Protein is essential for the body and mind to maintain optimal health and wellbeing.
There are over 10,000 proteins required to keep us functioning at our best health as human beings. Protein is best known for building and maintaining healthy muscles, repairing damaged tissues, maintaining strong bones, vibrant skin and hair, and enabling many hormone/enzyme functions in the body.
Hemp is a complete plant protein containing 20 amino acids (including the nine essentials our body requires us to obtain from our food). This fact makes hemp seeds the ideal protein choice for vegans, vegetarians, and anyone looking to reduce the meat content of their diet. Two of the main proteins in hemp are Edestin and Albumin; they are readily digestible and boost the immune system.
With a complete collection of amino acids boasting the highest digestibility of any vegetable protein and the bonus of essential fatty acids, minus the enzyme inhibitors found in soy that cause gas - hemp is genuinely the perfect plant-based protein.
Hemp is a "gentle" protein source and is tolerated well by people with sensitive stomachs. However, some proteins can be challenging to digest due to the presence of oligosaccharides. Hemp is free of oligosaccharides and is easy to assimilate.
