Why is Protein important?
Getting sufficient protein in our daily diet is extremely important as protein is essential for our bodies to function. Protein is the building block of our bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, blood, enzymes, hormones, and hair and nails.
Consuming insufficient protein can cause slow metabolism, weight gain, low energy and muscle growth, bone and joint pain, issues with blood sugar control, slow wound healing and or low immunity.
Why plant Protein?
While most protein powder manufacturers prefer using whey (protein isolated from cow’s milk) due to whey’s cost effectiveness in providing a complete amino acid profile, whey products can sometimes be hard to digest for those who are lactose-intolerant or sensitive. On the other hand, plant protein may not always provide a complete source of amino acids.
To find a happy medium between the two, a unique blend of Soy, Pea Flaxseed and Chia Seed proteins is preferable as it is able to provide a complete essential amino acid profile while also being vegan and gluten, lactose & allergen-free.
