This is a game changer for a strict vegan regime. This product provides a complete range of aminos including hydroxyproline, which is typically lacking in all vegan regimes and essential for healthy connective tissues.

Why would you not take Vegan Essential Aminos? These amino acids are exactly the same, they are just made more ethically with more transparency and they are cleaner.
Initially, we saw a problem in the types of protein, amino acid requirement and the amino acids available for those choosing to live a vegan lifestyle. This is especially true in those that also train hard and are eating for sporting performance or for body goals.
Whilst trying to find a solution to the problem within the vegan community, we discovered that the existing amino acid industry may have its own problems that the vegans can fix. The learning experience went both ways and the final product was inspired by vegan requirements, the vegan code of ethics and environmental ideals, but the end result is something we can all use and benefit from. The amino acids themselves are exactly the same.
It is just the starting material and other steps that vary between the vegan aminos and non-vegan aminos.
Deficiency of Hydroxyproline in Vegan diet
Hydroxyproline is used to make collagen in our bodies. Plants do not contain collagen and hydroxyproline is almost totally absent in a plant-based vegan diet. Hydroxyproline can be made from Proline and Vitamin C making it technically not essential; but there is a relatively low intake of proline in most vegan diets. There simply just aren’t adequate doses of Proline and Hydroxyproline available in plants and those that do contain it have such a low yield you would have to be eating it by the truckload.
If you do not have adequate Hydroxyproline you cannot support and maintain collagen. If you are training, aging, or on a campaign to be better then you need adequate collagen to support your nutritional needs.
So, there can be a massive deficit in the hydroxyproline availability in the plant-based protein group. This increased demand for hydroxyproline will also deplete proline and vitamin C stores leaving them deficient for other functions.
