All of our products go through the following procedure during manufacture to ensure they are both safe and precisely what you see written on the label.
· Raw materials are only purchased from approved suppliers, who have passed a strict auditing
· All raw materials are tested for contaminants, heavy metals and harmful microorganisms.
· Raw materials are checked against product specifications before being tested.
· Products are visually inspected again during production.
· Raw materials are weighed and dispensed.
· Once blended, the products undergo Organoleptic testing to ensure they match our detailed
product specifications, before final approval.
No. Our Pea Protein is certified by Ecocert France, which, among other things, means it is water extracted and no Hexane, Acids or Alkalis are used in extraction.
Our powders are ‘nutrient dense’, meaning the amount of nutrition you get per calorie is high, which can be beneficial if you are cutting calories to lose weight.
A high protein diet can also reduce appetite and help you avoid snacking between meals, helping you achieve your weight loss goals.
We spent a long time formulating our products to taste great with just water. That said, they also taste amazing with various non-dairy milks such as oat and almond or other waters such as coconut.
Our personal favourite is about 50% water, 50% almond milk.
A word of caution though, choose quality non-dairy milks – some products contain thickeners and artificial sweeteners.
In formulating a protein blend there are two main concerns. One is delivering a complete range of amino acids and the other is blending to ensure good mixability and mouth feel.
We’ve used our specific combination of organic pea protein with brown rice and pumpkin seed proteins to get both of these just right.
Taste is very personal and sweetness especially so. If you find our protein blends a little too sweet, just add a little less powder or a little more liquid, or vice versa if you’d prefer it to be a bit sweeter.
Our usage guidelines are really just that. Experiment and make a shake that suits you.
Yes. We’ve formulated all our blends with organic pea protein with brown rice and pumpkin seed proteins to include a complete range of amino acids.
DigeZyme® is a complex of digestive enzymes combining Protease, Amylase, Lactase, Lipase and Cellulase.
Each enzyme breaks down a different macronutrient (Protease for proteins, Amylase for carbohydrates, Lipase for fats, Cellulase for plant fibres) meaning your body can absorb more of the goodness from our products.
DigeZyme® is derived from microbial sources and is gluten and GMO-free.
Because it’s packed full of healthy greens. We could have added an artificial colour to hide it, but why would we do that?!
Superblend and Peakblend are not recommended however due to the added vitamins.
Pregnant women are more at risk from fat soluble vitamins such as Vitamin A.
As Superblend contains 50% and Peakblend contains 17% of the RDA for Vitamin A, we are required to include this disclaimer, since it could be harmful if you over consume the product.
We would all like to have the time and energy to prepare nutritious meals from scratch every day to ensure we are getting all of the goodness we need.
The reality is, in today’s hectic world, few people have the time, resources and energy to find the best, freshest ingredients and ensure they are consuming a truly balanced diet.
This is truer still if you require additional protein and nutrients to supplement your training and build or repair muscles after workouts.
Our products are made from a variety of organic ingredients, such as pea protein (which makes up a significant proportion of our powders) and a number of the greens powders.
Unfortunately, the cost of organic certification remains prohibitive for some of our smaller scale suppliers, and some of our ingredients (such as AlgaVia®) simply aren’t available in a certified organic variety.
All our ingredients are natural, which means they can vary slightly from season to season and crop to crop.
We work hard to minimise this natural variation in flavouring. One example is our organic pea protein, which forms a large part of our protein base. To make the protein, the soaking time of the peas is different in summer and winter, and this can cause slight differences in taste and texture because the longer the soaking time, the greater the fermentation and protein hydrolysis.
Both products deliver very good quantities of protein per serving (20g for Superblend and 30g for Performance). The main difference is that Performance is geared more toward post-exercise recovery as it has curcumin to reduce inflammation and improve immunity.
Superblend has fruits and greens powders, plus 7g of fibre per serving, so it’s more for getting your daily requirements of nutrients and is not so focussed on physical activity.
The flavours also differ slightly in that Superblend comes in Chocolate Salted Caramel and Vanilla whilst Performance comes in Chocolate Peanut, Tiramisu and Vanilla.
Addition of digestive enzymes to pea and rice protein blends has been shown to increase time to peak concentrations of amino acids in the blood. Put simply this means the digestive enzymes help your body breakdown and absorb the protein quicker.
You can read more about digestive enzymes in our article here.
Protein overconsumption is not a concern if you are eating a balanced diet and using supplements as directed and not more.
You can read more about protein overconsumption in our article here.
Yes, this is no problem at all. It’s perfectly fine to heat or cook with any of our protein blends.
Nootropics are compounds that are proven to be cognition-enhancing, increasing capacities such as focus, alertness and memory.
The most obvious examples of nootropics we consume regularly without realising are B vitamins and caffeine.
We use vegetable capsules which are suitable for vegan diets. Ours are the highest grade two-piece Hydroxypropylmethyl cellulose (HPMC) capsules, completely formed from plant-based substances.
All of the ingredients in our Nootropic products are acceptable as a dietary supplement compound by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).
Our component ingredients are permitted under the guidelines for all major athletic bodies, including the WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency).
We design our products for long-term use, and only include ingredients which are safe, legal and backed by the most valid scientific research possible.
You probably enjoy the boost in focus a cup of coffee can provide, but may not like the other substances found in your morning pick-me-up, such as Putrescine and Dimethyl Disulfide.
It can also be challenging to understand just how much caffeine you’re getting in a cup of coffee as strengths vary significantly according to method of preparation and the type of bean used.
Boost simplifies the process by providing a constant 100mg of caffeine per serving (roughly equivalent to a single standard sized Americano) without any of the nasty chemicals found in low quality coffee.
Better still, Boost combines caffeine with L-Theanine for a less jittery sensation, and adds in other nootropics for cognitive enhancement.
Edge is caffeine free, meaning you won’t get the same initial sensation as you would with Boost. The effect is subtle and many describe it as simply feeling sharper and more energised during the day.
The effects of the ingredients in Edge compound when taken regularly, so with consistent use, you may begin seeing increased memory, energy and efficiency in cognitive tasks within 2-12 weeks.
BioPerine® is a patented extract obtained from black pepper fruits (Piper nigrum) standardized minimum to 95% Piperine.
It has been used as a bioavailability enhancer for over 20 years and, in general, has been found to increase absorption of nutrients by at least 30%.
It is GRAS (Generally Recognised as Safe) by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
We have included BioPerine® in all of our products so you can absorb the most nutrients from our powders and capsules, to enjoy the maximum benefits they provide.
Edge is a daily cognitive enhancer which will produce effects cumulatively as you take it over a period of several weeks. Boost has a more immediate and noticeable effect due to the caffeine and L-theanine, meaning it’s great for smaller windows of time in which you need that extra lift.
You can most certainly take them together as a ‘stack’ or take them on the same day at different times as you feel necessary. Just remember Edge is taken daily, Boost is as required.
In any case be sure not to exceed the maximum dose per day, per product and use them as part of a healthy, balanced diet and lifestyle.
