With so many male-orientated products out there, it’s little wonder that the majority of women assume protein supplements are not for them. Brands that promote protein for bodybuilding and adding bulk are not only intimidating, but also overlook the variety of ways protein benefits every body, including females!


The Pros in Protein

Diet

Diet

The body doesn’t store protein like fats and carbohydrates, so it’s important to consume regular protein throughout the day. As a rule, you need 1g of protein for every 1kg of body weight, plus more if you exercise regularly. So keep yourself tip top by being topped up!

Tone

Tone

Women generally lack the hormones that men have to gain ‘bulk’ easily, so there’s no reason for women to fear protein. When combined with an active lifestyle and fitness regime, high quality protein shakes can help to develop lean muscle mass and give your body that slim, toned look so many women crave.

Weight loss

Weight loss

If you are following a controlled diet then Protein can contribute towards weight loss. It requires more work to digest and burn, which means processing it can boost your metabolism. It also takes longer to leave your stomach, so you feel fuller quicker and for longer, helping to stop you reaching for unhealthy foods.

Health

Health

Whey protein contains all essential amino acids, and is widely known as a muscle ‘must have’. Protein plays a crucial role in almost all biological processes and can have various health benefits beyond fuelling muscles, including aiding blood pressure, boosting the immune system, helping to stabilise blood sugar and insulin levels, as well as promoting healthy skin, hair and nails! 

Lifestyle

Lifestyle

For many of us, convenience is key. So whilst supplements can’t replace a diet of whole foods, they can act as a complementary addition. SheProtein is great for women with busy, ‘on the go’ lifestyles and can fit easily within your everyday diet to ensure that you’re keeping protein levels topped up and energy levels regulated.

Fitness

Fitness

Protein isn’t just for bodybuilders and athletes, in fact anyone hitting the gym, playing sports, going for runs or doing any other form of workout needs it. When you exercise, you are effectively tearing muscle fibres that then require rest and nutritional support to ‘recover’; this is where SheProtein Fit comes in.

She Questions


She Questions

Let us answer some of those specific protein queries you might have.

Why will having more protein stop you reaching for unhealthy snacks?

One of the first signs that your protein levels have dropped is that you are often hungry and craving sugary foods. One of protein's most critical functions is to keep your blood sugar regulated, which means that if you're lacking protein then your glucose levels will be disrupted, encouraging you to reach for a quick fix.

How can protein help with weight loss and weight management?

High-protein foods take more effort for the body to digest, metabolise and use, which means you burn more calories processing them than other food groups. They also take longer to leave your stomach, so you feel fuller sooner and for longer and are less inclined to reach for unnecessary treats.

Why is whey protein important pre and post workout?

Whey contains peptides (protein fragments) that have been suggested to help increase blood flow to muscles, which is particularly helpful before workouts as muscles may receive more oxygen, nutrients and hormones right when they need them most. It is also particularly important post workout for helping muscles to recover.

What makes SheProtein’s Whey Protein Isolate high quality?

Our whey protein is extracted through a cold filtration process that preserves the vital enzymes and beneficial bacteria needed to digest and absorb the protein properly. The majority of other protein powders are extracted through high heat pasteurisation, whereas the low temperatures we use preserve the nutritional benefits.

Why is it important to have regular protein intake?

Our bodies deal with nutrients differently at various times and depending on what activity we do. As we don’t store protein like carbohydrate and fat, we need to ensure that we have a steady intake of protein throughout the day. Key times include when we wake up and before and after exercise.

Why are SheProtein shakes a great addition to your everyday diet? 

While no supplement can replace a diet of natural, unprocessed foods, SheProtein is great for women with a very busy, on-the-go lifestyle and fits in to an everyday diet. While food sources of protein are plentiful, there will come a time in your day when eating a baked chicken breast or a hard-boiled egg just isn’t convenient, whereas mixing up a shake couldn’t be simpler!
