It has been claimed Hemp seed could sustain human life for months without causing nutrient deficiency problems. Hemp is a superior protein and has been utilised for thousands of years by all of the advanced civilisations as medicine and a vital source of food.
Hemp has a protein structure of 65% edestin and 35% albumin, both in a highly digestible state, and contain all 8 essential amino acids plus 2 conditionally essential amino acids. In addition to its super protein profile, it also contains the perfect ratio of omega fatty acids that has been identified for good health: 3- omega-3`s to 1-omega-6. Hemp seeds also contain sufficient quantities of zinc, iron, and magnesium, three of the most common metals/minerals implicated in mineral deficiency diseases.
A human being needs 21 amino acids to survive: Eight are essential and must be obtained from food; two are conditionally essential and can be synthesised if all the eight essential amino acids are consumed. No other plant or animal source, aside from hemp, contains the first ten amino acids necessary for health. Nor do any of them contain the fatty acid ratio essential for life.
Edestin is considered the most easily digestible protein and is very similar to protein in the human body. Hemp contains the highest known levels of Edestin in the plant kingdom, making it a superior source of protein. Albumin is another highly digestible, high-quality source of plant protein.
The high nutrient content of Hempful protein powder makes it a perfect ally in the fight against the craving for unhealthy sweets. Hemp seed food products offer a healthy dose of dietary fiber, which helps regulate blood glucose. When you keep your glucose levels steady, you’re much less likely to experience energy crashes and aren’t as likely to crave sugar to fill the void.
