Below are the most commonly asked questions about 180 which will help you get the best results out of our supplement. Please contact us if you have any further questions or queries about 180.
What’s The best way to take 180?
Our favourite method is to make a smoothie, as it won’t dissolve like regular protein powders, due to the fact it’s real raw protein food at it’s finest. We recommend taking it with milk, soy milk, natural yoghurt etc, or simply shake/stir or drink! Or you can sprinkle it on salads, make muffins, as it’s a raw product it’s very diverse!

Is there a best time to take it?
We recommend taking it any time daily by replacing a less nutritional meal or snack, especially flour or sugar based foods, giving you a high protein meal replacement. Over time you’ll feel a substantial difference by doing this.
And for maximum benefits from a workout?
We recommend taking a 1/2 to full serving an hour before exercise and a full serving within 1/2 hour after workout. If you are doing intensive exercise, we recommend taking 180 protein with some fruit, like a banana or berries.
Will I get increased energy?
You bet!! As it is sourced organically, and home grown here in Australia (home grown is VERY IMPORTANT, as any food that’s imported is subject to low standards of production, which can diminish the nutritional content). This will contain maximum nutritional value, and there are no bulking agents, preservatives or artificial sweeteners found in many protein powders, which can be energy diminishing. It is also very fibrous, which improves your digestive system, helps eliminate more toxicity and increases your metabolism. All of these things will raise your overall energy and well being. How many protein supplements do you know that can do that?
Will it help me build muscle?
Absolutely!! 180 is a high protein food source designed to assist muscle growth and to aid fast recovery after exercise. The protein is derived from totally natural ingredients (also packed full of micro nutrients & antioxidants) and premium grade whey protein isolate, for lean and firm muscle development. If taken on a regular basis, you will notice improved stamina and energy during training, especially resistance training. Your recovery is only as good as the food you eat. Learn more here.
Will it help me lose weight (body fat)?
Yes. If you want to lose body fat and sustain/improve good health, we suggest exercising a minimum of 3 times a week and eating 4-6 small meals a day, and supplement 1-3 of those meals with a serving of 180 made into a protein shake. If you have cereal or toast for breakfast, sandwiches for lunch etc, or any processed carbohydrate simply, replace these with the serving of 180 protein shake, giving you a high protein meal replacement. You’ll be amazed at the difference in no time at all!! Learn more here.
So can 180 be used as a meal replacement?
Yes. Most people in western society are starving themselves in an abundance of food. So many foods today are highly processed, there is hardly any nutritional value left for the body. So you are basically eating fillers (feed the appetite, but not the body). If your diet consists of breads, cereals, canned food, microwave meals etc, you’ll be doing your body a great service by replacing some meals with 180 protein supplement. If you eat 5-6 small meals a day, replace 1-3 meals with 180, and if you eat 3-4 meals a day, replace 1-2 meals with 180. Learn more here.
180 is very high in fibre – what are the benefits of that?
Dietary fibre is mainly needed to keep the digestive system healthy. It also contributes to other processes, such as stabilizing glucose and cholesterol levels.
Fibre is essential to overall health and the continual elimination of waste, which aids in the optimal function of the liver – blood from the digestive system must first filter through the liver before it travels anywhere else in the body.
The principal roles of the liver include removing toxins from the body, processing food nutrients and helping to regulate body metabolism.
Also, fibre helps stabilize blood sugar levels. Healthy blood sugar levels are essential for sustained energy, reducing the risk of many modern day illnesses and effective fat loss when needed, as maintaining a healthy blood sugar profile can often be the missing link to a successful fat loss program.
In a nutshell – fibre stabilizes blood sugar levels, improves your metabolism and the role of the liver – which then regulates your metabolism, and processes nutrients better. This helps lose body fat and reduces the risk and the onset of many modern day illnesses and diseases. Our protein supplement will give you 35% RDI of fibre in one serve. Learn more here.
I have a life threatening disease i.e cancer – can I use 180?

I’m a diabetic – can I use 180?
Yes. 180 natural protein is low GI (Glycemic Index), giving you a steady release of energy without spiking your blood sugar levels, but again, please consult your medical professional first. Learn more here.
Can I use this product when pregnant?
The answer is yes. The extra protein, essential fatty acids, fibre and minerals will be of benefit to you whilst pregnant. You should use it as an addition to your exsisting daily diet for snacks in between your meals.
