Mars combines whey and wellness ingredients for a series of multi-benefit proteins

Mars Athena Protein Powder

Chinese supplement company Mars, which came to our attention in a big way last year with its authentic Dragon Ball Super collaboration collection, has a new type of protein powder out this month. That category is what Mars is known for, having several different protein products on the market, including the calorie-dense gainer Power, the flagship hydrolyzed whey protein Mars Protein, and the cost-effective 100% Whey Protein.

Not surprisingly, the latest effort from Mars is another protein powder, although it is a lot less traditional compared to any of its other competitors. The brand has introduced Mars Athena, providing 15g of protein per serving from whey concentrate. What makes this one a bit different is that alongside the protein, it has a blend of vitamins and minerals, and active ingredients for additional health and wellness benefits.

Mars Athena comes in three flavors, each with different extra features, starting with Oolong Milk Tea, infused with white kidney bean and garcinia cambogia for weight loss support. Next is Matcha Green Tea Latte with added Danisco branded probiotics and Fibersol prebiotic fiber for digestion and gut health. Lastly is a Milk Tea flavor where the brand has thrown in 2.5g of collagen and the premium beauty ingredient PhytoflORAL to improve skin appearance, hydration, and texture.

With so many protein powders already available, it’s great to see Mars stick to its guns but still mix it up with the various bonus benefits it offers in the Athena family of protein powders. All of the entries in the series are available through its website, and the brand makes it easy to try them all. You can grab 30 single-serving sachets of any flavor at HK$398 (50.73 USD), or grab a bundle with ten of each for the same price.
