Organic Vegan Protein
There are many protein powders on the market. Most are made from milk-based proteins such as whey or casein which are unsuitable for vegetarians. Products shown as vegetarian are often based on soy products which can cause food intolerances and may act as phytoestrogens. Our product is a 4 part blend of plant-based protein from rice, hemp, chia and mushroom. The blend assures that you get all 9 essential amino acids which are often missing in a vegan diet. ϯ
Why This Formula?
Organic Vegan Protein is one of our favorite products. An all-organic, all-plant protein is hard to find but we managed to make one. Four plants equals four times the confidence that your nutritional needs can be met. Add in our enzyme blend and probiotics to keep your gut healthy and it looks even better. It is easy to mix, tastes good, and like all of our products is free of artificial chemicals and common food allergens. ϯ
To ensure that you maintain a healthy GI tract, we have added an Enzyme Utilization Blend for easy digestion and a probiotic blend to maintain healthy intestinal flora.
Protein is the building block of every tissue in the human body. It is composed of amino acids which are used in every metabolic process, even the making of your DNA. Many of these amino acids can actually be manufactured in small quantities by the body, but nine of them cannot. These 9 amino acids are known as “essential amino acids” because it is essential that you get them through your diet. ϯ
While the average American may tend to overeat, their nutritional status is not good. The diet is often lacking in proper nutrients and may not have enough protein. This is especially important with particular populations including the elderly, pregnant women, people who exercise frequently and in vegetarians. ϯ
Most protein supplements are made from animal protein – specifically milk. Whey and casein (from milk) cause food intolerances in a number of people. Other protein suppleemnts are made of soy which can be constipating and cause other food intolerances and may have phytoestrogenic activity. Other products which claim to be vegetarian protein supplements may not have enough of the essential amino acids. ϯ
We offer this blend of four different types of vegetable or plant-based protein. Each of these ingredients is known to be high in amino acids and supply a healthy amount of protein but when combined can guarantee that you are getting a balanced protein with all of the needed nutrition. ϯ
