Important Things To Know About Hemp Protein Powder

Foods that have an incredible array of health benefits that go well beyond just their nutrient value are considered 'super foods.' One of the oldest and yet seemingly most misunderstood super foods on the planet is hemp. Hemp is an incredible multi-purpose plant that can be used for anything from paper, rope, and cloth. It is also one of the most nutritionally well-balanced foods on the planet.

In A Nutshell Why Hemp Protein Is Amazing For You:

  • Complete protein source plant (sufficient quantities of all 9 essential amino acids)
  • Great source of sulfur - assists in cellular detoxification and production of vital enzymes
  • Rich in branched chain amino acids that are needed for muscle growth and repair
  • Hemp protein has a very similar structure to the protein found in the human body, making it very easily absorbed
  • Contains optimal ratio of omega fatty acids, making it a powerful source for anti-inflammatory diet
  • Contains significant quantities of omega-6 essential fat (GLA) which is only found in a handful of natural foods
  • Promotes healthy skin, hair and nails
