Plant Based Protein
While it’s true that protein is found in meat and fish, many vegetarian and vegan bodybuilders, athletes, and fitness fans want to obtain high levels of protein from alternative sources.
Plant based protein products fill this hole, and play a large part in helping non-meat eating sports men and women build and maintain lean body mass. At SCI-MX, we have formulated delicious, dairy-free and gluten-free plant protein supplements that can be a powerful tool in your training arsenal. Our own unique blend of plant proteins ensures you get what you need when training to help your muscles repair, all whilst keeping energy levels high and staving off cravings.
What is Plant Protein?
Plant protein is derived from sources other than meat and fish, such as soy and pea.
Soy protein holds high levels of amino acids, and similarly pea protein (extracted from the yellow pea) has a strong amino acid profile. Plant-based proteins are higher in L-arginine, L-glycine and BCAAs than their whey, milk or egg counterparts, and because there are no animal derivatives or any dairy or gluten, they make a great alternative for athletes with diary restrictions or intolerances.
Why take Plant Protein supplements?
If you wish to steer clear of ingredients like milk, egg, fish and meat/ gelatine and yet still want to increase your protein intake to support a new or improved fitness regime, plant protein is an excellent alternative.
At SCI-MX, we have developed a plant-based protein supplement that is suitable for use before and after training, or to kick-start or wind down the day. Each serving contains high levels of vitamins, nutrients and magnesium that can help reduce fatigue and boost energy, ideal for those with strenuous training regimes. The body needs high levels of protein to aid muscle recovery and repair, and this is especially true when traditional sources like meat and fish are eliminated from the diet. While meat substitutes, legumes and nuts are high in protein, they alone are not enough to provide the very high levels of protein that are needed to support efforts like cross-training, marathon running, weight lifting and all other forms of exercise.
