Our Hemp Protein Super Shake provides complete, balanced, and natural protein made from hemp seed, as well as a range of phytonutrients from nutritious superfoods and herbs. It is also high in dietary fibre, which is beneficial for a healthy gut and stable blood sugar levels beating single-ingredient protein powders.
Hemp seed contains all of the essential amino acids and essential fatty acids (such as Omega 3) necessary to maintain health and improve immune function. The protein in hemp is very similar to the protein in human blood plasma, which is what makes it so easy to digest.
Hemp Protein Super Shake does not cause bloating or flatulence, which many people experience with dairy-based protein powders – an ideal alternative to whey and soya.
Why is Our Hemp Protein Super Shake So Good?
Hemp Protein Super Shake contains no hexane or other toxic chemicals, which are often used during the hemp protein extraction process. Our hemp protein is extracted using only water, pressure, and then flocculation.
As well as the nutritious hemp protein, the Hemp Protein Super Shake formula also contains a number of whole food nourishing superfoods, including Alfalfa, red beetroot, Ceylon cinnamon bark, dandelion root, green tea, spirulina, Acerola cherry fruit (17% vitamin C), chlorella, blackcurrant fruit, parsley leaf, baobab fruit (70% soluble fibre), spinach leaf, acai berry, and fenugreek.
Vegan, dairy-free, and gluten-free our Super Shake blend contains 16 servings. Each one providing all essential amino acids and is high in dietary fibre, which is beneficial for healthy digestion and stable blood sugar levels.
Hemp seed: contains all of the essential amino acids and essential fatty acids (EFAs, such as Omega 3) necessary to maintain health and improve immune function. Hemp seeds also have antioxidant effects and a broad range of vitamins and minerals (including vitamin E, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, niacin, riboflavin, thiamine, vitamin B6, and folate) as well as a complete, natural, and balanced source of protein. No other single plant source provides complete protein nutrition in such an easily digestible form. The protein in hemp is very similar to the protein in human blood plasma, which is what makes it so easy to digest.
Alfalfa: Alfalfa is rich in chlorophyll, vitamins (such as pro-vitamin A (B-carotene) and vitamins B6, C, D, E, K, and P) and minerals (such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, and zinc). It also contains all 8 essential amino acids (the building blocks of protein), yields 10 x more mineral value than an average grain, and contains 8 essential enzymes. Alfalfa also consists of medicinal “actives”, such as isoflavones, sterols, and other plant phytoestrogens that (working together with the plant’s natural fibre) promote healthy cholesterol levels.
Red beetroot: a good source of carbohydrates and proteins and is also rich in a variety of vitamins (including vitamins A, B, and C), minerals (including magnesium, manganese, sodium, potassium, calcium, and phosphorus), antioxidants (such as betanin, the pigment that gives beetroot its colour) and other nutrients, such as soluble fibre, iron, folic acid, and betaine. It has a very low caloric value, is almost entirely free of fats, and has a low glycaemic load. It is also extraordinarily rich in dietary nitrate, making it popular with athletes. This nutrient leads to a reduction in oxygen uptake, increasing stamina, and making exercise less tiring.
Cinnamon bark: has anti-spasmodic, anti-microbial, carminative, anti-diarrhoea, anti-worm, and antiseptic properties. The bark helps to counteract flatulence and diarrhoea. Cinnamon also helps to maintain stable blood sugar levels and is therefore very useful for diabetics.
Dandelion root: a gentle digestive aid that also helps regulate blood sugar levels.
Green tea: rich in catechin polyphenols. Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), in particular, is a powerful antioxidant. Some studies have shown green tea polyphenols to have a stronger antioxidant action than vitamin C and vitamin E – two of the most powerful antioxidants found in nature. Green tea is effective at lowering LDL cholesterol and blood pressure levels. It is also known to be beneficial for weight loss, because the polyphenols induce thermogenesis and stimulate fat oxidation, boosting the metabolic rate without increasing the heart rate.
Spirulina: highly nutritious blue-green algae. It is used for boosting the immune system, improving digestion, reducing fatigue and building endurance, cleansing and detox purposes, boosting energy levels, controlling appetite, and reducing inflammation. It is a complete food that supplies an incredibly wide range of nutrients, including protein, vitamins, minerals, Omega 6 fatty acids, chlorophyll, and other phytonutrients.
Acerola cherry: has exceptional nutritional value and naturally high levels of bioavailable (easily absorbed) vitamin C – 30x the amount found in oranges of the same weight. They also represent a good source of vitamin and antioxidant power – researchers have identified nearly 150 nutritive constituents in Acerola cherries, which include bioflavonoids, proteins, mineral salts, iron, calcium, and phosphorus.
Chlorella: a powerful detoxification aid, which has been proven to bind with heavy metals and pesticides – such as PCBs – which can accumulate in our bodies. It is also a fibrous material, which means that it supports healthy digestion and overall digestive tract health.
Blackcurrants: extraordinarily rich in vitamin C and far superior to navel oranges – containing more than three times the amount. It also contains a good amount of calcium, potassium, phosphorus, iron and vitamin E. Blackcurrants are a great food for supporting energy levels and the seeds are rich in unsaturated fatty acids. They are also packed with antioxidants (anthocyanins, a type of polyphenol).
Parsley leaf: has many health benefits and a host of nutrients, such as vitamins A, C, and E, bioflavonoids, iron, folic acid, flavonoids, chlorophyll, and other powerful antioxidants and phytonutrients. Parsley contains more vitamin C than any other culinary vegetable, i.e. approximately three times as much as that found in oranges and about the same amount as blackcurrants. Its iron content is high (around twice as much as spinach). It is also a good source of manganese, calcium, and potassium.
Baobab fruit: an excellent source of many vitamins and minerals, it has five times the magnesium of avocados, four times the potassium of bananas, twice the calcium of milk, twice the antioxidants of acai berries, ten times the vitamin C of oranges and ten times the fibre of apples. Due to the fact that it is high in dietary fibre, it has been shown to support digestive health, as well as reduce feelings of hunger. Baobab may also help slow the increase of blood sugar levels and decrease the amount of insulin needed to keep your blood sugar under control.
Spinach: loaded with iron, calcium, folic acid, vitamin K, vitamin C, fibre and carotenoids. Add its lutein and bioflavonoids and spinach is a nutritional powerhouse! The calcium content in spinach helps to strengthen bones and the A and C vitamins, fibre, folic acid, magnesium, and other nutrients help to fight disease and boost the immune system. Folate also lowers the blood levels of homocysteine – a protein that damages arteries – and therefore helps to protect against heart disease.
Acai berry: Found only in the Amazon rainforests of Central and South America, these berries contain a wide array of vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, and antioxidants. These berries can supply valuable nutrients to support energy levels, the immune system, and nutrient intake during periods of reduced calories and increased physical activity.
Fenugreek: loaded with antioxidants it soothes irritated tissues, reduces blood sugar, improves digestion, and promotes healing. Rich in lipids, protein, protease inhibitors, alkaloids, fibre, phosphorus, iron, calcium, niacin, vitamin C, selenium, and various other nutrients. Plus, it reduces fatty tissues, thereby aiding in natural weight loss.
