Benefits

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.

SUPPORTS HEALTHY WEIGHT

Protein helps make you feel full which can then prevent overeating and snacking - a huge advantage when working towards a healthy weight. Eating protein also creates a process in the body known as thermogenesis, which requires the body to expend more energy (calories) in order to digest food [2]. Consuming 25–30% of your total daily calories from protein has been shown to boost metabolism by up to 80–100 calories per day, compared with lower protein diets.

IMPROVES BRAIN FUNCTION AND LEARNING

We need protein to make enzymes, hormones and neurotransmitters, many of which are critical for cognitive function and learning. They are also highly involved in our response to stress [3]. The brain requires a steady supply of amino acids in order to keep concentration, focus and energy levels up. Studies show that when amino acid deprivation takes place, learning and coordination suffers, but once all necessary amino acids are reintroduced into the diet, learning and motor skills improve.

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.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can Botanica Perfect Protein be used in baking or cooking?

Yes, Perfect Protein 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.

What is monk fruit juice powder and why is it added?

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

Why does Botanica Perfect Protein 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.

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.

WHY DO THE PERFECT PROTEINS NO LONGER HAVE A SCOOP?

As a proud B-Corp business, we’ve made this decision in order to ensure a positive impact on the environment by using less plastic. The recommended serving sizes remain the same. We have simply changed the directions on the label, shifting from scoops to tablespoons or teaspoons depending on the formula.
