It comes in a delicious range of flavors, making it irresistibly easy for everyone to hit their protein goal!
Proteins are polymers of amino acids linked via peptide bonds. They play a vital role in the function and regulation of the body’s tissues and organs, including muscle protein synthesis. The Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) of protein for healthy individuals is 0.8g/kg/day. For optimal training adaptations, it has become increasingly evident that protein intake should be increased to at least 1.4–1.6 g/kg/day. In an effort to meet these intakes, supplementation is beneficial ¹
Studies show that whey and pea protein produce similar outcomes in measurements of body composition, muscle thickness, force production, performance, and strength ² . However, plant-based proteins are becoming more fast-growing and innovative in the food industry due to their sustainable origins, economical costs, and health benefits ³.
Blessed contains all of the essential amino acids and contains an unparalleled formulation of the finest 100% sustainable raw ingredients to bless your body by supporting common nutrient deficiencies and improving digestion. The unique golden pea protein isolate blend is gluten, soy, and dairy-free, making it suitable for all dietary requirements. Not to mention, the tubs are made using recycled materials.
Blessed is wholesome protein goodness, for you and the environment!
PROMOTES MUSCLE GROWTH AND ENERGY PRODUCTION
Blessed contains essential and branched-chain amino acids which are metabolized directly into muscle tissue and are effective for skeletal-muscle protein synthesis during and after exercise. They help to replenish decreased energy levels and assist with growth and repair of lean muscle tissue ² . Recent studies suggest that the intake of the BCAA’s reduces the rating of perceived exertion (RPE). Over time, reduced RPE helps sustain higher workloads, leading to increased time to exhaustion ⁴ . There are 20 amino acids, 9 of which must be obtained through diet:
Methionine assists in energy production and fat metabolism. Lysine stimulates muscle building. Tryptophan enhances mood and pain tolerance. Threonine plays an important role in heart health, strong bones, and muscles. Phenylalanine reduces RPE, and pain tolerance and enhances mood. Histidine assists in offsetting lactic acid buildup. Leucine plays a vital role in protein synthesis and energy production. Isoleucine enhances endurance, energy and muscle recovery. Valine is important for muscular growth, energy, and recovery.
Psyllium Seed Powder has been added due to its potential benefits in regularity and healthier lipid levels. Psyllium comes from the seeds of the herb Plantago ovata and is a well-known fiber supplement used to improve digestion and treat constipation. It also helps lower LDL cholesterol levels and lipid markers for heart disease ⁵.
ASSIST MICRONUTRIENT REQUIREMENTS
Iron is an essential element that the body requires for the synthesis of oxygen transport proteins, in particular hemoglobin and myoglobin. It assists in the formation of enzymes involved in electron transfer, oxidation reductions and DNA synthesis. Iron deficiency can result in anemia and neurodegenerative diseases.
On average, adults require around 1 mg - 1.5 mg of iron to be absorbed by the body each day. However, the body can only absorb a fraction of iron in foods. Statistics show that approximately one-third of the world’s population is iron deficient and one in eight people do not consume enough to meet their needs. This signifies the importance of iron intake and supplementation ⁶.
