10 Reasons Why Nutribuddy Is Good For You

Each Nutribuddy product page features a transparent overview of its nutritional content and dietary features.

But you don’t need to click into each to read up individually… keep going below for over overview on what sets Nutribuddy products apart from the competition – we think you’ll be impressed! 

1. Nutribuddy products are made with healthy ingredients with numerous health benefits

Our products contain a variety of ingredients to ensure that their nutritional balance is whole and well varied.

We’ve done our research and worked with a leading UK nutritionist to include only the best and most beneficial of ingredients.

As a result, there’s some ingredients you’ll find in several Nutribuddy products – they’re our favourites!

These include, but aren’t limited, to:

Gluten-free oats, which are notable for their almost unique antioxidants called avenanthramides.

Avenanthramides lower blood pressure and have anti-inflammatory properties, but are difficult to obtain in a usual gluten-free diet, because truly gluten-free oats are expensive and can be hard to find!

Flaxseeds, often a vegetarian or vegan’s richest dietary source of Omega-3 Fatty Acids.

The content of the ALA (Alpha-Linolenic Acid) in particular is extremely nutritious and has been clinically proven to help promote a range of health benefits – including lowering the risk of heart attack, lowering the risk of stroke and preventing cholesterol deposits in the heart.

Chia seeds, an ancient Aztec food that has bloomed in popularity in the Western World through recent years.

Chia seeds contain approximately 14% protein, which is high for a plant; and mixed naturally with amino acids, the body is able to put that protein to optimised use

 Decent protein sources in a diet are linked with promoting satiety (feeling full) for longer and to reduce the mental willing for snacks or overeating.

Mixing nourishing ingredients with new flavours as part of a comprehensive nutritional profile really sets apart Nutribuddy’s products from others – you simply won’t find a more well-rounded beneficial balance out there!

2. Nutribuddy products are only made with natural ingredients – there’s nothing artificial in them

Many nutritional products contain artificial ingredients as a way of topping up their health content without having to add inexpensive or varied ingredients.

Whilst this is an easy way to give a nutritional profile a boost and to ensure you’re including all you’d like, the body absorbs synthetic nutrients in a different (and less healthy) way to the natural ones consumed through whole foods – because there are some compounds that just can’t be replicated.

The evidence is clear: natural, organic nutrients are optimal for the body, so they’re all you’ll find in Nutribuddy products. 

3. Nutribuddy products are quick and convenient

Taking the time out of your day to plan, prepare and cook a full meal with a complete nutritional profile to meet your dietary goals is a great objective – but in reality, most of us just don’t have the time (or even when we think we do, something else pops up and distracts us!).

Nutribuddy products are non-perishable and can be mixed and created in seconds. Just add your chosen milk or milk substitute, and shake.

Healthy meal? Done. Wherever, whenever, whyever you’re not able to cook.

4. Nutribuddy products can help with weight loss

Not everyone choosing to consume Nutribuddy shakes is looking to lose weight, but the meal replacement shakes on offer can definitely help those intending on achieving that goal. 

Shake Complete is a full meal replacement shake that offers all of the nutrients you’d find in a perfectly-balanced solid-food meal, but without the calorie content – ideal for those looking to lessen their intake and combine with an exercise routine to achieve sustainable weight loss over time.

One consistent theme we heard a lot from those looking to lose weight is that they simply can’t resist sweet or salty snacks while attempting to diet.

HotSlim is a fantastic drink to curb sweet cravings whilst instead giving your body a dose of natural goodness with macro- and micro-nutrients.

There’s no way you’ll opt for an unhealthy snack after!

5. Nutribuddy products are nutritious and filling

If you’re not used to consuming liquid only for a meal (and we’re not talking your typical ‘liquid lunch’!), consuming meal replacement shakes may not satiate your appetite in the way you’d like – leaving you more likely to eat more later on, defeating the object of opting for a healthy choice anyway!

Nutribuddy avoids this with the inclusion of gluten-free oats.

Oats are a hefty source of Beta-Glucan, a soluble fibre that has been clinically proven to increase the ‘full’ feeling; so you won’t feel the need to reach for other food afterward.

6. Nutribuddy products are free from any major allergens

There are fourteen allergens considered ‘common’, and companies must clearly label and state where their products include these so they can’t be inadvertently consumed by anyone who may experience an adverse reaction to them.

These ingredients are celery, cereals, crustaceans, eggs, fish, lupin, milk, molluscs, mustard, tree nuts, peanuts, sesame seeds, soybeans and sulphites.

All can cause nasty side effects in those who have an allergy to them, but also discomfort to those with intolerances or just ‘soft spots’ for them.

Nutribuddy products contain no allergens whatsoever, so unless you have a rare allergy to one of the other ingredients in the meal replacement shakes, you’re guaranteed smooth and easy digestion.

7. Nutribuddy products are vegan

According to The Vegan Society, interest in veganism has risen sevenfold in the last five years.

Even people who aren’t following a vegan diet often show interest in consuming vegan products where they find it convenient to, so Nutribuddy caters for those people as well as those committing to the diet full-time.

All of our products are 100% vegan, containing no animal products or byproducts. 

Following a vegan diet has been proven to help expedite healthy weight loss, lower the risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes and lower the risk of developing dangerously high blood pressure.

8. Nutribuddy products get all their nutrients from whole-foods – we refuse to use vitamin blends

Whole-foods are natural, organically-grown foods that require no processing or treatment to consume.

The nutrients within them, therefore, are presented exactly as nature intended and are able to be absorbed by the body in the most efficient way possible. 

The nutrient profile of whole-foods is often copied by those producing synthetic, man-made vitamin blends, but it can never be replicated entirely.

The ingredients list of Nutribuddy products only include whole-foods, so there’s no compromise on quality.

You can read more on why whole-foods are far superior to artificial vitamin blends here.

9. Nutribuddy products are formulated with the help of a qualified nutritionist

Nutribuddy works with one of the UK’s leading nutritionists, so there’s no shortcuts or workarounds for us in producing brilliant and nourishing shakes.

Kelly Rose BSc (hons), PGCE, RNutr, is an educational nutritionist who also co-developed plant-based weight loss programme PassionateNutrition.

She analyses and advises on every single aspect of Nutribuddy products through their development and always strives for the utmost quality in nutritional profiling.

10. Nutribuddy products are side-effect free

Unlike some meal replacement shake products available, Nutribuddy have taken the steps during the formulation and creation process to ensure there’s no unintended side effects for the consumer. 

This includes ensuring products are completely dairy-free (so there’s no lactose lurking in ingredients you may not know the names of), contain no laxatives (which all too often result in dehydration and just the loss of water weight rather than real weight – completely unsustainable!) and are all-natural.

This gives the consumer not just a delicious meal replacement product to enjoy, but also the guarantee of an easy-to-digest and safe-to-consume vitamin and mineral dose.
