Hey guys, I’m Rob Riches, and on today’s video for SupplementsWorld.com, I’ll be taking a look at the many benefits of using hemp protein. For more information about hemp protein and many other ingredients, be sure to check out SupplementsWorld.com. Hemp protein comes from the sativa cannibis plant, and it’s considered one of the best plant-based protein sources. It contains at least twenty different amino acids, nine of which are essential. It’s also rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, including GLA, Gamma-linolenic Acid, which is often hard to obtain through a regular diet. It’s also high in fiber. Now, hemp protein has been studied extensively, and it offers many health benefits, without any of the psychoactive compounds THC, attributed to the plant of the same family. The benefits are plentiful. Just supplementing with hemp protein powder is a great way to increase your daily protein intake, prevent deficiency, and maintain the optimal functioning of your body.
By boosting your protein intake, you’ll also accelerate your metabolism, which in turn can help keep body fat levels in check. The high fiber content of hemp helps to keep you regular, by cleansing the colon, regulating blood sugar, and reduce cravings. Now hemp protein also contains the plant proteins Edestin and Albumin, both of which are responsible for the enzymatic functions in the blood plasma, along with antibody formation. Edestin is considered the most easily digestible protein in the plant kingdom, making it a great protein source for both your immune system and muscle-building. Now, the amount of protein you need can really depend on your size and your fitness goals.
A general rule of thumb is one gram of protein per pound of lean body weight. So a 25-gram scoop of hemp protein provides around 15 grams of protein, making it a potential significant source towards your daily nutrition goals. However, if you suffer with autoimmune conditions, I recommend consulting with your doctor before consuming hemp protein. This is due to the high levels of Gamma Globulin and antibodies contained within its structure. Whilst hemp protein is beneficial for the majority of us, the immune-boosting effects might be too strong for those with autoimmune conditions.
