Hemp protein powder is a big-hitting, plant-based source of protein that we just adore here at HERMOSA. So if you’re looking for a high-quality, gut-friendly source of protein that’s as kind to your heart as it is to the planet, look no further than hemp protein powder. Here, we take a deep dive into the main benefits of hemp protein powder and why you need it in your life!
What Is Hemp Protein Powder?
Hemp is way more dope than just, well, dope! The Cannabis Sativa plant boasts tons of health benefits beyond the psychoactive effects of THC, like energy and immune-boosting omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids, cholesterol-fighting phytosterols, and easily absorbed protein. Sounds good, right? But the good stuff doesn’t end there, because hemp is also allergen-free and packed with calcium, iron, zinc, magnesium, and vitamins B and D3.
HERMOSA Vegan Protein Powder contains 10% protein isolate powder extracted and separated from raw hemp seed. This sustainable crop source gives us an all-natural, high-quality protein that when paired with pea protein allows every scoop to contain all nine essential amino acids your body needs to refuel and repair. If you’re lactose intolerant, follow a vegan lifestyle, or just want a more environmentally-conscious hemp protein powder shake, hemp protein ticks all the right boxes.
How Much Protein is in Hemp Protein Powder?
A full scoop of pure hemp protein powder contains around 15g of complete protein in every scoop.
The HERMOSA Vegan Protein Powder combines 5g of hemp protein with 15g of easily digestible, GMO-free pea protein isolate, which takes HERMOSA vegan protein up to 20g per serving. That means it packs the same amount of protein as our whey protein powder. So you can get virtually all the same benefits of whey protein powder, just in a completely plant-based version. Not bad, huh?!
What does Hemp Protein Taste Like?
Pure, unadulterated hemp protein powder has a kind of nutty, earthy flavour to it. Some people love how hemp protein powder tastes. Others can’t stand it. But if you’re worried about how HERMOSA Vegan Protein Powder tastes, fear not! Unlike some other hemp-based protein powders, our smooth sipping vegan protein is sweetened with only the finest natural, plant-based stevia sweetener and comes in two flavour-packed varieties: vanilla or chocolate. Hemp has never tasted sweeter, amigos!
What Are The Benefits Of Hemp Protein Powder?
So is hemp protein powder good for you? What do you think?! Here are just three of the main hemp protein powder benefits you can expect to enjoy:
Efficient way to increase protein intake
Around a quarter of every hemp seed is made up of protein. So hemp is a great source of extra protein if you want to up your intake, especially if you’re practising a plant-based lifestyle or just want to eat less meat. Hemp protein can also help to build muscle and fire up your metabolism, with zero cholesterol or saturated fats in the mix.
Gut-friendly protein source
Hemp seeds contain 80% soluble fibre and 20% insoluble fibre. Soluble fibre slows down your digestion by creating a gel-like substance in your stomach while feeding your gut bacteria and binding to sugar and cholesterol to slow down their absorption into your bloodstream. Insoluble fibre also keeps you regular, flushing out harmful toxins.
Fights Heart Disease
Hemp protein powder made from hemp seeds is rich in omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, which are essential for maintaining heart health. Not only does hemp contain polyunsaturated fats that lower cholesterol and blood pressure, but it also contains tocopherol compounds that can prevent clogged arteries.
