For Goodness Shakes Protein Shake Review
Regardless of the ‘New’ tag on the bottle, these have actually been around for a while and appeared on the shelves of the grocery stores before MaxiNutrion became mainstream enough to have their Promax Milk products appear in stores. So what was it about these that made them more appealing to the masses?
It bridges the gap between protein shakes for gym rats and just anyone who is in to exercise that would prefer the added benefits of a protein hit after a run, cycle or gym session. They’re smooth like a milk shake (the packaging looks a bit like a popular milkshake) and convenient, it meant you could actually walk down the street drinking a protein shake without the usual big shaker that some people may feel a little self conscious about using in public. They’re handy for a gym/kit bag
These are so fortified I cannot list all of the ingredients, however, if you look at the picture below, you can see it is a comprehensive list and there are a good few stand out elements.
Protein is an important building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood. Along with fat and carbohydrates, protein is a “macronutrient,” meaning that the body needs relatively large amounts of it. You get a lowly amount of protein to the tune of 20g per bottle.
The main ingredient here is whey protein which is sourced from milk in this product, you can read more about the properties of milk protein:
And, the list continues, you also have Vitamin C, E, Iron, Potassium (helps prevent cramp in muscles), Calcium etc.
Importantly, for testosterone production you also get a shot of:
Vitamin B6 – Vitamin B6 helps testosterone levels by stimulating androgen (a steroid hormone that acts as a precursor for testosterone) receptors in your body, making your testes produce testosterone.
Magnesium – Research into magnesium supplementation also increased testosterone production in men.
Zinc – Studies show that this has a link with healthy testosterone production.
Folic Acid – Folic acid can help produce more testosterone along with B12 but also necessary to form red blood cells and is also necessary in the formation of DNA.
Vitamin B12 – Studies show that people who are anaemic tend not to have high levels of testosterone because they cannot absorb vitamin B12.

Drink a bottle within 25 minutes of exercise or just as a protein enriched alternative to a regular sugar laden milkshake from the chiller.
The biggest negative is price. It is $2.90/£2.00 which could be a bit cheaper considering the low protein count. And that brings me on to the protein, for the size of the bottle I am a bit disappointed to see there is only 20g of protein. I appreciate that this is also a fortified recovery drink but it does have a HUGE protein text on the front and ProteinActives Protein Shot is absolutely tiny yet offers 20g of protein and a similar nutritional profile too for $1.15/£0.80. ProteinActive’s ActiMilk is even cheaper and offers 26g of protein – both of which taste way better than this.
My Review Conclusion:
Unfortunately this is bettered by alternative products that are better tasting, offer more in terms of nutrition and are much cheaper. The packaging is swish, they’ve opened up a new market but have been overtaken.
