We are not just another vegan protein powder, we are a little extra compared with your standard shake and here is some of the reasons why:
The world we live in is busy, especially for women. As a woman, especially today, we want to accomplish many things – our role as a daughter, mother, wife, friend, colleague. We want to look good, feel good, and fit in a side hustle or two. But this desire to have it all means our health is, at times, a lower priority. Unfortunately, this also means we are not taking care of ourselves the way we need to – shifts in diet and emotional stress can alter the balance of good and bad gut bacteria that live inside our gut. This gastrointestinal imbalance can bring on a myriad of health issues which can affect your overall wellbeing, including depleted energy levels, mood, and mental health.
As we get older our collagen levels also start to naturally decline, and our bodies start to need more protein, including certain vitamins and minerals, all of which are vital in keeping our gut, bones, muscles, hair and skin healthy.
Collagen is the major component of connective tissues that makes up tendons, ligaments, skin and muscles – the building block of your body, your temple & the most abundant protein in your body.
Although a nutritionally balanced diet, generous amounts of exercise and self-care can help to improve our health, or even reverse some of the aging process, the reality is that we are time poor. As Oprah says “We can have it all, just not all at once”. And as a result, we are skipping meals, eating less healthy, and therefore the quality of our daily nutrition can be compromised.
At Glow Proteins we believe we have found a solution. We have scientifically formulated a convenient, organic protein-based, nutritional shake that aids in replacing and replenishing what your body needs to continue to rock life as the super-powered woman you already are, even when you are time poor and on the go. Jam-packed with an array of vegan protein sources, collagen boosting ingredients, antioxidants and superfoods, we are proud to present you an entirely natural product which has been formulated for women, by women.
Do you often rely on quick and healthy food options but then look closer at the ingredients list and start to question your choices?
Being short on time should not affect the quality or nutrition of our diets! This why we’ve created Glow Proteins, a product based on real food ingredients.
Glow Proteins Natural Collagen Powder is a 100% plant-based blend, made with only the most natural ingredients – check our ingredients list yourself. We don’t use fillers, additives and fake stuff! We are also dairy free, soy free, and low in sugar and fat.
Yes, 5 proteins & the reason we did this was to draw upon the unique nutritional benefits available from each plant-protein source. For example, pumpkin seed is low GI and a source of zinc which is essential for collagen production in plant-based (vegan) diets as zinc activates the proteins responsible for producing collagen.
Collagen is abundant in the body and acts as the vital glue holding our bodies together. We know Collagen production slows down as we age (it never stops!) so by nourishing your body regularly with targeted nutrition to support collagen production, the age-related decline may not be as notable or severe. Glow Proteins Natural Collagen Booster has been formulated with vegan friendly ingredients that support collagen production.
For example, our blend of 5 proteins provides us with key amino acids, Lysine and Arginine, both of which are used in forming collagen and protecting collagen from enzymatic breakdown. Whilst Pumpkin seed and Lucuma have been selected for their beta-carotene content, which the body converts to Vitamin A. Vitamin A helps stimulate the production of collagen.
A busy lifestyle means we are not always taking care of our bodies the way we need to. As a result, shifts in diet and emotional stress can alter the balance of beneficial and harmful bacteria living inside our gut. These differences can bring on a myriad of health issues, which are not only gastrointestinal in nature (e.g. bloating), but can also affect your overall wellbeing, including depleted energy levels, mood, and mental health.
Every serve of Glow Proteins Natural Collagen Booster provides our gut with 1 Billion Probiotics (or “good” bacteria) sourced from various bacterial strains, to replenish imbalances we’ve created to our gut’s health.
When we started our journey we wanted to achieve two things. Firstly, helping busy women get the maximum benefit from a single product. And secondly, making sure that the ingredients we used were not synthetic.
If you have a look at some of the hair growth supplements in the market Silica (or silicon) is one of the main ingredients (mostly in synthetic form). That is because Silica plays such a vital role in our body especially when it comes to hair growth. When we are young, our body has abundant levels of silica which is why children normally have beautiful silky hair, soft skin and perfect nails. As we age however, we also lose silica.
Silica seems to assist with hair growth in two ways. Firstly, it helps to achieve hormonal balance. An imbalance in the female sex hormones is one of the biggest single causal factors for hair loss and the thinning of hair. Secondly, because silica bonds with minerals within the body, it takes many nutrients to the peripherals of the body, namely the hair, skin and nails, and thus ensures that the hair follicles are supplied with all the vital minerals necessary for hair growth and vitality.
Silica also has a myriad of other benefits which we will talk about in our future blogs. This is definitely a mineral that is beyond amazing, and the best part is that Glow Proteins source our silica from natural sources – bamboo extract.
If you are already taking a protein supplement why not switch to Glow Proteins to benefit from our premium blend of ingredients?
Antioxidants help neutralise harmful free radicals, ingredients which can damage our cells and cause chronic disease. Did you know that without vitamin C, collagen cannot be synthesised in the body?
On the go and totally zen? Why not?! Ashwagandha is one of the most important herbs in Ayurveda, a form of alternative medicine based on Indian principles of natural healing. Studies have shown that ashwagandha may help reduce cortisol levels (our “stress hormone”) & in turn can assist with managing anxiety disorders.
Maca root on the other hand is the latest “sex superfood” as it has been said to increase libido (sex drive) which can also reduce our stress levels while helping you in getting a restful night’s sleep. This is backed up by research and as they say: Sex isn’t just fun, it’s also healthy Hahha jks
