Living Traditionally's Organic Pea Protein Powder is a 100% organic, vegan protein powder. Pea protein powder is naturally hypoallergenic as it is free of dairy, eggs and soy. It is also easily digestible and absorbable because it contains no starch or fiber. Pea protein is a complete protein as it contains all 9 essential amino acids (though low on methionine) and has a similar amount of BCAA's (Branched Chain Amino Acids) as whey protein powder...however, pea protein actually has 3X the amount of the amino acid L-Arginine as whey protein.
Pea protein powder also has clinically shown to increase weight loss and improve heart health. Pea protein is truly a fantastic vegan source of high quality, digestible protein, which is essential for strong muscles, bones and body tissue.
Vegan Protein and Amino Acids: Pea protein powder is naturally vegan. It does not contain dairy or eggs. It is made with 100% organic yellow peas. It is naturally high in Iron and contains about 40-50% of the daily recommended amount of Magnesium.
Builds Muscle & Strong Bones: Protein and amino acids are essential for strong muscles and bones. Pea protein is a complete protein source with all 9-Essential Amino Acids (low on methionine) and BCAA'S (Branched Chain Amino Acids). It is also very high in non-essential amino acids, especially L-Arginine (which is essential for building muscle mass). According to the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition, Pea protein powder is just as effective at building muscle mass as dairy based protein powders (including whey protein powder). Living Traditionally Protein Powder is also easily and quickly digestible. Because optimum muscle growth requires protein within 30 minutes of working out, a quick uptake by your body of the protein is essential for feeding muscle growth.
Weight Loss: Pea protein is an effective supplement for promoting weight loss. Not only will you gain more muscle (and muscle burns fat), but you will also be filled up and less susceptible to snacking in between meals. Pea protein also increases metabolism, which will help your body burn fat even while at rest. Lastly, Pea protein effectively controls blood sugar levels.
Heart Health: Pea protein does not contain cholesterol or saturate fat. It is a ideal protein source for those trying to lower their cholesterol levels while not giving up sufficient levels of protein and amino acids. Pea protein has also been shown to reduce blood pressure.
