Why do we need protein?
Even if you exercise a lot or not, you need protein to support everything you do.
Proteins are chains of amino acids and play many important roles in our body such as building, maintaining and repairing body tissues.
On top of that protein supports our metabolism, increase muscle mass, boost performance and strength, satisfy our appetite and assist with weight management.
For active people and athletes it is important to have a daily high protein intake, specially from complete protein sources that provide all 9 essential amino acids our body can’t produce. Protein can supply your body with energy before exercising and also recover body tissues and fight fatigue after working out.
What makes our superfood protein so different?
Grilo Cacao Hopper is an organic blend that combines your favourite superfoods and the most sustainable protein on the Planet: crickets.
Crickets are a complete protein source
Insects are a complete protein that provides you all essential amino acids and all the energy your body needs to recover and keep your energy levels pumping. Crickets have 3 times more protein than beef, 2.2 more iron than spinach, 10 times more vitamin B12 than salmon and as much calcium as milk.
Organic cacao powder
Cacao and cricket flour are the perfect match. Besides all the protein benefits from the crickets, cacao supplies your body with lots of nutrients: magnesium, the key for relaxation and healing of muscles; more antioxidants than any other food to help you lower blood pressure and contribute to skin radiance; serotonin booster, to increase mood and happiness while reducing stress; high contents of phenylethylamine – the neurotransmitter produced naturally when we fall in love.
These may sound like enough reasons to load your recipes with Grilo Cacao Hopper, but we believe you deserve more and we picked a few other ancient superfoods, like organic maca and lucuma, that will enhance your health and support everything you do each and everyday.
