If you have a healthy balanced diet and seek to build muscle strength, you can take up to 1 gram of pea protein powder per pound of body weight a day. However, 0.75 grams per pound should be sufficient for a rigorous training program. For best results, however, we recommend mixing equal parts of pea and rice protein to ensure a well-balanced amino acid profile.
For weight loss, protein shakes can be used to replace up to 2 meals a day. If you are using protein to replace more than one meal you should also supplement with additional fiber and a good multivitamin.
Long-term excessive use of more than 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight is not advisable, as it has been associated with increased health risks.
