The nutritional info

Bananas are full of vitamin B6, which is essential for the metabolism of amino acids and building new muscle

Berries are a source of vitamin C, which is key in the formation of collagen to help rebuild connective tissue

Milk contains saturated fat, which is a vital building block for testosterone – a key fuel for big lifting sessions

Peanut Butter is rich in muscle-building protein, unsaturated fats that lower LDL (‘bad’) cholesterol, and fibre

Whey protein is water-soluble, so it’s quickly absorbed, providing amino acids to rebuild your muscles

Creatine can help to improve the supply of energy-boosting ATP, which increases your muscles’ capacity to lift.
