Protein 35% Dark Chocolate Equilibra® is a food supplement with high protein content and vitamins.
I am back again with another protein snack. And I got excited when my friend saw this at Eurospin, a local supermarket here in rome. And I said, well, this is gonna be in another article!
We are all aware now that protein contributes to the increase and maintenance of muscle mass. So anything with high protein will help a lot especially to anyone who likes working out and have an active lifestyle. The formulation of this Equilibra bar is enriched with Vitamins C and B1 which contributes to normal energy metabolism, while Vitamins B2, B6 and pantothenic acid contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
Take 1 bar per day after a sporting activity. And according to the product description, it is advisable to accompany the intake of the bar with water.
I really appreciate that on their website, there’s an indication about how to eat this protein bar.
Like most food supplements and vitamins, this is supposed to be safe to eat. And I also already mentioned on how cautious I am when it comes to taking anything. It is not like I don’t trust the products, but it is just my personality in general and I treat everything cautiously from medication, vitamins and even food. I firmly believe in moderation.
So just heed their recommended dose and warnings to avoid undesired effects. The description of the protein snack points out that the recommended dose should not br exceeded. This bar is absolutely not a substitute for a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle. It is not intended for children. And most importantly, always ask your doctor’s opinion.
Another thing that you should be aware of is that this bar is not advised in case of kidney and liver diseases; pregnancy and under the age of 14.
I am really surprised about this. Because out of all the protein snacks I have researched about and discussed here in my blog this is the only one with indications about diseases and warnings. And I am glad Equilibra mentioned all of these. Being cautious as I am, I do appreciate all of these mentioned.
