With all of protein sources available, it turns out that the pea protein + rice protein combination yields the best combination of all while being 100% hypoallergenic! Rice protein is high in cysteine and methionine, but tends to be low in lysine, and pea protein is low in cysteine and methionine, but is high in lysine. By combining the two, you get a protein source that yields a complete protein comparable to whey and eggs.
Arbonne Fit Essentials Protein is the best protein for daily use, and for a detoxification diet. It contains pea / rice protein combination, along with the addition of cranberry protein. Cranberry protein is a fantastic addition to this formula because it is a complete protein source, and is antioxidant rich!
Fit Essentials protein is 100% vegan, and is vegan certified!
It also contains a powerful blend of Coenzyme Q10. CoQ10 is a fantastic vitamin like supplement that has powerful effects on the cardiovascular system, including the ability to lower blood pressure and prevent congestive heart failure. IT has also shown a positive effect on increased HDL cholesterol, and alleviating migraine headaches!
In addition, this protein contains absolutely no trans fat, no artificial color, no artificial flavor, no soy and no whey! Finally, unlike most protein supplements available today, Arbonne's protein contains 0 Sucrolose. In fact, it is sweetened with all natural Stevia and sugar cane! It also has a complete amino acid profile for muscle building.
But what about the taste? The first thing you will notice is that this protein smells delicious. Both the vanilla and the chocolate have very natural aromas! The next thing is the texture. This protein mixes easily in a shaker cup, and is as smooth as silk even when mixed with plain water. I like to mix it with unsweetened almond milk and it has the consistency of a recently melted milk shake! The flavors are both delicious! I do serve the shakes to my kids and they LOVE it! They actually fight over who gets the biggest serving! Adding frozen berries can change the flavor and make for an awesome smoothie treat!
