What about the protein and amino acid content?

Many so called “quality” protein supplement companies utilize cheap fillers, excipients in conjunction with non-standard testing methods to “claim” higher protein content in their products. As our name suggests, we strive to keep all our formulas free of harmful or cheap fillers/ingredients and go through the extra effort to disclose all ingredients including the amino acid profile of our protein powders. Be wary of protein powder labels that do not disclose the amino acid profile – they are likely hiding something. This profile shows you exactly what’s in the formula in addition to the pea protein blend and nutrition facts. The balanced amino acid profile in our protein powder (score of 100%) is crucial in formulating highly effective food supplements that promote healing benefits. The highest amino acid level in our formula is Glycine. The numerous researched and published benefits of Glycine are well established and widely known. A few of these include: promotes muscle growth, repairs and protects joints and cartilage, improves digestion, slows effects of aging, calms nerves, feeds the brain, fights fatigue and promotes restful sleep.*
