Why use a protein powder?
Protein powders are a great addition to your diet as they are an easy on the go snack when you are unable to prepare or obtain real food. Protein powders are also beneficial as you are able to obtain a dense source of protein, which can increase feelings of fullness and assist in muscle recovery. Adding protein powder to your diet can substitute for eating carbohydrate rich foods, which are shown to contribute to weight gain.
How are MHA protein powders different from any other protein powder?
My Health Addiction is created using only natural high quality ingredients that are chosen because they serve a purpose and have a positive effect on the consumers health. Most protein powders are made using poor quality protein (think cage eggs versus free range). They will also use fillers (milk powder), artificial sweeteners (Sucralose, aspartame) which can damage gut health and artificial or "natural" flavours, both of which can contain more than 100 different chemicals, including preservatives, solvents and other substances. Bottom line is we create products that are as close to real food as possible, out of ingredients that will have a positive impact on your bodies health.
