Vitality Nutrition feel it is vitally important to break the common notion that protein is only for elite athletes and body building.
Protein is essential for a healthy mind and body. It’s needed for cell repair, fat loss, building muscle, boosting our immune system and assists in the balancing of hormone and blood sugar levels. Not getting enough of it can cause muscle loss, decreased immunity, heart problems and respiratory issues.
We should never overlook how important quality protein intake is in out diet. Its equally important to note our modern, busy lifestyle is almost unavoidable. Adding a quality natural, chemical free Protein that is free from GMO's, and harmful chemicals as close to nature as possible into our daily routine has allowed us to find a way to help not only athletes, but everyday individuals, to shape up, lose weight and improve overall health by integrating a few key ingredients into their daily routine.

WPI is the liquid portion of the milk that separates from the curds during the process of making cheese.
