L-Theanine L-theanine is an amino acid found almost exclusively in the tea plant. It’s been shown to positively modify alpha brain waves and key neurotransmitters involved in enhanced mood, focus, and memory.
It also enhances the production of neurotransmitters dopamine and serotonin and plays a rolein the formation of GABA that helps reduce the levels of stress.
METABOLISM BOOSTERS By and large, plant proteins take longer to digest than carbohydrates and fats—because of their fiber contents. The more your body works on metabolizing the plant proteins that you’ve consumed, the better it is at burning those extra pounds that you are trying to get rid of.
HELP FIGHT A NUMBER OF DISEASES Diets rich in plant-based protein powders have been shown to significantly lower the risk of certain ailments such as heart diseases. Additionally, past studies have also indicated that vegetarians tend to have half the risk of developing diabetes than their non-vegetarian counterparts.
CONTAIN LESS ANTIBIOTICS AND HORMONES Animal protein powders (like casein and whey) contain high levels of hormones and antibiotics because they are sourced cheaply and are associated with a lot of additives, fillers, and other things that shouldn’t be in health supplements. While plant-based proteins are free from these harmful elements, not all of them are created equal. It is, therefore, critical to find out why the ingredients that you are about to put into your body are sourced from.
