Recently, hemp’s reputation for nutrition and wellness has seen a terrific rise as its countless health benefits are being felt throughout the world.
Our Hemp Seed Nutrition Powder is a simple, versatile and effective way to strengthen your immune system and bolster daily nutrient intake. It boasts a complete spectrum of essential nutrients required by the body, including proteins; vitamins; minerals; all essential amino acids; and dietary fibre!
Health experts widely recommend hemp seeds as a rich source of gluten-free protein packed with crucial micronutrients like Potassium, Magnesium, Calcium, Iron, Zinc, Vitamin D and Vitamin E. What’s more, these seeds are a versatile superfood that have been shown to minimize risk of arthritis, diabetes, heart disease; regulate cholesterol levels; reduce skin problems; and even prevent hair fall!
Hemp seeds are a storehouse of the globular proteins - Albumin and Edestin. Why are these important? Albumin and Edestin are constituents of the fluid that make up blood plasma and are essential for a healthy immune system. On top of that, hemp seeds are the only-naturally occurring source of the Edestin protein, which is also a major component for DNA repair. Apart from growing and maintaining muscles, tissues and vital organs; protein also assists in boosting fat-metabolism!
Hemp seeds are one of the best plant-based protein sources and are reservoirs of all 9 essential amino acids, including all BCAAs - ‘the building blocks of protein’. Research has shown BCAAs to stimulate muscle growth and speed up post-workout recovery.
With an ideal 3:1 balance of the vital fatty acids Omega-6 (linolenic acid) and Omega-3 (alpha-linolenic acid), hemp seeds are an arguably better source for these than fish oil!
Consuming a lower ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 can help correct the imbalance (15:1) of these acids caused by a typical diet which, in turn, can help prevent many chronic diseases including cancer and heart disease.
Moreover, hemp seeds are one of the only sources of the rare Gamma-Linolenic acid (GLA), a type of Omega-6 that balances hormones, reducing symptoms of PMS; and is even scientifically proven to be an anti-cancer compound.
Hemp seeds also contain high measures of arginine - an amino acid that produces nitric oxide. Nitric oxide signals the veins to unwind and relax, normalizing blood pressure and lessening the danger of coronary illness.
Further, the rich fibre content found in hemp seed naturally purifies the colon by decreasing constipation and expelling toxins from the body. Fibre also keeps blood glucose levels in check which helps to bolster energy levels and prevent sugar cravings.
Whether you’re looking to build your immunity; shed a few kilos; gain lean muscle; prevent diseases; or simply practice a healthy and sustainable lifestyle, our vegan superfood powder is the perfect addition to your diet.
