There are so many different diets and supplements available on the market. Whilst we at Studio One believe in a healthy balanced diet, we understand that it is not always possible to eat perfectly when we have a busy life.
We therefore want to start to highlight not only ways to enhance your diet, but also the truth of various supplement myths. Here is our take on supplementing with Protein Powder, along with experts Live Innermost.
The Studio Says
A healthy diet and being aware of what you are eating is key to a healthy body and mind. We have to be realistic though, and a busy life, stresses and strains of city life and working can lead to everyone needing a little help sometimes.
Our bodies need energy to operate and we eat different types of energy from Carbs and fat to Protein. Each type of energy is used by the body in a different way, which is why there are different kinds of diet. Your body also burns more calories metabolising protein then fat and carbs.
Increasing protein in a diet releases hormones that help regulate weight. Your brain releases appetite-reducing hormones and reduces the amount on hunger hormones in your body. You are basically fuller for longer, and less hungry. Along with the energy boast provided by the protein you should sweat for longer burning fat and toning.
Combine some extra protein with our Method classes that incorporate HIIT training and mindfulness and you will be body confident in no time!

What is Protein and what does it do?
It is also central to the creation of cells, muscle and hormones in your body. It therefore enhances immunity and builds muscle. The more muscle you have not only will your metabolism increase but you will be more toned.
Protein is an important nutrient made up of amino acids, which are the building blocks of skin, hair, nails, muscle and tendons. Protein also ensures your immune system is functioning properly and has been shown to keep you feeling fuller for longer keeping hunger pangs at bay better than carbohydrates or fats.
Why should you supplement with protein?
Food can take while to be broken down and ingested. A shake or powder can get to work in your body quicker.
Protein is especially important for those who exercise. You know the feeling of sore muscles the day after a workout? That’s a result of microtears in your muscle fibres that need to be repaired and amino acids are a critical component of that repair process. The good news is that as those muscle tears are repaired, you grow stronger and fitter. You can of course get your protein from food but it takes more time for your body to break it down and often it can also contain saturated fat, cholesterol and other things you don’t need.
Our tailored range of superfood protein blends are a convenient and highly bioavailable source of protein. They’re all packed with the right essential amino acids including high levels of leucine, which is the amino acid that is the most important in the rebuilding process.
More than just a great source of protein, each of our unique blends contain a bespoke mix of the most effective natural ingredients to help you achieve different goals across four categories – strong, fit, health and lean. And because each blend is created from the ground up, they each contain the precise balanced combination of ingredients you need with no artificial flavours, colours, GMOs or mystery ingredients.
