There are specific nutrients that can help your muscles and body recover quicker, allow your muscle density to build, and help prevent injury or illness from training.


Whey protein (organic grass fed) is used for muscle repair and also helps the body produce glutathione which is a potent antioxidant. It protects against oxidative stress which is increased during exercise. Blanched almonds are nature’s richest source of bioavailable magnesium, needed for muscle relaxation. Banana and coconut water hydrates with water and electrolytes, including potassium, as well as providing natural sugars to replenish glycogen stores. Spinach is a nutrient dense leafy green particularly high in vitamin C, another of nature’s potent antioxidants. VITL Greens provides an extra dose of vital wholefood vitamins, mineral and antioxidants, as well an extra source of protein from spirulina and boost of energy from maca powder.


  • 30g Organic Whey protein
  • 1 sachet VITL Greens
  • 20g Blanched almonds
  • 50g Spinach
  • ½ Banana
  • 200ml Coconut water


Blend all ingredients until smooth.
