What Are The Benefits Of Protein Shakes?
Our range is made from the very finest protein powders on the market today. We specialise in high quality, great tasting shakes that range from whey protein to casein protein, all in a wide variety of flavours and sizes.
We innovate, formulate and manufacture in-house in the UK and are passionate and committed to offering the highest quality and the widest range at exceptional value for money.
Our shakes range includes a wide variety of proteins. When it comes to the most popular powder we have all bases covered.
From the best-selling Whey Protein 80, a high quality protein shake made from concentrate to the ultra pure isolate known as Whey 90. A 90% protein content whey which is incredibly low in fat and carbohydrates. We also offer casein protein and egg protein formulas for slower nutrient release, while our non-dairy protein options include Soy 90, Brown Rice 80 and Pea 80.
Protein shakes are a great way to supplement a high protein diet. Specifically, the International Olympic Committee Consensus on Sports Nutrition states that “strength or speed athletes require 1.7grams of protein per kg of bodyweight per day.” This is because protein is one of three macronutrients needed by the body. Fat and carbohydrates being the other two. But it’s protein that helps our muscles repair and regrow as well as helping every process that occurs within the body. This includes the immune system, metabolism and transport of nutrients.
But if your goal is to increase muscle mass what should go into your protein shaker? Typically many experts recommend concentrate because it’s considered very pure. What this means is its high in protein and low in carbohydrates and calories. This in turn ensures your body has all the protein it requires to repair and regrow but without the additional calories. Alternatively for athletes who just want sheer power and size there is a weight gainer in the form of Total Mass Matrix which is a calorie and nutrient dense formula. This is arguably better suited for those athletes who aren’t concerned about lean muscle mass and just want to increase the size and strength of their muscles.
Many studies have been conducted into protein’s effect on fat loss. Specifically whey isolate shakes have been found to have a “thermic effect”. What this means is it actually requires calories to digest. For this reason many people will supplement a high protein diet with isolate. It can help to keep you feeling fuller for longer whilst at the same time accelerate the calories you burn merely through digestion.
On top of all this, unlike nearly all other supplement brands out there today, we are open and transparent about exactly which and how much protein is included in every single supplement.
