Olympian Labs Pea Protein is an organic, vegetable-based complete protein powder derived from yellow peas (Pisum sativum). Pea Protein is a great protein source that helps to build lean muscle mass, provides optimum nutrition, and it keeps your hunger more satisfied than other protein powders. Its balanced amino acid profile with BCAAs is great when you are working out a lot and challenging your muscles.
Most commercially available protein powders are derived from soy, rice, eggs, or dairy, which are often problematic for those with allergic dietary concerns. Weve chosen pea protein because it is a plant-based, hypoallergenic protein that is easily digested. OLs Lean & Healthy Pea Protein is great for athletes or just as a healthy, lower-calorie snack.
Our Pea Protein is concentrated from the normal level of 6% in fresh peas to more than 80% protein content! This unique process produces a protein powder that is highly soluble and easy to digest.

Our proprietary “Star-Rating” system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.
For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.
