Why protein shakes?

If you aren’t getting enough protein through your diet you’ll find it hard to make significant gains in the gym in terms of strength and muscle mass, no matter how hard you exercise during your work out. That’s because your body doesn’t have enough protein to effectively rebuild, repair, and grow your muscles. Protein shakes are a good way to conveniently get a large, quick protein hit straight after a training session. To ensure you are getting the best-quality protein products, look out for ones that provide all 20 amino acids.

When it comes to gaining muscle, adapting your diet is just as important as putting in those extra hours at the gym. Protein is the only macronutrient that contributes to the development and maintenance of muscle mass, which is why it maximises your growth potential.

Supplementing your diet plan with protein shakes is a convenient way to aid fat loss, whilst also supporting muscle maintenance. Protein is the most filling of all nutrients, which means that it can suppress your appetite, helping you to feel fuller for longer.

Drinking a protein shake directly after training can significantly improve your recovery rate, as well as supporting muscle development. Our powders contain a high concentration of essential amino acids, which are necessary for the synthesis of many proteins.

A 20-30g post-workout shake will act quickly to rehydrate your body, restore glycogen levels and provide the nutrients needed for muscle repair.

Benefits of Protein Shakes
A complete amino acid profile. Proteins are absolutely essential for muscle growth and are the building blocks of muscle. In the body there are 20 amino acids present that combine to make proteins. Nine of these amino acids are “essential” meaning they cannot be synthesized by the body and therefore must come from diet or supplementation. Whey protein contains all essential amino acids in adequate amounts making it one of the best options for anyone looking to increase their daily protein intake.

High bioavailability. Whey protein is superior to other protein types whereby it is rapidly broken down by the body, making it a great protein source during periods where the body is most eager for nutrients. Due to its high absorption rate, it's best taken after intense workouts.

Delicious flavours. Thanks to the most advanced and modern technology, consuming our whey protein products has never been easier whereby we now offer over 51 mouth-watering flavours, so that you can enjoy your protein shake and take your nutrition to a higher level.
