Vegetable protein, the healthiest option for athletes

More and more people prefer vegetable protein as the main ingredient in their shakes, because they are much healthier and can help them achieve a balanced weight and the toned body they are looking for. These are not miraculous or low-calorie diets, nor extreme thinness. Vegetable protein shakes like V-PRO are a balanced and high-nutrition alternative for athletes and athletes, both professionals and amateurs.

What makes V-PRO vegetable protein shakes different from the rest and much healthier is that their rice, chia, and pea proteins do not contain cholesterol, are rich in antioxidants and are easy for the body to digest.

Protein is a fundamental part of a balanced diet, as are carbohydrates and lipids. But unlike protein of animal origin, foods that contain vegetable protein have important benefits for a balanced and healthy diet.

Plant-based proteins are high in fiber, promoting transit and intestinal health. They do not raise cholesterol, as many sources of animal protein do. In addition, vegetable proteins contain unsaturated fats that are beneficial for the body.

Another benefit of preferring plant-based protein shakes is that they do not contain purine, a substance that causes uric acid and which in excess can cause health problems such as kidney stones and a type of arthritis known as gout.

The pea protein contained in V-PRO shakes is a legume that acts as a vegetable insulin. It helps maintain stable sugar levels and prevent the craving for sweets. Its fiber content is essential to improve intestinal health, and pea is rich in calcium, iron and magnesium.

Brown rice, an ingredient that V-PRO shakes contain despite being classified as a carbohydrate, stands out for its high protein content. Its mild flavor and low fat content are two more reasons to be part of its ingredients.

Another base ingredient in all V-PRO shakes is chicory root, which is high in inulin. Inulin is a polysaccharide that is well absorbed and leads to a decrease in blood sugar, which makes chicory a valuable product in the treatment and rehabilitation of patients with diabetes. It helps improve metabolic processes in the body, strengthens the nervous system and promotes the rehabilitation of the body after training.

The base recipe for V-PRO shakes also contains chia protein, an essential superfood for its high nutritional and therapeutic properties. The protein extracted from chia contains all the properties attributed to chia seeds but its fat content is lower. It is an excellent source of plant-based protein, omega-3 and fiber.

V-PRO is a highly functional 100% vegetable protein shake, it contains 22 grams of protein per serving and all essential amino acids. Vegan product, free of gluten, lactose, soy and added sugar.
