Protein is essential for living organisms. It gives us energy, helps our bodies recover, and keeps our tummies satisfied. So how do you know if you’re getting enough?

Our NOURISHING PROTEIN contains all 9 essential amino acids, digestive enzymes to help metabolism and fibre to help you feel full longer.

It’s vegan, alkalising, low carb and low GI. Yes, it’s a slimming protein and a healthy supplement in one.

Here’s how to know if you need more protein.


Constant food cravings and wanting snacks often between meals may be the consequence of a high-carb/sugar and low-protein diet. Including protein at each meal evens out blood sugar highs and lows.


Some of the first signs you’re not eating enough protein are thining hair and peeling skin and nails.


Short bursts of mental energy, followed by the 'fog' may be related to fluctuating blood sugar and lack of protein.


Replace processed foods and lots of carbs and sugars with whole foods including fruit, veggies, wholegrains, lentils, beans, nuts, seeds, organic chicken and fish. For a snack on the run or meal replacement our all-plant NOURISHING PROTEIN is super nutrient dense and delicious. It contains acai for healthy free radical elimination, iron, magnesium, zinc and importantly all 9 essential amino acids.
