The importance of protein for our body

When we talk about a healthy diet, an adequate intake of high-quality protein is key to maintaining optimal health:

  • It provides a sustaining, constant, light energy
  • It is essential to build, maintain and repair muscle mass and bones
  • It is involved in a multitude of metabolic, chemical and hormonal reactions in the body
  • It helps us maintain a healthy weight (the feeling of satiety, the metabolic rate are increased)

Why Choose plant-based protein?

Plant-based protein, regarded for a long time as of lower quality than animal protein, is now acknowledged not only as equal, but superior in terms of muscle and complementary benefits:

  • It contains more fibers and phytonutrients than animal protein.
  • A diet that is high in plant-based protein helps to lower blood pressure, lessen bad cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease.1
  • Studies have shown that the consumption of plant-based protein is linked to a decrease in the occurrence of certain types of cancer. 2

The organic difference

Certified organic food also has generous beneficial effects:
  • Several effects such as antioxidant, antimutagenic, and inhibiting the proliferation of cancer cells are superior to conventional food.1
  • It prevents increased exposure to pesticides and their accumulation in the body, linked to various health problems (cancers, diabetes, degenerative neurological diseases, fertility problems, ADHD, congenital malformations...). 2,3,4
  • It reduces exposure to antibiotic-resistant bacteria. 5, 6, 7, 8, 9
  • It is better for the environment (preserves the soil, fauna & flora integrity, etc...). 10

Satiety

  • Thanks to its very nature (a chain of amino acid), Quality+ protein leads to a deeper, more long-lasting feeling of satiety, and more stabilized energy than carbohydrates or lipids - which are, nevertheless, essential for a healthy and varied diet.1
  • For instance, studies demonstrate that a Quality+ protein breakfast favors a lower calorie intake throughout the day.1
  • Pea protein is proven to increase the feeling of satiety

Maintenance of bone density

  • Quality+ plant protein plays a key role in the growth and maintenance of bone density, at any age.1
  • The difference in the amino acid composition in plant and animal protein has noticeable effects on several health factors. Among other things, it has been proven that animal protein has negative effects on several health factors, including bone density.1
  • Quality+ plant proteins such as Nature Zen organic, sprouted brown rice protein and organic pea protein, are therefore excellent alternatives to ensure growth and maintenance of healthy bone density.

Sport & protein

  • Pea and rice protein, such as Nature Zen organic protein, have been clinically tested and proven to have equal benefits compared to whey protein as regards muscle mass, recovery and muscular endurance.1,2
