Guilt-free recovery.

Choosing between the bevy of protein shake options on the market can seriously get in the way of your training time, so opting for Vega's Sport Protein is a good way to simplify one of the most complicated aspects of serious endurance athletics. You've got a 140.6 in 4 months, a 70.3 in two, and an assortment of shorter training races in-between. You don't have time to navigate hyperbolic claims and sort through sugar-filled calorie bombs masquerading as "fuel"; you just need to swim, bike, and run.

Vega is a plant-based nutrition company that adheres to gluten-free, non-GMO, and Vegan standards when concocting its supplements, enabling you to boost your training and support healthy muscle recovery without ingesting a host of questionable ingredients.

Inside a serving of its Sport Protein, you'll find 30g of protein, 6g of BCAA's, 6g of glutamine, as well as Tart Cherry, probiotics, and tumeric, all of which work to speed up recovery time and help with muscle repair after you put yourself through a brutal brick workout or a punishing session on the track. You won't find any added sugar, gluten, or animal products in the powder, so you can mix it up 45-90 minutes post-effort without any guilt, then get ready for your next workout.

Vanilla!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've been a fan of Vega products for a few years and usually prefer chocolate in their products but find that the chocolate in the new formulation is a little too sweet for my taste. Vanilla, however, is just right. Besides the taste I appreciate that its plant-based and provides 6g of glutamine, a component I've found to be a essential for recovery.

Complete plant-based protein

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I switched to Vega Sport Protein after using Vega Protein & Greens for about a year. I wanted more protein than the other mix had and really had no need for the veggie powder...I eat a lot of veggies already. This product tastes much better in my opinion as well.

I've used this after big rides and as a quick option for breakfast. Leaves me feeling satisfied and no bloated feeling like some other mixes can do.

Good Stuff

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've tried a few different Vega Proteins, all taste good and do a good job as far as shortening recovery, this one is a finer powder and comes with a bigger scoop than the others. Mixes up fairly easily and comes out a little thicker than others but tastes great and seems to definitely help shorten recovery time. Haven't used a Vega product I didn't like.

Fantastic Recovery Option (or Breakfast)

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have been utilizing VEGA products to recover from my shorter rides (under 90 minutes), and other workouts that will leave me needing to build some muscle. In the past I have used very expensive options from the body building world; I can honestly say that I have not noticed any difference in recovery or maintenance of muscle in using VEGA's protein, and the texture and flavor is outstanding!

If you are looking for a recovery drink that isn't packed with carbs, give this one a go!

If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch with me directly.

Back in the gym!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Recently went back to working out in a gym environment after injury. I haven't done this strenuous of workouts in a while and I found I was getting very sore for days at a time. Picked this stuff up and I feel way better the next day after the gym.

I wanted to try the mocha, but went with the chocolate since mocha was out of stock. It doesn't taste like a beautiful chocolate shake, but it is also not overly sweet or sugary like other proteins I have had.

It mixes well and so far I do not have any complaints. Just with the bottle was bigger!

Works wonders!

    Recently switch to a plant base diet, and was worried about the supplements that I was taking before while working out, this is definitely an amazing complement to my diet and to my workouts, I feel great after every work out, I bike everyday and lift a little after every workout, the pain never gets to bad, the vega protein does help you to recover pretty quick.
