Lion’s Mane mushroom
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.
HELPS SUPPORT COGNITIVE FUNCTION
Is it a daily struggle to keep your focus and concentration on important tasks? Do you get that afternoon brain ‘blah’ when everything takes twice as long to get done? Perfect Protein Elevated Brain Booster is specifically formulated to support mental focus and stamina. It can be a wonderful aide for students when actively learning new things, as well as when we simply need that extra mental boost to get through our day.
REDUCES MENTAL FATIGUE
Despite all our best efforts to have balance in our lives, there are times when we need to push through difficult times. And with this often comes more mental fatigue and strain. Lion’s Mane and Rhodiola, two of the key ingredients in Perfect Protein Elevated Brain Booster are great for nourishing and supporting the nervous system and brain. Rhodiola in particular has been shown to reduce mental fatigue and improve performance on work-related tasks by 20% .
HELPS COPE WITH STRESS
What’s the biggest cause of mental strain? You guessed it, stress!
So a brain boosting formula definitely needs to include some stress support. Rhodiola is a stimulating herb that helps us to better cope with the demands of stress in our lives, helping us feel less tired and overwhelmed. And the B vitamins have been studied for their protective effect from stress, with people experiencing less self-perceived stress and significantly lower confusion and dejected mood .
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.

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.
The smart mushroom • Helps balance immune function
Lion’s Mane has received its common name from its appearance as it has some resemblance to a lion’s mane and is often correlated with the look of the human brain and nervous system. It is an edible medicinal mushroom that has been referred to as the ‘smart mushroom’ for its ability to enhance cognitive function and mood . In fact, Lion’s Mane has come to be considered a super star when it comes to brain and nervous system health.
