Protein for Vegetarians

Amount and Type of Proteins Crucial to Sports Performance

Brendan BrazierBrendan Brazier - developer of Vega Whole Food Health Optimizer and author of The Thrive Diet - here is a man we greatly admire for his dedication and contribution not only to the world of athletics, but also to the knowledge contributed and his advocacy on the subject of world hunger. In 2006, Brendan was asked to speak before the US Congress on the subject of the social and economic benefits of improving personal health through a healthy diet.

Brendan is an athlete, more specifically a  professional Ironman triathlete and two-time 50km Canadian ultramarathon champion. As a teenager, he decided to become a vegan. Many around him said that being a vegan and an athlete, particularly an endurance athlete, were incompatible.

Brendan was determined to prove to both himself and his critics that this was, in fact, not the case. Unfortunately, in the early going, it seemed that his critics may have been correct in that Brendan's performance levels did decline.

Brendan was quite perplexed by this as he felt he was doing everything he could nutiritonally to perform at his best. Fortunately for us, Brendan's curiosity and determination led him into the world of research to find out why his performance was subpar and to do something about it, if he could. The final result of all his research was the creation of a  blended plant-based whole food drink formula that he has used himself for over 15 years called Vega, and the writing of a book on the subject of his eating habits, The Thrive Diet.

The beauty of people like Brendan is that he did all the research and product development so that we don't have to. All we need to do is review the findings in his book and purchase Vega. Vega is a complete whole food health optimizer. It is a natural plant-based formula.

It contains the optimum amount and types of proteins necessary for vegetarians (and anyone, for that matter) to perform their best. It also contains Omega 3 EFAs, fiber, antioxidants and phytonutrients. It is alkaline-forming and easy to digest.

1 serving of Vega is the equivalent of the following:

protein = 4 large eggs
fiber = 4 slices of whole wheat toast
calcium = 8 oz of milk
chlorophyll = 1 head of lettuce
omega 3 = 8 oz of wild salmon
magnesium = 2 oz of almonds
vitamin E = 3 cups of spinach
iron = 4 oz of beef
antioxidants = 1 cup of blueberries
potassium = 2 bananas
