I never thought in a million years, I would be using vegan anything. Ask my wife. I [probably like you] am a meat guy. I get all my protein from animal sources with my post-workout protein coming from whey. The closest thing I’d ever thing I’d get to vegan is admitting the fact that my whey shake is from “grassfed” cows.

I mean, what kind of self-proclaimed meathead uses vegan protein?
This guy [at least for now].

In addition to eating my steak, chops, eggs, chicken, and turkey, I decided to give this vegan protein shake a shot few a couple key reasons:

[KEY REASON 1:] To expand my daily amino acid profile. You should get your protein from different sources. The protein sources you eat all have different amino acid make ups. Just like it’s best to mix and match different sources from your animal protein, it’s best to mix and match different sources from your shakes if you drink them. This will fuel your body with different aminos at different times and give you a broader spectrum of amino acids from various complete sources.

[NOTE:] Higher amounts annotated in orange font. The vegan is the clear winner in powerhouse amino acids like supplying almost 4 x the Arginine (aids nitric oxide production) of the whey protein and supplying 6.027 grams of BCAAs [stimulate protein synthesis] vs. the whey’s 4.481 grams.

[KEY REASON 2:] The fact that this vegan shake has greens powder actually in it. Greens powder has taken the supplement industry by storm. If you’re like me, you’re probably not eating enough greens through the day. This means your missing out on nutrients, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that can help improve your health, vitality, and recovery. If you don’t want to buy a separate greens powder, this is the shake for you.

[In case you were wondering – essential means your body can not produce those amino acids, so they must be obtained from an outside source like your shake.]

If you’re looking to expand your amino profile and fuel your workouts, you just might want to give the Vegan Shake + Greens a shot. It’s combination of the different amino acid profile combined with its blend of 6 servings of fruits and veggies (blueberries, blackcurrants, elderberries, apple, banana, spinach, cabbage, asparagus, kale, broccoli) could be the missing link to take your muscle building and strength to the next level.
