What is Feasy?

Feasy is a well-rounded nutrient shake that aims to deliver all the vital nutrients of a meal.

Oat Flour

Oat flour is an extremely nutritious gluten-free flour. Instead of the protein “gluten,” which is common in wheat and rye grains, oat flour is rich in avenins--an oat specific set of proteins. Oat flour is also rich in soluble and insoluble fiber. Beta-glucan soluble fibers in oat flour limit the absorption of cholesterol into the body. Dietary fiber intake has been linked with reduced risk of coronary heart and cardiovascular disease. Oats are constantly recognized as one of nature's best satiating plants--they keep you feeling full for longer! With great fiber content, plant-based protein, trace minerals and filling, oats are an amazing natural ingredient.

Chia Seed

Chia seeds are tiny black seeds that are native to South America. Chia is the ancient Mayan word for strength, and for good reason. One ounce of chia seeds contains 11g of fiber, 4g of protein and 9g of fat. Of the fat, 3 grams are omega-3’s, which are an essential set of fats that the body needs. However, most people with Western diet’s don’t get enough of these fats. Omega-3’s cannot be produced by the body, and have been linked to a reduced risk of colon and breast cancer. Chia even has more omega-3’s than salmon, gram for gram. Chia seeds are high in quality protein that helps make it a very friendly weight loss nutrient; as these proteins reduce the appetite for snacking. The benefits received from a high content of essential omega-3 fatty acids, protein, iron, fiber, calcium, potassium, plus vitamins A, B, D and E made chia seeds a favorite for mayan runners, and a favorite of ours.

Flaxseed

Known widely as a key source for nutrition and health, flaxseeds are rich in fiber, omega-3’s and lignans. Flaxseeds are also a low-carb food; in fact, in 100 grams of flaxseed there are only 1.5 grams of carbs. Their high fiber content naturally suppresses hunger, and promotes digestive health. The omega-3 content of flaxseeds consists of alpha linolenic acid (ALA), which decreases inflammation by reducing proinflammatory proteins. The lignans in flaxseed promote lower levels of cholesterol as well.

Natural Cacao

Natural cacao powder is made from raw cacao from the Latin American Theobroma Cacao tree. Cacao is packed with antioxidants and flavanols. The flavanols in cacao have been proven to support the elasticity of blood vessels, and enhances blood flow. Cacao even has over 40 more antioxidants than blueberries. Antioxidants absorb free radicals that can cause cell and tissue damage, and even cause diseases such as cancer. Radicals can enter the body from toxins and pollution in the environment. Cacao is the highest plant based source of iron, containing more than both spinach and beef! It is also the highest plant based source of magnesium, a nutrient commonly deficient in Western diets. Cacao continues to impress, it has even more calcium than milk! As an added bonus, cacao contains a combination of the “bliss” chemicals of serotonin, dopamine, anandamide and phenylethylamine that can boost your mood, and is even a natural antidepressant.

Whey Protein

Whey protein isolate is the purest form of protein that comes from whey. The two other forms include whey concentrate and whey hydrolysate. Whey is known for its proven benefits in building and maintaining muscle tone and reducing fat tissue. Like most of our other ingredients, it keeps you full, and also helps you from eating those unnecessary calories. The peptide content of whey protein exert positive effects on lowering blood pressure. Tryptophan and glutamine are two special amino acids found in whey. Tryptophan helps with the production of the happy and mood stabilizing neurotransmitter called serotonin. Glutamine furthers aids with staying calm and reducing anxiety levels. Whey protein isolate also has essential amino acids for muscle repair that are good for reduction of tissue damage and increased performance. Whey isolate has less than 1% lactose, making it safe for those who are sensitive or intolerant to lactose. Compared to casein protein(another common type of protein), whey protein is quickly digestible. The amino acid leucine found in whey promotes the synthesis of muscle protein and further promotes the loss of fat tissue due to the energy required by the body to burn leucine. Whey isolate has 50% more of this amino acid than the two other forms of whey, making it a particularly good fat burner.

Tapioca

Tapioca comes from a starch extracted from the cassava root, a plant native to South America. The starch-rich root is ground into a masa, squeezed of its liquid and left to dry. This, now dry, Tapioca consists of predominantly carbohydrates, making it great source of fuel keeping you full and active. Tapioca is naturally low in saturated fat, and more importantly low on the glycemic index, which helps regulate blood sugar levels. Tapioca is also used in Feasy as an emulsifying agent, giving Feasy a smooth consistency that helps make it so easy to drink!
