 It’s time to rethink your take on protein blends.

Protein powder is a brilliant source of easily-metabolised protein

Whether you’re vegan or omnivore, the protein you contains a rich source of branched chain amino acids (BCAAs). In fact, it contains the highest known levels of BCAAs of any natural food source. 

For vegans, pea protein isolate, made from yellow split peas, is an excellent source of easily-digestible protein. Pea protein is more digestible than most plant-based proteins and it has been shown to have a whole host of wellness properties. Unlike soy protein, it also has a good phytochemical profile and has not been found to contain phytoestrogens that may cause hormonal disruption.

Protein powder has a diverse range of health benefits

The right protein supplement can have a huge positive impact on your overall health. Protein Blends are a source of diverse biologically active compounds and it shows promise as an antioxidant, antibacterial and antimicrobial food source. Protein Powder may also help to enhance immune function and protect against some cancers.

Both whey and pea protein have been found to have positive effects on blood pressure. Protein rich blends can help to lower blood pressure and reduce cholesterol. This is especially important for maintaining health as you age.
