Raw Plant Protein. No Dairy, No Soy, No Animal. Pea. Brown Rice. Quinoa. Spirulina. Artichoke. Amaranth. Gluten Free, Non GMO. Good nutrition creates health in all areas of our lives. The importance of protein to balance health is often underestimated. According to a Harvard School of Public Health, a lack of protein can lead to muscle loss, decreased immunity, heart problems, and respiratory issues. Choosing a diet rich in plant protein or protein derived from grain legumes yields an extra bonus, eliminating the risk associated with saturated fats found in animal protein. Animal protein vs Plant protein sources. A 6-ounce broiled porterhouse steak is a great source of complete protein – about 40 grams worth. But it also delivers 38 grams of fat, 14 of them saturated. Thats more than 60 percent of the recommended daily intake for saturated fat. The same amount of salmon gives you 34 grams of protein and 18 grams of fat, 4 of them saturated. A cup of cooked lentils has 18 grams of protein, but under 1 gram of fat, providing a much higher protein to fat ratio. What is hypoallergenic. VPro Raw Plant Protein is hypoallergenic. This means it will not irritate the stomach and is easier to digest than other sources of protein. People with gastrointestinal ailments such as irritable bowel syndrome, food allergies, or who are lactose intolerant may find it difficult to digest meat, dairy, and other sources of protein. Plant proteins are a safe and healthy alternative. Pure non-GMO plant protein. Plants are an excellent source of complete protein. High digestibility, absorption, & upset stomach. Helps maintain & build lean muscle. Amino acids helps prevent muscle breakdown. Contains 23g of protein per serving. Low in fat and has only 4g of carbs per serving. Provides all essential amino acids. Naturally cholesterol-free. Rice protein is high in sulfur-containing amino acids cysteine and methionine, but low in lysine. Pea protein, on the other hand, is low in cysteine and methionine but high in lysine. The combination of the rice and pea protein offer a superior amino acid profile that is comparable to diary or egg proteins, but without the cholesterol and potential for allergies and intestinal issues that some have with other proteins. Peas are not only high in protein (approximately 90%) but are highly digestible, allowing for higher absorbability. Pea protein delivers large volumes of the necessary branched-chain amino acids: isoleucine and valine, in addition to arginine, lysine, and others. Artichokes are loaded with antioxidants and anti-inflammatories while having low calories, low fat, and no cholesterol. Its natural properties help the body get rid of toxins and assist the liver in its vital operations, which also aids lowering cholesterol. Amaranth is a gluten-free grain and a source of complete protein-it contains all the essential amino acids, including lysine, which is lacking in most grains. Amaranth has a rich history dating back 8,000 years, when it was first cultivated in Mesoamerica. The ancient aztecas relied on amaranth as a food staple and used it in religious rituals, earning it the name "super grain of the Aztecs" and "golden grain of the gods."
Directions: Add one scoop to 10-12 oz of chilled water in a shaker cup or blender and mix thoroughly. Take 1-3 shakes daily or as your desired protein intake. Take first shake in the morning, second mid day or before your workout, and the third post-workout or as an evening snack. Shakes can be used in between meals as a snack or to aid in keeping amino acid levels up during dieting.
Warnings: Pregnant or lactating women, diabetics, hypoglycemic, & people with known medical conditions and/or taking drugs should consult with a licensed physician and/or pharmacist prior to taking dietary supplements. True Grit. Real raw plant protein has a little grittiness to it. A slight grittiness to the taste is a sure way to tell you are getting quality raw plant protein. It is possible to reduce a gritty texture with further refinement or by dilution, however this comes at the cost of the quality of the raw protein. Hypoallergenic: contains no yeast, dairy, egg, gluten, corn, soy, wheat, sugar, starch, salt, preservatives, or artificial color, flavor or fragrance.
