Is 180 safe to take while breast feeding?

180 has only natural ingredients with no hidden surprises and is fine to consume while breastfeeding.

Will it help me build muscle?

Absolutely!! 180 is a high protein food source designed to assist muscle growth and to aid fast recovery after exercise. The protein is derived from totally natural ingredients (also packed full of micro nutrients & antioxidants) and premium grade whey protein isolate, for lean and firm muscle development. If taken on a regular basis, you will notice improved stamina and energy during training, especially resistance training. Your recovery is only as good as the food you eat.

Will it help me lose weight (body fat)?

Yes. If you want to lose body fat and sustain/improve good health, we suggest exercising a minimum of 3 times a week and eating 4-6 small meals a day, and supplement 1-3 of those meals with a serving of 180 made into a protein shake. If you have cereal or toast for breakfast, sandwiches for lunch etc, or any processed carbohydrate simply, replace these with the serving of 180 protein shake, giving you a high protein meal replacement. You’ll be amazed at the difference in no time at all. For more information about healthy eating download our free ebook here.

Can I use 180 when pregnant?

The answer is yes. The extra protein, essential fatty acids, fibre and minerals will be of benefit to you whilst pregnant. You should use it as an addition to your exsisting daily diet for snacks in between your meals.

I’m lactose intolerant, can I take 180?

We use whey protein isolate with no milk solids, meaning the protein is isolated from the rest of the dairy. While there are minimal traces of lactose left in the formula many people who are lactose intolerant are happily using 180.

We also offer a vegan version that is 100% free of dairy, learn more about it here.

Is 180 free of gluten?

Yes, all of our products are 100% free of gluten, peanuts, egg or wheat and contain no artificial colours or flavours.

I have yeast allergies, can I take 180?

We use inactive brewers yeast (not to be confused with bakers yeast) as it is specifically produced for it’s rich B vitamin complex, especially B12. This will have no effect on any yeast allergies.

What is the protein-carb ratio of 180

A 50g serve of 180 is approximately 50% protein, 25% fat & 25% carbs. Included in this of course is the vitamins minerals and fibre. Of the 25% carbs a large percentage is non-digestible fibre, so you could say that the actual carb content (that which effects blood sugar) could be as low as 15%.

Naturally, what you blend with 180 will effect this ratio. Milk or water… Banana or avocado etc…

Whey Protein Concentrate (WPC) vs Whey Protein Isolate (WPI)

Whey Protein Concentrate (WPC) is much cheaper to produce than Whey Protein Isolate (WPI) making it the choice for many manufacturers. This is because WPC still contains milk solids and lactose making it much higher in carbohydrates and sugar (lactose) which we feel isn’t beneficial because this effects your blood sugar and insulin levels.

We use WPI as there is very minimum lactose and carbohydrates and it’s also rich in amino acids. It’s also produced by happy grass-fed cows rather than the feedlot corn-fed option.

Our grass-fed WPI makes up about 30% of the total ingredients in our natural superfood. Combined with the rest of the ingredients, this gives you an excellent nutrient dense food source.

How many serves per bag?

There are approximately 30 serves in a 1.5kg bag and 90 in a 4.5kg bag. A serve is 50g and each bag will contain a scoop, a heaped scoop will provide a 50g serve.

What’s The best way to take 180?

Our favourite method is to make a smoothie, as it won’t dissolve like regular protein powders, due to the fact it’s real raw protein food at it’s finest. We recommend taking it with water, your choice of milk, natural yoghurt etc, or simply shake/stir or drink! Or you can sprinkle it on salads, make muffins, as it’s a raw product it’s very diverse!

Is there a best time to take it?

We recommend taking it any time daily by replacing a less nutritional meal or snack, especially flour or sugar based foods, giving you a high protein meal replacement. Over time you’ll feel a substantial difference by doing this.

How long does 180 natural protein supplement last?

Our 180 protein supplement is an exceptionally popular product, which means it has a high turnover, so our stock is never usually more than 1 week old from when it is crushed and produced. It is our up most priority that our product is freshly delivered. 180 has a shelf life of 9 months. To sustain the 9 months once opened, we recommend keeping it cool and out of direct sunlight.

Where is the nutritional information?

All of the nutritional information for the 180 product range can be found on each product page. The nutritional tables are shown after the full ingredients list like the example here.

Do you offer any other flavours?

180 Natural Protein Superfoods is offered in two flavours, both chocolate and coconut. These ingredients are derived from raw natural sources. Other flavours like strawberry, vanilla, banana or cookies and cream have to sweetened and preserved (which is usually a chemical process).

Can I get a free sample to try before I buy?

As 180 is a natural product it isn’t cheap to produce which is why we have offered our starter packs. These packs allow you to sample our product without committing to the full size first.
