There are many reasons to consider plant based protein and supplements over the countless options on the market today. Some of the top reasons for a switch may be
- Dairy or lactose intolerance
- Some believe plant based causes less inflammation
- Many plant based supplements are more natural, less artifical
- In addition to protein, many also contain a great vegetable blend
These are not the only reasons people may try a plant based alternative, but they are certainly the most common we come across. Here is a quick highlight of Vega, a line we recently started carrying that contains high quality plant based products.
The Company itself
Vega was founded on a principle that nutrition should never be sacrificed for convenience. They commit to producing great quality supplements, with REAL food ingredients. In addition to that, they strive to reduce waste, and improve environmental awareness as well as protect sustainable farming practices.
The real part. The Products.
We currently only carry a select few products from Vega, but intend on increasing our offering from them over time. Here's a quick breakdown of what we do have so far.
Vega One - 20g of plant based protein from multiple sources, as well as a number of antioxidant providing fruit powders, and a good blend of vegetable powders as well. More than just a regular protein.
Protein & Greens - 20g of plant based protein from multiple sources, as well as spinach, beet root, broccoli, and kale powders for a boost of vitamins and nutrients not found in most standard proteins.
Vega Sport Hydrator - The vega sport hydrator provides a balanced dose of electrolytes, as well as food based vitamin C, and Calcium sourced from Marine Algae
Vega Sport Protein - 30g of plant based protein, from sources like pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and alfalfa seeds, along with strawberry and tart cherry, and a probiotic blend to aid digestion.
Vega Protein Snack Bar - This is a great tasting vegan snack option. Usually vegan bars don't have the best flavor profile. Packing in 10g of protein and 4g of fiber, these bars actually DO taste GREAT.
