ORGANIC BODY RETROFIT is specially designed for those looking for quick-and-easy post-workout nutrition, as well as those on a moderately-high protein diet. Body Retrofit provides readily available nutrients and ALL essential amino acids for protein synthesis (muscle building) and to aid muscle recovery. This blend artfully combines various superfoods, including nutrient-dense Spirulina, to enhance nutritional value, yet not sacrificing taste. Good for children (who don’t get enough vegetables), elderly people and vegetarians as well.
The superfood ingredients in this blend are as follows:
Organic Amaranth Powder is well-known for its superior protein content, with all 9 essential amino acids. A study has shown that consuming protein before and after exercise has beneficial effects of reducing exercise-induced muscle damage and promoting muscle-protein synthesis. Amaranth is especially high in lysine, an amino acid found in lower quantities in other grains. Athletes sometimes use lysine as a protein supplement because it increases energy and stimulates muscle growth. Amaranth is higher in minerals, such as calcium, iron, phosphorus, and carotenoids, than most vegetables. It is highly recommended as a great recovery food in fitness programs and in the sports circle.
Organic Spirulina Powder, blue green algae that is rich in chlorophyll and functions as a detoxifier. Oxidative damage to body cells occur frequently following strenuous physical activities or exercises; the main active component in spirulina, phycocyanin which gives spirulina its unique blue-green color possesses strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties to fight against free radicals and oxidative damage. Studies (read more) have shown that spirulina may be beneficial to enhance endurance, and lengthen the time it takes before fatigue sets in. In addition, spirulina is a complete source of high-quality protein and essential amino acids of high bioavailability. Its vitamin B1 content is necessary for fats and protein digestion.
Organic Chia Seeds, One of the richest plant sources of Omega-3. Chia is a superfood powerhouse with a good range of B vitamins, complete protein (all 9 essential amino acids), more calcium than milk, high levels of antioxidants, and important trace minerals such as boron, which helps prevent arthritis and osteoporosis. Chia is also a good source of dietary fibre, which helps clean the digestive tract and rid the body of toxins which can cause water retention and weight gain. With its natural complex (slow-releasing) carbohydrates, Chia makes an excellent energy-sustaining food, and are great for those with active lifestyles.
Organic Cacao Powder, 100% cocoa. Great pre-workout and post-workout food. A good source of magnesium, flavonoid antioxidants, ‘bliss’ nutrients (cacao makes you happy!), and essential minerals. Great for heart and brain health. A study has shown that dark chocolate (consumed before exercise) is helpful in reducing oxidative stress after exercise.
Organic Banana Powder. Provides instant energy to fuel the body after extended periods of physical activities. Its high potassium content helps to deliver oxygen to the brain and maintain a regular heartbeat. Banana is also rich in Vitamin B6 which is essential for energy production.

3.Facilitates Nutrient Absorption
The dietary fiber in Body Retrofit helps improve digestion and facilitates efficient uptake of vitamins and minerals in the body. Both the soluble and insoluble fiber help to increase the peristaltic movement of digestive tract, thus removing unwanted substances from the body.

After a strenuous exercise session, there may be signs of muscle cramps, soreness, dehydration and electrolyte imbalance. The body requires specific nutrients to repair the muscles and stabilize the blood sugar after workouts.
