Lifematrix Pea & Hemp Protein Powder provides a well-rounded amino acid blend. The amino acid profile of pea protein is somewhat low in the sulphur-containing amino acids, cysteine and methionine, but hemp, which is rich in these aminos, helps balance that. The pea/hemp combo delivers a 74% protein concentrate. Suitable for vegans and anyone who needs to increase their protein intake. All Lifematrix protein powders are free of ANY additives; just 100% pure protein. They can be used in smoothies, blended with juices or used to protein-enrich soups, stews and curries. They can also be used in baking.

Eight essential amino acids and their main functions;
Valine, a branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) that works with the other two BCAAs, isoleucine and leucine, to promote normal growth, repair tissues, regulate blood sugar and provide energy
Isoleucine, increases endurance and aids in muscle repair as well as clotting, when injured.
Leucine, works with the amino acids isoleucine and valine to repair muscles, regulate blood sugar and increase energy levels. Further to aiding in the production of growth hormones and burning visceral fat
Phenylalanine, required for the normal functioning of the central nervous system, it balances mood and acts as an anti-depressant.
Methionine, required to produce antioxidant glutathione. Needed to produce amino acids, cysteine and taurine, that help the body eliminate toxins, build healthy tissue and promote cardiovascular health.
Threonine, promotes growth by maintaining the protein balance within the body.
Tryptophan, required for production of serotonin, vitamin B3 or niacin, and auxin
Lysine, involved in the production off antibodies for a strong, healthy immune system
Unlike proteins that are derived from animal products, plant proteins do not increase your chances of chronic illness, but care must be taken to combine foods so that the body receives all eight essential amino acids. It is not necessary to eat all essential amino acids in one sitting as the body retains a ‘pool’ of amino acids over a 24 hour period that it can pull from.
Lifematrix’s Pea and Hemp Protein powder is a complete protein powder that contains all eight essential amino acids and can be safely used as a protein source by vegans and athletes.
Pea proteinhas shown to decrease muscle breakdown after work outs further to aiding in weight loss by delaying emptying of the stomach. Pea protein is one of the few plant sources of Vitamin D, studies on the protein have shown that supports heart health by lowering blood pressure further to delaying or preventing chronic kidney disease (CKD). Pea protein can also prevent diabetes and aid diabetics as it regulates blood sugar levels.
A study published by the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition proved that Pea protein is as effective as whey protein in promoting muscle thickness, this is due to its high levels of Arginine, a BCAA that is crucial for building muscles.
Hemp proteinboosts immunity and improves fatigue, it is an antioxidant with an ideal ratio of Omega 3 and 6 that promotes cardiovascular and heart health. Omega 6 has numerous benefits and studies have shown that it increases bone density in woman with osteoporosis. Rich in fibre hemp seed powder aids in digestion and removal of toxins within the body. Hemp seeds also have high levels of Chlorophyll which is anti-inflammatory and balances hormones, assists with wound healing along with detoxification in the body.
A source of all eight essential amino acids and arginine, hemp protein aids in muscle building and repair as well as immune function.
