Vega Sport Performance Protein Review

As a Sweat Pink Ambassador of Fit Approach  I was offered the opportunity to review the Vega Sport Performance Protein Powder. I had heard nothing but positive things about this stuff so when I was offered the opportunity to test it out, I couldn't have been more excited about it!!

I have been looking for a good quality protein powder for quite some time now but haven't wanted to invest in expensive powder and end up not liking it. I also didn't know a whole heck-of-alot about proper protein fueling for my body either. I just wasn't able to find a good protein for me...until I tried this stuff. 

Not only does this powder taste amazing (seriously, it doesn't even compare to other protein powders) but it is also really good for you, made with plant-based protein!
A complete multi-source, alkaline-forming, plant-based protein powder blend, featuring 5,000mg of BCAAs and 5,000mg of glutamine per serving 
This powder in particular is purposed as a post workout recovery protein, made 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. Available in Vanilla, Chocolate and Berry flavors.

For optimal recovery, it can be paired with the Vega Sport Recovery Accelerator  for those who are training for competitive events and pushing their bodies to the limit.

I have created 4 signature wholesome smoothie combos to #FuelMyBetter after some brutal hill work. These smoothies get me over the hump in hunger cravings and aid in a quicker recovery, which gets these little legs back on the pavement much more often!
