The Power of Protein

Protein is one of the main macronutrients used by the body for the build, repair and maintenance of lean tissue as well as being responsible for virtually every process that occurs within the body including metabolism and the transportation of nutrients. Anyone involved in intense exercise, wanting to build muscle or wanting to reduce body fat knows that protein is an absolute necessity.

While protein is found in a rich source of foods, a quality protein powder is a fundamental choice for anyone wanting to achieve training goals. The recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for adults is 0.8 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight, however when exercising this amount should be doubled, with around 20% to 40% of daily calories coming from protein. Protein shakes and powders are a convenient, efficient and fast absorbing solution to help you consume the correct amount of protein and take your training and results to the next level.

Protein Shakes For Muscle Gain

A high protein diet is a fundamental necessity for muscle growth, with muscle tissue constantly needed to be repaired and replaced. Frequent protein intake ensures a steady stream of amino acids to support this process. Choose from best selling Impact Whey Protein, Whey Isolate for ultimate lean gains or a calorie dense weight gainer such as Hard Gainer for sheer bulk.

Protein Shakes for Weight Loss

Protein has a thermogenic quality which assists with weight loss. A high protein diet boosts the metabolism and allows the body to mobilise stored fat for energy. Proteins such as Impact Diet Whey and Whey Isolate have been designed specifically to have fewer calories and less fat, making these perfect to support weight loss goals.

Protein for Recovery

A positive nitrogen balance is required to repair muscles and the faster they repair, the faster you recover, ensuring you're back in the gym and fresh for your next workout. A diet rich in protein insures that a proper nitrogen balance is attained and maintained. Choose proteins such as Recovery XS, Bedtime Extreme or Milk Protein.

Women's Protein Shakes

You can use the same protein shakes as men, because most formulations are designed for both sexes to achieve specific goals and dietary requirements. However as body composition is different, we have formulated True Diet as a specific women's protein shake to support weight loss goals. These truly are the best protein shakes for women.

Whey Concentrate

Whey Concentrate has 82% protein content, is quickly absorbed, rich in amino acids and low in fat and lactose. The most widely used protein powder on the market today due to its quality and value for money, it's ideal for aiding the repair and regrowth of your muscles as it can be consumed any time of the day.

Hydrolysed Whey

Hydrolysed Whey is an advanced, rapidly absorbed protein which has undergone controlled enzyme treatment to ensure it reaches the muscles quicker than most other proteins. Best taken immediately after a workout when the body's need for protein is elevated, it's commonly used by serious trainers and athletes.

Whey Protein Isolate

Whey Isolate has an impressive 90% protein, cross-flow micro-filtrated to ensure it contains even less fat, cholesterol and lactose making it the perfect protein for anyone wanting to keep their fat percentage low whilst providing their body with a quality protein.

Miscellar Casein Protein

Made from fresh skimmed milk, Miscellar Casein Protein is a slow digesting source of protein that's ideal to be taken before bed as the protein synthesis is notably slower than most other proteins, drip feeding amino acids to the muscles throughout the night.

Vegan Protein

Choices of vegan protein include Hemp Protein, Pea Protein, Brown Rice Protein and Soy Protein. All are great alternatives for those who want to avoid dairy based proteins. With a full amino acid profile, a high protein content and lactose free, they are widely used by vegans and non vegans alike.

Protein Blends

Protein blends such as Total Protein contain different forms of protein combined in one convenient formula. Ideal for those wanting a varied rate of absorption, they comprise both a rapidly absorbed protein such as whey concentrate but with a prolonged absorption of a protein such as miscellar casein protein.

Night-Time Protein

Night-Time Protein is specifically formulated to provide the body with all the nutrients it needs to repair and regrow whilst you sleep since it's this period that scientists stress is of particular importance for those wanting to effectively recover from training.

Plus they conveniently fit into your gym bag and only require the addition of water to be consumed.
