Hemp protein powder is extracted from hemp seeds.
Hemp as a plant is one of those classical superfoods which, over the years, attracted true admiration from nutritional experts and individual consumers.
The hemp that we are discussing here is different from marijuana, it doesn't contain tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and doesn't produce psychoactive effects.
This wonderful plant is normally consumed as hemp seeds, hemp seed oil and now as hemp protein powder.
It offers an exceptional nutritional make-up (incl. a full spectrum of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and other important nutrients) and probably the most optimal balance of omega 6 and omega 3 essential fatty acids, as compared to other foods. (Ref. 1)
Our powder has a high percentage of protein - at least 50% of total contents.
Protein deficiency in some people may lead to tiredness and fatigue.
In that respect, hemp protein powder is an easily absorbed food and can help with a quick build-up of protein within the body.
It is interesting to note that hemp is a great source of gamma linoleic acid (GLA) which is rarely found in food. (Ref. 2)
GLA is a potent anti-inflammatory and metabolic agent and a brain-building compound which helps to detoxify the body. (Ref. 3) Another food that contains significant amounts of GLA is spirulina.
Hemp protein is even getting more popular with athletes who take it as a replacement for whey powder.
Hemp protein has a deep oily type of taste and can be mixed with other powders to mask the taste.
Try mixing it with lucuma powder - it is really delicious. It can also be added to yogurts, cereals and any other food.
Taking hemp protein powder alongside other superfoods will produce superior results.
