Hemp powder is made of finely milled seeds that can be used in smoothies and shakes or as flour for baking. Adding 2 to 3 tablespoons (15 to 23 g) of powder will give you an additional 10 to 16 grams of high-quality, easy-to-digest protein.
Hemp powder are one of those nutrient-dense whole foods. An easy-to-digest protein, hemp powder are also rich in inflammation-fighting essential fats, which make it an optimal choice for athletes and non-athletes alike.
The incredible protein-packed hemp seed: Hemp seeds come from an industrialized, non-drug type of annual herbaceous plant (Cannibis sativa). They are an excellent source of easy-to-digest protein that include all nine essential amino acids in levels that are close to those of the complete proteins found in animal products and soy. They are also a significant source of arginine, a nonessential amino acid that appears to benefit the heart. Found in protein-rich foods, including plant foods like soy and nuts, arginine helps keep the blood vessels functioning optimally.
When it comes to the quantity of protein and other nutrients in hemp seeds, don’t let the size of this little seed fool you. 28 grams of shelled hemp seeds contains about 7 grams of easy-to-digest protein (slightly more than one large egg), 10 grams of heart-healthy fats, and nearly 8 grams of dietary fiber. Hemp is also a good source of vitamins like the antioxidant vitamin E and minerals like potassium, magnesium, and iron, to name a few. In fact, just 2 tablespoons (15 grams) of hemp powder meets more than a quarter of your daily iron needs.
Beautiful Balance of Omega-3 and Omega-6 Fatty Acids: Hemp seeds are high in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, and together these fats may help reduce the risk of diseases affected by inflammation, including heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis. They also have a protective effect on the brain and skin.
Omega-3 fatty acids are especially known for their potent inflammation fighting effects. But although omega-6 fatty acids – the ones found in some vegetable oils, nuts, and seeds – don’t tend to receive quite the same fanfare as the omega-3 fatty acids, they are still important to our health, especially our heart. Hemp seeds are an excellent source of linoleic acid, an omega-6 fatty acid that may help lower total and LDL (“bad”) cholesterol and triglyceride levels, maintain healthy blood pressure, and prevent the formation of clots associated with heart attack and stroke. Together, these fats help fight inflammation in the body and reduce the risk of certain chronic diseases.
