Why it's good for you

As well as muscle-building whey protein, these tasty treats contain other health-boosting ingredients:

Beetroot
Research has shown that beetroot's high content of nitrates produce a gas called nitric oxide in the blood, which widens blood vessels and lowers blood pressure.

Honey
A great natural source of carbohydrates, honey can boost performance while in the gym and even reduce muscle fatigue. Plus, unlike refined carbohydrates, the sugar in honey is quickly absorbed into the blood for fast effect.
