The Benefit of Hemp Protein
Hemp: The Powerful Protein
I’m sure this isn’t the first time you’ve heard this but proteins but proteins are the building blocks of life. Every cell in your body contains protein, and we need protein in our diet to keep our cells healthy – by repairing existing ones and making new ones.
For most adults, two to three protein-rich foods meet their daily needs but more often than not the question comes down to:
- How much protein do I need?
- What are the best sources of protein?
The recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for protein is 0.36 grams of protein per pound that you weigh. You can find online calculators that will help you determine the amount of protein you need every day, but the easiest way to do it is multiply your weight by 0.36. For example, if you weigh 175 pounds: 175 pounds x 0.36 grams of protein = 63 grams of protein needed in your diet every day to help maintain your healthy lifestyle.
But what are the best options for getting my daily protein intake?
As they are digested protein-rich foods get broken down into amino acids which are essential to maintain good health. While amino acids can be found in foods such as meats, milk, fish and eggs. The healthiest sources come from whole plant sources including soy, beans, legumes, and some grains like wheat germ and quinoa.
An amazing source of protein is hemp! It is a complete protein because it contains all eight essential amino acids in high enough quantities to meet your body’s needs. It’s the perfect source of protein for vegetarians and vegans. But it isn’t only just a great protein, it has many other nutritional benefits.
Hemp is easy to digest. Hemp is a globular protein, which means it’s easy to dissolve. That makes it easily accessible for the body to use. On the opposite end you have soy protein which contains inhibitors that blocks it’s ability to break down protein, which may cause bloating and gas.
- Hemp is high in essential fatty acids(Omega-3 and 6) and low in saturated fats.
- Hemp is sustainable and good for the earth. The hemp plant grows quickly and kills weeds due to its dense growing pattern. Therefore, it is unnecessary to use pesticides or herbicides when growing hemp.
- Hemp is rich in fiber. Fiber has been shown to lower your risk for heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, and can help alleviate constipation.
In addition, if you have lactose intolerance or are allergic to whey or nuts, hemp is a perfect alternative. So, when considering which types of protein are the best in your diet, take another look at hemp!
