Give your traditional protein shake a refreshing make over! As we all know the traditional protein shake is essential for post workout recovery. Protein is the body's primary source for building muscle, bone, skin, and other tissues. Most protein shakes come in combinations of protein, carbohydrates, and fats that help the body recover from intense exercise. Without an adequate amount of protein over-training could occur leading to injury. Protein helps our muscles heal up quickly. Protein shakes are great for active individuals whether your goal is to just maintain a healthy active life style or if you are in training.
