Half Human Plant Based Protein Blend

Build lean muscle and take your recovery to the next level with the Half Human plant-based protein powder. This is not your typical grainy, chalky tasting protein powder. Half Human has gone all-out to ensure the texture, taste and mix-ability are something that you have not experienced before. They have not stopped there though. Alongside the Pea and Brown Rice protein base, they have fortified this product with extra Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) and L-Glutamine to take your recovery to the next level and boost lean muscle tissue growth. What’s the best thing about this product? It uses natural colours and sweeteners and includes no soy, lactose or other nasty irritants! For years, vegan friendly protein shakes have had a bad name. Bad flavours, chalky texture and not mixing well. Half Human is changing the plant-based game. Their Vegan Protein has been designed with taste in mind. The flavour is unparalleled and the texture unrivalled. This has all been done using high-quality ingredients and natural sweeteners. They have fortified the Brown Rice and Pea protein sources with 5 grams of additional BCAAs and L-Glutamine to make sure you are getting the ideal mix to support lean muscle tissue growth and recovery. Each serving delivers 25g (0.8oz) of protein making it far easier to reach your protein goals, 8g (0.3oz) of gluten-free carbohydrates (only 0.6g/0.02oz sugar!) and 0.2g (0.007oz) of saturated fat.

Vegan

Just because you are vegan, doesn't mean you should miss out on the full range of health-boosting supplements.
In fact, as a vegan, you can really benefit from the addition of a well-formulated range of protein powders, multivitamins and energy enhancers.
Luckily, we offer a vegan-friendly format of all our main supplement types, from pre-workout formulas to fat burners and creatine powders.
Let's delve into what we have on offer, as well as which products can best suit your vegan needs.

 

 

WHAT IS A VEGAN DIET?

 

 

A vegan diet excludes anything originating from an animal including eggs, dairy, meat and as well as fish and honey.

 

 

WHAT SUPPLEMENTS SHOULD A VEGAN TAKE?

 

 

AMINO ACIDS

Supplementing amino acids can ensure you get the full range of both essential and non-essential AA’s which may be harder to obtain on an exclusively plant-based diet. These extra AA’s can help with muscle building and recovery post-high-intensity exercise.

CREATINE

Creatine is the number one supplement of choice for enhanced muscle hypertrophy (growth). It has been shown to reduce fatigue during exercise and supports muscle growth afterwards. It can be particularly useful for vegans who may be lacking in specific amino acids.

ENERGY AND ENDURANCE

Vegan or not, pre, intra and post-workout supplements help you to get the most out of your workout, with caffeine to get you going pre-workout, intra-carb intake to support glycogen stores and post-workout supplements to increase muscle recovery.

FAT BURNERS

Adopting a vegan diet can be a good way to support your weight loss goals, but sometimes we need a little bit of extra help. This is where fat burners come in, as they can support the body’s natural thermogenesis to increase your metabolic rate.

PROTEIN AND GAINERS

Vegans who are looking to gain muscle mass can really benefit from supplementary protein intake - ideally post-exercise, to support new muscle growth. Vegan protein powders are an easy and convenient way to up your levels.

VITAMINS AND MINERALS

Vegans can benefit from extra vitamin and mineral support to make up for any deficiencies, a good multivitamin can cover most bases, and additional B12, Iron, Calcium and Vit D can make a real difference to your general health.

 

 

FAQs

 

 

WHAT VITAMINS ARE VEGANS USUALLY LACKING?

Vegans should make sure they consume enough Vitamin D, Iron, Calcium, DHA and Vitamin B12, as these can be easy to miss with an exclusively plant-based diet, but supplementation can make it easier to get everything you need.

IS THERE A MULTIVITAMIN FOR VEGANS?

Yes, this is an easy way to ensure you are covering all your key nutrient needs in a vegan-friendly way. Just one tablet a day can keep you topped up in Vitamin D, Calcium, B-12 and more.

CAN VEGANS GET B12 NATURALLY?

Vegans cannot get B12 naturally unless they consume fortified foods as it is most commonly found in meat, fish and dairy products. B12 is essential for energy and nervous system health, and supplements are essential to prevent serious deficiencies.

CAN YOU BUILD MUSCLE WITH VEGAN PROTEIN POWDER?

Absolutely. The amino acids you get from good quality, mixed protein source powders, give you a wide range of building blocks to support your new muscle growth. Many successful athletes and bodybuilders use vegan protein powders to boost their muscle development.

HOW TO GET ALL ESSENTIAL AMINO ACIDS IN A VEGAN DIET?

In order to get the full range of essential amino acids, you should try to include a diverse range of plant-based proteins in your diet. This is because not all protein sources contain the full range of AA’s, so mixing and matching can help. You can also supplement with the specific AA’s commonly lacking in a vegan diet, such as lysine and tryptophan.

IS THERE VEGAN CREATINE?

Yes, the good news is that certain forms of powdered creatine are vegan friendly, these are usually in the form of creatine monohydrate, which happens to be the best form of creatine for exercise performance.

IS PLANT-BASED DIET HEALTHIER THAN MEAT?

It is possible to eat a healthy diet whether or not you eat meat. It all comes down to the type and quality of the food you eat, including how nutrient-dense it is. The benefit of a plant-based approach is that, when done well, it is usually high in fibres, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. However, it is important to ensure a vegan diet is balanced with a focus on micronutrient and amino acid intake.
