Sunwarrior Protein


As a nutritionist I love the clean ingredients. The amino acid profile, ease of digestion and assimilation, taste and raw formulation is what makes Sunwarrior my ULTIMATE protein powder.

It’s really hard to find a protein powder that isn’t full of toxic artificial flavors and sweeteners. I always ask my clients to compare my Top Ingredients To Avoid blog with the list of ingredients in their current protein powder. There are few protein powders on the market that meet my approval. I approve Vega Sport, Health Force, Garden of Life and if you are dead set on using a whey protein then I recommend Bluebonnet. The protein powder I have found to be the BEST is Sunwarrior Classic & Sunwarrior Warrior Blend. In nutrition, it’s not so much what you eat but how you assimilate it. Most protein powders are processed and heated, denaturing the protein so you assimilate very little of the amino acids. Sunwarrior has a 98.2% assimilation rate and the only proteins with a higher assimilation rate is breast milk. If you purchase a protein powder that is hard to digest and absorb you are simply wasting your money.

Sunwarrior Classic Protein is gluten free, non-GMO, and FREE of chemicals, acids and solvents. It is hypoallergenic and suitable for anyone- young or old, male or female and not just for those that live a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle. The proteins in Sunwarrior are prefect for repairing tissue, burning fat and building strong bodies.

Who Should Use Sunwarrior?

Sunwarrior is the ultimate raw, plant-based superfood protein designed for fitness and health enthusiasts.

  • Ideal for those who want to build muscle, lose fat and increase athletic performance. (My non-Vegan bodybuilding clients LOVE it)
  • Great for diabetics – a balanced nutritional profile of rice helps to maintain and control insulin levels according to clinical studies. The USDA is currently using Sun Warrior protein in trials to see if it may help control high blood pressure. The cholesterol lowering potential has also been demonstrated in clinical studies.
  • Sun Warrior’s superior digestibility allows for easy assimilation by children, the elderly, and adults. It is one of the few proteins I would recommend for everyone. My own children have it daily added to their Shakeology smoothie.
  • My clients interested in Beauty/Anti-Aging. It’s the anti-aging superfood protein. Most other protein powders have ingredients that I call beauty robbers.

The protein content, perfectly balanced amino acid profile, product formulation, easy digestion, absorption, and great taste are what set Sun Warrior apart from the competition. At 85% protein, Sun Warrior protein has the highest (non soy) raw, sprouted vegan protein on the market. This superior protein was designed for the health conscious, athletes, body builders, anyone looking to lose fat and build muscle mass without compromising health. There may be a few other protein powders that are good at building muscle but are also full of toxic ingredients. It’s the aging and disease going on under the beautiful ripple of muscle that is of concern to me.

What’s the difference between Classic and Warrior Blend?

Sun Warrior protein comes in two varieties, Classic and Warrior Blend. The Classic protein is the original brown rice protein and is my personal favorite. I was already in love with the Chocolate Classic when Sunwarrior released their next formulation, Warrior Blend. I am sure you are wondering what the differences are between the two proteins. Simply the ingredients used to produce the protein.

The Classic is made from whole grain brown rice, while Warrior Blend is made from pea, hemp seed, and cranberry seed proteins. There is not a huge difference between the two in terms of protein quality or assimilation – both are amazing. The best one is the one you prefer. I have a lot of clients that alternate between the two.

Classic Sun Warrior protein is made by bio-fermenting brown rice using an old world process of combining the sprouted endosperm and the bran from raw sprouted whole grain brown rice. This unique process yields a complete protein made up of all 9 essential amino acids and other non-essential amino acids in a perfectly balanced amino acid profile.
Warrior Blend is created using a cold extraction process that combines the several protein sources into a revolutionary formula. The resulting amino acid profile is exceptionally high in Glutamine, Arginine, Lysine, Luecine, and branch chain amino acids.

The extraction process of other proteins often involve chemicals or acid hydrolysis. Only organic enzymes are used during Sun Warrior’s low temperature natural enzyme process that is 100% organic compliant.
