Half Human Plant Based Protein Blend

Build lean muscle and take your recovery to the next level with the Half Human plant-based protein powder. This is not your typical grainy, chalky tasting protein powder. Half Human has gone all-out to ensure the texture, taste and mix-ability are something that you have not experienced before. They have not stopped there though. Alongside the Pea and Brown Rice protein base, they have fortified this product with extra Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) and L-Glutamine to take your recovery to the next level and boost lean muscle tissue growth. What’s the best thing about this product? It uses natural colours and sweeteners and includes no soy, lactose or other nasty irritants! For years, vegan friendly protein shakes have had a bad name. Bad flavours, chalky texture and not mixing well. Half Human is changing the plant-based game. Their Vegan Protein has been designed with taste in mind. The flavour is unparalleled and the texture unrivalled. This has all been done using high-quality ingredients and natural sweeteners. They have fortified the Brown Rice and Pea protein sources with 5 grams of additional BCAAs and L-Glutamine to make sure you are getting the ideal mix to support lean muscle tissue growth and recovery. Each serving delivers 25g (0.8oz) of protein making it far easier to reach your protein goals, 8g (0.3oz) of gluten-free carbohydrates (only 0.6g/0.02oz sugar!) and 0.2g (0.007oz) of saturated fat.

PROTEIN SHAKES, PROTEIN POWDERS AND BARS

 

Protein is the key to muscle recovery, growth and repair. Not only does adequate protein intake support exercise performance and endurance, but protein can help you meet your body mass goals, whether that's to lose or gain weight.
Protein supplements in particular provide ready to use amino acids, which can instantly support your body when active.
To make it super easy to incorporate additional protein into your diet, we have a wide selection of protein powders, bars and blends.

 

WHAT DOES PROTEIN POWDER DO?

 

We offer many different types of protein powders and it can be hard to choose - make life easier with our simple guide:

 

WHEY PROTEIN POWDER

Mainly used to encourage muscle growth, support lean body mass and aid recovery. Whey protein contains many essential amino acids and is a popular choice for muscle growth when used after exercise.

VEGAN PROTEIN POWDER

Providing a top-up of key amino acids, vegan protein is a great way of ensuring adequate essential AA intake and can be an asset for muscle growth for a vegan athlete.

WEIGHT GAINERS

High in both calories and protein, weight gaining protein powders are an invaluable way to help you bulk out and increase your muscle mass rapidly and efficiently.

CASEIN PROTEIN POWDER

This is the one to go for when you want to recover post-exercise. Slower to digest than other protein powders, casein helps muscle recovery and repair so you can get back to action quicker.

 

FAQs

 

ARE PROTEIN SHAKES GOOD FOR YOU?

Protein shakes can be a useful addition to your active lifestyle. They can aid muscle repair/recovery and can help you either lose or gain body mass depending on your requirements.

ARE PROTEIN SHAKES GOOD FOR WEIGHT GAIN?

Protein shakes, if taken in addition to your regular calorie intake can encourage weight gain, as protein, in high doses, stimulates insulin which promotes fat storage. Taken outside of exercise, extra protein can also encourage weight gain, as you haven’t used it up during a workout.

WHEN SHOULD I DRINK PROTEIN SHAKES FOR WEIGHT LOSS?

Protein shakes can keep you fuller for longer, prevent overeating and help you reach your inbuilt protein target. They can be used to replace a meal once a day as part of your weight loss plan or used post-exercise to encourage lean body mass. Alternatively, they can be used as a snack replacement instead of less healthy, higher calorie options.

CAN I DRINK PROTEIN WITHOUT EXERCISE?

You can, as your body needs enough protein every day regardless of your exercise levels. Protein intake stimulates your satiety hormones which prevents overeating, and protein shakes can make a good alternative to high calorie, carb-heavy snacks. Just remember to balance your macronutrients throughout the day.

HOW DO PROTEIN SHAKES WORK?

Protein shakes provide your body with readily available amino acids. These AA’s can then be used to encourage new muscle growth, and aid repair and recovery, as required. Unlike protein in the diet, which requires breaking down and digesting, protein shakes provide ready to use amino acids.

ARE PROTEIN SHAKES GOOD FOR FEMALES?

Protein shakes are just as useful for women as men, if not more so. Women can sometimes lack enough protein in their diet, especially when on a calorie controlled/ weight loss plan. Protein shakes can help women to gain lean body mass and recover post-exercise.

WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS OF TAKING PROTEIN POWDER?

For most people protein powders cause no issues. Taken in excess, there may be some mild digestive discomfort, and if used in addition to meals/without additional exercise they may encourage weight gain in some individuals.
