Pisiva® is one of the best vegan protein sources available for healthy diets due to its amino acid profile, high in branched chain amino acids (BCAA’s), especially arginine. Pea protein has almost three times the arginine content of whey. Arginine promotes healthy blood flow and heart health. It’s also rich in leucine, isoleucine and valine, which drive protein synthesis and results in muscle mass. Pea protein contains lysine which promotes healthy cartilage, skin and bones. It is also a good source of iron, and is easily digestible. Pea protein has a digestibility rate of 94%, meaning most of it will break down during digestion.
Pea protein contains all nine essential amino acids that your body cannot create and must get from food. It is a little low in methionine that can be balanced by adding Ortiva® Rice Protein. Pea protein provides support for kidney health. Like whey, pea protein also promotes muscle growth, muscle mass and exercise recovery. Research also shows that as a weight-loss supplement it increases metabolism, reduces appetite, and helps control blood sugar levels.
