Protein is an essential nutrient which helps form the structural component of body tissues and is used within many biological processes, for example protein is used to make enzymes, antibodies to help us fight infection as well as DNA the building blocks to life. It’s also needed to make up muscle tissue which in turn helps to keep our bodies active, strong, and healthy.
Here are my favourite protein shakes and food supplements.
The Bio Synergy Skinny Protein Shake is great for me as I'm dieting, it's low fat and low calorie so it doesn't add loads of extra calories into my daily allowance, it helps to burn fat more efficiently and tastes great, we have the chocolate flavour and it's delicious.
BioCare Body Balance is a unique nutrient combination which combines high quality whey protein with L-Carnitine, CLA and Chromium to contribute to the normal function of the metabolism and maintenance of normal blood glucose levels. When used in combination with exercise, Body Balance may contribute to the reduction of body fat and increase in lean muscle.
Deluxe Casein Night Time Muscle Recovery Drink is brilliant because I usually work out in the evening but I sometimes find that drinking a protein shake at night keeps me awake, this is specially designed to be used at night and doesn't keep me awake.
Lastly is a food supplement that I love, Warrior Reds is an advanced blend of superfoods packed with natural goodness. It's a nutrient rich cocktail of 16 superfoods in one simple 150ml serving per day. Make a shake, drink it, and enjoy the benefits of a vast variety of naturally vitamin, mineral and anti-oxidant rich fruits and vegetables in your diet.
