Many of our patients have allergies and sensitivities to dairy and therefore cannot tolerate whey protein. There are a few options on the market for dairy-free protein powders, but most people have reported that the taste is unappealing. After hearing frustrations from many people, we took it upon ourselves to find a better option and developed a shake is not only hypoallergenic (dairy, whey and soy free) but also delicious!
Essential base combines protein from peas, rice and pumpkin and naturally sweetened with stevia. It’s creamy and smooth and blends great in any beverage. It mixes easily in water or almond/coconut/rice milk for a smooth and creamy drink. On the go, simply mix with just a spoon, or in a shaker bottle, no blender required!. It’s also great in a blended smoothie with fruit of your choice. It comes in a delicious Vanilla, Peanut Butter, Spiced Chai flavor (with a hint of pumpkin- yum!) and Creamy Chocolate.
Just as we all look different on the outside, we are also very different on the inside and that is why we emphasized customized health plans for each individual. Some people may benefit from more carbohydrates while others may need more fats or fiber. Base Essentials allows you to add more fruit, add nut butter and even share with a friend who is vegan. We love the versatility of this shake powder.
Advantages of Essential Base
Less is more - Many shakes on the market use an all in one approach, however certain herbs can affect the immune system, disease status, medication absorption, and digestion. We prefer to use a BASE protein and then supplement as needed based on each person’s needs.
Convenience - A healthy diet can be difficult with today’s busy lifestyle. The most convenient snacks are processed carbohydrates which negatively affect blood sugar, create cravings and leave you hungry an hour later. You can have a simple protein rich snack by simply adding water or nut milk and shaking it up. Ready, set go! Take it on your commute, the gym, the soccer game and more
Why more protein? - Protein helps with blood-sugar stability, muscle growth, hair/skin/nail repair, and provides essential building blocks for communication throughout the body. We find that most people are not getting enough protein in their diets simply due to lack of convenience.
Approved ingredient label - If you read labels, you know how difficult it can be to find a product that you feel confident using every day. Most products have huge ingredient lists and many words you can’t even pronounce. Essential base has only 5 natural ingredients without any artificial flavorings or additives. Pure and hypoallergenic, it can be used by even the most sensitive people.
In addition to a great quality protein, Essential Base features Fibersol-2 and MCTs.
Fibersol-2™ is a soluble fiber comprised of a digestion-resistant maltodextrin. Fiber serves many purposes, including binding toxins in the intestines to aid in detoxification, helping glucose and lipid control, and supporting proper bowel function, regularity, fecal volume, and beneficial intestinal micro flora. What makes Fibersol®-2 unique is that it is soluble and less dense than other fibers and does not cause bloating or intestinal gas. Fibersol®-2 used in our Essential Base helps increase fiber in your diet without thickening the shake and with no change to its great flavor.
Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) are easily absorbed and easily metabolized fatty acids found in foods like coconut oil and palm oil. MCT oils are a preferred fuel source and unlike other fats will not be stored in the body.
Other Ingredients: Protein blend (pea protein isolate, rice protein, and pumpkin), medium chain tryglycerides, Fibersol-2™, natural flavors and stevia
