Naturade Soy-Free Veg Protein Booster is an important product for people who exclude meat and dairy from their usual diet but whose system doesn't tolerate soy. Naturade Soy-Free Veg is pure vegetable protein. This unique blend of high-quality protein from pea, rice, potato, barley and spirulina provides a balanced supply of amino acids. Methionine and lysine are added to match the amino acid profile of animal protein. This all-natural product has absolutely no animal, egg or dairy derivatives. Protein supplies the amino acids your body needs to support the growth of all blood cells, muscle and other tissues. In addition, protein is needed to produce hormones such as insulin, antibodies to fight disease and the enzymes that are essential for digestion. Naturade Soy-Free Veg assures that you get all the amino acids in the right proportion, including all the essential amino acids that your body can't produce on its own. Naturade Soy-Free Veg is fortified with 100% of the daily value of vitamin B-12, plus 8 mg of iron and 150 mg of calcium per serving. The amount of these nutrients is usually inadequate in an all-vegetable diet. Naturade Soy-Free Veg is formulated with pea protein that has not been genetically modified. So you can confidently add protein to the foods and drinks you prepare with low carbohydrates and no added sugar.
