5 Science Backed Reasons to Switch to Plant-Based Protein

Let’s start out by setting the record straight, when it comes to healthy living, choosing the right protein is CRUCIAL.

Why is choosing the right protein so important? Aren’t they all the same?


Saying all protein is the same is like saying every dog breed is the same.

So let’s cut the talk and get straight into the 5 scientific reasons why you should be making the switch to plant-based protein.

1.It’s Easy On The Stomach

Just sit there and nod your head if you have ever felt like this after drinking your protein shake…

  • Bloated
  • Gassy (it’s ok to admit it)
  • Abdominal discomfrot
  • Indigestion

If you are sitting there wide-eyed and nodding, know that there is a simple solution to these pains. But first, I’ll tell you why your stomach feels like Rocky Balboa is using it as a punching bag.

You are most likely having these pains and discomforts because you are drinking whey protein, which is the most commonly used protein powder.

Whey protein can be hard on the stomach because it is derived from milk and if your body does not have enough lactase, a digestive enzyme that breaks down lactose, it can cause discomfort.

Many of us have milk allergies or intolerances, making whey protein a poor supplement choice.

Whey protein can push our digestive system to its limit which causes a backlog of nutrients to be absorbed and indigestion to occur.

Now that you know why you haven’t been responding well your protein shake, let’s talk about the solution.

Plant based protein.

Plant based protein is free of any milk products, including lactose, so say goodbye to indigestion.

It also contains fiber and other digestive enzymes which helps your stomach process and move food properly.

Remember that no amount of gains or lean muscle is worth the  discomfort of drinking a protein shake that isn’t a match for you.

Your stomach is going to thank you for the switch.

2. Complete Protein, Complete You

Situation: You go to IKEA looking for a new chair and the salesman tries to sell you one of their brand new chairs, but there is one catch. This chair is missing a leg.

Would you buy it?

Seems like a no brainer right? Of course you wouldn’t because it’s not complete.

Similarly, you want to make sure your protein powder is a complete protein.

In order for a protein to be complete, it needs to have every essential amino acid. Essential amino acids cannot be made in our bodies, therefore it’s vital we get them from our food.

Many protein powders out there will boast about how they will help you get the gains and the tone that you have always wanted, but they don’t even give you all the amino acids necessary to achieve your goals.

A high-quality plant-based protein with all 9 essential amino acids can solve this problem.

You’ll get all the amino acids you need, plus extra antioxidants and enzymes for a healthy body.

3. Go Green With Plant Based Protein

Every single day there are countless numbers of animals and resources being used to sustain animal products, including protein powders.

Many animals are being mistreated because we are trying to get as much out of them as possible.

One step at a time we can start to stop these harmful things happening to our environment and innocent animals.

One of the things that you can do right now is to switch to plant-based protein.

Plant based protein consume far less water and produces only around 1/10th of the carbon emissions. They also have nothing to do with animals so you can feel happy not using them.

Drinking plant proteins is a simple way to go green in a world that seems to be heading in the opposite direction.

4. Protection Against Weight Gain With Plant Based Protein

We all know how it feels to have a little extra jiggle in your stomach or trying maybe a little too hard to fit into that old pair of jeans.

The last thing any of us want is to see the number slowly creep up on the scale.

Different kinds of proteins are able to help your appetite control mechanisms to tell your brain that you are full. This helps you say no to that extra helping of dinner and spare yourself of those extra calories.

But not all protein is created equal when it comes to appetite and weight control.

Plant based proteins are like the Draymond Green of proteins. They kick the competition away.

Scientific studies have shown that consuming plant-based proteins, specifically pea protein, will help

  • Increase your metabolism
  • Reduce appetite
  • Help support healthy blood sugar levels in normal ranges
  • Help control your sugar cravings.

Trust science, because It is finally time to take control of your body rather than have your body control you. Switch to plant based protein and feel the difference.

5. Health Benefits of Plant Based Protein

Why settle for a normal protein shake that only gives you protein? Why not get one that can actually boost your health too?

The additional health benefits that come from switching from your old protein to plant based protein is perhaps the biggest thing that sets plant based protein apart from others.

Just to name a few of the health benefits:

  • Reduced chance of high blood pressure
  • Promote heart health
  • Stronger immune system
  • Healthier skin

With a high-quality organic protein (like IdealRaw) you are getting much more than just amino acids, you are getting many essential vitamins and minerals.

Since all of the protein is derived from plants and organic sources you are getting many of the nutrients that are found in such sources.

Many of the additional nutrients you’ll find in organic plant proteins are:

  • Iron
  • Calcium
  • Omega-3 Fatty Acids
  • Zinc
  • B Vitamins
  • Fiber

And this is just to name a few.

All these things you can give your body just by making the switch to plant-based protein. It’s that easy!
