Nutrition

  1. Why do I keep hearing about protein? What is so good about protein?

    Proteins are the fundamental building blocks of our cells. They create the structure of our muscles, organs, skin, and hair. Protein is known to support healthy metabolism, assist in weight management, and help with lean muscle formation. The source of protein makes a big difference on your body. OWYN protein is a best-in-class plant-based blend that is easier to absorb by the body and will help keep you on-the-go.

  2. Why is the OWYN protein-blend so special?

    OWYN contains 20g of complete plant-based protein. Every cell in the body – muscles, hair, skin, nails – is made up of protein. The kind of protein makes a difference and our blend of clean, best-in-class, plant based proteins with a 2:1:1 BCAA ratio will keep you going longer and your lean muscles toned. Our blend is comprised entirely from plant sources: pumpkin, flax, pea and chia (powders only).

  3. What is a 'complete protein'? Tell me more about your essential amino acid profile.

    OWYN Protein has a complete amino acid profile. There are 20 amino acids that form a protein, 9 of which are called Essential Amino Acids. We need to consume them through our diet because our bodies cannot make them on our own. A 'complete protein' must have all 9. OWYN Protein has all nine – CHECK!

  4. Why are OWYN products plant-based?

    The answer is about as simple as it gets. Our product is better for you and your world. Plant-based ingredients are easier to digest and better for your body. Animal/dairy-based protein products including Whey are known to cause all kinds of health problems. We don't like that. Also, we care a ton about the world around us, and are proud that our product uses less land, water, and greenhouses than animal-based proteins.

  5. What are Omega-3s? What do they do?

    OWYN has 500+mg of Omega 3s sourced from Organic Flax Oil. Omega 3s have been shown to help support brain function, cardiovascular health and assist in muscle recovery.

  6. What is the pH level of OWYN protein shakes?

    OWYN Shakes have a neutral pH of approximately 6.8-7.2.
