Springboard Organic Protein Powder is an excellent source of vegetarian rice and hemp protein combined with a comprehensive blend of greens, sprouted seeds and beans, and adaptogenic herbs that provides a nutritionally balanced meal replacement. This great tasting vanilla coconut flavored powder contains no added sugar and is excellent for supporting energy production and stamina as well as helping with muscle recovery and detoxification.
Organic Protein Powder provides the following benefits:
Protein is a critical macronutrient that should be consume regularly as part of a healthy diet. There are protein molecules in every cell, tissue and organ present in our bodies. They function as structural molecules for tissues such as collagen, hair, skin and muscles, act as enzymes, provide energy, are the building blocks of some hormones, neurotransmitters and red blood cells and make up the critical components of the immune system. Amino Acids are the building blocks of proteins. The human body can synthesize most amino acids necessary to build proteins except for the ten essential amino acids. It is important that one’s diet has adequate amounts of these essential amino acids. Organic Protein Powder provides an easily digestible vegetarian source of cholesterol free protein derived from rice, hemp and alfalfa that contains all ten essential amino acids.
Isoleucine, Leucine and Valine are three amino acids commonly referred to as Branch Chain Amino Acids or BCAAs. These 3 amino acids make up 40% of the daily requirement of the ten essential amino acids that must be obtained from one’s diet. BCAAs are primary used and broken down for energy in the muscles during physical exertion. BCAAs comprise around 35% of the amino acid composition of muscle tissue. The greater abundance of BCAAs present in the body will cause slower breakdown of muscle fibers therefore preventing muscle loss. These amino acids can stimulate protein synthesis and inhibit muscle breakdown which is essential for fast recovery after exercise. The unique combination of ingredients found in Organic Protein Powder offers an excellent source of protein that contains a significant amount of these BCAAs.
Springboard Organic Protein Powder contains a high L-Arginine content which is helpful for healthy blood flow by supporting vasodilation mechanisms in the body. Vascular endothelial cells produce nitric oxide (NO) from the precursor molecule L-Arginine. The release of NO from the vascular endothelial cells results in the relaxation of vascular tissue and the proper dilation of blood vessels. Organic Protein Powder also contains Beet Root powder which is an excellent source of vitamins and minerals as well as providing a source of organic nitrates. Dietary nitrate consumption derived from vegetables can be reduced or converted to nitric oxide (NO) in the body. Optimal NO levels in the body assist with vasodilation and regulates blood pressure which is highly beneficial for the cardiovascular system. Improving NO production also increases blood flow and oxygen utilization in the muscles which will provide elevated endurance levels.
Organic Protein Powder also provides an excellent source of vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients and essential fatty acids to go along with its complete protein blend. Greens and algae such as Alfalfa, Kale and Chlorella not only are a good source of certain amino acids but they are also rich in micronutrients including Vitamin C, Folate, Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, Carotenoids and Chlorophyll. The addition of sprouted seeds and beans provides a greater array of easily assimilated vitamins and minerals. Sprouting allows the seed to germinate for a short while which makes the micronutrients more bioavailable by reducing the phytic acid content in these foods. Legumes, grains, nuts and seeds contain various levels of phytic acid which binds to minerals and reduces their absorption into the body. Getting adequate amounts of highly bioavailable micronutrients is part of healthy diet. These micronutrients help support enzymatic activity, normal cellular growth, immune response, energy production, antioxidant protection, bone health, detoxification and numerous other physiological processes. Hemp Seeds, Chia Seeds and Sacha Inchi powder contain an array of vitamin and minerals to go along with their amino acid and essential fatty acid profile. These seeds are an outstanding source of Omega 3,6,9 and GLA essential fatty acids. The human body cannot synthesize the essential fatty acids Omega 3 and 6 and therefore they must be obtained from one’s diet. Fatty acids play a vital role in cell membrane integrity, neurological health, cognitive performance, inflammation regulation, as well as cardiovascular and vision health.
Adaptogenic herbs help regulate the body’s response to environmental stressors. Our ability to respond quickly to stressful or dangerous situations is part of the body’s fight or flight response which is necessary to deal with difficult challenges. Unfortunately modern day stressors on the body can come from a variety of places such as work, difficult home environment, intense exercises, inability to sleep, and school. Prolonged stress can weaken the body defenses, create inflammation, disrupt hormone balance, cause weight gain and increase feelings of fatigue. In order to support the body’s ability to adapt to various levels of stress one should consume a healthy diet that includes high amount amounts of vitamins, minerals, antioxidant phytonutrients as well as adaptogenic herbs. Organic Protein Powder contains adaptogenic herbs including Maca, Eleuthero Root and Cordyceps Mushrooms. These adaptogenic herbs support the adrenal gland which helps normalize the body allowing energy to be used more judiciously when in the face of environmental stressors that do not pose an immediate danger. The benefits of including Adaptogenic herbs in one’s diet include; increased energy, balanced adrenal hormone production, elevated mental and physical stamina, improved blood sugar metabolism and enhanced antioxidant protection.
Springboard Organic Protein Powder was designed to provide a comprehensive, great tasting, nutritionally dense protein powder made from all organic ingredients that will provide sustained energy and nourishment throughout the day.
