Superfood Power: Reishi, Cacao, Methyl B12, and BCAA’s

As you all may know, Brenden has a plant-based company called Planet Protein. He just recently launched a protein powder that is full of superfoods, so we wanted to share a blog post of what superfoods are included and why! These natural supplements have healing powers that aid in proper body function and overall wellness.

Reishi

  • Boosts your immune system.
  • Increases the activity of the natural killer cells that fight infections and cancer.
  • Reduces the abnormal blood vessel formations that could lead to cancerous growths.
  • Prevents neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s disease, and even cancer.
  • Fights fatigue and depression.

Cacao

  • Natural mood-booster.
  • Contains theobromine which has been found to stop coughing better than commercial drugs.
  • Contains phenethylamine which releases endorphins and opium-like neurochemicals.
  • Keeps hormone function regular and help with mood swings.
  • Boosts heart health by reducing the risk of stroke and helps to improve blood circulation.
  • Reduces signs of aging by protecting cells from oxidation.
  • Loads of magnesium.
  • Used as a more natural alternative to Aspirin.

Methyl B12

  • Needed for proper body function.
  • Boosts the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins through your energy producing pathways.
  • Aids in the control of anemia and helps in the formation of red blood cells.
  • Helps with mental function and operation.
  • Aids in depression.
  • For people who eat a plant-based diet, it is essential to supplement vitamin Methyl B12 because most of the time it occurs in meat products and certain fortified foods.

BCAA’s

  • Branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) are a group of three essential amino acids (leucine, isoleucine and valine) that are needed for proper body function. Your body cannot create them.
  • Boost muscle growth and enhances exercise.
  • Aid in weight stability and reduced fatigue.
  • Regulate blood sugar levels by keeping up liver and muscle sugar stores and stimulates cells to take in sugar from your blood.
  • Reduce complications such as liver disease.
  • Better sleep quality.

We as a company understand how wellness and preventative medicine should play a huge role in life!! The choice is yours to create a well-rounded healthy lifestyle for yourself, and we hope that you choose a natural/preventative solution.
