Vital Strength has recently made a name for itself as an athlete-fuelling supplement line, thanks to sponsorship of a number of Australian sports stars such as Jonathon Brown and Jarryd Hayne. Vital Strength offers one of Australia's largest lines of sports supplements, with everything from protein powders to fat burners and pre-workouts.
Hydroxy Ripped Workout Protein is the thermogenic protein powder in the Vital Strength range, combining three protein sources with three thermogenic ingredients and a whole host of vitamins and minerals. Hydroxy Ripped is designed to help speed recovery and muscle growth as well as fat loss.
- Protein - Vital Strength Hydroxy Ripped contains protein from three sources: whey protein isolate, whey protein concentrate and calcium caseinate. These are three excellent protein sources derived from milk, which means they are complete protein sources, containing all the essential amino acids. With a fast and slower-digesting protein sources, your body will receive a steady stream of amino acids necessary for growth over a number of hours.
- T3 Thermophase - This blend combines hydroxycitric acid (HCA), l-carnitine and chromium picolinate, which combine to assist the fat burning process. HCA helps reduce the absorption of carbohydrates by fat cells, while carnitine increases the ability of body fat to be used for energy and chromium picolinate helps use glucose for energy (rather than storage).
- Vitamins & Minerals - Included in Hydroxy Ripped to support overall health and wellbeing, adequate vitamin and mineral intake is vital for athletes.
