Pro-Peaz is a pea protein powder with a difference.
This is a complete vegetable protein sourced from sugar snap peas, blended with other beneficial nutrient dense superfoods and herbs. Contains chicory root extract, green tea extract, dandelion root powder, spirulina powder and acai berry extract for added antioxidants, fibre and phyto-nutrients. It is sweetened using stevia leaf extract.
This protein is concentrated from the normal level of 6% in fresh peas, to around 80%! That’s 72.2g per 100g. It is a complete protein, naturally low in carbs, fat and calories. It contains no added sugar, salt or other nasties.
Pea protein is highly soluble and therefore easy to digest and absorb with no bloating. It is free from gluten, dairy, lactose, animal products, soya and other anti-nutritional ingredients. This hypoallergenic protein powder is an ideal source of protein for those with food allergies and/or intolerances.
Pro Peaz contains peas for the following benefits
It is rich in
- “branched chain amino acids” (leucine, isoleucine and valine)
- lysine - an essential amino acid
- glutamine - this is involved in protein synthesis
- arginine - this is involved in weight management and immune function. Pea protein is richer in arginine than any other commercially available protein.
Peas are also rich in many vitamins ( A, B Vitamins, C and K) and minerals (including calcium, iron, zinc, magnesium, phosphorus, copper and manganese). They also contain soluble and insoluble dietary fibre (essential for gut health). Phytonutrients, phytosterols and antioxidants are also present which will help with long term health.
Unlike most other pea proteins on the market, Pro Peaz is free from hexane and other toxic chemicals that are commonly used in the extraction process with peas. Pro Peaz pea protein is extracted using only water, pressure and flocculation.
The other added ingredients in Pro Peaz make it a protein powder with a difference. Not only does it have such a great source of protein but it also has added extras that effectively make this protein into a functional protein powder.
This means that it also has other added benefits for the body. Some of these ingredients/benefits are:
Chicory Root Extract - this is rich in a natural vegetable fibre called inulin. This is beneficial to maintaining a healthy gut. The digestive tract doesn't have the enzymes required to digest inulin, so it passes through and reached the large intestine intact. Here it provides nourishment for good bacteria. In this way, it acts like a prebiotic. The short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) that are created during the breakdown of chicory root, help to regulate our metabolism and help with the hunger/satiety mechanism. By having good bacteria, SCFAs and extra fibre, the body may be able to absorb more calcium, have a better blood sugar response and better bowel movements.
Green Tea Extract - Green tea is rich in catechin polphenols which are powerful antioxidants. Green tea can be effective at lowering LDL cholesterol and blood pressure. It is beneficial for weight loss due to the thermogensis and fat oxidation, boosting the metabolic rate without increasing the heart rate.
Dandelion Root Powder - This can be used as a gentle laxative, digestive aid, to treat liver and kidney issues, reduce inflammation and help regulate blood sugar levels
Spirulina Powder - This is highly nutritious blue-green algae is a complete food that supplies a wide range of nutrients including vitamins, minerals, chlorophyll and protein. It is great for boosting the immune system, improving digestion, lowering fatigue, building endurance, increasing energy levels, appetite control, healthy heart function. It can also support the liver and kidneys, cleanse and detox, lower inflammation and alleviate allergy symptoms.
Acai berry Extract - These berries are only found in the Amazon Rainforests and they contain a wide variety of vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and antioxidants. They have anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. They support the immune system, help with heart function and can help with cholesterol levels.
Pro-Peaz is more than just a protein powder.
