Our Story, our aim, our passion... to combine the benefits of protein with a select range of supplements to provide the whey & the means, to make the most of every day! The ultimate daily drink made... Specially For You.
The idea for Specially For You came about one cold autumn day in Dublin, with a question to my teenage kids and their friends after a hockey match, as they all sat in the car with their protein drinks, I randomly asked; do you know what you’re drinking? As manufacturers of Irish milk based products, I was surprised to see how little the girls really knew about protein, where it came from and whether it addressed the physiological needs of active women. Further discussions with other women confirmed this sense of uncertainty, as well as a general nervousness towards protein supplements, mainly due to an innate fear of building excessive muscle, its masculine profile, and lack of traceability.
The more I thought about it and the more we chatted about it with the girls and the boys in the family the more intrigued I became! As curiosity well and truly got the better of me, with the help of our friends in Epicom Food (trusted experts in the manufacture of proteins) we set about researching the availability and viability of products for women and products devoted to the particular needs of women's bodies. We then met with women across the country to assess the interest in the creation of a clean, healthy (and of course great tasting) nutritional drink for active, life-loving women. The want was unanimous and made for a very exciting few months collaborating with the research and development team in Epicom.
So from a chat after a hockey match, many, many chats with a variety of focus groups, specialists and experts in dairy, nutrition and food science, fantastic friendships have been formed, working as a collaborative team, an extended family, all with one goal in sight; to create a trusted, clean, traceable lifestyle supplement for all women, with only the very best of ingredients, at all times... and so, Specially For You was born!
Our aim is to provide all active women, whether you go for a walk or run a marathon, with a nutritional product that focuses on women’s physiology, health & beauty needs. More and more women are exercising to stay fit & healthy and to keep themselves looking & feeling well. Many women and young girls are pushing themselves harder than ever before. A dramatic increase in female gym membership and performance sports has given rise to several medical conditions such as Female Athlete Triad Syndrome caused by disordered eating, leading to insufficient energy levels, Amenorrhea and Osteoporosis. A proper diet is essential to maintain adequate energy levels. Specially For You is quick, convenient and easy to take, just stir 30g of Specially For You into 200ml of water or milk to instantly enjoy a healthy, great tasting, nutritious drink. The daily sachets make it perfect for the home, workplace or gym - ideal for the busy woman with three great tasting flavours to choose from.
What We Added & Why...
Protein - 23g of protein per serving from pure whey concentrate per 30g serving for muscle recovery & maintenance. Protein contributes to the maintenance of normal bones and muscle mass.
Calcium - is essential for the health of our bones and teeth, it also affects our muscles, hormones, nerve function, and ability to form blood clots.
Vitamin D - is vital for good health, growth and strong bones. It ensures calcium absorption and plays a very important role in the prevention of Osteoporosis. Approximately 1 in 2 people over the age of 50 will develop a fracture due to Osteoporosis! Protein, Calcium, Vitamin D & load-bearing exercise is a great way to help prevent loss of bone mass & Osteoporosis. Iron - active women often feel tired & fatigued due to low iron. Iron is important in making red blood cells, which carry oxygen around the body. Iron deficiency anaemia is the world’s most common nutritional deficiency disease and is very prevalent in women particularly when pregnant, during menstruation or if suffering from anaemia .
Folic Acid - has many uses in the body, particularly for women of childbearing age. Folate contributes to normal blood formation, amino acid synthesis, function of the immune system, along with the reduction of tiredness and fatigue and maternal tissue growth during pregnancy.
Collagen - is the most abundant form of protein in our bodies. It adds to skin strength and elasticity and is known to reduce cellulite, stretch marks and helps to keep hair healthy, now often included in many beauty and skin care products. Collagen is also known as the glue that keeps the body together. Collagen plays an important role in the building and support of joints.
Co Enzyme Q10 - Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a substance similar to a vitamin. It is found in every cell of the body. Your body makes CoQ10, and your cells use it to produce energy your body needs for cell growth and maintenance. It also functions as an antioxidant, which protects the body from damage caused by harmful molecules.
