Healthy Source of Protein
Ingredient choices have always been and will always continue to be a priority for AIM. To provide a protein supplement, AIM chose the healthiest option. ProPeas lets you supplement your protein intake with a certified-vegan source from peas that are not genetically modified. Right there, you have a double bonus when making ProPeas part of your dietary intake: natural, plant-based protein. On a daily basis, you require a sufficient amount of this macronutrient for your body’s normal growth, development and function. ProPeas helps you to achieve your required intake with a healthy source of protein.
Healthy Weight Management
Research has proven that plant-based nutrition is an essential ingredient for being in good health and staying there. A large part of its effectiveness is the support your body gets for maintaining a healthy body weight. Each serving of ProPeas fills you up with 12 grams of plant-sourced protein yet with only 60 calories. And 25 percent of each calorie from ProPeas is burned during digestion, increasing your overall body metabolism. What’s more, it takes over 4 hours to digest one serving of ProPeas, so you feel full and avoid additional caloric intake, contributing to healthy weight management.
Amino Acid Profile
Protein is made up from a sequence of specific molecules, amino acids to be exact. The peas in ProPeas provide a fine source of amino acids, including the nine essential ones that your body cannot produce, so these amino acids have to come from your dietary intake. Those essentials also include the three branch-chain amino acids (BCAAs): leucine, isoleucine and valine, which have been shown to benefit athletic performance, recovery from stress, and human growth and development. ProPeas delivers an ideal supplemental source of protein from plants, providing a muscle-building amino acid profile.
There was a time when people actually believed that you could not get all of your protein needs from plant-based food only. Eating a variety of whole foods from the plant kingdom provides all of your nutritional needs, including protein. Fortunately, this fact has caught on. Even athletes at the peak of their performances are touting the benefits of going vegan without concerns about getting enough protein. If you have already chosen a plant-based dietary intake or are considering this healthy lifestyle choice, ProPeas contributes a vegan source of supplemental protein that supports today’s choice.
