Iron Vegan Athletes Blend
The Bigger, Stronger Brother
ATHLETE’S BLEND maintains our commitment to organic, non-GMO proteins and to all natural formulas that are certified vegan, kosher and gluten free, but it’s also designed to aggressively support the needs of the most ambitious athlete.
If the goal is to enhance your athletic performance and to accelerate muscle cell repair after exercise, using the cleanest possible plant based ingredients, then ATHLETE’S BLEND is for you.
ATHLETE’S BLEND was designed with the most ingredient conscious athlete in mind. Each serving provides 30 grams of organic, non-GMO plant based protein which supplies a complete range of essential amino acids and helps to build and repair body tissues.
It also features 6 grams of added vegan L-Glutamine (to assist in muscle cell repair following exercise) along with a blend of fermented BCAAs. In combination with the naturally occurring amounts, each scoop delivers over 8 grams of L-Glutamine and a whopping 7 grams of vegan BCAAs. Last but not least, is an additional family of complementary ingredients that includes Taurine, Zinc, Beet Root and more.
Best of all, ATHLETE’S BLEND delivers all of the above without compromise. Like all Iron Vegan products, it maintains its commitment to organic, non-GMO proteins and to all natural formulas that are certified vegan, kosher and gluten free.
The Same Great Taste
ATHLETE’S BLEND follows in the footsteps of our SPROUTED PROTEIN. Gone is the gritty, grainy mouth feel of a typical vegan protein. In its place is a smooth, delicious flavour and a creamy texture that will almost certainly surprise you.
Your body needs help to stay on top of its game. Plant-based proteins nourish, alkalize and fuel you, so you can push yourself to the limit and come back stronger than ever.
Organic Fermented Pea and Sprouted Rice proteins were chosen for their elevated BCAA content and exceptional Protein Digestibility-Corrected Amino Acid Score (PDCAAS).
By choosing organic, you nourish your body with a superior fuel while minimizing your exposure to the chemical pesticides used in conventional farming.
2) Added Fermented Vegan Glutamine
Glutamine is an important amino acid that has long been known to promote muscle cell repair and immune function after exercise.
While protein has some naturally occurring L-Glutamine, it’s not enough to give an athlete the recovery and muscle repairing benefit they need. That’s why we add an additional 6 grams to every serving.
Because we believe in the power of plants. Our glutamine is derived entirely through the bacterial fermentation of non-GMO vegetables.
3) Added Fermented BCAAs
Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) are considered the building blocks of muscle. They help to protect your lean tissue and promote recovery after exercise.
BCAAs can be derived from a number of sources including duck feathers and even human hair. But don’t worry, ours are only created through the bacterial fermentation of non-GMO vegetables (beets and / or corn).
Taurine is an amino acid found in the heart and brain that has been shown to improve both mental performance and physical stamina. It also works in combination with BCAAs to reduce delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS).
5) Beet Root
Nitric Oxide (NO) causes blood vessels to dilate, allowing more nutrients into your muscles and energy into your cells. Unfortunately, supplements like arginine require a lot of oxygen to produce NO, which isn’t readily available in anyone performing high-intensity, short-bursts.
Beet Root uses a different pathway. It is high in nitrates that convert to nitrites in the mouth and then into NO in the stomach. This process, unlike with arginine, doesn’t require oxygen, making it an ideal source for everyone.
Your body takes a beating while you play and train, resulting in free radicals and stress that can compromise your health.
Quercetin is a phytochemical, found in fruits in vegetables, that acts as a potent antioxidant and immune-supporter to protect you from the negative consequences of intense activity.
Zinc is an important mineral for hundreds of functions in the body. We include it to support immune function, which is suppressed after physical activity, and to improve tissue formation.
You can only get as many benefits as you’re able to absorb. Piperine is a black pepper extract that helps nutrients pass through your digestive tract and into your bloodstream.
