"By Far the Best"
It has been such a cool shift to notice since taking Nuzest products.
Training wise, I definitely notice the times when I don’t have it because I just do not feel that great and I start to get swollen, so I notice a really big difference in that and it does slow down my recovery when I don’t take it.
I have really been focusing on my recovery and making sure I am really consistent with taking my Good Green Vitality and Clean Lean Protein as well. I felt like I just couldn’t train that much more so I needed to ramp up my recovery, so it has definitely served me really well in that regard.

We all know we need protein but..
HOW MUCH PROTEIN DO WE ACTUALLY NEED?
Quick Fact: Protein makes up the building blocks of your
organs, muscles, skin, and hormones.
Not only that, protein:
Provides your body with energy1
Is essential for the repair and maintenance of body tissues3
Supports your immune system4
I EAT A BALANCED DIET, WHY DO I NEED EXTRA PROTEIN?
Protein is an essential nutrient for all body systems.5 Eating a balanced diet is great, but reaching your daily requirement of protein can sometimes be difficult. Lifestyle factors, availability, costs, lack of time etc. can get in the way of making sure you are getting enough protein.
Protein is the most satiating nutrient and therefore can help to avoid overeating without the need for counting calories.2 Prioritising protein by building your meals around this macro-nutrient also has considerable benefits to overall health.
Without protein, we can't build muscle and we certainly can't repair it.3 Proteins also regulate gene expression, the immune system, and our metabolism.3 What's more, Proteins can assist in hormone production.9 Supplementing with a high-quality pea protein like Clean Lean Protein can help ensure you are getting the required amount of protein daily.
PROTEIN AND YOUR MOOD
Ever felt a bit tired and snippy, or do you have trouble doing strenuous activity like running or lifting weights? Perhaps you’re not getting enough protein in your diet. Lower levels of protein consumption has been linked to lower levels of dopamine and nor-epinephrine, which are brain chemicals that play a role in your mood, motivation and concentration.11
THE PROOF IS IN THE PROTEIN
There’s no doubt about it; it’s hard finding a protein powder that’s easy on the belly,
tastes great and doesn’t contain fillers…
Clean Lean Protein is highly bioavailable, meaning it is easily absorbed and made use of within the body.
Studies have shown that pea protein has an absorption rate of around 89% of that protein,
comparing well to egg and whey.12
Clean Lean Protein is possibly the highest quality and best tasting plant protein on the market.
It sets the benchmark for “clean label” protein powders.
Peas are classified as a sustainable crop as they use less land and water than alternatives and add vital nutrients like nitrogen back into the soil.
The European Golden Pea (Pisum sativum) has been chosen as the concentrated base for Nuzest’s protein powders.13 The Pea protein in Clean Lean Protein is one of the highest quality pea protein isolates on the global market and is naturally high in protein, starch, fibre, vitamins and minerals.
Low in phytates and lectin free, containing no fillers, preservatives or processing aids, Clean Lean Protein is gentle on the stomach and easy to digest. Typical pea proteins have a protein content of 80-85%, while Clean Lean Protein contains up to 88% protein and is one of the few ‘clean label’ vegetable proteins available.14
WHAT ABOUT THE TASTE?
We know, we know. Plant proteins don’t have the best rap! But our protein is delicious.. Or that’s what our customers tell us. For real, most people who try it think it is so tasty! We can talk all day about how good it tastes, but we’d rather let you try it for yourself.
“You can smell the deliciousness of the vanilla as soon as you open the container! I love that it is a clean formula, no sweetener & doesn’t cause bloating . Definitely worth it!”
“Nuzest protein powders taste GOOD. They have all the amino acids built into the product to make sure the protein goes where it’s needed. Plus they contain no nasties and no sugar.”
“The flavour of this is so nice, can be mixed really well with anything else that I'd like in my smoothie and just adds a really nice touch of sweetness.”
HIGH IN BBCAs
Clean Lean Protein is high in branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) - leucine, isoleucine and valine. Branched-chain amino acids are essential nutrients that the body obtains from proteins found in food, especially meat, dairy products, and legumes.15
They cannot be produced by the body so must be supplied through food. BCAAs have been shown to support lean muscle mass and muscle recovery.
Nuzest began in 2005 when company founder, Kiwi Trevor Bolland, learned that his daughter Monique had been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Not satisfied with the bleak prognosis, they embarked upon a two-year international search consulting leading neurologists, naturopathic doctors, and nutritionists. The experts' advice was simple: a healthy, balanced lifestyle and good nutrition were critical.
THE BEST POWERED BY NUZEST
SUSTAINABILITY - IT'S IN OUR DNA
Peas are a sustainable crop and the peas we use are the best of the best. Grown in Northern France, the seeds are carefully chosen and provided to the farmers for quality assurance. Peas use less land and water than other sources of protein. They also add vital nutrients like nitrogen back into the soil.
