Updated protein blend with 30g complete protein, 6g BCAAs and 6g glutamine
We went back to basics and recreated the protein blend for new Vega Sport Performance Protein. Many combinations of plant-based protein powders were experimented with to find the blend that had the best amino acid profile, texture and taste. Based on your feedback, SaviSeed and sprouted whole grain brown rice proteins were swapped for two new proteins: pumpkin seed and organic sunflower seed proteins. Now you get 20% more protein, BCAAs and glutamine, all naturally occurring from the blend of pea protein, pumpkin seed protein, organic sunflower seed protein and alfalfa protein.
Hello, performance Ingredients!
Vega Sport Performance Protein is now formulated with effective amounts of performance ingredients: turmeric, tart cherry and probiotics.
Turmeric contains curcumin, an antioxidantHealth Canada. (2010). Natural Health Products Database Monograph: Turmeric-oral. Accessed 5/20/13 from http://webprod.hc-sc.gc.ca/nhpid-bdipsn/monoReq.do?id=216&lang=eng to support inflammation management post-workout. Black pepper is added to Vega Sport Performance Protein to increase absorption of curcumin.Panahi Y, et al.(2015). Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects of curcuminoid-piperine combination in subjects with metabolic syndrome: A randomized controlled trial and an updated meta-analysis. Clinical Nutrition.
- Tart Cherry
Tart cherries are a rich source of antioxidants. Tart cherry juice appears to support recovery following strenuous endurance exercise by reducing inflammation, and aiding in the recovery of muscle function.Howatson G et al.(2010). Influence of tart cherry juice on indices of recovery following marathon running Scandinavian Journal of Medicine & Science in Sports. 20: 843–852
Probiotics are important part of an athlete’s recovery strategy and reduce your rate of recovery.
