What’s in Vegan Prot3in Triplex?
Vegan Prot3in Triplex combines 3 different natural plant protein sources (brown rice protein, pea protein and hemp protein) to create a unique blend of vegan protein.
When formulating Vegan Prot3in Triplex our goal was to create a complete, easily digestable, plant-based protein. We had enough of all the foul-tasting plant proteins and the fact that most protein powders are full of fillers (some of which are not even listed on the label).
By combining brown rice protein, pea protein and hemp protein, we created a perfect blend that has an amino acid profile as close to human milk as possible. But why is this so important? The formula of Vegan Prot3in Triplex is based on the composition of human breast milk which is widely considered to be the perfect food. It contains all the essential amino acids in an ideal ratio to achieve growth. Human breast milk is nature’s best and purest source of nutrients, meant to satisfy the complex needs of the human body.
Vegan Prot3in Triplex is the best choice for achieving your goals – whether it’s satisfying your body’s protein needs, building muscle, improving endurance, faster recovery or losing weight.
Brown rice protein:
Rice protein is ideal for those allergic to soy or having troubles digesting soy. Unlike soy brown rice protein doesn't cause any stomach pain or digestive distress. It is also easier absorbed by the body than soy. Rice protein contains all essential amino acids, that is amino acids that cannot be synthesized within the human body, thus need to be supplied by the diet. Rice protein has been clinically shown as good as whey at building muscle, strength & aiding in exercise recovery.
Rice and pea protein complement each other well because rice protein contains higher levels of the amino acids cysteine and methionine, while pea protein is high in lysine. This combination may offer a more complete profile of amino acids to help build muscle. Pea protein doesn’t cause digestive problems and it is very well absorbed by the body. According to studies, pea protein can help regulate appetite and aid in weight loss. It also contains all the essential amino acids.
Hemp protein contains 65% edestin – the highest percentage amongst all plant-based proteins. Edestin is a biologically active protein that produces antibodies which are vital to maintain a healthy immune system. Hemp protein is easily digestable, well-absorbed and contains all the 21 known amino acids. Hemp seeds contain no tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive element present in the cannabis plant.
Stevia is a 100% natural, zero calorie sweetener with a number of health benefits that have been confirmed in human studies. Stevia is a green, leafy plant that is native to South America. It has been used for medicinal purposes for many centuries. The plant has also been bred for its strong, sweet flavor and used as a sweetener. The active compounds of stevia are steviol glycosides, offering a safe and healthy alternative to sugar. Stevia can lower blood pressure, lower blood sugar levels and lower „bad cholesterol” .
The concept of Vegan Prot3in Triplex is based on 3 main ideas – it’s complete, it’s natural and it tastes incredible! The blend of brown rice protein, pea protein and hemp protein makes a perfect combination: the result is a fantastic protein source that is completely plant-based and tastes amazing as well!
What’s NOT in Vegan Prot3in Triplex?
- artificial sweeteners
- artificial colorings
- added sugars
- animal ingredients
- allergen substances
Proteins are one of the essential building blocks of the human body. They provide amino acids, which are a nutritional requirement of the body to produce its own proteins and a variety of nitrogen-based molecules. From the proteins we eat, the body synthesizes hormones, enzymes, immune system components, structural molecules, and many more elements indispensable to human life. In addition, protein helps to maintain both fluid and acid-base balance in the body. Without protein, life is impossible.
1. Protein Concentrate vs. Isolate: Protein is derived from various food sources and is "concentrated" by removing the non-protein parts. The result: a powder that’s 70 to 85 percent pure protein. Taking the concentration process a step further, "isolation" removes a much higher percentage of non-protein content and results in up to 95 percent pure protein.
2. Complete vs. Incomplete Protein: Amino acids that cannot be produced by the body are known as essential amino acids. "Complete proteins" contain all nine essential amino acids, whereas "incomplete proteins" contain some, but not all, of the essential amino acids.
Why human breast milk is the perfect protein source?
In the table below you can see the amount of essential amino acids found in Vegan Prot3in Triplex and human breast milk. Human milk contains all the essential amino acids needed for the body in the most optimal ratio – as nature intended!
Doctors and experts agree that human breast milk is nutritionally a complete and perfect food. There is no doubt that the most ideal amino acid profile is the one that nature provides us when we are in the state of rapid growth and development.
We formulated Vegan Prot3in Triplex with this ideal amino acid ratio in mind. As you can see from the table above, we designed this combination of brown rice protein, pea protein and hemp protein to be as close to the protein composition of human breast milk as possible.
Top 3 myths about plant-based protein
MYTH: Plant proteins are incomplete
TRUTH: This is a very old and widespread misconception that is sadly still alive. The actual truth is that plant proteins are in no way worse than animal proteins. Even the basic statement is wrong since you can find plant proteins which contain all essential amino acids (hemp seed, chia seed, soy, spirulina, etc.) but the other problem is the assumption that we only eat just one specific plant food all day, everyday. The reality is that a combination of plant foods can easily provide a human body with all the necessary amino acids needed.
MYTH: Plant proteins are not well digested
TRUTH: Quality depends on the source and dietary mixture of plant proteins, which can be equivalent to high-quality animal proteins. There are better quality plant proteins and there are lesser quality ones. The same is true with animal proteins. Red meat or processed meats for example are definitely not a good source of protein. Plant protein can be of very high quality if you get it from a pure and natural source.
MYTH: Animal protein is better quality than plant protein
TRUTH: Digestibility varies based on source and food preparation, and the digestibility can actually be high when it comes to plant proteins. So the truth is that it depends; soy is hard to digest but on the other hand, many people have problems digesting dairies or processed meat. We combined 3 different easy-to-digest plant proteins in Vegan Prot3in Triplex.
Protein 101 – Comparing different protein sources
First, let's start with milk proteins. The major proteins in milk are casein and whey. Their ratio is around 80-20. Food for thought: humans are the only animal on our planet to drink milk from other species. As babies, we need breast milk to grow, that is a fact. But is cow milk meant for human consumption? We'll let you decide.
1. Whey protein
Whey is the most common source of protein found in fitness supplements. It is a by-product of the manufacture of cheese or casein. Whey used to be considered useless and was therefore discarded. It was later discovered however that it can be marketed to bodybuilders and athletes as a good protein source so a whole industry was built on whey powders. While whey does help build muscle it also has many disadvantages.
- It can contribute to belly fat gain.
- It can cause bloating and gas.
- The lactose in whey can cause digestive problems for some. Approximately 65 percent of the human population has a reduced ability to digest lactose after infancy.
- It is an animal product so not suitable for vegans.
- According to some experts, it may cause iver and kidney strain.
- It is frequently mixed with artificial ingredients.
- Some studies say why can cause a mineral imbalance in the body which leads to joint problems and reduced bone density.
Casein is a protein that makes up approximately 80 percent of the total protein content of cow's milk. It has a slower absorption rate than whey so it is not an ideal post-workout protein source. Casein is more expensive then whey and a lot of times has artificial ingredients in it that they use to mask its unpleasant taste.
World-renowned nutritional scholar, Dr. T. Colin Campbell wrote about the connection between casein and cancer in his book called The China Study. According to the result of his study, casein, which makes up 87% of cow's milk protein, promotes all stages of the cancer process. Casein can also be found in many non-food items such as: paint, adhesives, glues, textiles and plastics.
3. Egg protein
Egg protein is a complete protein made by separating out the yolks and dehydrating the egg whites. Allergies to eggs are common, similar to milk allergies, especially in children and young adults. Egg protein powder may contain dangerous pathogens like Salmonella. Traces of antibiotics, hormones and other pharmaceuticals may be present in the egg protein powder if the raw material utilized was sourced from factory-farmed eggs.
Eggs are generally not a good source of protein. Because of their high cholesterol content, the frequent consumption of eggs might be linked to heart disease, high blood pressure and early mortality. Store bought eggs are usually factory-farmed. Factory farmed chickens are often kept under inhumane conditions and routinely fed antibiotics. Not only the quality of these eggs not as good but animals have to suffer as well to produce them.
4. Soy protein
Soy beans are one of the few plant protein sources that offer all of the essential amino acids. The protein is concentrated or isolated after the soy beans have been hulled and dried into soy flour.
In recent years, a number of dangers and disadvantages of soy have been discovered.
- Soy is often genetically modified to produce greater crop yields.
- Soybeans and soy products contain high levels of phytic acid, which inhibits assimilation of calcium, magnesium, copper, iron, and zinc.
- Hypothyroidism and thyroid cancer may be caused by soy phytoestrogens.
- The plant estrogens found in soy, called phytoestrogens, disrupt endocrine function, that is, the proper functioning of the glands that produce hormones, and have the potential to cause infertility as well as to promote breast cancer in adult women.
- Soy has been found to increase the body's need for vitamin B12 and vitamin D.
- Studies have found a link between soy consumption and lower sperm count. It is also linked to weight gain and gynecomastia in men.
- Soy could cause digestive problems.
- Trypsin inhibitors in soy interfere with protein digestion and may cause pancreatic disorders.
5. Rice protein
Although most people think of rice as a source of carbohydrates, it is actually a very high quality protein source too. Brown rice is becoming a standard source for vegetarian protein powder.
The amino acid profile of rice is very close to the composition of human breast milk which makes it one of the best choice for athletes who want to build muscle, get stronger and recover faster. According to studies, brown rice can help burn fat and lower cholesterol. It is hypoallergenic and absorbed very well by the body.
6. Hemp protein
Hemp protein is derived from the seeds of the cannabis plant that’s gained popularity in recent years. Often referred to as a "superfood" due to its mix of essential fatty acids, hemp includes all 21 amino acids (making it a complete protein) and is vegan-friendly and extremely hypoallergenic. It helps maintaining a healthy immune system. The only drawback is that since hemp is only harvested in mass quantities in select countries due to its association with cannabis, it is often the most expensive protein powder available.
7. Pea protein
Pea protein comes from the yellow split pea, making it a popular choice for vegetarians and vegans alike.
As with most plant-based proteins, pea protein is hypoallergenic. It may also aid weight loss. Studies found that out of all the protein sources, pea protein is the most effective in suppressing hunger. It contains the full spectrum of essential amino acids but remains deficient in certain other amino acids so it's best to use it combined with other plant proteins.
Which protein source is the best?
So which protein source should you choose then?
To sum it up in a sentence: the one that fits your individual needs. Choose a protein that satisfies both your body and your soul.
We can list a thousand different reasons for choosing a plant protein.
Some people have problems digesting whey protein.
Some people prefer protein shakes with no added sugars or artificial ingredients.
Some people believe a plant-based diet is the healthiest choice.
Some people consider environmental reasons and sustainability an important aspect. Plant protein production offers a lower environmental impact and a sustainable solution to meeting our growing demand for food.
Some people will not let a living, feeling creature suffer or even die for their food.
Some people have religious reasons for not buying animal products.
Whatever your reason might be, we respect it and feel honored to serve costumers who don’t just go with the crowd but live their lives according to values.
