Alongside its quality protein, hemp provides very low net carbs, lots of fiber, and a small amount of healthy fats. It is a great alternative for vegetarians and for those who would like to avoid soy due to allergies or digestive difficulties.* It can be mixed with juice or water like regular proteins, mixed into food, or even eaten directly—it has a natural, nutty taste.
Hemp can be used for all kinds of things—clothing, plastic, and fuel—but for our purposes, it can help you build muscle.* Hemp protein first appears to have more carbohydrates than other proteins, but a closer look reveals that nearly all the carbs are insoluble fiber. A single serving can provide 50% of your daily fiber needs! Fiber may help stabilize blood sugar levels already in healthy range and keep you regular.*
For the health-conscious, hemp has certain advantages over other proteins. It already tastes good, and most products don't need any artificial sweeteners or chemicals to make it palatable. It contains sufficient amounts of vitamin E and iron. Hemp protein is also organic, grown naturally, and doesn't require any chemicals or pesticides for its production. Why not let your protein be as influential on your health as it is for your muscles?
