The powers of hemp powder

While hemp is closely related to Marijuana, being a distinct variety of the Cannabis sativa plant, it has only microscopic amounts of THC, thus eliminating its psychoactive effects. It has become a popular choice for athletes, as well as those who are on a gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan or raw food diet.
Hemp is nutritious, bursting with plant protein, vitamins, Omega-6 and Omega-3. Hempseeds are very versatile and can be used in many different forms (seeds, powder, liquid) and practically added to any meal - even baking.

BENEFITS

Hemp protein powder contains every essential amino acids, even the ones that the body cannot produce on its own. Both protein and fiber in hemp aid slow digestion, preventing blood sugar spikes, thus sustaining your body’s energy. Whereas soybeans are subjected to genetic modification, hemp is not.

By adding hemp to your daily meals, the contained protein and fiber will aid satiety. This makes you keep full longer and prevents snaking.

Hemp seeds have an ideal 3:1 balance of omega-3 fatty acids vs. omega-6 fatty acids and are one of the few plants that contain these. Overall, they can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, lower blood pressure and promote cardiovascular health.

The Omega-6 fatty acids also maintain bone health, whilst boosting your metabolism and immunisation system. Additionally, they are said to improve fatigue, prevent skin disorders and aid hair growth.
