Hemp protein powder is the cleanest and most effective way to boost your protein intake. Whether you are looking for maximum athletic performance, reduced cravings, or balanced energy levels, hemp powder delivers a pure, absorbable and complete protein.
Edible hemp products are made from the seed of the hemp plant. Although this plant is related to the plants that produce marijuana, edible hemp has no psychoactive properties. The only way that it will alter your mind and your body is by nourishing it with good wholesome nutrients.
If you are craving meat and dairy during your detox or as part of a vegan lifestyle, adding hemp protein powder will help to reduce cravings. This plant-based nutrition will guarantee your body has enough wholesome protein to provide energy, build muscles and balance your hormones.
The Problem with other Protein Powders
Most mainstream protein powders on the market use whey protein or soy protein isolates. These protein sources are highly processed, unnatural, and cause intestinal toxemia (a build up of waste product in the intestines). Whey protein is a by-product of cheese making – it’s the leftover when milk coagulates at high heat. This kills the enzymes that are necessary to digest milk proteins and produces a highly unnatural, denatured product. It has no good bacteria and is essentially a dead food.
Soy protein isolate is similarly denatured and is often processed using hexane, a petroleum solvent. It is defatted, isolated and highly refined using heat, centrifuge, and chemicals. This again creates a highly denatured product that is very acidifying to the body and causes toxic buildup. Soy in itself is already the second most allergenic food to humans, second only to peanuts. Its highly refined forms have been so overused that many people simply cannot digest or properly absorb soy protein.
Finally, most protein powder products are also made with a concoction of artificial flavors, sugars and unnatural fillers. So instead of boosting your body with protein, these products provide superficial energy highs that bottom out, leaving the body more depleted and more toxic.
Superior Protein from Hemp
Hemp protein is a nutrition powerhouse. Hemp contains all of the essential amino acids and essential fatty acids to maintain human life. It provides the most complete source of protein available from any plant source, and in a form that is highly absorbable and usable by the body. It has a perfect blend of Omega-3 and other essential fatty acids that is superior to even flax and chia seeds.3
According to David Wolfe, the highly absorbable plant protein found in hemp products comes from sulphur-bearing amino acids. These amino acids are known to create strong flexible muscles and support the development of healthy neurotransmitters. They improve memory and strengthen brain cells.
Hemp is an excellent source of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). GLA is one of the hardest essential fatty acids to acquire because there are only a few sources, like evening primrose oil and borage oil. GLA is crucial for hormone balancing.
Hemp protein powder cleanses the intestines and alkalizes the body with its high fiber and amino acid content. Hemp is also an adequate source of calcium and iron and a good source of phosphorus, magnesium, zinc, copper and manganese.
Use Ergogenics Plant Protein in green smoothies, fruit smoothies, chia porridge, energy bars, or sprinkled over salads. When you purchase hemp, be sure to select an organically grown, non-GMO hemp product. The ingredients should be 100% raw hemp protein powder with no added fillers, chemicals, gluten, flavors or sugars.
