Blue Label Whey® adds 28g of the highest quality whey protein per serving. This aids recovery and muscle growth. It will also help people to lose excess weight. BLW also contains probiotics for healthy gut activity.
Oats have a high fibre content and are known to help remove cholesterol from the digestive system that otherwise ends up in the bloodstream. They also contain antioxidant compounds called avenanthramides, these compounds contribute to anti-inflammatory and antiproliferative activity, providing additional protection against coronary heart disease and colon cancer.
Good quality almond butter is an excellent source of healthy fat and also contains key minerals such as calcium, potassium, iron and manganese.
Cottage cheese is high in protein and contains healthy fatty acids, making it a great substitute for milk. Its mild taste ensures added protein without affecting the flavour.
