Protein smoothies and shakes are getting more and more popular and for good reasons. Protein smoothies are an easy and refreshing way to get your daily protein fix – which is why we developed our two protein-packed smoothies Fruitasia and The Veggie-Nator.
Why Protein Smoothies?
Protein is an incredibly important macronutrient that helps build muscle, repair tissues and makes enzymes and hormones. It’s basically one of the building blocks of bone, muscle and skin.
Eating protein helps you feel fuller for longer, helping you to resist snacking – so it can help you maintain a healthy weight too. Post training it helps you to not only build muscle but also repair damaged muscles and tissue– hence some research suggests it's best to get your protein in after you exercise.
Boost your mood with Protein
Tryptophan – one of the building blocks of protein – may also help ease depression. In a society where more and more people suffer from mental health protein is a vital part of any diet.
