Whether you’re trying to lose weight or build muscle, protein is essential to your diet. But what are the benefits of this much protein you ask? Well, there are quite a few! It does a lot of amazing things for our bodies–like helping us recover from injuries, tone muscles or control our appetite.

Protein is great for weight management. While we can't say that protein will specifically help you lose weight, we do know that it can help you feel full for longer compared to other types of food. Your appetite will be curbed because it is so dense in nutrition; and hopefully, this means greater impulse control and less desire to snack. Also, because of proteins density, it means your body works harder to break it down. This means a good boost in metabolism which ultimately aids weight management.

Another benefit of protein is muscle gain. When you exercise, especially weight lifting, you're doing some damage to your muscles. Of course, this ultimately results in muscle mass gains; but along the way, it takes a lot out of your body to rebuild that muscle. Protein is one of the essential macronutrients that the body uses to aid in these repairs. You'll often hear strength trainers talking in-depth about their protein intake... and with good reason. They are so concerned with how much protein they are consuming because they know it directly correlates with their gains. Typically, a from-the-bag whey protein smoothie contains about 22-24 grams of protein. With our immense 49-gram High Protein Smoothie, you can get more than double that amount of protein in a similarly sized serving. In this case, more is more.

Another benefit of protein is that it can help significantly later in life. Protein helps to fight off muscle mass and bone loss. The ability to maintain this mass means that you can live a longer, healthier more active life, all which greatly contribute to longevity.
