What do you need help with?
Is Clean Lean Protein ok for coeliacs & vegans?
Yes. Clean Lean Protein is certified gluten free so it is safe for coeliacs and 100% vegan.
What is the ph level of Clean Lean Protein?
If you follow or are considering following an alkaline diet, then Nuzest Clean Lean Protein is an ideal choice to add to your daily food intake. Nuzest Clean Lean Protein, made from golden pea protein isolate, is the world’s ONLY alkaline protein with a pH reading of 7.8!
Where do you source your peas for the pea isolate and where is the powder is manufactured
We have deliberately chosen pea protein and to source that protein from Europe. The soil, air and water quality of Northern France are generally regarded to be very safe for growing and the process used for isolation is completely free of chemicals. Consumers can feel confident they are selecting a safe vegan protein, rather than fear they are ingesting a protein powder tainted with contaminants.
To learn more about contaminants in vegan protein and our products, I encourage you to read this article: https://www.nuzest-usa.com/concerned-contaminants-many-vegan-proteins-choose-instead.
Are there any sweeteners in any of your protein powders?
Clean Lean Protein is naturally sweetened with a fruit protein derived from a West African plant called the Katemfe Fruit (African Serendipity Berry). The protein is known as Thaumatin. Thaumatin is a protein, but it is classified as a natural sweetener. It is digested in your body just like any other protein. You can learn more about thaumatin here.
Is Clean Lean Protein ok for people with Crohn’s disease or Ulcerative Colitis?
Due to the absence of FODMAPs, anti-nutrients, allergens, and gastric irritants, Clean Lean Protein is the perfect protein for people with Crohn's Disease.
How much protein should I be taking after a workout?
This depends on the length of your workout, what your workout consisted of, and your physical size, along with your dietary structure and goals. As a rough rule of thumb, around 1/2 gram of protein per kilogram of body weight consumed within 30 minutes will help encourage recovery and repair of muscle tissue.
Is Clean Lean Protein Kosher?
The Pea Protein Isolate used in Clean Lean Protein is Kosher certified and the manufacturer, which blends Clean Lean Protein, complies with Kosher practices. The finished product however does not have an official Kosher certification.
Is Clean Lean Protein certified organic?
Our peas are grown in France and under strict conditions, and covered to reduce the risk of environmental damage and contamination. Unfortunately, due to local regulations, this means they cannot be certified organic. You can rest assured though that the product is pesticide, herbicide and GMO free. The only certified organic pea proteins available at this time are of uncertain quality and so for the time being we consider Clean Lean Protein to be 'better than organic'.
Why is it important that the product is 'alkaline'?
Our body requires finely controlled pH levels in the blood (as well as tissues and other fluids) in order to maintain optimal health. Modern diets and non-vegan protein sources may cause an increase in acidity in the blood, which then needs to be buffered by the body breaking down bone and muscle tissue to free up 'basic' (alkaline) compounds. Clean Lean Protein provides a high level of good quality protein, without contributing to acid overload in the body.
Can I consume products after the Best Buy Date?
Best Before means that it is probably safe to consume past the best before date, but that its nutritional value is likely to be degraded depending on how it has been stored over that time. For example, if it has been kept cool or in a refrigerator it is likely to last longer. In some regulatory environments, the advice is generally 3 months after Best Before Date. However, even though products are likely to be perfectly safe for several weeks past their Best Before Date, in the interest of safety first, Nuzest does not recommend consuming products past their Best Before or Expiry Date.
Does Good Green Stuff contain caffeine?
The green tea and cocoa bean are included due to their amazing antioxidant potential. They are high antioxidant containing extracts. This means the relative antioxidant level is higher whilst caffeine content will be diminished in the extraction process. The maximum amount of caffeine that could be expected from this amount of combined green tea and cocoa without extraction would be under approximately 7mg per serve (or about 1/25th of a small brewed coffee!), but in reality the amount would be negligible. Good Green Stuff should be completely fine for a caffeine sensitive individual.
Is Good Green Stuff safe for diabetics?
Good Green Stuff is completely safe for diabetics. There are less than 3 grams of carbohydrates per serve so the effect on blood glucose is minimal; and, at around 40 calories per serve, any effect on insulin in type 2 diabetics (and those with metabolic syndrome and pre-diabetic disorders) is almost nil. Good Green Stuff may even help those with diabetes due to the inclusion of ingredients such as chromium and green tea extracts that aid glycaemic control and improve insulin sensitivity.
How is Good Green stuff labelled 'gluten free' when it contains barley and wheat grass?
The barley and wheat grass in Good Green Stuff are the growing portion of the plant, not the grain. The grain is the part that contains gluten. Every batch of Good Green Stuff is tested for gluten and is certified gluten-free.
I have several health conditions and am taking a lot of medications. Is it OK for me to take Good Green Stuff?
There can often be drug-herb and drug-food interactions with poly drug use. We always recommend that anyone with a pre-existing condition, and those taking medication, consult with a suitably qualified health practitioner before using any nutritional supplement.
Is Good Green Stuff safe for children?
According to Australian and New Zealand regulations, Good Green Stuff is suitable for children aged 4 and over. However the dosage for children aged 4 - 14yrs is half that of an adult (1/2 scoop). Regulations may vary from country to country but, in any event, we do not recommend Good Green Stuff for anyone under the age of 4. Kids Good Stuff is a better alternative for children as the formula was developed specifically for early childhood development.
Is Good Green Stuff suitable for coeliacs and vegans?
Yes, Good Green Stuff is suitable for both coeliacs, vegetarians and vegans. None of the ingredients in Good Green Stuff are derived from animal products and it is certified gluten free.
How is Good Green Stuff labelled as being 'Paleo friendly' when it contains pea isolate?
Good Green Stuff is Paleo friendly. The challenge with legumes on a Paleo or Primal style diet is the 'anti-nutrients' that legumes contain. Our natural enzymatic isolation process effectively removes the phytates, lectins, saponins and trypsin inhibitors, leaving a highly digestible protein that is free of the problems associated with legumes.
Is Good Green Stuff safe to take during pregnancy?
There is nothing in Good Green Stuff that is contraindicated during pregnancy. We have designed Good Green Stuff to be a safe, every day formula for all adult populations. Note: Rosemary is contraindicated for pregnancy in high (therapeutic/herbal medical) doses but the miniscule amount in Good Green Stuff is completely safe. However, we always advise women who are pregnant or breastfeeding to seek independent advice from their health practitioner first.
How is Good Green Stuff different from other greens products?
Firstly it's not just a 'greens' product. Many 'greens' products are simply powdered foods without any fortification of essential vitamins and minerals, or probiotics, bioflavonoids etc. Powdered food blends are OK for a little 'boost' in your smoothie but without taking significantly more than the recommended teaspoon or two, they really do not offer significant supplementation. Of those 'greens' products that do strengthen their powdered foods with added vitamins, minerals, probiotics etc., you will find that Good Green Stuff has significantly higher levels of nutrients than most, if not all, products available in this category. Most importantly however are the forms of those ingredients. Good Green stuff uses the most bioavailable, 'body-friendly', and effective forms available; many of which are not used by ANY of our competitors. It makes for a more effective, more efficient, and in some areas safer, formula to your health and wellbeing.
Why do I need Good Green Stuff (or any supplement)?
For nutritional insurance - to help plug the gaps in your diet due to poor food quality, soil depletion and imperfect dietary choices; and because of the demands our bodies make for extra nutrients due to environmental toxins and our high-stress modern lifestyles. Nothing should replace a balanced diet of real food - supplements simply help fill the gaps.
