HOW VPA'S PEA PROTEIN OPTIMISES YOU
VPA’s Vegan, dairy free Pea Protein is the perfect alternative protein source for anyone wanting to feed their muscles and body a full spectrum amino acid profile. VPA’s Pea protein isolate is a highly refined form of Pea protein with a minimum protein content of 76%. Sourced from Canadian yellow peas, this high-quality protein alternative is becoming increasingly popular amongst athletes.
Unlike many other protein sources, VPA’s Pea Protein is perfect for anyone who suffers digestion issues and food intolerance. Plus, our Pea Protein tastes great and mixes very easily in our VPA shaker.
Pea Protein Isolate
As an extract from yellow pea, pea protein isolate is commonly used as an animal alternative protein source. Pea protein isolate is rich in lysine and arginine, making it beneficial for physical athletes and active lifestyles.
Rice protein is a vegetarian protein isolate, source from brown rice and used as a whey or soy alternative. Treated with enzymes to separate the carbohydrates from the protein, Rice protein is high in amino acids such as cysteine and methionine, but unlike Pea protein it is lower in lysine, making the combination of pea and rice protein a more comprehensive protein combination.
Pumpkin Seed Protein
Extracted from the nutrient-dense seeds of pumpkins (pepitas) through the natural process of cold-pressing, Pumpkin seed protein offers an animal free, high-quality protein source, rich in nutrients and amino acids necessary for recovery and optimal health.
Sacha Inchi Protein
Sasha Inchi, or Plukenetia, is a vine originating in the Amazon rainforest, which grows seeds which are naturally processed for their protein content. Sasha Inchi contains all of the essential amino acids, making it a complete protein source. What makes Sacha Inchi protein so special is that is has a Protein Digestibility Corrected Amino Acid Score of 0.9, making it one of the highest digestible plant proteins. Sachs Inchi also contains very high levels of omega-3.
When compared to whey proteins, plant-based proteins have a much lower bioavailability (how much of the protein can be absorbed into your body). For this reason, it is essential that plant-based proteins must be consumed with high-quality plant digestive enzymes. This is what makes VPA Premium Plant one of the highest quality, highest digesting plant proteins on the market.
Choose to live by a plant-based diet can have many health benefits and many people have seen outstanding results from making the switch, but a plant-based diet also has serious and potentially life-threatening risks of B12 deficiencies. Despite being full of many other beneficial vitamins and minerals, plant-based diets are generally lacking in vitamin B12. For this reason, it is essential for any plant-based athlete to consume a B12 supplement, and this is why Premium Plant is a superior plant-based protein choice.
Similar to the B12 deficiencies found in a plant-0based diet, Iron is also a commonly low in plant-based diets. By adding both iron and B12 to Premium Plant, vegan athletes can feel assured that they are receiving not only the highest quality plant protein source, but the essential vitamins and minerals often lacking in a plant-based lifestyle.
