Lean and Healthy Vanilla Lifestyle Shake is a natural pea protein isolate that offers a high level of functionality and nutritional benefits. Lean and Healthy Vanilla is a true vegan protein which has high bioavailability and excellent digestibility. * The raw materials, North American grown yellow peas, are not genetically modified (non-GMO) and are produced with a natural fermentation process which uses no chemical solvents.
Has an excellent array of amino acids, including high levels of BCAAs (branched chain amino acids leucine, isoleucine, and valine). While its amino acid profile is similar to whey protein, it is particularly high in arginine, lysine, and phenylalanine. Its well-balanced profile fulfills the essential amino acid requirements outlined by the World Health Organization for adults.
Easily digestible, giving it a distinct advantage over other vegetable protein isolates, as it does not contain the commonly occurring anti-nutritional factors of other legumes (i.e., soy), mainly trypsin inhibitors, phytates, lectins, tannins, and α-galactocides. (The presence of high levels of these anti-nutritional factors can cause substantial reductions in protein digestibility.)
As pea protein has ACE inhibitory activity, it may have a positive effect on the maintenance of normal blood pressure levels. It has also been shown, in rat studies, to have a positive impact on total cholesterol and very low-density lipoproteins (VLDL) by stimulating bile acid formation and excretion.
When compared to other vegetables, the yellow peas used in Lean and Healthy Vanilla have low levels of phytosteroids (isoflavones), thus minimizing the possible estrogenic effects.
