Proteins are essential for muscle growth and repair – they are the building blocks of life. Every cell in the human body contains protein, including skin, muscles, organs and glands.

Most protein in the human diet comes from animal sources such as meat, fish, dairy and eggs. It is also found in nuts, legumes and some grains. Getting enough healthy protein can be challenging, particularly if you eat a restricted diet or lead a physically demanding lifestyle – but not anymore our vegan and vegtarian protein powder is 100% free of animal products as well as artificial sweeteners.

About the ingredients:

• Hemp protein powder is high in protein but unlike many protein sources it is easily digestible due to the lack of trypsin inhibitors. Hemp is a vegetarian source of essential fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, fibre, chlorophyll and a complete, balanced gluten-free source of all eight essential amino acids.

Active bodies need access to high protein foods that are easy for the body to quickly digest without using up too much energy. Hemp protein is ideal because it contains high levels of Edestin – this is the most readily digestible and easily absorbed protein known to man.

• Pea protein is around 70% protein. Due to it’s exceptionally high protein, iron and lysine content it is an ideal protein source for athletes. It also provides a unique array of amino acids and is exceptionally high in lysine – amino acids help build tissue and muscle and lysine helps the body convert fatty acids into energy.

Pea protein is also thought to help the body absorb calcium and supports the immune system.

• Maca powder is thought to have a beneficial affect on energy levels and vitality as well as a balancing effect on the hormonal system. Maca contains 8 essential amino acids and is abundant in essential fatty acids. It also contains: Vitamins B1, B2, and C, calcium, magnesium,

iron and potassium all of which have been proven to improve physical performance and reduce recovery time.

Users report an increase in stamina after taking maca root for only a few days – this may be due to the stabilising effect maca has on the blood sugar levels coupled with the strengthening effect it has on the adrenals.

Increased stamina helps endurance athletes, such as runners and cyclists, perform better for longer but it will also help those working out to lose weight as you can work out at an aerobic level for a longer period of time. Maca might just provide the extra lift needed to hit the gym at the end of tiring day.

• Red Maca is the rarest type of this high altitude root. It provides similar benefits to yellow and black Maca but due to the beetroot red colour it contains an extra host of antioxidants. Red Maca has undergone some interesting research and has been proven to be of particular benefit to men as it protects against prostate cancer and improves bone density.

• Yellow Maca is the most easily sourced variety. Still packed with antioxidants and stamina boosting enzymes this variety is also thought help balance the female hormonal system and boost female fertility. Maca is a unique adaptogen root meaning it adapts to the current state of your system to assist in the areas where it’s most needed.

• Goji berries are a cherished resource in their native country of China, they’re regularly used to aid life expectancy and promote optimum health. The Goji is extremely rich in vitamin A and is bursting with antioxidants.

These berries are commonly known for their benefits in athletic performance which include an increase in the maximum oxygen uptake, endurance, and decreased fatigue for better stamina. They also stimulate Human Growth Hormone (HGH) production, which increases lean muscle, reduces body fat and promotes better sleep.

Goji berries are also known to increase the production, and therefore the activity, of an enzyme called lactate dehydrogenase. As your body becomes tired when exercising your muscles feel tired because there is a build up of lactic acid which reduces the flow of oxygen to those muscles. Lactate dehydrogenase breaks down that lactic acid so that your muscles can work for longer. Boosting the activity of this enzyme will increase the time it takes for your muscles to tire, therefore improving your endurance and muscular stamina.

• Lacuma is a Peruvian fruit rich in antioxidants, B vitamins and protein – it has a sweet mapley flavour and is thought to curb cravings lower blood pressure and boost fertility.

The powder is a natural sweetener but unlike sucrose it doesn’t spike the blood sugar so is entirely safe for diabetics and those on a low glycaemic diet.
Famed in its native country as a holistic antibiotic many people also believe it has cancer-fighting properties.
• Beetroot contains potassium, magnesium and iron as well as vitamins A, B6 and C, and folic acid. It also contains carbohydrates, protein, powerful antioxidants and soluble fibre.

Research has shown that beetroot can help reduce blood pressure as well as its associated risks such as heart attacks and strokes. This is because the high content of nitrates in beetroot produce a gas called nitric oxide in the blood which widens blood vessels and lowers blood pressure.
