ABOUT OUR PRODUCT
Our 01 Women’s Protein Powder is flavoured only with raw organic Peruvian cacao for a smooth chocolate flavour but with all the benefits of the superfoods adaptogens. Organic brown rice and fermented pea proteins create the protein base providing 17g of protein per serving with a full amino acid complex, including the nine essential ones that our bodies can’t naturally make but are essential for vital bodily functions such as repairing muscle growth and so much more. We’ve adapted our Woman 01 powder carefully to focus on the specific needs women wanted in our market research. “More energy, clear complexion, feeling fuller for longer, reduce stress, balance hormones, no more bloating!” View our ingredients to see how each adaptogen’s powerful properties can help you.
We recommend adding two scoops of our coconut reusable scoop or two heaped tablespoons (30g) to 350ml of dairy free milk to make a supercharged smoothie like you’ve never had before.
Organic Red Maca also known as Peruvian Ginseng is actually a root vegetable. Our maca is grown by a co-operative of local farmers in Peru at just above 4,000 metres, in the Carhuamayo province of the 'Meseta del Bombón’. The maca seed is sown in September at the start of the rainy season. After sowing, the seeds are buried using branches or sheep are released into the field to trample them into the ground. The maca roots are dug out by hand using a small hoe called a cashu to avoid damaging them, then laid out under the sun for 10-15 days until they are dried. They are quickly transported to a local processing plant where they are carefully weighed, cleaned and only the best quality roots selected for processing. Without the use of chemicals they are milled into a fine powder and tested for microbes. This plant was first documented in the Peruvian Andes, where the Incas used it as a stamina and strength booster for their warriors. It is an adaptogen, a natural substance that promotes homeostasis in the body by normalising the production of stress hormones, keeping you calm during stressful situations. It is also known as a powerful aphrodisiac for both men and women and a powerful source of antioxidant activity, stimulating glutathione and antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD) production. This powerful antioxidant action provides tremendous support to a healthy immune system, promoting overall health and longevity. These antioxidants work to fight off free radicals in the body that damage the cells and cause disease. We’ve chosen red maca for our Woman 01 powder as it has been shown to be the best maca for women looking to boost their fertility and regulate menstrual cycles. Red Maca is the type of Maca that is highest in phytontutrients and could improve female libido. Due to the levels of glucosinolate, maca also contains wonderful hormone-balancing properties.
Organic Agave Inulin Powder is considered a super fiber, offering up to 10 grams of fiber per 1 oz serving. It promotes digestive health by serving as a prebiotic and that aids in healthy gut flora. Agave inulin also supports bone health by promoting the body's normal absorption of calcium and magnesium. As an inulin, it has a very low impact on blood sugar levels. Many prebiotic inulins are manufactured from sucrose or extracted from chicory root by industrial process. Ours is a certified organic, raw agave inulin powder extracted from the leaves of the Blue Agave Tequilana Weber plant from Mexico, grown with first rate organic farming and harvesting methods without any heating or steaming.
Prebiotics are essentially nutrient sources, or “fuel,” for the beneficial bacteria that live within your gut. As prebiotics make their way through the stomach without being broken down by either gastric acids or digestive enzymes, they bring about positive changes in the digestive tract and organs. Since they act like food for probiotics, prebiotic compounds help balance harmful bacteria and toxins living in the digestive tract, which has numerous health implications, including improving digestion. We’re fed up of ‘the bloat’ and doing all we can to prevent it. "Other benefits of great gut health can be improved stool quality (frequency and consistency) which reduces the risk of gastroenteritis and infections, improves general well-being and reduces the incidence of allergic symptoms,” according to a report in The British Journal of Nutrition. Prebiotics enhance our ability to absorb important nutrients and trace minerals from the foods we eat and reduction of inflammation which has long been known to play a role in many chronic serious illnesses. it’s also becoming clear from more and more research that mood-related disorders like anxiety or depression are highly tied to gut health.
