Benefits

INCREASES RESISTANCE TO STRESS

Stress is a part of life. We all experience it and sometimes, when it feels too big, or has been going on a little too long, we can start to feel the strain of it. Perfect Protein Elevated Adrenal Support is formulated to help you better cope with the wear and tear that chronic stress can cause on the body and mind.

SUPPORTS IMMUNE FUNCTION

The immune system is often the first to take a hit when under chronic stress. How often has a health issue acted up, or you caught a cold when under more stress than usual? This is why Perfect Protein Elevated Adrenal Support is formulated to include herbs and superfood that nourish and support immune activity.

OPTIMIZES ENERGY LEVELS

The combination of quinoa, brown rice and coconut provide a complete and balanced plant-based protein for our daily energy requirements. The addition of therapeutic herbs and superfoods offer a deeply nourishing and energizing support to our stress glands, nervous system and muscles, especially in times of chronic stress and fatigue.

HELPS BUILD AND REPAIR MUSCLE

Protein provides us with the building blocks to synthesize and repair body tissues, including muscles. Branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), which are found in good concentrations in this formula, are of particular importance for this. This plant-based protein powder is helpful if you are wanting to maintain and even build healthy muscle mass. Protein is especially important after exercise [1], to repair damaged muscle and help it grow back stronger. Research tells us that eating protein before and after exercise helps increase muscle recovery, promote muscle building and can even reduce muscle ache.

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

Ashwagandha

Helps increase energy and resistance to stress

2000 mg

Ashwagandha is a wonderful overall tonic to help boost energy reserves and promote health. It is a powerful adaptogen, which means that it helps one adapt to the challenges and demands of stress [1], supporting our vitality and energy. It is a wonderful support when you are feeling tired but wired.

Reishi

Helps increase energy and resistance to stress

1500 mg

Reishi has a powerful calming effect on both mind and body and so it is regarded as an ‘herb of spiritual potency’. As a whole body adaptogen, it is known to help support a healthy stress response. It is nourishing to the adrenals (our stress glands) as well as to the nervous system, thereby providing a calming but alert energy. Reishi is also well known for its immune system benefits.

Acerola Cherry

Supports immune function

75 mg

Vitamin C has long been recognized for its potential to support healthy immune function and it has been studied for its ability to prevent and treat respiratory and systemic infections [2]. Botanica’s food-based Vitamin C comes from Acerola cherry, a food high in vitamin C for optimal health.

Great vegan protein powder! Great protein powder with nice vanilla flavour, I liked it with my usual strawberry banana kale smoothie! I love that they use just a few natural ingredients!

This product tastes really good, I was pleasantly suprised adding it to my shakes as it doesn't add a odd taster or texture, I find the texture of this protein powder really good and then the added benefit of the extras in it is excellent.

Easy on stomach. Every protein hurt my stomach or caused bloating - this has a good flavour and fills me up.

Frequently asked questions

Can this formula replace some of my herbal supplements?

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

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

For the most part, yes, although it should be taken 2 hours away from your medications. Please check with your practitioner if you have any concerns.

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

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

Is there a recommended time to take this formula?

Earlier in the day rather than later would be best as Reishi mushroom can be a little stimulating.

Where is the Reishi mushroom sourced from?

USA (Pacific Northwest).

Is the Reishi mushroom from fruiting body or mycelium?

It is from the primordia – the mushroom sprout. It offers all of the vitality and therapeutic value of the mycelia as well as the constituents found in the mature fruit body.

Do I need to refrigerate my Perfect Proteins?

No need to refrigerate the Perfect Proteins. We actually wouldn't recommend it as it won't help extend its shelf life, and it will most likely add moisture to the powder, which can create clumps. You can store your proteins in a cool, dry place, away from heat sources.

What is organic monk fruit extract and why is it added?

Monk fruit is a sweet-tasting plant, also known as Luo Han Guo. Organic monk fruit extract enhances the flavour of our superfood beverages without the addition of sugar, stevia, or artificial flavours.

Why does Botanica Perfect Protein Elevated contain organic acacia gum, and is it difficult to digest?

We have made this recent addition to some of our formulas in order to improve the texture & blend-ability where needed. Our goal is always to deliver the best taste & texture experience to our customers, while ensuring that our products are Certified Organic and free of unwanted fillers. Organic acacia gum is known to be easy to digest and tolerated by even the most sensitive tummy.

Can Botanica Perfect Protein Elevated be used in baking or cooking?

Yes, Perfect Protein Elevated can be used in baking or cooking, for example, for the preparation of muffins, breads, cookies or bars. However, the product may lose some nutritional value when exposed to very high heat.
