With so many protein powders on the market, it can be hard to know where to turn. That’s why I created this Paleo Detox Protein with your needs in mind. Paleo Detox Protein is intended for everyday use or as a meal replacement when following a specific detoxification protocol.
The detoxification process in the liver actually requires an abundance of nutrients including amino acids from protein, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants from plants. Here is a great visual of this process and nutrient requirements from the Institute for Functional Medicine. With all of the toxins we are exposed to on a daily basis, daily nutrient needs may be higher than what is possible to obtain through food alone. This is why I often recommend supplementing your diet with Paleo Detox Protein because it provides the essential nutrients to support a healthy detox.
I especially like this product because it includes a great source of protein, fiber and detox support supplements, in a vegan, gluten free and sugar free formula. There really aren’t many protein powders that are packed with so many nutrients.
Key components include:
Pea protein powder providing 16 grams of low-allergen protein per serving.
Specific amino acids to create complete protein and support detoxification – glycine, l-lysine, l-threonine, l-cysteine, taurine, methionine.
Essential vitamins and minerals to complement your meal or smoothie.
Phytonutrients (plant nutrients) including antioxidants from a blend of spinach, beets, carrots, pomegranates and grapes.
Fiber from glucomannan and cellulose to support digestion, the microbiome and blood sugar balance. A 2016 study showed that increased dietary fiber had the ability to positively alter detoxification processes in the body.
L-carnitine to support fat metabolism and reduce oxidative stress.
Quercetin, green tea extract and glutathione for powerful antioxidant support. Glutathione helps to protect cells from the damage caused by toxins, EGCG from green tea has been shown to enhance glutathione and prevent against cancer and quercetin is anti-inflammatory providing a variety of therapeutic applications.
Milk thistle for liver protection.
N Acetyl Cysteine is a precursor to glutathione, your body’s master antioxidant
Choline, an essential B vitamin that is often overlooked in complete supplements and is important for cellular structure and communication between cells.
Inositol for blood sugar balance and disease prevention.
Paleo Detox Protein is free of gluten, dairy and lactose, GMOs and is Paleo diet compliant. With a tasty berry-vanilla flavor, it is stevia sweetened and doesn’t contain any added sugar. Mix with water or blend with your favorite organic fruits and vegetables.
