High in Protein

Essential for building and maintaining muscle, protein is a critical part of every person’s diet. From bodybuilders and gym junkies to teachers and accountants, we all need protein to fuel our bodies. 

Hemp seeds and protein powder contain all of the 21 known amino acids, including the nine essential amino acids that the body isn’t able to produce independently. An incredible plant-based protein, hemp contains a whopping 50-70% more protein than flax or chia and is an ideal source of added protein for vegan and vegetarian diets. 


Containing Omega 3, 6, 9 and Essential Fatty Acids

High in omega 3,6 and 9 and a range of essential fatty acids, hemp seeds provide your body with nutrients for healthy and optimal function. Helping to naturally balance inflammation levels, the omegas are critical in strengthening the immune system and keeping you safe against viruses and bacteria. 

In addition to boosting your immune system and function, hemp seeds provide your body with the omegas and fatty acids required for skin health. Once you add hemp seeds to either your diet or as a topical solution, you’ll notice a boost in the health and condition of your skin. 


Aiding in Weight Loss

Acting as a natural appetite suppressant, hemp seeds can aid in your weight loss regime. Naturally low in carbs but high in fibre, adding hemp seeds to your diet helps you feel fuller for longer by banishing cravings and the desire to unnecessarily snack.

Not only just keeping you full, the suite of nutrients and essential fatty acids works to enhance your overall health, immune system and wellbeing.

Hemp seeds generally become hulled or with their shell intact. With seemingly endless options, here’s how we love to include hemp seeds in our diets: 

  • Blended into a powder and added to your favourite smoothie. Our latest batch of protein powder is 60% protein.
  • Sprinkled over salads or a smoothie bowl
  • Used as an oil replacement for olive oil as a salad dressing
  • Incorporated into granola or with yoghurt
  • Hemp Milk (recipe and means to make it included with the packet)
  • Pestos and dips (see recipes on our website. E-book coming out soon)
