What does Hemp Protein Powder do?
Hemp is known to be one of the best sources of plant based protein with some additional benefits which make it unique among all other protein powders. While its protein helps in the development of lean muscle strength, it is not a complete protein and is low in both amino acids lysine and leucine. Pea protein powder is high in these and makes a good choice to blend with hemp for a more balanced amino acid profile.
While hemp protein powder is lacking in these amino acids, it has additional unique benefits such as essential Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. These help reduce muscle fatigue and inflammation. Hemp protein powder is also generally high in fiber and can provide as much as 8 grams in a 30gram serve.
