Plant Protein Complete is a minimally-processed complete food source to augment any diet. Its rich nutrient profile combined with essential macronutrients and crucial micronutrients make it truly a unique vegan protein.
It is derived from non-GMO duckweed, it has an unmatched hypoallergenic profile, making it a whole food source that patients can enjoy without worry. It is free from gluten, dairy, soy, pea, eggs, grains, solvents and animal products.
Each serving of Plant Protein Complete provides 9 grams of protein per serving, with a higher amount of essential amino acids and an improved branched chain amino acids (BCAA) profile compared to other vegan protein sources.
Essential amino acids are important as they cannot be produced in the body, while BCAA’s such as leucine are particularly critical for stimulating muscle synthesis and recovery. Equally important to the amino acid profile, Plant Protein Complete has an excellent digestibility factor that is better than all other vegan protein blends, allowing for improved absorption and utilization within the body.
Macro and Micronutrient Deficiencies
Two of the most commonly deficient macronutrients in the North American diet today are protein and fibre. Moreover, these deficiencies tend to be accompanied by suboptimal levels of multiple micronutrients which can negatively affect overall health.
The daily recommended fibre intake is 25 grams for adult women and 38 grams for adult men, with most Canadians only consuming about half these amounts. Plant Protein Complete helps to close this gap. Each 22-gram serving provides 8 grams of fibre per scoop. This is not only extremely beneficial for the health of the microflora and bowel regulation, but also for blood sugar balancing and healthy cholesterol levels.
Omega-3 and Phytonutrients
Each serving contains a significant amount of omega-3 fatty acids, predominantly as Alpha-Linoleic Acid (ALA), and nutrients such as iron, folate, calcium and vitamin A. Plant Protein Complete is also extremely naturally rich in chlorophyll (171mg) and lutein (15mg), making it particularly indicated for individuals who want to boost daily nutrition, help purify the blood, increase antioxidants or for those with age-related macular degeneration, cataracts or other vision concerns.
Quite simply, Plant Protein Complete is more than just a plant protein, it is a healthy and hypoallergenic whole food source rich in key nutrients ideal for the gut, joints, muscles, heart, brain, eyes, skin and immune system.
Cultivation of duckweed
In addition to the many nutritional benefits that come with Plant Protein Complete, duckweed is a highly sustainable food source. It is considered carbon-neutral with 98% of the required water being recycled during its cultivation.
It’s grown hydroponically on land that is non arable. Cultivation of duckweed via hydroponic farms can happen anywhere while reserving the earth's resources. This combined with its incredible nutrient dense profile, makes Plant Protein Complete a truly exciting whole food source for naturopathic medicine.
