Peas are a rich, low-fat source of highly bioavailable vegetable protein and is a complete protein source for containing all 9 of the essential amino acids we need.
Peas are also rich in vitamins (including vitamin A, riboflavin, niacin, folate, thiamin, pantothenic acid, pyridoxine, vitamin B6, vitamin C, and vitamin K), minerals (including calcium, iron, zinc, magnesium, phosphorus, copper, and manganese) and other nutrients (including fibre, lutein, phytonutrients, and antioxidants).
Plus they’re low in fat, calories, sodium, and contain no cholesterol.
Why Is Our Pea Protein Super Shake So Good?
More than just another pea protein powder… our Pea Protein Super Shake is a blend of vegetable protein sourced from garden snap peas that have been extracted and purified, without the use of hexane or other toxic chemicals. The protein is concentrated from the normal level of 6% in fresh peas to around 80%, providing over 18g of protein per serving.
What’s more, this hypo-allergenic shake has been fortified with the addition of dietary fibre and herbs, including:
- Chicory Root: a rich source of gut balancing dietary fibre
- Green Tea Extract: a powerful antioxidant and stimulant for the metabolism
- Dandelion Root: relieves inflammation and regulates blood sugar
- Spirulina: boosts energy and detoxes the body
- Acai Berries: powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant that nourishes and protects the body
Easily digestible it does not cause bloating or flatulence, which many people experience with dairy-based protein powders – an ideal alternative to whey and soya.
And unlike many other pea protein powders on the market, our Pea Protein Super Shake contains no hexane or other toxic chemicals, which are often used during the pea protein extraction process.
Pea protein isolate: rich in amino acids (leucine, isoleucine, and valine), lysine (an essential amino acid), glutamine (involved in protein synthesis) and is richer in arginine (involved in immune system function and weight control) than any other commercially available protein.
Chicory root extract: rich in a natural vegetable fibre called inulin. Plants like chicory store extra energy in their roots in the form of inulin and other carbohydrates. The inulin in chicory root can be extracted and isolated for use as dietary fibre. The digestive tract doesn’t have the enzymes needed to digest inulin, so it passes through our gastrointestinal tract and into the large intestine intact. There, it serves as nourishment for our microbiota, making it a prebiotic. Inulin, in particular, is very effective in supporting the friendly bacteria of our microbiota. Chicory root also helps with the absorption of the mineral calcium, lowers blood glucose levels after eating, and maintains regularity.
Green tea extract: rich in catechin polyphenols. Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), in particular, is a powerful antioxidant. Some studies have shown green tea polyphenols to have a stronger antioxidant action than vitamin C and E. Green tea is also effective at lowering LDL cholesterol and blood pressure levels and inhibiting the abnormal formation of blood clots. It is also known to be beneficial for weight loss, because the polyphenols induce thermogenesis and stimulate fat oxidation, boosting the metabolic rate without increasing the heart rate.
Dandelion root powder: has been used as a digestive aid, to treat liver and kidney problems and to relieve inflammation, and to help regulate blood sugar levels.
Spirulina powder: highly nutritious blue-green algae. It is primarily used for boosting the immune system, improving digestion, reducing fatigue and building endurance, cleansing and detoxification, boosting energy levels, controlling appetite, maintaining healthy heart function, supporting the liver and kidneys, reducing inflammation, and alleviating allergy symptoms. Spirulina is a complete food that supplies an incredibly wide range of nutrients, including protein, vitamins, minerals, Omega 6 fatty acids, chlorophyll, and other phytonutrients.
Acai berry extract: found only in the Amazon rainforests of Central and South America, these berries contain a wide array of vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, and antioxidants. Acai berries have anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and anti-mutagenic properties and are particularly beneficial for the immune system. Their dark purple pigment contains plant chemicals called anthocyanins (powerful antioxidants that are part of the flavonoid family of molecules and are important for neutralising harmful free radicals). Acai berries are also a rich source of protein and dietary fibre, which are believed to have a protective effect on the cardiovascular system. They are a rich source of Omega 6 and Omega 9 fatty acids and phytosterols, which play an important role in lowering the levels of cholesterol in the blood.
500g powder, As a drink: Mix 1 serving (25g = 4 heaped teaspoons or 1 scoop) into water, fruit, vegetable juices, etc. It can also be blended with berries and fruits, added to juices, or sprinkled onto cereals for that extra nutritional boost and sweetness.
