When choosing a protein powder supplement, it comes down to what is best for the individual. The best thing a consumer can do is make an informed decision. Knowledge is crucial when it comes to dietary supplements. One might be influenced to choose a protein powder based on advertisement, word of mouth, price, flavor, and ingredients. Luckily, our protein supplement, VePRO, has one of the cleanest ingredient lists on the market, great flavor, and excellent reviews.
VePRO is all natural, free of artificial flavors or dyes, and is 100% vegan. Each serving contains 100 calories and 20 grams of organic brown rice and pea protein. The majority of mainstream protein powders contain artificial sweeteners as this cuts manufacturing costs. Artificial sweeteners are avoided in all Protea Nutrition products as they are known to increase the risk of cancer. (1)
An organic superfood blend which includes organic spinach, kale, and spirulina is incorporated into VePRO which contributes to the nutrient profile by adding antioxidants. By choosing our protein supplement you are still getting the benefits of greens even if you miss them in a meal occasionally in your day-to-day routine. Vitamins and minerals are also added to make VePRO a well rounded protein supplement where the focus is on cellular health and not just a protein count. 3 important amino acids are added including L-leucine, L-isoleucine, and L-Valine also known as BCAAs.
With no artificial sweeteners, VePRO doesn’t leave a strange aftertaste and it’s not overly sweet. Flavored with all natural vanilla and real raw cocoa, both flavors are clean, light and very versatile. The consistency is smooth (not gritty) and blends well. You also receive 20 free recipes for protein smoothies, and treats with your purchase. It’s also a great option for those with a sensitive stomach who often have trouble with whey protein.
VePRO can be added to any diet or lifestyle. You don’t have to lift weights to incorporate a protein powder. In fact, a common misconception with protein supplements, is that they are only beneficial for those who weight train, and this is simply not true. Everyone needs protein, no matter how active they are or what they do for exercise. A 2019 meta-anaylsis concluded 0.8 g protein/kg body weight is needed per day for both men and women.(2)
A protein smoothie is a great way to get in extra nutrients with a small meal. Adding greens such as spinach or kale, chia seeds, fruit, and your favorite plant milk, makes a healthy drink that is great for overall health. You can also add VePRO to oatmeal, pancakes, and muffins – you can get creative!
