It’s no secret that just about anyone you meet feels stressed, under pressure – even teens! This is a side effect of modern life where we are always connected via digital and computer devices and social media – which demand more of our attention, energy and time. This, in conjunction with school and work duties, home life and ensuring bills are paid, create the desire among many Americans to be as fit and healthy as possible to be able to take on these life pressures and enjoy quality of being.
When keeping fit, protein powder is the popular choice for people to help recover strength and build up muscles to promote a leaner, more effective body mass. [1] [2]
In both brick-and-mortar and internet retail, it is common to find whey proteins and soybean
proteins, the two leading type of protein powders. However, whey protein is not vegetable protein, and is therefore not suitable for vegans. Additionally, among many with sensitivities whey may cause indigestion, abdominal distension or lactose allergy. Meanwhile, soybean protein is suitable for vegans, but it is also a common allergen and can also cause indigestion and flatulence. Additionally, soy contains phytoestrogens – genistein and daidzein – which men may want to stay away from. [6]
Vegetable protein possesses some unique characteristics compared to animal protein. First, it is abundant in various amino acids (protein building blocks) and key nutrients including antioxidants in a balanced content. [7] Secondly some studies have suggested vegetable proteins support healthy blood pressure and cholesterol profiles. Also, vegetable protein is much more easily absorbed than animal protein. [6]
As a supplier that focuses on launching both popular and innovative ingredients, Cactus Botanics has just launched two unique vegetable proteins -- Pumpkin Protein Powder, and Hemp Protein Powder.
Pumpkin Protein Powder:
Supports serotonin production (tryptophan)
Naturally improves mood balance
Magnesium and zinc content plays roles in enzyme reactions and muscle growth [5]
Supports recovery of impaired tissues and cells [5] [1]
Offers an attractive macro-nutrient profile (monounsaturated fat, carbohydrate and fiber), making it a perfect fitness powder. [3] [4]
Hemp Protein Powder:
a kind of integrated protein rich in Omega-3 fatty acid, vitamin, minerals and fiber.
Hypoallergenic protein, suitable for people who are allergic to egg, milk, gluten and soybeans.
Rich in heart-healthy omega-3 EFAs, vitamins, minerals and fiber
Promotes muscle growth and recovery [7] [5]
Supports thermogenesis and lessens catabolism [4]
Easily digested and absorbed because hemp protein’s albumin and edestin structure is similar to blood protein. [6]
Cactus Botanics’ world-class laboratory analyzed these two protein powders, and finds both are rich in amino acids:
Glutamic Acid Arginine Aspartic Acid Leucine Glycine Serine
Phenylalanine Valine Alanine Lysine Proline Isoleucine
Tyrosine Threonine Histidine Methionine Tryptophan Cystine
