Why is it good?
Hemp is well-known as an excellent source of nutrition and energy. Hemp protein contains all 10 essential amino acids necessary for optimal health, making it a complete protein, and it also has a good balance of essential fatty acids. It’s a remarkably good protein source with more than 3,5 grams of protein per tablespoon.
It's one of the plant kingdom’s best sources of easily digestible, high-quality proteins, that helps to build and repair tissue and build lean muscle mass. Unlike soy, hemp does not contain enzyme inhibitors and phytates, so the nutrients in hemp can be easily absorbed by the body.
Hemp is also super high in fibre that helps the body eliminate toxins and to stay full for longer periods of time. This plant powered protein also provides vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and chlorophyll.
