Balance Plant Protein sets a high standard with a quality blend of pea protein isolate, chia protein, sacha inchi and organic rice protein. Sacha inchi protein powder is a product made from the nut of the sacha inchi plant and offers a complementary amino acid profile. Sacha Inchi seed protein is made by carefully processing the nut to remove the oil, which leaves a bioavailable protein rich in naturally occurring amino acids. Sacha inchi has a full amino acid profile, containing the 9 essential amino acids necessary for human health, as well as building, repairing and maintaining muscle.
This finely-balanced selection of protein sources delivers a vegan-friendly protein powder that is easily digestible and makes for a great alternative to whey proteins for lean muscle growth and recovery, or to support general health. This product contains a full complement of muscle-feeding amino acids, including added glutamine, and a scientifically proven 2:1:1 ratio of L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine to L-Valine. This means Balance Plant Protein can rival any other vegan protein powder on the market.
Balance Plant Protein Vanilla, Chocolate and Berry flavour are all dairy free products that are soy free and formulated without gluten. They contains no artificial additives, such as flavours, preservatives or sweeteners and is enriched with the digestive enzymes bromelains and papain. These enzymes are derived from the pineapple core and green paw paw, respectively, and help us to digest protein, which improves the bioavailability.
Balance Plant Protein ensures that you need not suffer any nutritonal disadvantage from switching to a plant-based product, as it is loaded with muscle protein synthesis-inducing essential amino acids. Take it after exercise with a carbohydrate source to enhance recovery, between meals as a nutritious snack, or to boost a low-protein meal1,2.
Balance Plant Protein Benefits
Plant protein is alkalising, whilst animal-based protein powders are acidifying. Plant protein powders are also a lot less likely to cause unwanted immune reactions, such as allergies and sensitivities. As lactose is only found in milk, all 100% vegan-friendly plant protein powders are suitable for people with lactose intolerance. Plant proteins also tend to contain more fibre and minerals compared to animal-based products.
Is Plant Protein Better than Whey Protein?
Whey protein has the highest biological value of any protein yet tested. However, new scintific research is demonstrating that rice and pea proteins are able to support performance, recovery and body composition just as well as whey protein. Plant protein is better for people with dairy allergies or intolerances or for anyone following an alkaline or plant-based eating plan.
How to Use Balance Plant Protein
Add 30g (1 level scoop) of Balance Plant Protein powder to 350ml of cold water or liquid of your choice, shake and consume immediately. For best results use 60-90 prior to exercise and within 30 minutes post-training. This vegan protein can also be added to other foods to increase protein content. Consume up to 3 serves per day.
