Why you Need Protein
Proteins are the main building blocks in our cells and are used to make muscles, tendons, organs and skin. Proteins are also used to make enzymes, hormones, neurotransmitters. Without protein, life would not be possible.
All 8 Essential Amino Acids
Hemp seeds have a protein structure of 66% edestin and 33% albumin; and, contains all 8 essential amino acids plus 2 conditionally essential amino acids. No other plant or animal source, aside from hemp, contains the first ten amino acids necessary for health.
Easily Digested & Absorbed
Helps maintain a healthy immune system. The Edestin protein found in hemp seeds can stimulate the manufacture of antibodies against foreign invaders and is hypoallergenic.
Quinoa is a Super Food
Rich in dietary fibre, healthy fats, manganese, magnesium, iron, copper, B vitamins (especially B6), potassium, folic acid, and phosphorous.
Repair and Build With Hemp and Quinoa
Training increases circulating catabolic hormones to facilitate the breakdown of glycogen and fat for fuel. These hormone levels remain high after exercise and continue to break down muscle tissue. Without nutrient intake, this catabolic cascade continues for hours post-exercise, contributing to muscle soreness and possibly compromising training adaptations and subsequent performance.
To repair and build muscle, athletes must refuel with high-protein foods immediately following exercise, especially after resistance training. They should consume 20 to 40g of protein that includes 3 to 4 g of leucine per serving to increase muscle protein synthesis.
Your body requires nine essential amino acids to build muscle and body tissue: histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan and valine. Quinoa and Hemp are among the few foods that contains all nine.
