In the context of sports supplementation, protein supplements play a key role in enabling athletes to achieve their protein requirements, which are often very high and vary according to body size and training.
Different scientific reference societies, such as the American College of Sports Medicine, recommend a protein intake for athletes of between 1.2 and 2g/kg bw/day, even reaching quotas of 2.2-2.5g/kg bw/day for power sport or body building athletes, as opposed to the recommended amount for healthy sedentary people (0.8g/kg bw/day). These variables are subjective and also depend on the duration and intensity of the sporting activity.
In this section you will be able to choose the best formulation to suit your needs: for vegans, gluten-free and lactose-free, obtained from different food sources, with high biological value and easy digestibility.
To help you choose the best protein for you, we have decided to summarise the main characteristics and timing of use for each class of protein blends.
