5 Benefits of Plant-Based Protein

Curious about plant-based protein? Wondering if it’s right for you? There are many benefits, and we’ve got a solid five to share with you today.

Great for People with Dairy or Animal-based Protein Sensitivities

If you’re sensitive to dairy or other animal-based protein powders, then plant-based proteins are a fantastic option. Sensitivities often include digestive upset, skin rashes, and other unpleasant symptoms that are commonly reported when consuming animal-based protein powders that contain whey. If you are in this category, there are a variety of plant-based protein options to choose from, depending on your tastes and nutrient needs. You could go with a pea protein or hemp protein powder if you’re trying to keep it simple. Our Organic Super Shake in Vanilla, Chocolate or Berry are bountiful in nutritious benefits. They are hand-crafted with a blend of brown rice and pea proteins to provide a full amino acid profile along with a unique blend of superfoods, probiotics, and digestive enzymes for added support.

Can Help to Support Weight Loss Efforts

Ensuring adequate protein intake when you’re trying to lose weight is extremely important, especially if you plan to increase the intensity of your workouts. Plant-based proteins are overall lower in calories and fat than animal-based proteins. A well crafted plant-based protein powder will offer a full-spectrum amino profile and the nutrient density needed to help sustain and support weight loss efforts, while also helping your body to maintain lean muscle mass. Plant-based proteins tend to fair higher on the bio-availability scale, too – meaning their ingredients are more efficiently used by our bodies. You can get super creative with your smoothie mixes by creating delicious recipes that can help satisfy certain cravings. Give our Organic Super Shake Blueberry Pancake Smoothie a try and you’ll see exactly what we mean!

High in Fiber

Many of us simply don’t consume enough fiber. Ensuring an adequate intake of soluble and insoluble fiber from plant-based foods can prevent these issues if not eliminate them altogether when paired with a clean healthy diet. The fiber content in a well-crafted plant-based protein powder works synergistically with the protein and other healthful ingredients to help you feel satisfied/full, digest, and assimilate the nutrients your body needs. Healthful and efficient elimination (without discomfort) is another added benefit of upping your fiber intake.


Plant-based protein powders have the ability to help balance our bodies’ natural pH levels. This is one of our favorite benefits! Refined carbs, sugar, meat, and dairy can all throw our pH levels off balance, causing an uprise in acidity. When there is in excess of acidity in the body it can be difficult to ward off sickness and disease. An acidic body can also slow down our bodies’ ability to recover from injury or post-workout. Plant foods help to combat the excess acid we consume by creating a more balanced pH environment in our body. The Sunfood Supergreens & Protein Powder is formulated with alkalizing benefits in mind offering a full serving of daily greens including kale, chlorella, kelp, spinach, wheatgrass and a lot more delicious and nutritious stuff!


The environmental benefits of consuming plant-based proteins is a heartwarming bonus. Promoting and supporting a sustainable, healthy, and clean lifestyle is at the bedrock of what we do here at Sunfood Superfoods. Without clean air, clean water, and clean nutrient-rich soil, we can’t survive. Plant-based proteins are easier to manufacture than animal-based proteins and also require less land, water, and crop resources to produce. None of us are perfect, and we aren’t trying to push an agenda. However, it doesn’t hurt for us all to be mindful when it comes to the preservation of this beautiful and bountiful planet we all call home. Do what you can, where you can. Progress not perfection, right?

On that note, let’s all go make ourselves an Organic Super Shake Horchata Smoothie and eat some Vegan Black Seed Tacos.
