A good workout is never complete without a refreshing protein shake to seal the deal! Protein is proven to aid the body in muscle building and weight loss.

Protein powder is one of the most common and best studied supplements in the world. Though it has a substantial amount of health benefits, whey protein also has a few downfalls as well. I hate to bear bad news, but whey protein is often composed of many artificial ingredients as well as dairy products and excess sweeteners.

Fortunately, there are a variety of different proteins on the market to choose from, and hemp protein powder seems to make the top of the list based on it's growing popularity. Here are 3 reasons why you should make the adopt hemp protein powder to boost your productivity during your workouts!

1. It Is Nutrient Rich

We all know that in order to achieve optimal results at the gym, we have to incorporate healthy foods within our diet plan. This is good news for those who consume hemp protein, as it is loaded with nutrients! Hemp seeds, derived directly from the marijuana plant, are a great source of vitamin E, potassium, sodium, phosphorus, magnesium, iron, zinc and sulfur. And best of all, this protein is ALL natural and is not packed with unhealthy sugars or any other toxic ingredients. Enjoying a protein shake with so many healthy contents will help you meet your daily nutritional goals and feel good in the process!

2. It Helps With Muscle Building and Weight Loss

Impressively, hemp seed protein contains about 5.3 grams of protein per tablespoon! It is nearly impossible to gain muscle without consuming an adequate amount of protein. Proteins actually make up muscles within the body as well as it's vital organs and tissue. If you suffer from a protein deficiency, your fat burning potential will ultimately decrease and it will be harder for your to lose weight. Yikes! Your initial reaction to this dilemma may be to heighten the intensity of your workouts by adding more weight and reps, but it is unlikely that this idea will work because chronic physical and mental fatigue are also a side effect of lack of protein. Hemp seed powder also contains both edestin which promotes muscle development ,and ALL essential muscle building amino acids- we all know how important amino acids are to attain muscle growth.

3. It Is Easy To Digest

Now only can an imbalance within your digestive system slow you down at the gym, but it can also cause a number of health problems. Hemp seed protein is very easy to digest as it contains the "globular proteins", albumin and edestin. Most protein powders are low in fiber, but hemp protein powder contains about 4 grams per ounce. This water soluble protein also includes chlorophyll which works as a natural energizer and detoxifier. No more upset stomachs or sluggishness in the gym!

Hemp protein powder is a much healthier, "vegan-friendly" choice to boost your performance during workouts and normal functions throughout your day!
