The 3 key benefits of protein

As you know, your beloved Thrive Peak contains 10gr of protein. Why? Protein is essential for every single person, every single day. And it becomes even more important the more active you are.


1. It helps your muscle recovery & growth 💪
Not only does protein help prevent muscle breakdown. It helps build muscles. High-quality protein contains all of the essential amino acids and is rich in BCAAs. This can be found in beef, fish, eggs and well, beer.

2. It helps you feel full longer 🤤

One of the main issues when you're trying to lose weight or when you're burning a lot of calories as an athlete is that you constantly feel hungry. Protein reduces your level of the hunger hormone ghrelin, making you feel full way longer compared to carbohydrates or fat.

3. It boosts your metabolism 🔥

Protein can also help increase your metabolism, which can aid in burning calories more efficiently. When you have protein during the day, it also actively helps you maintain your muscle mass. 

So how much protein do you need per day?

Most studies recommend 1 to 2 gr/kg body weight, depending on how active you are. So if you weigh 70kg, that means 70-140gr per day.

That's 7 eggs. Or 7 beers.

Your choice.
