•Increases lean muscle mass.

•Maintains lean muscle mass.

•Effective  recovery after a strenuous race / training session.


•People with high protein needs e.g. those with severe wounds/ injuries or immune-comprised patients.
•People who want to increase their protein intake and restrict their carbohydrate intake e.g. ketogenic diet, epilepsy, etc.


•Add 50g (5 level scoops) to 250ml cold water or skimmed milk and blend or shake until all the powder has dissolved.
•Consume ±1 hour before bedtime to ensure optimal absorption. Can be used 1-3 times daily between meals.

•NOT intended to consume directly after training, preventing protein to be utilized as an expensive energy source.

Keep chilled if not consumed directly after preparation.
Keep lid tightly closed and store in a cool dry place.

Nutritional intake and appropriate training regimes play a vital role in increasing lean muscle mass.  Attention should be paid to the following:
  • Follow an individualised periodised training and nutritional program.  Cycle the training regime and nutritional intake.
  • To bulk up, follow a Hypertrophy training program. Increases in lean muscle mass are normally associated with Hypertrophy weight training phases. Minimal increases in lean muscle mass can be expected during Max. Strength, Power, Maintenance (Mixed Training), Transition, Muscle Definition or Anatomical Adaptation training phases.
  • Ensure that your total energy (kcal) intake is more than total energy (kcal) expenditure. An increase of 1000- 2000 kcal per day may facilitate an increase in total body weight.
  • Total protein intake should be 1.5g – 2.0g per kg actual body weight. In specific cases one could consume more than 2g per kg - but for a limited period only.
  • Ensure that you get adequate rest to recover fully.
  • Maintain adequate state of hydration.
  • Be realistic. Aim to increase lean body mass with 250g – 500g per week.
  • Monitor your weight, appearance and make adjustments.
  • Lean muscle mass and body fat percentage are more important than overall weight. Overall weight gains can be caused by water retention or body fat increases.
  • Do not use creatine to increase lean muscle mass. Creatine does not increase lean muscle mass. The main benefit of creatine is to assisst training during maximal strength phases. Creatine causes water retention which makes muscle look bigger, creating a false impression of actual muscle size. Only during hypertrophy training can one substantially increase the muscle size/ weight. Creatine is not recommended during hypertrophy training because the anaerobic alactic energy system is not the dominant energy system used during this training phase and it will hamper monitoring protocols to gauge the success of the training regime.
