Protein is an essential food source with important health benefits, including:
- Promotes a leaner, healthier body: Studies suggest protein can improve lean body mass, enhance satiety and increase thermogenesis. It's also shown to boost immunity.
- Provides easier weight management: Higher protein diets are associated with more successful weight management.
- The American College of Sports Medicine and American Dietetic Association joint position statement contends that physically active adults need 50-100% more protein.
Why include a Vegan-based protein source?
- Typical animal-based protein sources can be high in calories and saturated fats, additives and preservatives (ie: meat and dairy sources).
- Higher intake of plant-based proteins (ie: in Asian nations) has been linked to better health. (The China Study, Campbell, et al).
- Vegan, plant-based protein sources contain essential amino acids and can be easier to digest versus other proteins.
- The body can develop intolerances to foods eaten repeatedly – including protein. This is why ‘cycling’ protein sources (animal and vegan) is recommended by health experts such as Dr. John Berardi.
Whether you are vegetarian or not, trust Vegan proteins+ and its complete, all-natural formula to help you achieve a healthier, leaner body– naturally.

Is Vegan Proteins+ acidic or alkaline?
The PRAL of Vegan proteins+ has not been measured, although as with all pure protein supplements (or high protein foods) is likely to be slightly acidic. To ensure you compensate for all the acidic foods in your life (as many are healthful too), but sure to take greens+ daily, as our research shows not only is greens+ low PRAL (therefore alkanalizing), but that it does reduce body acidity in humans!
