Protein Shake



Protein shakes are very healthy for you for many reasons. First of all there are many special ingredients in them. Protein is an essential part of a healthy diet. The amino acids in protein are an essential part of building healthy tissue, like muscle, and they also create antibodies and help form new blood cells. The Mayo Clinic recommends that the average adult consume between 50 to 175 g of protein per day. If you engage in exercise, need an energy boost or you are trying to lose weight, a protein shake is 1 of the best ways to get extra grams of protein. If you do not want to invest in expensive protein powders, you can combine a number of protein-rich ingredients from a supermarket. Secondly there are tons of different types of protein shakes some are for muscle and some can be used as energy. Also you can use it just to eat healthy. Eating healthy will make your body last longer and help it run better so you can be healthy everyday of your life.
