Protein is extremely important for gym goers & body builders as it is key in aiding muscles to repair, recover and increase mass after training. It is also one of the main sources of energy when following a low carbohydrate diet, which many body builders follow as it aids in fat loss and can improve muscle definition.
GOOD Hemp Nutrition is the most balanced vegetable protein available. It is one of the plant proteins, which has a similar nutritional profile to milk, meat and eggs. This, plus the additional nutrients which Hemp has to offer, such as Omega 3 and dietary fibre, makes it the best protein powder for those who wish to build muscle.
When your objective is to build muscle tissue, your body requires 1,5g to 2g of high quality protein per pound of body weight to support healthy muscle development. The nutrient-dense, alkaline-forming nutrition found in GOOD hemp supplements is the best building material available for constructing strong muscle cells. Protein is a crucial component for muscle repair and building, so too are essential fatty acids (Omega-3 and Omega-6), vitamins, minerals, fibre, enzymes, probiotics, antioxidants and a host of other nutritional components - all found in GOOD hemp protein.

Hemp protein is easy to digest, unlike other sources of protein that have been associated with intestinal bloating and discomfort. Hemp seed has the highest content of globulin Edistin in the plant kingdom - the word Edistin comes from the Greek word ‘edestos’ which means edible. Edistin is considered by many to be the most easily digestible protein.
GOOD Gym Shake hemp protein is slow digesting, making it perfect to take before bedtime and between the meals. It's high protein content will make you feel fuller for longer.
HEMP is naturally rich in Essential Fatty Acids such as Omega-3. Essential fatty acids aid in the repair of muscles and Omega 3 is known to improve immune function in many different ways. Being deficient in EFAs and their metabolites will decrease protein synthesis and muscle repair due to lacking the needed materials. An EFA deficiency may also cause your body to try to “hold on to” your body fat because it senses it does not have all the materials/nutrients it needs. So if you do not have enough EFAs then you are not gaining muscle and progressing at the rate you could and your fat loss can become impeded.
You can also try our cold-pressed Hemp Seed Oil - GOOD OIL, as a rich natural source of Omega-3. Just one tablespoon provides 94% of the daily recommended allowance of Omega-3.
During the muscle-building phase, a total protein intake of 1.4 - 1.8 grams per kilogram body weight is recommended.
