Why Hemp Protein?

At the store, we often have people come in looking to supplement their diet with a protein powder. What many don't realize is that not all protein products are created equal. What I always recommend is organic hemp protein.

Hemp protein:

  • is a pure, raw source of complete protein
  • is very easy to digest
  • is a source of omega 3 & omega 6 essential fatty acids
  • supports your immune system
  • can easily be added to cereals, smoothies, and many, many recipes.

“Of the protein fraction of the total hempseed, 65%+ consists of globular edestin—this is the highest concentration found in nature. Edestin is considered by many scientists and researchers to be the most edible and easily digestible form of protein in the food chain.”*

Edestin is a plant globulin. Globulins are used by the body to manufacture hormones, antibodies, hemoglobin, and enzymes.

“Hempseed, unlike commonly available animal protein, is a pure, raw source of complete protein. It never needs to be cooked to kill bacteria, so all its vital components remain intact.”*

The other 35% of hemp protein is made up of albumin. Edestin and albumin are the super transporters of your body, carrying nutrients and antibodies throughout your body. “Eating hempseeds will ensure the immune system has the reservoir of globulin resources necessary to transport raw materials and support the immune system and immune response.”*

“Hempseed also contains the super anti-inflammatory essential fatty acid known as gamma linolenic acid (GLA).”*

Besides the multiple nutritional benefits, hemp is also a much more eco-friendly crop than many other protein products. Visit the Canadian Hemp Trade Alliance for more information.

At Quidditas, we are pleased to offer you Living Harvest hemp protein powder, and Vega, a delicious, nutrient plant-based meal replacement product that is high in hemp protein.

Be well!
