Hammer Vegan Protein
By Steve Born
The finest, most delicious all-vegetable protein available!
Many of you, our valued clients, have been asking for a vegan-friendly protein, one that was not just devoid of dairy-derived protein, but soy protein as well. Because we want everything to be up to our exacting standards of quality, it usually takes quite a bit of time to get a new product's formula and taste just right. The wait was definitely worth it, however; Hammer Vegan Protein is another "home run" product.
Containing not one but five types of nutrient-dense, GMO-free, gluten-free, vegan-friendly protein, Hammer Vegan Protein is the perfect, delicious choice for anyone desiring a high-quality, dairy-free protein. Hammer Vegan Protein contains no soy, so it can be used with no issues by those who have soy intolerances or allergies. A powerhouse of quality nutrition - vitamins, minerals, RNA/ DNA, essential fatty acids, and more - Hammer Vegan Protein is a unique blend of alkaline protein sources, highly desirable for helping maintain overall health. To ensure efficient and complete digestion, a variety of digestive enzymes are also included in the formula.
Hammer Vegan Protein Sources
Pea Protein is an easily digested protein containing an excellent amino acid profile; it's a rich source of the amino acids leucine, isoleucine, valine (the three branched chain amino acids), lysine, arginine, and glutamine. An interesting characteristic of pea protein is that it assists in lowering levels of grehlin, an appetite-stimulating peptide. The result of pea protein consumption is an increased potential for feeling satiated, thus helping to prevent overeating.
Organic Brown Rice Protein is arguably the most hypoallergenic protein, which is especially important for anyone who suffers from chronic food allergies. When combined with pea protein, the two form a complete protein source, containing all essential amino acids and nonessential amino acids. Like pea protein, it is also very easy to digest and has the highest Biological Value (BV) of any vegetable protein source.
Organic Spirulina, a microscopic single-celled algae, is a complete protein source and has the highest concentration of protein by weight of any food. Considered by many to be THE superfood of superfoods, spriulina is vitamin- and mineral-dense, and is rich in enzymes and antioxidants such as superoxide dismutase. It's a potent source of chlorophyll (second only to chlorella) and essential fatty acids. Spirulina is also considered to be a blood-building nutrient, primarily due to its polypeptide content (called phycocyanin). Additionally, spirulina is believed to help maintain digestive system health by serving as a food/fuel source for beneficial intestinal flora.
Chlorella is another single-celled algae and, like spirulina, is a complete protein, loaded with chlorophyll and essential fatty acids. Chlorella is perhaps the most vitamin- and mineral-dense "green food" available, including a complete B vitamin profile. (Chlorella has more vitamin B12 by weight than liver!) Chlorella also contains naturally occurring RNA and DNA for assisting in cellular growth and repair, and is considered an "eye health" nutrient, courtesy of its plentiful amounts of betacarotene and lutein. Lastly, chlorella has gained a reputation as an excellent detoxifying agent; it is purported to have the ability to bind to heavy metals as well as other toxic substances in the bowels.
Alfalfa is an excellent source of amino acids and is an ideal food source of many vitamins and minerals including vitamin K, suggested to be highly beneficial for arterial health. Research suggests that vitamin K directs calcium to the bone, and keeps it there and out of the linings of arteries, thus aiding in the prevention of arterial calcification and arteriosclerosis. Alfalfa is also considered to be a helpful nutrient for lowering cholesterol levels.
