A lot of people ask us why we use protein powders and why we suggest them for our clients when working out or trying to lose weight. The answer is simple. Protein powders help reduce muscle damage, increase muscle growth, boost energy, curb hunger and control calories.
There are many protein powders on the market, as I'm sure you know. It can feel overwhelming standing in a health store, staring at a wall of protein powders, trying to figure out which ones are the best. At Adamson's, we have chosen to use and sell dotFIT and Thorne Research protein powders and here's why.
We use dotFIT and Thorne Research products because they:
- have a blend of high quality proteins
- provide quick digesting proteins and carbs to help with immediate muscle recovery
- the quick digesting proteins reduce muscle damage and increase muscle growth
- offer a healthier lower calorie alternative to fast food
- offer convenient storage and are quick and easy to prepare
- can be used as snacks between meals
- Thorne is the only supplement company in the US that has passed all 3 levels of the toughest regulatory agency in the world which is not the FDA, but an agency from Australia.
Here is a quick break down of the proteins powders we carry:
Thorne Research Protein Isolate: With 20 grams of whey Protein and 4 grams of Carbs, this is great for someone who likes to add fruit, milk, yogurt or nut milks to the shake. This allows you to add as many carbs as you like. Mixes quick and easy with water. Amy's favorite!
Thorn Research Vegalite: Vegalite has 21 grams of Pea and Rice protein and 5 grams of Carbs. It's a great option for vegetarians and vegans who also want to add carbs (fruit/milk/yogurt/nut milks) to the shake.
dotFIT Pre/Post Workout Meal Replacement: Packing in 20 grams of whey and casein protein and 35 grams of carbs, this is excellent for those who don't want to think about it. Just add water, shake 30 seconds, drink, and go! This is Amy's husband's favorite! He drinks one after his Team Training workouts.
dotFIT Lean MR: This has 20 grams of protein and 23 grams of slow release carbs and 13.5 grams of Lean Fats. It's a great way to control carbs and curb cravings as the fat helps to make you feel fuller longer. We recommend you blend this with your favorite fruits, veggies, yogurt, etc...
