Is Pea Protein Right for You?
If you've just started using protein or are looking into your options, you might have some questions about which one to choose. After all, there are many types of protein powders and supplements. Two of the most popular types are whey powder and pea protein. Here are the benefits of using protein supplements as well as the differences between two types (pea and whey) to help you choose the best one for you:
Why protein supplements?
There are many benefits to supplementing your diet with protein shakes. For starters, bodybuilders, very active people and athletes need extra protein to keep their bodies going. Protein also helps build muscle. During strength training and other endurance workouts, muscle tissue is broken down, but ingesting protein no more than 30 minutes after working out is important in helping muscles to repair and recover. Many times, the easiest way to do that is to whip up a quick protein shake in the blender or just mix up a scoop or two of protein powder with any liquid of your choice.
For people who don't eat enough protein in their daily diets - such as vegans - protein supplements are a great way to ensure they get enough to keep their body energized and functioning properly. This is especially great on busy days when there isn't much time to cook. There is also some evidence that certain protein supplements are good for overall immune health, and even weight loss by reducing hunger.
People who don't have milk allergies often choose whey protein powders. These are good because they contain high levels of branched-chain amino acids which, when combined with intense exercise, are exceptionally good at helping to prevent muscle breakdown and facilitate post-workout recovery. Whey powders often contain the milk-product casein - a slow-digesting form of protein - which provides your cells with a steady supply of energy, a boon during extended workouts.
With the development of pea protein, vegans, vegetarians and those with restricted diets due to allergies can experience the full benefits of a protein powder. Choose a supplement like Naturade Pea Protein, which is excellent because it offers nine essential amino acids. It's also dairy- and soy-free, easily digestible and highly soluble. It's also good for weight loss and muscle-building.
Reduce Sugar Cravings with Pea Protein
If you've got a major sweet tooth, keeping candy bars, cake, cookies and ice cream out of your diet can be extra difficult. While everything in moderation is key, simply replacing some of your favorite sweets with a food that's a bit more healthy for you can make all the difference. So, instead of enjoying an after-dinner milkshake this Friday night, why not treat yourself to a Naturade Pea Protein shake?
What's Good Inside
The main ingredient in Naturade Pea Protein is – you guessed it – peas! The protein is made from yellow peas, more commonly known as split peas. Even if you've never been a fan of split pea soup, it's likely that you'll love this protein shake mix. This drink is as tasty as you'd expect to find a shake at a local soda fountain. In addition to its sweet, all-natural taste, Pea Protein is also chock-full of essential amino acids – those amino acids that our bodies don't naturally produce, and must be part of our diet.
What's Left Out
Sometimes, what's left out of the ingredients is just as important as what is included in them. Naturade's Pea Protein contains no aspartame. Often sold under the names NutraSweet or Equal, aspartame is an artificial sweetener that is 200 times more sweet than natural sugar. However, several studies have linked the substance to several diseases, including cancer, diabetes and even birth defects.
If you're lactose intolerant or allergic to gluten or soy, you're also in luck with these shakes – this protein mix is completely void of soy, dairy and gluten, and is free of cholesterol, so feel free to drink up! It's considered hypoallergenic – and honestly, how many foods can claim that?
Here are a few other things that you won't find in Pea Protein:
- No animal products. Pea Protein is completely plant-based, so whether you're vegan, vegetarian, or just like to limit your meat intake, this drink will help boost your daily protein.
- No GMOs. Although the word is still out as to whether GMOs are safe for human consumption, Naturade has made its own verdict and uses only non-GMO peas in its recipe.
- No colors or preservatives. The rich taste of Pea Protein is completely natural, right down to its color.
