When certain plant proteins are combined, they form a complete protein, or a protein that contains all the essential amino acids. Therefore, when searching for a plant based protein powder, look for one with the following ingredients:
Peas are high in starch, protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals, making them a perfect food to include in your protein powder. When hydrolysed, pea protein yields peptides with bioactivities, including angiotensin I-converting enzyme inhibitor activity and antioxidant activity. Peas contain phytochemicals called polyphenols, which have antioxidant and anticarcinogenic activity. The fiber located within the cell walls and seed coats of peas contribute to digestive health and reduce the digestibility of its starch.
Supplementing with rice protein can modify triglyceride metabolism, which leads to an improvement of body weight and adiposity. According to a recent study, the triglyceride-lowering action and the anti-adiposity action induced by rice protein is attributed to upregulation of lipolysis and down regulation of lipogenesis, and the lower digestibility of rice protein may be responsible for the lipid-lowering action.
Alfalfa is high in many vitamins, including the entire spectrum of B-vitamins, A, D, E and K. It is also a good source of iron, niacin, biotin, folic acid, calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, chlorophyll, protein and amino acids. According to the Global Healing Centre, alfalfa has the following health benefits:
Spirulina is the richest and most complete source of nutrition. It has a unique blend of nutrients that no other single source can offer, including B-complex vitamins, minerals, proteins, gamma-linolenic acid and the super anti-oxidants such as beta-carotene, vitamin E, trace elements and a number of unexplored bioactive compounds (Kulshreshtha 2008). Other benefits include antioxidant, antibacterial, antiviral, anticancer, anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic and anti-diabetic properties. Spirulina also promotes the health of microflora in the gut.
