The simplest way to figure out where to start is to identify your primary goal, so look at the topics below and see which goal fits you best. Any product with an * is ideal for those favoring a plant-based diet.
An improved immune system is one of the benefits of protein supplementation. To unlock the body’s power to heal from within, choosing the right fuel is important. Your immune system makes up 30% of your body’s cells, which are continuously replaced. Each cell is made up of a combination of Amino Acids found in proteins. When you take in clean proteins, you get a cleaner, healthier body and that’s a smart choice! These choices are the best for general wellness for the whole family.
To maximize your workout, we believe you should consume a meal approximately 2.5 hours before you exercise. Those calories are then stored in your muscles as Glycogen and are the most efficient calories that you can burn to support your workout. If you haven’t eaten properly prior to your workout, a high glycemic, fast-digesting drink is a great option. Because recent studies show that your body starts to process protein while you exercise, you can get a jump on Recovery by adding a clean protein into the mix. Try these:
Post-Workout Recovery is an often-ignored component of an exercise routine. After exercise, your body starts to rebuild and recover from the damage that you’ve just done (don’t worry…it’s good damage). Apart from rehydration, your body will need Protein and Carbs to fully recover. If you are looking to fine-tune that Recovery, you need to understand that different types of exercise calls for different types of Recovery. Here’s the basics:
Cardio (Aerobic) Recovery – Requires fast digestion because your metabolic rates drop quickly following your workout, so fast absorbing proteins are best.
Weights (Anaerobic) Recovery – Requires a combination of slower and faster digestion because the stress that muscles endure will drive a heightened metabolic rate over a longer period of time.
Functional Training – Requires fast digestion because this exercise will drive metabolic rate to its highest levels, making the demands most critical.
Our eating philosophy is that meals should always contain a combination or Proteins, Carbs and healthy Fats. These macronutrients, when combined in the right proportions, will be low glycemic, slow-digesting calories that supply your body with all the necessary nutrients to keep you healthy and feeling satisfied. These choices blend well to make a delicious meal!
