Did you know one cup of peas has more protein than an egg? Peas contain about 8 grams of protein per cup with only 1 gram of fat! Plus, they’re an excellent source of dietary fiber and vitamins. Studies show that isolated pea protein may have benefits for people suffering from chronic kidney disease and high blood pressure, and are a good source of protein for vegans, vegetarians and those with whey allergies. Pea protein is high in branched chain amino acids, which helps delay fatigue while exercising as well as arganine, an amino acid known to benefit immunity and fertility. That’s why The Doctors want you to give peas a chance with the Give Peas a Chance Protein Shake!
