Humans are composed of 15 to 20 percent proteins. With its high nutrient content, hemp protein provides the body with vital building materials such as polyunsaturated fatty acids, iron, zinc and important vitamins. In addition, it contains all 21 known amino acids, including the eight essential ones that the adult human body cannot produce itself. As a plant-based, gluten-free and lactose-free product, hemp protein powder is a good choice for anyone who follows a special diet, e.g. allergy sufferers, vegetarians, vegans.
