Amino Z Organic Vegan Protein Blend + Matcha
Going vegan is a decision that makes so much sense for so many people -- but that doesn't make it easy.
Especially when it comes to protein powders.
In fact, for the longest time the entire supplement market was saturated with protein powders made from dairy-based products, and nothing from plant-based sources. However, over the last few years we have seen a number of different options become available, many of which are perfect for those of you who follow a vegan diet.
Which is what led us to create what we believe to be the best vegan protein powder on the market.
But wait -- we didn't stop there.
After we created the perfect vegan protein powder, we decided to make it better by including matcha powder into the mix. This means that it not only increases your protein intake, but that it also elicits a number of other unique benefits as well.
So, what are the benefits of our Organic Vegan Protein + Matcha Blend?
Promotes Muscle Growth
In the simplest sense, training in the gym is a way of placing stress on your body. This stress acts as a stimulus that tells your body it needs to grow bigger and stronger to better tolerate that same stress in the future .
It is this process that drives muscle growth.
Now, the kicker here is that for muscle growth to occur, you need to have the compounds used to create new muscle tissue readily available -- i.e. protein.
With this in mind, our organic vegan protein matcha blend offers the perfect way to increase your protein intake and facilitate muscle growth.
Assist With Fat Loss
When it comes to fat loss, this supplement attacks it from two distinct angles.
Firstly, protein is extremely satiating. This means that it makes you feel fuller for longer when compared to fats and carbohydrates. As such, consuming our protein powder can actually lead to less snacking throughout the day .
Secondly, the matcha component causes an immediate increase in energy expenditure after it has been consumed. Within this, it also contains important antioxidants that facilitate your bodies ability to break down fat for energy .
This means that it can help you burn more energy on a daily basis, while ensuring that more of that energy comes from fat.
Gentle on the Digestive System
One of the biggest knocks on whey protein powders is that they contain a heap of lactose, which can actually cause quite a bit of digestive distress.
Obviously vegan protein blends do not contain any lactose (because they are not derived from dairy), which makes them a better option in this regard -- but more importantly, they also contain a number of digestive enzymes.
These enzymes help you break down the food you eat, placing less stress on your digestive system.
So, if you are someone prone to stomach discomfort, look no further.
Now we would argue that one of the best times to take protein powder is actually 30-60 minutes before you workout because it ensures that you have a steady stream of amino acids entering your body as you train.
But when combined with matcha, you actually get an additional benefit in that it boosts attention and focus -- which can also help you get more out of your workout .
See, matcha powder contains caffeine. As most of you would know, caffeine is a psychoactive compound that improves attention, focus, and mental clarity -- all of which come with a powerful “energy boosting” feeling.
Within this it also contains the compound “l-theanine”.
L-theanine is an amino acid that has been shown to improve mood and wellbeing, while also increasing mental acuity. However, it does so in a way that compliments caffeine, where it helps mitigate some of the “jittery” effects that can be associated with caffeine, rather than add to them.
All of which means it creates much better workouts.
Greater Gym Performance
And finally, many of the compounds found in matcha actually improve exercise performance -- making it the perfect addition to your pre-workout shake.
As outlined above, many of the compounds found in matcha work by making fat more available for energy. While this is great for fat loss, it also improves exercise performance -- especially when we consider that fat is one of your body's main sources of energy.
In short, by increasing your access to fat, matcha causes a subsequent increase in exercise performance .
If we were to transfer this effect to a gym environment, you are looking at more reps per exercise, and more total load lifted over the duration of a gym session -- all of which means more muscle growth over the course of a training block.
Our organic vegan protein powder with matcha not only offers one of the highest quality vegan protein powders on the market, but does so with all the added benefits of matcha powder -- boosting your results in a big way.
And when you consider that it contains no harmful additives and is completely cruelty free, you could not ask for more.
