How does Re-Load Energy help me recover from exercise?
Re-Load Energy is a powerful blend of 6 nutrient-rich, organic ancient seeds and grains, organic pea starch, plant based digestive enzymes, omega 3’s as well as electrolytes. Taken within 30 mins of exercise it’s great for muscle cell hydration and replenishing muscle glycogen stores. Re-Load is also recommended for carbohydrate loading 2-3 days prior to any long or high intensity exercise.
How does Protein help my muscles recover from exercise?
During a workout, particularly one involving intense strength training, your muscles experience normal microscopic damage that breaks down muscle fibre. Taking Pure Native WPI or Organic Pea & Rice Protein following exercise ensures your muscles have the nutrients they need to rebuild these muscle fibres, speed recovery, improve muscle strength and build lean muscle mass.
What is the best time to take Protein to help my muscles recover from exercise?
The 30 minutes or so after an exercise session presents a window in which your muscles are primed for recovery. Consuming 3 rounded tablespoons (30g) of Pure Native WPI or Organic Pea & Rice Protein gives your body the nutrients it needs to repair and grow muscle fibres.
For best results combine with Pure Edge Re-Load to replace your carbohydrate stores and recover that lost energy.
What are amino acids and why are they important?
The amino acid profile of a protein powder is an important factor to consider.
There are two classifications of Amino acids – BCAA (Branch Chain Amino Acids) and EAA (Essential Amino Acids). Both are important.
BCAA’s act as nitrogen carriers, which assist recovery by stimulating the synthesis of glycogen in your muscle tissue and replenishing spent stores.
Essential Amino Acids perform various functions in the human body such as – strengthening the immune system by producing antibodies, increasing muscle mass, reducing body fat, reducing fatigue, aiding tissue repair.
Pure Native WPI and Organic Pea & Rice protein contain the full spectrum of amino acids, with 5g and 4.6g of branch chain amino acid’s respectively per serve.
What is Whey Isolate and what’s the difference between whey protein forms?
Not all protein powders are created equal. Whey can be processed to yield whey protein in three forms: whey isolate, whey concentrate, or whey hydrolysate. The difference between the whey protein forms is the protein quality and content. Whey isolates contain the higher percentage of pure protein and can be pure enough to be virtually lactose free.
Pure Native WPI contains >90% isolated protein content per serving and is extracted directly from hormone-free, fresh skimmed milk. Using a cold-temperature manufacturing process with micro-filtration, it allows the withdrawal of both the bacteria and residual fat, whilst still preserving the native character of the proteins. This absence of denaturation enables the proteins to fully maintain their nutritional qualities, such as an excellent amino acid profile. In addition the enzyme lactase is added, to bring lactose levels to <0.2% which improves digestibility and reduces to negligible levels any lactose intolerance.
I’m a vegetarian/vegan, is the Pure Edge range suitable for me?
Organic Pea & Rice protein, Superfood Energy & Re-Load Energy are all suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
What is Stevia?
Stevia is a natural sugar substitute derived from leaves of the stevia plant. The stevia we use is also certified organic.
Is Pure Edge Protein suitable for use during pregnancy + breastfeeding?
The answer is yes – but always check with your health professional prior to commencing new supplements. Our protein can assist women to meet their elevated protein requirements during these periods. You should use it as an addition to your existing daily diet for snacks in between meals.
Can children use the Pure Edge range?
Yes – it is suitable for children, particularly fussy eaters or those on restrictive diets. We recommend reducing the serve to suit your child’s requirement e.g. 1/4 – 1/2 the adult serve.
