Vitamin B12 is an essential micronutrient for our body, but we cannot produce it on our own. It is found in a variety of animal foods, but since it does not naturally exist in plant foods (unless it’s fortified), it may be necessary to add Vitamin B12 supplements to your daily routine to meet the daily requirements. Vitamin B12 has many key functions in your body, such as helping red blood cell formation and therefore preventing anemia, helping keep nerve cells healthy, and assisting in the creation of DNA. It has also been shown to improve depressive symptoms and moods, as it plays a vital role in creating serotonin, the “happy hormone”.
The Plant Era was developed by an Ironman for the purpose of staying on the top of your game, regardless of whether it’s for a demanding career or your daily workout. After trying multiple vegan protein powders, he decided to create a best in class product worth consuming for any full or partly plant based individual. Every ingredient has a specific purpose to help you reach your greatest version.
Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. They're essential for muscle recovery, the immune system, and a range of other purposes. The Plant Era protein contains 18 amino acids (essential and non-essential) to enhance your recovery and health
We chose to supplement the product with 50% of your daily vitamin B12 to fight fatigue, enhance energy levels, and improve your mood. Added bonus: for those on plant-based diets, this is key to fight B12 deficiencies stemming from your diet.
As an athlete, it’s especially great given that plant-based diets are associated with lower BMI’s and faster recovery times due to the high antioxidant and low saturated fat levels
The Plant Era was formed by Nicholas Orsini who discovered the power of plant-based diets while training for an Ironman. His recovery accelerated and performance was improved through a lower body fat, better mental clarity, and greater health. Since a cycling trip across America in 2015, Orsini was constantly disappointed in the sports nutrition options out there due to the added sugar, artificial sweeteners, and lack of natural options. Not to mention, most had poor solubility, texture, and taste. It was from these holistic experiences that The Plant Era was born, and after nine months of trial and error, a product he was finally happy with was developed.
