Pea Protein is naturally high in iron.
Protein is essential in building strong bones, muscles, and healthy tissue. It also goes into a multitude of enzymes the body uses to produce energy, transport nutrients, carry oxygen, and complete thousands of other tasks.
Protein isn’t stored in the body like many other nutrients, so you need to consume a a good, healthy, and steady supply each day. You don’t need massive amounts, but you do need the right amino acids.

7. Less Processing Required
