As an Ironman, I understand the importance of nutrition. It can make a massive difference in performance. Without the right nutrition, there is no way I would have finished the ironman.
Even professional athletes would have difficulty without the right nutrition. They often call it the fourth discipline. Without the right amount of glycogen, protein, and fat, you would bonk. Otherwise known as hitting the wall with your energy levels due to the lack of glycogen. It can ruin a race and you most likely wouldn’t be able to finish. Or would at least need to take a break. No matter your sport, nutrition is essential to performance.
It can make the difference between good and great, great and excellent, and excellent and world class. Every top class athlete understands that. Whats more important is that everyone realizes that. Nutrition can make a huge difference in anyones life: their mood, health, and performance - sport and at work.
The Plant Era Strawberry vegan protein powder is delicious, tasty, and nutritional. It’s Strawberry-Basil taste makes it one of a kind and unique. On top of this, the texture and solubility is smooth and lacks the gritty and sandy feeling many other powders have.
In addition, it is one of the best vegan strawberry protein powders out there due to its strong nutritionals and performance enhancing ingredients.
Unlike whey protein, it is dairy free and completely vegan. It is also gluten free, sugar free, and free from artificial ingredients. Made with completely organic ingredients and two plant based proteins it is sure to enhance muscle growth and recovery.
Going plant based can do wonders for your health and body. The high levels of antioxidants in vegetables aid muscle recovery and fight chronic illness. Eating vegetables over meat protein can reduce body fat and your intake of saturated fat.
Reducing your consumption of saturated fat does wonders for your cholesterol, blood pressure, and heart rate. It allows oxygen in the blood to go to muscles that need it most resulting in greater muscle efficiency.
The product has a strong set of usps. To begin with, it has over 20 grams of protein and no added sugar We use pea and rice protein because of their strong nutritional values and amino acid profile. Rice protein has a complete amino acid profile, but isn’t very high in all twenty amino acids. When combining it with pea protein, it hits them all quite well.
Peas are a great source of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, protein, and fiber. These ingredients holistically can do your body wonders - from improving recovery time to fighting chronic diseases to helping with digestion. It was an easy decision to incorporate peas into the product.
Along with vitamins A, K, and C found in peas, they also contain folate, phosphorus, and mangase. Our plant based protein powder also contains a range of vitamins and minerals. One serving contains 50% of your necessary vitamin B12. This is great news to those on plant based diets given that B12 is gained through meat, dairy, and fortified foods like soy milk.
For meat eaters, this is still a joy given that B12 fights fatigue, gives energy, and helps with body coordination and the mood. Many studies claim that even meat eaters are prone to B12 deficiency, and people with crohn's disease or other IBS diseases are at highest risk.
Another key thing that many people on plant based diets lack is iron. Iron is extremely important which is why one serving of our organic protein contains 35% of the daily value. Being that it is organic, all the ingredients are of the highest quality.
This also means that our ingredients are the most sustainable they could be. Rice and peas are some of the most sustainable protein forms available which factored into our decision to use them. Because sustainability is a key part of our DNA, we have pledged to donate 1% of profits to the United Nations. All profits will fight climate change and other environmental concerns.
The best way to use our protein blend is to mix it with 300 ml of your favorite liquid (water, almond milk, etc.), shake, and drink. Alternatively you can blend it in a smoothie which always tastes great.
I love mixing the chocolate protein powder with peanut butter, spinach, hemp protein from hemp seeds, and pumpkin seeds. For the strawberry-basil, I love using this smoothie recipe (LINK) or keeping it simple and mixing it with ice, bananas, flax seeds, spirulina, and spinach.
The breakfast smoothie is a great way to start off your day because of the healthy fats, antioxidants, fiber, protein, and vitamins and minerals. The protein shake really helps me focus and start off my day on the right foot.
We currently have two flavors available: chocolate and strawberry basil. At a later time we will release a vanilla flavored shake, but it needs to be mastered and taste great prior to release. It will also have seeds and other ingredients factored into it.
The protein powder is best used within thirty minutes post workout, but also great to start off breakfast with, before working out, or as a healthy snack.
Our protein powder retails at $65 on theplantera.com, but subscription costs $50 a month. This contains over 30 servings of high quality organic plant based protein.
