What is a Bedtime Protein Shake?

Bedtime Fuel from The Protein Works™ is a multi-protein formula designed to offer a slow and sustained release of nutrients. It is specifically designed to be taken before bed to aid muscular growth and repair. Bedtime Fuel has been enhanced with 5g of glutamine and 1.6g of HMB per serving for optimal recovery. In addition, it is also very low in fat and carbs to help avoid the build up of fat stores whilst you sleep and as your metabolism slows down.


What are the Benefits of Taking a Protein Shake Before Bed?

If you are looking for a protein shake to support your body's repair and recovery at night, without adding carbs and fat, then Bedtime Fuel is ideal for you. We recommend you consume a shake 30 minutes before bed to ensure the maximum benefits. We would also recommend combining Bedtime Fuel with ZMA® and our super multi-vitamin Elite Man™ to further support your body's recovery processes at night.


Do I Need Protein at Nightime?

Bedtime Fuel has been scientifically designed based on thousands of studies that show the time we spend sleeping can have a profound effect on your training. This is because it's during this time the muscles repair, growth compound levels increase and neurotransmitters are replenished. However most protein formulas are absorbed too quickly and will only provide the muscles with amino acids during the first few hours of sleep meaning your muscles can become starved during the latter stages. Bedtime Fuel doesn't do this and instead contains a tapered, slow release protein blend that drip feeds amino acids to the muscles throughout the 7-9 hours that you are sleeping. Ultimately this means whilst you sleep your muscles can repair and regrow as nature intended, instead of entering a state where your muscles are starved and sleep becomes counter-productive.


What's The Best Protein To Take Before Bed?

Bedtime Fuel is based on a unique timed-release formula of no less than four of our premium grade proteins, Milk Protein 85 (concentrate), Whey Protein 90 (isolate), Whey Protein 80 (concentrate) and Egg White Protein 80 (concentrate). It is this carefully constructed blend of proteins that is responsible for drip feeding the muscles all the way through the night. This impressive protein formulation has then been enhanced with proven recovery-enhancing amino acids in the form of glutamine and HMB. Glutamine has long been used in sports nutrition and even medicine due to its impressive immune boosting and muscular repair properties. HMB's benefits have been shown through research to help delay muscle breakdown and promote tissue growth.

How Much Protein Do I Need Before Bed?

"The International Olympic Committee Consensus on Sports Nutrition states to support a strength or speed based workout routine athletes require 1.7 grams of protein per kg of bodyweight per day. Interestingly research conducted at McMaster University in Ontario, Canada later found that endurance athletes require a greater (or equal) intake of protein than strength athletes to prevent protein catabolism during exercise."

Research: Food, Nutrition and Sports Performance II: The International Olympic Committee Consensus on Sports Nutrition (Ron Maughan et al, 2004).

Q. Who should take / benefit from using TPW™ Bedtime Fuel?

A. Bodybuilders and strength athletes. Endurance athletes and those new to weight training. Plus people involved in team sports or looking to add weight and bulk.

Serving Size: 60g (two 70ml large scoops)

We recommend one serving 30 minutes before bed.


Add 300-350ml of water or milk to your TPW™ Master Blender. Add two large 70ml scoops (60g) of Bedtime Fuel. Then shake well and consume.

The less liquid you use the thicker the shake will be, so adjust to suit your own taste.

Brilliant product, recommend highly

I bought this because I have been finding it hard of late to stop leaving cheat days to cheat days....

I mix half milk and half water, really no need for all of it to be just milk as it is rich enough as it is! With every gulp you get a burst of cocoa which I find surprising doesn't break up when you shake it, but hey, I'm not complaining!

Very tasty, with added L Glutamine. Also, with the 500g bag it says you get 8 servings, I've managed so far to at least stretch this to 12 with 2 more servings left (I have been adding 1 scoop and just under one scoop because of the milk I add).

All in all, stops the cravings and tastes great with all the right ingredients!

Does exactly what it says on the tin (bag!).

Remember - sleeping is a lengthy period of time where you're not getting any food intake so this is the one!

Great fuel!
After having been a fan of chocolate mass matrix for so long, it was a little unusual for me to purchase a different flavour.

This is great though. Mixes well and tastes great. I think I've got a new favourite flavour.
This is a great formula for preventing muscle catabolism when you sleep, due to it providing your body with a drip feed of protein over 7-8 hours.

Since using this i have been less hungry in the mornings which is a great benefit when on a summer cutting diet.

Chocolate flavor tastes great and mixes effortlessly, the added HMB and Glutamine also have aided my recovery and reduced DOMS.

5/5 A great product to provide further muscle growth as you sleep by drip feeding the muscle.

This is a really nice casein product. Solid flavour, very nice smooth taste, mix 350 ml of water in for the best taste. Its fluid, not too thick, and the taste is the best, very nice chocolate, and not synthetic, this is my favourite bedtime product.

Also makes you feel more fresh in the morning, and less hungry, so perfect for when you are low in calories as well.

bough strawberries and cream, great taste, had to get used to it first though because it was very sweet! really help with recovery though
More flavours in this product please , other than that very happy with the quality and results from using this product . 5 star rating
One of my must have products I buy now . Always wake up refreshed and ready to train again. Great stuff
A very nice product and a good buy.
Helps a lot, great price
It definitely helps with the hunger pains before bed after a heavy work-out although a few more flavours would be helpful and a little chalky. Although as bedtime products go, this is the best that I have tried!
Noticed better gains when using this, doesn't sit heavy in the stomach at all and the flavours are awesome. Tastes like a good milkshake if you use milk as the mixer.
I use the strawberry & cream flavour which tastes great as always with TPW. I find it with 300mlnof water a bit grainy so use with 350ml of water instead and that mixes perfectly for me. It really does help with muscle growth, and I do not ache as much the day after a workout as it helps with my recovery. Would like to see more flavours available though.
Strawberries and cream, FANTASTIC.
Use this for night time treat on training days only. Wake up feeling refreshed and not so much soreness in the muscles. Would highly recommend. Will also be buying breakfast fuel. .

Great company. Keep it up guys and keep prices reasonable. I only buy from TPW now.
I run and workout in the late evening and i find taking one of these before bed really helps and i ache less in the morning. Some more flavours would be nice though.
I've been taking this for a week now. I was used to feeling aches in the morning after a hard workout. This works so well at recovery over night, I had to double check that I hadn't reduced the intensity of my workouts as I was waking up feeling great!
Been having it for a month now and no longer feel like death the morning after a heavy session! Its not the best to mix and it needs a good shake but apart from that its perfect!
Drink a shake of this before bed and feel strong in the morning, it's not magic juice so there is still soreness and stretch. Overall mix is smooth, not found any residue in the mixer when used with water and that gets a thumbs up. Can be a little grainy due to the ingredients (to be expected) I go for Choc silk.
Love it!! helps me keep my hunger at bay before bed and I wake up feeling good :).
My PT suggested I try this out . I have never taken a bedtime shake before as I have always only ever used whey protein after I train and during the day.

It is not as smooth as a straight whey protein , I was told that this is down to the milk protein being a slow protein, not an issue at all. Have been taking for three weeks now and have to say that I do feel loads better in the morning V when I wasn't having anything at night .

Helps when you have someone telling you what to take and when , as I feel it makes a big difference to you when taking the right products at the right time . Overall very satisfied .
Take about half an hour before i hit the hay, and keeps me going through the night, have no issue with jumping up in the morning. good product
Extremely effective product 5 stars
Have been having this after heavy weight sessions and don't have the normal aches and pains I used to so I would recommend this and have been!
Was a bit doubtful at first but I have to admit I felt great when I woke up after taking it, I used to hate mornings, now I can't wait for them.
I've never used a night supplement before, normally I just take a shake after my session, however since using this product I've noticed that I'm not nearly as sore in the mornings and I definately sleep a lot better with it, and we all know how important sleep is! Try it, you'll love what it does for you! :-)
Got this in the Summer Bundle, was excited to use it but was a little disappointed when I had it. doesn't seem to mix well and was very thick. Hold ye nose down it an it get the job done. Would buy again due to the clear benefits of what it does.
Bought 'strawberries & cream' flavour which is delicious. Mixes well, with no graininess and really creamy. Great nights sleep each time I've used it. Tend to use it after a tough evening routine and feel no aches the following morning. Finally, having used a few others in the past - service and quality from these guys is second to none.
Good product but taste isn't that great and is quite grainy textured. Results however are good. The main things I've noticed using this product is increased recovery rate and much better sleep, keeps you fuelled throughout the night so you don't wake up hungry. (Strawberry flavour). Trying choc silk next
Have only used this a short while but I've noticed I am sleeping through the night and not waking up in the early hours feeling hungry on training nights.

Mixes well and tastes OK (Chocolate silk). Recommended.
This powder mixes very easily and tastes very nice. I bought the chocolate silk variety and it should last about five weeks so for £1 per shake it's decent value considering the quality.
Never taken a night protein before, so opted for this over straight milk protein. Should have done this years ago, but budget restraints held me back, a brilliant affordable product i won't do without now. Will you be adding in some more flavour choices ?
wake up in the morning with no soreness... perfect
Was very impressed with this product. Tastes good and mixes easily. High protein content and low calorie. I will most definitely be ordering this again.
Ordered this in the chocolate silk. Great taste and mixes easily. One of the best I've tried.
