Over the past few years, tons of companies have announced women-specific sports supplements, answering the call for our unique training and nutrition needs. One of the newest entrants to the scene: Iovate’s recently launched StrongGirl products, available exclusively at GNC and Lucky Vitamin Stores. This essential stack of supps includes StrongGirl Isolate, a whey protein shake; StrongGirl Pre-Workout; and StrongGirl Smart Weight Loss. They are engineered to be taken alone or together, depending on your goals. Here’s how this new line can help take your training, performance, and aesthetic goals to the next level.
Not all protein products provide the same benefits. This product contains a mix of whey and soy protein isolate, a combo that research shows is more effective for supporting lean tissue than either alone. In addition, the Support Blend contains hydrolyzed collagen and silica, which help strengthen tendons and ligaments as well as hair, skin, and nails.
StrongGirl Isolate also provides a range of nutrients that are especially beneficial to active women.
These include many vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients that support growth, health, and recovery. Finally, the unique Enzyme and Probiotic Blend provides digestive enzymes that help your body best utilize the protein isolate while providing a microflora environment that helps improve overall GI health. Each one-scoop serving provides 18 grams of protein with only 80 calories, and the mix is available in Decadent Chocolate and Vanilla Ice Cream flavors.
When you want a little bit more of an edge before training sessions, give this pre-workout product a try. Each one-scoop serving provides more than three grams of a scientifically engineered Energy and Focus Blend. Included in the mix is beta-alanine, an amino acid that increases strength at the muscular level; caffeine (125 milligrams per serving) to stimulate your CNS and encourage your body to fuel activity with stored body fat; and taurine, an amino acid that helps increase endurance for better workouts and performance. This product is available in both Strawberry Mojito and Cosmopolitan Fruit Punch flavors, and it contains only 20 calories per serving, with no sugar.
StrongGirl Smart Weight Loss
This potent thermogenic contains a blend of ingredients that boost energy while increasing metabolic rate to support your goal of reducing stored body fat without burning valuable lean tissue. The weight-loss blend contains green coffee extract, Garcinia cambogia extract, and forskolin. To enhance energy and focus, the product provides caffeine (135mg) and amla and caraway extracts. This robust formula helps you burn body fat and avoid any training setbacks that could result from a reduced-calorie program to shed body fat.
