Vegetable protein for muscle development – with perfect chocolate flavour and creamy consistency!
While conducting regular and intensive trainings, I never forget to provide my body with essential ingredients, which it needs, especially during regular physical activity. The body cannot be deceived and during strength exercises it requires appropriate nutritional values and above all good quality protein.
My vegan chocolate protein blend is a protein supplement based on pea proteins and cocoa. It contains a unique composition of amino acids and is an ideal dietary supplement both before and after workout. Rich, full amino acid profile provides the muscles with all elements necessary for growth and development.
One serving contains over 21 g of high quality vegetable protein of the highest biological value and has low content of carbohydrates and fats.
The protein mix dissolves well, so the resulting cocktail has a deliciously creamy texture.
It is a unique product for athletes and active people who, like me, cannot imagine a day without a decent dose of exercise.
Especially because my protein is:
Pea protein isolate has, among others, a high concentration of arginine, lysine, phenylalanine and BCAA (branched-chain amino acids).. It is an excellent source of iron. Arginine supports healthy blood circulation, while leucine, isoleucine and valine promote muscle growth. Due to the lack of gluten and lactose, pea protein is quickly digested and thus it leaves you with a feeling of satiety and lightness even immediately after a meal.
Cacao is a good source of: magnesium, iron, zinc, manganese, phosphorus, B vitamins and fibre. Cacao is also rich in tryptophan which is turned into one of the main neurotransmitters in our body – serotonin (commonly known as happiness hormone). Simultaneously, thanks to such compounds as theobromine, caffeine and anandamide, cacao stimulates and enhances our mood. Cacao contains phenethylamine (PEA) which increases the level of dopamine in the body what results in the improvement of our focus, alertness and mood.
Preparation and dosage:
Mix 30 g of powder (about 1 scoop) with 300 ml of cold water or a vegetable drink. Pour the liquid into the shaker first and then add the powder. Shake well for about 10 seconds.
The cocktail can be consumed after training or as a snack during the day (1-3 servings per day).
