Spinach and almonds are both sources of antioxidants. The role of antioxidants is to reduce levels of oxidative stress in the body which can damage our cells and, their action can promote overall health (1).
The dark leafy nature of spinach means that it is packed with antioxidant carotenoids, beta carotene, lutein and zeaxanthin, these phytochemicals are thought to promote eye health (2).
Spinach is also a source of folate which plays an important role in DNA synthesis and with both male and female reproductive health (3,4).
Oats contain the powerful fibre beta glucan (5) which has been shown to have a beneficial role in improving blood sugar control & cardiovascular health.
Unlike some of the “earthier” tasting blends out there, we developed a recipe that was not only favourable for its performance abilities, but also taste.
We have sourced the finest ingredients and have mixed high-quality, plant-based protein from multiple sources to provide not only a varied amino acid profile, but also equally as importantly an exceptional-tasting blend.
This blend of protein sources contains all of the 9 ‘essential’ amino acids which cannot be synthesised by the body, these ensure the body can repair and grow muscle and provide sustained energy throughout the day.Learn more about our Signature blends
