Need a Boost?

Adequate intake of protein is important to maintaining good health.

Protein provides building blocks for our bones, muscles, skin, cartilage and blood.

It also helps us make enzymes that keep our bodies functioning.

Protein calories are the most filling calories so in this way protein can help us maintain a health weight.

The Smoothie Essentials Protein Blend contains both whey and soy proteins with all eight essential amino acids and it provides 5 grams of protein in each scoop.

Soy is a subtropical plant, native to Asia, that was introduced to the Europe in the 1700s and to the United States in the 1800s. It contains protein, isoflavones and fiber, which are commonly considered to have health benefits. In addition to its protein benefits, people use soy products to prevent or treat a variety of health conditions, including

  • high cholesterol levels
  • menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes
  • osteoporosis
  • memory problems
  • high blood pressure
  • breast cancer
  • prostate cancer

Whey protein is a product isolated from whey, the liquid material created as a byproduct of cheese production. Whey is left over when milk coagulates and contains everything that is soluble from milk. The effects of whey protein on health are of great interest and whey protein itself is being investigated as a way of reducing certain disease risks.

About Smoothie Essentials - ShelleRae

Welcome! I am ShelleRae and I am very excited you are here. I joined the Smoothie Essentials team about 5 years ago now. Always health conscious and into prevention versus medication it seemed natural when the opportunity came up to take on the creation of this blog and the MatchaGT blog as well. As mother to three and surrogate to many more I've practiced much of what I write on sometimes with great success and other times with a bit less. My friends and family are my test kitchen and my facts are most often from WebMD - they seem to have a fairly accurate and conservative approach. The Smoothie Essentials product is a line of boosts that add functionality to one's daily foods without adding flavor or colors. (except for MatchaGT and green blend) making it easy to "hide" them from the finicky eaters we all know and love. From stirring them into yogurts, smoothies, frappes and even juice drinks it all come out with the original flavor being center star.. My inspiration comes from others who also are striving to live a better life through lifestyle changes.
