The Importance of Sunwarrior Protein

Protein is present in every cell of the body and is of particular importance for bones, muscles, and skin and you are giving your body the advantage by sourcing this from Sunwarrior Protein.

Proteins consist of amino acids, but the human body cannot synthesise all the required amino acids it needs to survive, hence most protein needs to enter the body as a part of your diet. Here are a few essential facts about protein and how Sunwarrior Blend Protein Powder can help you reach your optimal protein intake:

  • Meat and fish are the best sources of complete proteins but are not an option for vegans or vegetarians. Nuts, legumes and even some grains can provide the necessary protein but adding protein drinks can ensure you reach your goal. Sunwarrior uses only plant sources for their protein powders.
  • Active people often need more protein than those who live a more sedentary lifestyle. Protein is especially important to those who want to build strength and muscles. We require protein to grow muscles, but strength training can strain and damage muscle tissue, and only protein can repair these muscles.
  • If your body does not get its necessary protein, it will start to break down muscle mass to meet the energy needs of the body. If the deficit should continue, it can result in muscle deterioration.

The best way to take Sunwarrior Protein?

There is no wrong way to use Sunwarrior Vegan Protein Powder. Most of our customers mix it with cold water to create a tasty protein-packed shake. The options are not limited to that, however, and you can even use Sunwarrior Protein Powder in baking. Here are a few of our favourite ways in which to use or consume the Sunwarrior protein powder:

  • If you are working out to build your strength, a protein shake within 30 minutes at the end of your workout could help your body’s recovery. All the essential amino acids in the protein shake will be sent off to your aching muscles to rebuild any damage and add new muscle tissue. You will still have the benefit of well-toned muscles, while you keep your body healthy.
  • For a more substantial protein shake, turn it into a smoothie with fresh fruit. Sunwarrior Warrior Blend Berry is an excellent option for one of these smoothies with its great-tasting formula. Blend it with a banana and whatever other fresh fruit you prefer, and you will have a great on-the-go protein punch. Add some ice to the blender for those hot summer days for added relief.
  • Some people prefer to eat their protein. A quick and easy protein-packed pancake can be made by blending a banana, egg and a scoop of Sunwarrior Protein and frying it in a pan. Vegans can substitute the egg for whipped aquafaba.

Are your products certified organic?

Our Warrior Blend, Sol Good Bars, and Classic Plus are all certified organic. We are currently in the certification process for all the products the USDA will let us certify.

Plant-based minerals and purified water, unfortunately, do not apply, so our liquid minerals may never get the seal, but Sunwarrior is dedicated to sourcing only the best organic ingredients and certifying everything possible.

Do your products need to be refrigerated?

None of our products, except Vitamin Mineral Rush (that’s VMR for those in the know), need to be refrigerated even after opening but keep those packages in a cool, dry place and out of direct sunlight.

Where do your ingredients come from?

Sunwarrior seeks out the best ingredients throughout the world, from the desert farms of Arizona and Utah to the rolling fields of the Midwest to the foothills of the Himalayas.

Due to climate, growing seasons, and sustainability we cannot source from only one country or region. We scrutinize and monitor the farms and facilities we deal with for the highest levels of quality and control.

Every batch that enters the United States is tested and approved by the FDA. We also rely on our own quality control standards to ensure our ingredients are of the utmost quality.

Are your products Kosher?

We are in the process of certifying all our products as Kosher. At the moment, Classic Plus and Warrior Blend have earned the Kosher seal from Orthodox Union.

Can I take your products when pregnant or nursing?

You should always consult a health care professional before beginning any new supplements, especially while pregnant or nursing. This applies to even the best plant-based superfoods.

All the ingredients in Sunwarrior products are considered safe in the amounts found in foods. Always use supplements in moderation and follow suggested use on the labels.

What is xanthan, oligodextrin, and pectin, and what are they derived from?

Xanthan is a natural stabilizer and thickener. Oligodextrin is a complex carbohydrate that also acts as a stabilizer and thickener. It also helps restore lost glycogen after workouts.

The xanthan and oligodextrin used in Sunwarrior’s Classic Protein are derived as a result of the fermentation of brown rice. Pectin is a soluble dietary fiber found in apples and other fruits. It has a number of health benefits and is also a vegan alternative to gelatin.

What is the difference between classic protein, warrior blend, and classic plus?

All these products supply plant-based protein, taste great, and tend to be more gentle on the digestive system than whey or soy. Classic Protein is made from fermented brown rice. This simple formula is suggested for those with food allergies and our more granola customers.

Warrior Blend is a synergistic combination of pea, goji berry, and hemp proteins with the bonus of medium-chain triglycerides from coconut. Warrior Blend has a slightly better amino acid profile and includes the anti-inflammatory power of coconut to speed recovery.

Classic Plus relies on brown rice, pea, quinoa, chia, and amaranth for ancient grain goodness without the gluten or carbs. It has a similar amino acid profile to Warrior Blend, but a slightly different texture and flavor. All are highly effective sources of protein, so it really comes down to personal preferences.

Can I take more than the suggested size of your proteins?

Yes, but we recommend you do not go over your body's daily recommended protein. Your body generally requires 10–15% of your diet consist of protein.

Can I give your products to my child?

It is always important to discuss diet changes and supplementation with your health care professional, especially when it comes to your children.

Children under the age of two years should not be given our products. They may be safe to use in moderation for children older than two.

What is the difference between liquid light, immune shield, and vitamin mineral rush?

Liquid Light is a plant-based fulvic acid mineral complex created by nature and cold process extracted into a liquid solution.

Immune Shield is a natural fulvic acid mineral complex fortified with silver ions. The silver ions are complexed inside the fulvic acid molecule for maximum protection and performance.

Vitamin Mineral Rush is a combination of minerals, fulvic acid, and plant-based vitamins. This is a great multivitamin for those who do not like pills or capsules, and it tastes like sweet tea.

Is there caffeine in your products?

None of our products contain caffeine. The tea leaf extract we use in Warrior Blend is herbal only.

What is the equivalent of the scoops in tablespoons?

Each product varies slightly. Warrior Blend is about 4 tablespoons, and Classic Protein is about 3 tablespoons per scoop.

Can the product be used after the expiry date?

Supplements begin to lose potency after the expiration date. They are usually safe to consume for some time after the expiration date, but use caution and know you are not getting the full potency.

If any product begins to smell off or show any signs of spoilage, they should be discarded immediately, regardless of the expiration date. Follow guidelines for storage and the product may last longer.

Are your products gluten-free?

All our products are gluten-free except Activated Barley, which naturally has some gluten. Activated Barley is being discontinued.
