For whom is protein powder useful?
Protein shakes are often associated only with bodybuilding. Thereby protein powder can be a useful addition to the normal diet for everyone.
Whether you’re looking to build muscle, lose weight, sculpt your body or just improve your overall fitness, protein powders can help you achieve your goals more easily and efficiently.
The supportive effect of protein on muscle building has been scientifically proven and is recognised by the European Food Safety Authority.
In combination with the rest of your diet and the right training, you ultimately decide what your dream body looks like.
What does protein powder help you with?
With intensive training and the goal of efficiently building muscles, the protein requirement of the body increases significantly.
Due to the amino acid combinations developed specifically for this purpose, protein powders ensure a faster activation of protein synthesis and excellent usability compared to normal nutrition.
If not enough protein is supplied during intensive training, the body will fall back on its own protein reserves – this leads to muscle breakdown.
Building muscle and losing weight often go hand in hand. Exercise burns body fat and strengthens muscles at the same time.
A trained body consumes more energy due to a higher basal metabolic rate and in this way in turn helps you lose weight.
At the same time, protein shakes are a good alternative as a snack in between meals. These satiate longer and are lower in calories than carbohydrates and fats.
When body shaping, we aim for a slight calorie deficit in order to lose excess body fat.
While carbohydrates should be avoided, protein plays a particularly important role.
Only through an adequate protein intake can we ensure, with a comparatively small amount of calories, that the body does not use muscle proteins as an energy supplier, but only the directly supplied proteins and fat reserves.

Your needs for a fit and defined body
For adult non-athletes, the German Nutrition Society (DGE) recommends a daily protein consumption of 0.8 g per kilogram body weight and day.
However, effective muscle building requires a protein intake of 1.3 to 1.6 g per kilogram body weight – regardless of gender. In case you want achieve a very strong muscle building, up to 1.8 g protein per kilogram of body weight is necessary.
Since the body can only absorb and process a limited amount of protein (about 30 g) per meal, the protein intake should be as continuous as possible.

Everyday life and the protein gap
To cover your protein needs completely through your diet is quite possible – but very costly and partly not feasible in practice. The following examples make this clear.
POWDERme® Organic Protein
Only what you really need
In the food sector, there is a strong trend towards natural and organic products. Fast food is becoming increasingly unattractive. This development is not only good for our body, but also thanks our environment.
We would like to apply the same standard to our sports nutrition. Our goal was therefore to develop a product that focuses on what we really need – namely protein, from high quality and organically produced raw materials, without artificial additives. The result is impressive – our POWDERme® organic whey-based Whey Protein and our organic Vegan Protein made from rice and pea protein.
The natural flavor makes these especially great for your healthy fruit smoothie, porrige, and more….
POWDERme® supports you in your nutrition and your goals – naturally, ecologically and climate-neutral.
