Hemp protein powder – for a powerful boost of energy when you need it!
Posted on January 29 2014
Whether it be for the summer beach body or the post Christmas guilt diet, we all at some point optimistically embark upon a new, healthier lifestyle that seeks to combine an improved diet and exercise. After all we all to feel and look the best we can.
Unfortunately the cold weather makes it all too tempting to stay snuggled up indoors, whilst juggling the conflicting demands of a busy career and family responsibilities often leaves us feeling tired and worn out.
So how to summon up the extra energy necessary for that workout at the gym or even a light 10 minute jog around the block. Happily there are natural, wholesome supplements such as organic hemp protein powder, that can give you just the kick-start you need!
Organic hemp protein powder under the spotlight
Don’t worry, despite its rather narcotic sounding name, organic hemp protein powder is actually a harmless superfood product from hemp, which in addition to a wide range of organic foods and cosmetics, is used to manufacture rope and paper (in fact, some of the world’s most famous historical works are written on hemp paper). It therefore contains only a tiny amount of THC, the psychoactive ingredient found in marijuana.
The hemp plant is thought to have originated in Central Asia, where it has been harnessed for a variety of uses since the Stone Age. Packed with vitamin E, minerals (such as magnesium, potassium, calcium, iron, manganese, zinc, copper, platinum, phosphorus, sulphur, boron, nickel, germanium, tin, iodine, chromium, silver and lithium), vegetable protein, fibre, every essential amino acid, omega-3 fatty acids and chlorophyll, organic hemp protein powder is known to help strengthen the immune system, promote natural weight loss, reduce blood pressure and cholesterol levels, actively stimulate muscle development, repair and recovery, as well as providing a powerful boost of energy.
Organic hemp protein powder – fuel for life!
Organic hemp protein powder is specially formulated to support an athletic or particularly energetic lifestyle. It is rich in a unique type of vegetable protein called Edestin, which is regarded by many as the most edible and readily digestible form of protein available. As well as aiding in the growth and repair of your body, protein serves as a valuable source of fuel.
Indeed, endurance athletes such as triathletes and marathon runners, who require extraordinarily high volumes of protein that can be digested quickly and easily by the body (and without using up too much energy), often turn to organic hemp protein powder for this purpose.
Organic hemp protein powder is also brimming with essential fatty acids and, most importantly, in a 3:1 ratio – the perfect equation for the human body. These fatty acids are ingested by your body as triglycerides and then subsequently broken down in a process known as ‘oxidation’ to produce double the amount of energy even than carbohydrates.
Essential fatty acids aid in the management of your metabolic reactions too, so if your body experiences a dip in blood glucose levels or increased metabolic demand due to physical exercise for example, then it will need yet more energy and the oxidation of fatty acids must be increased to meet the additional demand. Organic hemp protein powder allows you to bridge that gap.
Supercharge your day with organic hemp protein powder
Organic hemp protein powder is not only a favourite with the more energetically inclined – its deliciously creamy texture and faintly nutty flavour make it a popular superfood for those looking to increase their protein intake, such as vegans, vegetarians and raw food fans.
And, as it’s completely gluten free, organic hemp protein powder is equally suitable for people with a gluten allergy or intolerance.
Organic hemp protein powder is also incredibly versatile that is used in a variety of recipes including smoothies and energy bars, which are very handy as a way to kick start your day, as a on the go snack whenever you need a boost of energy, or as a pre or post workout power nibble!
