Sunwarrior CLASSIC PLUS organic protein powder

Written by lee on . Posted in Ingredients, Natural Products, Reviews

Protein PowderBuying the right protein powder can be extremely confusing, especially when you’re looking for one that’s full of protein, easy on the digestive system and contains no hidden nasties!

One brand, Sunwarrior, has introduced a protein powder called Classic Plus that is not only tasty, but a great way to hit your nutritional jackpot each day.

The Classic Plus organic plant-based protein powder is completely raw, organic, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, hypoallergenic and Non-GMO. This powder is perfect for anyone needing a protein boost; regardless of the diet they’re following.  It’s nutritious and packed full of vitamins and minerals without lacking on the taste factor which is a big plus when it comes to supercharging your morning smoothie.

Protein powders can be extremely tough on the digestive system and gut however, Sunwarrior have created a formula that is easily absorbed and digested, and even has the bonus of increasing absorption of vitamins and minerals. If you want to rebalance your body’s alkalinity and improve your overall wellbeing with just a scoop of powder, then Sun Warrior is your answer.

 The Sunwarrior Classic Protein uses raw sprouted brown rice to create a hypoallergenic protein powder that contains all the essential and non-essential amino acids. This beautiful protein powder is gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free and has a silky-smooth texture that’s often difficult to find in vegetable-based protein powders. 

The powder is composed of brown rice protein which is gentle on the digestive system, making it gut-friendly and Lee Supercharged approved! It’s also rich in lysine, an amino acid that’s often missing in action among the many plant-based protein choices in the market.

One of the powders in the Sun Warrior range is Classic Protein which can assist in weight loss, helping to boost energy and balance cholesterol levels. The powder is one of the best vegan protein powders on the market, as it’s naturally rich in vitamins and minerals and is super easy to digest, making it suitable for any lifestyle.   Pop a scoop into your morning smoothie or use in an afternoon raw treat!

The Classic Plus variety builds on the original brown-rice protein and has the additional PLUS of pea protein, chia seeds, quinoa and amaranth. This super combination is plant-based and powerful, so perfect for an extra protein hit.  Pea protein is low in calories and extremely nutrient-dense, making it a remarkable plant-based protein. Pea protein is also great for supporting a healthy heart and regulating blood sugar levels.

Another key ingredient in this mix is quinoa. Everybody loves the protein-rich, high-fibre and calcium-packed superfood seed (yes, seed!) quinoa! It stimulates the immune system and is full of iron, magnesium and other trace minerals.

The next pocket-rocket addition is small in stature but huge in benefits; Chia seeds, are included in this protein blend. Not only are they high in omega fatty acids, protein and minerals, they’re also rich in soluble and insoluble fibre so they can have a prebiotic effect within the body.

The final nutrient included in this power protein powder is amaranth, which is sustainable, delicious and nutritious. Unlike many vegetable-proteins, amaranth is high in bioavailable protein and even contains all the essential amino acids.

Nature’s Way Whole Foods Vitamins

Written by lee on . Posted in Ingredients, Reviews

If you’re looking for a way to include more vitamins and minerals in your diet in addition to food, then choosing the most natural versions over synthetic alternatives is a must.
Many vitamin supplements on the market are synthetic and often contain additives, fillers, GMO ingredients, soy, hidden MSG, sugar, hydrogenated oils, artificial colors and other nasties.
Synthetic vitamins are manufactured in laboratories to mimic the way natural vitamins act in our bodies whereas natural vitamins are derived directly from plant material containing the vitamin, offering the full nutritional benefit of natural whole foods.
It’s important to include a range of macro and micro nutrients in our diets and whole foods are the most natural way to do that.  Vitamins and minerals act as cofactors in our bodies, they're like a missing piece of a jigsaw puzzle that is essential for our enzymes to work.
The Nature’s Way new range of vitamins called The Whole Foods range is 100% vegan and derived from natural vegetable extracts and don’t  contain animal products, gluten or lactose. They’re a great way to top up your daily nutritional requirements via a natural food based vitamin.
You’ll find a Women’s Multi and Men’s Multi, Magnesium Powder, Vitamin C and Vitamin D3 in the range.  They’re easy to swallow and include nature’s wealth of fruits, veggies and herbs from gardens, orchards, farms and even the ocean to deliver a full spectrum of nature’s benefits.
Magnesium is an incredible supplement to take as it’s a muscle relaxant and ideal for relieving stress, enabling sleep, muscle recovery post exercise and pre-menstrual cramps.  The Nature’s Way Magnesium Powder comes from natural marine magnesium, organic spinach, quinoa, chlorella and maca, which delivers 325mg of elemental magnesium per serve.
The Vitamin C is sourced from vitamin C rich fruits such as camu and acerola, and the Vitamin D3 from Lichen is one of the only plants on the planet that provides Vitamin D3.  Multivitamins for men and women offer benefits from over 27 fruits, vegetables and herbs.
As an advocate for whole food, I want to support brands that make an effort to go back to natural, real ingredients so I’m very pleased that we can now safely consume vitamins made from real food too.  And as I like to often say: when in doubt… eat whole food and if you’re time poor or have problems digesting food and need supplementation always look for a non-synthetic and natural vitamin or mineral supplement such as Nature’s Way Whole Foods.
