Innermost is a British supplement brand, straight out of fashionable Shoreditch, East London. The company sell a range of health and weight loss supplements and protein powders via the official website and from Amazon UK.
Innermost The Strong One is a protein supplement aimed at improving strength, muscle formation and recovery. It is suitable for men or for women and contains 34g of protein per serving plus creatine, so offers a bit more than comparable supplements on the market although the precise quantity of the various proteins is not provided.
Each serving size is equal to four scoops of powder so you could reduce the serving size if required very easily. Innermost The Strong One is available in either vanilla or chocolate flavour. Each 600g bag is sufficient for 15 servings, and you can also buy a trial pack of just one serving if you want to try it before you commit to a whole bag.
Potential side effects may include stomach pain, nausea, cramps, diarrhoea, dehydration, increased bowel movements, bloating, and fatigue.
To minimise side effects we suggest you drink plenty of water while you are using this supplement.
Innermost The Strong One is slightly more expensive than many protein powders on the market. A bag of 600g (15 servings) costs £29.95 if you buy from the official Innermost website. You can also try a trial pack (40g) of 1 serving for £3.75, although by the time you add on shipping costs this hardly seems worth it.
Sign up to the Innermost newsletter (the Inner Circle) and you receive a 10% discount off your first order.
UK shipping is £4.75 (excluding Northern Ireland). If you are in the USA or the Middle East, you can see a country-specific version of the website with prices to match. All deliveries are sent from the UK and shipping costs are calculated at the point of sale.
You can also buy Innermost The Strong One via Amazon UK. Price is £29.95 per 600g pack. Delivery is free.
Innermost The Strong One looks to be a reasonable protein powder. It won’t make you feel like you can leap over buildings as claimed, but it may help you build muscle and maximise your training regime. It is a bit more expensive than many others on the market and in our opinion, this is a mistake on Innermost’s part because with better-known brands available at a cheaper price, The Strong One does not look that popular.
We like that the supplement contains creatine and if you are new to bodybuilding, you might find that it helps build strength. Many people find that taking a loading dose of creatine at the beginning of a workout plan gives the best results. Following this, the creatine content of The Strong One is sufficient to provide an effective maintenance dose going forward.
We can’t really see the point of the fruit extracts. In our opinion, eating more fruit and berries as part of your diet will be more effective than a supplement but there again, the fruit content is certainly not going to hurt and will provide a bit more in the way of antioxidants.
Overall, this supplement looks reasonable but we don’t think it is quite good enough to approve. We do not recommend Innermost The Strong One to the Watchdog readers.

If you are trying to build muscle, it is important that you consume plenty of protein. As well as diet, most bodybuilders turn to protein shakes for convenience and as a way to ensure their protein intake contains the correct ratio of amino acids and other muscle building ingredients. After all, you want to build muscle and get big but you don’t want to gain fat.
Innermost The Strong One contains a blend of protein derived from whey protein concentrate and whey protein isolate. Both of these are complete proteins – meaning they contain all the amino acids necessary for health.
Whey protein is also rich in casein – another milk derived complete protein that takes a long time to digest so can help cause feelings of fullness, as well as supply amino acids in a slow release effect. The exact ratio of these different types of protein is not provided in the product information.
The supplement also contains creatine monohydrate, a nitrogenous organic acid which means that it can help with blood supply to organs. Creatine is popular with bodybuilders because it can support training, recovery, muscle, and strength.
More unusually, The Strong One also contains fruit extracts bilberries and Montmorency cherries plus magnesium. Check out the ingredients list to find out more.
Innermost the Strong One comes in a choice of two flavours; vanilla or chocolate and as well as the standard 600g bag of 15 servings, you can also try a taster pack of just 40g (1 serving) for £3.75 if you buy from the Innermost website.
Innermost is a brand under a company called XX14 Ltd based in Shoreditch London – the heart of fashionable hipster London. There is an address provided; 64 Nile Street, Shoreditch, London, N1 7SR but no customer services phone number. Innermost advertise via social media and put on health and training events throughout London, although these have not made it outside the capital yet and seem unlikely to do so.
Other Innermost supplements include Innermost The Lean Plus Capsule (a weight loss supplement), and Innermost The Fit Plus a pre-workout powder.
There are also other protein supplements including The Fit One, The Health One – a vegan protein powder, and The Lean One described as a superfood protein powder.
According to the advertising,

The supplement features:
Yes, we think it will work. It contains 34g of protein per serving which should be effective, although serious bodybuilders would want to see more comprehensive information about the formula such as the quantity of whey protein Isolate which is considered best for weight loss/muscle building, but is generally more expensive when compared to the Concentrate.
If you are new to bodybuilding Creatine can be very effective. This natural substance found in the muscles is also obtainable in animal products such as red meat and fish. It is involved with providing the energy to make the muscles work, and can improve strength and athletic performance.
Studies have found that it is very effective on people whose creatine levels are low, such as vegetarians, the elderly, or people who are new to working their muscles. You can take a loading dose of around 20g a day to build creatine, followed by around 3g a day as here as a maintenance dose.
We can’t see much point to the fruit content. The best way to benefits from the antioxidants of fruit is to eat more fruit rather than take supplements. Montmorency cherries and bilberries are undoubtedly good for health, but will provide greater benefit if included as part of your diet. There is no evidence that the cherries have special powers for muscles and relaxation.
Each serving is equal to 4 x 15g scoops of powder: 40g in total.

Comments are all positive and include,
This is the best protein powder I have tried by miles. It dissolves so beautifully and doesn’t have the grainy taste or texture that many of these products have. It also contains lots of extra superfoods to help with recovery – what’s not to like?! I have tried both chocolate and vanilla and recommend both.
There is one customer feedback comment left on Amazon,
Love the taste and it’s a nice texture, shopped a few protein powders but I’m sticking with this one.
