Introducing Amare GBX Protein, the world’s first protein powder that supports the gut-brain axis and microbiome!

Our days are usually filled to the max. Many people find themselves skipping meals or eating less-than-ideal foods to get by. Protein shakes provide an option for a quick and simple meal. The problem is, most meal replacement powders contain low quality protein, lack amino acids, and contain fillers. They often taste bad too.

GBX Protein is a pure, microbiome-boosting plant protein. All GBX Protein flavors are vegan, all natural soy-free and dairy-free.

What is GBX Protein For?

GBX Protein packs 17 grams of pure plant protein. The unique chickpea, brown rice and pea protein blend nourishes good bacteria in the gut and improves microbiome balance. This meal replacement will also help control appetite and support muscle mass. The specialized blend is smooth (not gritty!) and flavorful, unlike some other protein blends on the market.

Ingredient Highlight

The Amare Microbiome-Boosting Protein Blend features Artesa Chickpea Protein, which gives a nice texture and flavor to the blend. It also contains brown rice and pea protein, which help control appetite, promote cardiovascular health, and speed metabolism.


Artesa is a chickpea protein. These are premium, sustainably sourced chickpeas that have a unique combination of phytonutrients that help to support the microbiome. Because of this, GBX Protein has a smooth texture, giving it a good mouth feel because nobody likes drinking a gritty protein shake.

Brown Rice Protein

Brown rice protein has been shown to help with weight loss and to speed up metabolism. It improves liver function, improves heart health and pea protein, which that is the protein that helps to maintain muscle mass as well as aid in our weight loss, as well as support our heart health. 

What Makes GBX Protein Different?

Two words: particle size. The chickpea proteins in GBX protein have a very small and advanced particle size so that all of the particles are approximately the same size. This helps with absorption,  texture, and it helps with overall palatability as well as sustainability of the protein. 

Non-Essential Amino Acids

Here’s the thing about protein. There are some non-essential amino acids. There are 11 non-essential amino acids that are naturally produced in our body, and we do not have to supplement with them with our foods. These are things like alanine, arginine asparagine, aspartic acid cystine, glutamic acid glutamine, glycine, proline, serine, and tyrosine. Your body creates these on their own, so there’s no need to put them into your protein shake.

Essential Amino Acids

There are nine essential amino acids that are not produced by your body, and it is absolutely critical that we take these amino acids in through our diet and through supplementation. Your body can’t make these, so GBX Protein will help you get all of your amino acids. 

GBX Protein provides a full essential amino acid profile that’s better than any other soy protein source. You’re not going to get this from soy. You’re not going to get this from whey. You’re not going to get it from dairy. You’re also just not going to get it from pumpkin. You’re not going to get it from white rice, and you’re not even going to get it from hemp.

GBX Protein delivers 8 of the 9 essential amino acids:

  • Isoleucine, a branch chain amino acid that helps with muscle recovery and post-exercise recovery
  • Leucine another branch chain amino acid that you use when you exercise, and it’s replenished with the foods through the foods that you eat. This helps with the synthesis of protein and helps you to maintain muscle mass because one of the problems with weight loss is that sometimes when people go and lose weight, they’re losing muscle mass instead of fat mass. That’s not ideal. Use GBX Protein as a part of your regular nutrition system or as a part of your diet so that you can ensure that while you lose weight, you are also maintaining good muscle mass, lysine, amino acid that helps with the growth and development of muscles. 
  • Lysine, amino acid that helps with the growth and development of muscles
  • Methionine is a building block that our body uses to create proteins
  • Phenylalanine serves as a building block to create the non-essential acid, non-essential amino acid tyrosine, which is also involved in the production of neurotransmitters like dopamine and epinephrine. 
  • Threonine that is an amino acid that is a building block in the biosynthesis of other proteins. 
  • Tryptophan is an amino acid that helps build 5-HTP, then gets converted into serotonin as well as ultimately into melatonin, which helps with our mood and our sleep habits, and we also have valine, which helps to promote muscle growth and energy and helps with muscle recovery. 
  • Valine promotes muscle growth and energy, and helps with muscle recovery

Texture, Flavor & Functionality

We also know that the Artesa chickpea protein was chosen because it is one of the highest in sensory profiles as well as our functional profiles. You want your protein powder to have a neutral flavor profile so that then you can add in the flavors that you want and not get any kind of funky aftertaste that some protein powders have. You also want it to feel good in your mouth. You want it to have a really smooth texture, and you don’t want to smell things like whey or dairy.

The functional attributes on the other hand is how adaptable the product is and how good for the environment the product is. Can you use this in multiple things? Absolutely. So chickpea protein, you could make bars out of chickpea protein. You can also make protein powers out of it. There’s a lot of different applications of chickpea protein. We want to know that we can get it non gmo. Hello soy. Is there any non-genetically modified soy in the entire globe anymore?

If there is, you better start planting some seeds because it’s rapidly going extinct, so we need to know that we’re getting something that’s not genetically modified. 

Nutritional Profile

When discussing protein powders, something to consider is dairy contamination. It’s much more common to get food poisoning from a rotten glass of milk than some rotten chickpeas. 

PDCAAS & GBX Protein

When we look at the plant-based proteins in GBX Protein, we know that the protein profile is approximately 96% absorbed by the human body, making it one of the highest PDCAAS scores in the entire world, that’s the protein digestibility corrected amino acid score. If you’re spending money on protein sources that your body doesn’t absorb, you’re wasting your money. Our founding wellness partner, Pat Hence said, “Look, the biggest waste of money you can spend is on a product that doesn’t work. So you can head to your grocery store and spend eight bucks on a big old tub of protein powder, but if you’re not absorbing it, you’re simply wasting your money. It’s the worst $8 that you’ve ever spent in your life.”

GBX Protein Organoleptic Profile

We know that GBX Protein is going to get absorbed in our bodies. We also know that this has a really high excellent organoleptic profile. Organoleptic means that it relates to our perception by our sensory organs. How does it smell? How does it taste? How does it feel? We need these organoleptic profiles to be really good because otherwise you’re drinking protein powders that don’t taste or feel good. 

Extra Proteins

What about the other proteins in GBX Protein? 

Brown Rice Protein

Brown rice protein is a natural source of fiber and proteins helps with glycemic control. It improves liver function. It also has a great ability to help promote cardiovascular health, helping to maintain normal cholesterol levels.

Really low-glycemic index and high-glycemic index foods are some of the most pro-inflammatory foods out there. We know that it’s low fat. The brown rice protein is low fat, and it helps with satiety. It helps us to feel fuller, longer. 

Pea Protein

Pea protein has an amazing amino acid profile that helps to maintain and increase muscle mass. It helps with weight loss, heart health, has a high bioavailability, and it’s a great source of iron. 

Flax Seeds

Flax seeds are given us some omega-3 fatty acids that are going to help to support our heart and our brain health. Take it with your Omega’s friends. Make it a full circle. It also contains antioxidants, really good fat, as well as good fiber, and the flax seed can help to diversify the nutrition that your gut bacteria can eat, because flaxseed can act as a prebiotic fiber. 

Sustainably Sourced

There’s a huge environmental impact in the factory farming of cattle, which is leading to deforestation, which is leading to contamination of our water supplies. So we know that we need to take into account food safety and the environmental impact. We also want to look at sustainability. How sustainable is the protein source?
