Q: Can you help me with recommended daily intakes on the Thriving Protein range?
The product contains 5mg vitamin B6, which is 714% of the RDI for children and 313% of the RDI for adults.
RDI is the recommended daily intake. This is the levels of intake of essential nutrients considered, to be adequate to meet the known nutritional needs of practically all healthy people. Usual intake at or above this level has a low probability of inadequacy or deficiency of that vitamin or mineral. As such, RDI levels for vitamins are quite low, as we require only small amounts of vitamins to stop us form getting deficiency conditions. Higher amounts of the vitamins up to the upper level of intake will provide further benefit, and therapeutic levels of certain vitamins can be many times higher than the RDI’s.
The upper level of intake is the usual intake at or above this level, which has a low probability of inadequacy. The upper level of intake for vitamin B6, for example is 20mg for children 4-8 years. This means that although the amount of vitamin B6 for children is a lot higher than the RDI, it is only 1/4 of the upper level of intake. This product therefore provides an excellent dosage of vitamin B6 to provide sufficient levels not only to reduce the risk of inadequacy, but also to have a beneficial effect in the body, and it also has sufficient levels to have a benefit beyond stopping deficiency conditions. It is however well within safe limits as set by the national health and medicinal research council.
Q: What is Thaumatin?
Thaumatin is a 100% natural sweetener harvested from the western and central African rainforests, to which it is indigenous. Thaumatin is a natural protein physically extracted from the Katemfe Fruit (thaumatococcus daniellii). Thaumatin is extracted from the fruit of the plant using water extraction methods and is not subject to treatment by any additives, herbicides or pesticides and maintains a GMO, natural and allergy free status.
Thaumatin is very sweet and compared to sucrose by weight it is 2000 x sweeter – so a little goes a long way.
Q: Can I take Thriving Protein if I am pregnant/lacating?
We advise on all of our products to seek advice from your health care professional on taking our products if you are pregnant or lactating. We only say so as we believe that every pregnancy is different, taking a toll differently on each individual body in vitamin, mineral and energy levels.
By law, we are required to put a warning on the product if we ADD vitamins and minerals. Sounds crazy but it is true.
We invite you to research the product to ensure that you are not sensitive to any particular ingredients.
We can advise that our team member – Ricki Harrison – has taken all of our products during both her pregnancies and breastfeeding periods – and attributes her great pregnancies and energy levels to our products.
Q: ‘Failure to Thrive’ – Is there a more natural alternative to sustagen kidz?
We know that most Paed’s suggest sustagen kids – which unfortunate as its first ingredient as maltodexrin – GMO corn!
Not sure why they suggest this as it contains milk and soy – which are super high on the allergen list.
Thriving Protein is a vegan based protein, with no corn, gluten, soy, sugar, and definitely no GMO ingredients. It is a sprouted brown rice and sprouted pea protein base – which is easy on the digestive system and super high in useable protein. No whey base means its not hard on the liver, and there is no sugar, sweetened with thaumatin a plant based sweetener, so no sugar dump on the little bodies.
No additives, preservatives or synthetics in our products, just wholefood goodness – a much more natural alternative.
Q: I’ve been told your thriving protein has probiotics in it but I can’t see it on the ingredients?
Our Thriving Protein has a fermented blend which I have highlighted here as an example in our Thriving Protein – Cacao Choc 450g
The bio-fermentation process results in a 10,000 CFU (colony forming units) probiotic extract which is both dairy free and 100% shelf stable.
Ingredients: Certified Organic Sprouted Pea Protein Isolate, Certified Organic Cacao Powder, Certified Organic Whole Rice Milk Powder, Certified Organic Sprouted Whole Rice Protein Isolate, Flaxseed Meal, Aquamin (Lithothamnion calcareum) – Natural Calcium Source, Bio-Fermented Sprout Blend (Mung Beans, Brown Rice, Red Lentils, Chick Peas, Linseed, Alfalfa Seed, Millet, Quinoa, Filtered Water), Natural Cacao Extract, Chia Seed Meal, Apple Pectin, Certified Organic Wholefood Herbal Extract Blend (Certified Organic Curry, Guava, Lemon, Amla, Holy Basil & Annatto), Natural Sweetener (Thaumatin), High Vitamin D Mushroom Powder.
Q: What are the Phytic acid levels in our rice protein?
We use three grades of whole grain brown rice protein, the Phytic acid levels in these are…
Grade 1 – Ave. Phytic Acid 0.84%
Grade 2 – Ave. Phytic Acid 0.79%
Grade 3 – Ave. Phytic Acid 0.7%
MORE ABOUT PROTEIN
Protein is so important for growth, development and maintenance of every single action of your cells. The problem with most protein powders is that they are in forms that are not digested easily and can often upset the delicate balance within our gut.
Did you know?….Our bodies appetite for protein is so strong, we are driven to keep eating until our bodies get enough of the nutrient – even if it means consuming far more than we need! (University of Sydney, Study 2013)
Thriving protein is not only a source that can be digested properly by our bodies and therefore absorbed to it’s complete capacity, but it has the extra benefits of being a fermented food powder, so that our bodies can absorb minerals we would not normally be able to absorb.
“Thriving Protein enables the gut to heal, restore and increase the count of beneficial bacteria which again aids digestion and improves immunity’ -Alisha Lynch, registered Naturopath
The importance of Healthy Protein…
We all need Amino Acids the ‘building blocks’ that make up protein. Protein is not just for the body builders it is such an important part of the overall healthy function of our bodies.
Did you know ? Next to water, protein makes up the greatest portion of the bodies weight.
Thriving Protein is full of essential amino acids we all need no matter our age for endurance, balanced blood sugar, neurological health, building strong bones, feeling healthy, strong and vibrant.
Why have we added wholefoods ?
To make Thriving Protein so much more than a protein!
Thriving protein has added wholefood ingredients such as the wholefood herbal extract blend, chia seed meal, flax meal, bio-fermented sprout blend and High Vitamin D mushroom powder to allow Thriving Protein to move beyond a high quality protein powder and into the realms of something that also supports gut function, immunity, blood sugar levels, neurological health and stamina.
The base of Thriving Protein is certified organic, sprouted and fermented to ensure a live enzyme component which further serves gut health, to allow every single person to benefit and thrive on this product.
Did you know ?
Enzymes have many important functions in the body. They breakdown food, assist the immune system, carry out functions of the metabolism, and help the body detoxify harmful substances. Enzymes help the body unlock nutrients. Enzymes are in fact, vital to all life processes.
All health stems from the gut and those with impaired gut function and food intolerances will thrive on this formula given it is dairy, whey, gluten, corn, soy, nut and GMO Free.
