When to Take Our Supplements

In case you’re not familiar with our complete collection of nutritional supplements, allow us to talk you through what we’ve got and when’s the best time to take them. Formulated in collaboration with one of the world’s leading manufacturers of nutritional supplements, each of our products is packed full of healthy simple ingredients and created to support your fitness regime and a healthy lifestyle.

PRE-WORKOUT

Essential BCAA Powder

When we exercise, our store of amino acids depletes, meaning it’s important to replace them if we want to reap the most rewards form our workout. Taking Workshop’s Essential BCAA Powder before or during your workout is a great way to impact your post-workout and load up on the amino acids that are so needed for recovery. Formulated specifically with post-workout recovery in mind, it contains three branched-chain amino acids, leucine, isoleucine and valine, three essential amino acids which the body can’t produce. Each of these have been chosen because they prevent muscle loss, support muscle recovery and trigger protein synthesis, but BCAA Powder also contains L-gluthamine, an amino acid which supports muscle growth and recovery and helps reduce gut inflammation and repair the gut lining, which can become damaged when exposed to excess alcohol or processed foods. To take it add approximately 2 heaped teaspoons into water and mix well.

POST-WORKOUT

Organic Pea Protein Formula

Protein is fundamental in the structure, function and maintenance of the body’s tissues and organs. It’s important for people who work out because it helps support and repair muscle damage and growth, but proper protein and amino acid intake is crucial for everybody, as it helps to support the immune system, maintain energy levels and enhance sleep. Unlike many other protein powders which use a blend of rice and pea proteins, our Organic Pea Protein Formula is derived only from fermented yellow peas which allows for easy absorption and digestibility. To take mix approx. 2 scoops into 250ml of water or milk alternative daily or take as part of your post-workout smoothie or shake.

Essential Greens

Sometimes getting all the greens we need can be an impossible task, which is why we formulated our Essential Greens. A supercharged greens powder, it contains a whole host of organic fruit and vegetables in one serving, which not only contributes towards glowing skin and better gut health (via fibre and also inulin, a natural, soluble prebiotic that helps stimulate the growth and activity of healthy gut bacteria) but a healthier immune system too. It’s also loaded with mood-boosting iron, beta carotene and vitamin C, all of which help maintain proper function of the immune cells in the gut, and the antioxidant-rich greens powder includes broccoli, spirulina and nettle leaves, which help reduce inflammation and protect against diseases and illnesses caused by inflammatory free radicals. Getting enough greens can also help balance out mood and increase the abundance of neurotransmitters such as dopamine and serotonin in the brain, which are responsible for helping you feel happier and more contented. Leafy vegetables are also high in magnesium which plays a critical role in post workout recovery, regulating our stress response and helping to improve fatigue, tension and anxiety. Our formula is also formulated with digestive enzymes, which means your body is better able to absorb the essential nutrients it needs from the greens. To take it, mix approx. 1 tablespoon into 250ml water or milk alternative daily or take as part of your favourite smoothie or shake.

DAILY

Gut Cleansing Formula

Whether it’s uncomfortable bloating, irregular bowel movements or abdominal pain, disorders such as these can have a huge impact on day-to-day life and can, in some cases, indicate more serious underlying health issues. Our Gut Cleansing Formula was created to help provide a healthy and sustainable way to look after your gut and to provide your recommended daily dose of fibre, which most UK adults are deficient in. The formula features a soluble and insoluble blend of 12 essential fibres, which assist the reduction of bad cholesterol, protect the body from oxidative stress and support healthy brain function and lower inflammation. Fibregum tan, one source of fibre is a prebiotic that supports growth of good gut bacteria, is high in antioxidant-rich polyphenols which promote the growth of good bacteria and prevent that of bad bacteria. To take it mix 5 grams (approx. 2 teaspoons) in water daily.

Probiotic + Prebiotic

Keeping our gut in good health is one of the most important ways to safeguard our health. One way to keep the gut functioning well is to arm it with a good defence system in the form of prebiotics and probiotics. Prebiotics are dietary fibres that feed the good bacteria in your gut and help protect your microbiome, the microorganisms such as bacteria and funghi that live in our digestive tract. Your gut also needs probiotics to keep your bodily systems strong and healthy and contribute to a healthier, more balanced microbiome. Getting a regular source of probiotics has also been shown to reduce digestive issues and support better immunity, which is why our Probiotic + Prebiotic contains a good balance of multiple strains of bacteria for maximum efficacy, as well as a high number of colony-forming units. With 20 billion live and active bacteria in each serving, including lactobacilli, which helps to break down food more effectively and aids of elimination of bad bacteria in the gut, and bifidobacteria which aids digestion and helps eliminate harmful food-born pathogens, it’s an easy and effective way to promote better gut health. to support your gut health every day, take 2 grams (approx. 1/2 teaspoon) with water daily.

Multi Vitamin Formula

Often, it’s not ideal taking a big handful of vitamins every day, which is why we formulated our Multi Vitamin formulation. A superfood blend of all the goodness you need daily, it’s rich in cleansing green tea, rosemary to boost circulation and the immune system and grape extract, which is known to help alleviate oxidative stress from free radicals. To help keep your immune system boosted and promote a more anti-inflammatory state, it also contains naturefolate which contributes to healthy cell growth, n-acetyl cysteine which promotes healthy brain function and alpha lipoic acid to keep blood sugar levels steady and sustain energy levels. Formulated with chelated minerals to promote increased absorption and improved benefits of all the ingredients, the natural fruit flavour makes it a delicious daily drink and it’s easily digestible. To take mix 8 grams (approx. 2 teaspoons) in 8 ounces of water daily.
