WHEY PROTEIN CONCENTRATE
Our Whey Protein comes from the highest quality Grade A milk that is antibiotic and hormone free. It contains a full spectrum of essential amino acids plus a robust spectrum of branched chain amino acids (BCAAs). Essential amino acids are vital for the proper functioning of your body, but cannot be produced, so must be consumed as part of your diet.
Not only does whey contain all essential amino acids, it also has the highest biological value (BV) of any protein. This means that amino acids are absorbed more readily and used more effectively for muscle repair and building.
Taking a step back to BCAAs for a minute, whey protein contains the highest amount of any dietary source. It’s nature’s superior tool for muscle maintenance, actually increasing muscle tissue production and reducing breakdown when consumed. And don’t think you have to be a muscle bound body builder to reap the benefits of whey protein. Normal exercise and regular physical activity day in and day out take a toll on your body, and BCAAs can help keep you strong and firing on all cylinders.
Maca is packed with vitamins especially vitamins B1, B2, C and E. It is rich in minerals including calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, sulfur and iron, and contains trace minerals, including zinc, iodine, copper, selenium, bismuth, manganese and silica. In fact, it has about 10% bioavailable calcium and about 12-14% bioavailable protein. It contains nearly 20 amino acids and seven essential amino acids. It is power-packed with life enhancing enzymes.
It has the ability to balance and stabilize the body’s systems (cardiovascular system, nervous system, musculature, lymphatic system, etc.). As an adaptogen, Maca can provide more energy if it is needed, but if it is not, it will not overstimulate. Adaptogens also boost immunity and increase the body’s overall vitality by 10-15% according to most studies. Rather than addressing a specific symptom, adaptogens are used to improve the overall adaptability of the whole body to diverse and challenging situations and stress.

Cacao contains mood enhancing nutrients. Cacao contains MAO Inhibitors, which helps to diminish the appetite making it a very satisfying snack.
