Here at Neat, we’re not just here to provide supplements for sports fanatics. We specialise in active nutrition. Essentially, we’re here to make things easier and to help you fuel your active lifestyle, whatever that may look like.
You don’t need to be a competitive bodybuilder or serious athlete to benefit from protein powders. Yes, if you train intensively, supplements can be a massive help in repairing your muscles post-workout. But the amino acids in protein are the building blocks of EVERYONE’S body, not just gym-goers. Your body uses protein for a whole host of things - to build and repair tissue, muscle, and cartilage, to make enzymes and hormones, and even to grow healthy hair, nails, and skin. And that’s before we even get started on how it helps your energy levels and satiation!
Taking a protein supplement is a great idea for busy people who want to stay healthy on-the-go, helping to make sure you still have the energy you need to do everything you love. That might be running after your kids at the park or keeping up a balanced diet whilst on a hectic travel schedule. If you’re always skipping breakfast and tend to suffer from mid-morning fatigue, whipping up a simple shake or protein smoothie could help you stay energised and satiated throughout the day!
This month we’re talking all about sleep, and if you haven’t yet read last week’s blogpost, studies have shown that those who ate a higher protein diet even reported better sleep quality!
