OUR GREEN BUILDING BLOCKS
Water lentils have a higher percent of Essential Amino Acids (EAA) and Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA) than any other plant-based protein. The protein quality that you receive from water lentils is better than any other plant-based protein.
The digestibility of our water lentils also far exceeds that of a pea. Water lentils have a digestibility of 93% while both soy and pea have a lower digestibility. The bioavailability and digestibility of our plant protein are unparalleled. Our protein also comes from the whole plant, not an isolate, so the processing is minimal compared to other isolated proteins.
We provide you with a high-quality protein to help build, repair and maintain muscle.
Clean Gut Health
Water lentils contain dietary fiber. Dietary fiber is essential for digestion and gut health. There is a specific blend of insoluble and soluble fiber to keep your digestion healthy, and water lentils have it!
Fiber is linked to reducing the risk of many chronic illnesses like heart disease through lowering LDL cholesterol levels. Fiber can also combat insulin sensitivity and stabilize blood sugar levels while also aiding in weight loss.
Water lentils have the perfect blend of soluble and insoluble fiber to support healthy digestion.
Traditionally, Vitamin B12 has only been found in animal sources or from synthetic, unnatural supplements. A recent discovery, however, has proven that water lentils are a source of Vitamin B12!
Water lentils are now the only source of plant-based Vitamin B12 containing the two bioactive forms of the vitamin.
Lutein & Zeaxanthin
Water lentils contain lutein and zeaxanthin, two carotenoids commonly found in the eye. However, by supplementing your diet with lutein and zeaxanthin, you can improve those carotenoid levels and help your eyes! They also are useful for filtering out the blue light from TV, laptops and cell phones.
