My Rating: 10 out of 10
Many more of our members and visitors are now actively looking for better quality, plant-based protein supplements, so I decided to try a number of different products beyond the ones’ I’ve already used for myself. And given our focus on hemp-based products at Cannabis Animus, I specifically wanted to identify a high-quality hemp protein powder that I would recommend for our members and visitors at a more competitive price.
For my daily supplementation, I’ve chosen this highly digestible, gluten-free, and non-GMO hemp seed protein powder from Foods Alive for my own use going forward. This product contains 7 grams of high-quality plant protein per serving, and contains all 9 essential amino acids that the human body requires adequate amounts.
Protein from hemp seeds is actually a preferred source of natural fiber most importantly it contains 3, 6, and 9 Omega fatty acids sourced from non-GMO farms in Canada.
A natural, cold-pressed manufacturing process is used which is free of hexane and never exposing the product to heat.
Leading biochemists, researchers, and medical doctors alike agree that the hemp plant (Cannabis) is considered to be one of the most nutritious food sources on plant Earth. For all the right reasons, organic hemp seed protein is the hands-down winner in the plant protein category, and understandably in high demand that is growing at a very rapid rate.

As summarized above, this hemp protein powder from Foods Alive has many health benefits compared to soy, wheat, or other common forms of plant protein. Hemp seed proteins are largely edestin and albumin. Technically speaking, it’s a “nut” and shares common nutritional characteristics – just on a higher level. Higher than chia seeds or quinoa for example.
Biochemistry shows that hemp seeds contain all 9 essential amino acids, and possess the ideal 3:1 ratio of Omega 6 (linolenic acid) to Omega 3 (alpha-linolenic acid) fatty acids. Additionally, gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) and stearidonic acid (SDA) are included in the mix. These are considered “essential fatty acids” (EFAs) because the human body cannot make them. Essential amino acids must be derived from our food intake and readily digested.
Hemp protein powder is a complete protein that contains over 20 amino acids which are the building blocks of protein itself. Without the appropriate amount of protein, our muscles, bone, organs, and other tissues will not be healthy and one’s metabolism will slow and store fat instead of burning it.
How Much Should I Take?
Nutritionists suggest that adults need 0.38 grams of protein per pound of body weight daily. However, if you are overweight, that much may be excessive. Consult your nutritionist if you are overweight, and if you are underweight, same recommendation applies.
You may need more than the ratio for “average weight” folks depending on your overall medical condition, but for those of you who want to lose fat, your physician will definitely support your new focus on plant-based protein sources as opposed to what you’ve been doing.
If you exercise daily or are an athlete, you will need more than this ratio if you seek increased muscle mass and require muscle recovery after exercise or events. According to the National Association of Sports Nutrition, you will require 0.9 grams per pound of body weight daily.
For optimal post-exercise, muscle rebuilding and recovery, my trainer recommends 4-6 tablespoons of Foods Alive Hemp Protein Powder in a ‘shake’ beverage immediately following workouts.
Your Heart – Fiber Connection
Most of us are aware that heart disease is the #1 cause of death in the United States, and untold billions are made on the sale of products addressing the problem. The underlying biological and chemical reasons for this sad state of affairs has been documented in the current, average American diet.
It’s been determined by numerous scientific studies, most Americans have an “unbalanced” ratio of omega-6 to omega-3. Specifically they are low in omega-3 essential fatty acid which causes increased inflammation in the human body.
Chronic inflammation conditions result in too many unnecessary (and most) medical conditions to list which is why so many people now take CBD every day! Chronic neurological diseases are also caused by their own inflamed bodies… much of which can and does get corrected by many different kinds of hemp-based products .
Nutrition Support and “Gut Health”
As previously noted, hemp seeds contain many nutritional benefits beyond high fiber and high protein content. They contain important unsaturated fats (good fat) that are essential for cardiovascular health (heart/blood). Hemp seeds also contain critical minerals the body needs every day like calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, and zinc.
Within the first hour reading, the ‘light bulbs’ will have haven been lit, and you will want to continue learning why your gut health should likely be your primary concern and focus. Without that understanding, you will never achieve your health objectives. It’s really easy (and inexpensive) to achieve once you understand it.
Helpful Recipe Suggestions:
There are so many recipes for nutritional smoothie drinks that I’m not going to waste time here. But one thing I want to emphasize is that unless you are an athlete, or otherwise maintain a healthy body mass ratio of muscle to fat, please stay away from the tendency to add too much fruit to your smoothies or fruit juices to your drinks.
Use conservatively, just enough to ‘flavor’ your drink or shake. Even fresh fruits and natural, fresh-pressed fruit juice contains a lot of sugar! For example, this photo shows what looks like too much fruit added. It should have a more dull color.
So, unless you can metabolize sugar like a young athlete, please don’t go there. It’s what screws everything up! Too much Sugar = Bad.
For you chef’s and bakers: Substitute 25% of your flour contents with Foods Alive Hemp Protein Powder in your recipes. Not only better tasting due to the mild, nutty flavor, it provides some actual food value instead of low quality, gluten rich bleached flour. Try it, and tell your customers about it!
Given the increased awareness and legalization of Cannabis as a medicine (i.e. Sativex (THC), Epidiolex (CBD) hemp protein powder has become more widely publicized, marketed, and consumed.
It is derived from the plant’s seed itself and does not contain any THC whatsoever. So it is completely safe, non-addictive, and Foods Alive Hemp Protein Powder will not negatively impact a drug test.
I hope you can now realize why hemp protein powder derived from non-GMO, cold-processed hemp seed hearts is the best recommendation I can give our (free) members and visitors for immediately improving your gut health.
This simple addition to your daily health regimen will literally enable all the other products and foods you consume. At 80% soluble fiber levels, this translates to slowing digestion while attracting life-giving water to the digestive process.
Its 20% insoluble fiber will help cleanse the colon wall and facilitate proper stool consistency while preventing watery elimination as well as its opposite – constipation.
As an Asian toxicologist friend reminds me with a smile, “You can see your ‘daily guide’ each morning!”
