If you could have one pure “clean food” in a glass, this would be it. (And it can even help you lose weight!)
A 2009 study in the New England Journal of Medicine found that low-carb dieters lost 50% more weight when their primary protein source was from plants, compared to those who ate more meat. And a second study in Nutrition Reviews, found that women who ate mostly plant-based protein weighed an average 15% less than those who ate primarily meat.
Here’s what you should know about plant protein:
- It is digested slower than animal-based protein, so it keeps you fuller for longer
- It triggers the release of leptin, a hormone produced in fat cells that decreases appetite
- It is ideal as a protein source for vegans, vegetarians, and those with concerns about soy, egg, and dairy-based proteins
What’s Our Primary Plant Protein Go-To?
The UNI KEY plant protein formula, Fat Flush Body Protein, is unique because it’s manufactured in the USA from GMO-free pea and rice protein. This special blend provides a complete protein source— peas are high in lysine, the amino acid typically deficient in rice, while rice provides the sulfur-bearing amino acids, cysteine and methionine, which are lacking in pea protein. Providing 20 grams of protein per serving, this formula is free of preservatives, artificial sweeteners, gluten, dairy and soy. In addition, third party testing confirms each batch is free of dangerous amounts of heavy metals commonly found in other protein products like arsenic, cadmium, mercury, and lead.
What to Watch For
Protein powders are not all the same purity. The best thing to do if you’re shopping for protein powders is to check the ingredients closely. It is common for brands (even popular ones) to contain preservatives and other synthetic ingredients like aspartame, saccharin, and “artificial flavors.” Another common ingredient in protein powders is soy. Too much soy can be dangerous because it contains high levels of phytoestrogens–the estrogen-like chemicals occurring naturally in plant foods. Overloading intake of these chemicals can cause an imbalance in the body’s natural hormone ratios. This should be concerning for everyone, but especially for vegans and vegetarians who consume more soy products, on average, to begin with.
