What is protein?
Protein is one of 3 macronutrients, along with fat and carbs, that your body requires for life. Protein is made up of chains of linked amino acids, and the body breaks these down to be absorbed.
What does protein do?
Your cells use protein as fuel and as building blocks for structure and tissue including muscle, blood, bone, skin, and hair.
Why plant protein?
Health experts recommend varying your protein choices, and having vegetarian options often. Many people also want plant foods cultivated with Non-GMO and organic techniques, because they are better for the planet. It’s easy to add plant protein to your day with a high-quality vegan supplement like Complete Organic Plant Protein+ from New Chapter.
Do I need a protein supplement?
For adults, the RDA (recommended dietary allowance) for daily protein is 0.8 grams for every kilogram of body weight (or 0.36 grams per pound). Using this math, a 130-pound woman (59 kg) should aim to get 47 grams of protein per day. Plant Protein+ supplement provides 20 g vegan complete protein per serving—building blocks for any lifestyle.
Keep in mind that a dietary supplement goes beyond just filling nutritional needs, as it’s targeted to provide health benefits. Plant Protein+ promotes muscle repair and recovery,* and adds herbal benefits from superfoods including organic Turmeric or Beet extract. More than just a delicious snack, you can count on this 100% vegan protein choice to support your health goals every day.
What are vegan amino acids?
Amino acids are the building blocks of protein—so any protein, vegan or not, is from amino acids. Plant Protein+ builds complete protein with the right profile of amino acids from multiple protein-rich vegan sources, including Mung Bean and Brown Rice (this combo is a gentle, soothing food in the Ayurvedic tradition), and whole-food seeds such as Flax, Chia, Pumpkin, and Sunflower. A great choice for meeting protein recommendations whether you’re vegan, vegetarian, flexitarian, or even mainly carnivorous.
How do I pick the best protein powder for me?
New Chapter has two formulations: Original supports everyday health, and Fuel & Replenish supports active lifestyles and enhances workout recovery.* Choose if you want to stock up on chocolate, vanilla, or both.
Is whey vegan?
Nope—whey protein is a dairy byproduct. If you’re looking for a complete protein source that doesn’t come from animals, you’ll want a precise combination of some of the best vegan protein sources, like grains and legumes. Read labels and look for “complete” and “vegan” to be sure you’re meeting your needs.
Why would I reconsider taking a pea, soy or whey protein isolate?
Research shows that isolates, like whey isolate or pea or soy isolate, can be difficult to digest. (No coincidence that milk & soy are also common allergens.) That difficulty in digestion from whey, pea, or soy gives you that overfull, gassy feeling—bloated and uncomfortable. Good news though: Research also shows that combining high-quality plant protein with a digestive enzyme boosts rapid, effective absorption of amino acids. The enzymes work to rapidly break down the protein, thereby reducing gas and bloating. Plant Protein+ is formulated with clinically studied digestive enzymes for better absorption and easier digestion—preventing bloating.*
What is the “Fill Line” on my protein powder label?
Our protein blend of powdered foods and enzymes tends to be fluffier and more aerated when the canister is first filled. Over time, such as during transport and normal shelf-life, the blend settles and becomes more compressed. So while it may appear that the canister is not completely full when you first open it, please don’t worry! Each flavor and formula is measured and filled by weight, not volume—and you’re getting exactly the weight that’s labeled. We’ve added the “fill line” on the label to help you gauge possible settling.
