Algal, Sacha Inchi, Yellow Pea, and Spirulina provide 21 grams of protein. This strong protein combination curbs hunger, provides Omega 3,6,9 fatty acids (in proper ratios), detoxifies, is low in carbs, boosts immunity, and is easily absorbed. Pro Matcha protein contains all essential amino acids and branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs). Amino acids, the building blocks of proteins, have various functions related to energy production. There are 9 essential (must get from our diets) amino acids and 12 non-essential (produced by the body) amino acids. BCAAs represent 40% of the daily requirement of all 9 essential amino acids. BCAAs have been used to prevent fatigue, improve concentration, and to avoid or lessen sore muscles after exercise. Exercise creates an increase in serotonin levels, which can reduce stress but can also cause fatigue. BCAAs are believed to decrease serotonin levels, thus cancelling out the fatigue from exercise and enhancing exercise performance. Additionally, BCAAs have been shown to help with muscle synthesis and preventing muscle loss.
