A complete multi-source, alkaline-forming, plant-based protein powder blend that is gluten-free and vegan, which features 5,500mg of BCAAs and 5,000mg of glutamine per serving. The recent innovation to Vega Sport Performance Protein comes from the addition of SaviSeed (sacha inchi) protein, a rich, plant-based source of the amino acid tryptophan. Tryptophan is a key component of serotonin production. Serotonin is the feel good hormone that helps with the mental aspect of recovery, so you’ll keep the drive alive and be motivated to train again. Take Vega Sport Performance Protein within 30 to 90 minutes of your workout or throughout the day to meet your individual protein needs to recharge and repair so you can do it all again, sooner.
The Vega Sport Performance Protein is formulated to:
BCAAs (branched chain amino acids) are essential amino acids (L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, and L-Valine), which cannot be made by your body and must be eaten. BCAAs are metabolized in muscle tissue, rather than in your liver, so they can be used faster. BCAAs help to transition your body from a catabolic (breaking down muscle) to anabolic (building muscle) stage after exercise.
Complete Plant Based Protein Blend
Sprouted whole grain brown rice, pea, alfalfa, and SaviSeed protein combine to create 25 grams of complete protein with a balanced amino acid profile.
Glutamine is an amino acid which helps to repair and build muscle cells after exercise. It is also a component of digestive and immune system health.
Recharge and repair so you can do it all again, sooner. Vega Sport Performance Protein repairs and builds muscle tissue to assist in recovery.
Consuming protein, especially branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) after a workout helps your body to rebuild muscle, and reduces recovery time. With a reduced recovery time, you’ll be able to push harder and train more often, naturally building strength.
Build and repair muscle
Besides recovering faster, in order to build strength you have to repair and rebuild your muscle. Training breaks down muscle—you have to break down muscle to build it stronger.
Leucine, isoleucine and valine are branched chain amino acids (BCAA) which act as signaling molecules to stimulate protein synthesis after exercise. These amino acids aid in transitioning your body from a catabolic (breaking down of muscle during exercise) to an anabolic (repair and rebuild) state. Glutamine is an additional amino acid which repairs muscle cells after exercise. Vega Sport Performance Protein contains 25 grams complete protein and 5,000 mg each of both BCAAs and L-glutamine.
Reduce recovery time
Beyond repairing muscle and building strength, immune function is another element of recovery. Vega Sport Performance Protein contains the amino acid L-Glutamine which is fuel for immune cells. Since intense exercise reduces glutamine in your blood, consuming 5,000 mg of glutamine in Vega Sport Performance Protein after exercise can help to support your immune system.
