Four Sigmas Above Regular Protein Powder

Made with ingredients we can't stop raving about

 

Organic Plant-based Protein (18 g per serving)

We spared no expenses putting together this full-body-benefit blend. There’s five pure, organic plant proteins here, from four different continents. Hemp and pumpkin seeds from Europe, chia from South America, coconuts from Southeast Asia, and peas grown in the USA. It’s an international all-star team for rebuilding, repairing, and supporting overall wellness.

Organic Chaga Mushroom (250 mg per serving)

Chaga (Inonotus obliquus) isn’t just fun to say out loud, it’s also been used to support immune function for centuries. In Finland (where our founders are from), it was used as a coffee substitute during WWII when beans weren’t available. Today, our Chaga’s sustainably wildcrafted on birch trees. We extract the fruiting bodies to make a mixable, organic powder with no fillers or carriers.

Organic Lion's Mane Mushroom (250 mg per serving)

The scientific name for Lion’s Mane (Hericium erinaceus) kind of sounds like “Hercules”, and with good reason. It’s your brain’s best friend when you want to get stuff done. We extract our Lion’s Mane from wood-grown fruiting bodies: fully organic, with no fillers or carriers.

Organic Cordyceps Mushroom (200 mg per serving)

Cordyceps are famous among endurance athletes all around the world. Studies show that it supports energy and endurance. The power comes from the fruiting body of Cordyceps mushroom (Cordyceps militaris). In nature, it grows on caterpillars, but we love our multi-legged furry friends so we don’t use that kind. Ours are 100% vegan and cruelty-free.

Organic Turkey Tail Mushroom (200 mg per serving)

Turkey Tail (Trametes versicolor) looks like its name. It’s been used for its antioxidant and immune supporting properties for hundreds of years. Ours is pure and wood-grown. We get you the most benefits by extracting the fruiting body to create an organic powder with no fillers or carriers.

Organic Ashwagandha (250 mg per serving)

This is an adaptogen you should get to know. It’s an ancient Ayurvedic herb used for so many benefits and to support so many conditions we can’t fit them all on this page. We love it for its stress and fatigue supporting properties.

Organic Eleutehro (250 mg per serving)

An adaptogenic root used in Asia and Russia for hundreds of years. It’s known as the Siberian ginseng and may support stamina, endurance, and overall well-being. That’s all we can say legally, but we could go on and on.

Organic unrefined cacao powder

The first part of cacao’s scientific name (theobroma cacao) literally means “food of the gods”. We could leave it there, but we won’t. Our cacao is unrefined and oh-so-smooth. Like, sweep-you-off-your-feet-on-a-dancefloor smooth.

Other ingredients

organic coconut milk powder, organic coconut palm sugar, pink Himalayan salt, organic monk fruit. These organic sweeteners, mixed with our real organic cacao create a smooth, creamy, true cacao flavor. Just add water or non-dairy milk, or blend perfectly with your favorite flavors.

The No-Meat Athlete: How a Plant-Based Diet Can Help Your Fitness Goals

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Many health-conscious people, especially athletes and avid gym goers, strive to eat well. So, it’s no wonder that many active people turn to a plant-based diet due to the focus on nutrients, fiber, antioxidants and other phytochemicals that can improve health and fight disease. No Meat Athlete Woman Pouring Green Smoothie From Blender into Glass If this is the case for you, or if you’ve been considering adding more plant foods to your diet, it’s worth learning more about how a plant-based diet can benefit your goals and, if you eliminate all animal foods, what to watch for so you don’t risk deficiencies.

No Meat Athlete Benefits Backed by Science

Cardioprotective effects for endurance athletes

Although cardiovascular activity is a heart-healthy pursuit, endurance athletes who go beyond the training regimens of most recreational exercisers are actually at a higher-than-average risk for atherosclerosis (cholesterol and fat build-up on artery walls) and myocardial damage. Plant-based diets can help because they reduce blood lipid concentrations, body weight and blood pressure. A plant-based diet and other healthy lifestyle habits may also help reverse existing plaque buildup on artery walls and improve blood flow, according to research published in Nutrients. A significant benefit of eating more fruits and vegetables includes antioxidants which reduce oxidative stress, and diets that include plenty of plant foods that reduce markers of inflammation. Reducing oxidative stress and inflammation will improve your heart health, lowering the risks of heart disease, heart attacks and stroke. Of course, you do not need to adopt a plant-only diet to benefit from simply consuming more of these nutrient-rich foods.

High-carb diets boost energy

Most plant-based diets are high in carbohydrates, which is a crucial macronutrient for athletes. Carbohydrates supply the energy necessary to perform well and replace the glycogen stores used to power your muscles and repair muscle tissues so you can get stronger and build muscle. The Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend that 45 to 65 percent of your daily calories come from carbohydrates. While most people don’t have a problem reaching this goal, some athletes or active people may avoid carbs, which have been touted as bad for your or contributing to fat gain. However, these myths are unfounded, and when you eat a diet focused on healthy carbs, you will have much better success powering your workouts and training sessions. The International Society of Sports Medicine recommends following a high-carbohydrate diet (8 to 12 grams of carbohydrate per kilogram of body weight per day) to maximize glycogen stores. Glycogen stores are depleted most by high-volume exercise, so if you perform long or intense bouts of exercise, a higher-carb diet is vital.

Higher intakes of recovery-boosting nutrients

Eating more plants makes you more likely to consume vital nutrients that boost recovery from strenuous training. These include vitamin C, magnesium, beta-carotene and vitamin E. Plant foods that include these nutrients are linked to better recovery and sports performance, helping your tissues repair and recover, reducing inflammation and speeding healing. Fiber intake is also typically higher for plant-based eaters. Fiber is known for fighting inflammation, and people who eat more fiber tend to have lower markers of inflammation than those who eat less. Moreover, research shows that high-fiber diets are associated with physical performance advantages, including faster walking speed, longer 6-minute walk distance, quicker get-up-and-go times, better general performance and higher grip strength.

No Meat Athlete Risks to Consider

There are different risks depending on which type of plant-based diet you choose. Vegetarianism eliminates any meat, including poultry, fish and seafood. Vegan eaters do not eat meat or products of animal origin, such as dairy, eggs and honey. Veganism poses more challenges to ensuring a nutritious diet for athletes. Common issues include lack of energy (calories) and protein; getting enough iron, vitamin B12, zinc, iodine, calcium and vitamin D; along with trouble getting enough of the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, according to the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition. Female athletes must be particularly cautious of becoming low in iron since this nutrient is commonly deficient and even more likely to lead to deficiency and anemia if you avoid animal products. Additionally, the experts suggest that vegan athletes supplement with creatine and beta-alanine since these diets promote lower muscle creatine and muscle carnosine levels.

Is a plant-based diet right for you?

Your basis for choosing a plant-based diet may be personal and, due to ethical, religious or other reasoning, should be honored. If you are, instead, simply curious if a plant-based diet can improve your athletic performance or boost your health in different ways, you can certainly try it and see how you feel. If you are an athlete, and especially if you are female, if you choose a strict vegan diet, it’s imperative you work with a dietician to ensure your iron levels remain adequate. If your iron stores are low, a strictly plant-based diet may not be appropriate for you until you can ensure you can get enough. Variations of plant-based diets may suit you better than others, depending on your needs. You can try vegetarian, pescatarian (fish and seafood allowed), flexitarian (mostly plant-based with occasional meat), or another variation that includes some animal products such as dairy or eggs. Speak to your doctor about your specific nutritional needs and consider diet planning help from a dietician or nutritionist.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_text_separator title="Plant-Based Product Picks" border_width="2"][vc_row_inner equal_height="yes" content_placement="middle" gap="35"][vc_column_inner width="1/3"][vc_single_image image="163041" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" img_link_target="_blank" css=".vc_custom_1666584418218{padding-right: 7% !important;padding-left: 7% !important;}" link="https://www.vitacost.com/vitacost-synergy-vegan-multivitamin-including-green-foods-and-digestive-enzymes"][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width="1/3"][vc_single_image image="163040" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" img_link_target="_blank" css=".vc_custom_1666584438755{padding-right: 7% !important;padding-left: 7% !important;}" link="https://www.vitacost.com/naturelo-vegan-b12-with-organic-spirulina"][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width="1/3"][vc_single_image image="163039" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" img_link_target="_blank" css=".vc_custom_1666584457548{padding-right: 7% !important;padding-left: 7% !important;}" link="https://www.vitacost.com/garden-of-life-md-protein-sustainable-plant-based-creamy-vanilla"][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row]
