The journey of Amazonia started all the way back from a small and modest kitchen in laid-back Fremantle.
After consuming Acai berries for several months, Dwayne (the founder) was feeling amazing effects of the berries and feeling a bright change. "I just always thought low energy was a normal state of being". Energised by the difference these whole nutrients made, Dwayne felt it his mission to share his health revolution with the world.
Amazonia brings the best superfoods of the Amazons to health enthusiasts seeking to take their wellness to the next level. All the while still supporting sustainability initiatives that don’t compromise on health or the planet.
Amazonia abides by the Australian Certified Organic Standard. This is the highest standard worldwide to produce authentication, from source to product.
The word "organic" refers to the way farmers grow and process agricultural products without the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or other artificial chemicals. These products include fruits, vegetables, grains, dairy products, and meat.
All Amazonia products contain absolutely no synthetic vitamins, additives, or GMO. All our products have the…
Nurturing the ecosystem which in turn nurtures us is an important way to sustain life. We cannot thrive or survive by taking from the environment without giving back. We believe the answer lies in organic agriculture and tree oriented Agroforestry which is a big part of the solution.
Hand-harvested by thousands of local families in the rich swamplands of the Amazon, wild Açaí agroforestry is a lifeline that creates economic and environmental benefits.
The northern state of Pará alone contains over 6.1 million acres of vast, wild-growing Açaí trees. We can literally feed the world, provide incomes for thousands of Brazilians, and keep massive areas of the Amazonian rainforest standing through this sustainable business model.
Tree-orientated agroforestry is a means to keep vast amounts of coconut trees standing, along with the surrounding ecosystem.
We source from the ‘land of coconuts’, where a ‘coconut religion’ even resides. The ‘tree of life’ provides everything from building materials to food to hydration.
Amazonia founder Dwayne Martens worked with locals in Vietnam to cultivate a semi-arid plot of land into a certified organic Pitaya plantation. In other regions, Pitaya farming has led to deforestation.
However, Amazonia is once again pioneering a new industry for a sustainable future.
Gathered from the heartland of Thailand, our partners are some of the longest-standing traditional farmers in the land.
Again focussed on organic agriculture, these Buddhist people hold the utmost respect for the land and practise sustainable cultivation methods.
The key difference between raw proteins to heavily processed proteins is that raw proteins are not heated above 45 degrees Celcius. Most processed proteins go through a pasteurization process to kill bacteria and are cooked at high temperatures, or require additional acids and enzymes to break down the protein giving it a higher concentrated protein content.
Those looking to put on muscle-mass quickly may find this attractive, but not your strict vegan.
On the other side, despite generally having a lower percentage of protein, sources of raw protein maintain a plethora of nutritional benefits, including fats, fiber, vitamins, and amino acids, which would naturally be lost during the concentration process in processed proteins.
Anything that doesn’t come from an animal or fish, and grows out of the ground is considered a plant. This includes all types of fruits, vegetables, grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, and any food product produced from these ingredients.
Plants are jam-packed with nutrition including fiber, vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats - making them a balanced well-rounded source of good nutrition, outside of just protein. When consuming animal protein, you will be hard-pressed to get sufficient Vitamins C, A, and E, folate, and magnesium, but these are abundant in many plant sources. And as an added benefit, most plants contain no cholesterol or saturated fat.
Anyone who is looking to improve their health, consume the best type of plant protein that is organic, sustainably grown, and will give them the competitive edge when it comes to performing in sports or in life will be guaranteed results when taking Amazonia’s raw protein health powders.
