Spotlight on: Chocolate Whey Protein
As one of our most popular proteins, what is it that makes our Chocolate Whey Protein so great? As well as tasting like our all-time favourite treat, it’s packed full of everything you need for post-workout recovery, the development of lean muscle and to make sure you stay fuller for longer…
Why Do We Need Protein?
Very simply, protein is an organic compound made up of amino acids. Amino acids are the building blocks of our bodies.
Protein (especially whey based) has been proven to satiate hunger and keep you feeling full for longer, and a high-protein diet with moderate carb and fat intake will help you achieve lean muscles. And that’s not all! Any tissue in the body uses protein to build and repair. So, hair, skin, nails – these are all built from protein too!
Why Chocolate Whey Protein?
The optimum go-to product for post-gym recovery, you don't get much quicker or tastier than our Whey Protein Powder. Packed with essential amino acids and nutrient rich, our blend contributes to the development of lean muscle.
