Debunking The Protein Myth!

 from an article by Wade McNutt

Hemp protein contains all the essential amino acids that your body cannot produce and the precise ratio that your body recognizes and utilizes fully. Hemp protein also contains a good portion of insoluble fiber which acts as a gentle scrubber for cleaning the intestinal tract to make sure nutrient absorption is not compromised by plaque buildup. The result of switching to hemp protein is you get more protein absorbed as well as nutrients, vitamins and minerals with fewer calories eaten.

The Ph balance or acid alkaline ratio is another aspect of eating live proteins that allows your body to stay detoxified as well as more anabolic. Unfortunately, most man made proteins are extraordinary acidic leading to acidic Ph, which leads to intestinal toxemia. Not only that, these undigested proteins end up as all sorts of toxins in your body that can cause all kinds of disease and neurological malfunction. So, to keep it simple the more alkaline you are the more anabolic your body becomes. So, when selecting a hemp protein, here are some points to consider:

Hemp protein also contains a very special group of amino acids called Edestin protein. Edestin is converted into enzymes which makes your body allow you to digest the protein that you eat without using precious metabolic enzymes. High quality hemp protein has up to six strains of naturally occurring probiotics which also act to maintain positive intestinal charge as well as digest food and which helps to put your Ph to a more alkaline state.

  1. Is it organic? Organic products are far superior to inorganic because no pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers were used in any part of the processing or growing.
  2. Uses a “friction only” processing. No chemical additives or not heat treating to damage those amino acid structures that are very delicate inside of a live food.
  3. It is milled below 120 degrees? Heat denatures Enzymes. Without Enzymes you cannot absorb nutrients. Without Enzymes you cannot absorb vitamins, minerals or your proteins.
  4. Is the oxidation of the seeds less than 2 percent which is below the industry standards? Actually, the lower the better. The very best when proteins have an oxidation rate of 1 percent or less. Look for it in the product you select.
  5. Is the protein stored in a cool facility away from oxygen? Oxidization is a big enemy to live protein as it takes away the electrical availability of the protein. Storing Hemp in a cool place is important in maintaining the integrity of the amino acid structure.
  6. Is it a pharmaceutical grade industry processing? Most supplement companies use low tech or bare minimum aspects to produce the product that they make. With pharmaceutical grade you ensure that the cleaning before and after and during the facility usage is at its highest standard ensuring that absolutely no impurities end up in the final product. Very few companies actually deliver on this but you demand the best for your body.
One more thing to consider, when using a hemp protein – its effect on the body is significantly different than amino acids, isolates or meat products. Most people require at least one to two months to fully adjust to the positive effects of hemp protein. Once a person has adapted to it they will see how powerful this muscle building, fat burning product actually is and you will kiss your whey protein goodbye forever. The next time you are going to the store to pick up some protein, select a high quality hemp protein. Stay with it for just a while and you will see the dramatic improvements in your physique.

Hemp Protein

“The problem is the belief that we can overcome disease and death with technology. Supplements are meant to augment food, not replace it. Science is meant to teach us about our world, not remove us from it. And food is meant to nourish us, not merely provide nutrients”.

The Institute for the Psychology of Eating

So why would you ingest a dead protein supplement that adds sugar, chemicals and acid to your body, instead of a natural, non-processed,live, complete protein that supports your immune system, provides macro-nutrients and doesn’t create allergies?

Hemp Protein for Healthy Muscle Growth

Hemp protein contains all 20 known Amino Acids including the 9 essential Amino Acids (EAAs) our bodies cannot produce.  Proteins are considered complete when they contain all 9 essential Amino Acids in a sufficient quantity and ratio to meet the body’s needs.  Hemp seeds contain an adequate supply of these high quality proteins (EAAs) for a well balanced diet.

Hemp protein is free of the tryspin inhibitors which block protein absorption and free of oligosaccharides found in soy, which cause stomach upset and gas.

Not as easy to get lean now that you are no longer in your twenties, right? Or maybe you’ve never been very fit, but are trying to lose fat for the first time and don’t have the benefits of that youthful high metabolism.

No bizarre fad diets are needed, just the standard high protein/low fat plan.  Each daily meal should feature a good source of lean protein but very little animal fat or sugar.  An increasingly educated and health-conscious public is learning about the health benefits of supplemental protein powders, recognizing that they can be part of a healthy lifestyle for just about anyone, not just bodybuilders.

In health fitness, muscle growth is perhaps the most important thing that you can do.  In fact, it may be the most important thing you can do for your body and mind.

The reason growing lean muscle is so important is because it will help with controlling your weight by helping you burn more calories.  It helps the mind by increasing confidence and self worth.  It is of utmost importance in the elderly population, because it will help with osteoporosis, by building stronger, bigger bones and also allows one to be physically stronger and fatigue less easily.

So by growing more muscle daily tasks are much easier, not to mention much safer, helping prevent falls and injuries.  Protein is an essential part of our (living) body and there is a difference between protein that has been cooked and protein in its raw (living) form.  We should realize that our body (which is made of some 100 trillion living cells) is composed of 15 percent protein, making protein the primary solid element in our body and second only to water, which composes 70 % of our body.  Protein is composed of Amino Acids and Amino Acids are made up of chains of atoms.

These atoms that make up Amino Acids that make up protein literally become the building blocks for our body. The problem is that cooking kills food and de-natures or re-arranges the molecular structure of the protein, causing Amino Acids to become coagulated, or fused together.

In his 1980 book, The Health Revolution, Horne writes, “Cooked protein is difficult to digest and when incompletely digested protein enters the colon it putrefies and ammonia is formed. ” Horne quotes Dr.  Willard Visek, Professor of Clinical Sciences at the University of Illinois Medical School as saying, “In the digestion of proteins, we are constantly exposed to large amounts of ammonia in our intestinal tract.  Ammonia behaves like chemicals that cause cancer or promote its growth.  It kills cells, it increases virus infection, it affects the rate at which cells divide and it increases the mass of the lining of the intestines.  What is intriguing is that within the colon, the incidence of cancer parallels the concentration of ammonia. ” Dr. Visek is quoted in The Golden Seven Plus One, by Dr. C. Samuel West, as saying, “Ammonia, which is produced in great amounts as a by-product of meat metabolism, is highly carcinogenic and can cause cancer development. ”And meat in any form is not good for humans.  We do not have a digestive system designed to assimilate protein from flesh: We do not have the teeth of a carnivore nor the saliva.  Our alkaline saliva is designed to digest complex carbohydrates from plant food, whereas saliva of a carnivore is so acidic that it can actually dissolve bones.  The digestive tracts of carnivores are short, about three times the length of their torso, allowing quick elimination of decomposing and putrefying flesh.

All herbivores have long intestines, 8 to 12 times the length of their torso, to provide a long transit time to digest and extract the nutrients from plant foods.  When you consider the health problems caused by consuming too much indigestible (cooked) protein, it should drive home the point that our body is a living organism made up of living cells and protein composes 15 percent of our body, therefore the protein we take in should be living rather than dead.  Hemp protein is a living plant protein which contains all 20 known Amino Acids including the 9 essential Amino Acids (EAAs) our bodies cannot produce.

When pressed and milled, the result is the perfect high performance vegetarian whole food which may be used in place of all protein sources or supplements.  Proteins are considered complete when they contain all 9 essential Amino Acids in a sufficient quantity and ratio to meet the body’s needs.  Hemp seeds contain an adequate supply of these high quality proteins (EAAs) for a well balanced diet.  In fact, hemp Protein is not only very high in fiber, but is unique in the plant kingdom for its perfect balance of protein, fiber and carbohydrates, making it easy to substitute into any type of diet.

A live protein concentrate, hemp protein is loaded with what your body needs, including all 9-10 essential Amino Acids, Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, enzymes, natural anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals and fibre.

Hemp protein is free of the tryspin inhibitors which block protein absorption and free of oligosaccharides found in soy, which cause stomach upset and gas.  Soybeans contain a higher total percentage of protein, but these are complex proteins that many people find difficult to digest.  An important aspect of hemp seed protein is a high content of arginine (123 mg/g protein) and histidine (27 mg/g protein), both of which are important for growth during childhood and of the sulfur-containing Amino Acids methionine (23 mg/g protein) and cysteine (16 mg/g protein), which are needed for proper enzyme formation.

Cysteine’s importance is related to the presence of a sulfur-containing thiol group in its side chain.  This group participates in the catalytic reactions of certain enzymes, such as that of papain.  Methionine is required because it assists in the breakdown of fats and thereby prevents the build-up of fat in the arteries, as well as assisting with the digestive system and removing heavy metals from the body since it can be converted to cysteine, which is a precursor to gluthione, which is of prime importance in detoxifying the liver.  The Amino Acid methionine is also a great antioxidant as the sulfur it supplies inactivates free radicals.

It may also be used to treat depression, arthritis pain as well as chronic liver disease – although these claims are still under investigation.  Some studies have also indicated that methionine mightalso improve memory recall.  Approximately 65% of the protein in hemp seeds is made up Edestin and is found only in hemp seed.

“Edistins (also spelled edestine) are plant globulins and are classified as globular proteins.  Globulins perform many enzymatic functions within the plasma itself.  The human body uses globulin proteins to make antibodies that attack infecting agents that invade the body. ”Edestin aids digestion, is relatively phosphorus-free and considered the backbone of the cell’s DNA.

The other one third of hemp seed protein is Albumin, another high quality globulin protein similar to that found in egg whites.  In addition to being an excellent protein source, hemp powder can also be used as a quick and convenient blood sugar stabilizer because of the high fiber content which will again help in weight loss.

Consuming Hemp Protein Immediately before and after Workout Helps Build Muscle

According to 2 new studies in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, consuming 25 grams of protein immediately before and after a workout greatly improves the body’s ability to build muscle.

The studies noted that muscle-building is mainly due to the Amino acid Leucine, which is especially high in Hemp Seed Protein.

Hemp Fact of the Day :

hemp-boat1This 78-foot boat known as the Earthrace was built in New Zealand and is valued at $3 million.

It runs on 100% biodiesel fuel and has floors and instrument panels made from hemp-based composite.

The boat recently completed a carbon-neutral tour of the world in 60 days and 23 hours, breaking the previous world record by 14 days.

Hemp Fact of the Day :

HempNotTreesHemp produces more pulp per acre than timber on a sustainable basis and can be used for every quality of paper.

Hemp paper manufacturing can reduce waste water contamination.

Hemp’s low lignin content reduces the need for acids used in pulping and its creamy color lends itself to environmentally-friendly bleaching instead of harsh chlorine compounds. Less bleaching results in less dioxin and fewer chemical by-products.
