Organic Protein is a protein powder supplement made by MusclePharm.
It’s a plant-based protein powder, designed to help vegan athletes with muscular growth and recovery.
MusclePharm is an American supplement bran which was founded in 2008.
Pea protein is a very popular plant-based protein source for bodybuilders, due to its high BCAA content.
It’s one of the only non-animal protein sources which has an amino acid profile comparable to that of whey for bodybuilding needs (1).
Quinoa is another excellent plant-based source of protein which also contains healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals (2).
Coconut oil contains high amounts of medium chain triglycerides, more commonly known as MCTs.
These can reduce hunger levels and promote fat-loss (3).
Oat bran provides valuable fibre, which is useful in assisting the digestion of protein
Prebiotics and probiotics
Prebiotics and probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts which can have positive benefits on digestive health.
Digestive enzymes help with the breakdown of food, in this case milk sugars and proteins.

Athletes who have a plant-based diet, or simply would like to use a plant-based protein powder may enjoy using MusclePharm Organic Protein.

MusclePharm Organic Protein is yet another of many plant-based proteins entering the market.
Although it has a similar base to other formulas (pea protein), it also contains valuable extras beneficial to digestive health such as fibre, probiotics, prebiotics, and digestive enzymes.
It is a little higher in calories than some other formulas, but this mostly comes from healthy fats which are also beneficial to health.
