When people choose a Vegan approach to nutrition, they usually do it because they want to live a healthier life! And, healthy it can be. However, packing your diet regularly with foods like lentils, tofu and legumes doesn’t always mean your protein intake is sufficient. If you are deficient in methionine, you are not reaping the full benefits of those protein sources.
Methionine is an essential amino acid—one of the building blocks of protein that’s not made by the human body; people must get it through diet and nutrition. There are significantly higher levels of methionine in animal foods, so those who follow a plant-based diet are potentially at risk for methionine deficiency. Not to worry though—the right supplement can ensure that your body optimizes every gram of protein.
UNJURY® Vegan Protein Enhancer is a methionine supplement. Adding the Vegan Protein Enhancer improves the amino acid profile of pea protein and enhances the overall quality. Using UNJURY® Vegan Protein Enhancer with Planted™ Protein brings the PDCAAS (protein score) up to a 96 out of 100.
