Did you know that Powerootz™ contains pesticide & chemical free protein from raw peas?
In fact, our raw pea protein is processed using only water to extract the protein! Our peas are also grown & processed in Belgium unlike most other pea protein which comes from China (Yuck!).
We chose raw pea protein as one of the main protein sources in Powerootz™ because it is so easy on the stomach and has a high biological value (BV) which equates to more protein assimilation into muscle and no gastric distress or bloating.
High BV proteins are a better choice for increased nitrogen retention, possibly supporting a healthy immune system response and IGF-1 levels. They are superior for reducing lean tissue loss from various wasting states than proteins with a low BV score.
Our raw pea protein isolate contains over 5 times the amount of Arginine as compared to whey protein isolate. Arginine, or L-arginine, is an amino acid that is needed to keep the keep the liver, skin, joints and muscles healthy. Arginine helps strengthen the body’s immune system, regulates hormones and blood sugar and promotes male fertility. In addition, research has shown that this amino acid may improve circulation and combat impotence and heart disease. Large concentrations of arginine are found in the skin, and this amino acid plays a key role in the health of all the body’s connective tissues, particularly the muscles. Arginine helps the body process both creatine, a natural substance that helps build muscle mass, and nitrogen, a chemical needed for muscle metabolism. Laboratory research suggests that arginine may help reduce body fat and speed up weight loss. Arginine has also been shown to help support the body’s ability to heal and repair damaged tissues, and thus may be beneficial to both athletes and those suffering from arthritis.
According to a new animal study from Canada, pea protein has shown promising results in supporting healthy blood pressure levels and improving kidney health. Scientists from the University of Manitoba, found that rats fed pea protein hydrolysate experienced a 20% drop in blood pressure when compared to rats on a normal diet.
Raw pea protein also has superior taste and texture compared to other plant protein (we don’t like gritty!).
Every ingredient used in Powerootz™ was hand selected and curated by owner, Lisa Hunt.
We care about quality, taste, and ingredient integrity. That’s why our shakes are unlike anything out there & the taste is out of this world!
