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 organic pea. Pea protein is easily assimilated and has a sustained release transit time, 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 may provide 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.
Doesnt taste good

The vanilla tastes much better. Good ingredients, effective energy boost.
Maca Pro, Not Again
Posted by trebleinthekitchen on May 21, 2012
I am not impressed with this product at all. It has a horrible taste and texture. I have tried putting it in smoothies, oatmeal, overnight oats, cookies, and bars....and none of the items have turned out well because of this product. I will not be purchasing it again.

I love that there's Maca in it and that it's vegan, but, the taste is so-so and for some reason, it is much less filling to me than the other vegan protein powders I've had. I would buy it again for the Maca and maybe try the Vanilla next time, maybe it's better tasting.

not my taste.
So-and-so texture and taste, but good result
Posted by Reviewer2407096 on Mar 23, 2011
The powder is chalky and needs hard stirring with spoon. The taste is not that horrible, but not that pleasant either. It gives me a good post workout protein drink, even better than whey protein with aminogen.
