The Benefits and Features of Balance Plant Protein
Low in Sugar and Saturated Fat
Balance Plant Protein is low in sugars with only 0.1g per serve of powder, making this a great option if you are actively trying to cut back on the sweet stuff for good health. Because it is plant-derived this protein powder is also very low in saturated fats with 0.2g per serve of powder*.
No Animal Products
Balance Plant Protein is formulated without dairy, and does not contain any animal- derived ingredients, making it a perfect source of protein for those who are lactose intolerant and/or vegan.
A Complete Protein Source
Many individual sources of plant protein are considered ‘Incomplete’ proteins, meaning that unlike animal sourced proteins, they do not contain all of the essential amino acids in the right amounts the body requires. A deficiency of one or two essential amino acids can limit the proper development of protein structures in the body. For a non- meat eater, the best way to make sure you get all the essential amino acids in the correct amounts is to enjoy a variety of plant protein sources. Balance Plant Protein contains protein from a variety of plant sources including grains (rice) and legumes (pea) to achieve this balance and ensure your body can get the most out of your protein supplement.
Formulated Without Gluten Or Soy
Balance Plant Protein has been formulated without Gluten and can be enjoyed by those who suffer from gluten intolerance. This tasty plant blend has also been formulated without soy for those who may wish to avoid soy.
Balance Plant Protein contains added (and naturally occurring) Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs); L- Leucine, L- Isoleucine and L- Valine at the optimum ratio of 2:1:1. These three essential amino acids make up approximately 1/3 of the existing muscle tissue, and are preferentially oxidized as a source of energy by exercising muscles. By making sure there is an abundance of these particular amino acids in the diet, you can limit the breakdown of existing muscle as a source of energy.
This ‘Conditionally Essential’ amino acid is the most abundant within the muscle tissue, making it incredibly important for both maintaining and gaining muscle. The body can usually make its own glutamine, but during times of increased stress and intense exercise may be unable to meet demand, and so dietary supplementation may be required.
Added Natural Digestive Enzymes
Bromelain (pineapple) and papain (papaya) help to optimise protein digestion, making sure your body can get all the protein it needs to support muscle recovery and repair.
No Artificial Additives
This means no artificial flavours, preservatives or sweeteners!
Natural Flavours and Sweetners
Balance Plant Protein has been formulated with natural flavours and sweeteners. We’ve used the natural sweeteners stevia (extracted from the leaves of the Stevia rebaudiana plant) & thaumatin (from the katemfe fruit of west Africa). These popular natural sweeteners have long been cultivated and used to add flavor and sweetness to traditional foods.
Balance Plant Protein is made in New Zealand using only the cleanest and highest quality imported and local ingredients. Available in two great tasting and versatile flavours; Vanilla and Chocolate. Mix with water, your choice of fluid or add to your favourite smoothie recipe. Balance Plant Protein can also be added to foods to boost your protein intake.
So if you are looking for a clean, 100% plant protein that has been formulated with both quality and performance in mind then go no further than the Balance Plant Protein. Enhanced with added amino acids and digestive enzymes and with no artificial additives, Balance Plant Protein supports protein uptake and utilization in the body so that you can get the results you want.
