Yes, it has all of the essential as well as many non-essential amino acids. It is also naturally high in branch chain amino acids which help your body to recover faster.
What are the benefits of pea protein?
There are many benefits to using pea protein. However, the main ones are that it is easy to digest and assimilate, therefore aiding in faster muscle recovery and that is hypo-allergenic. Furthermore, the specific pea protein we have sourced is not processed or extracted using any chemicals and is therefore the ‘cleanest’ protein available.
What do you use to sweeten your products?

Do you use any artificial ingredients or preservatives?
No. We do use processed ingredients and extracts, but they are all from a natural, non-chemical/petrochemical source. We do not use preservatives, fillers or texturisers in our products.
Do any of your products contain GMOs?
No, all of our ingredients are certified non-GMO.

However, the more active one is, the more protein one requires.

Can I use a Sport shake if I am pregnant?

However, we do recommend that you discuss the use of any supplement while you are pregnant with your doctor to ensure that you do not duplicate nutrients across different products and potentially ingest more than the RDA for any particular vitamin or mineral.

How does your 3-in-1 Energiser work?
Our 3-in-1 Energiser helps the body to create energy naturally. We recommend consistent once-daily use even when not exercising. It may take up to 3 weeks to notice a difference. This is not a product full of caffeine or stimulants as we believe that using stimulants will result in lower natural energy levels over the long term.
3-in-1 vs. Nitro Blast?
The 3-in-1 Energiser has numerous uses as its name suggests. It may be used pre, during or post workout. It is an electrolyte fix, fat burner and energy booster. It may also be used in conjunction with Nitro Blast. For simplicity though, we recommend 3-in-1 for resistance training and Nitro Blast for cardio. For endurance we would recommend using Nitro Blast pre-workout and 3-in-1 during and / or after.
