6009657580297The vegan lifestyle is fast gaining critical mass, and Absolute Organix/Lifematrix has been supporting vegans for several years with superior quality nutritional products like our plant protein concentrates (Raw Vegan Protein, Yellow Pea, Pea & Hemp etc) and essential fatty acids (Omega Pure DHA, Omega 369 Organic etc).

Now we’re raising the vegan nutrition bar even higher with Lifematrix Vegan Super Smoothie Essentials. Formulated to provide vegans (and anyone else) with a nutrient-dense quick drink or smoothie blend, “Essentials” uniquely combines high-quality plant protein with a combo of superfoods, pre-biotics and fibre.

We’ve formulated “Essentials” around our flagship Raw Vegan Protein, made from wholegrain, sprouted brown rice, an 80% protein concentrate produced by fermentation/enzyme activity, using no heat or chemicals to ensure excellent bio-availability of all the essential amino acids. To further enhance the protein quality and amino balance of “Essentials”, we’ve added defatted-chia seed (from cold-pressing) which contains around 20% protein and is also rich in minerals such as magnesium, calcium and potassium.

One serving of “Essentials” (20g) will provide 12g of high-quality, complete plant protein; that’s 25% of the RDA for women.

Note that both rice and chia are gluten-free.

Also on the superfood front, we’ve included organic raw cacao powder, rich in anti-oxidants, good fat and magnesium, as well as that “feel-good” factor – cacao stimulates the release of endorphins.

Vegan diets can be tough on the gut, and “Essentials” has been formulated to aid digestive health with pineapple fibre to support transit and pre-biotics (inulin extracted from chicory) to promote healthy bacteria.

“Essentials” can be used as quick, nutrient-dense drink – just add your favourite cereal milk (rice, soy, almond etc), or fruit juice, even water, or as the base for a “full-on” smoothie with added fruit and other goodies.

“Essentials” is unsweetened; it has a neutral/pleasant taste without the addition of sweeteners.

Lifematrix Vegan Super Smoothie Essentials is available in 200g (10 servings), 400g  and 1kg packs.
