Level up your protein for next-level performance. Help build and repair muscles, and recover post-workout with Vega Sport Performance Protein. Each serving has 30 grams protein from a complete multisource plant-based protein blend, 6 grams BCAAs, tart cherry, turmeric, and 1 billion CFU probiotics (bacillus coagulans).
- BCAAs: BCAAs (branched chain amino acids) are essential amino acids which must be consumed, they are not made by the body. Because BCAAs are metabolized in muscle tissue, rather than in your liver, so they can be used faster. BCAAs are included in Vega Sport Performance Protein to assist your body transition from breaking down muscle to the building stage after your workout.
- Complete Plant-Based Protein Blend: Vega Sport Performance Protein contains 25 grams of complete protein sourced from sprouted whole grain brown rice, pea, alfalfa, and SaviSeed protein. This combination contains a balanced amino acid profile.
- Glutamine: Build and repair muscle after your workout with glutamine. This amino acid helps repair and build muscle cells and is also a component of digestive and immune health.
- Improves Strength: Protein consumed after a workout helps your body rebuild muscle. This reduces recovery time and helps you to workout harder and more often.*
- Builds and Repairs Muscle: Repair and rebuilding muscle are part of recovery and are also needed to build strength. You have to break down muscle to make it stronger. The branched chain amino acids leucine, isoleucine and valine are included in Vega Sport Protein and act as signaling molecules to stimulate protein synthesis after exercise. They aid in transitioning your body from a catabolic (breaking down of muscle during exercise) to an anabolic (repair and rebuild) state. Glutamine is an additional amino acid which repairs muscle cells after exercise. Vega Sport Performance Protein contains 25 grams complete protein and 5,000 mg each of both BCAAs and L-glutamine.*
- Reduces Recovery Time: Beyond repairing muscle and building strength, immune function is another element of recovery. Vega Sport Performance Protein contains the amino acid L-Glutamine which is fuel for immune cells. Since intense exercise reduces glutamine in your blood, consuming 5,000 mg of glutamine in Vega Sport Performance Protein after exercise can help to support your immune system.*

The key ingredients of vision, determination and serendipity combined when Brendan Brazier and Charles Chang founded Vega. As a professional triathlete, Brendan Brazier, ecognized that nutrition made good athletes, great. As he self-experimented with different diet types, he realized that clean, plant-based nutrition was the competitive advantage he needed. After meeting Sequel Naturals founder Charles Chang, Brendan pitched the concept of an all-in-one nutritional shake that did not compromise quality, nourishing ingredients for convenience. Just like that, Vega’s first product—Whole Food Health Optimizer—was born. And that was just the beginning.
