Aging adults may benefit from dietary protein intake at 1.0 to 1.5 grams per kilogram per day,1,2,3 which is above the recommended daily allowance (RDA), in order to preserve lean muscle mass and support muscle-building response to exercise.1
The International Society of Sports Nutrition recommends that athletes may benefit from consuming 1.2 to 2 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight to support metabolic processes and repair.4
Athletes with glucose5 and weight-management6 challenges may benefit from protein supplementation. Satiety is part of the body’s complex system of appetite control and is involved in limiting energy intake.7 In randomized trials, pea protein was found to have similar satiating effects and reduced energy intake to the same degree as animal-derived whey protein.8,9 One to three servings of Veg-E Complete Pro Vanilla provides a source of complete plant-based protein in the range where increased satiety has been reported.
Protein also plays an important role in cellular function and enzyme action while also supporting hair, skin, and nails.*
The blend of organic pea protein, organic pumpkin seed protein, and organic sesame seed protein is a valuable source of several amino acids, including the nine essential amino acids.
The human body cannot create essential amino acids, so they must be consumed through the diet. These products contain all nine essential amino acids. The essential amino acids leucine, isoleucine, and valine are considered branched-chain amino acids due to a particular side chain in their chemical structure. They are important for protein synthesis, recovery, and metabolic function.
Most plant proteins contain insufficient levels of one or more essential amino acids. By pairing plant proteins together, they complement each other and bridge the gap that the other plant protein is lacking.
Veg-E Complete Pro Vanilla provides 15 grams of protein in a proprietary vegan, organic protein blend.
