Health Notes

Rice Protein

Rice Protein
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Atherosclerosis
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Though not yet proven in clinical research, animal studies suggest that rice protein-based diets result in less buildup of atherosclerotic plaque compared with animal protein-based diets. (more)
Athletic Performance
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Some athletes believe rice protein may also improve blood flow to muscle to enhance growth and repair. However, no research has investigated the effects of rice protein on athletic performance. (more)
Obesity
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Dieters who are gluten or dairy sensitive and looking to supplement protein might consider rice protein, though its actual benefits for weight loss have not been studied.(more)
Atherosclerosis
Dose: Refer to label instructionsAnimal studies suggest that rice protein-based diets result in less buildup of atherosclerotic plaque compared with animal protein-based diets.1 This effect may be due to mechanisms involving antioxidant function,2 cholesterol metabolism,3 or insulin function.4 Controlled human studies are needed to determine whether consuming rice protein can prevent or treat atherosclerotic disease.

Athletic Performance
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Compared with other protein supplements, rice protein has more of the amino acid arginine, and since arginine is a vasodilator that can enhance blood flow to tissues, some athletes believe rice protein may also improve blood flow to muscle to enhance growth and repair. However, no research has investigated the effects of rice protein on athletic performance.

Obesity
Dose: Refer to label instructionsDieters who are gluten or dairy sensitive and looking to supplement protein might consider rice protein, though its actual benefits for weight loss have not been studied.

Rice protein is extracted from rice and used in some protein supplements. Vegetarians may prefer it over protein supplements made from animal sources (such as whey or casein, which are milk proteins). Since rice is rarely involved in food allergies,1 rice protein may also be preferred by people with food allergies, and may be suitable to use in hypoallergenic infant formulas.2 Rice protein is not a complete protein, however, due to insufficient levels of the amino acids lysine and threonine.3, 4 Therefore, these amino acids are often added to rice protein products to correct this imbalance.

    Comments about GNC PRO PERFORMANCE GNC PUREDGE™ Complete Protein - Natural Chocolate:

    I use a protein shake as a meal supplement--mid-morning and mid-afternoon to complement my nutritional habits. Puredge mixes easily in my blender with ice and water. The chocolate flavor is not offensive; however, I feel that the Stevia produces an artifical overly-sweet (diet sweet) taste that I do not particularly like. I am hoping that after a few days I will be more comfortable with the taste, though, because overall I do like this product.

    Comments about GNC PRO PERFORMANCE GNC PUREDGE™ Complete Protein - Natural Chocolate:

    I like this protein because it's on the lower end in carbs and sugar. The downside is a super raw tasting chocolate that is quite bitter. I now mix with unsweetened almond milk which makes it creamy and very filling.

    Comments about GNC PRO PERFORMANCE GNC PUREDGE™ Complete Protein - Natural Chocolate:

    The product is pretty smooth and easy to mix. It did get clumpy at times and seemed to settle more than any other product I've used. Therefore a lot of wasted plastic in a pure product.
    Regardless I could see this working if used consistently

      Puredge Protein combines the taste of delicious milk chocolate with one complete serving of fruits and vegetables. I recommend this protein because it's whole-food based without compromising the flavor. In addition, the amino acids are perfect for a post-recovery drink.

        Comments about GNC PRO PERFORMANCE GNC PUREDGE™ Complete Protein - Natural Chocolate:

        I have tried a container of this protein and was pleasantly surprised with the taste and ingredient list. I particularly like the additions of Zn, Mg, Choline and Betaine to the protein matrix. As other reviewers have stated, I don't think it works on it's own as a pre-/post-workout protein shake (for MY needs, at least). But I was mixing it in with my Wheybolic Extreme for post-workout and drinking it on it's own prior to bed and on non-workout days. Unfortunately I prefer Muscle Milk as I am a creature of habbit. However, I may get a jug every once in a while to periodically mix in some new protein sources in my diet.

        Easily the most unique tasting protein that I've ever sampled. A very natural, nearly raw chocolate flavored with natural fruits. As for gym performance - It worked very well, but didn't give me the effectiveness that other GNC products have. Recommended, but not the best I've ever tried.

          • Extra Protein

          Comments about GNC PRO PERFORMANCE GNC PUREDGE™ Complete Protein - Natural Chocolate:

          After a protein powder that I had been using was no longer carried by a local store, I decided to set out to try and find one that did not contain a bunch of extra ingredients such as NutraSweets that, due to food allergies, I needed to stay away from! Since it was new when I purchased it, they sales clerk said they none had come back but that the reviews were still out. I decided to give it a try and thought that since it was labeled "natural chocolate" that it wouldn't taste good. Boy was I wrong! It is a great extra added bonus at night for a snack with one (1) scoop to help get in my protein for the day or as a meal replacement as two (2) scoops! Love this product!

            This makes a great after workout protein drink. Mixes well with milk, although the sugar doesn't dissolve 100%, still not too bad. Taste great, no bad after taste and seems to do the job.

              I would say that is was very easy to mix. I did not have any problems digesting it. Having a protein made of natural ingredients is very beneficial when thinking about your health. This products hits on that and allows me to focus 100% on my diet and workout and not on worrying on what I am drinking.
