ATHLETES’ BODIES ARE THEIR TEMPLES
To elite athletes, their bodies are literally their temples and often their livelihood as well. Historically, there has been a certain level of concern amongst elite athletes and sports professionals about the cleanliness of the ingredients used in sports supplements. Parents have similar concerns about their children involved in sports, as do those that shop in health food stores because they seek better quality, cleaner nutritional products.

MULTI-SOURCED CLEAN PROTEIN
So, for our Organic Plant-Based Protein, we utilize a blend of certified organic proteins from multiple sources, featuring our U.S. grown organic peas to give it a great smooth and creamy texture. Then, we add other quality proteins such as organic garbanzo beans, organic navy beans, organic lentils and organic cranberry seed protein. One serving delivers 30g of complete protein providing a full profile of all the essential amino acids, 5.5g BCAAs and 5g glutamine, which are important to help reduce recovery time after exercise.

ORGANIC MUSCLE RECOVERY BLEND
Along with the higher amount of protein, BCAAs and the two sports certifications, the addition of the Organic Muscle Recovery Blend takes Organic Plant-Based protein to another level.

By including organic tart cherries, organic apples, organic turmeric, organic gogi berries and organic blueberries—these antioxidants are known to promote faster recovery. Because many sports participants compromise their immune systems due to intense training programs, we include 2 billion CFU of a specially selected, clinically studied probiotic that has been shown to support immune health during intensive workouts.

REFUEL & REPAIR
Intensive training and exercise breaks down muscle tissue and then the body repairs and rebuilds after exercise to make them stronger. Including protein in your refuel/recovery formula is extremely important to:

• stop muscle catabolism (breakdown)
• jump start muscle repair and muscle re-building
• support immune system health

Available in two delicious flavors,Vanilla and Chocolate, Organic Plant-Based Protein can also be used before your workout if you are not able to eat a full meal but need quality protein, and then ideally within one hour after workout or exercise. SPORT Organic Plant Based Protein—the cleanest protein available because you work hard and deserve the “best” to fuel your body!

Many athletes and other active lifestylers who are not vegan, sometimes prefer a whey protein. Whey is a milk protein prized for its amino acid profile and is often used in the sports arena. Until now, we were never able to source a whey protein that could fulfill Garden of Life’s “clean” standards, including verification by the Non-GMO Project and ultimately, testing that could hold up for certification by both NSF for Sport and Informed-Choice for Sport.

GRASS FED CAN BE MISLEADING
Although many whey protein products may call themselves “grass fed,” our research showed this wasn’t truly the case. Almost all dairy farms still used animal feed full of soy, corn and GMOs. Why? Typically, there are too many cows to feed year round on grass. Our search ultimately ended in Ireland with a coop of 4,800 generational family farmers whose herds feed only in green pastures. Our premium quality Certified Grass Fed Whey is not only free of hormones and antibiotics, but we are also very proud to have the ONLY Non-GMO Project Verified Whey. Due to these third-party certifications, Certified Grass Fed Whey is also certified NSF for Sport and Informed-Choice for Sport certified.

You can rest assured there are no athletic banned substances in this whey protein.

REFUEL & REPAIR
Certified Grass Fed Whey is designed to refuel and repair muscles. Intensive training and exercise breaks down muscle tissue and then the body repairs and rebuilds after exercise to make them stronger. One serving delivers 24g complete protein from whey protein isolate as the primary source with some milk protein added to provide some of the beneficial components found only in whole milk, such as immunoglobulins and beneficial growth factors. Our whey delivers all the essential amino acids, and provides 6g BCAA and 4g glutamine, important to help reduce recovery time by stopping musclebreakdown and promoting muscle repair and rebuilding. Lastly, we added 2 billion CFU of the clinically studied probiotic B.lactis BL-04 which has been shown to support immune health during intensive workouts. Available in delicious Vanilla and Chocolate, Certified Grass Fed Whey can be used before your workout meal if you want a fast-digesting, clean protein, and/or within one hour post workout for maximum benefit.
