Product Description

 

Vanilla Veggie Protein is a balanced nutritional protein powder, free from classic allergens, such as gluten, soy, dairy, and does not contain fructose or any genetically-modified foods. It provides a diverse blend of pure plant proteins combined with other essential nutrients and fiber to create a complete source of balanced daily nutrition. Just one serving of Vanilla Veggie Protein provides 20 g of high-quality protein, sourced from organic brown rice and legumes (peas). The unique complex of vegetable-based protein has a well-balanced amino acid profile including a high content of lysine, arginine, and branched chain amino acids. Vanilla Veggie Protein suits all lifestyles and weight management goals, delivering the preferred ratio of protein, carbohydrates and fat necessary for a balanced diet in delicious creamy vanilla. Vanilla Veggie Protein is specially formulated to curb cravings, maintain glycemic balance and help individuals on specialty diets easily adhere to their prescribed meal plan.

Overview

Vanilla Veggie Protein is a comprehensive nutrition source that includes an ideal balance of organic brown rice and pea proteins. These proteins have been shown to support satiety naturally by increasing cholecystokinin (CCK) and glucagon like peptide-1 (GLP-1). CCK and GLP-1 are well-known satiety hormones that aid the body in decreasing food intake and signaling increased satiety to the brain. These proteins support satisfaction and maintenance of normal blood sugar levels after eating.1-3 Carbohydrates are the body’s preferred fuel source, making this macronutrient essential to a well-balanced diet. However, the type, quantity and metabolic impact of carbohydrate intake are imperative to achieving balance and reaching wellness goals. Vanilla Veggie Protein provides low-impact carbohydrates balanced with fiber, protein and healthy fats, like olive oil, to fuel the body and maintain optimal health. Olive oil has been shown to not only support heart health and healthy regulation of cholesterol levels, but the omega-3 rich oil helps support satiety as well. Researchers have found that olive oil consumption has a direct impact on blood sugar levels – reducing the amount of glucose absorbed from the blood into the liver cells.4

Nutrients

Pea Protein

Pea protein was chosen to comprise the plant protein sources of Vanilla Veggie Protein because it showed the strongest effects on CCK release compared to other dietary proteins, in an intestinal cell model.1 In healthy subjects, pea and wheat protein are the most potent stimulators of CCK and GLP-1 release in human duodenal tissue and therefore may be good dietary additives in weight management.2 Further studies on the effect of pea protein on satiety hormone release showed an increase in the level of CCK, comparable to the effect of whey protein.3

Rice Protein

Rice protein is a valuable source of branched chain amino acids leucine, isoleucine and valine. These amino acids reduce the breakdown of protein and stimulate protein synthesis. In animal studies, rice protein was shown to support strong heart function, healthy cholesterol levels and insulin sensitivity, reducing the negative impact of the Western diet fed to these animals.5-7

L-Carnitine Tartrate

L-carnitine increases the flow of free fatty acids into the mitochondria of each cell directly boosting energy production. When key micronutrients are combined with a therapeutic amount of L-carnitine, the mixture can be used as a high octane fuel supplement to enhance mitochondrial energy production and produce clinically significant results. In animal models, L-carnitine has been shown to be effective for supporting cardiac performance, healthy cholesterol levels, carbohydrate and muscle metabolism, cognitive function and a reduction in fatigue.8-11

Taurine

Taurine is a key ingredient in Vanilla Veggie Protein as it enhances function at a cellular level and although it is produced in the body, consumption is essential to maintaining adequate levels. Taurine is a sulfur–containing amino acid that is not incorporated into proteins. It is found in very high concentrations in the heart and retina of the eyes where it serves as a potent antioxidant to protect these delicate tissues.12 In human and animal studies, taurine supplementation is shown to support healthy blood pressure levels and positive physiological functioning of the heart.13-16

Organic Flax Seed Flour

Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) is an omega-3 fatty acid found in flax seeds shown to support healthy heart function.17-18 Flax seeds are also a source of fiber and lignans. Lignans support safe estrogen metabolism in both men and women.19

Olive Oil Powder

Olive oil is a known source of bioactive compounds that support optimal health. Olive oil extracts have been shown to support heart health, healthy cholesterol levels and promotes a healthy cycle of inflammation.20-22 Recent studies have even found olive oil to support healthy weight management.4

Larch Arabinogalactan (Fiber AidTM)

Larch arabinogalactan is a source of dietary fiber, and has been approved as such by the FDA. This fiber aid was selected as an ingredient in Vanilla Veggie Protein due to its immune enhancing properties that suggest an array of clinical uses, both in promoting GI health, as well as its ability to support a more responsive immune system. Arabinogalactan has been shown to prime the immune system, increase natural killer cell activity and support the body during immune challenges.22
