Let’s break it down…
1. When you work out, you create tears in your muscles, which then need to repair themselves. Amino acids will help repair these tears, and a protein shake is an easy way to get these amino acids into your system. Of course, you can get your protein from food, but it takes more time for your body to break down the protein in solid food. So if you’re in a rush, or your busy lifestyle makes shakes an easier option, a supplement might be right for you.
2. If you’re following a plant-based or specialised diet, you may struggle to get all the essential amino acids you need (your body only makes some of them, the rest you need from your diet). A supplement could help with making sure your body is getting what it needs.
3. Protein shakes can be a healthier snack choice than visiting the vending machine at 3 pm, or a better breakfast than either skipping or grabbing a croissant. Mixing with fruits and veggies will give you a great balance of nutrients too.
