Wowsers! Brendan Brazier and his team at Vega deserve a round of applause for this mix. It’s important to note that this is called a performance protein mix, Vega Sport Performance Protein is not just a protein mix. This is because it’s specially developed to aid recovery: reduce inflammation, restore glycogen, rehydrate. This mix packs 5,500 mg of amino acids (BCAA’s) including 13 of the 15 essential amino acids into a single serving of this protein based recovery drink. The only ones not featured in this mix are the animal based ones. It also contains 500 mg of glutamine to help aid muscle repair making it a dream recovery mix for vegans and non vegans alike.
The mix dissolves well in a variety of liquids. We’ve tried it in things ranging from water to almond milk, and everything tastes great and retains a nice flavor. The singles are a nice way to not have to lug around a tub of mix in your workout bag, and still get recovery to your muscles within that precious 30 minutes window. This is truly a plant-based protein drink can compete with all others recovery mixes the market.
