Bodybuilding Benefit: Brown Rice protein powder is a great source of vegetarian protein that has a similar amino acid profile as whey, and is rich in glutamine and arginine. Even if you are not looking for a vegetarian supplement, brown rice is great to mix with your whey or casein shake for a change of pace, or just to get a good mix of amino profiles in your diet.

When most people think of good bodybuilding protein supplements, they think of whey protein, casein, soy and maybe egg protein. Very few people think of brown rice protein. Believe it or not, brown rice protein powder is an excellent source of protein for the bodybuilder or strength athlete.
Brown rice is generally considered a carbohydrate source, but it does contain a small amount of protein. However, when brown rice is concentrated it can be made into a high protein powder supplement with an impressive amino acid profile.
Brown rice protein powder makes an excellent addition to your protein supplement arsenal. Because it has a different amino acid profile than whey, mixing a scoop or two with your whey protein shake assures you are getting a good balance of amino acids. Another interesting fact about brown rice protein is that it contains roughly 5 times the amount of arginine than whey, meaning you will get a nice nitric oxide boost when taking as your pre-workout shake.
