Who uses protein powders and meal replacements?
Protein powders, meal replacements and nutrients-fortified shakes are now some of the most popular types of health supplements.
Usually taken on a daily basis, one of the main reasons for their popularity is the ease with which they can be made and taken – just mix and go, ideal for the modern fast-paced lifestyle – as well as the range of tasty flavours that are available. The user can actually enjoy these supplements, and benefit from the feeling of fullness that they can provide, rather than just popping a pill.
Another key reason is their versatility. By this we mean that they can be used for a wide variety of reasons and to support a range of health goals. For example:-by athletes, bodybuilders and anyone living an active lifestyle, for a protein boost and to support energy levels, stamina, performance and recovery times
-by slimmers, looking for a way to balance their blood sugar, support a healthy metabolism and increase their nutrient intake in a way that is low in calories, sugar, fat and other undesirable ingredients
-by those with food allergies or intolerances (such as to dairy or gluten) and therefore restricted diets, looking to top up on certain nutrients on a daily basis (such as protein, calcium, vitamins and minerals)
-by those on low-protein diets, such as vegans and vegetarians
-by anyone that is health-conscious and looking to top up their daily intake of quality nutrients, without too many extra calories or extra sugar or fat.
