The Styrian company A-WARE has set itself the goal of using the robust and resistant hemp plant as food. For all those who want to draw pure strength from nature, the hemp plant is the number one insider tip!
Why hemp protein?
"Hemp protein is so rich in nutrients that a person could live on hemp protein alone for months without the risk of suffering deficiency symptoms" says Patrick Thurner, MD. And no matter whether young or old: everyone needs protein! According to scientific findings, about 1.2g - 2g per kilogram of body weight should be supplied daily. The majority of our society obtains this high proportion of protein from animal sources. However, the excess of animal protein easily leads to over-acidification of the body and strains the digestive tract. To counteract this, it is recommended to use vegetable protein. Because: The hemp nut is not only alkaline, but also very easy to digest, contains many fibres and thus supports a balanced acid-base balance.
Vitality, well-being and increased performance
Nature is our best partner. Saint Charles and A-Ware agree on that! And the hemp plant is also a hot tip for athletes. Because in addition to an optimal amino acid composition, hemp protein also has fibre, essential fatty acids (omega 3+6), as well as large amounts of minerals, trace elements and vitamins. What more could an athlete's heart desire?
