Protein and Meal Replacements Increasing in Demand

Between 2009 and 2014, protein has become one of consumer health’s most in-demand ingredients with a sales increase of 59.3%, according to Euromonitor. Additionally, meal replacements are the highest selling weight management supplement today! Both trends are forecasted to stay on the incline for the foreseeable future as people invest in fitness and grow increasingly aware of their health.

Recognizing this trend, Synergy WorldWide decided to meet two global consumer demands with SLMsmart Health Shake, a delicious meal replacement mix with 26 grams of protein in every serving. But what is it that’s making protein and meal replacements a household necessity?


The human body is stacked with protein. Proteins exist in the outer and inner membranes of every living cell and also make an appearance in:

  • Muscle tissue
  • Bones
  • Red blood cells and plasma
  • Hair and nails

The body needs protein to make enzymes, which do a number of jobs in the body, including digesting food and making new cells. Perhaps one of the most important jobs that proteins have are creating neurotransmitters, which are responsible for sending messages back and forth from nerve cells to other specialized cells, such as muscle cells.

As people are predicted to continue making fitness a priority, protein will increase in importance because it is essential in supporting muscle growth. While SLMsmart Health Shake was designed by in-house scientists to support weight management programs, many have turned to SLMsmart for its protein content and nutrients.


As people find their schedules more and more hectic, it can be tough to constantly stress over proper nutrition, especially when trying to control their weight. That’s why an increasing number of people are reaching for meal replacement shakes, which are nutrient-dense and can help fill the gaps created by an incomplete diet through an easy-to-mix shake. Add in the convenience factor of being able to stash a serving or two in your purse or car and you have the recipe for a quick, delicious alternative to skipping a meal or overindulging in a less healthy restaurant option.

Whether you’re looking for an easy weight management solution or a convenient way to fill nutritional voids, Health Shake can show you why meal replacements are skyrocketing in popularity. Incorporate this mix into your daily routine to satisfy your chocolate and vanilla cravings while staying on track to a healthier you. Whether you use SLMsmart for nutrition, weight management or fitness, it’s full of the healthy essentials your body craves with a taste you love.
