Why Protein

Untitled Document

Protein contains amino acids, the building blocks for muscle development, growth and repair. When you exercise your muscles become damaged and so a diet rich in protein is essential to prevent muscle soreness and to increase muscle strength. Whether your goal is to build lean muscle, decrease body fat levels, and/or improve your recovery, a high protein intake can help take your training to the next level.

You should supply your muscles with regular servings of protein (every 2-3 hours) to ensure amino acids continually support muscle growth and repair by promoting protein synthesis, and preventing catabolism (muscle breakdown) [1]. We know that it can be both expensive and a hassle to consume 25-30g protein every 2-3 hours, which is why we’ve developed For Goodness Shakes Protein, a unique, tasty, nutritious and convenient protein shake that will deliver 25g of quality protein every time, as you need it. We’re offering you a simple solution to help you reach your daily dietary protein target, so that you can achieve your lean muscle defining goals.

For Goodness Shakes Range  
The recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for adults is 0.8 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight, however this relates to sedentary adults. For anyone participating in regular exercise, protein intake should increase significantly, to help build, maintain and repair muscle mass in response to training. A review published in Journal of Sports Sciences suggests athletes may benefit from consuming 1.8 to 2.0 g of protein per kilogram of body weight, especially during times of intense training [2]. The recommendations in this research study highlight that FGS Protein is a convenient, efficient and fast absorbing method for attaining the crucial higher protein volume into your body and delivered to the muscle cell.
