Women’s Best: Specialist Nutrition Tailored for Women

It might be hard to believe, but there was a time when most nutritional supplements, especially those related to fitness, were aimed exclusively at men.

Think about whether you have ever seen a big bottle of protein powder. They scream, “I’m macho”, with fonts straight out of an action movie and pictures of muscly men.

But it doesn’t stop at the packaging. Women actually require different quantities of nutrients than men, meaning that most commercially sold protein supplements aren’t suitable, or need to be taken in different quantities than recommended.

Enter Women’s Best, a company that decided to make nutritional supplements, especially protein powders, tailored just for female bodies.

What is a protein shake?    

Protein powders and shakes have exploded in popularity in the past few years, so it is worth taking a step back and looking at why.

Our bodies are already full of protein – it is found in every single cell and is the second largest component of our bodies, after water.

Protein provides us with energy and is made up of chains of various amino acids, and you will often see them referenced on packaging.

The cell type that contains the most protein by percentage is muscle, which is why you may have heard of protein in connection to exercise.

We usually get most of our replacement protein from our diet, as meat and fish provide us with all the protein we need. However, for those on plant-based diets or for anyone doing intensive exercise or wanting to gain muscle, protein supplements can make a huge difference.

Most commonly, protein can be added into your diet as a powder that can be sprinkled into soups, or mixed with yoghurt.

For example, those on a keto, or ketogenic diet limit carbs and eat extra protein in order to shed the pounds.

Protein shakes for women 

When it comes to protein shakes for women, women’s protein requirements are different than men.

In terms of the best protein for women, the protein itself is the same. It’s the amount that needs to be titrated for women.

When it comes to people aged 19-50, the average man needs around 55.5g of protein per day, while the average woman requires around 10g less, at 45g per day.

For meat eaters, one chicken breast or pork chop provides over 30g of protein, so getting the rest from cereals, dairy, grains or pulses is pretty easy.

However, plant proteins are significantly lower, so vegans have to put some thought into getting a balanced diet, especially where protein is concerned. That’s where a protein shake as a supplement or a meal replacement can really help.

Women’s Best Vegan Protein Powder   

   

Whether you are a vegan or not, Women’s Best vegan protein powders are a delicious way to boost the amount of protein in your diet.

The brand’s most popular flavours are their chocolate protein powder and vanilla protein powder, which both provide 21g protein per serving.

You can have up to three a day, easily hitting the recommended 45g of protein for women.

It is perfect after a workout, when your muscles have worked at their hardest and your body needs to recover.

For those looking to lose weight as well, each shake contains just over 100 calories and just 1.4g of carbohydrates.

The nutrition comes from concentrated pea and rice protein, so you can be sure it is 100% vegan.

Women’s Best vegan protein powders are also sugar free. Importantly, these protein powders contain the whole range of amino acids, including the essential amino acids that the body cannot make itself.

Whey protein shakes

For those who consume dairy, it is worth trying Women’s Best protein shakes made with whey powder.

A by-product of milk, whey provides more protein than plant proteins.

For example, both Women’s Best Fit Whey Vanilla powder or Women’s Best Fit Whey Chocolate powder providing a minimum of a whopping 23g of protein per serving – that’s as much as a whole portion of grilled salmon!

FAQs

With so many nutritional supplements out there, it can be hard to choose one that is right for you. 

 

Especially when so many are clearly marketed at helping men to build thick, bulky muscle.

 

The Women’s Best range has been designed especially for women because our nutritional needs are just as different as we are. 

 

Most supplements contain amounts of each ingredient designed to suit male requirements so as women we really should be adjusting the serving size – it is a pain to do and many supplements do not even provide guidance for women.

 

Women’s Best is different. 

 

Whether it is a protein powder for women, a BCAA supplement or a workout booster, Womens Best is designed for the female body.

It may well be. Women’s Best supplies a range of whey protein for women formulated to suit the female body. 

 

While the essential ingredients of these protein supplements for women are the same as unisex or male targeted formulations, a Women’s Best protein shake for women contains a slightly lower dose of protein. This is because women require around 10g less per day compared to men.

 

Whether you choose the brand’s vegan protein powder for women or whey protein shakes, the same science goes into ensuring you are getting the right amount of protein for women and women only.

Women’s Best offers a wide range of products to suit every woman. So whether you are looking to put more energy into your workouts or you have been told you need to put on weight by your GP, there is something to suit.

 

For vegans struggling to find enough protein in their daily diet, the Women’s Best range of protein powders can act as a weight gain shake for females. 

 

Combined with a smart exercise regime, both these and Women’s Best whey powders can aid in building lean muscle, maximising your gym session, morning run or exercise class by ensuring your body burns fat as it works.

Women’s Best branched chain amino acid (BCAA) and energy drinks are designed to be enjoyed pre workout for women (to maximise effects, BCAA drinks should be taken before, during and after exercise).

 

These products contain carefully selected ingredients to help you get the very most out of every minute you spend in action.

 

Women’s Best energy drinks contain caffeine, creatine and L-arginine to give you the focus and power you need for the ultimate workout.

 

Those BCAA drinks? They could help to increase muscle growth and give you that last push to get you over the line. That is why they are loved by athletes.

Special attention has been paid in creating Women’s Best products to ensure that they taste great! 

 

From the indulgent chocolate protein powder to the sweet, refreshing peach iced tea Amino and Energy, these supplements are always enjoyable.
