Echo Supplements on Sci-MX Pro-VX Protein
Sci-MX Pro-VX Protein is a blend of several plant protein sources; soya, brown rice and peas. While you will probably be familiar with protein blends in general (for example Sci-MX's excellent GRS-5 Protein) the plant based protein sources are fairly new to the market - what is the difference?
The main difference between plant based proteins and milk based proteins is the amino acid profile - what it is made up of. If you get a fairly balanced diet then the amino acid profile of your protein shake won't make very much difference and both have their advantages and disadvantages - Pro-VX has a lot more arginine than Sci-MX GRS-5, but typically less leucine. Arginine is important for nitric oxide production whereas leucine more so for 'kickstarting' muscle repair. It is important to note though that both types of product contain all of the amino acids, and the differences are minimal.
Taste-wise Sci-MX Pro-VX is very creamy and has a bit of a nutty flavour compared to the more milk-like taste of GRS-5 Protein. One major advantage of choosing Sci-MX Pro-VX Protein though is the cost; at the time of writing it is almost 20% cheaper than GRS-5 Protein and actually contains more protein than GRS-5 Protein - whichever you choose you are getting a fantastic quality protein supplement!
This 900g tub contains 20 servings and will last most people around two weeks.
