I’ll be taking a look at the many benefits of using hemp protein.
Hemp protein comes from the sativa cannibis plant, and it’s considered one of the best plant-based protein sources. It contains at least twenty different amino acids, nine of which are essential.
It’s also rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, including GLA, Gamma-linolenic Acid, which is often hard to obtain through a regular diet. It’s also high in fibre.
Now, hemp protein has been studied extensively, and it offers many health benefits, without any of the psychoactive compounds THC, attributed to the plant of the same family.
The benefits are plentiful. Just supplementing with hemp protein powder is a great way to increase your daily protein intake, prevent deficiency, and maintain the optimal functioning of your body.
By boosting your protein intake, you’ll also accelerate your metabolism, which in turn can help keep body fat levels in check. The high fibre content of hemp helps to keep you regular, by cleansing the colon, regulating blood sugar, and reduce cravings.
