Resolved to get fit this year? Giving your body a solid foundation is a great idea at any age, but even more so as muscle mass deteriorates with age. One smart and easy fitness flex is to supplement your diet with high-quality protein powder. Nope, protein powders are not just for athletes and body builders — and yes, they can help build up your immunity, too.
Today on Amazon, protein powders and energy supplements by Optimum Nutrition are on massive sale — we’re talking up to 50 percent off for a supply that’ll last you months. There are tons of options to choose from, and they all come in delicious flavors like chocolate, vanilla and watermelon.
Think you’re already getting enough protein from your regular diet? It turns out older adults should get up to two times the recommended daily allowance of protein, according to leading research. Let’s check out a few highly discounted protein powders and energy supplements that can get your health on track.
Whey, an animal-based protein, can help grow lean muscle mass, especially when you combine it with a regular strength-training workout. Save 50 percent on this five-pound tub of creamy chocolate protein powder, which you can mix into shakes and smoothies.
“I’m not a body builder by any means. I work out about three times a week and I use the protein powder for a post work out shake or for a quick breakfast,” wrote one of more than 46,000 five-star reviewers. “The protein powder as a shake is pretty delicious. No weird aftertaste like many other powders, and it’s really filling.”
