Power-Packed Pea Plant Protein Powder


Protein powders are a really simple way to grab high-quality nourishment on the go, perfect for boosting your daily protein intake to maintain healthy muscle mass and support immune function.

It all comes down to amino acids, considered the building blocks of life, and specifically the branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) leucine, isoleucine, and valine. All proteins are comprised of amino acids, and muscles, skin, hair, tendons and cartilage are all made of amino acids.

Protein also helps form your enzymes, hormones, and replacement tissues and cells.

Your body can make all but nine of about 20 amino acids in the human body. Nine amino acids are “essential” because you can only obtain their benefits through diet. They are:

  • Histidine
  • Isoleucine
  • Leucine
  • Lysine
  • Methionine
  • Phenylalanine
  • Threonine
  • Tryptophan
  • Valine

So, as long as a protein, either plant or animal, contains all nine essential amino acids, it’s considered a complete protein.

There’s a new generation of protein powders
There’s now a fantastic range of protein powder choices to match your needs:

  • You’re looking for variety in protein powders without sacrificing muscle-building benefits.
  • You want to boost your intake of plant proteins, fibre and omega-3 fatty acids.
  • You’re a veggie/vegan and don’t want to consume animal products.
  • You’re dairy sensitive.

Pea protein is a vegetable protein source rich in essential amino acids:

  • Easily digestible and absorbable.
  • Free of soy, gluten, and lactose.
  • Its amino acid lineup is surprisingly comparable to the best animal protein sources.
  • Its high biological value — or measure of the quality of the protein — makes it especially helpful for helping to restore muscle mass after a strenuous workout.
  • Highly nutritious, delivering a substantial supply of beneficial amino acids and large amounts of essential amino acids isoleucine, valine, arginine, and lysine.
  • Carb-free, making it a great choice for helping to maintain body composition.

Pretty amazing, and now so simple to add a spoonful into a smoothie or juice :-)
