What is Vegan Protein Coffee?
Vegan Protein Coffee is a non-GMO protein supplement powder that has been specially designed with vegans and vegetarians in mind. Most protein sources are derived from animal products, which vegans, for ethical reasons, cannot consume. This can make building muscle and hitting daily macro targets fairly challenging, although it is certainly not impossible, not by any stretch of the imagination. Protein is vital for muscle growth, repair, and maintenance, so obviously it is important that we get enough each day in order to meet our health and fitness goals. Vegan Protein Coffee is a protein supplement that is made from a combination of four vegan-friendly protein sources of the highest quality. The ingredients found in this product are not only ideal for building muscle, burning fat, and maintaining muscle, they are also ideal for anybody looking to improve their general health and well-being, as they are nutrient-dense, and are incredibly good for the body. The four protein sources found in this premium protein blend include the following:
Pea protein isolate
Pea protein isolate is derived from yellow peas, and is a wonderful source of plant-based protein, as well as fibre. What’s more, it is a great deal more soluble than other pea proteins on the market. This pea protein isolate has been specially formulated using the finest quality ingredients, using a series of complex processes to provide as much protein per serving, as possible. As the pea protein is an isolate, this basically means that, per serving, you get as much as 95 – 99% pure protein, with the remaining 1% - 5% coming from carbohydrates and fat. This particular blend also provides an extremely impressive amino acid profile, making it ideal for vegan and vegetarian bodybuilders or athletes, looking for a healthy and reliable source of plant-based protein.
Fava bean protein
Fava bean protein is a protein powder that is derived from fava beans. It is a very high quality source of protein that has become popular with vegans in recent years because of its texture. Most vegan protein powders found on the market have a chalky consistency; however, fava bean protein has a consistency more similar to whey protein powder, which is smooth in texture and not gritty.
Brown rice protein
The second protein source found in this highly complex blend of vegan-friendly proteins is brown rice protein. This protein, as you can probably guess, is derived from brown rice, which, whilst being a great source of complex carbs, also happens to be a surprising source of plant-based protein as well. This protein source is described as being a complete protein, as it provides all amino acids required by the human body. In actual fact, it has arguably the best plant-based amino acid profile in the world, plus it is rapidly absorbed, and is highly digestible. Brown rice protein is also extremely nutrient-dense, as it is a great source of dietary fibre, as well as minerals, and B vitamins. This protein is obtained using a variety of highly complex processes, including wet milling, fermentation, and various stages of filtration, as well as with enzymatic processes to extract the fibre and the protein from each grain of rice. The rice is non-GMO is hypoallergenic, and is of the finest quality, making it a very welcome addition to this premium vegan protein blend.
Hemp protein is one of the most vastly underrated plant-based protein sources in the entire world. Hemp seeds are not only packed full of protein and nutrients, they also contain a very impressive selection of heart and brain-healthy fats. Obtained via cold milling processes, this hemp protein is of the very finest quality and is very easily absorbed and digested. Hemp seeds are also full of live enzymes and amino acids, along with vitamins, minerals, and the aforementioned healthy fats. Known as a complete protein source as it contains more than 20 amino acids, as well as omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids, hemp protein really is the real deal, and it makes a welcome addition to any diet if truth be told.
How does it work?
Vegan protein coffee works in a whole variety of different ways, especially for people who are looking to actively bulk up and pack muscle mass onto their frames. To begin with, the proteins found in each of the three sources will help to promote muscle growth and repair, as they help the body to initiate protein synthesis, which is a crucial part of post-workout recovery. This is because it is this process in which the body will produce new proteins and muscle tissues, to replace the old and damaged ones caused as a result of a strenuous workout. Best of all however, is the fact that the proteins are absorbed and utilized by the body in different ways, and at different times. There are rapid absorbing proteins that help to nourish the muscle cells and get to work on repairing damaged muscle fibres and tissues almost instantly, and then there are proteins that are slower to be absorbed and digested, so you can ensure that your body has a steady stream of nutrients over the course of several hours, helping to prevent muscle wastage via catabolism, and helping to keep you in a constant anabolic state so that you are continuing to build muscle long after you take the protein. Then of course, you have the amino acids, the vitamins, the minerals, and the healthy fats. These in turn help to promote overall health and well-being, they increase energy levels, they boost the metabolism, and much more besides.
What are the primary benefits of supplementing with premium vegan proteins?
Just like other forms of protein, this macronutrient is required for the growth, repair, and maintenance of muscle tissue. Without adequate amounts of protein each day, the body will struggle to maintain its current muscle mass percentages, and it will subsequently begin eating away at existing muscle tissue. These proteins give the body what it needs to grow and repair itself, allowing users to gradually increase their muscle mass levels.
One of the best things about this vegan protein blend is the fact that it is so convenient. Vegans often find it hard to get enough protein from whole food sources, which is why this supplement is so useful. One serving will provide upwards of 40g of protein, on average, helping to get you well on your way to your daily protein needs and requirements. Simply mix the powder with water, and you’re good to go.
Another very important benefit associated with vegan protein coffee is the fact that they are incredibly nutrient dense. Not only do they provide a complete amino acid profile, they are also rich in fibre, minerals, vitamins, and healthy fat sources. These nutrients boost immunity, they increase energy levels, they boost the metabolism, they improve major organ health, they provide brain and mental health benefits, and much more on top of that.
How and when should it be consumed?
For optimal results, experts recommend consuming this protein supplement every day, even on non-training days. Ideally you should consume 1 – 3 shakes per day. Per serving, simply add 1 30g of the protein blend to water, fruit juice, or the beverage of your choice, and give a good mix or shake. On training days, make sure that one of your three servings comes directly after your workout, and for optimal absorption, make sure you combine it with water, as opposed to soy milk, almond milk, or anything similar, as these can slow down the absorption process. The product should then be stored out of direct sunlight, in a cool, dark, and dry location.
What can it be stacked with?
If you’re looking to increase your muscle mass levels, you may wish to combine this premium protein blend with other vegan-friendly supplements, to allow you to really get the most out of your training. Providing you read the ingredients and are happy that the products you are using contain no animal-derived ingredients, a great vegan-friendly supplement stack can include: all natural premium vegan protein blend, a multivitamin, flaxseed oil, a pre-workout powder, and vitamin C.
