For a Healthy You
100% Duckweed Supplement
One ingredient | One scoop | Once a day
Maximum natural plant-based nutrition
Getting back to a healthy lifestyle
Dietary practice over the past several decades has shifted to low nutrient density and over-processed convenience foods.
Over-processing not only deprives these foods of nutrients but modifies them for taste and stability with added sodium, sugar, and fats.
Sunleaf is a supplement made from the whole plant for maximum nutritional benefit. No waste and No additives, simply pure plants.
We don't always take the time to eat healthy, so supplementing your nutritional needs can be a fast and easy way to make sure you get what you need. But not all supplements are created equal!
What is SunLeaf?
Duckweed is a small floating plant widely distributed across the Earth. The fastest growing plant on Earth, this modern crop, when combined with the advanced growing technologies at Planet Duckweed, is the forerunner of a new agricultural revolution. Environmentally minded food and supplements:
no arable land use, no herbicides or pesticides, no preservatives, recycled water and nutrients, no waste, whole-plant nutrition.
Selected through careful screening of more than a hundred varieties in our collection, SunLeaf is a health supplement made from a special duckweed. A complete protein with all essential amino acids and a uniquely high vitamin D content, together with polyphenols as antioxidants, calcium, potassium, and iron.
Nothing added | Nothing removed | Nothing synthetic.
Why is SunLeaf better than other dietary supplements?
Dietary supplements can support a healthy diet, but the majority of supplements are synthesized artificially.
SunLeaf is 100% duckweed, a whole-plant powder that provides essential vitamins (exceptionally high in vitamin D), minerals, and rich in leafy protein with all the essential amino acids, a complete protein.
Gently dried and powdered, SunLeaf is a natural multi-vitamin and complete protein source from a single ingredient.
- 40% protein, from whole green leaf, with all essential amino acids (a complete plant protein)
-High in Vitamin D and Calcium for bone and immune health
-Rich in Potassium for heart and kidney health
-Iron to support muscle metabolism and healthy connective tissue
-Polyphenols act as antioxidants, promotes immune health, and helps reduce inflammation
How does it taste?
SunLeaf has a mild "earthy or grassy" flavor. Most people say it tastes similar to green tea (Matcha).
How do I use it?
One tablespoon added to your favorite smoothie/drink/food once a day to help ensure adequate nutrition and protein in your diet.
Vitamin D and Calcium
Vitamin D is an essential nutrient needed for calcium absorption and mineralization to maintain bone health and may contribute to immune system health.
The primary dietary sources of vitamin D are animal-based, in the form of D3 (cholecalciferol). For those who enjoy a plant-based diet, vitamin D deficiency can be a challenge.
Vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) found in plants is a better choice for those who prefer a plant-based diet. *Studies have shown that vitamin D2 is equally as effective as vitamin D3 in maintaining 25-hydroxyvitamin D status.
SunLeaf has over 400% the recommended daily value of Vitamin D per serving
D2 and D3 are metabolized in the liver into 25-hydroxyvitamin D, or in the kidney to produce the active form of vitamin D, 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D. Active forms of vitamin D act on target tissue receptors to influence not only bone health, but a wide range of immune functions that may help our body fight off diseases and cancers.
Potassium is an essential dietary nutrient needed for proper kidney function, nerve transmission and muscle contraction. Clinical studies suggest potassium supplementation reduces blood pressure and decrease risk of stroke.
Is potassium sourced from plants better for my health?
Plant sources of potassium come in variety of forms: potassium phosphate, sulfate, citrate, aspartate, bicarbonate, and gluconate. Lab made synthetic dietary supplements typically come in only one form, potassium chloride.
Iron supports muscle metabolism and healthy connective tissue . Iron is also necessary for physical growth, neurological development, cellular functioning, and synthesis of some hormones.
As a vegetarian, do I get enough iron?
Plants and iron-fortified foods contain nonheme iron only, whereas meat, seafood, and poultry contain both heme and nonheme iron.
The RDAs (recommended daily allowances) for vegetarians are 1.8 times higher than for people who eat meat.
Polyphenols act as antioxidants, promote immune health, and help reduce inflammation
SunLeaf is a great source of polyphenols, do I need this in my diet?
Studies show that polyphenols are powerful antioxidants. In this role, they can prevent or reverse damage in your cells caused by aging, the environment, and your lifestyle.
Research shows polyphenols can help manage blood pressure levels and keep your blood vessels healthy and flexible, promoting good circulation.
Polyphenols can also reduce and help control your blood sugar levels. They also stimulate your body’s release of insulin, a hormone that signals your body to use sugars efficiently. These effects of polyphenols can help lower your insulin resistance.
Research shows that polyphenols can activate your immune system to fight off infection and disease. Polyphenols can also promote good bacteria growth in your gut and limit harmful bacteria.
Rapid population growth and improved standard of living are leading humans toward an unsustainable demand for protein under current animal-based diets.
Why is SunLeaf a better plant-based source of protein?
SunLeaf (100% duckweed) is a complete protein with all essential amino acids. Cereals, seeds, and nuts are typically low in lysine. Legumes like beans, lentils, and peas are typically low in cysteine and methionine. Sunleaf , in line with FAO recommendations, is amino acid balanced.
Is SunLeaf Safe?
Duckweed has been used in Asian cultures for food and as traditional medicine for centuries. More recent scientific studies have found no adverse effects, allergic reactions, or adverse health effects in clinical trials. In fact, studies have shown smaller changes in glucose and insulin levels when compared to whey protein in a human diet, which means a diet rich in duckweed may help people struggling with type-2 diabetes.
In contrast to plant-based protein products from common crops such as soybean or pea, Sunleaf is predominantly derived from leafy tissues of duckweed which contain no seed related components and few root tissues.
SunLeaf has no known seed allergens or ingredients that may cause digestive issues.
