Plant-based food to support muscle mass

Can a plant-based protein help gain or maintain muscle mass? A vegan diet as a food trend is getting popularity for those seeking a healthy and balanced lifestyle. However the main concern is that plant proteins are known to have lower protein quality than animal proteins. So it potentially may be compromising exercise-induced gains in muscle mass through exercise. A Canadian research group investigated all potential advantages and limitations. As a result, plant proteins indeed have lower protein bioavailability and lower protein content per serving. But combining different food groups is one of the most effective ways of elevating the digestibility and may help to overcome such disadvantages. The most studied and efficient plant protein supplements are soy, beans, peas, rice, and potato. Check the details by the link.
