Paradise Herbs, Maca Up, Vegetarian Energy Protein, Chocolate Flavor, 15.94 oz (452 g)7 Reviews
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.
The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

Enhanced with Aminogen enzyme formula proven to increase protein digestibility and amino acid absorption!
Paradise Maca Up vegetarian energy protein is a complete source of vegan, hypo-allergenic protein with a balanced amino acid profile derived from non-GMO organic brown rice and non-GMO European yellow pea. Our pea protein's digestibility of nitrogen has been measured at 97.6%, and has a sustained released transit time of approximately 8 hours, which means it has excellent digestibility and keeps working. We have further enhanced our formula with the addition of the plant derived enzyme Aminogen. Research shows Aminogen increases branched-chain amino acids by 250%, plasma amino acid levels over 100%, glutamine levels by 90%, arginine levels by 80%, and nitrogen retention by 32%. It also promotes lean body mass, aids in muscle recovery, and provides less gas, bloating and constipation.
Paradise Maca Up also contains a great source of heart healthy Nutrim Organic Oat Bran fiber. Maca has been used for centuries by the people of Peru for its amazing energy and stamina qualities.
One level scoop daily. Tastes great mixed in water, juice, rice or almond milk.

iHerb Customer Reviews
This is an excellent protein blend. It mixes easily and has a great texture. I add some additional raw organic cocoa powder to my shake with a bit of stevia. I use this post-workout. No bloating and it really hits the spot. I've made the switch from whey protein to pea or pea/rice blends, and have lost body fat and increased lean body mass. I was skeptical, but glad I made the switch. Try it!
Pricey for the amount provided. Tastes good, though and you can always add fruit/nuts, etc. to bulk it up.
