Ingredients

Pea Protein

We selected the highest quality Organic Pea Protein because it is easily digestible and hypoallergenic, containing a generous supply of branched chain amino acids (BCAAs), and delivering a protein level of around 80%. It is an ideal alternative for people wishing to avoid dairy and soya based proteins due to food allergy and intolerance, and is also gluten and GMO (genetically modified organisms) free. We have carefully balanced the amount of Pea and Rice proteins in our blends to create an enhanced amino acid profile and a delicious flavour. Pea protein is a great source of vegetarian protein and can contribute to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass.

Rice Protein

We chose a premium Organic Rice Protein because it contains all nine essential amino acids and is both hypoallergenic and non-GMO. Together with the Organic Pea Protein, we have created a vegan protein that provides all of the benfits of traditional protein supplements, without any of the digestion or allergy aggravators. Rice protein has a smoother texture than hemp, making it ideal for mixing into drinks and smoothies.

Ginger

Ginger is a remarkable spice with a vast array of healing and culinary properties and has been used as a pungent spice and medicine for thousands of years. We were looking for something that would aid digestion and assimilation of proteins and support a healthy digestive system – after all it’s not what you eat but what you absorb! Active lifestyles have a high energy demand and central to achieving this is a healthy digestive system, providing efficient digestion and assimilation of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. Our Organic Ginger naturally provides many antioxidant phytochemicals, highly important compounds that elicit numerous benefits including circulatory and anti-inflammatory effects known to be helpful to health and vitality. Ginger contains very potent anti-inflammatory compounds called gingerols. Gingerols inhibit the formation of inflammatory cytokines; chemical messengers of the immune system.

Maca

Maca also known as ‘Peruvian Ginseng’ is a cruciferous plant, part of the Brassicaceae family, and has been used for centuries as an energiser or ‘tonic’ food. More recently Maca has been recognised as being a powerful nutritious ‘adaptogen’ known to be helpful in improving the body’s resistance at times of stress and fatigue, helping to balance mood. Demanding lifestyles and training regimes can benefit from a diverse range of antioxidant phytochemicals (plant nutrients). Health benefits attributed to Maca are thought to be due to the content of phytonutrients including macamides, glucosinolates, and plant sterols. We have selected Organic Maca from South America as a pivotal ingredient in our blends for its rich tradition as a therapeutic and nutritional powerhouse. Ongoing phytochemical research continues to highlight Maca’s health giving properties.

Seaweed Kelp

In search of the perfect sustainable and pure ‘greens’ to add to our formula, we researched the effects and benefits of including seaweed within the diet. Seaweed contains an abundance of gut bacteria friendly fibres, trace minerals including iodine, immune supportive polysaccharides, and polyphenols – a perfect addition for optimising health and performance. For those seeking to push the boundaries in their training regimes it is vital have the mind and body working in harmony. Key to this is healthy endocrine (hormone) function, particularly the thyroid, as it helps control energy metabolism, body temperature, skin health and more. Iodine is a crucial component as it helps support metabolism, cognitive function, and nervous system function. This exquisite Seagreens® Kelp seaweed is the product of sustainable wild harvesting among remote Norwegian and Scottish islands.

Cranberry

Cranberry is well known for its health benefits and is a rich source of antioxidant polyphenols known as proanthocyanidins.  These potent phytonutrients are many times more powerful than vitamin C or E.  Research suggests that as well as the well-known urinary health properties, cranberry may also help support the cardiovascular and digestive system.    We have carefully sourced Organic Cranberry to provide further nutritional support to our blend.

Baobab

The baobab fruit (Adansonia digitata L.) is found throughout regions of Africa and is becoming increasingly recognised for its high nutrient and polyphenol content. Polyphenols have been shown to be beneficial for their effects on reducing the glycaemic response (GR) to help stabilise blood sugar levels. Additionally, vitamin C levels in Baobab fruit are through the roof. Per 100g of dried fruit, Baobab typically provides over 200mg of Vitamin C which is a whopping 2.5 times the recommend daily amount. We have carefully sourced this Organic Baobab to provide you with a super-nutrient dense food to boost your daily intake.

Flaxseed

Yes, flaxseed has been around in health food stores for a long time – for a reason! It is packed with plant-based omega-3 fatty acids, called alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), fiber, vitamin B-1, manganese, magnesium, and phosphorus. As banal and humble as it may seem we chose it because it delivers. When we looked at how much fibre, omegas and vitamin B it became clear we had to include it. Ongoing research confirms the potent effects of flaxseed in reducing inflammation, improving omega 3:6 ratios, and supporting digestive health (particularly the good bacteria in the gut). This traditional approach of including such a simple ingredient highlights the importance of wholefoods for systemic health and improved vitality and performance.

Stevia

Steviol glycosides are extracted from the stevia plant and are high intensity sweeteners, 250-300 times sweeter than sucrose. They are isolated and purified from the leaves of the Paraguayan stevia plant (Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni), where it is present at levels up to 13%. When consumed, steviol glycosides are broken down into steviol, which is absorbed by the body.
