Teenagers? Not so much.
They are not only physically demanding, but emotionally demanding as well. Teens keep ridiculously late hours, giving sparkly vampires a run for their money.

As their loving care givers, we are given the ominous task of trying to make sure that all of these needs– the ones that they are dutifully neglecting– are not only being met, but “please finish your homework”, too.
See? Exhausting. And all you did was read about it.

It starts working at the cellular level to rebuild muscle and to aid in the muscle recovery process. It comes in a one ounce package and contains 15 grams of protein. The other thing to note is that with Provide Gold it is already predigested with fruit enzymes, so when it enters the body it will be immediately absorbed. Unlike those heavy protein shakes that leave you feeling full and could leave you feeling bloated during your workout.
“Protein molecules are notoriously hard to break-down by the body. There is usually a long time lag between eating protein and its’ eventual absorption and utilization by the body,” said Dr. Joyce Gilbert. “For example, some protein products will not benefit the body for many hours. However, Provide Gold is different in that it benefits the body immediately rebuilding muscles and aiding in recovery.” Provide Gold’s 1 Shot Protein Supplement delivers nearly 100% absorption at the cellular level.
Provide Gold can help in the teenage body’s absorption of all the necessary calories to help aid not only in the recovery process from exercising but in the overall caloric intake of a growing teen body.

"I started taking Provide Gold™ during my sophomore year of high school. It works great! It is the only protein product I will ever take. I dramatically increased all my max’s in bench press, squats and power cling and added 20 pounds of muscle. It made all the difference to my sports career."
