Mankai Duckweed Powder by VH is a patented water lentil powder, LENTEIN®, and is a rich source of a variety of plant-based nutrients.
Unlike vegetarian sources of protein such as hemp and soya, Mankai is the only plant source of high-quality complete vegan protein powder containing all the nine essential amino acids and six conditional amino acids.
High quality protein is important for the body in order to maintain health and wellbeing. As we get older, it becomes increasingly important for adults to increase protein intake since ageing bodies process protein less efficiently and require more protein to maintain muscle mass, strength, bone health and other physiological functions.
Mankai Duckweed supplement, often referred to as the true superfood, is rich in a variety of nutrients including vitamin A, energising B-vitamins, fibre, polyphenols as well as minerals including iron, zinc and calcium. Mankai Duckweed Powder also contains high levels of one of the most important vitamins as we age, bioavailable vitamin B12.
Vitamin B-12 is a key nutrient that cannot be manufactured by the body. It is required for the health of the nervous system and to maintain healthy blood cells. Vitamin B-12 deficiency is often implicated in anaemia and it helps reduce homocysteine levels which are linked to heart and eye health.
Mankai protein powder tastes neutral rather like lettuce or romaine. It is easily added to smoothies, omelettes and egg dishes, dressings, soups and bread.
