If you are vegetarian, vegan or lactose intolerant, this is the section for you. Mr Supplement stocks a wide range of natural protein powders that give you the benefit of supplementing with a protein supplement, but without the additional additives, preservatives, flavourings or food dyes. Some of the popular natural proteins are made from whey isolate, whey concentrate, soy, caesin, egg albumen, colostrum or even rice protein. So even if you can’t take traditional protein powders, there’s plenty of options for you here.
Protein is extremely essential for muscle growth1, but many protein powders contain flavourings or sweeteners to improve the taste. While these are generally fine for general population, some people tend not to react too well with additives and are even intolerant or allergic. If you find that you’re getting bloated or irritated to other protein powders, it could be time to switch to a more natural protein powder. Even though these protein powders are free of additives, it is still important to pay attention to the nutritional content and the ingredients panel to ensure that it is the right product for you. For those looking at gaining a higher proportion of lean muscle mass, it is best to find a powder with a higher amount of protein and a lower amount of fat and carbohydrates per serve. While for those looking at gaining more mass and for energy purposes, a protein powder with a higher carbohydrate amount would be best. Regardless, ensuring an adequate protein intake in the day will help promote a healthier lifestyle and better weight maintenance. Natural Protein Supplements stack well with everyday supplements such as fish oils and multivitamins but also with more sports specific supplements such as creatine and amino acid supplements to promote better recovery and better performance.
Natural Protein Supplements are commonly presented & sold as Formulated Supplementary Sports Foods in Australia. Natural protein powders are not a sole source of nutrition and should be used in conjunction with an appropriate physical training or exercise programme. Not suitable for children under 15 years or pregnant women. Should only be used under medical or dietetic supervision. Always read label prior to use.
