SmartShake: the perfect solution for portable protein nutrition

All protein shakers are not created equal.

Ask anyone who has opened their gym bag to find a wet mess inside or who has had to choke down clumps of protein powder that didn’t quite mix well. It can bring a swift end to what could have been a very healthy, nutritious regime designed to lose fat and build lean muscle.

The SmartShake is a protein shake lover’s dream.

Made from high-quality products that are BPA and DEHP free, the SmartShake is 100% leak proof and can be stored in the freezer, heated in the microwave and put in the dishwasher. Its design, compact yet light, has three separate compartments, allowing you to store several servings of your favorite nutritional supplements such as protein powder, creatine, vitamins and pre/post workout supplements. In addition, the strainer-mixer snaps on so that there are no loose parts. SmartShake can also be completely personalized for corporate branding purposes.

The SmartShake comes in a variety of colors and sizes, depending on the series. For example, the Neon Series (pictured) only comes in 20 ounce (600ml) size while the Jay Cutler Gold Edition comes in the 27 ounce as well as the 20 ounce size.

SmartShake is sold at GNC stores and retails for $14.99.
