As consumer we are spoilt for choice when it comes to ways to supplement our protein intake: powders, drinks, savoury snacks and (our favourite of course 😜) waters. So the question people often ask is one form of protein better than the other? If you are supplementing your protein intake, what is the best way to do it?
The answer is: there is no one preferred method to supplement your protein intake. It all depends on your personal preference and your goals. Some people hate the mess & inconvenience of protein powders. Who like carrying a messy shaker around that stinks up your gym bag all day? Other people don’t like heavy, thick milkshakes that are often high in sugar. Who wants a thick shake after a really intense workout? That’s where protein waters work really well! They also allow you to hydrate and top-up on your protein WHILE you work-out. No other supplement is really suitable for a protein boost while you work-out.
The other important factor to consider is your own goals: how often do you need to supplement your protein intake and what are your macros goals (we’ve got a great blog post written about this by our resident nutritionist here). If you are looking for a clean macros hit of protein, without any sugars or fats then powders or protein waters might work well for you. Vieve Protein Water as an example has 20g protein, zero sugar and only 80-85 calories per bottle. If you are looking for a ‘clean’ hit of protein then Vieve could work really well…
Protein Water offer an alternative way to supplement your protein intake, that is hydrating and high in protein while also being sugar & fat free and low in calories. As they can be consumer while you work out, they act as the proactive protein solution allowing you to hydrate and top-up on your protein at the same time. Everyone has their own preference when it comes to supplements, what works best for you depends on you as an individual and your own fitness goals.
