Benefits

RELIEVES RESTLESSNESS & NERVOUSNESS

Feeling restless and fidgety in the evening? Struggling to turn the mental hamster off at bedtime? Passionflower is especially suited to support our nervous system and help ease us into a state of relaxation and sleep [1].

HELPS IMPROVE SLEEP QUALITY

Sleep quality is generally measured by how long it takes us to fall asleep, how long we stay asleep, and how recuperative our sleep is. The combination of plants and nutrients in this formula support all three of these aspects of sleep quality [2] [3] [4].

HELPS BUILD AND REPAIR MUSCLE

Taking protein close to bedtime can provide the body with important muscle building amino acids to help repair and rebuild during sleep. You can improve muscle mass while you snooze. (When combined with regular resistance training and a healthy balanced diet, of course!)

HELPS RELAX TIRED MUSCLES

Muscle tension contributes to more stress and fatigue, which also contribute to more muscle tension. It can be a vicious cycle. Plants that support relaxation and Magnesium, a calming mineral that helps our muscles release, can be very helpful for transitioning out of this spiral of tension.

Protein Blend

Quinoa

Quinoa is an outstanding nutritional powerhouse. It has the highest protein content of all grains (although technically not a grain) and unlike most plant-based sources of protein, it provides a complete protein, which means it contains all the essential amino acids. Paired with Brown rice, we have a complete, well balanced protein for our everyday needs.

Brown Rice
Brown Rice

Botanica’s organic brown rice is treated with organic enzymes to support ease of digestion and to help break down some of the starch and fiber thereby naturally increasing the final protein content.

Coconut

Coconut was chosen for this formula in part to support a balanced protein profile, and largely for its yummy goodness that gives the powder a smooth and creamy texture.

Herbal Blend

Passionflower

Relieve restlessness

Improves sleep

500 mg

Passionflower is a gentle but effective plant for relaxation and improving sleep [1]. It is a great choice when you have trouble falling asleep due to an overactive mind and/or are waking regularly in the middle of the night.

Tart Cherry

Natural source of melatonin

Rich source of antioxidants

Tart cherry is a natural source of melatonin. It also increases the amount of tryptophan available [2], which is a precursor to melatonin. Melatonin is often referred to as our ‘sleep hormone’. The end result is that tart cherry has been found to increase the amount of time we sleep [3].

Magnesium

Maintain proper muscle function

Maintain bone health

300 mg

Magnesium is an important mineral involved in very many metabolic reactions in the body, including muscle function and bone health. We have included it in this formula, however, mostly for its well-known calming effect, both on the mind and body [4]. It can be a very supportive mineral for healthy sleep.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Can this formula replace my herbal supplements for sleep?

Yes, it contains therapeutic dosages and has been formulated with Naturopathic doctors. It is still always wise to follow up with a practitioner if needed.

What time of day should I take this formula?

This particular protein powder formula is best taken in the evening or closer to bedtime. It is intended as a light protein-rich snack and not meant to encourage large meals at bedtime. Taking protein close to bedtime can provide the body with important muscle building amino acids to help repair and rebuild during sleep. You can improve muscle mass while you snooze. (When combined with regular resistance training and a healthy balanced diet, of course!) Furthermore, the tryptophan content in the protein (a precursor for melatonin) can be helpful for sleep and protein in general can also help stabilize night-time blood sugar. Combined with the sleep supportive plants and superfoods, this unique formula is ideal for those who are struggling with sleep, or who tend to do late workouts and need nutritive support as well as a gentle transition towards relaxation and sleep.

Can this formula be taken if I’m on medication?

Yes, although is best taken 2 hours away from your medications

Can I take this formula for an extended period of time?

Yes, these are superfood nutrients and herbs that have been used traditionally for centuries and have a tonifying effect on the body. Having said that, it is always a good idea to take breaks on and off with any herbal protocols; they tend to be most effective that way.

Can I take this formula every day?

Yes, absolutely.

Will the magnesium in the formula cause digestive upset?

The magnesium in this formula is magnesium citrate that has been derived from sea water. Magnesium can cause some water retention in the bowels leading to looser stools. This is very much dose dependent and we are not all equally sensitive to this effect. If you notice a tendency toward looser stools you can decrease the amount you are taking or stop taking altogether, the bowels should reset very quickly.

I usually have a smoothie in the morning? What is the benefit of protein in the evening?

Taking protein close to bedtime can provide the body with important muscle building amino acids to help repair and rebuild during sleep. You can improve muscle mass while you snooze. (When combined with regular resistance training and a healthy balanced diet, of course!)

Are all of the ingredients organic?

Yes, they are all certified organic, including the organic vanilla flavour and monk fruit extract for that delicious flavour.

Can this perfect protein elevated powder be used for children?

This formula has therapeutic levels of herbs in it, so it is meant for people 12 years and up, unless advised by a practitioner. The Perfect Protein is different and can be used for kids of all ages, since it is 100% whole food. A child’s dosage is always divided based on their weight. The adult dosage is based on 150 lb person, so you would divide the dose depending on the child’s weight.

Can I cook with this formula?

Although it would make a lovely protein-rich substitute for flour in several types of recipes, we do not generally recommend heating this powder as you risk losing some of the phytonutrients in the herbs. If you are looking for a protein formula for baking, Perfect Protein is a great alternative.
