What are vegetable proteins?
A key macronutrient in carrying out essential functions, whose principal characteristic is its raw material.
They act the same way as animal proteins, except they're completely free of vegetable origin.
And due to the number of athletes and people following a sporty lifestyle also following a vegan or vegetarian diet, they're more popular than ever.
That's why sportspeople need nutritional supplements offering proteins from a 100% vegetable source.
Vegetable proteins are a great alternative to those of animal origin.
What are they exactly?
It depends on the raw material:
- Isolated Brown Rice.
What benefits do they offer?
Vegetable proteins offer a number of benefits:
- They provide amino acids, which help support muscle recovery and potential growth.
- Cholesterol and lactose free.
- Easy to consume. Forget about any discomfort digesting them.
There are no side-effects or interactions with this nutritional supplement at all. In fact, as we've seen, they can claim even greater advantages over animal proteins.
