A little while ago I went to the gorgeous Scarlett London’s Bloggers Festival. It was my second blogger’s event and it was absolutely eye-opening as to how big it was. I got the chance to meet some very lovely brands and their owners, as well as the chance to get something small and special for my friend. It won’t be long before I write a post about the event, but today I wanted to talk about the brand that caught my eye the most, Vievė.
On the day we were offered a small sample of each of their drink flavours to try. I immediately fell in love with their Strawberry and Rhubarb flavour, while Nathan loved their Citrus, Apple and Mint flavour. Some of these flavours you would never imagine them working together, but I promise they do. Aside from me, many other bloggers that day also fell in love with that brand, why? Because in all their drinks, there is zero sugar, zero protein, and TWENTY grams of protein.
So Why is Protein So Important?
As a current student studying Biomedical Science in London, I feel very qualified to explain just exactly what protein is and why it’s so important to us. Because I feel like it’s a word that thrown around a lot, but not many actually knows what it is.
To put it simply, proteins are made of a combination possibility of 21 amino acids, and it’s basically the building blocks of the human body. Proteins are in charge of the body’s growth and repair, hence why everyone that goes to the gym is all about proteins, as proteins can help gain muscle mass and help their body recover. However, not every amino acid can be produced naturally by the body, so some requires us to gain them by eating & drinking.
The Different Flavours
Aside from the well-loved Strawberry and Rhubarb, and Nathan’s favourite Citrus, Apple and Mint, they also have a third one, Coconut and Honey. Best thing about these is that there is not any artificial favourings or colours, so no matter how bad protein tastes (trust me, it’s bad), all you can taste are very natural, appetising flavours.
What Else is Special about Vieve?
I’m glad you decided to ask that, because they are actually the first sports-nutrition product to achieve a Sugarwise certification, stating that it is in fact sugar free. In addition, Rend Platings, the founder of Sugarwise, stated himself that they were “proud to work with Vieve, the very first company to take protein water to the masses”.
I can honestly say that I am extremely happy to be working with this amazing brand, I can see its success and popularity soaring to the skies and it will definitely become people’s favourites. I can’t wait to see what new ideas and flavours they bring out next! If you want to give them a try, they are available from selected Superdrug stores.
What about you? Would you be giving these wonderful protein goodies a go?
