PureGreen Protein: The Smart Alternative
Most of today’s meats and dairy products carry dangerous amounts of growth stimulant, antibiotic, and hormone contaminants. Plant proteins are free of those harmful substances. They can be used in place of animal protein, but only if all the essential amino acids are present in the right combination. Nearly all plant proteins lack one or more essential amino acids, or contain so little of one that it is as if the amino acid were absent. But a few plant proteins fare better. Pea protein ranks highly with an amino acid ratio roughly approximating human muscle. Spirulina protein and rice protein contain good amounts of all essential amino acids.
Matches Human Muscle
By combining a variety of plant proteins in correct amounts, and adding a few select free amino acids, we created a pure vegetable protein with an amino acid ratio that surpasses albumin and whey proteins, and is nearly equal to that of human muscle tissue. We call it PureGreen Protein. Non-GMO protein from pea, rice, spirulina and alfalfa are joined with four free amino acids (lysine, methionine, Threonine and valine) to create the first all vegetable protein ideally balanced for human compatibility.
Branched-Chain Amino Acids
Valine, leucine and isoleucine are the branched-Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs). They are responsible for muscle synthesis and repair. 75% of all BCAAs ingested by infants go to muscle synthesis. Athletes need them too for muscle building and endurance. BCAAs can be consumed for fuel during prolonged exercise. As they are lost, more tryptophan metabolites enter the brain, thereby raising serotonin levels. Elevated serotonin during exercise creates a sense of fatigue. Supplemental BCAAs may reduce perceived exertion and mental fatigue during prolonged exercise by supporting normal BCAA: tryptophan ratios, thereby limiting increased synthesis of serotonin in the brain.
As a dietary supplement, once each day - or more often if you would like - mix one level scoop (enclosed) of PureGreen Protein into 8 ounces of your favorite fruit juice, rice or almond beverage, or water. Stir briskly. Drink and prosper.

iHerb Customer Reviews
This stuff is great. If you like peas, you will like this. I just wish the price could be a bit lower since this is only 15 days worth or 7 if you do 2 scoops along with a work out... Always makes me feel great though.
