Had Enough of Artificial Sweeteners? Try Our Range of Natural Supplements!
Artificial flavourings are known to cause some unpleasant side-effects. Because of these side-effects, an increasingly large number of athletes are starting to look for natural supplements to add to their training routine. Nutrients Direct has you covered though, because our natural supplements range does not contain any artificial flavourings. Let us take a closer look at the natural supplements range and discover what kind of natural supplements you can obtain today!
ND Naturals Complete (Meal Replacement)
Many athletes who use a meal replacement with artificial flavourings experience digestive distress afterwards, especially when they are sensitive to certain additives. If you fall into this category of athletes, ND Naturals Complete will be the answer to your problem.
ND Naturals Complete is the recommended meal replacement for weight loss and for good health in general. The formula does not contain any artificial flavourings, but a natural sweetener called stevia.
Athletes focussed on weight loss will appreciate ND Naturals Complete the most. The supplement contains high levels of protein, which enable you to silence hunger feelings for longer. The formula also contributes to lean muscle growth thanks to a sustained release of amino acids into the bloodstream.
Even though ND Naturals Complete does not contain the same number of calories as a normal meal, it does give you the amount of carbohydrates you need to get energy during your training. Our meal replacement also consists of dietary fibres, which can make it easier for you to digest the supplement.
To use ND Naturals Complete as a meal replacement, add approximately one level scoop (55 grams) of the supplement to 250 ml of water. The supplement can be used up to maximum of two times a day, however, please make sure you combine the meal replacement with a good diet plan. When in doubt, discuss your health and fitness goals with a nutritional expert or your physician.
ND Naturals WPC
Weight loss, muscle building or general health; these are just some of the goals that can be obtained through the use of ND Naturals WPC. If you are looking for a supplement that can fulfil multiple functions during your training, but does not contain artificial sweeteners; this supplement will be the right choice for you.
In order to make the ND Naturals WPC supplement as effective as possible, Nutrients Direct uses an ultrafiltered whey protein concentrate. This ultrafiltered whey protein concentrate uses the so-called “semi-permeable membrane technology” to ensure a high bioavailability. Bioavailability is term used to describe the amount of a substance that is being absorbed and used by the body. Subsequently, the higher the bioavailability, the more of the supplement will be used by your body.
The ND Naturals WPC supplement has a natural high level of branched chain amino acids. Branched chain amino acids or BCAAs are three specific amino acids: leucine, isoleucine and valine. The combination of these three amino acids are most commonly used by people who do not have a sufficient amount of protein in their diet, or by athletes looking to promote the muscle protein synthesis; this is the process that increases our muscle growth over time. In some cases, branched chain amino acids can be used by people who are starting an exercise program after a long time of inactivity, considering branched chain amino acids also have the ability to prevent fatigue.
One of the best benefits for most athletes using this supplement is the medium digesting nature of whey protein concentrate. Because of the fact that WPC has a medium digestion rate, the body is fuelled with branched chain amino acids longer; this could be beneficial for your training as well as the muscle recovery process.
Instead of using the artificial sweeteners most companies use in their supplements, Nutrients Direct has used a natural sweetener in ND Naturals WPC. The natural sweetener is called stevia; this is a fully natural product which adds a great taste to your supplement shake.
The calories you consume on a daily basis can be important for muscle growth as well as weight loss. Athletes focussed on weight loss should not worry with ND Naturals WPC though, because this supplement only contains 118 calories per serving. If you use the supplement only once a day, this will not put a dent in your total calorie intake for the day.
ND Naturals WPI
ND Naturals Whey Protein Isolate is used for weight loss, sports performance, muscle building and general health. The formula itself contains of premium cross flow micro-filtered and ultrafiltered whey protein isolate, which provide high levels of essential amino acids as well as branched chain amino acids.
Essential amino acids and branched chain amino acids play a major role in muscle growth, so this supplement is extremely suitable for athletes trying to increase their muscle mass.
People who are trying to lose weight can use the supplement as well, because an increase of muscle mass will make calorie burning a lot more efficient. The formula only contains a low amount of carbohydrates and fat as well, so this formula will not have an impact on your low-fat or low-calorie diet.
Our natural form of whey protein isolate is also one of the best sources of protein with a high bioavailability; this means that the supplement will be used by the body in an efficient manner. The natural whey protein isolate does not have any artificial sweeteners in its formula either, since Nutrients Direct uses the natural sweetener stevia.
When using ND Naturals WPI, it is extremely important to do a good amount of exercise as well. Supplements can only be effective when used in combination with sufficient exercise, since using a supplement on its own will not have as big as an impact.
To use your ND Naturals WPI, simply add a scoop of the supplement to 250 millilitres of water. Alternatively, athletes can also use some skimmed milk for extra flavour. Then, shake for thirty seconds and consume your shake within thirty minutes of making it.
