Vegan Pea Protein Overview: Benefits, Dosages, Side Effects, and More

Vegan Pea Protein Overview

"Pea protein is one of the most effective plant proteins on the market. With a complete amino acid profile and high bioavailability, vegans can't go wrong when choosing pea protein."

-Article written by Ethan Wood, CPT & Registered Nutritionist


Why Use a Protein Supplement?

Protein supplements can be a convenient way to help meet your daily protein needs. For example, vegans may find it difficult to consume enough protein through their diet alone. 

The average individual looking to improve health and/or body composition should be consuming 0.7g-1g of protein per 1lb of body weight each day.

According to Medical News Today1, protein powders can help build muscle, repair tissue, and make enzymes and hormones. They may also aid weight loss and help people tone their muscles. 

A 2018 analysis of 49 studies supports the use of protein supplementation for muscle growth and strength in healthy adults who perform resistance exercise training2.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Pea protein powder is generally well tolerated and does not tend to cause gassiness or bloating like whole peas can for some people3. 

However, at extremely high doses, your liver may struggle to process protein fast enough, causing side effects like high levels of ammonia in the blood, nausea, diarrhea and even death34.

It is important to note that most people who use pea protein powder add it to smoothies or mix it with juice or water as a post-workout beverage3.
