Protein shakes for women? That’s what Boxd Health claim to have made. Protein shakes with added vitamins and minerals ‘to re-energise you, to nourish you and help you to feel focused, refreshed and strong.’

Most protein shakes are unisex, or for men, at least from a marketing point of view, so what makes Boxd Health protein shakes especially good for women?

The have added:

  • Iron – lost during menstruation (many women are anaemic without realising it)
  • B Vitamins – these turn food into energy and are needed in higher amounts in busy women or women who workout
  • Vitamin D – being inside, living in northern hemespheres and sun protection (don’t give up this last one) mean we can’t make the vitamin D we need. Vitamin
  • D is important for immunity – you’ll have seen it in the fight against covid. (you can test your Vitamin D status here)
  • Vitamin C – great for collagen production, i.e. healthy, young looking skin, as well as immunity
  • Flaxseed – provides healthy fats and fibre for joint, digestion and skin health
  • Electrolyte complex – electrolytes are lost when you sweat, and lack of electrolytes can leave you dehydrates and lethargic

So what’s in them?

None of the shakes have artificial ingredients.

The vanilla plant protein ingredients are:

Pea Protein Isolate, Xylitol, Hemp Protein, Natural Flavouring,
Golden Flaxseed, Potassium Gluconate, Calcium Carbonate, Thickener: Guar Gum,
Magnesium Bisglycinate, B Vitamin Complex (See Table), Vitamin D3 (as Cholecalceferol),
Iron (as Ferrous Fumerate), Vitamin C (as Ascorbic Acid), Sweetener (from Natural Sources): Steviol Glycosides,
Emulsifier: Sunflower Lecithin, Zinc Gluconate.

The cocoa version simply has added cocoa powder.

The whey versions are pretty much the same, but with whey isolate instead of pea and hemp protein.

It was a discovery box of plant protein sachets I tried though – 7 single serving sachets of vanilla and chocolate plant based protein all packaed in recylable, biodegradable or compostable packaging.

I don’t often actually have ‘shakes’, to be honest – I prefer to eat my protein powder – it’s more filling for a personal as small as me who has the calorie needs of a mouse.

But I do when reviewing shakes – with water, in a blender, no added anything, so it’s a fair trial.

Whey shakes tend to turn out great, but vegan ones are a real mixed back in my experience, with some absolutely inedibly gross, and some moorishly delicious.

These definitely fared on the latter end of the spectrum, and came out really well in a protein pancake, and protein porridge I made as a lazy ‘missed supper’ evening sustencance after getting home too late for a big meal after driving back from visiting my Dad during the kids’ half term holiday.

What about cost?

At £36.97 for a 700g bag they’re definitely on the more expensive end when it comes to protein shakes but you do tend to get what you pay for. That’s why teh discovery box is a great option first – 7 sachets for £12.97 you can try them without committing so much.
