Directions of Use
Mix 1 level scoop (30g) of Rule 1 Protein with 200-300ml of water or milk depending on your preference. This product can be consumed on its own or added to smoothies alongside Rule 1 Glutamine and Creatine Monohydrate for the ultimate post gym shake. If you are looking to change things up, try adding a scoop of this protein powder to yogurt, cereal or stir into warm oats for a bowl of creamy, protein-packed goodness.
25g Protein Per Serve
Rule 1 R1 protein contains a massive 25g of protein per serving thanks to its high protein purity percentage of up to 87%. Quality matters, which is why Rule 1 have only included fast-acting whey hydrolysate and isolates – inferior whey concentrates are totally absent here.
The protein in R1 is incredibly fast to absorb, which ensures maximum muscle growth with every scoop.
High quality protein should taste great, which is why Rule 1 have included cocoa for a rich, natural taste. Unlike many other whey protein powders, R1 is smooth, mixes well and avoids the chalky taste you get with inferior whey powders.
120mg Calcium Per Serve
Calcium is a vital micronutrient that your bones can not do without, especially if you exercise regularly. High protein diets and regular exercise deplete the body of calcium, so using a protein shake that has been fortified with calcium like R1 Protein is a must.
Calcium helps bones maintain their density and assists muscular contraction. R1 Protein contains 120mg of calcium per scoop, which is 8% of your RDI.
1mg Iron Per Serve
Iron in the diet ensures muscles are optimally fuelled through the delivery of oxygen by red blood cells.
Iron deficiency causes fatigue, increased injury, and reduced performance in the gym as muscles lack the oxygen needed to function optimally. Iron is vital for overall health, which is why Rule 1 have added 1mg to every scoop.
270mg Potassium Per Serve
Potassium is an electrolyte that plays a vital role in muscular function. Having enough potassium ensures proper muscular contraction, reduces cramping and assists muscle recovery.
Potassium also plays a role in glycogen breakdown during workouts, which provides cells with energy – making it especially useful if you are an endurance athlete. It also helps reduce water retention by pulling sodium and water out of cells.
Other Ingredients in R1 Protein
R1 Protein contains 6+ g of naturally occurring BCAAs to assist muscle hypertrophy and reduce soreness. It also contains Sucralose for a great taste without the negative effects of added sugars. Other ingredients include Lecithin, Acesulfame Potassium, and salt.
How does Rule 1 R1 Protein work?
Rule 1 R1 protein works by increasing muscle protein synthesis when consumed close to a workout. During resistance training, muscle fibres are broken down by the stress they are put through. The body then requires protein to repair this damage, which ideally comes from a source that is quickly absorbable such as R1 Protein.
Regularly consuming R1 Protein alongside resistance training will increase muscular hypertrophy and strength. Rule 1 recommend you take R1 Protein immediately after workouts or first thing in the morning for maximum efficacy.
Who is Rule 1 Protein designed for?
Anyone who wants a high quality source of protein with almost nothing else added. This powder contains only whey protein isolate and fast acting whey hydrolysate, meaning it is also suitable for people with lactose intolerance. It is also easy to blend, meaning you can mix it in a regular shaker cup on the go or at the gym.
Where is Rule 1 Protein manufactured?
Rule 1 manufactures R1 Protein at their state of the art ‘Nutrivo’ facility in Illinois, USA. This facility is GMP certified to ensure the highest standard of quality.
Is the whey protein isolate in R1 fast-acting?
Yes, the whey protein isolate and whey hydrolysate blend in R1 Protein is absorbed very quickly by the digestive system. Hydrolysed whey is the quickest to absorb as it been broken down the most, while isolate is slightly slower to absorb. Both are lower in fat and quicker to absorb than whey concentrates, which are not found in R1.
The lightning-fast absorption of R1 Protein means it should be consumed immediately after a workout. The protein in R1 will reach your tired muscles fast, increasing protein synthesis and ensuring any damage is repaired as quickly as possible.
Does R1 Protein contain any gums or fillers?
Nope, R1 Protein contains no fillers, gums, or creamers whatsoever. You get exactly what you pay for here; great tasting, quality protein with a high purity percentage – and virtually nothing else. Carbohydrates, cholesterol and fat have been almost completely omitted to provide you with a lean and clean source of protein.
Does R1 Protein contain sugar?
Sugars in your diet cause energy crashes and may even hinder recovery, which is why R1 Protein contains zero added sugars.
Instead, R1 gets its great taste from sweeteners and cocoa. As such, this powder contains only 110 calories per serving, making it ideal for cutting.
Why is a high protein ratio important?
A high protein ratio ensures you are getting the nutrition you need – with no harmful extras. Unlike R1 Protein, many cheaper protein powders use harmful fillers that dilute what we actually need in a powder – protein.
Quality matters as much as quantity and not all protein is made equal. To get the most out of your hard work in the gym, look for protein that’s easily and quickly digestible, such as the whey protein isolate found in R1 Protein.
Which is the best Rule 1 Protein flavour?
With 13 delicious flavours to choose from, there is something for everyone in R1 Protein. The chocolate flavours such as mint chocolate chip and chocolate fudge both benefit massively from the rich taste of the included cocoa, so if you are a fan of sweeter flavours, these are for you.
If you are a fan of blending your shakes with fruit or oatmeal for some natural carbs, consider the frozen banana or strawberries and cream flavours for a lighter taste. All of the flavours are easy to blend, so you avoid that clumping texture when left in a shaker cup.
Can I stack Rule 1 Protein with other supplements or protein powders?
Yes, R1 Protein can be stacked with other supplements. To get increased energy in the gym and faster gains, consider pairing it with a pre-workout such as Pre-Amino by Rule 1.
Stacking R1 with another protein powder from a different source ensures you get all the amino acids needed for growth and repair. If you want to do this, consider pairing R1 Protein with a plant-based protein powder to diversify your protein sources.
