Pea protein is the best option for vegetarians and vegans. It is also an excellent alternative for those who want to reduce the consumption of animal products in their diet.
The pea (Pisum sativum L.) is an easily-digestible legume, rich in high quality protein. In addition, pea protein contains all the essential amino acids our body cannot synthesize, is low in fat, and contains fiber.
Pea protein also provides a full sensation after consumption, and thus helps to reduce total food intake.
Our organic pea protein has the highest degree of purity attainable, ensuring top quality, efficient nutrition!
Proteins are the major structural components of muscle fiber and other body tissues. Thus, the main role of proteins obtained through diet is their use in different anabolic processes* (1), and their consumption provides energy during exercise and increases muscle protein synthesis (2).
There are animal and vegetable sources of protein. Among vegetable proteins, legumes stand out (family Leguminosae, subfamily Papilionoideas), as they provide a high-quality protein containing, among other components, the amino acid lysine, an essential amino acid that can only be obtained through proper diet.
Among the legume family, we find the pea plant (Pisum sativum L.), an annual herbaceous plant native to Central Asia and the Middle East, where it has been cultivated for thousands of years. Its edible seed is known as the pea, rich in protein, fiber, carotenoids (lutein and zeaxanthin), vitamins (C, thiamine, niacin and folate) and minerals (phosphorus and iron) (3). Pea protein also contains branched-chain amino acids (BCAA), leucine, isoleucine and valine, involved in protein synthesis in muscle.
* Anabolism: set of metabolic processes for synthesis of complex molecules from simpler ones.
The World Health Organization recommends a daily intake of 0.8 g of protein per kilo of weight for a healthy adult (4). That is, an adult weighing 70 kg should consume 56 g of protein a day. Regarding the protein source itself, animal protein is often accompanied by saturated fats, so it is preferable that at least 50% of the proteins are of vegetable origin (such as pea protein). Vegetable protein sources provide many nutrients, such as fiber and phytochemical compounds (1). Pea protein also provides a full sensation after consumption, and thus helps to reduce total food intake (5).
1 serving (30 g) per day. Mix with water, juice, smoothies or milk. You can also pea protein powder in meals.
Pea protein is a vegan alternative to whey protein. A study has shown that eating pea protein with a purity of 85%, combined with resistance training, causes increased muscle mass comparable to that of whey protein, and greater than a control placebo. The study's authors also suggested the use of pea protein to maintain muscle mass in the elderly (6).
Finally, several studies have shown a positive effect from the consumption of vegetable protein. For example, a study has linked the intake of plant proteins in postmenopausal women with a decreased risk of gallbladder problems (7). Moreover, another study also conducted in this population group suggested that increased consumption of vegetable protein, and a decrease in animal protein intake, may decrease bone loss and risk of hip fracture (8).
