Pea Protein is a natural, vegetable-based protein powder derived from yellow peas (Pisum sativum). Yellow peas are more commonly known as "split peas" and are used extensively in food preparation such as in soups & purees.
Most commercially available protein powders are derived from soy, rice, eggs, or dairy, which are often problematic for those with allergic dietary concerns. Weâ€™ve chosen Pea Protein because it is a plant-based, hypoallergenic protein that yields a high biological value (65.4%). The BV is an accurate indicator of the biological activity of protein. It measures the actual amount of protein deposited per gram of protein absorbed. High BV proteins are a better choice for increased nitrogen retention, enhanced immunity and IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor stimulation. They are superior for reducing lean tissue loss from various wasting states than proteins with a low BV score.
Through a clever extraction and purification process, our Pea Protein is concentrated from the normal level of 6% in fresh peas to 90% protein content. This unique process produces a protein powder that is highly soluble and easy to digest. Pea Protein is ideal for vegans, offers an excellent nutritional profile, is free of gluten, lactose, and cholesterol.
Our pea protein isolate contains over 5 times the amount of Arginine as compared to whey protein isolate. Arginine, or L-arginine, is an amino acid that is needed to keep the keep the liver, skin, joints, and muscles healthy. Arginine helps strengthen the bodyâ€™s immune system, regulates hormones and blood sugar, and promotes male fertility. In addition, research has shown that this amino acid may improve circulation and treat impotence and heart disease. Large concentrations of arginine are found in the skin, and this amino acid plays a key role in the health of all the bodyâ€™s connective tissues, particularly the muscles. Arginine helps the body process both creatine, a natural substance that helps build muscle mass, and nitrogen, a chemical needed for muscle metabolism. Laboratory research suggests that arginine may help reduce body fat and speed up weight loss. Arginine has also been shown to help heal and repair damaged tissues, and thus may be beneficial to both athletes and those suffering from arthritis.
According to a new animal study from Canada, pea protein has shown promising results in reducing blood pressure and improving kidney health. Scientists from the University of Manitoba, found that rats fed pea protein hydrolysate experienced a 20% drop in blood pressure when compared to rats on a normal diet.
