Protein is a key macronutrient in any diet as it helps with muscle growth and repair, important for immune function and enzyme production as well as helping making you feel fuller for longer. The best way to get this is from food sources however this can not always be possible so this is where protein supplements in the form of whey/soy/pea/hemp protein powders come in handy.
Now the protein supplement market is HUGE and trying to work out which is the best can be tough and what with all the different types for goals where do you start? Low fat/ Lean muscle / Gain mass / women only the list goes on ....
All I knew is that I didn’t want one that was full of added sugars additives etc just a simple whey protein that tastes nice and is easy to use. This is where Natural Whey came in :)
They have created a natural blend that contains no artificial colours or flavourings and their smoothie range is sweetened with REAL fruit - these are really good and you can try samples YEY!
Depending on whether you choose the diet/lean/normal whey the ingredients will alter slightly but its all good stuff I promise - see for yourself here. They all have BCAA (branched chain amino acids) and both the natural and diet are low fat, low carb. With 24.5g of protein per serving 30g if you get the diet whey ! it’s a great addition to a healthy diet.
You can drink it on its own as a shake or add it to oats or yogurt. Tried and tested by yours truly
The chocolate peanut butter, Vanilla ice cream and Banana split flavours are personal favourites!
Alongside the whey they also sell a great range of products that can help you on your healthy lifestyle. Including:
*Food products from - Quest, Dr Zaks, Meridian, Lenny and Larrys, Waldens farm
*Supplements - Supergreens, Coconut oil, Pure Creatine Ethyl Ester, African Mango, Pure Acai berry and CLA tablets
A couple of my key staples (alongside the obligatory quest bar - because who doesn't love a questie <3 ) are the coconut oil and supergreens powder.
Coconut oil: A saturated fat (yes I said it FAT) but this is a good one – aiding with energy which in turn can help ramp up your metabolism. It is great to cook and bake with as well as adding a spoonful to your morning coffee. There are a range of uses for skin and hair too :)
With no added anything or sugar all natural and organic it’s the perfect choice I use it everyday and I haven't turned into a marshmallow !
Supergreens: Made up of 23 superfood green ingredients one serving equals 1 of your 5 a day. Great nutritional benefits that can help boost energy and detox the digestive system. I have a glass every morning to awaken my body and prepare me for the day ahead. It also tastes nice too even if it doesn’t look it haha.
I became an ambassador for this company because I believe in their ethos and product. It also helps that they are really friendly who want to help people not just sell products.
I personally don’t see the point in endorsing something you don’t use or stand for – if people trust your opinion why sell them something fake just because it looks good for you.
