Echo Supplements on Reflex Vegan Protein
Reflex Vegan Protein is a high protein shake made from Pea Protein rather than the more traditional milk based proteins. The result of using peas is that you get a different amino acid profile, taste and price:
- Amino Acid Profile - You can find the full amino acid profile below but the main things to note are that pea protein is high in BCAAs, glutamine and arginine which is great for muscle building
- Taste - If you're used to the taste of milk based protein shakes (whey etc.) then Reflex Vegan Protein is going to taste different to what you're used to - the taste is a lot less sweet and has a slightly nutty taste to it; this isn't unpleasant but certainly different to whey shakes such as Reflex Instant Whey
- Price - Pea protein is a lot cheaper to buy than whey protein but delivers the same amount of protein (74%) if not more than most whey shakes on the market
Vegan Protein is also free of artificial sweetners and colourings so is a really healthy, natural choice of protein shake. Overall if you like the taste of Vegan Protein then it is a great way to save over £10 per tub on a high quality whey protein shake!

One of Nature's Best Proteins
The vegan sourced protein in Vegan Protein is made from a patented manufacturing process. The unique and environmentally friendly process extracts pure European pea protein from Pisum Sativum using water and no chemicals. This provides what Reflex Nutrition believe to be the perfect instant mixing vegan protein powder that is highly digestible and directly comparable to the best animal sources of protein like whey, eggs and milk. This great tasting instant mixing product provides 74% protein that has 98% digestibility and a great amino acid score of 95%.
Reflex Vegan Protein Contains More BCAA's, More Arginine & More Glutamine for the Athlete
The critically important branched-chain amino acids, L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine, which are responsible for building, repairing and maintaining muscle tissue are contained in abundance. In fact, pea protein contains more BCAA's than the best egg white protein. Further pea protein contains up to double the amount of arginine, responsible for growth, repair and nitric oxide synthesis, when compared to whey protein. Finally pea protein contains higher amounts of Glutamine compared to whey protein and egg protein. Overall the amino acid profile of pea protein is one the greatest for supplying sportsmen and women's most valuable amino acids.
A Vegan Protein that is Soy Free, Gluten Free and GM free
There are a number of vegan based proteins available but few can claim to be soy free, gluten free, GM free and be allergen free too. Not to mention the fact that the pea protein found in Vegan Protein is one the most environmentally sound proteins in the world, with an absence of nitrogen fertilizers from the growing process. The factory in which the pea protein is processed is dedicated to these pea products.
Vegan Protein is Sweetened with Stevia
Stevia is a collection of plants that have been used for hundreds of years for sweetening food and drinks. The natural sweetness of stevia is captured by steeping it in water and then purifying to provide a calorie-free sweet taste.
Reflex Vegan Protein contains added probiotics & digestive enzymes
Another big difference that sets Vegan Protein apart from the competition is the standard inclusion of the very special Digezyme digestive enzyme complex and LactoSpore probiotic spores. Digezyme has been extensively studied and may enhance protein digestion, whilst LactoSpore probiotic spores, similar to those found in yoghurt, may help support a healthy digestive system.
Impeccably Manufactured with Green Energy
Vegan protein is made in Reflex Nutrition's brand new state of the art facility in accordance with IS09001 quality control procedures - each and every batch of Vegan Protein is tested to ensure it meets labelled protein levels. You'll also be pleased to hear that Vegan Protein was manufactured using 100% deep green energy which is sourced completely from renewable sources.
