The development of elénzia PROTEIN™, a plant-based protein peptide supplement, is grounded in a thorough examination of clinical research data. Drawing from a wealth of scientific studies, the formulation process integrates cutting-edge research findings to optimise the blend of plant-derived peptides, ensuring efficacy and bioactive properties.

Protein Composition

Proteins are the building blocks of your bodily tissues including muscle, skin and hair. Having an adequate intake for your personal needs is vital to maintain optimum health. Proteins are composed of amino acids and 9 of these cannot be made by our body.

Vegan protein sources tend to be ‘incomplete’ and lack at least 1 of these essential amino acids. So, a beneficial combination of vegan proteins is required to provide a complete source of all essential amino acids.

elénzia PROTEIN™ beneficially combines pea and rice proteins to provide a complimentary amino acid profile covering all the essential amino acids for optimum health and function.

Therefore, this product is a complete vegan protein source (Hertzler et al., 2020).

Pea protein, in particular, is an excellent vegan source of Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA’s). These three essential amino acids – leucine, isoleucine, and valine – are vital for Muscle Protein Synthesis. An insufficient BCAA intake would impact recovery time and muscle mass maintenance, even leading to muscle wastage. A meta-analysis of 8 studies that considered the effect of BCAA supplementation on post-exercise muscle soreness found a large and significant reduction in soreness compared to a placebo (Fedewa et al., 2019).


Plant-based protein sources are notorious for their lower digestibility. Intact cell walls shield the intracellular proteins from digestive enzymes, preventing efficient digestion, absorption, and total availability to the body. (Roelofs et al., 2024)

However, pea and rice proteins are not simply isolated from the other cellular components, they are pre-digested or hydrolysed. As the initial breakdown of the protein is already complete, its digestion and absorption rate are improved, providing high bioavailability (Koopman et al., 2009).

Weight management

Maintaining a high-protein diet is vital for those seeking sustainable weight loss. Adequate protein intake prevents lean muscle mass loss during periods of restricted calorie intake (Moon & Koh, 2020).

Evans et al. (2012) carried out a randomised clinical trial over 12 months where 130 overweight individuals either consumed a high protein diet or simply a calorie restriction diet. Incredibly, individuals whose diet had a relatively high ratio of protein (the high protein group) lost 53% more weight than those who restricted calorie intake.


By increasing levels of GLP-1 and leptin in the body and inhibiting the hunger hormone ‘Ghrelin’, increasing protein intake helps us feel satisfied for longer and reduces the incidence of snacking. (Moon & Koh, 2020).

Weigle et al., (2005) Carried out a weight loss study on overweight women and found that those consuming a diet with protein accounting for 30% of calories instead of only 15% consumed an average of 441 calories less per day. So, consuming more protein as part of our meals is more satiating and can help the natural reduction in calorie intake throughout the day.

Interestingly, a study by Diepvens et al., (2007) found that pea protein hydrolysates were more effective at suppressing hunger than whey protein. Therefore, elénzia PROTEIN™ may have a greater impact on satiety and daily calorie consumption, highlighting its potential as a weight management product.

The convenience and concentrated dose of elénzia PROTEIN™ can help individuals trying to increase their daily protein intake and reap the benefits.

Vitamins & Minerals
