Protein shaker cups used to be something you received free from your supplement company as a giveaway product, but did any of us ever think they would become such an important feature of our gym bags? The recent innovation of sports shaker cups have seen the introduction of blender balls and under carriage compartments to hold supplements separate from the shaker cup itself.
This was all well and good but one of the main issues with some, if not all of the compartment based storage shakers was that they never gave you the ability to measure your supplements back into your cup. Core 150 is the newest shaker on the market and is a very innovative product indeed with the ability to hold in excess of 150 grams of sports nutrition within three removable centre compartments.
The shaker also has many additional unique promotional features that allow for brands to promote there product from embossing the internal lids of the inner compartments, straight through to its patent protected ability of promoting multiple powders from an optional disposable design.
The sports shaker has taken everything into account by offering an exact measurement of 50g of any chosen supplement which is ideal for professional athletes who are measurement conscious. The Core 150 shaker bottle holds one litre of water for optimal mixing and hydration which is yet another massive selling feature of this product.
With all of this being available in one cup you would think that it would have to be much bigger than your standard shaker cup, but in actual fact it is not. Core 150 has a flat spine at the rear of the cup which completely reduces the width allowing for an extremely comfortable grip without reducing the cups volume holding capability. This is one area of the design that is impressive and further demonstrates a high level of attention to detail with user in mind at all times.
When you put the convenience of having all your supplements to hand as and when you need them together with one litre of water held within one device its easy to see why this particular shaker cup is not only a gym must have but will become a permanent feature of your gym bag, locker or work place.

I don’t know about you but when I get serious about my dietary goals or start my supplements I measure everything. But wouldn’t it be great if you could carry your daily protein dose with you in one cup, already measured and ready exactly when you need it? The Core 150 protein shaker cup allows you to do just that. Now, you can kiss goodbye to hauling containers around in your gym bag or using storage areas with no exact measurement attached to the underside of your shaker cup. The original storage shakers where OK when first released but anyone who is serious about their nutrition will know that accurate measurement is critical to any diet or safe supplement consumption. With the Core 150 you have your protein with you ready to shake with accurate measurement the moment you need it with no mess and zero fuss.
If you’re currently transporting your protein powder separately, or within other so called multi compartment shakers then you’re probably making life very difficult for yourself. Not only do you need to make a finger in the air judgement call when pouring your powder back into your shaker, but you’ll also need to measure your powder on the fly risking your daily dietary balance while risking over consuming your supplements that can have health implications as well as having an impact on your wallet! With shakers that have no exact measuring capability you’ll also need to ensure you have a clean scoop with you defeating the convenience factor entirely – the germs or tummy bug you could get from using an un-sterilised scoop will stay in your memory for a very long time! With the Core 150, you simply measure out your daily protein intake directly from your tub then insert into one of three individual 50g compartments and you’re ready to go, no scoops, no risk of second guessing measuring, and no hygiene issue. The Core 150 cup is also 100% leak-proof so you don’t need to worry about spills or your gym kit getting damp.
You can store 1 litre of water inside the Core 150 when the compartments are removed and this makes for a smoother shake experience and is also perfect for mass gain powders that require more water to get the right consistency. Mixing is a breeze thanks to the innovative design of the cup and you’ll always have enough supplements on hand to get you through the day no matter how hard you train, from novice to professional. The compartments of the Core 150 are completely removable allowing for easy cleaning and re-filling of your supplements.
Core 150 also allows you to be totally flexible with your protein intake during the day. If you’re using a number of different powders for different results, you can choose exactly which ones to take with you for consumption as and when you need it. Those following a Pre/During /Post Workout regime will find this particularly convenient.
Size matters when it comes to choosing the right shaker cup and because Core 150 cancels out the need for additional protein powder containers, scoops and tubs, you get a lot more room in your bag. Core 150 is dishwasher friendly so that you can have it hygienically ready for its next use. There is no other shaker cup on the market can compete with the Core 150 on functionality, water volume delivery, quantity of powder storage or convenience all within one very handy and trendy cup.

- NUMBER OF SERVINGS PER CONTAINER. Pay attention to this number because all is not as it seems. Some brands cut costs with cheap “filler” ingredients. So, while you may think you are getting 2.5, or 10lbs of something. You’re getting significantly fewer servings that you would with a more reputable product. Better yet, figure out how much TOTAL PROTEIN you’re getting by multiplying the grams of protein per serving by the number of servings per container. Doesnt sound like much to do to figure out if you are being ripped off or not now does it, but I bet you’ve never done it?. Let me give you a little example 24 grams of protein/serving x 80 servings/container = 1,920 grams of protein/container. Like the pure protein percentage equation, this formula works best for straight protein powders.
- AMOUNT OF PROTEIN PER SERVING. The number of grams of protein per serving is probably the most important aspect of protein powders. Seems obvious, but many people overlook and often ignore this step assuming that all proteins are the same or that the most expensive powders contain more protein. Don’t make this mistake. Check the Nutrition Facts panel to make sure you’re not paying over the odds for your protein powder. And don’t bus suckered by just fancy marketing either.
- ORDER OF INGREDIENTS . By law, ingredients in a food or supplement product should be listed from most to least abundant, or in technical speak descending order of predominance. The importance of this becomes clear once you start shopping around. If, for example, two products are similarly priced, but one contains a greater amount of a less expensive protein (you know this since the cheaper protein is listed in the ingredients) you also know the product is a lesser value. Also, don’t get fooled by hyped up objectives that some companies use to describe common ingredients (a law has been passed making this illegal) but I think it may be some time until we see it fully in force. They will use words like “sodium chloride” which is just salt, or my favourite proteinaceous avian nucieus extract which is in fact just “EGG YOLKS” All quality whey protein concnetrates are ultrafiltered and contain microfractions like apha lactalbumin, beta lacto-globulin, lactoferrin, and glycomacropeptides.
- MANFACTURED BY OR FOR BIG IMPORTANCE contrary to what so called brands would like you to think about them most companies in the protein industry do not develop, manufacture or even distribute any of their own products. I’ve worked in the industry and seen it first hand so I know. They either put their labels on common formulas created by an external factory. This typically adds considerable costs, which are ultimately passed along to you the consumer. Phrases like Manufactured for, distributed by, or packed for let you know that the so-called BIG PLAYER is not as big as you think and is riding on his/her marketing coat-tail of the disconcerting consumer. True manufacturers have made the investment in the processing required to consistently offer the best products. So choose “Manufactured by” products over “Manufactured for” wherever possible, because this way you know you are getting what you are paying for “QUALITY”.
Choose a quality shaker cup for protein shakes to deliver your sports supplements at all times such as the new Core 150 shaker cup. Complete with 3 x 50 gram compartments and one serving for inside your cup allowing for 200 grams of your nutrition, when you need it on demand.
