Being vegan is hard?
Most of non-vegan people think that being vegan is hard or even impossible. But that is very untrue. A vegan diet is a very common lifestyle now and certainly not as hard! And even with vegan supplements, there are so many options now to choose from. The perceived problem with a vegan diet is that it lacks quality protein sources. Beans and nuts, both protein staples for vegans, do not contain all nine essential amino acids. Rather, most are missing one or more of the needed muscle-building nutrients. Nevertheless, you should always count them in your daily protein intake (which should be between 0.6 and 0.8 grams per pound of body weight each day) if you’re trying to gain muscle. Numerous studies have shown that when coupled with training, diets based on plant proteins can yield the same results in both muscle growth and fat loss as their animal counterparts.
To help you out with the protein sources, we supply some of the best quality vegan proteins. Here at Nutrition First, we pride ourselves with supplying top European quality supplements, including some vegan supplements. We offer some great vegan protein powders, BCAAs, EAAs, and much more!
Most of our vegan customers do care about the taste, as many vegan supplements are missing this feature. Not all vegan and plant-based supplements need to taste horrible. The vegan supplements we offer, we use them ourselves, because they are such good quality. We are going to break some of the vegan supplements we offer, down.
Vegan supplements – protein powders
We are not afraid to say, this is the best vegan protein powder out there. It is the Raw Sport Elite Repair Protein powder. It is a cutting edge product that incorporates the key scientific aspects of optimal recovery in one product. Raw Sport Plant Protein is an informed sport certified ideal for those who wish to improve athletic performance, maintain muscle or simply increase nutritional intake with the added bonus of it tasting great.

Raw Sport Energy Protein is a protein with an energy twist. This protein powder – Vitality – is a healthy supplement to enjoy at any point in the day when energy levels are feeling low.

It all contributes to the growth and recovery of muscles. The main sources are Pumpkin, Peas and Rice. Per serving there is only 3.1g of carbs and 20g of Protein.

Vegan supplements – Amino Acids
Next, another quite essential bodybuilding supplement to make your muscles grow and to help with recovery, are amino acids. We offer a wide range of vegan amino acids from different brands. Few of them are from a very well-known German brand – Sinob.
The Juic3d EAAs are no more and no less than the concentrated charge of essential amino acids that everyone who’s serious about sports and muscle building wants.
These 8 amino acids also include the already known BCAA. However, Sinob goes one step further and want to cover the entire spectrum of important amino acids. Since essential amino acids cannot be formed independently by the body, it is particularly important to supply them separately. Either in the form of normal food or just Juic3d EAA.
Juic3d EAAs have been produced in optimal proportions and, with a reasonable dosage of just 9g, provide optimal support for the natural diet.
Sinob Juic3d BCAA contains only purest vegan instant BCAAs. They are branched-chain amino acids, which include leucine, isoleucine, and valine. In the Juic3d BCAA, the vegan BCAAs are present in a ratio of 2: 1: 1 (leucine: isoleucine: valine). They are three of the 8 essential amino acids. These have to be made available to the body with food or through supplements since the body is not able to form them itself. Juic3d BCAA was also fortified with tyrosine and vitamin B6. Juic3d not only has very cool values, it tastes great too!
Sinob Juic3d Cocktail BCAA: perfect for the summer! Finally, you can sip on a cocktail without feeling guilty! Blackline 2.0 have combined the proven 2: 1: 1 BCAA ratio with an extremely delicious taste. BCAAs are also 100% vegan and made in Germany! Using natural ingredients to boost the flavours!
