Organic Pea Protein PowderPea Protein is quickly becoming the top choice for athletes looking to build muscle or for vegetarians who want to add protein without soy or diary.
Pea protein is a complete protein, which means it contains all nine of the essential amino acids — including branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs)— that you need to consume to effectively build muscle. That’s not true of many other plant-based options such as rice.
Pea protein has about three times more amino acid arginine than whey.Arginine may not be a BCAA, but it’s essential to building muscle and may explain why pea protein does such a good job at boosting muscle gains.
Pea Protein lowers levels of the hunger hormone ghrelin which your stomach secretes when it's empty to tell your brain that you're hungry. The peptides created by pea protein slow the emptying of your stomach and subsequent secretion of ghrelin, which helps you feel full for longer.
Pea protein also has a high Lysine content. Lysine cannot be made in the body and must therefore be consumed through the diet. Lysine is the precursor of carnitine, the molecule responsible for converting fatty acids into energy and helping to lower cholesterol. Lysine also appears to help absorb calcium and plays an important role in the formation of collagen — the building block of connective tissue such as bones, cartilage, skin, and tendons. It supports the normal growth and development of children and plays a role in the maintenance of a healthy immune system.
Pea protein can be used in either hot or cold recipes. Heat will not destroy the protein; it simply denatures the protein, which means the chemical structure changes (like when eggs turn solid as they are cooked). As long as what you are cooking/baking is not burned or overcooked, the protein is still usable by the body. So feel free to add pea protein to your next batch of pancakes or vegetarian casseroles.
