    what it can do for you

    How Hero Protein benefits your body

    HERO protein is better at enhancing your lean body & metabolism than whey or plant proteins for 4 key reasons:

    1.  HERO is made from fresh, grass-fed Australian micellar casein.  Casein has a remarkable effect on the metabolism, sleep quality, body fat reduction, thyroid, stress, blood-sugar and lean muscle preservation

    2. HERO contains no sugar alcohols or artificial colours, gums or thickeners.

    3. We've added synergetic superfoods like glycine, 5 types of digestive enzymes, probiotics and minerals to further enhance HERO's body composition improving benefits.

    4. Did we mention HERO can be used as a custard dessert or as a smoothie?  Revolutionary!

    Digestion of casein takes up to 12 hrs, so it has a very low effect on stimulating insulin, and is blood-sugar regulating.  Casein is far superior to plant or whey protein powders for lean body composition and metabolism improvement.  

    • Made with fresh, grass-fed Australian micellar casein protein
    • Rich in essential amino acids & calcium for stronger muscles and bones
    • Casein is an important preserver of lean muscle (far more powerful than whey)
    • When compared to whey, casein contains less inflammatory amino acids
    • HERO is enhanced with 5 types digestive enzymes and probiotics to make digestion easy (even if you've struggled with protein powders in the past)
    • Micellar casein takes around 12 hrs to fully digest, making it an excellent nutrition tool for sleep and to help regulate blood sugar and metabolism during the day.
    • Very low fat, zero refined sugar, no sugar alcohols
    • Gluten free, soy free, additive free, PUFA free, vegetarian friendly
    • The salted caramel is stevia free

    How to use Hero Protein

    Mix 35g (3 to 4 heaped tbsp) with 80 to 100ml of your favourite milk & stir well to create a creamy custard, or mix into a smoothie or shake. Enjoy as dessert, a post workout shake, or as a high protein snack.  

    Zero refined sugar, nothing artificial, no gums, no fillers. Made in Australia from pasture raised cows. 

    My Way Up Favourites:

    • warm it up in the microwave or on the stove.
    • make a bowl with berries & homemade granola. 
    • cut a papaya in half & put the custard in the middle.
    • make epic smoothies and shakes out of it - it gets nice and creamy !
    Why does it taste so good?

    Hero Protein has a wonderfully sophisticated taste.  Here's why:

    1. We've added in extra glycine.  Glycine is a powerful antioxidant amino acid that's arguably the most important anti-ageing, pro-metabolic amino acid on the planet.  It also tastes sweet.

    2. We've added coconut water powder, which is absolutely jam packed with important vitamins and minerals - and it tastes sweet! 

    3.  We use a very small amount of stevia leaf extract on all the flavours other than Salted Caramel (we used monk fruit instead).  Because we mostly flavour HERO with coconut water powder, we just have the smallest possible amount of stevia.

    What flavour should I get?

    Our recommendations are:

    French Vanilla is super flexible - it works great for fruit based smoothies, or sprinkle berries on top of your HERO custard.  It's a very creamy, rich taste.

    Swiss Chocolate is incredible as a pre or post workout shake.  It goes great as a delectable chocolate smoothie with dates, a little coconut oil and any type of milk.  

    Salted Caramel is a very refined taste.  It's not too sweet, and is absolutely lovely on it's own as a shake or custard.  This is for you if you love subtle luxury (it's also stevia free).

    Italian Hazelnut works best when blended with Swiss Chocolate or French Vanilla.  That's how we prefer to use it.  In a smoothie, add milk of your choice, a little maple syrup or honey, some cinnamon and cacao powder - wow!

    Strawberry Cheesecake is a party in your mouth.  It's velvety, sweet, creamy and absolutely tastes like cheesecake.  We literally make high protein Strawberry Cheesecakes out of this!  Get some and we'll give you the recipe.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Questions? We've got Answers.
    How does Hero Protein help fat loss?

    Casein has been repeatedly shown to result in greater rates of fat loss than other types of protein.  This is most likely due to its longer digestion time, low effect on insulin, and excellent amino acid profile for the metabolism.

    One study performed out of Boston tested casein vs whey protein on measures such as lean muscle gains as well as total fat loss whilst performing resistance training.

    While both groups did show fat loss, the group using the casein protein showed greater mean fat loss and higher increases in strength and lean muscle.

    Another mechanism for the fat loss seen in those who regularly use casein is the rich calcium content.  High calcium and low phosphate intake is critical for restoring not only great metabolic function, but also strong bones.  We measured one bowl of Hero Protein custard made on skim milk to measure 800 mgs of calcium with only 400 mgs of phosphate - the exact 2:1 ratio that is important to aim for.

    Why use casein instead of whey?

    Casein has a superior muscle sparing effect, is gentler on blood sugar and has a less inflammatory amino acid profile when compared with whey.  This makes casein a far more appropriate source of nutrition for people looking to optimise their metabolism, regulate blood sugar, preserve lean muscle & bone tissue, and sleep for longer.

    If muscle gain is very important to you, taking Hero Protein approx. 3 hrs before a workout will result in an excellent muscle sparing effect during your workout - resulting in faster recovery times, and greater gains in lean muscle.

    Most whey proteins have cheap filler ingredients like soy protein and soy derivatives, sugar alcohols, gums and thickeners, and cheap protein concentrates.  Hero Protein uses nothing but science backed, finest quality natural ingredients to enhance the look, function and feel of your body.

    Where do you source Hero Protein?

    Hero Protein is made with Australian micellar casein protein. Fresh, pasture-raised Australian milk is filtrated at low temperature and dried into a highly concentrated & premium micellar casein powder with a non-denatured (native) protein structure for optimal function.  

    It's then mixed with synergistic superfoods, probiotics and enzymes in Brisbane, Australia and sent to you.

    I've dropped 25kgs

    I've been having chocolate hero protein since it was first launch. I mostly turn it into a custard which just finished my night off really well - get me a big dose of casein protein and stops me looking elsewhere. I'm actually a big Way Up devotee. And Steve even used to train me a long long time again when he worked at Goodlife gym.

    Following the meal plan that I got from Steve and working with My Way Up coaching software, over the past 8 months I've dropped 25 kgs of fat (and put on a few kgs on muscle!). Now - I've worked my butt off, and I was in pretty bad shape to begin with. I strength train too of course.

    I just really appreciate the quality of Hero Protein - all my mate take it too. Thanks guys - can't wait to get on the hazelnut and strawberry.
