- Craft Process
Our herbal and superfood blend has been carefully chosen to complement our protein powder and offer extra adrenal support benefits. These targeted herbs and superfoods are included in therapeutic and meaningful amounts to add to your daily protein supplement, no fairy dusting!
We use the mushroom mycelium and the primordia. Sourced from the Pacific Northwest of the USA and grown in a protected environment, our mushrooms are organically grown and tested for herbicides, pesticides, and heavy metals to ensure its purity.
Our sustainably traded, organically-grown quinoa comes from the Andes mountains in Bolivia.
- It is first peeled to remove the top saponin layer (a slightly toxic layer), then washed, dried, and powdered.
- This produces a beautiful quinoa powder with no bitterness that dissolves easily in water.
- No chemicals or heat are used in the process.
Our certified organic brown rice is sourced from exclusive crops across Asia, where it naturally grows. It is never exposed to pesticides or pesticide residue, meeting Prop 65 standards – strict non-contamination standards for California.
- The protein is carefully derived from bran + germ + endosperm layers.
- It is treated with organic plant-based enzymes, then washed and sieved several times, and filtered until the protein content rises (80% – 90% whole grain brown rice protein).
- The protein extraction is hexane-free, and low temperatures are used, which also prevents off flavors.
Our organic coconut is sourced from the South Pacific, from areas such as Sri Lanka, Vietnam, and the Philippines. We work with small family-based sustainable farms that are 50-75 years of age, and well cared for.
The coconuts are harvested in 3 traditional ways:
- Some Coconuts naturally fall to the ground;
- Tree climbers are used from the specialized labour community for plucking;
- Bamboo poles are used with a knife attached to cut down the coconut.
The coconuts are then pressed for milk, and the milk is further dehydrated into a powder.
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.
HELP 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.
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.
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 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.
Helps increase energy and resistance to stress
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 , supporting our vitality and energy. It is a wonderful support when you are feeling tired but wired.
Helps us better cope with stress • Helps increase energy
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.
Helps with immune function • Antioxidant for good health
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 . Botanica’s food-based Vitamin C comes from Acerola cherry, a superfood rich in powerful antioxidants for optimal health.
