What Is Pea Protein?

I’ve heard so much about pea protein. But what is pea protein? I think it’s simply a plant based powder made out of peas. It’s usually used to increase the protein content in smoothies and shakes.  It’s also used in some packaged foods like veggie burgers, vegan mayo and a subsitutute for dairy in some ice creams.  Pea protein is made from extracting the powder from green and yellow split peas.  The peas are the same ones used to make split pea soup.  Pea protein is a healthy alternative to whey protein and other animal derived powders. There are also several other types of powders such as soy protein, rice protein, and hemp protein.

Plant Collagen by yoursuper review

I love this inspiring message You Are Never Too Old To Be Young! So much that I did some research and found Plant Collagen by yoursuper. This quote really has made an impact on me and helped me to live a healthier lifestyle. Collagen is naturally made in the body. It gives skin a youthful glow but as we get older collagen decreases due to stress, environment and aging. It’s in our bones, ligaments, muscles, tendons, organs, skin, intestinal lining and more. It is also a plentiful protein in the body that makes up more than any other protein in the body.
