Vibrant Health, PureGreen Protein, Version 2.0, Mixed Berry, 16 oz (452.55 g)1 Review
Expiration Date: Aug 2016
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

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 juice, rice, or almond beverage, or water. Stir briskly. Drink and prosper.
PureGreen protein is packed by weight. Settling will occur during shipping.
