ORAC-Energy® Protein & Greens – Unflavored 454 gram
ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) Energy® Protein & Greens is the next generation of superfoods. Just one serving contains 20 grams of protein, the antioxidant power of over 24 servings of fruits and vegetables and a total ORAC score of over 40,000.* It contains certified organic pea protein and over 42 certified organic and pesticide free ingredients.
The essential amino acid profile of our pea protein is very close to that of the ideal protein. Other vegetarian sources such as rice or soy can lack in the percentage profile for certain essential amino acids. Pea protein is easily assimilated and has a sustained release transit time, which means it has excellent digestibility and keeps working. We have further enhanced this with the addition of the plant derived enzyme Aminogen®. Research shows Aminogen® to increase branched-chain amino acids by 250%, increase plasma amino acid levels over 100%, increase glutamine levels by 90%, increase arginine levels by 80%, increase nitrogen retention by 32%, promote lean body mass, aid in muscle recovery, and may provide less gas, bloating and constipation.*
Label changes from 12,000 ORAC to 40,000 ORAC. Initially ORAC values were based on 1 oxide radical. But now with the new improved industry standard that can test total ORAC values (five oxide radicals), we updated our label to reflect that versus our previous label. Our formula has not changed, but the testing protocol has been upgraded and our product demonstrated over 40,000 total ORAC which is what is now reflected in our updated label. Of course our product is still Lab Certified by Brunswick Labs whom are experts in ORAC testing.
