Vegan Protein

Why buy Vegan Protein?

Protein is an essential macronutrient that is vital when it comes to cellular health, as well as the repair and growth of lean muscle tissue within the body. The main sources of protein we tend to find, come from either meat, fish, seafood, or dairy produce, which can be tricky if you’re a vegetarian, and even more difficult if you happen to follow a vegan way of living. However, there are other natural sources of protein, many of which are plant, seed, and nut based that are actually vegan friendly. These natural vegan friendly sources of protein have been developed into vegan protein supplements, providing vegans with a safe, efficient, and simple way of buying vegan protein and increasing their protein intake on a daily basis. Vegan protein combines hemp protein, brown rice protein, and pea protein together to create a quality, premium vegan friendly protein supplement, offering well over 20 grams of protein per serving, as well as numerous amino acids as well.

What are their benefits?

The benefits of vegan protein include the following:

It helps promote muscle growth

As mentioned, protein is essential for the growth and repair of muscle tissue within the human body. When we exercise for example, our muscles are actually broken down and destroyed. It is when we rest that we build muscle, providing the body has access to the right nutrients (protein and its amino acids) to begin rebuilding and repairing the muscle tissues and fibres, rebuilding them even bigger and stronger than previously. Vegan protein gives vegans the opportunity to increase their protein intake, without breaking their vegan lifestyle.

Weight loss

Another benefit of vegan protein is that it is thermogenic. This means that once ingested, the body has to work harder to break it down and metabolize it. To compensate, the body burns more calories to provide more energy, thus boosting the metabolism. Not only that, but as well as boosting the metabolism, as it promotes lean muscle mass, even further calories are burnt off because lean muscle tissue requires more energy to maintain itself than body fat.

General health and well-being

Another benefit of vegan protein is the fact that it promotes general health and well-being within the body. Protein isn’t just essential for muscle growth and repair, it is also vital for cellular growth and repair, as well as cellular health in general. Without protein, our cells suffer, and if our cells suffer, our health suffers.

The three protein sources found in this premium protein blend include the following:

Pea protein isolate

Pea protein isolate is derived from yellow peas, and is a wonderful source of plant-based protein, as well as fibre. What’s more, it is a great deal more soluble than other pea proteins on the market. This pea protein isolate has been specially formulated using the finest quality ingredients, using a series of complex processes to provide as much protein per serving, as possible. As the pea protein is an isolate, this basically means that, per serving, you get as much as 95 – 99% pure protein, with the remaining 1% – 5% coming from carbohydrates and fat. This particular blend also provides an extremely impressive amino acid profile, making it ideal for vegan and vegetarian bodybuilders or athletes, looking for a healthy and reliable source of plant-based protein.

Brown rice protein

The second protein source found in this highly complex blend of vegan-friendly proteins is brown rice protein. This protein, as you can probably guess, is derived from brown rice, which, whilst being a great source of complex carbs, also happens to be a surprising source of plant-based protein as well. This protein source is described as being a complete protein, as it provides all amino acids required by the human body. In actual fact, it has arguably the best plant-based amino acid profile in the world, plus it is rapidly absorbed, and is highly digestible. Brown rice protein is also extremely nutrient-dense, as it is a great source of dietary fibre, as well as minerals, and B vitamins. This protein is obtained using a variety of highly complex processes, including wet milling, fermentation, and various stages of filtration, as well as with enzymatic processes to extract the fibre and the protein from each grain of rice. The rice is non-GMO is hypoallergenic, and is of the finest quality, making it a very welcome addition to this premium vegan protein blend.

Hemp protein

Hemp protein is one of the most vastly underrated plant-based protein sources in the entire world. Hemp seeds are not only packed full of protein and nutrients, they also contain a very impressive selection of heart and brain-healthy fats. Obtained via cold milling processes, this hemp protein is of the very finest quality and is very easily absorbed and digested. Hemp seeds are also full of live enzymes and amino acids, along with vitamins, minerals, and the aforementioned healthy fats. Known as a complete protein source as it contains more than 20 amino acids, as well as omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids, hemp protein really is the real deal, and it makes a welcome addition to any diet if truth be told.

How does it work?

All natural premium vegan protein blend powders work in a whole variety of different ways, especially for people who are looking to actively bulk up and pack muscle mass onto their frames. To begin with, the proteins found in each of the three sources will help to promote muscle growth and repair, as they help the body to initiate protein synthesis, which is a crucial part of post-workout recovery. This is because it is this process in which the body will produce new proteins and muscle tissues, to replace the old and damaged ones caused as a result of a strenuous workout. Best of all however, is the fact that the proteins are absorbed and utilized by the body in different ways, and at different times. There are rapid absorbing proteins that help to nourish the muscle cells and get to work on repairing damaged muscle fibres and tissues almost instantly, and then there are proteins that are slower to be absorbed and digested, so you can ensure that your body has a steady stream of nutrients over the course of several hours, helping to prevent muscle wastage via catabolism, and helping to keep you in a constant anabolic state so that you are continuing to build muscle long after you take the protein. Then of course, you have the amino acids, the vitamins, the minerals, and the healthy fats. These in turn help to promote overall health and well-being, they increase energy levels, they boost the metabolism, and much more besides.

The Benefits of Plant-based Protein:

Muscle growth

Just like other forms of protein, this macronutrient is required for the growth, repair, and maintenance of muscle tissue. Without adequate amounts of protein each day, the body will struggle to maintain its current muscle mass percentages, and it will subsequently begin eating away at existing muscle tissue. These proteins give the body what it needs to grow and repair itself, allowing users to gradually increase their muscle mass levels.


One of the best things about this vegan protein blend is the fact that it is so convenient. Vegans often find it hard to get enough protein from whole food sources, which is why this supplement is so useful. One serving will provide upwards of 40g of protein, on average, helping to get you well on your way to your daily protein needs and requirements. Simply mix the powder with water, and you’re good to go.


Another very important benefit associated with all natural premium vegan protein blends is the fact that they are incredibly nutrient dense. Not only do they provide a complete amino acid profile, they are also rich in fibre, minerals, vitamins, and healthy fat sources. These nutrients boost immunity, they increase energy levels, they boost the metabolism, they improve major organ health, they provide brain and mental health benefits, and much more on top of that.

All natural

Another key benefit associated with all natural premium vegan protein blends is the fact that they are all natural, meaning they are organic, are GMO free, and are therefore free from pesticides, chemicals, artificial preservatives and additives, hormones, fertilizers, and other genetically modified organisms that have been linked to all kinds of ailments and health issues. The ingredients are premium, all natural, and are of the very finest quality, so you can rest assured that you are nourishing your body with ingredients that it needs, and that it will thrive upon.
