We need to start by saying that we love this protein blend. We're not vegan, but love that our Peruvian Power Protein is an all-natural, organic source of protein that has so many nutritional benefits from the ingredients that aren't readily available elsewhere – sacha inchi, maca, vanilla bean, cacao, mesquite, lucuma, and more. It's full of dense superfoods and is deliciously satiating.
What makes this blend unique is the rare superfoods and nutritional value. When you look at other vegan proteins on the market, they're full of words like 'earth' and 'soy', which kind of makes you feel like you're buying a bag of freshly composted dirt. Opening a bag of Peruvian Power Protein feels like the exact opposite – it's like you've hit the jackpot with your little bag of gold and healthy substances. Here are some of the reasons why.
Sacha Inchi is a Peruvian seed naturally ranging in the Amazon rainforest and along the east slope of the Andes for over 3,000 years. Sacha Inchi is a completely natural high-protein source that is high in brain-boosting omega 3's.
Maca is a Peruvian root grown in the Andean region of Peru. Bare Blends' Certified Organic Maca Powder is a 100% certified Organic and comes from a grower association of the Pumpush people in Junin, Peru
Maca produces a natural high, as it is a proven stimulant. It's also an adaptogen thought to have numerous libido enhancing properties.
The premium Australian Certified Organic raw cacao powder used in our natural whey protein blends is of the heirloom variety, Criollo, grown in Peru. Cacao is rich in antioxidants and is a proven mood enhancer.
Vanilla bean is known for its mood-enhancing properties and warm inviting aroma. It also assists in regulating metabolism, nervous system function and heart function. It is also a natural aphrodisiac.
MESQUITE & LACUMA
Delicious real flavours, these two ingredients also help with stomach digestion and regulating cardiovascular health.
LO HAN GUO (MONK FRUIT EXTRACT)
Monk fruit extract provides just the right amount of sweetness, tasting similar to brown sugar, and having anti-diabetic, anti-carcinogenic, anti-bacterial, antioxidant, and anti-allergic effects.
As well as all of this, our Peruvian Power Protein is soy free, gluten free, lactose free and certified organic. This blend is perfectly suitable for vegans, people with common food intolerances, and health-conscious people. And for the rest of us, it's just a super fun blend that tastes delicious! If you like the flavour of raw cacao, maca and peanut butter, you will love this blend! Sacha inchi has a distinctive taste similar to peanuts. This blend does have a strong flavour due to the maca and cacao especially, however the added vanilla beans and cinnamon creates a delicious, rounded finishing taste.
The nutrient-dense superfoods in this blend were valued by the Incas for building muscle, improving fertility, providing energy and restoring the body to optimal health. It is ideal for endurance, strength building, and immunity boosting.
'Not only for vegans, this protein rich superfood product is perfect for those wishing to increase energy and stamina, those with hormonal issues and people who tend to be whey-protein sensitive. The health benefits associated with maca supplementation are phenomenal, this maca blend is a must try.'
