Protein is a critically important nutrient for building and maintaining muscle mass. It is a nutrient dense food which keeps you full and satiated for longer, reducing your appetite so you can consume less calories, making it easier to stay in shape.
Our protein powders, from animal and plant sources, offer a convenient and cost-effective way to increase your protein intake.
Whey Protein Concentrate and Whey Protein Isolate is the staple supplement consumed by most. These are quick release proteins, best for consumption pre-or post-workout. Whey is not suitable for those with lactose intolerance as it is produced from milk. If whey causes you nausea or other tummy troubles, you should try our egg or pea proteins.
Casein Protein is a slow release protein, delivering a steady source of nutrients and satiety for longer. This is the primary reason why casein is usually the best type of protein to use as a meal replacement or as a pre-bedtime meal. Casein is also derived from milk and cannot be consumed by people who are lactose intolerant.
Pea Protein Concentrate is a plant based protein that can be consumed by anyone, including all vegetarians and vegans. It is a slow digesting protein, offering similar value as casein as a meal replacement and appetite reducer. Pea protein is a complete protein, which means it contains all nine of the essential amino acids—including branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs)—that you need to consume to effectively build muscle. That’s not true of many other plant-based options like rice.
Pea protein has one potentially significant advantage over whey - the fact that it houses about three times more of the amino acid arginine than whey. Arginine may not be a BCAA, but it’s essential to building muscle, and may explain why pea protein does such a good job at boosting men’s muscle gains. Whether it does or not, it is not in any way inferior to whey as it contains 24g of protein per 30g serving, the same as whey. Many who suffer the digestive troubles of whey would do themselves a huge favour by trying out our Pea Protein Concentrate. Last but not least, our Pea Protein offers significant cost savings compared to any other protein, allowing you to consume as much as you want without breaking the bank.
Albumin (Egg White Protein) is the purest form of protein and is the standard against which all other proteins are measured (including your favourite whey!)
Here are a few reasons and ways to consider adding it to your supplement plan:
Egg white protein is naturally devoid of carbs and fat. Since egg white protein is so low in carbs and fat, it's a great choice for those who are dieting and don't want to get any extra carbs or fat in their protein shakes. It also digests at a moderate rate, helping to keep you feeling full for longer.
If you are allergic to cow's milk protein, or lactose intolerant, egg white protein is a great option for a high-quality protein powder.
