You are about to read the second of a series of 2 two blog articles meant to guide our readers towards identifying their most appropriate protein source based on their dietary habits. In the two articles, we talk about 2 of our top protein products, the difference between them and how athletes can benefit from their use.
Athletes spend more energy than the average person. Their bodies need extra nutrients to recuperate from intense bodily activity. Protein plays a significant role in an athlete's eating plan as it helps strengthen and repair muscle tissue. For those who, for whatever reason, cannot tolerate dairy or soy-based proteins, or whose dietary choices demand the consumption of alternate protein sources, Hammer Nutrition's Organic Vegan Protein is the ideal solution!
ORGANIC VEGAN PROTEIN
Excellent for a post-workout protein boost, morning smoothie, or afternoon snack, Organic Vegan Protein is deliciously smooth-tasting, non-GMO, soy-free, and gluten-free. It possesses the following unique, 100% organic, plant-based proteins:
Organic Pea ProteinAn effortlessly digested protein with an ideal amino acid profile. It contains leucine, isoleucine, valine (the three BCAAs), lysine, arginine, and glutamine.
Organic Pumpkin ProteinPumpkin protein derives from nutrient-rich seeds. Pumpkin protein is a complete source rich in antioxidants. It is also generous in vitamin K and manganese, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, etc.
Organic Sacha InchiDerived from the South American Plukenetia Volubilis seeds, sacha inchi contains all nine essential amino acids. It is considered a complete protein source. It is also a rich source of essential omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.
Organic SpirulinaA microscopic unicellular alga, spirulina is a complete protein source. It has the highest protein concentration by weight of any food. Spirulina is full of vitamins and minerals, rich in enzymes and antioxidants and a potent source of chlorophyll and essential fatty acids. Spirulina is also considered a blood-building nutrient, primarily due to its polypeptide content (called phycocyanin), which helps maintain digestive system health by serving as a food/fuel source for beneficial intestinal flora.
Organic ChlorellaAnother single-celled alga and complete protein, loaded with chlorophyll and essential fatty acids. Chlorella is possibly the most vitamin-and-mineral-rich "green food" known, and it contains a complete B vitamin profile. Chlorella also has naturally occurring RNA and DNA for aiding in cellular development and restoration.
Scientific research has discovered many connections between soy consumption and lower rates of certain cancers (breast, prostate, stomach, lung, and colon). In China, medical researchers linked soymilk consumption to a 50% risk reduction for stomach and lung cancer.
