With this year’s Veganuary well and truly underway, it’s important to remember that - contrary to what you might have heard - following a plant-based diet doesn’t mean your protein intake has to suffer - quite the opposite in fact.
There are many Vegan myths and statistics that are worth checking since not only are plants a great source of natural protein they are essential to help bring balance to your diet and body. Plant-based protein powder is no different.
Proven to be just as effective as other types of powders, Plant-Based Protein Powders are an alternative source of protein that also come with a whole lot of unexpected added benefits…
More protein per serving
It’s a bit of a misconception that vegan powders contain less protein than whey products - this isn’t true and certainly isn’t the case with our new vegan protein powder.
Packing an impressive 31g of protein per serving, if you're looking to maintain a lean physique or stack on some muscle as part of your vegan lifestyle, this shake is the one for you!
With super lean protein isolates sourced from Pea, Sunflower and Pumpkin, this blend is packed with nutrients to get the most from your workouts.
Packed full of nutrients
As you’re probably beginning to see, there’s a whole host of reasons why plant-based protein powders are so good for you - but one of the major ones is the amount of vitamins and minerals they contain.
First up we’ve got fibre. Plants are absolutely packed with it. Fibre is a vital part of a healthy diet, keeping our digestive systems running smoothly, maintaining a feeling of fullness after eating and contributing to good heart health.
With plants containing large amounts of the different types of fibre we need, plant-based protein powders naturally keep you feeling full while also keeping you regular. On top of this, our vegan blend also contains Digezyme - a blend of digestive enzymes that are great for your gut health and wellbeing.
And it doesn’t stop there. Plant-based protein powder also offers more of the other vitamins and minerals that are so important for a balanced diet.
Packed with antioxidants (our vegan protein powder contains Cinnamon Bark) and other vitamins that you just won’t get in animal protein alone, there are also tons of minerals that your body uses to keep it healthy and strong - and plant-based protein powders are a quick and easy way to get the nutrients you need.
Allergy free - and tastes great!
Although whey protein is really effective for building muscle, there are a growing number of people who suffer from allergies to whey, with it often causing gas or bloating for people with lactose intolerance.
People with gluten allergies can also suffer as protein powders often contain gluten in order to help you feel more full (although Supreme Nutrition’s whole range is gluten free).
So, if you’re experiencing any unwanted symptoms and wondering why, you should definitely give our vegan protein powder a go - as long as you don’t have a specific allergy to any of the ingredients.
No allergic reactions means you can focus on your goals and get your body feeling the way you want it to.
But all of this doesn’t mean that we’ve compromised on flavour. A common criticism of vegan protein shakes is that they don’t taste great, but we’ve put real effort into making our Vanilla Ice Cream flavour taste just like the real thing, meaning you actually look forward to drinking it!
Good for the environment
Okay, so outside of your own health, a big benefit for choosing a plant-based protein powder is the positive effect it has on the health of the planet.
Manufacturing plant-based protein powder requires less land, water, energy and other resources than for animal protein and there is much less waste too.
So, if you would like to create less of an impact on the earth, plant-based protein powder is a small step - but definitely one in the right direction!
