Colostrum and Sunwarrior ProteinColostrum is the "immune milk" produced by all mammals for only the first few hours before and after birth. Supercharged with 97 immune factors and 87 growth factors, colostrum is nature's "first food". It's adaptogenic properties enhance rejuvination and regeneration while strengthening the immune system, allowing your body to thrive under any circumstances. With potent anti-aging benefits, and broad spectrum probiotics in their whole food forms - Colostrum delivers youth, health, and vitality! This colostrum is from organically raised cows and only harvested after the newborn calves get their share. This is true 6 hour colostrum, verified by a 3rd party. Colostrum is an amazing material that, like many other things in nature, reflects the evolutionary development of a unique composition that will serve the needs of the offspring for which it is intended. The most unique of the colostrums from mammalian species occurs in bovines, where transfer of biological substances across the placenta to the developing fetus does not occur and everything required for the development of a healthy, productive offspring is provided in the colostrum. As such, bovine colostrum provides a specialized resource that offers the broadest possible spectrum of biologically active substances that can promote the development of a sound body mass, assure effective and efficient metabolism and support the activation and maintenance of a fully functional immune system capable of combating potential insults from microorganisms and other deleterious sources. Bovine colostrum is also compatible with almost any species and can readily convey its full benefits to humans by routine dietary supplementation without any significant adverse effects. *THESE STATEMENTS HAVE NOT BEEN EVALUATED BY THE FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION.

Many bodybuilding supplements and protein powders are loaded with chemical sweeteners
If you take a look at the ingredients in bodybuilding supplements and protein powders at most health food stores, you'll find that they contain an array of questionable ingredients, such as aspartame, saccharin, fructose, and artificial colors. I've always found it interesting to note how unhealthy many of these bodybuilding products really are. Rather than being made with natural ingredients, and sweetened with items like stevia, they are sweetened with chemicals and made with ingredients that are certainly less than healthful. And why? Because bodybuilders continue to purchase these supplements. In other words, the supplement manufacturers are simply meeting the demands of bodybuilding consumers.
But one question remains:
why are so many bodybuilders so unconcerned with their health? It's something that's been frequently observed in the bodybuilding community: people consuming any products, no matter how dangerous to their health, in order to build more lean body mass and look better for competitions and photo opportunities. This is the case, of course, with the use of illegal steroids for enhancing muscle mass. It's a dangerous trend -- not only in terms of steroids, but also with protein supplements that contain toxic ingredients such as aspartame.
Let's take a closer look
at the problem with aspartame, and see how it affects the human body. In my opinion, aspartame should have been banned a long time ago due to its toxicity and potential for nerve damage. When aspartame is consumed, it breaks down into two chemical compounds in the human body: formic acid and formaldehyde. Formic acid is an irritant -- the same chemical produced by fire ants-- and doesn't belong in the bloodstream. But the bigger problem here is formaldehyde. Formaldehyde, as you may remember from high school biology class, is a preservative. Now, this doesn't mean that by consuming aspartame you are going to stop aging. Rather, it means that you are going to suffer the side effects from ingesting this preservative chemical.
is listed as an environmental toxin by the EPA, and when ingested in the human body, it causes widespread nerve damage: damage to the optic nerve, brain cells, and the nerve cells that control body movement. That's why aspartame has been so strongly linked to migraine headaches, muscle tremors, vision problems, and mental confusion. These are characteristics that most bodybuilders should hope to avoid. After all, how can you appear healthy if your nervous system is being destroyed by a toxic ingredient you are consuming on a regular basis?
The only sweetening ingredient
that I recommend in a bodybuilding supplement is stevia. Stevia is derived from an herb -- the sweetleaf herb -- that's native to Central and South America. Stevia does not affect blood sugar levels, it has virtually no calories, and there are absolutely no toxicities associated with its use. It has been used safely around the world for literally thousands of years, and is, in fact the alternative sweetener of choice in diet soft drinks in countries such as Japan. However, in the United States, stevia has been oppressed by the FDA, which has denied its use in food and beverage products, most likely to protect the profits of aspartame manufacturers. Because, after all, if stevia were legalized, aspartame sales would plummet, and as we know, the FDA is far more interested in protecting the profits of private industry rather than public health.

SunWarrior Protein Wins Editor's Choice Award for Raw, Vegan, Brown Rice Protein Concentrate (NaturalNews)
If you're into a plant-based diet and all the health and performance benefits that come from eating plants, it's difficult to find a high-quality source of supplemental protein. Until now, traditional sources have been soy protein, yellow pea protein, hemp seed protein, brown rice protein and mesquite flour. But each of these has problems. Isolated soy protein, for example, is a cheap, low-end protein "filler" protein that's often extracted with chemical solvents (and can even be made from genetically-modified soybeans!). This is why it's the No. 1 protein used in all those cheap, low-end protein bars found at the grocery store.
Hemp protein, on the other hand,
is nutritionally very rich, but it often has an annoyingly high "grit" factor, and the taste is not very pleasing to many consumers (I still eat lots of hemp protein, though, due to its outstanding nutritional profile). Brown rice protein also seems to have a high grit factor, and it never seemed to offer sufficient assimilation to provide all the protein I needed in my diet. That's why, until now, I had never found a source of brown rice protein that I really liked.
All that changed when I received a phone
call from Brent Hauver at SunWarrior (www.SunWarrior.com). He had gotten my phone number from David Wolfe at Sunfood Nutrition (www.SunFood.com), who was convinced that I needed to know about this new "silky smooth" brown rice protein that was about to be launched. He said it was both raw and vegan, and that it trounced every other plant-based protein product on the market today in terms of assimilation and performance. Strong claims, yes. But could they be true?
In this article, you'll hear my full review
of this breakthrough SunWarrior brown rice protein concentrate. I'll reveal why I've come to the conclusion almost everyone can benefit from this supplemental protein (including women, children and senior citizens), and how it helped me break through a strength plateau in my own training at the gym. Better yet, you'll also learn about an exclusive, time-limited discount offered only to NaturalNews readers. Feel free to just skip right to the discount code, below, if you're ready to try SunWarrior protein for yourself. (Note: I earn nothing from the sales of this product. This is a 100% independent, non-commercial product review.)
My introduction to SunWarrior Protein
When Brent enthusiastically described SunWarrior protein to me, I was naturally skeptical. I've got a lot of products showing up at my door every day, and some are described with some fairly outrageous claims, but knowing the integrity of David Wolfe and Sunfood, I decided to go visit Brent Hauver in person and find out for myself if this protein product lived up to its claims. I got that chance at the Expo West gathering in Anaheim, California, where over 3,000 natural living product vendors get together to show off their latest products to buyers like Whole Foods, Vitacost, and individual health food chains from around the world.
On the first morning, just after the exposition doors opened, I darted over to the SunWarrior booth and introduced myself to Brent Hauver, the founder of SunWarrior. Brent is really tall, with a wide smile and a level of enthusiasm for natural living that's ridiculously contagious. Within minutes we were talking about global transformation through the pursuit of a plant-based diet, and why animal-based protein products are being increasingly replaced with plant-based protein supplements by discerning consumers.
Brent tells me his new SunWarrior protein product is raw, GMO-free, vegan, fermented brown rice protein, and that what's in the canister is 85% pure protein! He also says it's silky smooth, without any of the grit usually associated with brown rice protein products. This is accomplished, Brent explains, through a high-tech microfiltration process conducted at very low temperatures (room temperature, essentially), which keeps the product raw. No chemical solvents whatsoever are used in the processing of this brown rice protein concentrate. I interrupted Brent to remind him that I still hadn't tasted the product to see for myself what it was like. He chuckled, reached under the booth table, pulled out a 2.2 lb. container of SunWarrior "Natural" Protein, and with a magician's flourish, whipped back a curtain, revealing a Vita-Mix blender. (Score! A Vita-Mix on the road is worth its weight in gold, I've discovered...) I scooped up three or four heaping spoons of SunWarrior protein, chucked it into the Vita-Mix, then poured in a container of unsweetened hemp milk I'd scored the night before. After a 15-second blend, I poured the resulting brown rice protein milk into a cup and chugged it.
Wow... Brent was right. No grit! This stuff was not only exquisitely delicious, it was also silky smooth. As smooth as the best whey protein powders, yet it was made from brown rice! This made it easy to swallow, and the taste was phenomenal: Just a hint of natural sweetness, with absolutely none of the sharp taste overtones you might find in hemp protein or soy protein. I instantly knew I could blend this into any smoothie -- fruit, chocolate, tropical, whatever! -- and the taste would fit right in.
On top of that, this product had no chemical sweeteners, no refined sugars, no dairy, no soy, no genetically-modified ingredients... this looked like the plant-based protein product I was searching for!
Why a professional bodybuilder switched to SunWarrior Protein
I won't go into all the rest of the technical details of what Brent described to me: How the product is fermented, for example, to make the amino acids far more bioavailable, and why this greatly enhances absorption, making it superior to any other plant-based protein source he'd ever seen. I agreed this was a big benefit, because as a person who works out at the gym quite a bit, I'm usually disappointed with plant-based protein products. They usually don't provide the absorption I'm looking for, and they leave me feeling hungry and under-nourished.
That's when superstar bodybuilder Wade McNutt stopped by the booth. He's a champion bodybuilder with a freakishly ripped physique. I slapped a microphone on Wade and pressed record on my portable audio recorder as he talked about why whey protein caused him bloating and gas, but after finding SunWarrior protein, his waist slimmed down, all the bloating went away, and he was getting some crazy-good results at the gym... all from SunWarrior brown rice protein! (You can check out Wade McNutt's "natural bodybuilding" site, if you're curious, at: www.WadeBodySystems.com)
With all this enthusiasm about the SunWarrior product, I told Brent I would give it the Health Ranger test: I would take it home, work out with it for 2-3 months as my primary protein source and find out what it did for me personally. So I bought several large canisters from Brent, stacked them into the back of my van, and drove back to Tucson after the show, ready to start the test.
Who Needs Supplemental Protein
You don't have to be working out in the gym, of course, to benefit from supplemental protein. A lot of natural health consumers are eating and drinking so many plants that they don't get the level of protein they would need for optimum performance. This is even true of women; especially those who are pregnant.
High-quality protein, I've discovered, is absolutely crucial for maintaining a healthy heart and healthy digestive system. Often, people suffering from Crohn's disease or irritable bowel syndrome see their symptoms completely disappear when they shift to a high-assimilation plant-based protein product. I've even heard of asthma and arthritis vanishing! (Because animal products cause inflammation, of course...)
Getting off of animal products and onto a plant-based diet, in fact, is likely the single most beneficial decision you can make in your own diet. And usually, when people do that, they're concerned about getting enough protein because they aren't eating meat anymore. Well guess what? SunWarrior Protein solves that. (Plus, you can eat quinoa, kale juice, spinach juice, nuts, seeds and lots of other plant-based protein sources.) Also, as Dr. Gabriel Cousens points out, cooking food destroys about half its protein, so eating RAW plants will also boost your protein intake substantially!
Children especially need high-quality plant-based proteins, and this SunWarrior product is the perfect way to deliver that in a tasty, sweet superfood smoothie that has absolutely no grit and no chemical additives. If you've got children and you want to feed them right, I encourage you to experiment with adding SunWarrior protein to their smoothies. Just blend it up with lots of fruits and superfoods, then sweeten with stevia, agave nectar or even raw honey! It's delicious!! (I also recommend Sunfood's raw cacao powder in those smoothies to turn them into raw chocolate powerhouse smoothies!
For anyone who exercises
-- even just walking a few times a week -- I can't say enough about this: SunWarrior Protein could very well be the product that helps you break through that performance plateau and get to the next level of strength, endurance, fitness or just pure cosmetic beauty in your own life.
People who look fit, lean and athletic are sexy! But it's only truly sexy from the inside out if they're doing it naturally, without chemicals, additives or junk protein products. That's why SunWarrior makes so much sense: It helps build an athletic physique while staying 100% natural, raw and plant-based!
By the way, I do want to interject here and say that becoming athletic also requires lots of exercise. You cannot eat your way to an athletic body. Food is crucial, but exercise is still required, no matter what. Lots of it. Fortunately, SunWarrior is exactly the kind of product that gives you the strength, endurance and adaptability that helps you pursue and enjoy far more exercise than what you might have done in the past; and that's what will give you the results you're looking for! (Weight loss, slim waist, radiant skin, better posture, ripped abs, whatever...)
How SunWarrior performs in the gym
Everybody who has seen my fitness pictures knows I'm not a super bulky muscle guy (www.HealthRanger.org/stats.html). At over six feet tall, I just don't have the proportions to look like a Wade McNutt, but I do pack a lot of strength and endurance into my much smaller muscles. In fact, I've steadily built strength over the last eight years to the point where I'm much stronger at age 38 than I was at age 30, and I'm doing things now with Capoeira, Pilates and martial arts that I could never do in my 20's (because I was eating a junk food diet then, of course).
But the big question was now: Would SunWarrior protein support significant strength and endurance gains in my own training routine?
To conduct this test, I stopped eating fish. As NaturalNews readers know, I used to eat fish from time to time as a last resort animal-based protein source. I always felt I needed the fish protein to avoid feeling hungry all the time, and even though I disliked sacrificing any living creature to feed myself, I reasoned that fish were the simplest life forms providing such protein, and thus any bad karma would be minimized. (Funny how we rationalize things like that, huh?)
Well, I'm happy to announce that SunWarrior protein worked to keep me off all animal products, period! After a few days, it became obvious to me that SunWarrior protein was providing the same high-density protein assimilation as fish meat, and I no longer needed to eat fish at all.
From that day, I have been on a 100% vegan diet! It's exciting, because as an "O" blood type, and someone who used to be prediabetic, I had always felt the need to consume a lot of protein, but suddenly, something truly magical was happening with SunWarrior Protein that completely shifted my biology and got me off fish protein for life!
But how about the training in the gym? Would SunWarrior make me weak and thin, or strong and functional?
Getting fit, lean and trim with SunWarrior Protein
It's not difficult to notice that a lot of raw foodists don't have much muscle mass. Although I completely respect the Ghandi approach to minimizing calories (and extending life), I personally do not choose to live my life in a state of hunger. I like to eat a lot of food, and I enjoy the physical freedom and athletic expression that comes from being able to do handstands, poi spinning, weight lifting and other similar functions that require significant muscle strength.
So I enjoy being strong, lean and muscular, regardless of whether it's a bit of a diversion from the usual raw foodie physique. Because I'm so serious about strength gains, I track the results of all my workouts. I know exactly how much weight I can push for how many reps, for each muscle group. Since I've kept logs for the past three years, this gave me an ideal way to test the effectiveness of SunWarrior Protein.
After blending SunWarrior Protein into my smoothies twice each day (for a week or so), I hit the gym and began the workouts. The first workout was really just a way to wake up the muscles and get them to adapt with more strength over time, so I wasn't really concerned about the strength performance on the first workout. Rather, I was more interested in how my muscles would adapt to the workout when I was on the SunWarrior Protein product!
It didn't take long for that answer to become clear. After two weeks, nearly every one of my strength exercises was UP by anywhere from 5% - 10%. One leg exercise went up by 20%! (Leg press.)
If these gains seems small, consider that I'm not some newbie to the gym. I've been working out for years, and sometimes I'll go six months with no gains whatsoever for a particular muscle group. To see a 10% strength gain in two weeks is phenomenal for a person who's already training on a regular basis.
After a few more weeks of tracking the results of over 25 exercises, the results were clear: I was gaining significant strength on this raw, vegan protein, even without the fish protein in my diet. SunWarrior was working!
And yet, it didn't make me bloated or gassy. It didn't make my muscles look bulky, either; it just help me keep them looking lean and functional -- even while I was getting stronger!
This made me an instant convert to the SunWarrior brown rice protein. I was astonished at the performance gains on this product, and knowing that it was 100% GMO-free, chemical free, sweetener free and made entirely from raw plants drove this point home even further: SunWarrior is the best plant-based protein concentrate product available today, anywhere in the world!
David Wolfe feels the same way about it. He provided this quote for this article:
"For years I have been looking for a pure, natural, superfood, protein source that tastes great, is easy to assimilate, burns fat and tones muscle. That's when I discovered Sun Warrior. At 85% protein, this is the best meal replacement strategy ever. When used with nutrient dense superfoods like my Maca Extreme, Goji Berries, Cacao Powder and Yacon Syrup you can pack more nutrition into a single smoothie than many people get in a month. From moms on the go to extreme athletes, Sun Warrior provides a quick and delicious way to get the energy and nutrition your body needs to make every day the best day ever!" - David Wolfe, founder www.sunfood.com, author of The Sunfood Diet Success System, Eating For Beauty, Amazing Grace, Naked Chocolate So now, David Wolfe, Wade McNutt and myself have all joined "Team SunWarrior," which is a group of natural living warriors who are using this product to fuel our muscles as we pursue our work in the world.
It also turns out that Brent Hauver, the founder of SunWarrior, is turning on all kinds of MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) athletes to this product, and in doing so, he's getting an increasing number of those guys off the animal products and onto plant-based diets that are fine-tuned for athletic performance! Is that exciting, or what?
I love the fact that elite athletes are now starting to ditch the animal products and discover the seemingly superhuman performance attributes of eating superfoods, raw foods, and plant-based protein concentrates. This could really change the tide for mainstream America and show all those kids who look up to MMA athletes that eating McDonald's hamburgers and drinking Pepsi is NOT going to make you fit and healthy! Brent Hauver at SunWarrior is leading the charge to introduce this plant-based protein to the very top athletes in the MMA industry. I personally believe, without a doubt, that the top athletes who switch to superfoods, raw foods and plant-based diets will greatly out-perform those who don't.
I think that a plant-based diet may turn out to be the single most important factor in determining an athlete's strength, endurance, adaptability and resiliency. In fact, be sure to read my $10,000 athletic challenge, where I've personally challenged Big Pharma to produce a single person on their prescription drugs who can beat me in a physical contest. You can read that $10,000 challenge here: http://www.naturalnews.com/023476.html
What can SunWarrior protein do for you?
Regardless of what SunWarrior protein does for anybody else, the real question is: What can it do for you?
Based on my considerable research and experience in this area, here are the main benefits of SunWarrior brown rice protein:
Builds functional strength without unnecessary bulk caused by the hormones found in meat products.
Helps create a lean, athletic body with a thin waist (no gas, no bloating, no putrified meat products sitting in your gut...)
Accelerates strength gains due to the outstanding assimilation of amino acids (probably due to the fermentation process).
Tastes truly fantastic: Can be used in ANY smoothie!
Does not contain ANY garbage additives: No chemical sweeteners, no chemical solvents, no refined sugars, no dairy, no soy, no animal byproducts, nothing artificial!
Seems to be remarkably alkaline for a protein product. Animal-based proteins are highly acidic and have a huge insulin load over time, but this SunWarrior Protein has never made me acidic, even when consumed in large quantities!
Allows you to follow more of a high-protein diet without turning to animal products. Please remember to also drink lots of fresh vegetable juices, eat fruits, superfoods, nuts and seeds, too.
Is available at an almost ridiculously low price, considering the quality of what's in it (and the time-limited coupon code, see below).
Introducing Sun Warrior Protein!
A message from David Wolfe on a new source of Raw, Vegan, Super Protein:
"Sunfood Nutrition has always worked to bring the most nutrient-dense raw foods and superfoods to our customers. When our goal is to have the Best Health Ever, we should strive to have everything we eat be the Best Food Ever. Whether it's the easiest to digest or whether it assists with the absorption of nutrients from other foods, Sunfood Nutrition will always offer foods that contribute 100% to our customers' health goals.
That's why I'm proud to bring you Sun Warrior Protein, a breakthrough advancement of a nutrient-dense, traditional food. Brown rice is used by billions of people the world over to build strength, maintain abundant energy levels, and achieve their higher life goals. Sun Warrior Protein focuses the nutrient profile of brown rice, turning a nutrient-dense food into a highly bio-available, almost pure protein superfood.
We know that many types of protein powder such as whey or soy can become less effective over time, and may even prove harmful when taken continuously. Many people have asked me about a simple product that they can take every day, which will also help them build muscle mass and feel great. That is when we discovered raw brown rice protein. Sun Warrior Protein combines the hypoallergenic reputation of rice with highly available, concentrated nutrition. Sun Warrior Protein is composed of 85% pure protein, and has been shown to have the highest conversion rate of amino acids to protein among all protein powders currently available. Sun Warrior Protein has been designed specifically for athletes, body builders, and all those looking for a raw vegan protein which is easy to digest and tastes great."
Aloha! David Wolfe
Mike Mahler on Sun Warrior Protein Mike is well known as one of the leading experts on effective kettlebell training for size, strength, fat loss and conditioning.
Finally a protein powder that is organic, tastes great, and will not cause nausea and have you running to the bathroom with the runs!
Over the last couple years, Mike has always passed along sound nutritional advice that has positively affected my performance. Recently, I mentioned that I was having trouble finding a protein powder I was happy with. Mike recommended Sun Warrior Protein and I have been very satisfied with the results. It's a high quality supplement with a good amino acid profile that doesn't produce many of the negative side effects (ex. bloating) associated with most protein powders. --Ken Blackburn Director of Operations for the IKFF www.extremeathletictraining.com
It is not often that I get excited about protein powder. Most protein powders taste terrible and are loaded with unhealthy chemical ingredients. Sure I have used a few protein powders that are decent but none that actually motivated me to want to sell them on my website until recently. Not too long ago the guys at Sunwarrior were nice enough to send me a few bottles of their rice protein to test drive. Honestly I was expecting another terrible tasting rice protein like all of the other options that are on the marketplace. To my pleasant surprise I was actually shocked with how great the vanilla and chocolate flavors are. Unlike most protein powders both the vanilla and chocolate flavors taste good in water. This is the true test of a protein powder as you can make just about any protein powder taste great by mixing it with tons of fruits in a blender. However, if it tastes good in just water then you know you have a winner. That said the protein powder in water is not enough for everyone so make sure you give some of the protein shake and protein bar recipes a shot when you get the protein powder: Protein Shake and Protein Bar Recipes
Here is a video review of the protein by Mike Adams of www.naturalnews.com
For more information on the Sunwarrior rice protein and why you should use it, read the below interview with one of the founders of Sunwarrior Brent Hauver:
MM: What inspired you to get into the protein powder business and why did you choose rice protein as your focus?
BH: Great question- I was a raw food Vegan for over 17 years, but ran into some problems. I lost weight, and at 6' 4" was down to 145 lbs. It was like my ability to digest food was gone and I was wasting away. So in desperation I started searching for something to help regain my strength and muscle. I found it in Sunwarrior protein. After 11 months on Sunwarrior protein, I gained 50 lbs, most of it all lean muscle mass. My energy levels went through the roof and started breaking records on my lifts. What I needed was a Protein Superfood that could help me nourish and heal my body and Sunwarrior went above and beyond my expectations.
MM: Why should people choose the Sunwarrior Rice protein over other protein powders on the market?
BH: What makes Sunwarrior protein so different than other proteins is that we use a unique natural holistic bio-fermentation process that combines the sprouted endosperm and the bran from Raw Sprouted Whole Grain Brown Rice that results in a massive increase in Lysine and essential and non-essential amino acids. This creates a perfectly balanced amino acid profile that is easy to digest and assimilate. Also, have you ever heard of Gamma Oryzanol? MM: Yes however most of my visitors probably have not. What are the benefits of Gamma Oryzanol? BH: The Japanese have been using and studying this natural compound for years. Gamma Oryzanol is found in different parts of rice, in particular the Rice germ and Rice Bran. What the Japanese have found is that Gamma Oryzanol can increase muscle mass, is a potent anti-oxidant and is very effective in healing ulcers and other things. Well, guess what Because Sun Warrior Protein is made from Bio-Fermented Raw Sprouted Whole Grain Brown Rice (with the bran and germ) is has Gamma Oryzanol in it. MM: Sounds great and are there any other reasons why people should choose the Sunwarrior protein over others? BH: Yes, one thing to remember is that if you take whey or Soy protein for a long time, you will eventually develop an allergy to them. Most body builders know this and will switch proteins every 5 to 6 months. The nice thing about Sunwarrior is that it is Hypoallergenic meaning that it does not develop allergies.
MM: So this means that unlike soy, whey, and egg protein powders people will not develop allergies to the Sunwarrior rice protein?
BH: Exactly. MM: Many argue that vegetarian protein sources are inferior to animal protein sources. What would you say to them? BH: You know Mike that is another good question- In fact Most vegetable and rice proteins on the market today use a chemical non-holistic process that produces an unnatural hard to digest protein lacking in essential and non essential amino acids- especially lysine. We use old world process of combining the sprouted endosperm and the bran from Raw Sprouted Whole Grain Brown Rice. This unique process creates the first complete hypoallergenic Protein which is made up of all 9 essential amino acids and other non-essential amino acids in a perfectly balanced amino acid profile. In fact our comparison by an independent lab show that we are equal to or higher in some cases to the amino acid profile of Egg, Whey and Beef. Sunwarrior is created with a Low Temperature natural Enzyme process that does not use any chemicals or acid hydrolysis (like most proteins do).
MM: What has been the feedback thus far with the protein powder?
BH: Incredible In fact I will include some of the responses here:
I'm almost out and have almost become addicted to this stuff. I put it in room tempt water and it tastes sooo good! I'm in good health but by golly this has kicked up my energy and sense of well-being. It is truly all you say it is. I've used protein powders for years but never liked the bases used, especially the soy. And I'm not talking the taste of it but the nutritional value. So I was so pleased to see the rice base and amazed at how much better it makes me feel and the wonderful taste is a real bonus! THANK YOU for a wonderful product. Addictedly yours :)Anna
I just love the vegan protein powder that I received. I'm not a vegan or even a vegetarian, as I do eat some meat and a little raw dairy. I do usually have at least one vegan meal a day. I can't tolerate a lot of sugar and eat meat because I really do better with protein. This protein powder is great. I've only had it for two days, so haven't had a chance to experiment much yet. I put some in my vita-mix with chocolate almond milk, coconut milk and stevia. It was luscious, like a milk shake. Thank you so much for this incredible product. Bonnie Franciosi
MM: The price for your protein powder is close to $50.00 for 2lbs. Many of the popular protein powders on the market now are sold for around $35.00 for 2lbs. Why should the consumer be willing to pay nearly 50% more for the sun warrior protein powder?
BH: Yes I can understand this. Let me make some cases for Sunwarrior. Many people think that protein is protein. But of course we know that this is not true. You can buy low end hydrolyzed (chemically processed) protein for cheap that is low quality, and has a low assimilation rate and causes intestinal disturbances and tastes like garbage. Or you can buy a natural process high quality protein that has a high absorption rate and easy to digest, has high efficacy and health value and tastes great. Your choice- You get what you pay for. Also, In my opinion there are too many body builders and athletes that take so much protein and yet they do not assimilate the protein that they have taken in. After it is all about digestion and assimilation. Because Sunwarrior is predigested with biofermentation and enzymes it has a 98 to 99% digestion efficiency. That means that you do not need to take as much to get the results you need. Third, Sunwarrior is a functional food or in other words a food that is nutritious and tastes good but also has awesome healing properties. Here are some more reasons to use sunwarrior:
1. Sunwarrior is Naturally Rich in Vitamins and Minerals, Sun Warrior Protein contains high amounts of antioxidants Tocopherols, and Tocotrienols and other essential nutrients – such as thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, phosphorous, iron and potassium.
2. There is currently a clinical trial which shows promise that our Rice Protein aids in the absorption of vitamins. There has been a direct correlation between the use of Sun Warrior Protein and the absorption of vitamins in aids patients where other proteins do not provide such synergistic affects during the intake.
3. Weight Loss-Clinical studies in Japan have showed that by providing Rice Protein as a staple in a diet, that it can be used as a weight control vehicle. Especially, because of the superior absorption rates.
4. Diabetes- There are Clinical Studies going on right now which show that because of the balanced nutritional profile of our rice, it helps to actually maintain the diabetic affects of sugars, which could be used in diabetic products to help control insulin levels.
5. Cholesterol-Clinical studies have shown promise that our rice protein has cholesterol lowering potential and the USDA is currently using Sun Warrior in trials to see if it, it may help control high blood pressure.
