INGREDIENTS IN MORE DETAIL

Chia

The protein content of Chia is higher that other nutritional grains. Unlike other grains, it is a complete protein, meaning that it has the appropriate balance of all essential amino acids. Chia seeds are high in fiber, a 15 gm serving of chia seeds will provide 4 to 5 gm of fiber. Our body requires at least 35 gm of fiber a day to stay healthy. Chia seeds contain boron which is essential for bone health. Rich in calcium, about 28g of Chia seeds contains 300 mg of Calcium, as compared to 60 mg for a cup of milk. Chia seeds have 2 times more potassium than banana.

Chia seed gel when becoming wet and this gel, when in our digestive systems, helps prevent some of the food, hence calories that we eat from getting absorbed into our system. This blockage of calorie absorption makes the chia seed a great diet helper. Eating the seeds also helps dieters by making them feel fuller faster so they will be less hungry.

Pea Protein Isolate

Pea protein isolate is obtained from French grown yellow peas, Pisum sativum, by chemical-free wet processing in which peas are combined with water to form a liquid suspension. The amino acids are separated from the rest of the pea suspension using the different electric charges of proteins as compared to other pea components. This leaves us with an average protein concentration of 85-88% per dried pea isolate powder. Pea Protein Isolate is a complete protein and a good source of all 9 essential amino acids as well as all 6 conditionally essential amino acids, with especially high levels of arginine, glutamic acid, lysine and branched chained amino acids (BCAAs).

Maca

Maca is packed with vitamins especially vitamins B1, B2, C and E. It is rich in minerals including calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, sulfur and iron, and contains trace minerals, including zinc, iodine, copper, selenium, bismuth, manganese and silica. In fact, it has about 10% bioavailable calcium and about 12-14% bioavailable protein. It contains nearly 20 amino acids and seven essential amino acids. It is power-packed with life enhancing enzymes.

It has the ability to balance and stabilize the body’s systems (cardiovascular system, nervous system, musculature, lymphatic system, etc.). As an adaptogen, Maca can provide more energy if it is needed, but if it is not, it will not overstimulate. Adaptogens also boost immunity and increase the body’s overall vitality by 10-15% according to most studies. Rather than addressing a specific symptom, adaptogens are used to improve the overall adaptability of the whole body to diverse and challenging situations and stress.

So what does all that add up to? Here’s what consuming Maca regularly can mean for you:

  • Increased energy, endurance and strength
  • Enhanced libido – it is billed as a natural aphrodisiac
  • Balanced hormones – Maca stimulates hormone levels by working on the pituitary gland – the gland responsible for secreting sex hormones.
  • Immune system support
  • Increased oxygen levels in the blood which improves brain function
  • Improved memory and mental clarity
  • Relief from menopausal symptoms – women who take Maca report LESS fatigue, greater energy and relief from hot flushes and night sweats.
  • Regulation of menstruation and period pain relief
  • Enhanced fertility in both men and women
  • Reduction of chronic fatigue
  • Overall support of the endocrine system
  • Elevates your mood
  • A youthful radiance – thanks to increased blood circulation in your skin

 Lucuma

Nutrient dense creamy Peruvian Superfruit From the Andean valleys of Peru comes a fruit known as as the ’Gold of the Incas’ revered by the ancient Incas for its delicious flavor and nutritional density. Lucuma’s immune-enhancing activities promote proper cell communication and oxygenation of the blood

Lucuma provides 14 essential trace elements, including a considerable amount of potassium, sodium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorus. It also has 92 mg of calcium per 100 g to keep your bones and teeth strong. Phosphorus is important for bone and protein formation, digestion and hormone balance; Lucuma provides 186 mg per 100 g.

Lucuma has been used for centuries in South America for its medicinal properties. The State University of New Jersey reported a study that evaluated the anti-inflammatory effect of Lucuma extract on wound healing and skin aging. Results of the trial determined that Lucuma significantly increased wound closure and promoted tissue regeneration. The report of the study concluded that Lucuma may have anti-inflammatory, anti-aging and skin-repair effects on human skin.

Cacao

Cacao is chocolate, chocolate in its raw state – unheated, NO trans fats, NO sugars, NO dairy. 100% pure, dark chocolate.

Cacao is the second highest antioxidant food in the world  (second only to blue-green algae). Raw Cacao is also a fantastic food source of heart-supporting Magnesium. Cacao contains anti-depressant properties and a great source of well-studied neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine, which are associated with feelings of well being. Cacao contains mood enhancing nutrients. Cacao contains MAO Inhibitors, which helps to diminish the appetite making it a very satisfying snack.

Mesquite

The natural sweetness in the pods comes from fructose which doesn’t require insulin to be metabolized, making it safe for diabetics. Rich in dietary fibre, the nutrients in mesquite are absorbed slowly, effectively balancing blood sugar and preventing hunger.

Mesquite is an excellent protein source at 17% protein, higher than nearly every grain and many nuts or seeds. The presence of L-Lysine supports the reduction of anxiety.

Inulin (Prebiotic)

Inulin feeds the healthy microflora that boost your immunity. Your Inner Ecosystem Loves Inulin. Inside your intestinal tract, you have an “inner ecosystem” teeming with millions of friendly microflora (beneficial bacteria and yeast) competing for survival with pathogenic bacteria and yeast, like candida.

In a healthy body, you always want the friendly microflora in your gut to outnumber the bad, and the best way to ensure this is to feed the good guys. Just like all living organisms, microflora, also called probiotics, need food too in order to thrive and flourish. Their favorite foods are called prebiotics.

Inulin is a great prebiotic and it survives the harsh acids encountered in the stomach and small intestine, making it available for consumption further down the line where probiotics await them. Not only does inulin actively promote the growth of existing strains of probiotics in your colon, it has also shown to encourage the implantation, survival and growth of newly added probiotics.

By boosting the survival and growth of beneficial probiotics in your inner ecosystem, inulin improves your digestion, immunity and disease fighting power.

L-Glutamine

Glutamine plays a role in the health of the immune system, digestive tract, and muscle cells, as well as other bodily functions. It appears to serve as a fuel for the cells that line the intestines. Heavy exercise, infection, surgery, and trauma can deplete the body’s glutamine reserves, particularly in muscle cells.

The fact that glutamine does so many good things in the body has led people to try glutamine supplements as a treatment for various conditions, including preventing the infections that often follow endurance exercise, reducing symptoms of overtraining syndrome, improving nutrition in critical illness, alleviating allergies, and treating digestive problems.

What Is the Scientific Evidence for Glutamine?

Infections in Athletes

Endurance athletes frequently catch cold after completing a marathon or similar forms of exercise. Preliminary evidence, including one small double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, suggests that glutamine supplements might help prevent such infections. A double-blind, placebo-controlled study evaluated the benefits of supplemental glutamine (5 g) taken at the end of exercise in 151 endurance athletes. The results showed a significant decrease in infections among treated athletes. Only 19% of the athletes taking glutamine got sick, as compared to 51% of those on placebo.

Recovery From Critical Illness

One small double-blind study found that glutamine supplements might have significant nutritional benefits for seriously ill people. In this study, 84 critically ill hospital patients were divided into two groups. All the patients were being fed through a feeding tube. One group received a normal feeding-tube diet, whereas the other group received this diet plus supplemental glutamine. After 6 months, 14 of the 42 patients receiving glutamine had died, compared with 24 of the control group. The glutamine group also left both the intensive care ward and the hospital significantly sooner than the patients who did not receive glutamine. Benefits have been seen in other controlled trials as well.
