A protein supplement designed to work with your body, not against it
Our hemp protein powder is a nourishing formula providing all nine essential amino acids that help your body work harder and recover faster from exercise while supporting a healthy immune system, hair, skin, and nails. Hemp protein is an excellent alternative for anyone wanting to try protein supplements without consuming animal products. How much hemp protein you’ll want to take will depend on your fitness goals and dietary requirements.
Our hemp seeds are grown in Canada under the Safe Food for Canadians Regulations, certified according to Canadian Organic Standards and processed in New Zealand.
Hemp is considered a superior protein source due to the fact it is a complete, sustainable protein source, including the nine essential amino acids that your body is unable to produce on its own and so we must obtain these from our diet. Amino acids are the building blocks for all protein in our bodies – vital for tissue growth and repair, the daily functioning of our bodies. Beyond muscle repair and recovery, hemp protein is known for its’ anti-fatigue properties, digestive support and role in maintaining a healthy immune system.
Hemp seeds also contain an optimal ratio of Omega 3, 6 and 9, plus GLA, a natural fatty acid which has been shown to reduce inflammation in the body. Hemp protein contains albumin and edestin – both classified as “globular proteins” which are highly digestible proteins meaning you get the maximum absorption of your protein intake, promoting muscle development. Hemp protein is also free of oligosaccharides which can cause bloating and are often associated with whey proteins.
Hemp protein is for you if:
- You’re an athlete with high protein requirements.
- You’re going to the gym, working out and wanting to increase muscle mass.
- You want to incorporate more plant-based proteins into your diet.
- You’re following a vegan diet and wanting to increase your overall protein intake.
