Complete Plant Based Hemp Protein powder blend
The Complete Plant Based Hemp Protein powder blend provides complete, balanced and natural protein from hemp seed, as well as a range of phyto-nutrients from nutritious superfoods and herbs and high contain of Omega 3-6-9 fatty acids. It is also high in dietary fibre, which is beneficial for a healthy colon and stable blood sugar levels. It beats single-ingredient protein powders hands-down!
The protein in Complete Hemp Protein powder blend is plant-based protein from hemp seed, providing 45.2g per 100g. Hemp seed provides complete plant proteins (all essential amino acids), making it an excellent alternative to animal protein.
It is easily digestible and does not cause bloating or flatulence, which many people experience with dairy-based protein powders – an ideal alternative to whey and soya.
Unlike many other hemp protein powders on the market, Complete Hemp Protein powder blend contains no hexane or other toxic chemicals, which are often used during the hemp protein extraction process. Our hemp protein is extracted using only water, pressure and then flocculation.
As well as the nutritious hemp protein, the Complete Hemp Protein powder blend formula also contains a number of superfoods and herbs, namely:
Alfalfa, red beetroot, Ceylon cinnamon bark, dandelion root, green tea, spirulina, Acerola cherry fruit (17% vitamin C), chlorella, blackcurrant fruit, parsley leaf, baobab fruit (70% soluble fibre), spinach leaf, acai berry and fenugreek.
Omega fatty acids
As we mentioned before, hemp protein is produced by the fine sowing of hemp cake – the by-product of cold pressing hemp seeds. Despite the oil being squeezed (cold-pressed) out of the seeds, some of the fats still remain in the hemp cake. Unlike the typical diet, which usually contains a very unbalanced ratio of omega fatty acids, the hemp protein powder has the ideal ratio (3:1) of omega fatty acids (omega 6 & omega 3) for humans, and are of great importance for heart health.
This powder can be used as part of a high-protein vegan diet plan.
Hemp seed: Hemp contains all of the essential amino acids and essential fatty acids (EFAs, such as Omega 3) necessary to maintain health and improve immune function. Hemp seeds also have antioxidant effects and a broad range of vitamins and minerals (including vitamin E, magnesium,phosphorous, potassium, niacin, riboflavin, thiamine, vitamin B6 and folate). Taken together, these characteristics are why hemp is considered to be a superfood,as well as a complete, natural and balanced source of protein. Being deficient in EFAs and their metabolites decreases protein synthesis, impedes muscle repair and may cause the body to retain fat, because it senses it does not have all the nutrients it needs. No other single plant source provides complete protein nutrition in such an easily digestible form, nor has the oils essential to life in as perfect a ratio for human health and vitality. The protein in hemp is very similar to the protein in human blood plasma, which is what makes it so easy to digest (unlike other sources of protein that have been associated with intestinal bloating and discomfort).
Alfalfa: Alfalfa is rich in chlorophyll, vitamins (such as pro-vitamin A (B-carotene) and vitamins B6, C, D, E, K and P) and minerals (such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron and zinc). It also contains all 8 essential amino acids(the building blocks of protein), yields 10x more mineral value than an average grain and contains 8 essential enzymes, namely:
- amylase (digests starch)
- coagulase (coagulates milk)
- invertase (converts sugar to dextrose)
- emulsin (acts upon sugars)
- peroxidase (oxidises blood)
- lipase (fat-splitting enzyme)
- pectinase (forms a vegetable jelly from pectin)
- protease (digests proteins).
Alfalfa also consists of medicinal “actives”, such as isoflavones, sterols and other plant phyto-estrogens that (working together with the plant’s natural fibre) promote healthy cholesterol levels.
Red beetroot: Beetroot is a good source of carbohydrates and proteins and is also rich in a variety of vitamins (including vitamins A, B and C), minerals (including magnesium, manganese, sodium, potassium, calcium and phosphorus), antioxidants (such as betanin, the pigment that gives beetroot its colour) and other nutrients, such as soluble fibre, iron, folic acid and betaine
Cinnamon bark: Cinnamon has anti-spasmodic, anti-microbial, carminative, anti-diarrhoea, anti-wormand antiseptic properties. The bark helps to counteract flatulence and diarrhoea. It is also used for a weak digestive system, vomiting, hyper-acidity, to promote secretion of gastric juices, irritable bowel, summer diarrhoea, colds and flu. It can help to suppress growth of numerous harmful micro-organisms, such as Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus and Candida albicans. Cinnamon also helps to maintain stable blood sugar levels and is therefore very useful for diabetics.
Dandelion root: The dandelion has been a staple of the traditional herbal pharmacopoeia for centuries. In Europe, the dandelion is still respected as the nutritional and medicinal powerhouse that it is. Among other things, dandelion root has been used as a gentle laxative, digestive aid, to treat liver and kidney problems, to relieve inflammation, boils, fever and diarrhoea and to help regulate blood sugar levels. Dandelion root is also known to stimulate the appetite.
Green tea: Green tea is rich in catechin polyphenols. Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), in particular, is a powerful antioxidant. Some studies have shown green tea polyphenols to have a stronger antioxidant action than vitamin C and vitamin E – two of the most powerful antioxidants found in nature. Green tea is effective at lowering LDL cholesterol and blood pressure levels and inhibiting the abnormal formation of blood clots. Green tea is also known to be beneficial for weight loss, because the polyphenols induce thermogenesis and stimulate fat oxidation, boosting the metabolic rate without increasing the heart rate.
