FAQS


Why we need Protein?


An essential part of our diet, protein performs all kinds of important bodily functions. We need it to produce hormones, enzymes, antibodies, and other chemicals, and to keep our immune system strong too. Plus, protein is key to building and repairing all kinds of body tissue, including tissues in glands, the liver, and muscles. And during a strenuous workout, it's protein that pushes on through once your normal energy stores have been exhausted. 

 

The Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for protein is 0.8g per kilogram of body weight. While this can seem like a difficult target to achieve if you're on a vegan or plant-based diet (2), this is where plant-based protein powders can be useful in helping to support a healthy lifestyle. 


What are the benefits of protein powder?


Weight management
— Research has shown that protein supplements may help people feel satiated for longer, leading to less snacking and consequently fewer calories consumed overall. Plus, plant-based protein powders are useful in reducing total cholesterol and blood pressure (4).

Efficient post-exercise recovery — Taking protein supplements after a strength and resistance workout can help speed up recovery and repair by reducing muscle damage and improving muscle protein synthesis (5).


How do Plant-Based proteins compare to whey protein?


Both plant-based protein powders and whey protein can help you build and repair muscle, lose fat and manage your weight. However, the different nutritional profiles of each formula may make one a better choice for you than the other — depending on your lifestyle, dietary intolerances, and preferences.


Does Plant-Based protein have amino acids?


The first thing to remember is that while protein is the main ingredient (or 'macronutrient') needed to build muscle mass, there are other nutrients that play an important role in the creation of protein molecules. Amino acids in particular are really important for protein synthesis, which is necessary for tissue repair and muscle growth, as well as a range of other biological processes. 

 

There are 20 different amino acids in total, but only nine of them are called essential amino acids. These are leucine, methionine, histidine, isoleucine, phenylalanine, threonine, lysine, tryptophan, and valine. While our bodies naturally produce these essential amino acids, we should also aim to get them from our diet. That means when you're choosing the best plant-based protein powder, it's not only the protein content that you should look at — you should opt for a formula that contains all nine essential amino acids too.

Whey proteins are packed with essential amino acids and particularly high in leucine, perhaps the most important amino acid in the muscle building and muscle recovery process. This makes whey protein ideal for consuming after a tough workout at the gym. 

 

However, the best plant-based protein shakes on the market also contain all nine essential amino acids and pea protein, in particular, which is an excellent source of leucine. Organic protein powders made from peas, hemp, and soy tend to be packed full of amino acids and other healthy nutrients too — making them an excellent substitute for whey.


I have dietary intolerances, can I consume Plant-Based Protein


Dietary intolerances may also be an important consideration in your choice of protein supplement. Remember that whey protein is formulated from milk, and so it should be avoided by those with dairy or lactose intolerances.

 

Plant-based proteins, on the other hand, are typically kinder to the digestive tract and are high in natural fiber, which helps keep the digestive system moving and your bowel movements regular. Blessed Plant-Based Protein, for example, contains 2g of dietary fiber per serving and has been specially formulated for those with dairy allergies or lactose intolerance.

In fact, the shell of the pea has been deliberately removed from this sprouted pea protein isolate to minimize the risk of digestive discomfort and bloating.


At EHPlabs, our scientists have dedicated a huge amount of time and research to formulating the highest possible quality protein powders and supplements. Our team is passionate about creating efficacious products to support and assist people at every stage of their health and fitness journey, no matter what their dietary needs. That's why, alongside our whey proteins, we're proud to offer a plant-based protein that's perfect for those on a vegan or plant-based diet. TheEHPlabs Blessed Plant Protein is a pure vegan protein powder that's trusted by millions worldwide.

What is Plant-Based protein?


There are several different types of plant-based protein powders on the market, with many brands mixing different combinations of each to create a vegan powder that delivers a healthy mix of amino acids and fats. The most common vegan protein powders are: 

 

Pea protein — Made from ground yellow split peas and rich in several essential amino acids.

Soy protein — Another complete protein source that's isolated from soybean and contains all nine essential amino acids.

Hemp protein – This protein comes from the cannabis plant, although it contains only trace amounts of THC. It's rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids and all 9 essential amino acids.

Brown rice protein — This protein is made from ground rice grains that have been treated with an enzyme to separate the protein from the starch.

 

Other, less common sources of plant-based protein include sunflower seed, sacha inchi, pumpkin seed, and chia seed variations. 


What is Pea Protein?


Raw pea protein isolate (such as the EHPlabs Blessed Plant Protein) is made from ground yellow split peas, which have a higher protein content than the more commonly known green pea. Pea protein isolate is one of the most protein-packed plant sources available (7) and is thought to be more easily digested than other plant-based protein alternatives (8). 

 

Rich in iron and is particularly full of three essential amino acids needed for protein production, fat metabolism, blood sugar regulation, and muscle growth (8), Raw pea protein isolate is naturally gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan too. 


Is Whey Protein vegan?



No. Whey protein is a by-product of the cheesemaking process and as such, it is not vegan. It comes from animal milk (typically cow's milk) that has been heated and processed with enzymes and other catalysts to make it curdle. The solids that separate during this process are then skimmed off the top, the high-protein liquid that remains underneath is further processed and turned into either whey protein concentrate, whey isolate, or whey hydrolysate.


Is Plant-Based protein powder better?


While there are a few key differences between plant-based protein and whey protein, they are both excellent solutions for those looking to up their protein intake for lean muscle building, weight loss and a generally more healthy diet. However, not everybody has the option to consume whey protein powder. For those with dairy or lactose intolerances, plant-based protein is an excellent alternative to whey protein. For example, similarly to OxyWhey, EHPlabs’ Blessed Plant Protein is full of extra healthy minerals and vitamins.


In addition to its nutritional value, it contains just 4g of net carbs for every 23g of protein, which might be a more preferable alternative to whey options for those who are aiming to reduce fat or body weight. Typically, it also takes the body longer to metabolize plant-based protein powders, which means plant-based protein could keep you feeling fuller for longer and stop you from reaching for the snack cupboard in between meals.  


Lastly, being an alkaline formula, some pea proteins (such as Blessed Plant Protein) may assist with post-exercise recovery.


How do you get enough protein as a vegan on a Plant-Based diet?


Getting adequate protein, iron, and other essential vitamins and minerals can be a challenge for those who don't eat animal products. However, there are several plant-based foods that are actually packed with protein, as well as the essential amino acids that we need to build blocks of protein and synthesis hormones too. Tofu, tempeh, quinoa, soybeans, lentils, chickpeas, and peanuts, for example, are all excellent sources of protein and other nutrients. 

 

And of course, plant-based protein powders are also a quick and convenient way of increasing your protein intake on a vegan diet. Vegan protein powders offer a healthy alternative to traditional approaches to boosting protein, which often include high consumption of — or supplements derived from — meat and animal products. Plus, it's a misconception that whey products contain a lot more protein than plant powders. In fact, the EHPlabs Blessed Plant Protein contains 23g of protein per scoop, with only 4g of carbs.


Is vegan Plant-Based protein powder good for you?


If you're still wondering whether your active lifestyle can allow you to go green, then here are just a few of the benefits of vegan protein powder to consider: 

 

- Vegan protein powder can help give your body the essential amino acids needed for protein synthesis — supporting muscle growth and repair. Pea protein is particularly high in the amino acid arginine (or L-arginine), which helps metabolize fat and can also be converted into sugar glucose and used as an energy source (9).

- Pea and other plant-based proteins are loaded with healthy fiber, which can help improve digestion and absorption.

- Plant-based proteins tend to be lower in cholesterol than whey and other animal-based proteins and high in plant sterols, which can support heart health by limiting the amount of cholesterol that can enter the body.

- Pea protein in particular is naturally high in iron, which is required for energy metabolism, hormone production, and the transport of oxygen. 


What is the best Plant-Based protein powder?


Pea protein is a great source of high-quality, organic protein powder. In fact, research suggests that supplementing with pea protein can result in similar muscle gains as supplementing with whey protein (10). Plus, pea protein contains all nine essential amino acids needed to build blocks of protein. And compared with other plant-based protein products that have been isolated from rice or hemp, pea protein contains a better balance of these essential amino acids. 

In particular, pea protein powder is rich in three branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), which can help boost muscle growth and performance: leucine, isoleucine, and valine. These amino acids: 

 

- Support the recovery of muscle tissue after exercise (11).


- Improve endurance during workouts and reduce exercise fatigue (12).


- Help reduce body fat and increase lean muscle mass (13).


- Support the recovery of exercise-induced tissue damage that can occur during high-intensity workouts (14).


Can a plant-based protein shake build muscle? How can I use a vegan protein powder to build muscle?


Yes. Just like whey protein, you can effectively enhance muscle growth with plant-based proteins, as long as you choose the right type of plant protein, consume the correct amount and support a healthy diet with adequate strength and training exercises. 

 

First, we recommend filling your diet with a range of protein-rich, plant foods such as chia seeds, lentils, quinoa, chickpeas, beans, spelt, hempseed, nut butter, tempeh, seitan, tofu, peas, and oats. Then, train smart. That means sticking to a consistent strength and training regime, focusing on the four larger muscle groups first if you're a beginner (quads, glutes, deltoid, and triceps), and increasing your weights and reps over time. 

 

Then, supplement your diet, power your workout and support your recovery with a high-quality, vegan protein powder that contains all the essential amino acids that your body needs for muscle building and repair. The EHPlabs Blessed Plant-Based Protein contains all 9 essential amino acids needed for protein synthesis, as well as 23g of high-quality protein per scoop. 


How do I use Plant-Based protein powder?



Yes. Just like whey protein, you can effectively enhance muscle growth with plant-based proteins, as long as you choose the right type of plant protein, consume the correct amount and support a healthy diet with adequate strength and training exercises. 

 

First, we recommend filling your diet with a range of protein-rich, plant foods such as chia seeds, lentils, quinoa, chickpeas, beans, spelt, hempseed, nut butter, tempeh, seitan, tofu, peas, and oats. Then, train smart. That means sticking to a consistent strength and training regime, focusing on the four larger muscle groups first if you're a beginner (quads, glutes, deltoid, and triceps), and increasing your weights and reps over time. 

 

For best results, drink your plant-based protein shake either right before or within one hour of finishing your workout. This will allow you to obtain the full nutritional benefits of the supplement and will give your body the best chance to strengthen muscle tissue and repair any damage. 

 

The EHPlabs Blessed Plant-Based Protein has a pH of 7.8 to assist with recovery, so it's a great option to drink post-workout. It's also naturally sweetened with stevia and natural flavor technology, so you can enjoy it even with just chilled water. Alternatively, mix a scoop of this best tasting vegan protein powder with your favorite almond milk, smoothie, yogurt, coffee, or juice. 


Are vegan Plant-Based protein powders safe? How do I choose a Plant-Based protein powder?


When choosing a plant-based protein powder, there are a few things to look out for to ensure your supplement is high-quality, safe, and 100% vegan: 

 

Look for a formula that's free from artificial additives, sweeteners, grit, and digestive enzymes.
