ÂŽ PROTEIN Milk Cyclone 30g of protein for lean muscle maintenance and recovery A natural source of BCAAs Naturally contains Glutamine Fat-free No added sugar

THE POWER OF PROTEIN Protein provides the body the building blocks for all structural cells, so if your goal is to gain muscle, increase strength or even reduce body fat, whilst maintaining lean definition; meeting your individual protein needs is essential. During exercise muscle tissue is broken down, to adapt to the training the body repairs this muscle tissue with dietary protein, therefore as exercise and activity level increase so does the need for protein. Active individuals who are looking to maintain and develop muscle should consume between 1-2g of protein, dependent on training and goal for example an active 80kg man needs 80-160g (Kreider et al., 2010). Since convenient high protein snacks are sometimes hard to find, Protein Milk can help individuals meet these guidelines.

BCAAs The branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) are leucine, isoleucine, and valine. BCAAs are found in many protein rich foods such as dairy, meat, fish and eggs. BCAAs are considered essential amino acids, because the human body cannot produce them itself and therefore they are required from the diet. BCAAs and in particular leucine; have been shown to activate muscle signalling pathways that stimulate protein synthesis during the recovery period after exercise (Blomstrand et al., 2006).

Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body and has recently become regarded as conditionally essential rather than a non-essential amino acid (Newsholme et al., 2011). It is commonly found in high protein foods such as meats and fish, and is used in the body for cell growth and fuelling the immune system. During periods of heavy training, glutamine levels fall in the body which can suppress the immune system and increases the risk of infection (Castell et al, 1996).

Available in Banana, Chocolate and Strawberry flavour.


Suitable for vegetarians. Contains milk.

Consume Protein Milk after exercise to aid muscle recovery, between meals as part of a snack to help meet individual protein needs.
