Organic Pea Protein 

"dairy-free, vegan power and whey strong!"

Our clients love our Organic Pea protein bars and smoothies! They are dairy-free and are an amazing protein option for vegans, non-vegans and individuals with difficulty digesting lactose. Pea Protein delivers a strong source of protein and gives you what you need for muscle recovery after exercise. Pea protein is a complete protein and contains all nine essential amino acids and includes branched chain amino acids (BCAA's) that the body needs to build muscle.(1) Pea protein has approximately three times more of the amino acid arginine than whey protein. The amino acid arginine is also found in pea protein.  Although arginine is not BCAA, it's  essential to building muscle, and may be a contributing factor to improve muscle gains in men. A study of men ages 18- 35 was conducted in 2015 in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition. (2) They found that combing pea protein with weight lifting increased their biceps size the same as whey protein!
