....to gain weight you need to eat a lot. A LOT. if you follow a program w/ the lifts above and aren't getting bigger its because you aren't eating enough. eat so much you want to puke, then eat more.
whole milk is like magic growing juice. eat all your food and drink a gallon of whole milk every day and you'll get the results you're looking for.
I gained about 30 pounds in a few months with Cell Tech and lots of push ups. I did 5 sets of 30 in the morning, 10 sets of 30 in the afternoon, and 10 sets of 30 before I went to sleep.
Unfortunately, protein does not really do anything at all, so protein supplements are not the right direction for you to go. I can't really answer your question fully, but protein will not help with muscle and weight gain.
