Plant based or Whey Protein?

Before I started using plant based nutrition, I would use whatever Whey protein brand that was recommended. I never had a favourite but always chose the name brands that were easily found on a shelf.

I never really enjoyed it and I always found I had a hard time digesting it.

One year ago I got my hands on a Vegan protein powder. And since then, I have never looked back or used anything else.

So why Plant based vs Whey Protein for me?

Benefits of Plant Based:

🌱20 grams of protein derived from peas, cranberries and brown rice

🌱20 Essential vitamins and minerals to support healthy living inside and out

🌱Dairy, Gluten and Soy FREE

🌱Easier to digest

🌱Clean ingredients

🌱No artificial flavours, colours or sweeteners

🌱Non-GMO

🌱19 amino acids including all 9 essential amino acids to help build and repair body tissues

Whey Protein:

✖️Whey is dairy and more and more people have intolerances

✖️Harder to digest and can cause constipation, bloating, has, stomach cramps

✖️Can be highly acidic

✖️Majority of brands use artificial sweeteners, flavours and colours

✖️High doses of whey may cause acne

✖️Less nutrients

My choice is clear. What’s your go to?
