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 MUSCLETECH Nature's Food Organic Protein - Chocolate Cocoa:

This product is a great protein if your interested in a plant based protein. It consists of all natural ingredients and no proprietary blends. It is also great for anyone on a vegan diet. It mixes well and does not clump. I recommend mixing it with something until you get accustomed to the last, which isn't bad just different, being that it is solely plant based.

Comments about MUSCLETECH Nature's Food Organic Protein - Chocolate Cocoa:

It's tough to find a good tasting plant based, gluten free, soy free, vegan protein! This one is such a great one! I was able to make it into shakes and also used for baking! The only drawback is that you have to mix it very well and can't use a shaker.

    Nature's Food Organic Protein is a great high-quality alternative to soy, whey and milk-based proteins with out rice protein. Especially for people that are lactose intolerant and don't have as many protein choices.

      Comments about MUSCLETECH Nature's Food Organic Protein - Chocolate Cocoa:

      i usually buy whey but with all the stomach issues I have I was looking for an alternative. This was perfect for my morning shake. No bloating or cramping after. I make it with spinach and berries. I would definetely recommend for someone experiencing the same issues as me and looking for a more natural organic alternative!

          loved this product. i usually use why but its not easy on the stomach and im constantly dealing with bloating and gassiness. this protein is easy to digest without all the discomfort i normally get. I make it post workout and in the morning with fruits and veggies. i would definitely recommend for someone looking for a protein thats tasty with all the added benefits. Plus they dont skimp on protein like some other all natural products!

            I used this product as a replacement to my whey protein. mixes very easy and at a price that is will not break the bank (always a good perk). the taste can be a little different if you are not used to plant based protein however it has a good blend of everything you need and you can take it with some fruit and make it into a nice smoothie. all in all a good product to add to your daily supps

              I love how great this product tastes, and just like the vanilla flavor, it blends really well in a smoothie. I made a chocolate, peanut butter and banana smoothie, and it was very delicious and easy on the stomach. As previously mentioned, it's a great alternative to whey and a very versatile flavor. Excited to try more recipes with this product.

                  Iv been taking one scoop every morning for about 2 weeks now and it's been a great protein so far! I don't feel bloated after, it's definitely easy on the stomach. This tastes great both by itself and with oatmeal! It's hard to find a quality natural protein like this one now a days. If you're looking for a clean and quick source of protein then this is what you want to pick up right here! Not filling enough to be a meal replacement but it's definitely a supplement worth taking between meals!
