Natural Exercise Drinks Instead of Powdered

Our life is getting faster and faster. We want quick results on every stage, in health, physically, mentally, spiritually, in work, at home, and generally in everything. We don’t have much time to spend for ourselves, because we are running, just forgetting about that possibility of getting sick. And if our life is changing, who is going to run?

Let's try to prevent the problems, be a good master of your body, take care of it, even if it takes a little more time and understanding.

In today’s fast world we can easily buy an often-useless and the most harmful health products in the market. Many of us just don’t want to be muscular, we only want to be fit or weigh normally. But some of us wants to build more muscles or lose weight and we hope there is a “miracle capsule” or a drink, a shake of protein. Get something quick and helps quick. Always the lighter resistance!

Even in the expense of your most expensive treasure: your health...

Mainly men are taking these muscle-enhancing “drugs” to develop their beautiful muscles, women mostly use protein shakes for diet or a dietary supplement.

It is true that the muscle is protein, and to increase it, it needs building materials, but really, doesn’t it matter what kind of protein we use?

That is a fatal mistake if somebody thinks that by drinking protein shake or taking capsules, muscles begin to grow. You have to work your muscles, and only those muscles grow when you work out. To grow your muscles and workout, you definitely don’t need protein shake because you can easily find protein in natural food sources like:

  • meat
  • dairy products
  • vegetables
  • legumes
  • and also cabbage has a lot of protein.

100 grams of chicken meat contains 20 grams of protein, but this quantity is on 200g of lentils, and 750ml of whey. Normal mixed diet of 100 grams of protein a day is introduced, which is more than enough for muscle growth if you don’t want to be a body builder or the new Hercules.

Therefore, taking protein powders are completely unnecessary

and even excessive protein intake can cause kidney problems, dehydration, fatigue; makes you irritable; change your gut flora. Unfortunately and additionally, the quality of the product is not appropriate, because it's often made of (or contains) collagen proteins, animal skin or cartilage, and others extracted from the slaughterhouse waste; and many more ingredients for color, better taste, and so on.

Many people buy these artificial protein shakes hoping fast results without work or if it is possible, with less energy expended.

So please, think about your health before using them and be more patient.

The situation is similar with the fitness drinks also.

For an hour of intensive movement, simply water is suitable. These energy drinks promise higher performance, because they have salt in it which is lost when sweating; magnesium for the muscle cramps; caffeine to enhance performance; and sugar to increase the energy level. For longer and more endurance-requiring sports, you only need carbohydrates and sodium. If someone plays the sport, dieting with this drink consumption will spoil half an hour of hard work.

10 best natural proteins after work out

  • Whey
  • Omega-3 and Omega-6 – mostly vegetable oils contain that, but Omega-3 is quite rare. The richest source of protein is the yellow-fin tuna
  • Egg
  • Milk, cottage cheese, mozzarella
  • Caviar and roe
  • Chicken, turkey, or other white meat
  • Beef or veal
  • Watermelon and pumpkin
  • Pork, but it must be lean
