PROTEIN FOR WOMEN IS THE SAME AS FOR MEN
Lately it is common to see a large number of brands launching different protein products specific to women and many of you ask us if we will continue that same trend. The answer is a quick and concise “no”. And we won’t if we don’t feel it can be effective, because after all, protein is protein . Protein for women does not exist.
There are undoubtedly many women who practice sports and who could benefit from sports supplements. Like men, they could take a little extra protein to help the muscle in its recovery or some vitamins or minerals to complete possible deficiencies.
Taking Protein will not make you look like a man
There is a perception that if you take the same protein as men then you will end up looking like a man. This could not be further from reality!
It can be understood where this idea originated, since historically sports nutrition products have always been used by men who aspired to develop muscular bodies.
However, what is often confused is the type of training, calorie consumption, and hormonal difference between men and women.
Why is there no protein for women?
Realistically, an active woman should keep the same things in mind when choosing her protein drink:
- The quality of the product from which the protein is obtained
- Is it necessary to mix the protein? Or could it be the best whey protein?
- Protein percentage
None of the previous points are specific for men or for women (perhaps something could be argued regarding taste), therefore a specific protein product is not necessary for each gender, that is, whether it is male or female.
Something that could be different for women is the amount of protein to consume per day. For both men and women who exercise regularly, the recommended amount is 2g of protein for every pound of your body weight.
Generally, the mean indicates that women weigh less than men, so the daily protein intake should be lower. That is, what needs to be changed is the number of servings or the quantity of each, and not the product.

Pink and pretty protein
Something all brands tend to do with women’s products is create aesthetically appealing (often pink) packaging items … and higher prices. The products themselves are no different, so there should be no additional cost simply because they are more attractive.
Brands trying to teach women the benefits of sport and following a balanced diet should be applauded. However, are pink wrappers necessary and increase the price? Whey protein for men is the same whey protein as for women, therefore the price should be the same.
