PEA PROTEIN ISOLATE
Pea protein isolate is obtained from French grown yellow peas by chemical-free wet processing in which peas are combined with water to form a liquid suspension. The amino acids are separated from the rest of the pea suspension using the different electric charges of proteins as compared to other pea components. This leaves us with an average protein concentration of 85-88% per dried pea isolate powder. Pea Protein Isolate is a complete protein and a good source of all 9 essential amino acids as well as all 6 conditionally essential amino acids, with especially high levels of arginine, glutamic acid, lysine and branched chained amino acids (BCAAs).
The protein content of Chia is higher that other nutritional grains. Unlike other grains, it is a complete protein, meaning that it has the appropriate balance of all essential amino acids. Chia seeds are high in fiber, a 15 gm serving of chia seeds will provide 4 to 5 gm of fiber. Our body requires at least 35 gm of fiber a day to stay healthy. Chia seeds contain boron which is essential for bone health. Rich in calcium, about 28g of Chia seeds contains 300 mg of Calcium, as compared to 60 mg for a cup of milk. Chia seeds have 2 times more potassium than banana.
Chia seed gel when becoming wet and this gel, when in our digestive systems, helps prevent some of the food, hence calories that we eat from getting absorbed into our system. This blockage of calorie absorption makes the chia seed a great diet helper. Eating the seeds also helps dieters by making them feel fuller faster so they will be less hungry.
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.
Hemp seeds contains all the essential amino acids, are high in fibre and contains Omega 3 & 6 essential fatty acids in a unique, near perfect ratio for human nutritional needs. Our shelled hemp seeds are mechanically hulled to preserve heat sensitive nutrients. With over 30% protein content, hemp seeds provide the perfect complete plant protein source for vegans and vegetarians.
