Are you a vegan and/or are you trying to find a way to increase your protein intake? The perfect solution is nature’s best source of plant-based protein made of hemp seeds. Besides, hemp protein powder is so easy to mix with your morning smoothies or the juice of your choice.
Indeed, hemp protein powder is possibly the best vegan protein powder as it contains 20 amino acids, including the nine essential amino acids that your body cannot produce on its own but it has to get it from food. It is also loaded with the healthy omega fatty acids and fibre in higher quantities than other protein powders on the market.
In a nutshell, there is a multitude of health benefits that hemp protein powder can bring to you. For examples, research shows that hemp powder supports the immune system and reduces fatigue. To understand the reality of the other benefits, we need to have a closer look at the biochemical structure of this incredible plant.
Important Info about Hemp Plant
Hemp belongs to the Cannabis plant family, but it’s grown for a) seed production b) the fibres in the stalk. Hemp does not contain a measurable level of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) – which is the psychoactive element known for inducing experiences of expanded consciousness.
Besides, THC has been thoroughly tested in scientific experiments and the results show that it has considerable health benefits – if it isn’t smoked. There is only about 0.3 – to 1.5 percent THC found in hemp, while marijuana contains from 5 up to 10 percent THC (or even more). Eating hemp is completely safe, healthy and legal. (While smoking marijuana has many detrimental health effects, especially for teenagers whose brain is still developing!)
Hemp seeds contain 20 amino acids – including the nine essential amino acids: methionine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, histidine, threonine, valine and tryptophan. Amino acids are building blocks for proteins – that makes 20 percent of our body. Proteins play a key role in almost all biological processes in human body. Also, a large percentage of our cells, tissues and muscles are made of amino acids. They also provide the transport and storage of nutrients and are essential for healing wounds and repairing tissues.
Why Is It Great For You To Use Hemp Protein Powder?
Hemp protein powder is made from the hemp seeds. It tastes neutral with a slightly nutty flavour. It is a great food supplement with multiple health benefits. We just talked about the importance of amino acids for the human body. Here’s a quotation from a scientific article by Jones and Erdmann that was written and published 30 years ago. Since that time the need for taking food supplements has increased significantly as our approach towards natural resources hasn’t changed or got worse:
Unfortunately, in the real world, countless factors are working to prevent our bodies from receiving a full and balanced supply of these all-important substances. Among these factors are the pollution caused by burning fossil fuels, the hormones fed to cattle, the intensive use of fertilizers in agriculture, and even habits such as smoking and drinking, all of which can prevent our bodies from fully using what we eat. Worse still is the amount of nutrition that is lost from our food through processing before we actually get to eat it…By providing the body with optimal nutrition, amino acids help to replace what is lost and, in doing so, promote well-being and vitality.
(Erdmann, R. & Jones, M., (1987) The Amino Revolution, First Fireside Edition, p2.)
Hemp protein powder also provides essential fatty acids omega-3 and omega-6 (3:1), plus GLA (gamma linolenic acid). All GLA-rich foods are very beneficial for health, especially for the following conditions:
- Heart disease
- Skin Allergies
- High blood pressure
