A professional athlete’s review of Nuzest Clean Lean Protein Bars

Ben Allen is a World Class Professional Triathlete with over a decade of racing experience. He is a 20 x World Tour Off-Road Triathlon Champion, 2 x National Off-Road Triathlon Champion, National Adventure Racing Champion and 3 x Australian Surf Life Saving Champion. Here’s what he has to say about our Clean Lean Protein Bars.

“I’m super excited that Nuzest has developed a protein bar. Its packed full of everything you need, all natural, high in protein and 100% plant-based.

I have a crazy training schedule, some days with 3-4 sessions in a day and I especially find it difficult to get the proper nutrition in-between sessions to keep me fuelled and recovered correctly. That’s where Nuzest Clean Lean Protein Bars come in handy. I know exactly what I’m putting into my body is going to help me replenish my energy levels and give me energy to go again.

If I’m out on a long ride 3-4hrs I take a bar in my jersey pocket and have it towards the end of my ride to kick-start the recovery process and prepare my body for the following session. I love pea protein as my body absorbs every once, combined with the raw seeds, nuts and fruit. You can’t get anymore natural than that.

I store the bars in all my modes of transport (car, motor bike etc) and in all my bags I take to training (swim bag, run bag etc), just in case I forget I know I have a great source of healthy and nutritious snack waiting for me.

You can’t compromise your health, without your health what do you have… It doesn’t have to be hard work to be healthy or stay healthy. Nuzest is making your life and mine, so much easier by sourcing the cleanest and healthiest ingredients, combining them together and allowing us to reap the rewards on and off the racecourse.

Checkout what Nuzest has to offer and how much they care about wanting you to succeed in living a happy and healthy life.”
