Most of today's meats and dairy products carry dangerous amounts of growth stimulant antibiotic and hormone contaminants. Plant proteins are free of those harmful substances. They can be used in place of animal protein but only if all the essential amino acids are present in the right combination. Nearly all plant proteins lack one or more essential amino acids or contain so little of one that it is as if the amino acid were absent. But a few plant proteins fare better. Pea protein ranks highly with an amino acid ratio roughly approximating human muscle. Spirulina protein and rice protein contain good amounts of all essential amino acids. Matches Human Muscle. By combining a variety of plant proteins in correct amounts and adding a few select free amino acids we created a pure vegetable protein with an amino acid ratio that surpasses albumin and whey proteins and is nearly equal to that of human muscle tissue. We call it PureGreen Protein. Non-GMO protein from pea rice spirulina and alfalfa are joined with four free amino acids (lysine methionine threonine and valine) to create the first all vegetable protein ideally balanced for human compatibility. Branched-Chain Amino Acids. Valine leucine and isoleucine are the branched-Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs). They are responsible for muscle synthesis and repair. 75% of all BCAAs ingested by infants go to muscle synthesis. Athletes need them too for muscle building and endurance. BCAAs can be consumed for fuel during prolonged exercise. As they are lost more tryptophan metabolites enter the brain thereby raising serotonin levels. Elevated serotonin during exercise creates a sense of fatigue. Supplemental BCAAs may reduce perceived exertion and mental fatigue during prolonged exercise by supporting normal BCAA: tryptophan ratios thereby limiting increased synthesis of serotonin in the brain.

Review 1 for Vibrant Health PureGreen Protein™ Version 2.0 Chocolate -- 17.23 oz
Tastes great in a smoothie
August 20, 2014
"This honestly tastes very pleasant when you follow the smoothie recipe on the side of the container with frozen banana and almond milk. The protein is very high in it and is well worth the money if you are vegetarian and need to get protein in."

"Sometimes these good-for-us protein powders don't always have the most wonderful flavor. This one has a delicious chocolate flavor for those times when it's best to have an easy to mix, protein powder without adding additional ingredients. I prefer a vanilla, or unflavored powder for a morning smoothie when I'm adding frozen fruit. This chocolate flavor is wonderful by itself mixed in a glass, or with a frozen banana added to the blender for a milkshake! I'm ordering more today!"
