From allergies and dietary restrictions to ethical rationale, there are many reasons why our customers seek out Golden Era Nutrition Vegan Protein. We are here to support the pursuit of your health and fitness goals without help from animal products, and in today’s article, we’re giving you insight into our organic vegan protein blend formula. Read on to learn more, and order our Vegan Protein today to support your plant-based health goals.
The first ingredient in our Vegan Protein blend is organic pea protein. Pea protein is typically extracted from yellow peas, also known as split peas, and offers a high-quality protein that is gluten-free, dairy-free, and hypoallergenic. Pea protein is generally well tolerated and doesn’t cause the gassiness or bloating that some experience when eating complete peas. Among plant-based proteins, organic pea protein is one of the easiest to digest.
Until the recent growing interest in plant-based proteins, most people would never have considered the small green vegetable as a helpful dietary supplement. In fact, peas are a complete protein, which means that our organic pea protein contains all nine essential amino acids. It is a great source of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), although it is low in the essential amino acid methionine, and contains high levels of iron.
We chose pea protein to be a part of our organic vegan protein blend because it offers many benefits, not only helping with muscle growth, appetite, and weight loss, but also with heart health and cholesterol levels. Among its drawbacks, you have heard that pea protein can be high in sodium. We encourage you to check the nutrition label on our Vegan Protein to ensure it’s the right choice for your health needs. Overall, Golden Era Nutrition loves organic pea protein because it is a clean and healthy option for our high-protein supplement!
Flaxseeds are small oil seeds that are found in the Middle East. They have recently gained popularity as a superfood, and their nutritional value is why Golden Era Nutrition included flaxseed protein in our organic vegan protein blend.
Flaxseeds are 18% protein rich in amino acids such as arginine, aspartic acid, and glutamic acid. They lack lysine, which makes flaxseeds an incomplete protein, but their amino acid profile is similar to soybeans.
Flaxseeds are also a good source of vitamins, minerals, and the “good” fat, alpha-linoleic acid. They are known to help lower blood pressure and cholesterol for better heart health, and flaxseeds can also help improve your digestive health with plenty of dietary fiber.
Quinoa (pronounced KEEN-wa) is considered a whole grain, although it is, in reality, more like a seed. It has been used throughout South America for centuries, gaining popularity similar to flaxseeds when it became considered a “superfood.”
Like peas, quinoa is a complete protein offering all nine essential amino acids, and it is exceptionally high in lysine, methionine, and histidine. It offers protein content similar to casein, a dairy-based product. Quinoa is also high in important nutrients like magnesium, iron, calcium, and more, which is why the team here at Golden Era Nutrition thought it was an important addition to our organic vegan protein blend.
Last but not least, Golden Era Nutrition Vegan Protein includes pumpkin seed protein. Pumpkin seeds, also known as pepitas, are typically green and oval-shaped, housed within a hard white shell. They are hypoallergenic, with no gluten, dairy, or soy.
Aside from offering further protein value, pumpkin seeds are also high in antioxidants such as carotenoids and vitamin E. Antioxidants help reduce free radicals within your body to fight aging and several diseases. These seeds are high in dietary fiber and can lower blood sugar levels, and they are one of the best natural sources of magnesium, an element most Americans don’t include enough of in their diets.
