Protein Powders

 

Our protein powders are an easy and convenient source of complete, high-quality protein  There are a few reasons why people might want supplemental protein in their diet:

  • Young athletes who are still growing. A teenager needs more protein to fuel his workouts because his body is still growing and uses more protein in general.
  • When you’re starting an exercise program. If working out is new to you and you’re trying to build muscle, you’ll require more protein than you normally would.
  • When you’re amping up your workouts. If you normally work out for half an hour a few times a week, but now you’ve decide to train for a half-marathon, your body will need more protein.
  • When you’re recovering from an injury.  Injuries cause the body to require more protein to help them heal.
  • If you’re going vegan. People who pursue a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle eliminate a number of common protein sources from their diet, including meat, chicken, and fish, and sometimes dairy and eggs as well.
  • When you are on a weight loss diet. Research shows that increasing protein calories during weight loss helps a person to retain their muscle mass.
