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?
