Packing a Punch of Protein Albeit With Taste

Fx Chocolate®, a Designs for Health brand that provides functional amounts of high-quality supplements in handcrafted chocolate, has officially announced an expansion of its protein bar portfolio. According to certain reports, the company’s portfolio now includes iterations, such as Bold Beauty Collagen™, Bone Broth Chocolate Crunch, Cocommune™, Peanut Butter Joint Power™, and Plant-Powered Magnesium™, all of them available on Amazon. Talk about each protein bar variant on a slightly deeper level, though, we begin from Bold Beauty Collagen™. This one banks upon an element named Lustriva to deliver on its promised value proposition. You see, going by several clinical studies, Lustriva bears the potential to promote hair shine, resilience, and strength, as well as healthy skin and nail texture. Not just loaded with health benefits, but the Bold Beauty Collagen protein bar also offers a great sense of taste thanks to its birthday-cake flavored bar, as well as its oat milk white chocolate coating and a crispy protein filling. More on the same would reveal how it dispatches 7 g of plant protein and pea protein crisps, and 7 g of collagen peptides. Next up, we have the Bone Broth Chocolate Crunch bar, which effectively combines a chocolatey oat milk coating with a crunchy chocolate protein filling. Furthermore, it features a paleo-friendly profile with an impressive 13 g of protein per serving, designed to support joint, skin, and gut function. To go alongside that, the protein blend uniquely combines grassfed hydrolyzed bone broth protein (as HydroBEEF) and pea protein crisps to create a comprehensive and complimentary amino acid profile. Markedly enough, there is also Taurine present in the mix to promote metabolic health.

“We’re thrilled to introduce five new product formulations within our supplement bar lineup, each developed through rigorous, science-backed research,” said Dr. David M. Brady, Chief Medical Officer at Designs for Health, the creators of Fx Chocolate®. “These bars pack functional ingredients in a convenient, on-the-go format to help empower individuals to take control of their health journeys with products they can trust in today’s busy world.”

Moving on to the Cocommune protein bar, it is a great-tasting bar formulated with a chocolatey coating and a creamy coconut filling. On top of that, Cocommune offers an impressive 8 grams of fiber per bar including prebiotic fiber from larch arabinogalactan, a unique type of carbohydrate that serves as a food source to the gut flora. This makes for a big detail, considering fiber intake has long been proven to promote gut, immune, heart health, and healthy blood sugar metabolism. Then, there is a Peanut Butter Joint Power protein bar, which leverages glucosamine and chondroitin to improve cartilage health, and therefore, support joint mobility in consumers. In case you weren’t aware, both glucosamine and chondroitin can be found naturally in our bodies, along with some foods or supplements that specifically help in keep joints comfortable and flexible. Anyway, the bar in question features a 12 grams of protein sourced from whey protein isolates, 4 g of fiber, a notable 1 g of glucosamine, and 500 mg of chondroitin.

Finally, our last piece of highlight comes from Plant-Powered Magnesium™ protein bar. Plant-Powered Magnesium is basically a delicious white chocolate caramel flavored vegan functional supplement bar with a protein filling. It is aided by a 150 g of highly absorbable mineral magnesium glycinate and 20 g of plant protein from pea and rice proteins and cashew butter. Revealing the former’s importance is a fact that magnesium glycinate is a hardworking mineral that bears responsibility for over 300 functions in the body, ranging from maintaining proper heart and blood vessel function to muscle and mental relaxation, mood support, bone health, and more.

Each bar variant is available in exchange of $39.48 for 12 pieces.
