Protein is an important building block in the body. For instance, the Dutch governmental guidelines advice a daily protein intake of 50 grams, at a daily reference consumption of 2000 kcal per day.
Protein is required to keep the body healthy. For one, there are 9 essential amino acids that the body cannot make and therefore must come from food. Protein is also needed to maintain muscle mass. Additionally, the protein requirements are higher in times of growth. Children require sufficient protein for the normal growth and development of the skeletal system. In athletes, protein contributes to a quick recovery after training and maintenance of muscle mass.
However, some people don't want to use an animal source of protein or are unable to tolerate it. Whey protein isolate, for example, is not always tolerated well by those with a sensitivity to milk proteins or sugars. This can cause physical discomfort, such as flatulence.
Pea protein is a vegetable protein and is naturally free of allergens. Pea protein isolate is well digested and absorbed by the gut. These properties make pea protein a suitable protein source for everyone, even when other protein isolates cause physical discomfort.
NuZest Clean Lean Protein Natural is a vegetable protein powder made from European golden peas (Pisum sativum). Golden peas are naturally rich in protein and contain a complete profile of essential amino acids.
The peas are grown in France and are processed in a state-of-the-art Belgian facility into pea protein isolate with the use of environmental-friendly, water-based extraction methods. No organic solvents, hexane and denaturing heat treatments are used.
In NuZest Clean Lean Protein Natural anti-nutrients that reduce protein absorption and can cause inflammation are removed. For example lectins, phytates and trypsin inhibitors.
The facility does not process food products that are common sources of allergens, such as shellfish, peanuts, nuts, milk, and gluten, making Clean Lean Protein Natural completely allergen-free.
NuZest Clean Lean Protein Natural is also free of added carbohydrates and sugars, making it a pure protein supplement that contains at least 90% protein.
NuZest Clean Lean Protein is also available in vanilla or chocolate flavour.
NuZest Clean Lean Protein Natural comes in a container of 500 g pea protein isolate, sufficient for 20 portions.
The recommended portion size is 2 scoops, 25 grams in total. Adjust the serving size and frequency to your needs.
