From professional athletes to recreational sports competitors, there are those people who are always looking for a performance edge. This results in some seeking out banned performance enhancing substances. These synthetic substances alter the athlete or competitors body in a way that was not possible without it. Resulting in increased strength, endurance and overall increased performance. Many of these substances called "PED's" or "Performance Enhancing Drugs" can have negative effects on the body over long term use and are not allowed in most professional sports competitions. The good news is, mother nature provides her own performance enhancing substances without the risk and consequences of their synthetic, PED counterparts!
One of the best traits that we have as a species is our ability to adapt over time and evolve. As we learn new things and gather new information and ideas, our outlook on the world changes along with our lifestyles. This can be seen in many areas of our daily lives, the big ones like technology and modern medicine have changed the way we live and how long we live drastically. This is breakthrough science and innovation that we should be extremely proud of. We should also look to these practices and apply the same model to our diet and nutrition. This is something we embrace here at Organic Muscle by only creating certified organic vegan health and fitness supplements with the purest ingredients. Our Organic Plant Protein powder was created as a result of new information on how dairy effects the body and out of necessity for a plant powered replacement for whey.

This can be harvest to eat or processed into oils and nut milk. Even the shell of this powerful superfood provides us with some charcoal and coir from the fibrous husk!
