We offer a wide range of the highest quality protein powders available, all of which are non-GMO, contain no fillers, preservatives, or artificial sweeteners, and are packaged in small batches for optimal freshness.

From active moms to Olympic athletes, just about anyone can benefit from protein powder supplementation. Since dietary protein plays many important roles in our body (from tissue repair to immune system health), it's important that we get enough in our diets. Unfortunately, consuming adequate amounts of high-quality protein can be challenging - especially for those who chose to limit (or eliminate) meat from their diets.

Adding protein powder to smoothies or baked goods is an easy and convenient way to ensure that your daily protein requirements are being met.

IMPORTANT: Regardless of the source of protein powder you choose to use, it's extremely important to choose a product that is of the highest quality and contains only natural ingredients. Simply put, many of the protein powders on the market are full of unhealthy ingredients.

HOW MUCH OVERALL PROTEIN SHOULD I CONSUME PER DAY?

  • Minimum amount: Adults need at least 0.36 grams of protein per pound (0.8 grams per kg) of body weight, every day.

  • Most effective for muscle building: 0.73 grams per pound (1.6 grams per kilogram) of protein per body weight every day. Protein should be consumed within 2 hours of exercise.

  • Maximum amount: Do not exceed 2.3 grams per pound (or 5 g grams per kilogram) of protein per body weight because the liver may struggle to process digested protein fast enough. 

POTENTIAL PROTEIN POWDER HEALTH BENEFITS 

 Increases strength and builds muscle

  • Adding supplemental protein to your diet can promote muscle mass gain, maintain muscle mass even during caloric restriction, and slow down age-related muscle loss.

  • Whey and pea protein is rich in branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) which are the most growth-promoting (anabolic) of amino acids. 

  • Some studies have found that pea protein and brown rice protein are just as effective at building muscle mass and exercise performance as dairy-based protein powders.

 

Burns fat and reduce food cravings

  • Protein supplements in general support weight loss by speeding metabolism and decreasing food intake.

  • A meta-analysis found that adults supplementing with whey protein had significant decreases in body fat and weight. The results were even more significant when adults combined whey protein with resistance exercise. 

  • In animal studies, brown rice protein was found to include unique peptides that reduce weight gain more than those in white rice or soy protein.

  • Protein, in general, can help reduce caloric intake as a result of various physiological mechanisms that suppress ghrelin (the “hunger hormone”) and affect other energy-balancing hormones.

     

Stabilizes blood sugar levels

  • When whey protein is consumed right before a meal, it slows gastric emptying, stimulates insulin, and works to decrease blood glucose levels after a meal.

  • Sprouted grains, including sprouted brown rice protein, have been shown to reduce glycemic response. 

 

Boosts immunity

  • Whey protein and rice protein are high in an amino acid called cysteine. This amino acid is needed for the synthesis of glutathione, an antioxidant which works to boost your immune system. Glutathione also boosts the efficacy of other antioxidants like vitamin C, CoQ10, alpha-lipoic acid, and vitamin E.

  • Hemp protein contains globular plant proteins called edestin and albumin which are responsible for enzymatic functions in the blood plasma and with antibody formation -- all critical for strong immune function.

 

Improves heart health

  • One study found that those that supplemented with whey protein had significant reductions in blood pressure, increased blood circulation, and reduced total cholesterol and LDL (“bad”) cholesterol. 

  • Pea protein is high in an amino acid called arginine. This amino acid is needed to synthesize nitric oxide which promotes elasticity in the arteries.

  • Hemp protein contains the ideal 3:1 ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids which can improve heart health.

 

Extends lifespan

  • As you age, you lose bone mass, muscle mass, and cell function. Increasing protein intake among the elderly improves muscle health, helps to maintain energy balance, contributes to weight management, and supports cardiovascular function.

  • In general, protein-rich diets, provided there is an adequate calcium intake, is beneficial for bone health and prevention of osteoporosis. 

 

Improves liver function

  • Glutathione is an antioxidant synthesized from the amino acid cysteine. This amino acid is abundant in whey and rice proteins. Glutathione plays a key role in liver detoxification and has liver-protecting (hepatoprotective) effects.


Reduces inflammation

  • High doses of whey protein reduced blood levels of C-reactive protein, which is a key marker of chronic inflammation in the body.

  • In hemp protein, the ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids, plus the presence of a specific omega-6 called gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) have anti-inflammatory effects on the body.

HOW TO ENJOY

  • Add a scoop (or two) of protein powder to smoothies, or simply stir into plain water or juice.

  • Stirred into oatmeal, grain porridge or brown rice cereal.

  • Added to baked goods like muffins, brownies or waffles.

  • Whisked into plant-based milk to create a more complete protein source.

  • Blended into a smoothie and frozen inside popsicle molds.
