Our whey protein shakes support muscle growth to help you stay strong.
As you get over the age of 40, it gets harder to maintain muscle mass, tone and strength.
The gradual loss of muscle is a normal part of the ageing process, but it can result in muscle weakness, poorer coordination and a loss of balance, increasing the risk of falls, fractures and frailty, leading to a loss of mobility, loss of independence and a poorer quality of life.
It's due to things we can’t control like hormonal changes and reduced absorption of dietary protein, but it’s also because we tend to eat less and exercise less, and this can put us at greater risk of other age-related health conditions like obesity, osteoporosis and type 2 diabetes.
researchers know that consuming that the right amount of the right kind of protein directly after resistance training can be an effective strategy to build or maintain lean muscle mass.
Bodybuilders and athletes know it – that’s why you see them drinking protein shakes - but the people that could benefit the most, adults over the age of 40 are neglected. There are simply no protein supplements designed for their specific needs.
You see it’s not the protein itself that’s important, but the amino acid composition. One branched chain amino acid (BCAA) in particular, leucine, helps your body repair and grow muscle tissue.
But there's a catch: the older you are, the more leucine you need to trigger muscle protein synthesis. If you don’t get enough leucine in your diet, then you will struggle to maintain muscle mass, tone and strength.
If you want to stay strong, choose a protein supplement designed for your age.

30g of protein per serve
Nutrition experts now recommend more protein, not less, as you age: up to 1.5g of protein per kg body weight to maintain muscle mass. This is equivalent to 90g for an average 75kg person, or 3x30g spread throughout the day.
3.5g of leucine per serve
Leucine is an essential branch-chained amino acid (BCAA) that triggers muscle growth and repair. Research shows that leucine requirements increase as you age, so you may not be getting the benefit you need from your current protein supplement.
Research shows that consuming protein within 90 minutes of exercise, or alternatively spreading protein intake throughout the day, is an optimal strategy to support muscle maintenance and growth while delaying the onset of age-related muscle loss.
After the injury my doctor suggested I take a protein supplement. It had to be free of sugar and artificial anything, but most of all, it had to taste good.
