Riza Max Protein is one of our most popular selling protein powders.

If you haven’t gotten to know Riza-Max already, here are a few reasons why you should!

1- It contains 16 grams of protein per one scoop making it a perfect addition to your breakfast. When you wake up in the morning you are literally “breaking the fast” with the first thing that you consume. When we look at what the standard Canadian breakfast is, cereal rates number 1, followed by toast. When we break our fast with processed carbohydrates, such as cereal and toast, it causes blood sugar levels to skyrocket. Imbalanced blood sugar levels affect our mood, energy and weight. Swapping out a carb rich breakfast and adding in more protein will do amazing things for your brain and body.

2- Riza-Max is 100% organic and non-GMO. This means that it hasn’t been sprayed with toxic pesticides, herbicides and fungicides or contain any organisms created in a laboratory using genetic modification/engineering techniques. 

3- The brown rice has been sprouted before being turned into a protein powder. When a grain is sprouted this means that it’s been pre-digested allowing for increased enzymes. This makes it easier on the digestive system, which is perfect for anyone who has digestive problems.

4- It’s a complete protein, meaning that it has all the essential and non-essential amino acids. Amino acids make proteins that are responsible for building muscle and other tissues as well as supporting healthy neurotransmitter levels for a happy brain.

5- It’s free of flavors and sweeteners! One of the most common things we’re asked when people are looking for a protein is, does it have flavor and is it sweetened? No natural or artificial sweeteners and no flavor. This means that you can mix it into anything and it will taste delicious! Try it out for yourself with the recipe below:
