Did you know that hemp seeds are one of nature’s best sources for plant-based protein? If you’re looking to increase your protein intake from a natural and vegan source, then hemp protein powder just might be the perfect choice for you. Hemp protein powder is not only a protein powerhouse, but it’s also inherently loaded with more healthy omega fatty acids and fibre than many other common protein powders. Hemp protein is made by milling the seed of the plant Cannabis Sativa. Hemp has barely or even no measurable levels of the psychoactive compound tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the cannabinoid most known for its psychoactive properties. Its main benefits include to:
1. Helps to provide the correct amino acids in the right quantities to help our bodies make the protein it needs. It is similar to proteins found in the human body. It contains amino acids arginine and histidine required for growth, needed for repair and growth of lean body tissue.
2. Provides the essential fatty acids omega-3 and omega-6. This helps to reduce food cravings and inflammation.
3. Provides the required amount of dietary fibre. Two tablespoons of hemp protein powder delivers 8g of fibre, almost one-third of the total daily requirement of 30g.
4. Improve metabolism
5. Reduce cholesterol and blood pressure
How to use?
Mix around 2 tablespoons (30g) to a juice, smoothie or pure water.
