But not all plants—or plant proteins—are alike or the best to use as a protein source.
(PRWEB) July 16, 2014
An article in the July 2014 Extraordinary Health Magazine stated, "Supplemental plant protein use is wildly popular these days. In fact, eating plants versus animal-sourced food, in general, has numerous health advantages and is becoming increasingly popular."
"But not all plants—or plant proteins—are alike or the best to use as a protein source. Some plant proteins are made with conventionally raised plants filled with pesticides and other toxins such as GMOs, or they offer incomplete proteins without adequate amino acids."
"Raw Protein is a complete, plant-based protein for everyone, including those on a vegan or vegetarian diet it is certified USDA Organic (no GMOs, synthetic fertilizers or pesticides which may be present in non-certified organic products). Raw Protein is also Non-GMO Project Verified."
In a recent interview, Gail Bowman, owner of Health Vitamins, said, "Customers ask me all the time if there is some way to make good tasting treats and smoothies for their families incorporating a little extra protein from one of Garden of Life's great Raw, plant based, protein powders. Everyone is trying to help their loved ones to be healthier and less toxic, these days. These recipes will help."
