It contains easy to digest protein that the body can rapidly absorb and utilize as building blocks for our own protein to facilitate muscle growth, amongst other things. This isn’t merely important for exercise, body-building and mass gain purposes as muscles performing grueling physical labor also require a supply of good quality protein and this is also an important consider in the case of malnutrition. There are numerous proven benefits of diets rich in fiber and hemp seed protein can contribute to daily fiber intake.
