What is a Protein Shake?
Our nutritionists have put together this complete guide to help you to understand the benefits of sufficient protein intake.
What is a Complete Recovery Lean Protein shake and how does it help me?
Protein is essential in the human body and for overall health and wellbeing. While you can get protein from meats, dairy, eggs and fish (or legumes, nuts and seeds for vegetarians) it is widely believed that an active person requires more protein than the average person, particularly for muscle recovery. This is where Protein shakes come in!
When should I have a Protein Shake?
Protein shakes are needed if you are active and not getting enough protein from your daily food diet, and they are also a super convenient source of protein when on-the-go! The best time to have a Goddess Nutrition complete recovery lean protein shake is within an hour of finishing your workout, the sooner the better! This will not only help your muscles recover post-workout (it helps to get rid of muscle soreness) but it will also help your body to fully take advantage of the workout you have just completed.
