Hemp Protein Powder

Did you know that hemp is one of plant kingdom's best sources of easily digestible proteins?

Most protein powders contain whey, which is typically extracted from low quality milk. Hemp protein will never leave you feeling bloated, sluggish or heavy.  Your body is much more efficient at digesting seeds and plants, than dairy or meat. It is high-fibre protein supplement that can be used to enhance total protein intake for vegans and non-vegans alike. Hemp can be considered a superior protein source due to its above-average digestibility. The better a protein is digested, the more efficiently it can be used by the body which also makes it ideal for athletes.

Hemp protein contains 10% fatty acids by weight, maintaining the right balance between Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids and high proportions of polyunsaturated acids. It’s not only rich in proteins and fats. It's loaded with essential minerals and fibre that our bodies need for proper functioning. Hemp powder is also high in magnesium, which helps relax muscles. Additional benefits of hemp protein include potential immune enhancing and anti-fatigue properties, as well as kidney-protective effects.
