The AMINO ANIMO Hemp Protein is an organic protein powder with high protein content and bioavailability, containing all the necessary amino acids. Hemp protein is a very good source of glutamic acid and arginine that contribute to energy increase, proper immune system function, and cardiovascular health. It shows an increased profile of unsaturated fatty acids, minerals and trace elements. A shake or smoothie immediately offers a high amount of proteins and fibers, while giving a pleasant feeling of fullness.
• Energy increase
• Cardiovascular health strengthening
• Proper immune system functioning
• Anti-oxidative, anti-hypertensive and anti-inflammatory effect
• All essential amino acids
• High content of glutamic acid and arginine
• High content of unsaturated fatty acids, fibers, minerals and trace elements
In the context of a balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle.
The AMINO ANIMO Hemp Protein contains beneficial unsaturated fatty acids, namely omega-3, 6 and 9, which promote cardiovascular health by altering the blood serum lipid profile and decreasing cholesterol. It is considered a rich source of minerals and trace elements, that protect the human body from oxidative damage, while it contains dietary fibers, that promote gut health.
Hemp protein is produced from the seeds of the Cannabis sativa plant. It is characterized by high digestibility and bioavailability. It is a viable and complete, plant-based protein source, containing all amino acids required by humans. Glutamic acid and arginine are the most abundant amino acids of hemp protein.
Glutamic acid is an important neurotransmitter that contributes to the biosynthesis of biologically active peptides. In addition, it is an energy supplier through its metabolism in the central nervous system, while it is necessary for the biosynthesis of glutathione, a vital antioxidant compound contributing to the proper functioning of the immune system.
Arginine has beneficial cardiovascular properties. It is a dietary precursor for the formation of nitric oxide (NO), which is very important for cardiovascular health. Changes in arginine levels are important in terms of cardiometabolic risk and healthy functioning of the body.
Hemp protein reportedly regulates postprandial blood glucose response and insulin, while data support that it is hypoallergic because it is less possible to cause allergic symptoms compared to other proteins.
Studies have shown that hemp protein has an antioxidant action by inhibiting oxidative stress, thanks to the bioactive peptides it contains. Hemp protein provides anti-hypertensive protection as an ACE-inhibitor by preventing the increase of blood pressure, and has an anti-inflammatory ability by inhibiting several inflammatory reactions related to various signaling pathways, such as that of NF-κB, the deregulation of which causes, among others, disruption of the proper immune response in inflammatory conditions.
• Add 1 or 2 scoops of AMINO ANIMO organic protein, along with fruits and vegetables, to your smoothie.
• Alternatively, replace a part of the solids (flour, oats) of your favorite recipe (salty or sweet) with AMINO ANIMO organic protein for increased nutritional value.

The amount of protein you need to intake on a daily basis differs throughout the course of life, as it depends on gender, age, individual goals, duration and intensity of exercise. To be able to calculate the recommended daily protein intake for your lifestyle, just focus on the level of physical activity. So, the more athletic you are, the more your protein needs increase.
If you follow a sedentary lifestyle, the recommended daily protein intake is estimated at 0.8 grams per kilogram of body weight. On the other hand, if you exercise regularly for health and well-being purposes, your daily intake is adjusted to 1.0 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight, with emphasis on the quality of the protein you choose.
Athletes and those who follow a high-intensity exercise schedule at a moderate frequency (2-3 hours per day, 5-6 times per week), the recommended daily protein intake ranges from 1.0 to 1.5 grams per kilogram of body weight. Finally, athletes who are on a high-intensity exercise program at high frequency (1-2 workouts per day, 3-6 hours per day, 5-6 times per week), the daily intake is adjusted to 1.5-2.0 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight.
Whichever of the above categories you belong to, it would be ideal to divide your protein into several meals, instead of consuming it all at once. This way you will achieve better satiety and therefore you will not feel constantly hungry. For example, you can eat beans at lunch and then add organic rice protein powder to your afternoon smoothie. These 2 proteins are called complementary, as they form a complete amino acid profile. The same result is achieved by combining a meal with spinach and organic almond protein powder.
