Celarity Vegan Pro provides adequate, good-quality protein helps the body sustain proper functioning. For instance, the amino acid supply (from dietary protein) is used to build functional proteins needed for healthy immune function and to produce the enzymes and hormones needed for metabolism, digestion, and other important processes like detoxification and bone remodeling.[1-4].
Protein Vegan Pro is an excellent choice of supplementary protein for vegans and those who are sensitive to sugar (including lactose), sweeteners, or flavorings.[5-7] It is also free of gluten. Vegan Pro provides protein from pea and rice sources, avoiding major food allergens including milk, egg, soy, and wheat. The pea protein in Vegan Pro is non-GMO and is naturally obtained by simple water extraction, keeping all the nutritional qualities intact.
Aside from providing clean, easily digestible vegetable protein, the advantage of Vegan Pro is its flexibility. While other protein supplements provide high levels of various micronutrients, making it difficult to add protein to a patient’s nutritional protocol, Vegan Pro is not enriched with extra micronutrients. Therefore, practitioners can design personalized protocols for their patients by directing them to add selected supplements to a Vegan Pro shake or take encapsulated or tableted micronutrient supplements along with Vegan Pro. Additionally, Vegan Pro can easily be added to any functional food formula—if added protein is desired—without the concern of getting too much of any micronutrient. Because this formula is free of sugars and flavorings, it can be added to any approved beverage.
Celarity Vegan Pro is an excellent quality protein for dietetic foods must provide good basic nutritional quality, which, in this case, means a high protein level, a well-balanced amino acid profile, and good digestibility. At 98% digestibility, pea protein is considered highly digestible and matches that of beef, milk, and soy protein digestibility. The protein content of the pea protein features a well-balanced amino acid profile, including a high content of lysine, arginine, and branched-chain amino acids (leucine, isoleucine, and valine). Amino acid scoring provides a way to predict how efficiently protein will meet a person’s amino acid needs. Because pea protein alone is incomplete, combining it with rice protein makes Vegan Pro a complete protein with an amino acid score of 100%.
This amino acid is an energy substrate for most cells—especially intestinal epithelial cells and immune cells. It is also an essential component for numerous metabolic functions.[9,10]
Is an inhibitory (calming) neurotransmitter, is an important constituent of collagen and a building block for other substances such as coenzyme A, nucleic acids, creatine phosphate, purines, bile, and other amino acids.
Is a derivative of sulfur-containing cysteine with many healthful clinical applications, including the support of stable cell membranes, cardiovascular health, glucose tolerance, detoxification, and bile salt synthesis
