Pea Protein Isolate


Pea Protein Isolate is a vegetable based protein which is easily digestible and absorbed relatively slowly by the body. Perfect for those that prefer vegetable based proteins, our Pea Protein Isolate is high in naturally occurring amino acids, and being sourced entirely from the yellow pea makes it the ideal choice for Vegans. Our Pea Protein Isolate is flavoured with only natural flavours and uses the highest grade of stevia as a natural sweetener to ensure a great tasting natural product.

Pea Protein Isolate’s relatively slow absorption rate means it is best consumed between training sessions or by those with faster metabolisms.

Get More Familiar with our Pea Protein Isolate

Have you always used dairy-based protein powder in the past, but do you tend to experience some digestive discomfort because of the lactose inside these supplements? Or would you prefer a protein powder that does not contain any animal products? If this is the case, we can recommend Pea Protein Isolate, a vegetable protein with similar benefits to dairy-based whey protein. To learn more about this vegetable protein powder, please read the information provided by Nutrients Direct below.

What Is Pea Protein Isolate?

Pea Protein Isolate is a specific form of vegetable protein powder. It is obtained from the yellow pea, which makes this protein powder a suitable supplement for vegans and vegetarians. However, even though it is obtained from a vegetable source, it does not mean it is less effective than the dairy-based protein powders we have in our range. As a vegetable protein, it is high in naturally occurring amino acids, which contribute to muscle growth, muscle repair and muscle maintenance.

Which Amino Acids Are Present in Pea Protein Isolate?

Considering the fact that the amino acid profile of this vegetable protein is similar to that of whey protein, you will find the same amino acids in Pea Protein Isolate. That being said, Pea Protein Isolate is especially high in certain amino acids as well, which includes arginine, lysine and phenylalanine.

Arginine

Arginine is an important amino acid for a process called protein synthesis, so it is no surprise that the majority of benefits of this particular amino acids are related to this process. Naturally, arginine has other advantages as well; this especially includes muscle growth.

When you want your muscle to grow, you will need a good supply of arginine in your diet; this is because this amino acid sends certain signals to the muscle in order to release growth hormones and increase the metabolism. Because of this particular function, athletes looking to gain more lean muscle mass and obtain a more athletic physique will find this amino acid especially useful.

Lysine

Similar to arginine, lysine is an amino acid with numerous important functions within the human body. Because of the fact that the human body cannot create this vital amino acid on its own, athletes will have to rely of food sources or supplements to acquire this important substance.

Lysine is one of the vital parts of protein and plays a role in calcium absorption. Therefore, we could state that lysine is important for all the functions in the body relating to calcium and protein.

Phenylalanine

The functions of phenylalanine relate to protein metabolism, muscle growth and weight loss. The last benefit of weight loss can be somewhat surprising for most athletes, but this amino acid can actually supress appetite. If you have been struggling with cravings, or have problems controlling your portion sizes during a diet, then you may want to consider getting a supplement with phenylalanine.

How Does Pea Protein Isolate Promote Weight Loss?

Pea Protein Isolate can help with weight loss by reducing your appetite, more specifically through the amino acids phenylalanine, but also by lowering the levels of a substance called ghrelin.

Not many people are familiar with the substance ghrelin, nor do they know what this substance does in the human body. When we consume food, ghrelin levels will start to increase over time. When ghrelin levels reach their peak, it creates a hunger feeling. Even though hunger feelings are an essential part of survival, they do become a little annoying when you are on a diet and trying to lose weight by reducing your portions.

Are There More Vegetable Protein Available at Nutrients Direct?

Athletes who like the idea of vegetable protein powders will find many options in our store. In addition to Pea Protein Isolate, customers get additional choices such as Rice Protein Isolate and Soy Protein Isolate. Both these protein supplements are fast absorbing and easy to digest, which could make them a viable alternative for dairy-based whey protein supplements.

Not only the absorption and digestion rate of our vegetable-based protein are similar to whey protein, their benefits are as well. Similar to our Pea Protein Isolate, both rice and soy protein can be used for weight loss, increase sports performance, endurance, muscle building and much more.

How Much Protein Do I Need?

In general, the dietary reference intake for protein is 0.8 grams per kilogram of body weight. For the average man, this amounts to 56 grams per day, while the amount for the average woman amounts to 46 grams per day. We do need to mention that these values are calculated based on a sedentary lifestyle, so if you are an athlete, you may need more protein than the general guideline.

Determining the exact amount of protein can be rather difficult, because there are many factors to take into consideration. Your age, weight, activity levels and fitness goals can all play a role in determining how much protein you should be taking. If you are beginning, and do not have much experience with supplements or their use, it is recommended to consult your physician before you start taking any supplement. You can also contact a nutritionist or an experienced trainer to find out what amount of protein could benefit your current fitness goals.

Vegetable protein are not as known as dairy protein supplements such as whey protein concentrate and micellar casein. However, this does not mean that vegetable-based proteins are less effective, because vegetable-based protein can provide the same fitness benefits as dairy-based protein. For example; pea protein isolate can provide benefits such as weight loss, enhanced sports performance, muscle building and improved overall health. Therefore, a variety of athletes can use a vegetable-based protein supplement instead of the traditional dairy-based protein. Of course, pea protein isolate is just one of many vegetable-based protein supplements, so depending on the benefits you are looking for, you could consider other vegetable-based protein supplements as well. In addition to pea protein isolate, athletes could also benefit from rice protein isolate and soy protein isolate. All these vegetable-based protein supplements are available in different flavours as well, so there is a suitable vegetable-based protein supplement for every athlete. 

Athletes focussed on weight loss will need to check the calorie count of their vegetable-based protein supplements. Even though these protein supplements are never that high in calories, there can be a difference in calories between pea protein, rice protein and soy protein isolate. Still, even with a variable calorie amount, athletes looking to increase their weight loss can still benefit from vegetable-based protein supplements.

Pea Protein Isolate is just as powerful as our animal-based protein powders, which also means athletes still need to put some work in the gym to see the results they wish to obtain. If your goal is weight loss, then you must watch the number of calories you consume in combination with the Pea Protein Isolate supplement. Even though this protein supplement does not contain a high number of calories, you should still incorporate the supplement in your overall calorie count for the day.

Experienced and accomplished athletes will tell you that reaching your fitness goals is not just about taking the right supplements, it is also about dedication and consistency. If you have made changes to your lifestyle, but don’t keep up with them, you will not see the results you wish to obtain. So, if you are struggling to implement some changes in your lifestyle, it is advised to seek professional help of a trainer and nutritionist, as we mentioned earlier. When you use the internet, you’ll be surprised just how many people in your neighbourhood can help you reach those fitness goals. Of course, you don’t have to call a personal trainer or a nutritionist, because the gym also has some trainers at your disposal. Still, whichever one you choose, the additional assistance of these professionals can be tremendously valuable.
