Added to this is the BSc Superfood Complex, which contains the all natural goodness of Goji Berry, Mangosteen, Organic Acai Berry plus Green Tea Extract. Full of vitamins and minerals and naturally high in antioxidants, this superfood complex is designed to help boost and sustain health and vitality and protect your body from the stresses associated with exercise.
The recommended protein intake for adult individuals who are inactive or sedentary is 0.75g/kg/day (1). This means that if you are a 70kg office worker that does no exercise your daily protein intake would be 0.75g x 70kg = 52.5g per day. However, it is generally accepted that those involved in exercise or training have higher protein requirements. Those involved in strength and weight training are generally advised to consume around 1.6-1.7g/kg/day, while those involved in endurance training (e.g. triathlons) are generally advised to consume around 1.2-1.4g/kg/day. Therefore, if you were a 100kg bodybuilder, you would be advised to consume around 1.7g x 100kg = 170g protein per day. Likewise if you were a 65kg Triathlete you would be advised to consume 1.4g x 65kg = 91g protein per day.
Many people use plant-based protein sources to maintain their required dietary protein intake while reducing their calories. BSc’s Naturals Organic Plant Protein allows protein to be consumed without the saturated fats, carbohydrates and unnecessary calories that come hand in hand with many whole food protein sources. This can ultimately allow the individual to meet their protein requirements while maintaining a low calorie intake.
BSc’s Naturals Organic Plant Protein can be used to help you reach your weight loss goals and develop lean muscle. Frequent ingestion of high quality protein sources throughout the day is important if you want to maintain lean muscle mass (2). This is of obvious benefit to those wanting to stay lean and toned, but it is also useful for those looking to get in shape. Let’s remember that for anyone looking to shed those extra kilos, it’s fat that you want to lose. If you lose muscle mass during energy restriction your metabolic rate will drop, making it increasingly difficult to lose the desired body fat. Lean muscle tissue burns calories and helps ensure your metabolic rate remains high. So to reach your weight loss goals, you need to maintain an adequate protein intake while simultaneously restricting your calorie intake and exercising. BSc’s Naturals Organic Plant Protein is a great inclusion in any weight loss plan as it delivers nearly 20g of protein per serve, but is low in carbohydrates, low in fat and contains less than 100 calories.
BSc’s Naturals Organic Plant Protein is not just for those looking to lose weight. It is also great for people wanting to stay in shape, maintain their lean muscle mass and ensure a regular supply of quality protein throughout the day. It makes a perfect post workout solution to help promote healthy muscle development and aid recovery.
Protein is the key building block of our skin, hair and muscle cells and hence is a crucial nutrient to ensure optimal muscle recovery after training. Another thing to keep in mind when considering if you are getting enough of this vital nutrient is, protein helps to slow the digestive process and control blood glucose levels, which ultimately helps to keep you fuller for longer after eating it.
BSc’s Naturals Organic Plant Protein is formulated using ingredients that are naturally free from the 10 Common Food Allergens. These include Crustaceans, Gluten, Eggs, Fish, Milk, Peanuts, Soybeans, Tree nuts, Sesame seeds and Sulphites. It is made to the highest quality standards in GMP / HACCP certified manufacturing facilities and every batch is tested to ensure it contains no traces of gluten or nuts, prior to being released for sale. Whilst the product is made or packaged on the same equipment as other product that contains the allergen(s) Milk and Soy, the following steps are taken to reduce the risk of cross-contamination.
1. The machinery is cleaned after each batch, the specifics of the cleaning procedure is the equipment is disassembled.
2. Filters are removed and a full dry clean is performed before and after manufacturing.
3. This includes a flush of the pipework and packing equipment.
On top of this:
• The milk allergen is not stored in the same manufacturing room; it is stored in a designated area in the warehouse.
• No employees work in both areas (and therefore will not cause cross-contamination if for example the allergen is on their clothing).
• The allergens are in powdered form, but due to an in house designed technology these powders are therefore unlikely to get into the air ventilation system.
• As part of our Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) program the work force is trained in the prevention of contamination of products from allergens. All staff are trained every 6 months.
• The quality assurance about where ingredients come from is well documented.
We really do give a serious commitment to avoiding cross-contamination and confirm that our company strives diligently to minimise cross-contamination as far as is reasonably practicable.
So if you’re looking for a natural alternative to a sports recovery protein, want a vegan friendly protein, have multiple allergies to common allergens or just want a high protein shake, then this protein is suitable for you. It provides an easy way to get your daily protein requirements with added Superfoods for health and vitality. Use as a healthy in-between meal snack, or as a convenient post-workout protein hit to aid recovery and maintain lean muscle mass, or as part of a breakfast smoothie. You can also add a scoop to muffins and pancakes for an extra hit of protein – simply swap out some of the flour for protein powder.
