Pure Protein Supplements from Worldwide Sports Nutrition

Protein is a necessary part of everyone’s diet. They promote the body’s growth and maintenance. The US Department of Agriculture recommends that people on a 2000 calorie diet should eat 50 grams of protein per day. The best way to get protein is by eating meats, fish, beans (including soy products such as tofu and veggie burgers), nuts and seeds. But for some people, this is not enough. For those needing more protein in their diet, such as bodybuilders and weightlifters, a wide range of supplements are available. The most commonly used are whey based supplements such as the Isopure protein supplement from Nature’s Best and Worldwide Sports Nutrition’s range of Pure Protein Supplement shakes and bars. This article will focus on the latter.

Pure Protein Supplement Shakes

Pure Protein Supplement shakes come in five different flavors: Banana Cream; Cookies and Cream; Frosty Chocolate; Strawberry Cream and Vanilla Cream. Each 11 ounce can provides 35 grams of protein, giving you 70% of your recommended daily allowance based on a 2000 calorie diet.

The cans are sold in packs of 12 and are available on Amazon, where customer reviews give them an average rating of 4½ stars out of a maximum possible five. Whilst one reviewer found the Frosty Chocolate flavor too sweet, most said that it tastes surprisingly good for a low calorie sports drink, without the graininess that one would normally expect from a whey based protein drink. They were praised for their ability to build lean muscle mass and, because they are low in calories, they won’t make you fat, just muscular.

Pure Protein Supplement Bars

Whilst the shakes were Worldwide Sports Nutrition’s original Pure Protein Supplements, it was their Pure Protein Supplement bars that really revolutionized the sports nutrition market. Available in 10 flavors (Strawberry Cheesecake, Smores, Cinnamon Graham, Chocolate Deluxe, Peanut Butter, Chewy Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Cappuccino, Honey Nut, Maple Pecan, and Blueberry Cheesecake), the 78 gram bars which, like the shakes, are sold in packs of 12, replace a full meal.

They were not the first sports nutrition bar on the market, but unlike most, they “taste as good as any candy bar”, to quote a reviewer on the website intense-workout.com. They are also low in carbohydrates and fat, and provide 15 essential nutrients, including calcium, iron, zinc and vitamin E.

Each bar contains 270 calories and 30 grams of protein, and is filling enough to satisfy your hunger for several hours after eating them. They are therefore perfect for those on a low-carb diet.
