Today we’re going to talk about a huge supplement brand, MyProtein.
If you haven’t heard of them already, where have you been hiding?
MyProtein have now been giving us gains over 11 years now and has grown into a huge Sports Nutrition brand. From initially conquering the UK, they are now the number one brand in Europe.
They are now expanding to the USA and other continents across the globe in the bid to become the biggest Sports Nutrition brand in the World by the year 2020!
What we like about MyProtein is that they are very affordable, yet still continue to give you the quality of product which you need and want.
Also the packaging of the products, especially the supplements we are talking about below are not in big hefty tubs which just get in the way. The bag is nice to fold and pop in your gym bag with no fuss.
