Are Shaker Bottles Necessary?
Protein powders, pre-workout, and other pre-workout supplement shakes can be dense. Shaker bottles help break up unnecessary clumps and provide a smoother texture. The bottles also reduce the corners and nooks that can trap unmixed powder.
How do I choose a protein shaker?
Protein shaker bottles should be durable materials with BPA and phthalate-free plastic or glass. Stainless steel options are also great for keeping your drink cold. Look for rounded edges to ensure smooth textures and a durable whisk or mixing grate.
The biggest thing to look for is the right size. If you prefer a drink throughout a workout, you’ll need something bigger. If you’re always on the go, a smaller size could be more convenient to carry. Once you’ve chosen the right bottle, you can get back to what matters most — your health.
