Why Protein Matters
In order to carry out everyday tasks—like making enzymes, hormones, and neurotransmitters—your body needs protein. Not just any protein will do. You need a specific set of amino acids and you need both animal and plant protein.
Some grain-like seeds are a complete source of protein. We have included these—specifically amaranth and quinoa—in Immune Power Protein Shake.
But Fermented? Really?
Yes, Fermented! And here’s why:
- Fermentation removes anti-nutrients, like phytates and tannins, which bind to important minerals and interfere with your ability to thrive.
- Fermentation pre-digests the food for you, making it easier to digest as you rebuild your inner ecosystem.
- Fermentation enhances the levels of vitamins and antioxidants in food, making it more nutritious.
Immune Power Protein Shake includes:
- Organic Mushroom Blend features Reishi, King Trumpet, Lion’s Mane, Cordyceps, Agaricus, Turkey Tails, Shiitake, and Maitake. Each mushroom can stand on its own as powerful superfood that supports a robust immune system and helps fight the noxious effects of modern chemicals. Together, the organic mushrooms in our exclusive Blend reinforces your gut barrier while feeding your inner ecosystem, helping you to lose weight and feel your best.
- Pea Protein Concentrate is made by carefully separating the protein from the starch of the pea. This allows us to double the amount of protein that you usually get from peas.
- Organic Amaranth and Organic Quinoa are two Body Ecology grain-like seeds that are complete proteins. This means you have all the amino acids you need to synthesize hormones and make new cells. Because our Protein Blend is fermented, you don’t have to worry about harsh anti-nutrients that rob your body of minerals.
- Organic Broccoli and Organic Kale are both members of the Brassica family. This means that they are cruciferous vegetables and naturally high in a compound called sulforaphane. Sulforaphane protects against oxidative stress and inflammation.
- Hebridean Sea Kelp is alkaline brown algae that swells in your gut, helping you feel full and satisfied after a meal. It also contains a starch called fucoidan, which controls extreme blood sugar spikes. The fiber in brown algae slows down the digestion of your meal without interfering in the absorption of nutrients.
Bifidobacterium longum is a probiotic that supports a healthy inner ecosystem and it’s most plentiful in breastfed babies. This bacteria is very well adapted to competition in guts with diets rich in plant-derived complex carbohydrates. They contain a large number of genes predicted to be involved in the metabolism of plant-derived dietary fiber. These fibers become very important short chain fatty acids. Short chain fatty acids are used by the bacteria for fuel so that they can perform their many vital functions.
- Enjoy an organic and complete protein that is easy to digest.
- Choose a vegan protein powder that isn’t filled with harsh anti-nutrients.
- Support your immune system and bid farewell to inflammation.
- Naturally buffer the effects of stress, leaky gut, and Candida overgrowth.
- Reprogram your cells to flourish.
- Harness the power of the sea and manage blood sugar spikes while shedding unwanted weight.
Suggestions For Use: Mix one scoop with 8 ounces of water or other liquid and enjoy!
