Tropical Protein Shake

Tropical Protein Shake

Grapefruit, mango, and pineapple bring the tropics straight to you in this sweetly sour Tropical Protein Shake. You’ll be strengthening immunity, lowering cholesterol, and aiding digestion with every gulp. Sure, it’s great to sip on while relaxing on the beach and soaking up some vitamin D, but its true intention is to help you maximize your workouts and build muscle. Drink it 30 minutes before and during your next workout, and see if you don’t feel almost superhuman. We dare you!

Keeping You Healthy With…

Grapefruit: Full of immune-boosting vitamins C and A, grapefruit helps keep your appetite quiet with fiber and promotes better blood sugar control. It is also low in calories and high in hydration effects, which supports weight loss.

Mango: Subdue the sour notes of grapefruit with the sweet taste of mango, high in vitamin C and fiber for cholesterol-lowering benefits. Mango is known as the “love fruit.” Does it really boost libido? You be the judge!

Pineapple: This tropical fruit is plentiful in vitamins, minerals, and enzymes that strengthen immune health, keep your bones strong, and lend a helping hand to your digestive system. Although their sweet taste feels calorie-rich, pineapple is actually low in calories and a great food for weight loss.

Coconut butter: Medium-chain fatty acids (MCTs) in coconut butter help the body burn energy (code for shed fat!). This energy is then used to boost mental and physical performance, so be sure to put it to good use!

Coconut water: Made up of 94% water and just a teeny amount of fat, coconut water goes beyond meeting hydration needs and delivers a nice percentage of fiber, protein, vitamin C, magnesium, manganese, potassium, sodium, and calcium. It may even help defend against kidney stones, diabetes, and heart problems. 

MCT oil: Get a concentrated dose of energy in a tablespoon of MCT oil. MCT oil helps keep you fuller for longer, supports weight loss and gut health, and boosts brain energy metabolism by up to 9%. 

Amino Co Perform: Maximize strength, focus, and endurance with Amino Co’s Perform in blue raspberry or grape flavor. This patented blend of essential amino acids has been proven to double muscle protein synthesis from exercise and improve concentration and stamina during a workout.
