FITSHE prebiotic powder is based on galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS), these increase the production of bifidobacteria in your gut and relieve symptoms related to IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). GOS has been produced for decades and is widely regarded as an important component of baby milk formulas. The GOS contained in our prebiotic powder is the most researched GOS in the world and therefore extremely safe.
Our gut bacteria are happy with prebiotics. Why? Prebiotics follow our digestive system untouched until they meet our gut bacteria. The latter, in turn, make good use of them: prebiotics are a source of nutrition for the good bacteria in our gut. They stimulate the growth and activity of these bacteria. In other words, there are more of these good bacteria and they can do their job better. Lactobacilli and bifidobacteria are examples of good bacteria. When these good bacteria break down the fibers, substances are released. We call these short-chain fatty acids. These substances have all kinds of effects; for example, they improve the functioning of the intestine. But they also contribute to a better functioning of the immune system. Enough reason to find out in which products you can find prebiotic fibers.

Whey protein concentrate from FITSHE is extracted from milk and contains lactose. Whey protein ensures a growth in muscle mass and provides support in the recovery of your muscles after a workout. It is both a booster and a recoverer!
Our plant-based protein powders are organic and made from pea protein with pumpkin protein and hemp protein. Vegan protein is certainly not inferior to its whey protein counterpart. Whatever your preference, with vegan protein from FITSHE you also work on building muscle mass and ensure smooth muscle recovery after your workout.
Our whey protein products contain the daily recommended amount of magnesium. This mineral is extremely good for your body: it contributes, among other things, to the proper functioning of your muscles and that’s a good thing if you like to exercise.
These are the building blocks of proteins. Amino acids exist as essential and non-essential amino acids. The latter are produced by the body, the essential ones can be obtained from food. Like proteins themselves, amino acids ensure the proper formation of muscle and bone tissue. Amino acids are especially important if you exercise intensively.
