- THEY HELP YOUR BODY TO REGENERATE
After a HIIT session, the stressed muscles have to regenerate. Protein supports this regeneration phase. For athletes, a daily dose of 1.5 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight is recommended. In combination with carbohydrates – for example from fresh fruits – the proteins can be absorbed faster. It works even better in liquid form: a protein shake provides your body with ease and in short time nutrients. That’s because muscles need to be supplied with blood, which provides them with nutrients. When your body is busy digesting solid foods, only little nutrient-rich blood will be left over to your muscles.
- THEY HELP YOU BUILD MUSCLE
If you want to build muscle mass, a protein shake after training is essential! Protein contains many building blocks and amino acids that the body can absorb immediately after ingestion. Amino acids are the smallest form of proteins that we sometimes produce ourselves. However, this amount is not enough if we train intensively. The additional intake of amino acids helps your body, above all, to regenerate faster and favors the extent of muscle building.
- THEY HELP YOU LOSE WEIGHT
You want to lose weight? Then you should definitely drink a protein shake after training! If you do without it, you miss your goal. Because: As an energy supply serve the body as the very first carbohydrate, then protein and finally fat. If the body lacks appropriate resources after training, it resorts to its own muscle mass to meet its energy needs. But: Especially the muscle mass is important to keep the basal metabolic rate of energy! Or even increase it and so without losing the dreaded yo-yo effect. Women often fear that they become too muscular through protein powder. But this is unfounded: they can build up by their significantly lower testosterone levels no muscle mountains.
- PREVENT CRAVINGS
Proteins have the highest saturation effect among all nutrients. As a result, fewer calories are absorbed and the weight is reduced in the long term. Certain ingredients, such as oatmeal and cinnamon, help regulate your blood sugar levels and prevent food cravings. Fiber from oatmeal, chia seeds, fiber-rich fruit and leafy greens also fill you up for a long time, so that cravings do not even arise.
- YOU MAKE HAPPY
A protein shake also helps you to build muscle, while recording and brightens your mood on top! Our protein shakes are full of tryptophan with bananas, dates, cocoa and pineapple! This is an amino acid that helps the body to form the happiness hormone serotonin. Combined with the happiness hormones that your body releases after a HIIT session, this is a true endorphin shower!
IS A PROTEIN SHAKE A WHOLESOME MEAL?
We are often asked if a shake replaces a meal. That depends: Since we not only use water and protein powder, but pay attention to a balanced mix of nutrients, our protein shakes can also replace a meal – if you want to lose weight. Otherwise, you should eat something about an hour after your shake. Whether that’s just a handful of nuts or a full dish depends on your personal goal.
