Protein Active Protein Shot Review
We’ve previously come across little known brand Protein Active with their creatine tablets, ZMA, Beast bars, protein milk and now I have discovered their 20g protein shot sachets. To be honest I am quite excited about these and could be perfect for many sports.
Unlike many of Protein Active products, this bucks the trend and looks more like a supplement, it feels and looks like a premium product, something the creatine and ZMA tablets fail to do. I am more bothered by the actually effects and value over looks but these got my attention on the shelf and I immediately bought their remaining stock.
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 whopping shot of 20g from a product that only wheys (geddit?) 40g.
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.

Take a shot of this straight after sport or up to 15 minutes beforehand.
Well, I am struggling to see any negatives if I am being honest, it doesn’t even taste that bad, it is like a fruit flavored yogurt.
My Review Conclusion:
A fantastic product, I love these and am so happy I found them on the shelf. Immediately after a game of rugby I need a hit of protein but sometimes eating a protein bar or having a shake is just too much for my stomach and I end up waiting for ages until I do. With these little sachets I can have it straight away, not only to feed my muscles with the protein but also assist my immune system with the multivitamins and minerals, plus the multiple testosterone boosting ingredients!
