ALL ABOUT PRO-TEEN®
WHAT IS PRO-TEEN®?
PRO-TEEN® is the first food supplement specifically designed for youth athletes with selective diets, offering a variety of health benefits. Each shake contains a specific blend of nutrients including protein, fats, carbs and 16 essential micronutrients tailored to the unique requirements of a youth athlete. It is designed as a recovery drink or meal replacement for athletes to enjoy after intense exercise when good quality whole foods aren’t available.
WHAT MAKES PRO-TEEN® SPECIAL?
Youth athletes are at a greater risk of nutritional deficiencies than the normal population, due to their training loads, busy schedules and rapid periods of growth. PRO-TEEN® was developed by evaluating these common nutritional deficiencies and the heightened need for specific nutrients important for growth and development. These include calcium, vitamin D, phosphorous, vitamin B12 and vitamin B6 plus a lot more, which you can learn about here.
These elevated nutritional needs of active youths coupled with selective eating habits or lack of time, make it vitally important for an athletes diet to support normal growth, health and development in combination with participation in high-level sport. PRO-TEEN®'s main objective is to promote maximum performance and longevity in sport, in order to help youth athletes succeed at every level.
