Do not worry Hemp Protein Powder will not get you high! Despite being from the same Cannabis species as marijuana, hemp contains less than 1% THC so it can’t get you high. This misunderstood fact means nutritious hemp powder often gets overlooked. Hemp powder is a great source of plant-base protein and it’s very high in healthy fibre. Here we have 6 reasons why you should try the Pipkin Hemp Protein Powder.
1 – Increase your protein intake
Hemp powder is a great all natural high-protein source. We all know how important protein is for our body. It actually makes up vital organs, muscles, tissues and even some hormones. Proteins also develop, grow and maintain just about every part of you. If you’re vegetarian or vegan, Hemp Protein Powder is a great source of plant-based protein and it doesn’t contain any soy, dairy or nasty additives.
2 – Improves Heart Health
Hemp Protein Powder has high levels of amino acids, omega-3s, omega-6s and other essential nutrients to help promote heart health. In addition, it’s also a high-fibre food. It’s recommended to add hemp protein powder to a morning smoothie to naturally lower blood pressure, reduce LDL cholesterol, raise HDL cholesterol and improve triglycerides.
3 – Improves digestion health
Hemp protein powder is rich in soluble and insoluble fibre. The soluble fibre dissolves into a gel aiding in slowing down digestion and making you felling fuller for longer. The insoluble fibre in hemp seeds does not break down, and it will pass right through your system, which helps move things along, so to speak 😉.
4 – Decreases the risk of Osteoporosis
Hemp is naturally high in the essential omega-6 fatty acid gamma linolenic acid (GLA). Some studies suggest that people who do not get enough essential fatty acids — especially GLA and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) — are more likely to have bone loss than those with normal levels of these fatty acids.
5 – Reduces Sugar Cravings
The high nutrient content and dietary fibre makes the hemp protein powder a perfect ally in the fight against the craving for unhealthy sweets. You will be much less likely to experience energy crashes and aren’t as likely to crave sugar to fill the void.
6 – Boosts the Immune System
By consuming hemp protein powder, you will be giving your immune system a great boost! Hemp seeds contain the globular plant proteins edestin and albumin. These are responsible for enzymatic functions in the blood plasma such as antibody formation, making them critical for strong immune function.
