We often see gym users drinking protein shakes during or after a workout, but are they all they are cracked up to be?
Insoluble Protein: Cheap protein drinks may contain insoluble protein that are stressful to the kidneys and should be avoided. Many are dairy or soy based and can cause allergies
The Richest Plant-Based Protein is Organic Pea Protein: It is uber-healthy, organic and 100% suitable for vegetarians/vegans
Why is it so good?
Pea Protein is Hypoallergenic: Whey, casein, egg, and soy can lead to an allergy
High in BCAAs: Branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) helps keep your body in a muscle building state
Pea Protein Is Easily Digested: You don’t feel bloated and the amino acids are easily absorbed
It Is 100% Vegan: If you are vegetarian or vegan it provides healthy protein
Pea Protein Powder Is Rich In Protein: Many products only have 10-15 grams of protein per scoop, our high quality protein has 25 grams
Perfect in a smoothie: It keeps you in a muscle building state for several hours, so having it in a smoothie is the perfect breakfast
It Helps You Stay Full: It activates the release of hormones that keep you feeling full between meals
Low in Carbohydrates: A scoop has only 2 grams of carbs. You also get 2 grams of fibre per scoop
Pea Protein Powder Is Gluten free: It is gluten free and packed with healthy, muscle building protein. Also good for baking if you are allergic to eggs
Pea Protein is Lactose Free: While whey protein isolate is fairly lactose free, many can’t tolerate small amounts. Also, the sugar found in some whey powders cause bloating and gas
Take the breakfast challenge: Make a smoothie with nuts, seeds, berries, banana – whatever are your favourite ingredients – and see how your appetite is supressed until lunchtime compared to having cereal
