Vegessential All in One
If you’re working out hard in the gym, you’re not only using up nutrients as you train but also losing nutrients through sweat. On top of that, you’re also causing tissue damage and increasing the formation of free radicals that can cause muscle oxidation—i.e., breakdown! Having a great diet loaded with protein and lots of fresh vegetables and fruits can help, but you’ll need to eat a whole lot to really make an impact. Renowned naturopath Dr. Mikhael Adams formulated Progressive’s Vegessential as an all-in-one daily foundation for your nutritional needs.
Progressive’s Vegessential All in One is the perfect daily solution for those of you who consistently work out and are serious about your nutrition. Just one serving provides over 100 plant-based ingredients, including a spectrum of both micro- and macronutrients and 100 percent of the recommended daily value for 13 vitamins and minerals your body needs. And you don’t have to worry about getting things you don’t want in your diet either. This green supplement is clean! There are no added sugars or artificial flavours, colours, or sweeteners, and it’s dairy-, cholesterol-, and trans fat-free. Plus, you’ll get 27 grams of pure, plant-based protein from yellow pea protein, sprouted brown rice protein, and organic hemp seed protein for a full spectrum of essential amino acids to help aid in proper muscle function and tissue formation. In addition to this high amount of protein, this formula is also designed with a botanical extract of Zea mays that has been added to help balance and support the kidneys, the main organ required to help eliminate by-products associated with protein consumption.
Vegessentials provides the equivalent of six to eight servings of vegetables, compared to the three servings you get with other leading greens products. High amounts of fruits and vegetables help increase your antioxidant status in the body. Research has shown that increasing antioxidant status can help expedite recovery, reduce the onset of disease, and support healthy immune function. In fact, Vegessentials has an ORAC rating of 5,000 units from sources such as green tea, grape seeds, lutein, and resveratrol. Each serving also delivers 23 different extracts from a variety of vegetables, including green foods such as spinach and wheatgrass, sea vegetables such as kelp and spirulina, land vegetables such as beet root and pumpkin seed, and cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli and kale.
Vegessentials is also fortified with support nutrients designed to assist with every aspect of digestion from ingestion to elimination. There’s 7 grams of healthy fibre from natural sources such as inulin, apple pectin, and oat bran. It also contains a blend of digestive aids including the natural digestive aids pineapple and papaya to enhance your body’s natural production of enzymes, which supports the digestion and intestinal absorption of macronutrients in your diet, including proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. It even supports liver function by providing milk thistle and dl-alpha lipoic acid.
Lastly, this formulation also provides 2 grams of omega-3 from plant oil sources such as borage, pumpkin, safflower, and primrose. Omega-3 oils are an important source of healthy fats that can support healthy skin, help control the inflammatory process, and help balance hormones in the body.
This superb convenient one-a-day plant-based protein smoothie tastes great too. Choose from three flavours—Natural Vanilla, Natural Berry, or Natural Chocolate—or if you want to use it in your own smoothie blends, choose unflavoured. Just one serving per day, and you’ll get all the nutrients you need to help speed recovery, support muscle building, detoxify the body, and stay healthy and strong!
