Will these products make me strong and muscular?
Getting strong and muscular is the result of hard and consistent training with the focus on progression over a very long period of time. Nutrition can aid you in recovery and performance to ensure the progression; but without the progression in the gym itself, there will be no gains.
What is whey?
Whey is a dairy product (technically speaking it is the byproduct of cheese-making). Whey can be consumed mixed with water or milk or be used as an ingredient in recipes. Due to its high protein content it is a popular food for those who strength train on a regular basis.
Do I need whey?
It depends on your daily protein need. A good aim is to eat 1.6 – 1.8 grams of protein per kg bodyweight on a daily basis. The recommendation for individuals aiming for weight-loss whilst maintaining muscle-mass is 2 g per kg bodyweight. Whey is an excellent source of protein and should be viewed as a food or ingredient rather than as a supplement. I drink whey on a daily basis mixed with milk, or in a smoothie together with other ingredients. An example of such a smoothie is the following: 5 dl of milk, 2 scoops of whey, 1 scoop of collagen, 2 tablespoons of frozen blueberries and a splash of cream. There are plenty of whey smoothie recipes you can try out.
Are whey and collagen only for those who train in the gym?
No, regardless of your training routine, you can optimise your health by consuming whey and collagen.
I heard that the supplement industry is not particularly clean or glorious, is this true?
Yes, a few years ago, there was a big scandal regarding popular American whey products. Many of them contained heavy metals. This is why we have taken additional tests for heavy metals.
What does the name mean?
Jotunheim is the realm of the giants in Norse mythology and the giants know a thing or two about getting massive. The Thor symbol is meant to inspire you to be a force of nature, and the overcoming of yourself, and the overcoming of hardship. The names and designs of coming products will be derived from mythology and folklore; from epic tales that push you to set the pace high!
