"A complete multi-source, alkaline-forming, plant-based protein blend, featuring 5,500mg of BCAAs and 5,000mg of glutamine per serving, Vega Sport Performance Protein is formulated to:
• Improve strength and exercise performance
• Repair and build muscles
• Reduce recovery time between training
The recent innovation to Vega Sport Performance Protein comes from the addition of SaviSeed (sacha inchi) protein, a rich, plant-based source of the amino acid tryptophan. Tryptophan is a key component of serotonin production(1). Serotonin—the feel good hormone—helps with the mental aspect of recovery, so you’ll keep the drive alive and be motivated to train again.
Take Vega Sport Performance Protein within 30 to 90 minutes of your workout or throughout the day to meet your individual protein needs to recharge and repair so you can do it all again, sooner. For optimal results, use in conjunction with Vega Sport Recovery Accelerator.
Available in Vanilla, Chocolate and Berry flavors."

I've been searching for a decent - not even great, just tolerable - vegan protein powder for over a year and had no luck. Everything I tried either had a barely-palatable texture, an overwhelmingly powerful chalky taste, or simply did not provide an acceptable macronutrient breakdown for a post-workout supplement. Enter Vega Performance Protein: it's incredible. Now, I don't mix it only with water as the label suggests, but put it in a smoothie with a frozen banana, chia seeds, strawberries, and coconut water... let me tell you, it's actually crave-able. I had held off in trying any Vega products since they're pretty expensive, but it's totally worth the extra cost.
