(NaturalNews) Protein powder is a supplement that has been used by bodybuilders and people simply looking to stay in shape; it is used to maximize the effects of their workouts and to build the muscle that they need to burn excess calories and to maintain a steady weight. Many protein powder products are on the market, but they often contain substances that make them inconsistent with gluten-free and vegan diets. Brown rice protein powder is an alternative to traditional protein powder (which is usually made from whey, casein, egg, or soy) and is compatible with vegan and gluten-free diets.

Many individuals worry that brown rice protein powder cannot provide the levels of protein and amino acids needed to compete with other forms of protein powders, as 100 grams of raw brown rice contains less than 8 grams of protein and cannot make a complete protein chain due to its relatively low amount of amino acids; however, after taking a look at the natural process through which the brown rice is used to make the protein powder, many skeptics have become loyal to brown rice brands. Many of the companies that produce the brown rice protein powders that are on today's market are committed to keeping the process natural, meaning that they do not add chemicals or other substances to the product. Instead, they utilize enzymes, filtering, and fermentation to manipulate the protein and amino acid levels of the brown rice.

When the process begins, the protein and the carbohydrates of the brown rice are separated, allowing for higher levels of protein to be incorporated into the final product. Additionally, some have engineered the fermentation process to enhance the amount of amino acids in the mixture, allowing a full amino acid chain to be established. This is important, as this chain is crucial in the stimulation of protein synthesis and the reduction of protein catabolism.

After the process is complete, the brown rice protein powder is finished off with different flavors, such as chocolate or vanilla, and may or may not be incorporated with a sweetener. This helps to alleviate the chalky taste that the product is known for, but as it is normally used as a supplement in meals and beverages, this issue is not a problem for many people that use the product.

A natural protein enhancer, brown rice protein powder also contains other substances that increase the overall level of health of those that consume it, including fiber, complex carbohydrates, and B vitamins. Rice protein has also been indicated as an inhibitor of lesions caused by atherosclerosis, as well as a reducer of cholesterol and an enhancer of insulin sensitivity. These health benefits have not yet been confirmed in humans, but the research indicates a promising future for studies to come. Additionally, brown rice protein powder is non-allergenic and easy for most people to digest (as opposed to other protein sources that contain dairy, making them difficult for lactose intolerant individuals to process).

For anyone that is looking for a protein powder that fits with a natural lifestyle and provides results that compete with traditional whey and soy powders, brown rice protein powder is a great supplement to add to a diet. Due to its effectiveness and versatility, as it can be added to any number of meals or beverages, individuals that incorporate this product into their diets will be able to improve their muscle mass and to stabilize their weight thanks to the protein and amino acid levels that it offers.
