Hemp Protein

The Unique Benefits of Hemp Protein

One of the major requirements of our diets is protein, along with fats and carbohydrates. Protein is required because it supplies essential amino acids, which the body does not naturally produce yet still needs. Hemp is an ideal source of protein for humans and animals alike, based on its inherent makeup and unique properties.

What makes hemp protein so good? The most important thing is that it has all nine essential amino acids, and very few other sources are fully complete. Not only that, but hemp foods are packed with a lot of essential fatty acids; specifically, linoleic acid and linolenic acid. Also, those acids are present in the ideal ratios; three-to-one, respectively. With the perfect amounts of fatty acids and a complete amino acid profile, you can't beat hemp protein.

Hemp protein can be taken in large quantities for anyone who wants to gain muscle fast. Otherwise, everybody who is able to should take hemp protein in some form, as it is the greatest form of protein in the world.

How to Get Hemp Protein

Knowing the benefits of something does you no good if you cannot acquire the product. Thankfully, there are many sources of hemp protein, so you should have no problem finding it. The easiest way to get hemp protein is by purchasing hemp seeds or hemp seed oil in large quantities. Nutiva is a well known brand that carries the highest quality hemp products, and if you go with them, you will be adequately satisfied. As for how hemp seed is initially made, it is just one of the many ways to use industrial hemp.

There are also many hemp foods that you can pick up right in the store. For example, there are many hemp cereals, bars, and regular seeds that are routinely sold. Of course, there is much less hemp in these things than the pure stuff from Nutiva, but the quality of the seeds is relatively stable.

Although the benefits of hemp protein are enormous, the price of it is not that high. You can get three pounds of solid hemp protein for less than forty dollars from Nutiva, and that is a pretty great deal!

Prices of Hemp Protein

Hemp protein is very affordable and can take the place of any other protein supplement currently used.  It is more effective and a lot cheaper than many supplements out there, so by paying less, you get more!

The prices of hemp products are as follows:

  • $0.99 for 1.1oz of shelled hemp seeds
  • $9.99 for 8oz of shelled hemp seeds
  • $5.99 for 8oz of hemp seed oil
  • $9.99 for 13oz of hemp protein powder
  • $29.99 for 3lbs of hemp protein + fiber

Those are all prices from Nutiva, and prices from other sources may differ based on location.
