Dietary plant-based proteins provide essential and non-essential amino acids that support general daily protein requirements along with cardiovascular health benefits. Vegan plant proteins tend to be higher in nonessential amino acids than most animal-derived food proteins, and as a result can support healthy blood glucose and lipid levels. Additionally, studies show that a low-calorie, low-protein vegan diet supports healthy blood pressure, lipid, insulin, and CRP levels in comparison to an animal protein Western diet.
The 5 sources of plant proteins in this formulation deliver different characteristics and nutritive benefits. Organic black chia seed (Salvia hispanica) provides a source of protein, fiber, antioxidants, essential minerals and B vitamins. Organic chlorella from algae, with a cracked-cell wall, has shown in studies to support liver detoxification, immune health, and DNA/RNA. Organic milled golden flax seed is high in fiber and healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Pea protein isolate from yellow peas provides an excellent amino acid profile and naturally occurring minerals. Brown rice protein is from non-GMO sprouted brown rice with an amino acid profile similar to mother’s milk and well tolerated, making this an excellent alternative protein source to dairy or soy.
The fiber blend in this formula includes inulin, a prebiotic for gastrointestinal health and probiotic survival, and apple pectin is a soluble fiber to aid in bowel regularity and colon health. Bacillus coagulans, also called Lactobacillus sporogenes is a spore probiotic with increased survivability through stomach acid and bile to proliferate beneficial bacteria and lactic acid in the intestines. Vegetarian enzymes protease and hemicellulase are included in this formula to help digest the protein for nutrient assimilation. Organic green grasses of spinach, kale, alfalfa and spirulina provide key nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, phytosterols and antioxidants. Vitashine D3™ is vegan vitamin D from lichen, a plant-like source.
A healthy balance between levels of free radicals and levels of related oxidants is important for optimal health. Imbalances of free radicals, and potentially unhealthy levels of oxidants versus antioxidants are defined as oxidative and nitrosative stress. Ultra Protein Green contains a full color spectrum of 29 fruits, vegetables, and herbs that provide a high total ORAC antioxidant value. The Spectra™ Phytonutrient blend has been clinically studied in humans for support of healthy oxidative and nitrosative stress markers (free radicals), nitric oxide levels, and cellular metabolic activity. Biological active phytochemical compounds including quercetin, vitamins, minerals, and a strong antioxidant capacity allow the Spectra blend to help support optimal health.
