Our Story

As the longest running protein powder company in Australia, here at Boomers we know a thing or two about protein, and what we do know is it is important to Keep it simple.

This is why all of our products are unflavoured and as close to their natural state as possible. This has been our mantra and our mission, since Boomers was started over 20 years ago!

Boomers is a family run business, its founder Neil started out with just one customer...himself. Neil was a competitive power lifter and along with his coach, decided he wanted protein supplementation for his diet. The protein powder available in the market was not what he wanted, so Neil sourced his own product for his use. From there friends asked about what he was taking and he offered it to them as well. This has continued and Boomers is now a full time business and a leading authority on pure protein powders of the highest quality; maintaining the protein products as close as possible to their natural state.

Over the years, we have seen a lot of products come and go, but we’ve never had to change a thing with our products. We don’t feel the need to be constantly trying to re-invent the wheel - simply because we know it works!

How do we know it works?

Because many people who are serious about their health have found their way to us and have become loyal customers. Boomers products are specifically recommended by several Health Professionals including Dietitians, Nutritionists, Bariatric Surgeons and Naturopaths - For example...

We are extremely pleased with Boomers and have been using it for over 12 months. Boomers was selected after extensive testing. We found that it had freezer and heat stability and maintained its protein content.

One of the main nutrients targeted for the first few months post-Sleeve Gastrectomy and Roux En Y Bypass surgery is protein. This is due to increased protein requirements following the surgical intervention; rapid weight loss where body protein stores are mobilised for energy production and inability to consume adequate amounts secondary to physical restrictions. The most practical way to meet protein requirements post-surgery is by using a concentrated protein supplement. At Indi we recommend patients start supplementing protein during the Nourishing Fluid phase (Phase 2 liquids) – gradually introducing (as tolerated) 50% of their total estimated protein requirements. We recommend a Whey Protein Isolate as this product contains all essential amino acids; has a high bioavailability and high percentage concentration of protein.

Why we recommend and stock Boomers Whey Protein Isolate
  • Contains all essential amino acids

  • High bioavailability of Whey Protein Isolate

  • High concentration of protein by weight

  • High quality product

  • Able to be added to a variety of fluids/foods – no flavour

  • High patient acceptability / compliance

  • Easily accessible from metropolitan and regional shops as well as on-line

  • Locally packaged – quick delivery usually within 2 days of placing order
