Product FAQS
Is it best to take protein powder before or after my workout?

Consuming protein immediately after you exercise is best. This is when the body is most effective at absorbing nutrients and aiding recovery. Just don't forget to ensure the total protein you consume throughout the day is adequate.

How much protein should I take?

The amount of protein consumed each day depends on an individual’s training and goals. However, a good standard to aim for is 2g of protein for every kilogram of bodyweight. For example, someone who weighs 80kg and exercises 2-3 times a week should consume approximately 160g of protein each day. The minimum amount of protein an athlete should aim for is 1.5g per kg of bodyweight.
