Having a protein shake can absolutely have an impact on your energy levels. Your diet plays a major role in how energetic you feel throughout the day.
In fact, eating a nutritionally complete and balanced diet is one of the best ways to maintain your body's optimal energy level. Protein in particular is important for both your metabolism and other essential functions, and rounding out your diet with high-quality protein in your personalized protein powder can have a positive effect on energy levels.
Gainful does not add any stimulants or caffeine to any of our protein powders. However, having a protein blend that contains fast-digesting carbohydrates like our organic tapioca maltodextrin can help you perk up, whether you're having a protein shake post-workout or simply during a mid-afternoon slump.
Lastly, you may receive a protein powder blend with a small amount of green tea extract. Green tea extract contains a negligible amount of naturally-occurring caffeine (5 mg, approximately 1/20th of a cup of coffee). You can easily consume more than that by eating chocolate or drinking decaf coffee.
All in all, good sleeping habits, regular exercise, and thoughtful nutrition are all crucial for having enough energy to get through your day. Having a nutrient-dense protein powder can certainly contribute to a well-rounded diet.
