Rice (Oryza sativa) is a staple food for protein intake for a big part of the world’s population. In Rice crops, the highest percentage of protein is found in bran. Rice bran contains plant hypoallergenic protein of high biological and nutritional value, and is rich in all the essential amino acids, especially Lysine, Leucine, Valine, Threonine, which the human body can’t synthesize and must take in with its diet. The administration of Rice protein in combination with exercise increases muscle mass strengthening skeletal muscles and providing energy comparable to whey protein.
A dietary protein, the composition of which contains higher amounts of limiting and essential amino acids, is considered to be a protein with a more balanced amino acid profile. Pea (Pisum sativum) protein is one of them. This protein has high digestibility and nutritional value. In comparison to other plant proteins, it contains high amount of Leucine, Lysine, Phenylalanine etc. amino acids, that can’t be synthesized de novo by the human body and therefore humans must get them from their diet. Pea protein intake combined with exercise has been found to be effective in increasing and strengthening of muscle mass, while compared to animal whey protein, it is considered to be an effective alternative plant protein for athletes, people who start exercising to lose weight, and even elderly who they want to maintain their muscular mass. Moreover, this protein has been found to be effective in maintaining blood pressure against hypertension.
Spirulina is a cyanobacterium of high biological value, that is rich in proteins, vitamins and antioxidants. It has several health benefits based on its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory action. Moreover, Spirulina supplementation contributes to the prevention of skeletal muscles from oxidative stress caused by exercise, but it also induces a significant increase in exercise performance.
