Protein Supplements

Protein powders and supplements are a great way to ensure you reach your daily macronutrient goals, and enhance your performance and muscle regrowth in line with exercise. There are many ways you can utilise these powders from simply adding a few scoops to milk or water for a quick post workout shake, to a filling breakfast in the form of protein pancakes or a fruit based smoothie. Two of our favourite blends come from Protein World and Reflex Nutrition. 

Protein World - The Slender Blend 

This supplement comes in a variety of flavours including Chocolate, Strawberry, Banana and our personal favourite Vanilla. This Non-GMO powder is marketed at assisting weight loss due to its low calorie content, however with 31g of Protein per 40g serving, this enables quality performance and noticeably increased stamina during exercise which makes it a daily go-to for us. Our favourite way to use this is in a smoothie with Mango, Raspberries and Almond Milk which is a refreshing and nutritious way to start any day! 

 Reflex Nutrition - Instant Whey Pro

Reflex instant whey protein is an advanced formula of protein that comes in a massive range of flavours that means protein can easily be incorporated into your diet in an easy and tasty way. This supplement consists of whey protein isolates which is 90% protein, and is extracted from fresh skimmed milk. In just one two-scoop serving 20g of protein is provided. This formulation of whey contains significantly more bio-available cysteine, which helps with fat burning as well as improving the immune system. Our favourite flavour is strawberries and cream as it works well in smoothies and porridge but other flavours include vanilla ice-cream, cinnamon whirl, banoffee pie, choc-mint perfection and raspberry delight. Reflex instant whey is the perfect supplement to help you reach your fitness goals whist providing maximum nutritional benefits.
