Evidence-Based Health Review
Firstly I would like to start off by saying many thanks to Form for providing me with samples of their tasty Peakblend to revew here at Evidence-Based Health.
Form also provided me one of their amazing blender bottle shakers so that I could mix their Peakblend without the need for an electric blender.
It’s for this reason that the Peakblend makes for a great, quick, effortless plant-based, nutritionally complete breakfast that you can drink on the go.
The shaker blender bottle is very easy, simply add your scoop of Peakblend powder and mix with cold water or if you wish for a more creamy texture you can mix with a plant-based milk.
I have tried lots of different brands of meal replacement and vegan protein shakes, especially over the past couple of months and in my opinion Form’s Peakblend really takes things to the next level as a plant-based MRP.
I found the Peakblend to be very light, yet filling, easily digestible and kept me going for hours until my lunch or dinner.
Taste & Flavour:
As mentioned above Form’s Peakblend comes in two tasty flavours including Banoffee and Chocolate Peanut.
Both flavours are delicious, however the Banoffee edges it as my favorite and blends very well with the overall texture off the Peakblend powder.
Banoffee is a classic English dessert based around bananas and toffee.
The Peakblend Banoffee has a nice mild creamy flavour and just makes for a really light, tasty plant-based meal replacement shake overall.
100% Vegan & Plant-based Ingredients:
Peakblend contains 100% vegan and heathy plant-based ingredients such as Organic Pea Protein, Gluten Free Oat Powder, Pea Starch, Flaxseed Powder, Coconut Oil MCT Powder, Brown Rice Protein, Toasted Pumpkin Seed Protein and much more.
Having tried numerous other leading brands of vegan meal replacement shakes and products recently, the Peakblend definitely has one, if not the highest quality, multi-protein source ingredients and thats before we get to all additional healthy goodies it contains…
High in plant-based protein, fiber and omega-3 fatty acids from flaxseed.
Enriched with 26 Vitamins & Minerals In Highly Absorbable Forms:
Another nutritional benefit that I really like about the Peakblend is that it’s enriched with 26 vitamins and minerals in highly absorbable active forms.
Most meal-replacement shakes usually tend to contain only the cheap, inactive forms of vitamins such as pyridoxine, cyanocobalamin and so on.
Peakblend however contains the active co-enzyme forms of Vitamins such as Vitamin B6 in the form (as Pyridoxine 5-Phosphate Monohydrate), Vitamin B2 (as Riboflavin 5-Phosphate Sodium), Vitamin D3 (as Cholecalciferol (Vita-algae D®) and Vitamin B12 as Methylcobalamin.
I have numerous genetic issues that involve these B-complex vitamins and VDR (Vitamin D Receptor) genetic issues also, so this is a huge nutritional bonus for me to have all these active vitamins, contained in the one tasty plant-based shake.
Packed With Healthy Goodies!
Peakblend is boosted with a number of branded nutraceuticals such as Wellmune®, KSM-66® Ashwagandha Root Extract, SynBalance® and MicrobiomeX®, all of which are scientifically proven to support health.
Naturally extracted from citrus fruit, MicrobiomeX® is a specific set of antioxidant-rich flavonoids that instigate the release of active metabolites which go on to improve your gut barrier function.
Wellmune® is a beta glucan shown to help strengthen the immune system and is supported by over a dozen published, peer-reviewed clinical studies.
Personally for myself the key highlight of Peakblend’s extra healthy goodies is the addition of KSM-66® Ashwagandha Root Extract.
The KSM-66® Ashwagandha Root Extract is my favorite type of Ashwagandha extract and I have been supplementing with it for many years.
I find the KSM-66® Ashwagandha Root Extract to have a more energizing or “activating” effect than other Ashwagandha extracts or the raw powder. Excellent as an adaptogen for adrenal, stress/cortisol and anxiety support.
It’s for this reason that the Peakblend also makes for an excellent post-workout shake for recovery and cortisol support after intensive exercise.
Overall I’m extremely impressed with Form’s Peakblend as a vegan, plant-based, nutritionally complete meal replacement.
Peakblend is tasty, light, filling, convenient, versatile, packed with nutrition and extra health supportive goodies.
As previously said having tried many of the other leading competitors brands of vegan meal replacements they don’t compare in the slightest with the quality of ingredients and nutrition that Peakblend offers.
Highly recommend for our readers who are interested in healthy vegan and plant-based meal replacement shakes.
