Protein is necessary for your body’s healthy development and maintenance on a daily basis. It keeps the cogs and creative wheels turning in your brain and repairs your muscles and tissue after stress or vigorous workouts and sports. It’s also especially important when recovering from stress or illness and is an essential source of energy. Similarly, protein is essential for kids’ nutrition and development, with research linking healthy protein consumption with improved concentration, school performance, and physical energy. So, you can see why getting enough protein is a pretty big deal for everyone’s health and wellness. Without it, things go downhill fast, including an increase in memory fog, irritability, fatigue, sore muscles, cravings, and impulsive eating. If this sounds familiar, then protein powder may be a welcome addition to your diet and routine.
- Satiety: protein, especially when combined with fiber and healthy fats, can help the body feel full and satisfied, providing the energy needed to accomplish the things most important to you. Plus, when your body feels full, you are less likely to over eat between or during meals and cravings for refined fats, sugars, and carbohydrates lessen.
- Post-workout recovery: as mentioned, protein is an essential macronutrient and it is responsible for repairing and building new tissue and muscle. Thus, after working out, it is important to give your body the fuel it needs to repair and strengthen muscles. Timing your post-workout protein is also helpful in reducing soreness and can help ease the recovery process.
- Convenience: Life can get hectic and we know it’s important for you to have healthy, protein and nutrient dense foods handy for the times when you simply can’t whip up a complete meal from scratch. It also helps when those grab-and-go items are delicious without the additives that aren’t. Orgain high protein shakes and tasty plant-based protein bars let you and your family travel light and stick to your health goals without needing a clone or a time machine to get it all done. Simply stash a few bars and shakes in your bag, car, or desk drawer for those frazzled days to stay on track.
- Complete nutrition: Orgain nutritional powders and shakes are a complete nutrition package. With sprouted grains and pea protein, even the plant-based protein powders have complete proteins and the amino acids required to absorb and process protein. This means whether you are an omnivore, vegan, or vegetarian, Orgain’s nutrition powders and shakes are a great meal replacement option and an excellent addition to your diet for healthy weight management.
Smooth, creamy, and delicious: Many protein powders, especially plant-based proteins, are gritty and lacking in flavorful appeal. This is especially disappointing when you are trying to improve your health. We believe healthy foods should be delicious foods, which is why all of our protein powders are creamy, smooth, and delicious. We’ve got nine flavors to choose from, ranging from peanut butter to Iced Matcha Latte to creamy chocolate fudge, proving healthy doesn’t have to mean unappealing.
