Hey everyone, first post!

Just wondering if I can get Vega products down here in Australia, if not which sites are best for shipping to Aus?

Thanks
Nic

Just joined!! First post.

I've been looking into Vega the past few days and I plan on giving it a try. I love how its plant-based and has so many great benefits. I plan on reading thru this thread and many others. Can't wait to give this a try.

I have been using the VEGA Complete powders in my smoothies for about a year now. I haven't tried the bars, the Performance Optimizer, the Recovery Accelerator, the oil, etc. What do you guys recommend? And, what flavors?

Okay,

Newbie Vegan Bodybuilder here. What is the difference between Vega Protein Powder & Vega SPORT Protein Powder. I know a large tub of Vega only has 15svgs in it and cost $75 at my local Whole Foods. A tub of Vega SPORT has 30svgs in it and cost $10 less.

Any help is appreciated,
Den

Vega sport is an actual protein powder.

the other Vega tub is a whole food meal replacement, recently renamed to a health optimizer. it's an ideal breakfast with almond hemp or soymilk. add a banana and make a smoothie with it, and you'll be full for hours..
it contains a full multivitamin, berry complex, serving of chlorella and maca, and is basically everything your body needs in a low calorie package.

the vega sport protein is the same amount protein but a different formula specifically for recovery, like any other protein powder.

I've been eating the Vega Health Optimizer for years every day as a breakfast. It fills you up instantly and even if you don't get around to eating lunch for a while longer than usual you won't feel bad. for $5 a serving it's awesome.

The Performance Optimizer is the only pre-work out supplement I've ever tried that I've felt actually gave me an edge when lifting. I have yet to try the recovery accelerator and haven't found a place around me that carries the bars to try them out, though.

Hemp isn't classified as a human-safe food in Australia, so you run the risk of customs swiping your goods on entry to the country... This has never happened to me thus far. I've had plenty of Vega samples arrive safely, and a few other miscellaneous hemp-containing foods. There is some pro-hemp lobbying going on at the moment, though. Google the petitions and sign 'em!

Vega is actually what helped me find this site. I was looking up ambassadors and found RC. I sent off an email telling him thanks for vegan and a bodybuilder, I did not think they could co-inside. RC found me on Facebook, and I have been a supporter ever since. I order from Vegan Proteins a lot, they are great people. I order 90%of my supplements from them.

Gotta admit, I'm kind of in love with these now...

http://vegasport.com/recover/performance-protein

The packets are a lifesaver when I'm in a hurry. AND... I've always had a problem with the price of Vega (even though I know they are very high quality ingredients... blah, blah, blah :D )

BUT.. having said that, I now find the price a tad justifiable for this product because...

1) I don't have to buy Glutamine anymore if I'm supplementing with these. Since 2 servings daily utilizes 10 grams of glutamine (which is what i aim for), I'm getting it all in one

2) The convenience of those little packages when I'm in a hurry is a lifesaver. I just keep several in my glove box so I can have it as my protein in a pinch.

3) Mixes SO SO easily with water.

4) They have improved the taste of Vega protein tremendously. Can't speak for the other varieties but the performance protein Berry flavor tastes really good; much better than I remember it tasting.

So I am going to be supplementing with this regularly now... Great product!!!!!!

I've heard about cyclists drinking/taking something every hour during a multi stage ride. Does vega make something like that?

This might be what you've heard about: http://vegasport.com/sustain/endurance-gel

I've never used the gel but I do use their Electrolyte Hydrator when I do extensive cycling or running.

I don't use Vega myself ( I don't need it ), but I see it everywhere these days. It looks like it is a big success.
