Should You Be Using Protein Supplements?

Protein is an essential part of any diet and helps your body to grow, regenerate and maintain a strong immune system. Meals with high protein also keep you full for longer.

Protein powders have been growing in popularity as the go-to nutritional supplement for gym-goers. Being so simple to prepare and consume, it is no surprise that this helpful supplement is becoming more prominent in everyday life. Just pour the shake into a 321 Detox Bottle, and you can take your protein on the go. 

What is a protein powder made of? 
Protein powders usually include a base of proteins from soy, pea or dairy (whey) along with or vitamins and minerals. 

When should you drink protein shakes?

  • After strenuous exercise:
    The most common time to drink protein supplements is just after training. Drinking a protein shake after your workout will assist your muscles in recovery and growth. The supplement shake will deliver amino acids to your muscles and help them to recover.
  • When you are moving to a vegan diet: 
    Moving to a plant-based diet and cutting out foods that are high in protein, such as chicken, can have an adverse impact on your body. It is important to still fuel your body with the nutrients it needs. 
  • When you are working out more than you usually would or are starting a new exercise routine:
    When you up the exercise it is good to also up your protein intake. 
  • When you are recovering from an injury:
    Some experts say that protein can help your body to regenerate faster.
