Power Your Performance the Ultimately Natural way!
By using real fruits and superfoods we are able to not only flavour but also enhance the nutritional content of our proteins. These unique, smoothie inspired blends are packed with fibre, protein, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants in each serve.
Ultimately Natural’s protein range contain nothing artificial and are 100% natural.
We only use.....
Whey Protein Concentrate (WPC)
Whey Protein Concentrate (WPC) is the richest natural source of branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) and is the perfect performance protein when looking for complete nutrition to enhance lean muscle gain, fat loss & recovery. WPC actually retains more amino acids, essential fatty acids and overall vitamin and mineral content than the more heavily refined whey protein isolate (WPI). Therefore we do not use any whey isolate in our formulas as Ultimately Natural strives to only bring you products that have a balanced and synergistic nutritional profile.
The little fat WPC does contain is naturally occurring good fats or essential fatty acids (EFA’S) which host an array of other health benefits. These essential fatty acids (EFA’s) also contain much higher levels of various phosphor-lipids, These omega-6 & polyunsaturated fatty acids actually help to block fat uptake and increases the speed of fat burning in the body, making it a truly complete protein for all goals be it weight loss, muscle gain and recovery.
Our Whey protein is sourced through National Suppliers ‘Fonterra Foods’ who supply wholesalers the best dairy ingredients from Australian and New Zealand farmers. They only deal with farmers who supply their animal products from pasture fed cows, where the cows can roam freely. In addition Fonterra have in place strong practices to ensure their suppliers comply with high a level of animal welfare. Fonterra’s Whey Protein Concentrate is an instantised, soluble milk protein that is an un-denatured and spray dried. The protein is manufactured from fresh rennet casein whey using an ultra-filtration process. Low temperature processing ensures retention of both nutritional and functional qualities
Pea, Rice and Hemp Protein
When looking for a complete source of plant protein which still contains the full profile of amino acids, Pea, Rice and Hemp Seed derived protein cannot be matched. We use 100% Pea Protein Isolate which is high in amino acids and is ideal for vegetarians, vegans and anyone who wants a high quality non-dairy protein, while our Organic Hemp Protein contains a minimum 50% protein content and is high in essential fatty acids, with around 80 percent of its total oil volume being made up of healthy Omega-3, -6 and -9 fats. In addition to this we also add Organic Rice Protein Isolate which just recently has been hailed just as effective as Whey Protein in a recent study at the university of Tampa where it was found that “Rice protein isolate administration post resistance exercise decreases fat-mass and increases lean body mass, skeletal muscle hypertrophy, power and strength comparable to whey protein.”
Native to Paraguay, the stevia plant is as much as 300 times sweeter than sugar. It contains zero calories and does not effect blood glucose levels unlike sugar.
In fact, native people in South America have used stevia as a sweetener for hundreds of years and the leaves are also used to make medicine. Here at Ultimately Natural we only use quality, pure Stevia extract to sweeten our products.
Filled with flavonoid polyphenols and antioxidants, Cacao has fat burning properties and creates a profound effect on nitric oxide levels, which is essential for the regulation of muscle performance, repair and growth. Our Choc Super Greens protein and Organic Cacao Whey protein has been infused with raw Organic Cacao for a truly superior superfood blend.
The vitamins and minerals found in both fresh coconut and coconut milk powder are responsible for many functions of a healthy body such as oxygen support, disease prevention, muscle and nerve relaxation and weight loss. Over 10% of our sensational Blueberry Smoothie formula is created using quality coconut milk powder which has been proven to retain all of these health enhancing benefits.
Ultimately Natural’s Choc Super Greens packs an awesome antioxidant, vitamin, mineral and phytonutrient punch in each serve with some nature's top superfoods including spirulina, wheat grass, barley grass, alfalfa, chlorella, broccoli, acai, and maca to name a few and is completely organic. We also infuse this mixture into our vegan 'Choc Supergreen Protein' and complete it with a touch of stevia and organic cacao for a truly nutritious and delicious finish.
Cinnamon is a super spice that not only adds a sweet aromatic finish to foods but also offers many health benefits including the ability to regulate blood sugar, stimulate digestion and metabolism and can even improve mood and cognitive function. We use cinnamon to both flavour and enhance our Banana Smoothie protein.
Rich in potassium, iron, B6 & tryptophan, bananas provide an array of health benefits including mood enhancement, boosts in energy, neutralizing blood pressure, aiding in muscle contraction and increasing protein synthesis. Bananas are a great accompaniment to any active lifestyle, which is why we use it as a base ingredient across our Mixed Berry, Blueberry & Coconut Whey, and Banana & Cinnamon whey range.
Organic Blue Agave Inulin
Blue Agave Inulin is a soluble fiber and great intestinal bacteria enhancing prebiotic. Despite boasting a sweet, aromatic flavour, Agave Inulin has minimal impact on blood sugar and has been proven to increase calcium and magnesium absorption when combined with other foods. We use Organic Blue Agave Inulin to naturally flavour and enhance our Vanilla and Banana Smoothie range.
Organic Vanilla Bean Powder
Organic vanilla bean contains vanillin (the compound responsible for vanillas aromatic smell and taste) which is a powerful antioxidant. Rich in vitamins and minerals such as niacin, pantothenic acid, thiamin, riboflavin and vitamin B-6, Vanilla can benefit the body in many ways. The sweet aroma is known to trigger the release of serotonin making you feel calm, happy and satisfied. This popular spice also contains small traces of minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, manganese, iron and zinc. These vitamins also help in enzyme synthesis, nervous system function and regulating body metabolism making it an ideal alternative to artificial flavours.
Berries are nutritional powerhouses and are naturally high in antioxidants, fiber, vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients. Boosts in immunity, burning more fat, aiding muscle recovery and regulating blood sugar are just some of the benefits one can expect from adding berries to their diet. You’ll find a mix of raspberry, blueberries and strawberries in our Mixed Berry Smoothie blend while blueberry has been added to our Blueberry & Coconut Smoothie protein.
The Acai Berry is a reddish, purple fruit. It comes from the Acai Palm Tree (Euterpe oleracea), which is native to Central and South America. It is a relative of the blueberry, cranberry, and other dark purple fruits. Research on the Acai Berry has focused on its extraordinary natural antioxidant activity, known to be valuable preventing diseases caused by oxidative stress, such as heart disease and cancer. Acai is now recognized for helping support Cognitive and Mental Function.
Bee Pollen is made by honeybees, and is the food of the young bee. It is considered one of nature's most completely nourishing foods as it contains nearly all nutrients required by humans. Bee-gathered pollens are rich in proteins (approximately 40% protein), free amino acids, vitamins, including B-complex, and folic acid.
Bee pollen is a complete food and contains many elements that products of animal origin do not possess. Bee pollen is more rich in proteins than any animal source. It contains more amino acids than beef, eggs, or cheese of equal weight. About half of its protein is in the form of free amino acids that are ready to be used directly by the body.
It is now known to support a wide range of conditions from prostate health to skin conditions and can help correct specific nutritional imbalances within the body.
