Yellow pea protein contains an amino acid profile comparable to that of whey protein, with very high levels of branched chain amino acids to support healthy muscle synthesis and repair. Organic Select Pea™ is also notably high in the amino acids lysine, glutamine and arginine. Arginine, a conditionally essential amino acid which may become rapidly depleted during stress and other catabolic states, promotes growth hormone release and has been shown to enhance recovery after exercise. It is a component of energy-boosting creatine and participates in the synthesis of nitric oxide, a molecule that helps promote vessel relaxation, healthy blood flow and the efficient delivery of oxygen to cells.
Recent research suggests that yellow pea protein offers numerous benefits. Animal studies suggest it may help support healthy lipid levels within the normal range. Yellow pea protein has been shown in animal and human studies to have a positive impact on total and LDL cholesterol by downregulating genes involved in fatty acid synthesis and upregulating genes responsible for uptake of cholesterol in the liver. Pea protein also has a naturally low glycemic index and has been found to promote feelings of satiety and fullness, making it useful in helping to control appetite and support healthy blood sugar levels.
