3 Easy & Quick VADE Smoothies

Protein Made Easy

What is protein? How much protein do I need? When should I start adding protein to my lifestyle? All questions we have all wondered at some point or may still be wondering. We are here to help! Protein can be intimidating and there are so many protein powders on the market which can make it hard to find the perfect one for you.

What is protein?

Proteins are made out of smaller molecules called amino acids. These are linked together- think of a string bean. Some of these amino acids can be naturally produced by the body while others we need to supplement from the food and drinks we choose to fuel our bodies. This is where protein powder can be a beneficial way to supplement these essential proteins.

Why do we need protein?

Protein is the essential building block for our bodies. It helps our bodies build muscle, bones, organs, hair, nails and skin. Without protein we would not be able to survive, thus protein is essential to implement in our daily lives for a variety of reasons that play into the daily function of our bodies.

How much protein do I need?

This will vary for each individual based on your weight, height and activity levels. It is suggested that you can calculate your daily protein intake with the simple equation of 0.4-0.6g protein per pound of body weight.

For example, if you are 150lb then your daily suggested protein intake would be 60g protein. We can get the majority of this from the food we eat, as well as adding protein powder to our diets.

Build Your Immune System 

Protein is an essential building block of your immune system and crucial to stay healthy, help steer clear of disease and fight off viruses. As mentioned above, the amino acids found in protein are the building blocks of all the body's cells. This includes the cells that power your immune system.

To ensure a healthy and strong immune system it is essential to get your daily protein intake. This will help fight off infections, ensure quick recoveries, expedite the healing process and keep you healthy especially during the cold and flu season.

Protein Can Be Delicious 

It can be challenging to find the perfect protein powder for you. There are endless flavors, brands, nutrition standpoints and benefits to choose from. This is why it's important to choose a protein powder that's perfect for you and your goals.

With 20g of protein, 90 calories, 1g carb and 0 sugar or fat, your nutrition is of the upmost importance to us.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      Our Story:

      My name is Joe Johnson. My wife Megan and I started VADE Nutrition while I was in college and wrestling for Michigan State, and while Megan was in the hospital preparing for our son to be born. The inconvenience of lugging around tubs of protein or measuring my servings of protein into little plastic baggies was a real problem that had no solution, so we created one. We thought to ourselves, ‘why not pre-measure every serving of your nutritional supplement into a pack made out of a dissolvable food-grade film so that there’s no scooping, no measuring, and no mess?’ When this idea came to us we immediately knew that we were going to be the ones to create it and revolutionize the industry.

      Within months we filed a Patent for the technology and started the development of our first product; our 100% Whey Isolate Protein. Megan and I both said from day one of the business that we would never create a product that we didn’t 100% believe in and take ourselves. We always make sure that our products are priced so that anyone can afford them. This is why our products are extremely high quality and fairly priced for the everyday consumer.

      Over the years we’ve grown in huge ways, with product expansion and nationwide retail expansion. We even landed a deal on ABC’s Shark Tank from Mark Cuban and Alex Rodriguez, but we’ll always hold true to our vision to make real nutrition really convenient for real people. Our real mission is to glorify God’s Kingdom with our lives and our business and to make this world a better, cleaner and healthier place.
