The real benefits behind drinking protein shakes

Protein shakes are everywhere these days and there are loads of different varieties out there on the market, but Forever Living’s soy-based protein shake, Forever Lite Ultra, is rich in goodness that can be enjoyed by any adult– not just by those who are mad on muscle-building! If you find yourself wondering why everyone you know appears to have a pack of this milky treat in their cupboards, you may be interested to learn that a Forever Lite Ultra shake offers benefits that go beyond the gym and into the real world. Read on to find out why Forever Lite Ultra shakes are beneficial in the everyday.

They are nutritious

Forever’s shake is high in twelve vitamins and nine essential minerals, which is pretty impressive for something that tastes so good. You can also easily add different fruits and vegetables to further increase its nutrient value and to shake up the flavour if you fancy something with a bit more zing. If you are craving a mid-afternoon snack but don’t want to raid the biscuit jar, try the chocolate shake with hazelnut milk for a filling and rich-flavoured treat that won’t leave you feeling guilty – in fact, the additional nutrients will probably make you feel even better than before!

They provide plant-based protein

The soya bean really is a marvellous creation and it’s long been enjoyed by vegetarians whose diet is naturally lacking in animal protein, and that’s because soya provides high quality protein that’s low in saturated fat and high in omega-3 fatty acids. Soya’s also an excellent source of fibre and it contains amino acids – muscle and tissue are made from amino acids, so this is important for daily bodily functions.

They help aid recovery

The reason why gym-lovers are often accompanied by a protein shake is because protein contributes to a growth in and to the maintenance of muscle mass. After a gruelling exercise session, your muscles are crying out for protein to help them to properly recover. If you’re not into the gym, a protein shake will also do you some good after you’ve played your favourite team sport or if you’ve simply had a busy day running after the kids.

They assist your immune system

Forever Lite Ultra is high in vitamins D, C, B6, iron, zinc, copper and selenium and all these nutrients contribute to the normal function of the immune system. A strong immune system is important for protecting you against viruses and illnesses, so you’ll want to ensure you’re well defended, particularly as temperatures are all over the place this season.

They strengthen your muscles

As well as the protein itself, vitamin D, magnesium, potassium and calcium all also contribute to normal muscle function. Protein helps with the growth of muscle mass, but big muscles are pointless if they don’t work as they should! With Forever Living’s protein shake, you can enjoy the creamy drink in the knowledge that it’s helping your muscles and so much more.

They will give you a boost

It’s likely that you need a fair boost of energy at some point in your day and this delicious shake may be just what your body needs. Vitamins C, B2, B6, B12, magnesium and iron all contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, so drinking Forever Lite Ultra, which is high in all these nutrients, will help to give you the pick-me-up you need.

They are quick and easy

Simply scoop, add the milk of your choice, secure the shaker lid and shake vigorously! This shake really is ideal for people who are constantly on the go with busy lifestyles, and if you want to add fruit, the same method applies but you may find it easier to use a blender. You can drink this shake at breakfast or lunch, or as a snack between meals. If you are looking for ways to add soy-protein to your diet without drinking it as a shake, try sprinkling the powder on your porridge, ice-cream or fruit, or use it to make delicious pancakes – yum!
