When asked to recommend a quality protein powder, I typically encourage people to get their protein mainly from nutrient-rich plant foods that are naturally abundant in protein - dark green vegetables and legumes like chickpeas and lentils are excellent choices for most of us.
Many commercially available protein powder products contain heavily processed protein isolates made from whey, casein, soy, or eggs - these protein isolates are usually exposed to high temperatures that lead to structural changes in the protein that make their usefulness to human health highly questionable.
With that said, there are some good reasons for taking a quality protein powder, the main one being that a high grade protein powder is easily absorbed into your bloodstream, which ensures that your body is nourished with all of the amino acids that it needs to be at its best - amino acids are the building blocks that provide structure to every cell in your body.
Including a high quality protein powder in your daily regimen can:
* Ensure healthy hair, skin, and nails
* Prevent osteoporosis
* Promote optimal muscle mass and physical strength
* Improve endurance (or maintain it at a high level if your endurance is already at a high level)
* Promote optimal physical recovery after workouts
* Keep all of your major organ systems - including your immune, nervous, endocrine, cardiovascular, respiratory, and digestive systems - functioning at a high level.
Over the years, I've experimented with a number of different sources of protein powder, and the three that I have found to be best for promoting all of the above are organic hemp, organic, non-GMO sprouted brown rice, and organic pea protein, which serve as the primary ingredients in our organic, 100% plant protein blend.
Specifically, this protein blend combines organic, non-GMO sprouted brown rice protein with the finest organic hemp protein powder and organic pea protein powder available.
It also includes organic flaxseed powder and organic chia seed powder for their valuable amino acids, fatty acids, and fiber.
I also included organic turmeric powder for its anti-inflammatory properties, as well as its ability to improve liver function, which can only help with protein utilization.
Organic aloe vera is also an important component of this organic protein blend for its ability to support digestive and immune system health, and also to improve cellular communication and protect cellular DNA from oxidative damage.
I also included just enough organic steva leaf powder and vanilla bean powder to please most palates without making this blend overpoweringly sweet.
Here's a look at the nutrition facts panel for our organic protein blend:

There are approximately 36 servings of quality organic protein per jar.
To put it simply, this unique blend of nutrient-rich organic food ingredients delivers highly absorbable and truly healthy protein to fuel, build, and maintain all of your organ systems.
I suggest adding one scoop to your favourite smoothie recipe and enjoy this as a post-workout drink, a mid-day pick-me-up, or even as a meal replacement drink - a number of clients are thriving on a routine of having this for breakfast and lunch to fuel their day, and then a regular meal for dinner, which is a sustainable way of getting and staying lean while maintaining healthy muscle mass.
My favourite concoction calls for one large ripe banana, a tablespoon of almond butter, 12 to 16 ounces of almond milk, and a scoop of this 100% whole food protein supplement. Blend away and infuse your cells with a plethora of health-enhancing amino acids and phytonutrients. If you don't have a Blender Bottle for convenient blending no matter where you are, I can recommend the one that we use here:
