Hi! My name is Rafael and I am the Founder of Vieve Protein Water. I thought I would actually take sometime to introduce myself👋, so you could find out a bit more about my brand, the company and the protein drinks that we make. We’re a tiny little start-up, that is just over two years old, but we’ve come a long way since I had a crazy idea that I decided to turn into reality…
I have been working out and taking protein supplements for over 20 years. I always understood the benefits of supplementing my diet with protein – I was historically quite skinny and never really made any progress at the gym until one day I decided to try a scoop of protein powder. I quickly started to see the benefit of using a combination of powders and protein drinks to supplement my diet. Suddenly I started to seem some actual muscle development and growth – it was amazing! This quickly formed a part of my routine and like a lot of people, I felt I wasn’t really getting the benefit of a workout without that scoop of protein afterwards….
As much as I enjoyed the benefits, I had to admit I didn’t really like the experience and mess of mixing powders with water. Also, the taste of these products was always really artificial for me and left a lot to be desired in terms of flavour. And the biggest problem: I’m lactose intolerant so always had a problem digesting a lot of these products… But like a lot of people I just put up with the negatives, because I saw the befit of taking these protein products…
A few years ago, I was supplementing my diet with A LOT of protein, as I was on a quest for rapid muscle gain. I was taking protein supplements 3 time per day, eating cans of tuna, cooked chicken breast…. I really got to the point where I was taking so much protein, I thought I was going to be sick!
Thankfully at the time I was also working at a water company. One day I looked at a bottle of water and I thought wouldn’t it be great if you could get protein it was refreshing and tasted nice. What if it just tastes like water or a flavoured water instead of protein? Hence the idea was born!
It didn’t happen overnight, in fact it took two years of development and refinement but eventually I settled on a formula that I really loved that was dairy free, sugar free, low in calories, high in protein and most importantly: tasted GREAT!
So that’s a bit more about my journey to creating my protein drink. Thanks for visiting my page and I hope you enjoy Vieve Protein Water!
