Diet and nutrition have always been at the epicenter of the ever-changing wave of lifestyle trends. Over the years, more and more people find themselves gravitating towards a whole food and plant-based diet. The motive is simple, it caters to a wide variety of nutritional needs while maintaining a healthy body and a healthy planet.
The biggest dilemma that arises while making this healthy switch is reworking the balance of daily nutritional requirements, especially for essential nutrients such as protein. The right plant-based protein is what everyone looks for when beginning their foray into the world of plant-based nutrition. Here’s where HEMP SEED POWDER paves its way!
This rich powder makes adding wholesome food choices to your diet a fun and easy task. A powerful health blend that is super accessible and convenient, and can be added to your diet without completely altering your everyday habits and meal plans.
The way Hemp Seed Powder is created is just another testament to the versatility of hemp seeds. The seeds from the hemp plant are cold-pressed to extract its multi-beneficial oil, leaving behind fiber rich hemp seed meal. This hemp seed meal is further refined and milled to create what we know as Hemp Seed Powder.
The abundance of benefits
This versatile powder is a COMPLETE PROTEIN and a treat to your healthy living. It is one of nature’s most abundant nutritional resources that provides you with a blend that contains all of the 9 essential amino acids our body requires. The powder has the highest amount of Edestin (65%) that no other plant-based protein procures. Our enzymes, hormones, and antibodies are all made of this globular protein that supports strong immunity. Alongside, Albumin Protein (35%) present in this powder makes it the perfect supplement for your daily nutritional requirements.
In the age where our immunity holds the highest importance, hemp seed powder fortifies our immune system with the help of its mineral-rich content like zinc, iron, potassium, and calcium to help fight foreign bacteria. While magnesium acts as a neurotransmitter that reduces stress and anxiety and regulates brain functions. This powder is also rich in vitamin E & B-complex that further balances your body’s smooth functioning.
But that’s not it, the fibers present in it aids you to feel fuller for longer. Research has shown that this helps curb your frequent hunger cravings.
