Max Effort Vegan Protein Breakdown
Max Effort’s vegan protein combines the highly bioavailable pea protein isolate with peanut flour, and natural flavors and sweeteners. Pea protein isolate is low in carbs and fats which makes this protein great for gaining lean muscle or burning fat. Max Effort’s vegan protein is free of any additives. This protein is available in peanut butter flavor and is naturally flavored with real peanuts and sweetened with stevia. If you follow a vegan diet you know how hard it is to hit your protein macronutrient goals. Many high protein vegan foods such as beans, quinoa, lentils, and almonds also contain a lot of carbohydrates or fats. A vegan protein supplement is the easiest way to fill the protein gap created with this diet.
Max Effort uses pea protein isolate, obtained by drying and grounding peas into a powder and then removing the fiber and starch. Pea protein is a complete protein, meaning it contains all 9 essential amino acids. Pea protein is relatively low in methionine, which can easily be addressed with small amounts of animal protein or rice protein. Pea protein is about 9% leucine by weight, which shows it is just as good at triggering muscle protein synthesis for lean mass gains as whey protein is. Pea protein is also slower digesting than whey which makes it a great choice for meal replacement or before bed.
If you need a naturally flavored plant-based protein for your fitness goals, Max Effort’s vegan protein is a great choice.
