Wish your workout could last all day? The results can...
be-BUFF is no ordinary protein complex - it can help you achieve better fitness results and more! This delicious protein mix was specifically designed for women to fuel lean body mass, enhance your metabolism, curb your appetite and provide beauty from within!*

Protein: sufficient protein intake is essential to any women seeking a slim, toned physique. Consuming protein increases your feeling of fullness, so you won't be as hungry.* Along with exercise, protein is a quality fuel for lean body mass.* When you build lean muscle, your metabolism increases, and you will burn more calories.

Fiber: be-BUFF features a superior form of fiber, called Sunfiber®. It's clinically proven to improve regularity, improve growth of beneficial bacteria and normalize bacterial flora.* Fiber, like protein, helps you to feel fuller, longer.* Adult women should consume 25 to 35 grams of fiber each day to maintain good health and normal bowel function.

Enzymes: support a healthy digestive system and help your body to better use the nutrients you take in each day. Enzymes also help to reduce bloating and gas.*

Beauty Blend: features a unique proprietary blend of ingredients that support beautiful, health hair and nails and hydrate skin.*

Calcium: in addition to protein and fiber, be-BUFF provides 500 mg of bone building calcium in each serving - that's about half of what you need each day. After all, if you're going to have strong muscles, you'll want strong bones to support them.

Finally, a protein complex made for women. Simply add be-BUFF to water or your favorite beverage for a healthy mid-day treat to help curb your appetite.* This protein is so well designed you can use if before or after your fitness regimen.

Health Notes

Everyday Vitamins for Women

Everyday Vitamins for Women
What to combine with good eating to meet your nutritional needs
Everyday Vitamins for Women: Main Image
It's a good idea for every woman to take a daily multivitamin

While certain nutritional needs can change, some nutrients remain particularly important throughout a woman's life. By eating well, women can get much of what they need, such as protein and fiber, but many can benefit from taking supplements to ensure they get enough of certain essential vitamins and minerals that the diet doesn't always provide in sufficient amounts, such as calcium, vitamin D, and zinc.

A happy family

For starters, it's a good idea for every woman to take a daily multivitamin to get a family of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C (200 to 1,000 mg per day) and the B-complex vitamins. The B vitamins that are part of this complex are thiamine (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), niacin or niacinamide (vitamin B3), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), pyridoxine (vitamin B6), biotin, folic acid, and cobalamin (vitamin B12). Most multivitamins will also contain beneficial zinc, vitamin A, and vitamin E for healthy skin and immune function, and to protect against a wide variety of diseases.

The strength is in the bones

A woman's bones need extra care to help preserve bone mass and avoid possible osteoporosis later in life. Body After Baby author and nutrition expert Jackie Keller says "Women need calcium at all stages of life, and we generally don't get enough in our diets through food sources." Look for a calcium supplement that, combined with diet and what you might get in a multivitamin, gives you around 1,000 mg per day, 1,200 if you're over 51. To further protect bones, doctors also recommend supplementing with 400 to 800 IU of vitamin D per day when taking calcium.

Fatty is good

Omega-3 fatty acids are considered essential for the body's health. For women, they may protect against a wide range of conditions, including osteoporosis, heart disease, and depression. Food sources include cold-water fish, walnuts, flaxseeds, and canola oil. Common supplement forms of omega-3s are fish oil capsules (1,000 to 4,000 mg per day) and ground flaxseed (1 tablespoon [15 ml] one or two times a day). You can easily grind your own flaxseeds in a small coffee bean grinder to guarantee freshness.

Freelance writer Terra Wellington makes sure she gets her omega-3s by adding ground organic flaxseed to her cereal every morning.

Comments about GNC WELLbeING? be-BUFF Protein & Fiber Complex Mix - Vanilla Bean:

Product taste delicious with anything you add to it or alone! I use it every morning for my shakes. Only thing that it would be best if GNC would make the containers larger instead of small bags that run out quickly. Maybe a hard cylinder container would be best? I enjoy the quality of the product.

**Also it states in the back that the powder was designed for woman. It be great if they can design one for men also**

    Comments about GNC WELLbeING? be-BUFF Protein & Fiber Complex Mix - Vanilla Bean:

    Well, I just received the 2 bags that i ordered in the mail today. So, i obviously worked out and drank it after. I filled my mixing bottle with 12 fl. oz. of cold water, put in a scoop of the powder (it comes with its own scoop) and popped it in the fridge to drink right after my workout. Since this is my first time using it, i cant say it is effective yet. However, i am EXTREMELY picky with flavors of protein shakes and the flavor of the Vanilla one is just right. It obviously has its little bit of chemical taste, but overall its excellent. It is very easy to swallow. One bad thing is that the bag is very narrow. However, i just poured the powder into a plastic container and it's all good! Let's see if it works!

        Comments about GNC WELLbeING? be-BUFF Protein & Fiber Complex Mix - Vanilla Bean:

        A while back, I had tried and liked the chocolate variety of the Be-Buff protein. It was really tastey, like chocolate milk. It had kind of a funny chemical taste to it, but it wasn't so bad. I went back to buy some more, and they were out of the chocolate. Okay, fine. So, I bought 2 of the vanilla because they were on sale. Oh, how I regret it. The vanilla tastes horrible. It tastes so much like chemical and nothing like a natural vanilla taste. I was adding cocoa powder, cinnamon, whatever, just to be able to choke it down. Nasty stuff. I only just got through the first package and now I have another one... I may just throw it out because it tastes that bad. Not to mention, I've learned a lot about food and nutrition since I first started taking protein. I'm now avoiding soy products and trying to go organic/natural as much as is practical. After I get rid of this stuff, I'm going to be switching to an all whey protein, organic brand with fewer chemicals and such.

        be-Buff makes me feel full, I add some cinnamon to enhance the flavor. Training for an event and trying to drop some pounds, keeps energy level up!
        The bag design makes it difficult to get all the powder from the bottom.

            I have bought this product for over 4 years, purchased 2 bags last week and the taste and smell was terrible. I cannot drink this now, what did you change or was this product just a bad batch. Would be nice to know because I am not going to buy it ever again.

                I have tried a number of protein powders and shakes, but so far this has been my favorite. I consider myself a petite woman, therefore I was trying to find a mix that would support lean muscle tone, however not contain a high number of calories. With be-BUFF, I not only get the protein I need after a workout, but also vitamins to support healthy hair, nails, and skin. Also, I am lactose intolerant, and although this product contains milk, it can can be mixed with water. I haven't experienced any stomach upsets thus far. (I tend to mix the vanilla bean powder with orange juice, it tastes like a creamsicle!)

                  Comments about GNC WELLbeING? be-BUFF Protein & Fiber Complex Mix - Vanilla Bean:

                  I've been using this product now for almost 2 years. I started with the chocolate which I think is now discontinued. I do a lot of cardio and toning exercises, working out almost every day. Usually, I take one scoop of protein about 30 minutes after my workout with non fat or soy milk. I NEVER get the feeling of being bloated yet i do feel satisfied enough to not want to eat right after. Usually, I DONT use it as a complete meal replacement since i use so little milk but i'm sure if you used heavy milk (2%) and a scoop and a half or so, it would be adequite. The vanilla flavor is amazing! It smells just like cake batter and tastes simliar without the super sugary taste.
