3 Important Factors When Choosing a Protein Supplement

3 important factors when choosing a protein supplement and why Plant Science Gut-Feeling plant-based prebiotic gut health protein fibre powder is the perfect choice when it comes to supporting weight loss and your overall health and wellbeing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1. Source- plant based proteins are often more easily digested and can cause less digestive discomfort than whey- based protein from animals which contain lactose. Our hemp protein is the good protein with balanced amino acid profile and containing all branched chain and essential amino acids. It is easily digested, so doesn’t lead to gas, bloating and abdominal discomfort.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2. Additives - many protein powders contain artificial extras that only hinder your health and fitness results. Avoid artificial sweeteners such as sucralose, Splenda (955), aspartame, equal, NutraSweet (951), and saccharin (954), as these are known to cause side effects such as headaches, migraines, bloating, acid reflux and weight gain. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Dextrin and maltodextrin are common fillers found in protein powders, whilst they can increase your glycemic load and make healthy weight management very difficult. Processed with GMO corn, these fillers not only cause digestive upset in some people, but GM crops are also grown with pesticides containing chemical compounds that may contribute to hormonal imbalance.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Plant Science Gut-Feeling contains only 3 plant based ingredients, is non-GMO and no additives, no added sugars, sweeteners or thickeners. Some of our customers with IBS even tolerate Gut-Feeling very well.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3. Purpose- the reason for incorporating a protein supplement into your diet is important. Whether for post-workout recovery, weight loss or simply boosting your proteins intake to help support muscle growth and development. Consider carbohydrate content-good for post-workout recovery not so great for weight loss due to boosting calorie content.
