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.

      I have been using this Product for a couple of months and it has help me a lot. On those days of heavy lifts, or lots of cardio, it is exactly what you need. It will release and give you 8 hours of protein, and you will not feel wash out the next day. The other great Pro is that it has a GREAT PRICE.

              Comments about MuscleTech® PHASE8™ - Vanilla:

              I have tried many different proteins in my years of lifting and this is top best proteins ive ever tried. Function and Taste are both 10. The product itself has a perfect ingredient list of protein to continually feed your body what it needs. Its everything you would want in a protein. The taste of product is not usually something im big about, im more about function or the product, but in this case i must say that this is THE BEST tasting protein ive ever tried. It does take some effort to mix, but once mixed it is straight up delicious. Its like an explosion of perfection in your mouth. I promise you wont be disappointed. Ive used this successfully from post workout, to meal replacement, or my favorite..a pre bedtime shake(as it has casein). I would also like to thank muscletech for the free samples of this product as I am apart of their field testing team!

                As part of Muscletech's Field Test Team, I was given the opportunity to try this product. I have tried many proteins throughout my time working out and have to say I would easily rate this one in my top three. The taste is delicious as with many other proteins. However, I really love the thick consistency of Phase8. My favorite part about this product is just how filling it is. Often times I am in a rush and have to make a protein shake a meal or two a day. Typically I am hungry very fast afterwards which really is no fun. I found Phase8 to keep my full about as long as a regular meal does which makes a big difference.

                I will certainly be sticking to phase8 for all my protein needs as I am just in love with it.

                  Comments about MuscleTech® PHASE8™ - Vanilla:

                  After a trainer at my gym tried to sell me their brand of protein powder, I researched on my own for an alternative. I landed on this one from BB.com, and the reviews from not only there, but on the GNC site convinced me to try it.

                  I've tried the Choco Peanut Butter & Cookies and Cream. Both have great taste--my favorite being Peanut Butter. I use 10oz-12oz water only. When shaken well, it goes down smooth with no annoying chunks. Everyone says this, but it tastes too good to be true.

                  I take a small scoop in as soon as I wake up (about 3/4th scoop), and one immediately post-workout. My recovery time is usually cut in half, and fills my stomach for about two hours afterwards, until I can get home and prepare a meal.

                  If you don't lift, or don't workout heavily, it'll keep you full for a few hours. If you frequent the gym and require more calories, it'll satisfy you for a couple hours or less.

                  I do plan to buy it again. I've been using it for about a week, and am pretty satisfied with the results.

                    I received a sample from being a part of Sean's MuscleTech Field Tester.

                    Taste: 10/10
                    It doesn't have that strong white chocolate bar taste because it wasn't too sweet.
                    However, the taste was very smooth like a blend of vanilla almond milk and white chocolate!
                    The main reason why I gave this a 10 is because it is uncommon for a protein shake to taste amazing with oats! (Usually oats will make a protein shake too thick)

                    I have tried several recipes using Phase 8, and it has become very convenient as a staple protein source.

                        Vanilla was amazing. Tasted and smelled like similar cake batter proteins i've had. Mixed well in my blender ball. Was nice and thick with my normal amount of water. Also was able to try the Peanut Butter Chocolate and Cookies and Cream. All three were great, but the PBC didn't have a strong peanut butter taste.
