Hemp Seed Protein to the Rescue

Hemp Seed Protein to the Rescue

Hemp is a novel plant. On the one hand in the form of specific types of marijuana it contains virtual hallucinogenic substances. This is true both if it is eaten and smoked. On the other hand in yet a different form, that is as so-called industrial hemp, it contains highly nutritional and therapeutic components which are powerful substances for the promotion of optimal health.
Food hemp is entirely safe for human consumption. In fact, it is an essential source of nutrition. The food part arises from the seeds, which are rich in a wide range of nutrients. Hemp seeds are a true gift of Nature. They are among the densest source of vegetable protein known, containing all 9 essential amino acids. The protein in these seeds is highly digestible, even more so than many animal protein sources such as meat. Some one-fourth protein by weight this makes hempseed protein one of the highest value proteins known, and this is why this protein is so ideal as a food supplement. One of the key proteins found in hempseed powder is albumin, a most rare protein complex found, for instance, in egg whites. A deficiency of albumin is common in the chronically ill, particularly those with liver disease and malabsorption syndromes.
See how critical hemp protein was over history with this screen capture from an early 20th century write-up regarding the protein’s use in both India and Turkey, the site of origin for the original hemp plants:
It’s a stimulant for the glands and an all-around activator of the endocrine system? All from a seed protein complex? What whole food protein could be more profoundly superior than this? Obviously, the amino acids in hempseed protein are so bioavailable that the are readily used by the endocrine glands to build new hormones, the very hormones that are the basis for life itself. For Ottoman Turkey, for instance, it was one of the main source of nourishment for people who suffered degenerative conditions. In China, too, it was renown for its capacity to combat nutritional degeneration.
No wonder, then, it was used for regenerating the weak and the convalescent. Hempseed protein is among the most readily digested and assimilated of all protein types. It is so well utilized that, after consuming it, it is as if nothing was eaten at all, rarely if ever causing the slightest digestive upset. This makes it an ideal type of protein for the weak and feeble.
Besides protein, what is hemp seed most dense in terms of nutrients: vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, oil compounds, and more? It is an exceptional source of magnesium and also a top source of phosphorus, while a good source of calcium. Furthermore, it contains goodly amounts of potassium, zinc, manganese, and iron.
Regarding vitamins, it is particularly dense in B vitamins, including thiamine, niacin, riboflavin, and pyridoxine. Incredibly, it is also a good source of vitamin D, containing some 2300 IU per 100 grams. Regarding vitamin E it is also dense, containing 80 mg per 100 grams. The vitamin A content, as beta carotene, is rich at some 3800 IU per 100 grams, nearly twice the daily minimum.
It would be difficult to find food of a greater density in nutrients than hemp, making it the ultimate super-food. Because it is so dense it is an energy food, that is it creates energy, rather than draining it. There is virtually no sugar in hemp, making it ideal for people with hypoglycemia and also diabetics. As an aid to this sprouted brown rice powder can also be used. Such sprouted protein powder adds nutritional density not found in hemp, including additional B vitamins, ferulic acid, novel soluble fiber compounds, and the potent vitamin E-like antioxidants, tocotrienols.
When combined with wild, raw chaga powder, that is micropulverized wild chaga, it becomes even more super-charged (Note: one exceptionally nutritious hemp protein powder is now available containing sprouted brown rice powder, organic hempseed powder, wild, raw micropulverized chaga, and organic yacon powder).
There are also the essential fatty acids found in hempseed in rich supplies, including essential omega 6s and gamma linolenic acid. Such fatty acids are hormone precursors. This may explain the Turkish finding of the value of hemp for endocrine disorders, including disorders of the gonads and adrenals. It is also rich in a special kind of fiber known as soluble fiber, which helps balance blood sugar and even aids in the growth of probiotic bacteria.
So, use organically grown hempseed protein as a part of a daily nutritional program. It is so powerful it can also be used every other day. As a result, there will be more power and energy and certainly a reduction in blood sugar and diabetic symptoms. Furthermore, in the case of nutritional deficiency, poor absorption, irritable bowel, and exhaustion syndromes, the hemp protein powder will result in significant improvement.
The body needs protein for optimal health. It also needs goodly amounts of magnesium, vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin E. and B complex. Incredibly, hempseed protein provides all of these and much more. Yet, for the ultimate powerful effect of this seed protein use the type complexed with sprouted brown rice protein, organic yacon powder (a key prebiotic for working with the soluble fibers), and wild chaga. This makes an ideal weight loss protein powder and also a pre-workout nutritional boost.
