Why our beef jerky is the perfect workout recovery snack!


As most of us well know, your body needs just the right amount of protein for muscle recovery after a workout.

There are protein shakes, bars and balls, sure.  But they’re not always satisfying and can be full of sugar, artificial colours and flavours and are not always that affordable.  

It can be hard to find healthy and wholesome protein-rich snacks that you can just throw in your gym bag.

This is where JEEERKS beef jerky comes in…

Beef Jerky – Nature’s Protein Bar

So, how do you get your post-workout protein, the natural way?  With beef jerky of course!

Not only is beef jerky more fulfilling than a protein powder, it has some unexpected benefits that make it the perfect post-workout snack – Nature’s Protein Bar.

The perfect amount of protein

According to sports dieticians Michelle Rockwell and Susan Kundrat, growing athletes need 0.6 to 0.9 grams of protein per day for each pound of muscle mass.

This puts an ideal post-workout snack at around 10-20 grams of protein. 

And since JEEERK’s 50-gram bags of beef jerky have just over 20 grams of protein, our beef jerky fits the bill for your perfect post-workout protein snack!

Besides having the right amount of protein, our beef jerky is low in fat, carbs and is gluten free too.

Extra Nutrients

Did you know that beef jerky also has a healthy amount of zinc, iron and B vitamins?

According to experts, it won’t raise your insulin levels either, meaning it won't activate a hormone that signals your body to store fat.

And that’s not all!  The protein in beef jerky aids muscle repair and provides an adequate number of electrolytes to replace those lost through sweat that reduces soreness and speeds recovery.

All these perks packed into an on-the-go snack makes it the perfect option for your post-workout recovery. 

Grab and go!

The dehydration process used to make beef jerky preserves its protein content and extends its shelf life. This makes JEEERKS beef jerky super easy to throw into your gym bag - just as you may have already been doing with your protein powder.

As you can see, JEEERKS beef jerky helps solve the tricky balance of how to get enough protein throughout the day when you live a hectic, on-the-go lifestyle, because it’s extremely affordable, portable, compact and high quality.

What more could you want for your busy, active and healthy lifestyle?

Gym JEEERKS, let’s face it: Your protein powder isn’t cutting it anymore!

So, throw some JEEERKS beef jerky into your gym bag and get your high-quality source of protein after your next workout for optimal muscle recovery.
