Why should I take protein?
If you leave an active lifestyle, during your workout or activity you are actually tearing your muscles and protein is what you need to repair them. By refueling yourself with a good protein post workout, you are making your body more efficient, increasing your fat burn and speeding up your metabolism. Result: looking more toned and feeling ready to train again.
What does protein do to me?
Protein is one of the building blocks that makes you your (cool) self! It basically makes up your hair, nail, bones and muscles - pretty important, right? Your body needs an adequate amount of protein to stay healthy, build muscle and carry oxygen around in your blood.
Protein is also an essential refuel after a workout or activity.
How does protein help me with my diet?
Fact: protein keeps you fuller for longer! A high protein intake is linked to many dietary benefits. These include appetite, weight, body composition, aging and overall health.
It’s HERMOSA a meal replacement?
HERMOSA is not a meal replacement, it's simply a (cool AF) refuel. It’s clean, high quality ingredients will repair your torn muscles quicker so that you are ready to train/surf/rollerskate (whatever your bag!) all over again.
Will HERMOSA help me bulk up?
HERMOSA is the perfect refuel that will promote a faster recovery after your workout, meaning you’ll be ready to go again quicker. More training = more results, right?!
Refuelling with HERMOSA also helps repair torn muscle tissue and build lean muscle. If your objective is to bulk up, you will need further changes in your nutrition. Please follow the advice of a qualified nutritionist.
I am worried HERMOSA will make me bulky - will I look like Arnie Schwarzenegger?
Short answer - no! HERMOSA makes your post workout recovery more efficient. It increases your metabolism and will enable you to burn fat instead of your lean muscle.
HERMOSA is a great way for you to start improving your diet, but as a supplement, it certainly won’t bulk you up. Please seek the advice of a qualified nutritionist if you are looking to change your body composition.
Can I have HERMOSA during pregnancy?
We get asked this a lot - good news, the answer is YES! Under normal circumstances, pregnant women can continue to use HERMOSA as our product doesn’t contain any hormones or additives (phew!) However, every person and every pregnancy is unique so we always advise our clients to show their GP our products’ nutritional information and seek their medical opinion.
Can my child have HERMOSA?
More good news, YES! HERMOSA is a refined protein source made from naturally sourced ingredients (milk, pea and hemp). As children grow they require protein for growth - whey/pea protein is an amazing source of protein.
Whey protein and milk proteins are already found in countless products consumed by children so adding another is totally fine.
Our serving recommendation is to give your children a half portion of HERMOSA (1 scoop from a jar, ½ scoop from the pouch or ½ sachet.) This is a safe and effective way to introduce a healthy amount of high quality protein into a child’s diet.
Can I try a sample before I buy?
We don’t send out samples but we do sell our gorgeous individual servings in a box of 10 which is a great intro to your HERMOSA journey. We are pretty confident that you’ll love it anyway!
What is the recommended dose of HERMOSA a day?
30g (1 scoop from pouches, 2 scoops from jars, 1 full sachet). If you are looking into increasing your overall protein intake as part of a macro count, you can have 60g.
Oh and always serve in a HERMOSA tumbler ;)

What’s the difference between the Whey and Vegan HERMOSA?
Our whey protein is made from whey protein concentrate - AKA Milk! whereas our vegan HERMOSA is made from a blend of pea protein and white hemp. As our whey is made from an animal product, it is not suitable for vegans. The other ingredients we use in both products are all plant based.
