Nowadays, pea protein powder is becoming a fast favorite for gym-goers and health-conscious people alike — not only is it gluten-free and dairy-free, but it’s been proven to be spectacular for our health!
1. Pea Protein Powder Is Hypoallergenic
Pea, Pumpkin Seed, Brown Rice, or even Hemp Protein Powder does not have any allergenic ingredients. This makes it a great protein to rotate into our routine to decrease the risk of developing an allergy to the other shakes we enjoy without sacrificing any benefits.
If some people cannot ever take animal based protein powders due to a pre-existing allergy or intolerance, our pea protein powder is absolutely a great choice to enjoy regularly.
2. Pea Protein Powder Is Rich In Amino Acids
Studies have shown that a diet rich in branched chain amino acids can help keep our body in a muscle building state throughout the day, decrease belly fat, keep our full longer between meals, energize our workouts, and much more.
Our plant protein powders are packed with amino acids. Every scoop of pea protein powder has about 5 grams of branched chain amino acids. Taking 1-2 shakes daily will help you get the extra amino acids our body needs to build muscle, lose fat, and stay healthy.
3. Pea Protein Powder Is Easily Digested
Pea protein is well-famous for its digestibility. This benefits us in a few ways. One is that it isn’t likely to make us feel gassy or bloated after drinking a shake. Another benefit is that the amino acids it contains are easily absorbed and put to work. The same can’t be said for other plant based proteins like soy which is difficult to digest and not utilized by our body nearly as well.
4. Pea Protein Is 100% Vegan
If some of us or our friends are a vegetarian or vegan or just looking for an animal free protein to eat daily, our pea protein powder is absolutely a good choice. Eating an exclusively plant-based diet can be incredibly satisfying and tasty—especially with our healthy plant protein powders.
5. Pea Protein Powder Is Low In Carbohydrates
If some of us follow a low carbohydrate diet we do not have to worry about pea protein powders ruining our diet. Every scoop has about 2 grams of carbohydrates, making it suitable to take when we’re limiting carbs.
We can also get about 2 grams of fiber per scoop which limits the blood sugar stimulating effects on the carbs that are in every shake.
6. Pea Protein Powder Mixes Easily In Soup or Shakes
There’s nothing worse than the protein powder that doesn’t mix, no matter how hard the users blend or shake it up. Due to the way it’s processed our high quality pea protein powder doesn’t have this problem. It can mix easliy in soup or shakes.
