Giveaway: Day 7 - 180 nutrition natural protein

There are so many protein powders and bars and blends and pre-workouts and fat blasters and hormone influencers on the market these days. In 2012, according to sales data collection agency AZTEC, Australians spent $80 million on sport food making it one of the most rapidly growing sectors of the health market.

While there is definitely a need for good quality supplements, there are so many that are just full of fillers, chemicals and bits and pieces that haven’t even been tested for safe use in humans. Statements on the pack promoting all kinds of quick results are often not backed by any evidence and it can be really easy to get caught up in it all! These supposed ‘quick fixes’ still manage to sell like hot cakes… protein powder hot cakes.

There are definitely benefits from using certain supplements, and for various athletes they are essential for enhancing their performance, but what disappoints me is that, for a group of people who focus so hard on training and heavily promote ‘clean eating’, they seem to forget these rules when it comes to their supplements.

Recently though, there has been a new wave of supps hitting the shelves. A more natural breed, which I’m thrilled about. One in particular caught my eye from the guys at 180nutrition. They have managed to combine top quality grassfed whey (or pea protein for their vegan variety), with a mix of really nutritious foods including flaxseed, almond meal, coconut flour, pepitas, chia seeds and sesame seeds. The mix is then naturally sweetened with stevia. These guys are onto something and say it best in the quote on their website:

 “180 Natural Protein Superfood is a fuss-free way to have a quick snack without sugar or processed ingredients. It’s loaded with fibre, protein and good fats and helps you eliminate bad food, trim down or recover after exercise if that’s your thing” – Guy & Stu 180 Nutrition
