Cleanse Organic exclusively recommends Tempt protein powder to participants of their program for a variety of reasons. For starters, “hemp seeds contain all the essential amino acids and essential fatty acids necessary to maintain healthy human life.” 1
This plant-based super food contains branched chained amino acids necessary for the repair and growth of lean body muscle mass. Rich in calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron and other minerals and vitamins, hemp seed is the ideal source of Omega-3 and Omega-6 Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) and naturally contain the Super Omega SDA† and GLA†. Also, abundant in soluble and insoluble fiber, hemp seed has a low glycemic index value. Yet, this simple seed, a super food, is unknown to many.
A vegetarian for many years, I seek nutrient dense plant based proteins and understand that proteins derived from plant foods (legumes, grains, and vegetables) tend to be limited in essential amino acids which is not the case with hemp. Hemp seed protein “resembles” a complete protein found in meat, milk & eggs containing 21 amino acids, including the 10 essential amino acids. Tempt is a high quality gluten free protein that is easily digested, absorbed and assimilated into the body which makes it a great nutritional source for everyone especially athletes.
As an Xterra triathlete and fitness coach, my husband loves the pre and post-recovery benefits of hemp protein. His favorite tempt smoothie is a simple recipe blending orange juice, ½ banana and TemptHemp protein. I love adding the high protein powder to my favorite muffin recipes as it is unflavored, not green or gritty and provides power-packed nutrition.
This super food is gluten-free, non-dairy, soy-free, tree nut-free, cholesterol-free, trans-fat free and astonishingly, has no known common allergens. Tempt is also kosher, vegan, and low in sodium. Th is amazing plant is a sustainable agricultural crop that is GMO free and grown without herbicides or pesticides which is extremely important to my family and me.
I hope you experience the powerful nutrition of Living Harvest’s Tempt hemp protein powders that are captured in three delicious varieties; organic original, vanilla spice and our high protein formula.
