About Vega

You are what you eat. And what you don't.
Told from the onset that a plant-based diet wouldn't cut it on the professional Ironman circuit, Brendan Brazier's nutritional journey as an uninformed plant-powered endurance athlete began with reduced energy levels and the need to eat constantly.

But Brendan's stubborn curiosity persevered and after years of research and experimentation, he discovered what sets a top athlete's performance apart from the competition isn't training or natural ability alone. A big difference is nutrition. After intense study, Brendan created a plant-based, whole food diet that helped him recover faster and train harder - propelling him to become a top professional Ironman triathlete.

Constantly on the road competing, Brendan was challenged by both a lack of time and kitchen space to prepare the carefully composed, nutrient-dense, clean, plant-based meals that gave him his edge. Deep down, he knew there had to be an easier way to get nutrition on-the-go. And he was right. Over time, Brendan's vision led to the formulation of the original all-in-one nutritional shake - now known as Vega One - which ultimately inspired the creation of the complete award-winning Vega line of nutritional supplements.

Vega Guiding Principles for a Raw, Whole Food, Alkaline, Plant-Based Diet

Quite often the simplest solution is the best one. Over the past 50 years, however, Western culture has managed to complicate our approach to diet and its relation to health. Obesity and malnourishment exist simultaneously, while the over-consumption of calorie-rich but nutrient-poor foods drains our energy. To make matters worse, we treat obesity with drugs and fad diets, and combat fatigue with refined carbohydrates, sugar and caffeine. These are short-term solutions that eventually render us energy depleted, over-stimulated, chronically stressed and vulnerable to illness and premature aging.

What can we do to address this problem? Many health experts now believe the solution is to consume primarily plant-based, whole foods-pure and simple as nature intended. Whole foods support all the requirements of a healthy body system, from absorption to elimination.

The challenge with whole foods has always been their relative inconvenience to prepare, compared to the gamut of fast food offerings so readily available to us. Born of the belief that one should not have to compromise between whole food goodness and fast food convenience, Vega products are developed with the following principles in mind:

Plant-based whole foods are the true future of optimal health
"Eat your fruits and vegetables" is one of the most tried and true recommendations for a healthy diet. Plant-based foods are rich in antioxidants, essential vitamins and minerals, enzymes, fiber and phytonutrients. Countless studies support their many health benefits. Vega products are made exclusively from plant-based, whole food ingredients.

Alkaline-forming, plant-based whole foods help build a platform for optimal health
Studies have shown a linkage between an alkaline-forming diet and accelerated growth, development and metabolism1, helping to provide a platform upon which optimal health can be built. In stark contrast to processed food, alkaline-forming foods are nearly exclusively found in the vegetable and fruit groups2 (research has also shown that it is possible to efficiently modify urine pH by diet alone3). Vega products are alkaline-forming2 and 100% plant-based.

Nutrient density is more important than calories
Once your body is supplied with the nourishment it needs, cravings will cease. Consuming nutrient-dense, whole foods is a healthy way to naturally reduce caloric intake, resulting in the creation of a stronger, leaner body. Vega creates products that are nutrient dense, yet relatively low in calories.

What you eat should provide energy, not drain it
Ease of nutrient assimilation is a key benefit of wholesome, natural food. The less energy the body must spend on digestion and assimilation, the more energy it will retain. Enzyme-rich to help with efficient digestion, Vega products offer superior net energy gain.

What you eat should energize through nourishment, not stimulation
Refined foods, refined sugar and caffeine lend temporary energy by stimulating the adrenal glands, creating a brief increase in energy levels but eventually resulting in fatigue. On a day-to-day basis, Vega One, Energizing Smoothie and Vibrancy bars offer a balance of Omega-3, fiber and low-glycemic carbohydrates to provide a constant, enduring supply of energy through nourishment, not stimulation.

For athletes, the Vega Sport system features products with a judicious balance of minimally-refined carbohydrates and gentler sources of caffeine to provide targeted stimulation to fuel activity, while being mindful of post-workout recovery and long-term wellness.
Minimize exposure to sensitivity-aggravating ingredients

Many people-whether they know it or not-have sensitivities to ingredients that are abundant in the modern, processed food diet. These sensitivities can manifest as headaches, mild flu-like symptoms, low energy, and difficulty shedding body fat. Vega products are dairy, gluten and soy free, and contain no artificial flavours, colours or sweeteners.

It is possible to rebuild a younger-feeling body
People who exercise regularly break down cellular tissue during every workout. What you eat serves as the building blocks for cellular restoration. Poor-quality construction materials result in poor-quality structures, and the converse is also true. You literally are what you eat! If regular exercise puts your body in perpetual regeneration mode, you want to give it the highest quality building materials available so your body can rebuild a stronger, younger-feeling version of you.

The nutrient-dense, high net-gain, alkaline-forming nutrition found in plant-based whole foods and superior natural health products like those offered by Vega is truly the best building material available for your body.

What Sustainability Means to Vega

At Vega, they want to change the world. Their passion for plant-based nutrition is as much about empowering health as it is about supporting the health of our planet. But sustainability isn't just about what goes into their products-sustainability must be part of everything they do.

They want to be a company that leaves a net zero carbon footprint. There are no silver bullets-in life, or on Vega's Journey to Zero-but every choice they make matters. Vega lives their commitment to constant improvement by pursuing perfection, one small change at a time.

Their ingredients, packaging, office, suppliers-each of these represents an opportunity to innovate, improve, and bring Vega closer to their goal - the Journey to Zero.

Journey To Zero

It's one thing to say you want to be a company that leaves a net-zero carbon footprint. It's quite another to take real actions toward that goal. Journey to Zero is Vega's name for their process of taking actions and being accountable to this goal. You can't improve what you don't measure. And because Vega means business when it comes to the planet, they treat their carbon footprint as a real indicator of their performance.

Every small change they make is a step on their Journey to Zero-and they take each of them so seriously that they've woven this process of making steps on this journey through the fabric of everything they do:

In 2009, Vega conducted a complete corporate environmental sustainability audit to assess their carbon footprint. They're actively using the results of this audit-Vega's Sustainability Action Plan-to guide their choices on the Journey to Zero.

Since their initial audit, they've made several carbon-reducing changes as part of their Sustainability Action Plan, including transitioning Vega's headquarters to 100% wind-power (via Bullfrog Power), and making strategic operations and logistics improvements.

After making many changes based on their Sustainability Action Plan, they recently reassessed several areas highlighted in their initial audit, comparing the 2012 numbers to their 2009 numbers. The result of Vega's changes? An impressive 46.4% reduction in their carbon footprint.

While they've taken many successful steps on the Journey to Zero, their audit revealed opportunities for other changes they can make to further reduce their carbon footprint. For example, the 2012 numbers showed that packaging materials account for 71% of Vega's carbon footprint-this significant statistic inspired their move to transitioning to 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles, beginning in late 2013.

Part of the mission at Vega is to live their commitment to constant improvement by pursuing perfection, one small change at a time. That means they'll be taking actions, measuring the impact, and planning their next steps on the Journey to Zero for as long as they're here to make those steps.

Vega's passion for clean, plant-based nutrition that's good for your body and fuels your healthy, active life isn't the only reason Vega products are exclusively plant-based-it's also a reflection of their commitment to the planet.

Vega's 100% PCR HDPE plastic bottles are still fully recyclable.

Doing Business Sustainably
Every element of Vega's business operations holds opportunity to make more sustainable choices. By choosing manufacturing partners located close to their distribution centers, finished Vega products-heavier and much larger in volume once packaged than the raw materials used to make them-don't have to travel as far before they can be shipped to customers.

I was already familiar with vega smoothies but found them much cheaper through Lucky V. I have lost a lot of weight by substituting a smoothy for a meal and wanted to continue to do so. The mix has 2 servings of veggies and 15g of protein while being low in carbs plus it's vegan which I'm not (merely vegetarian), so I mix this with kefir and milk and it tastes pretty dam good and it curbs hunger.
