More about Raw Vegan Protein Powder
Protein is made up of amino acids, there are twenty amino acids that build protein within the body and these are called proteinogens. Adults and children require eight essential amino acids from food as we cannot produce these proteins, while babies require nine essential amino acids with the inclusion of histidine.
Eight essential amino acids and their main functions;
Valine, a branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) that works with the other two BCAAs, isoleucine and leucine, to promote normal growth, repair tissues, regulate blood sugar and provide energy
Isoleucine, increases endurance and aids in muscle repair as well as clotting, when injured.
Leucine, works with the amino acids isoleucine and valine to repair muscles, regulate blood sugar and increase energy levels. Further to aiding in the production of growth hormones and burning visceral fat
Phenylalanine, required for the normal functioning of the central nervous system, it balances mood and acts as an anti-depressant.
Methionine, required to produce antioxidant glutathione. Needed to produce amino acids, cysteine and taurine, that help the body eliminate toxins, build healthy tissue and promote cardiovascular health.
Threonine, promotes growth by maintaining the protein balance within the body.
Tryptophan, required for production of serotonin, vitamin B3 or niacin, and auxin
Lysine, involved in the production off antibodies for a strong, healthy immune system.
Unlike proteins that are derived from animal products, plant proteins do not increase your chances of chronic illness, but care must be taken to combine foods so that the body receives all eight essential amino acids. It is not necessary to eat all essential amino acids in one sitting as the body retains a ‘pool’ of amino acids over a 24 hour period that it can pull from.
Brown rice protein contains all eight essential amino acids, it is an antioxidant that prevents cell damage and fights free radicals further to regulating cholesterol and improving liver and heart function.
The peptides in brown rice reduce weight gain, reports have shown that Brown rice protein can be beneficial for diabetics as it significantly impacts the severity of blood sugar spikes and aids in regulating glucose levels.
Sprouted rice protein is hypoallergenic and easily digested, it is gluten and dairy free and has high levels of Vitamin D.
A study published by the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition proved that brown rice protein is as effective as whey protein in supplementing body composition and exercise performance, this is due to its high levels of Arginine, a BCAA that is crucial for building muscles.
Another study by the University of Tampa that was conducted over the course of eight weeks with experienced bodybuilders found that the results were the same for plant based proteins as animal based proteins. They focused on recovery and soreness, muscle growth and change in build and improvements in strength, the study concluded that Rice protein was beneficial for bodybuilders.
