The essential amino acid profile of our pea protein is very close to that of the ideal protein. Other vegetarian sources such as rice or soy can lack in the percentage profile for certain essential amino acids. Pea protein is easily assimilated and has a sustained release transit time, which means it has excellent digestibility and keeps working. We have further enhanced this with the addition of the plant-derived enzyme Aminogen®. Research shows Aminogen to increase branched-chain amino acids by 250%, increase plasma amino acid levels over 100%, increase glutamine levels by 90%, increase arginine levels by 80%, increase nitrogen retention by 32%, promote lean body mass, aid in muscle recovery, and may provide less gas, bloating and constipation.*
Label changes from 12,000 ORAC to 40,000 ORAC. Initially, ORAC values were based on 1 oxide radical. But now with the new improved industry standard that can test total ORAC values (five oxide radicals), we updated our label to reflect that versus our previous label. Our formula has not changed, but the testing protocol has been upgraded and our product demonstrated over 40,000 total ORAC which is what is now reflected in our updated label. Of course, our product is still Lab Certified by Brunswick Labs who are experts in ORAC testing.
