Who should take instant protein?

Instant protein can be used by people who are looking to increase their protein intake or enhance their diet. It can be used by people who are looking to increase their body mass, promote skin health or assist their immune response. It is recommended as a way to reduce the risk of heart disease, when added to a diet low in cholesterol and saturated fat. People who need extra calories due to reduced appetite or malnutrition should consider taking instant protein. It is also for the nutritional management in various medical conditions that require a specific diet.

Instant protein (also known as protein powders/replacements) is a quick and easy way to replace or supplement your diet with additional or required protein. Someone who is in need of additional protein would drink this with or after a meal that is low in protein or possibly if the individual was looking at increasing the number of calories they needed daily. If you are interested in using a protein powder or instant protein supplement, we offer a variety of meal replacement and protein replacement/supplement drink choices on the dotFIT group page:
