Hemp is a superior health supplement superfood as it contains all the protein and essential fatty acids needed for your dietary requirements in the one source.
Packed with omega fatty acids, protein, essential amino acids, dietary fibre, zinc and iron it is superb as a supplement for vegans and vegetarians and also great for sports enthusiasts.
Hemp is an excellent source of protein because it contains all the 21 known amino acids. This includes the 9 essential amino acids that the body can’t produce on its own and must take from dietary sources. Plus it's also free from gluten, dairy and lactose, sugar, GMO, additives and preservatives.
Hemp has not been subjected to genetic modification. Hemp farmers also say that its cultivation hardly requires pesticides, herbicides or petrochemical fertilizers. It happens to be one of those plants that lend easily to organic agricultural methods, which makes hemp a safer plant source of protein.
It’s not just the concentrated quantity that’s important. Hemp contains what are called branched-chain amino acids (BCAA). Specifically they are leucine, isoleucine, and valine. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization, BCAAs should make up 40% of the daily need for essential amino acids. That breaks down to about 40 milligrams of leucine and 10 -30 milligrams of isoleucine and valine per kilo of body weight.
What’s so significant about these amino acids? Along with carbohydrates, they are the fuel that muscles burn for energy. To serve this purpose, their metabolism is more direct and undergoes less processing by the liver, unlike other types of proteins.
It is estimated that up to 18% of energy expended in a workout comes from BCAAs. This can certainly go higher depending on the length and intensity of the exercise. The 40% daily need recommended by the FAO is based on people with regular lifestyles. The figures for daily demand and expenditure during hard physical activities will be higher for athletes.
Use of protein powder is a fairly common practice for athletes as it helps build muscle mass and strength. Choosing Hemp protein powder you are adding additional nutrients beyond protein. So Hemp is a very good choice and it’s a safe plant source.
