For those who are doing high intensity training - endurance athletes or body builders, or even if you are just looking for a vegetarian/vegan source of protein, organic Hemp Protein Powder is the best protein powder available. Hemp Protein gets absorbed faster than any other protein and 15g of organic Hemp Protein Powder is more anabolic than 50g Whey, since 2/3 of it is made up of Edestin - a plant protein only found in Hemp - it is similar to protein found in the human body. That makes it perfect for DNA and cellular growth. It also makes it easily digested, so you won’t make those awfully smelly protein gas, like you do when you drink other protein powders.

As Hemp Protein Powders become more readily available in South Africa, be aware what you are buying, as not all Hemp "Protein Powders" are created equal. Most, in fact all, Hemp Protein Powders (and here we do not mean concentrates or isolates which are created through extraction processes) are made from raw hemp 'cake' (when cold pressing the seed to extract oil, the residual is called 'cake'). This cake still contains oil, fibre, EFA's and Amino's.

However, if you just take the cake and dry and crush it, what you get at best is a rough flour. This rough powder does contain protein, but will contain a lower % protein per serving than if you refined the cake to an actual Protein Powder.

So yes, Hemptons' Hemp Protein Powders are more expensive than some you may find, but our Protein Powders are created from organically grown crops and then processed to an actual Protein Powder - to provide you with a healthy source of vegetable Protein - with a specific amount of Protein per serving.

 

Looking For An Effective Protein Powder That Works?

Protein powders are the single most important addition to your diet for the development and repair of new muscle tissue after strenuous exercise..

What You Should Be Looking For In A Protein Powder?

Settling for the wrong protein powder means the difference between mediocre muscle and a sleeve-splitting physique - between feeling bloated and toxic versus healthy and fit. Let's evaluate what you need to look at :

Effectiveness: The bottom line is whether or not a protein powder performs. We break it down to determine if a protein powder is adequate or amazing.

Speed of Results: You have your fitness goals and we check to see if a protein powder has a decent time-frame for expected results.

Ingredient Composition: Having quality ingredients is only half the battle, having the right concentrations is just as important.

Product Safety: The last thing you need when you’re body building is unwanted side effects that slow you down, we identify anything that could stunt your progress.

Overall Value: Considering the entire protein powder as a whole, conclude whether the value it provides is worth the price.

So how does Hemp Protein stack up?
Effectiveness:

You will need less Hemp Protein Powder than Whey, since there are no fillers and additives and it supplies the eight essential amino acids and trans-acids, you need much less hemp protein than whey protein for equal benefit.

Hemp protein won’t sludge your system, bloat you, or cause you to feel uncomfortable. Your body can instantly recognize and digest natural, entire hemp protein. 

Speed of Results:

In our 12 and 16 week trials, subjects found their goals were met, whether it was weight loss, muscle gain, fitness levels etc. They only used Hemp Protein and Hemp Omega Supplements. (See Ambassadors for more)

Amino Acids

Trytophan - Tryptophan helps to regulate sleep cycles - and can help conditions such as adult ADD. It is also believed that this amino acid helps to regulate your appetite and may be a useful supplement for weight loss programs. It also assist the body in creating serotonin and niacin.

Valine - an essential amino acid*. It is a Branched Chain Amino Acid (BCAA)** Valine plays an important role in stress, energy and muscle metabolism. This amino acid is used directly by skeletal muscle as an energy source and is thought to have anabolic property. This means it helps promote protein production, storage and muscle growth. Valine may also help treat malnutrition associated with drug addiction. Valine is also helpful in synthesis of glucose in liver especially during anaerobic activities (activities without proper amount of oxygen intake).

Threonine - an essential amino acid*. It prevents muscle catabolism and therefore helps you recover from workouts and get better overall results It is one of the 20 most common natural amino acids. Threonine is another hydroxyl-containing amino acid. Threonine is an important component in the formation of protein, collagen, elastin and tooth enamel. It is also important for production of neurotransmitters and health of the nervous system. Threonine has a mild glucose-sparing effect and is useful in the stabilization of blood sugar because it can be converted into glucose in the liver by the process of gluconeogenesis. Threonine is one of the immune-stimulating nutrients (cysteine, lysine, alanine, and aspartic acid are others), as it promotes thymus growth and activity. Threonine may enhance immunity by assisting in the production of agents that fight viral infections. It also can probably promote cell immune defense function.

Isoleucine - an essential amino acid*. It is a Branched Chain Amino Acid (BCAA). It is one of the 20 most common natural amino acids and coded for in DNA. Its chemical composition is identical to that of leucine, but the arrangement of its atoms is slightly different resulting in different properties. Isoleucine, used in conjunction with l-leucine and l-methionine, is necessary for muscle building as well as muscle recovery after exercise.  It is also needed for the formation of hemoglobin as well as assisting with regulation of blood sugar levels as well as energy levels. It is also involved in blood-clot formation. A dietary essential amino acid, isoleucine is needed for optimal growth in childhood. Isoleucine is necessary for the optimal growth of infants and for nitrogen balance in adults. 

Leucine - an essential amino acid*. It is a Branched Chain Amino Acid (BCAA). Leucine plays an important role in stress, energy and muscle metabolism. This amino acid is used directly by skeletal muscle as an energy source and is thought to have anabolic property. This means it helps promote protein production, storage and muscle growth. It is one of the 20 most common amino acids on earth and coded for by DNA. Its chemical composition is identical to that of isoleucine, but its atoms are arranged differently resulting in different properties. Leucine is obtained by the hydrolysis of protein by pancreatic enzymes during digestion and necessary for optimal growth in infants and children and for the maintenance of nitrogen balance in adults. Leucine lowers elevated blood sugar levels and is necessary in promoting the healing of bones, skin, and muscle tissue. Leucine is used as a source for the synthesis of blood sugar in the liver during starvation, stress, and infection to aid in healing. Leucine is a direct-acting nutrient signal that regulates protein synthesis in adipose tissue. Leucine works with valine and isoleucine to protect and fuel the muscles. Leucine is believed to help a person maintain muscle mass, which is essential for long-term weight management because muscle helps the body burn more calories. Supplements and protein powders that contain leucine are used extensively by bodybuilders and other athletes to promote muscle recovery. It also works to increase endurance and enhance energy. Leucine is an important amino acid for the production of hemoglobin. It maintains blood sugar levels and increases growth hormone (HGH) production.

Lysine - an essential amino acid*. Lysine has many functions in the body because it is incorporated into many proteins, each of which is used by the body for a variety of purposes. It is an essential building block for all protein, and is needed for proper growth and bone development in children. Lysine helps the body absorb and conserve calcium and it plays an important role in the formation of collagen, a substance important for bones and connective tissues including skin, tendon, and cartilage. When vitamin C is combined with lysine, the formation of collagen is enhanced. Collagen is important to the formation of bone and tissue along with its repair. Because it helps to build muscle protein and repair tissues, lysine is especially important for those recovering from surgery or sports-related injuries.

Phenylalanine - an essential amino acid*. It occurs as a constituent of many proteins and is normally converted to tyrosine in the body.  L-phenylalanine (LPA) serves as a building block for the various proteins that are produced in the body. L-phenylalanine can be converted to l-tyrosine (another amino acid) and subsequently to l-dopa, norepinephrine, and epinephrine. L-tyrosine produced from l-phenylalanine is a precursor in the synthesis of the neurotransmitters norepinephrine anddopamine, among other reactions.  Phenylalanine is used to treated depression (elevates mood), rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis (decreases pain/inflammation), menstrual cramps, Parkinson's disease (improves speech and rigidity), vitiligo (a skin pigment disorder) and cancer (melanoma, tumor growth). L-phenylalanine is associated with nervous states and has anti-depressant properties. Phenylalanine is part of certain hormones in the body which affect moods e.g., melanotropin and endorphins etc. Phenylalanine is used in different biochemical processes to produce neurotransmitters, dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine. Norepinephrine is believed to be in short supply in the brains of people who are depressed. By taking in extra phenylalanine, it is hoped the brain will make more nor-epinephrine. L-phenylalanine can promote high blood pressure in those predisposed to hypertension. In the liver, l-phenylalanine is involved in a number of biochemical reactions, including protein synthesis, the formation of l-tyrosine and oxidative catabolic reactions.

Methionine - an essential amino acid*. Methionine supplies sulfur and other compounds required by the body for normal metabolism and growth. It is an important source of dietary sulfur. Methionine also belongs to a group of compounds called lipotropics; others in this group include choline, inositol, and betaine. Methionine is one of only two amino acids encoded by just one codon (AUG) in the standard genetic code (tryptophan, encoded by UGG, is the other). L-methionine is a sulfur-containing amino acid that is minimally soluble in water. Its sulfur is non reactive. Methionine reacts with adenosine triphosphate to form S-adenosyl methionine. S-adenosyl methionine (SAMe) is the principal methyl donor in the body and contributes to the synthesis of many important substances, including epinephrine and choline.  SAMe is involved in the synthesis of creatine, epinephrine, melatonin and the polyamines spermine and spermidine, among several other substances. Methionine plays a role in cysteine, carnitine and taurine synthesis by the trans-sulfuration pathway, lecithin production, the synthesis of phosphatidylcholine and other phospholipids. Methionine in lipotropic combinations has been proposed for treating endometriosis, a condition in which patches of endometrial tissue from the uterine lining grow outside the uterus. Methionine is an especially important nutrient beneficial for those suffering from estrogen dominance, where the amount of estrogen in the body is excessively high when compared to its opposing hormone called progesterone. The nutrient is believed to help by expediting the removal of excess estrogen from the liver. Methionine is both an antioxidant and lipotrope, meaning it helps remove fat from the liver. Methionine contributes to the hydro-phobicity of a protein. Methionine controls the level of beneficial sulfur-containing compounds in the body. These sulfur-containing compounds are in turn vital for defending against toxic compounds like heavy metals in the liver. Methionine helps reduce histamine levels, which are amino acids that control dilation of blood vessels and influence brain function.

Arginine - a conditional or semi-essential amino acid. This means that under normal circumstances the body can synthesize sufficient L-arginine to meet physiological demands. Even so, arginine is often classed as one of the 10 essential amino acids, it is usually considered essential to the diet of children for the maintenance of normal rates of growth. L-arginine is a protein amino acid present in the proteins of all life forms. Arginine is involved in numerous areas of human biochemistry, including ammonia detoxification, hormone secretion, and immune modulation. Conversion by nitric oxide synthase to citrulline also yields the vasoactive mediator nitric oxide. Dietary intake remains the primary determinant of plasma arginine levels, since the rate of arginine biosynthesis does not increase to compensate for depletion or inadequate supply. Arginine is involved in multiple areas of human physiology and metabolism. Arginine plays an important role in cell division, the healing of wounds, removing ammonia from the body, immune function, and the release of hormones. L-arginine, is an immune system enhancer. It stimulates the thymus gland, boosts white blood cell production and stimulates release of growth hormone. L-arginine is used by the immune system to help regulate the activity of the thymus gland, which is responsible for manufacturing lymphocytes. Arginine is needed to increase protein synthesis, which can in turn increase cellular replication. Therefore, arginine may help people with inadequate numbers of certain cells. Although it is not a major inter-organ shuttle of nitrogen, arginine nevertheless plays an important role in nitrogen metabolism as an intermediate in the urea cycle, making it essential for ammonia detoxification. The body uses arginine to produce nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is an endogenous messenger molecule involved in a variety of endothelium-dependent physiological effects in the cardiovascular system. Nitric oxide is an important regulator of vasomotor function in the gut. Patients with congestive heart failure (CHF) have reduced peripheral blood flow at rest, during exercise, and in response to endothelium-dependent vasodilators. Nitric oxide formed from arginine metabolism in endothelial cells contributes to regulation of blood flow under these conditions. Arginine supplements appear to reduce mildly elevated blood pressure by enhancing the synthesis of nitric oxide (a gas) in the cells that line the blood vessels. This helps dilate vessel walls and improve blood flow around the heart. Arginine supplementation may reduce the risk of atherosclerosis. Arginine has been found to increase blood flow to the heart and improve the chest pains caused by angina in some patients. Arginine may help stimulate the activity and increase the size of the thymus gland, which begins to decrease in size after puberty. Arginine is known to stimulate growth hormone release and has been said to increase muscle mass and fat loss. Human growth hormone is secreted by a gland in the brain and has a direct effect on metabolism by increasing the levels of fat and glucose burnt for energy.

Cysteine - a nonessential amino acid, is one of the 20 building blocks of protein. Cysteine is a part of organic molecules containing an amino group, which can combine in linear arrays to form proteins in living organisms. Cysteine can be synthesized by the body and is not essential to the diet. Its key chemical feature is a thiol group that contains sulfur. Cysteine is one of the key components in all living things. Proteins are synthesized by formation of peptide bonds during ribosomal translation of messenger RNA. Cysteine plays a key role in stabilizing extracellular proteins. Cysteine strengthens the protective lining of the stomach and intestines, which may help prevent damage caused by aspirin and similar drugs. In addition, cysteine may play an important role in the communication between immune system cells.

Tyrosine - 4-hydroxyphenylalanine, or 2-amino-3(4-hydroxyphenyl)-propanoic acid, is one of the 20 amino acids that are used by cells to synthesize proteins. L-tyrosine is synthesized from phenylalanine, another amino acid. L-tyrosine, through its effect on neurotransmitters, is used to treat conditions including mood enhancement, appetite suppression and growth hormone stimulation. In addition, tyrosine is reported to have an antioxidant effect, which may protect people from cancer development, coronary heart disease, and aging. Tyrosine appears to prevent the decline in various aspects of performance and mood associated with many kinds of acute stress, and may prove useful in improving performance in situations where performance is compromised by stress. Tyrosine may act as an adaptogen, helping the body adapt to and cope with the effects of physical or psychological stress by minimizing the symptoms brought on by stress. Tyrosine is involved in the synthesis of enkephalins (pronounced en-keff-a-lins), substances that have pain-relieving effects. Tyrosine supplementation may be used in the treatment of Parkinson's disease, because tyrosine can make l-dopa which is used directly to treat Parkinson's disease. Tyrosine aids in the the production of melanin (pigment responsible for hair and skin color) and in the functions of the adrenal, thryroid, and pituitary glands.

Histidine - is one of the 20 most common natural amino acids. Histidine is present in many proteins. L-histidine cannot be formed by other nutrients, and must be in the diet to be available to the body. Histidine is called a semi-essential amino acid (protein building block) because adults generally produce adequate amounts but children may not. Histidine is the direct precursor of histamine, it is also an important source of carbon atoms in the synthesis of purines. The body uses histidine to manufacture histamine, and histamine is responsible for a wide range of physiological processes.  Histidine is needed to help grow and repair body tissues, and to maintain the myelin sheaths that protect nerve cells. It also helps manufacture red and white blood cells, and helps to protect the body from heavy metal toxicity. The stomach uses histidine to produce gastric juices. L-histidine may be indicated for use in some with rheumatoid arthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis is known to be associated with low blood levels of histidine and elevated 3-methylhistidine. Histidine plays a significant role in the growth and repair of tissues, ulcers, hyperacidity, digestion, and gastric juices, as well as in the production of red and white blood cells. Histidine in conjunction with zinc can increase zinc absorption from the gut. In its role as a zinc binding protein, histidine is important for the formation of myelin, a type of insulating fat which surrounds many nerve fibres.

Proline - is a non-essential amino acid that is involved in the production of collagen and in wound healing. Proline is the precursor for hydroxyproline, which the body incorporates into collagen, tendons, ligaments, and the heart muscle. Proline helps strengthen cardiac muscle. Collagen in the skin contains hydroxyproline and hydroxylysine, which is formed from proline and lysine, in which ascorbic acid (vitamin C) seems to be important in this conversion. Collagen contains about 15 % proline. It also helps in the maintenance and healing of cartilage and the strengthening of joints, tendons, and muscles including the heart muscle. The metabolism of proline is connected to enzymes that require niacin and vitamin C. Proline is an important component in certain medical wound dressings that use collagen fragments to stimulate wound healing. Osteoarthritis may be related to abnormalities in collagen structure as well as the bone disease, osteogenesis imperfecta. Proline improves skin texture by aiding in the production of collagen and reducing the loss of collagen through the aging process

Glutamine -  is one of the 20 amino acids encoded by the genetic code. Glutamine is a non-essential amino acid, meaning it can be produced by the body and is involved in a variety of metabolic processes. Glutamine has recently been re-classified as a conditionally essential amino acid. This means that while the body can make glutamine, under extreme physical stress the demand for glutamine exceeds the body's ability to synthesize it. During times of stress glutamine reserves are depleted and need to be replenished through supplementation. Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body. Over 61% of skeletal muscle tissue is glutamine. L-glutamine is predominantly synthesized and stored in skeletal muscle.  Glutamine is involved in more metabolic processes than any other amino acid. Glutamine is converted to glucose when more glucose is required by the body as an energy source. Glutamine also plays a part in maintaining proper blood glucose levels and the right pH range. It serves as a source of fuel for cells lining the intestines. Without it, these cells waste away. It is also used by white blood cells and is important for immune function. Glutamine assists in maintaining the proper acid/alkaline balance in the body, and is the basis of the building blocks for the synthesis of RNA and DNA. Glutamine regulates the expression of certain genes, including those that govern certain protective enzymes, and helps regulate the biosynthesis of DNA and RNA. Construction of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) is dependent upon adequate amounts of glutamine. Glutamine increases the body's ability to secrete human growth hormone (HGH). HGH assists in metabolizing body fat and helps to support new muscle tissue growth. Glutamine is important for removing excess ammonia.  The health benefits of glutamine include immune system regulation, nitrogen shuttling, oxidative stress, muscle preservation, intestinal health, injuries, and much more. Supplemental l-glutamine can be helpful in the treatment of arthritis, autoimmune diseases, fibrosis, intestinal disorders such as ulcerative colitis, peptic ulcers, and connective tissue diseases. Glutamine is the primary source of energy for the various cells of the immune system, including T cells and macrophages. Strenuous exercise, viral and bacterial infections, and stress and trauma in general cause glutamine depletion that starves the immune cells. Glutamine helps to protect the lining of the gastrointestinal tract known as the mucosa. Glutamine supplementation maintains the health of the mucosa (inner wall) of the gastrointestinal tract and inhibits muscle wasting in critically ill patients. Glutamine has been shown to enhance the ability of medications to kill cancerous growths. Many people with cancer have abnormally low levels of glutamine. Glutamine protects the liver during toxic chemotherapy, during acetaminophen toxicity, and following a severe inflammatory injury to the liver. Glutamine is used to protect the lining of the small and large intestines from damage caused by chemotherapy or radiation. Glutamine can aid in healing stomach ulcers and prevent inflammation of the stomach that is caused by chronic use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications. 

Aspartic Acid - is one of the 20 commonly found amino acids. Aspartic acid might serve as an excitatory neurotransmitter in the brain. This neurotransmitter may provide resistance to fatigue and thus lead to possessing more endurance. It is also a metabolite in the urea cycle, and participates in gluconeogenesis. Aspartic acid is one of the key components in all living things.

Serine - a precursor to tryptophan, this can be used to improve overall brain function as well as feeding the muscles, improving muscle recovery, and preventing muscle catabolism. Serine can be made in the tissue from glycine (or threonine) so it is nonessential, but its production requires adequate amounts of B3B6, and folic acid. Serine is important in metabolism in that it participates in the biosynthesis of purines and pyrimidines, cysteinetryptophan (in bacteria) , in the formation of cell membranes, and in creatine (part of muscle) synthesis. Serine is needed for the metabolism of fats and fatty acids, muscle growth, and a healthy immune system. It aids in the production of immunoglobulins and antibodies, and is a constituent of brain proteins and nerve sheaths. It is important in the production of cell membranes, and muscle tissue synthesis.

Glycine - is a nonessential amino acid derived from the alkaline hydrolysis of gelatin. Glycine is the simplest of the 20 natural amino acids. Glycine is the only amino acid that does not have optical isomers. Glycine is a protein amino acid found in the protein of all life forms. The body uses it to help the liver in detoxification of compounds and for helping the synthesis of bile acids. Glycine is essential for the synthesis of nucleic acids, bile acids, proteins, peptides, purines, adenosine triphosphate (ATP), porphyrins, hemoglobin, glutathione, creatine, bile salts, one-carbon fragments, glucose, glycogen, and l-serine and other amino acids. Glucagon is a hormone that causes glycogen (stored in the liver) to convert to glucose which is needed by the body for energy. Glycine increases the release of glucose into the blood stream by stimulating the glucagon hormone. Glycine is an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system, especially in the spinal cord. Glycine systems may be important in controlling epilepsy and other CNS disorders. Glycine also enhances the activity of neurotransmitters (chemical messengers) in the brain that are involved in memory and cognition. Glycine may be indicated to help alleviate the symptoms of spasticity.

Alanine - is a nonessential amino acid, it is one of the 20 most common natural amino acids. Alanine is not essential to the human diet, since it can be synthesized from other cellular metabolites. Alanine is manufactured from other amino acids in the liver. Alanine is used by the body to build proteins. Alanine is vital for the production of protein, essential for proper function of the central nervous system and helps form neurotransmitters. Alanine is necessary for the promotion of proper blood glucose levels from dietary protein. Alanine is abundant in human muscle tissue. Alanine is readily converted to glucose when blood sugar levels fall and amino acids are liberated from muscle tissue to provide energy. During exercise the muscles release alanine into the bloodstream in direct proportion to the intensity of the exertion. The alanine is then is converted into glucose and released into the blood plasma. Alanine may help keep blood sugar levels stable during exercise. Glucose can be made from alanine in the liver or muscles when energy is needed, and thus it may help maintain the blood sugar level. Low levels of blood sugar have been linked with fatigue during exertion, some experts believe alanine supplements might enable athletes to exercise for longer periods of time at competitive intensities. Alanine stimulates lymphocyte production and may help people who have immune suppression. Alanine strengthens the immune system by producing antibodies. This amino acid is known to be involved in the metabolism of the vitamin pyridoxine, and also tryptophan.

*  Essential amino acids are amino acids that cannot be synthesized in the body in adequate amounts and must be obtained from the diet. The essential amino acids are isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine. Non-essential amino acids are those that the body can manufacture from an available source of nitrogen and a carbon skeleton. The nonessential amino acids are arginine, alanine, asparagine, aspartic acid, cysteine, glutamine, glutamic acid,glycine, proline, serine, and tyrosine. Semi-essential amino acids are ones that can sometimes be made internally if conditions are right. 

**  The branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) are needed for the maintenance of muscle tissue and appear to preserve muscle stores of glycogen (a storage form of carbohydrate that can be converted into energy). BCAAs serve as important fuel sources for skeletal muscle during periods of metabolic stress. BCAAs may promote protein synthesis, suppress protein catabolism and serve as substrates for gluconeogenesis.
