* Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and provide our bodies with the essential nutrients to grow muscle tissue, among other bodily requirements. There are 22 amino acids, 11 of them are considered essential. That is, the body cannot create these on their own. Hemp happens to be one of the best sources of amino acids, a whole food, for humans.

Many folks inadvertently believe that one must consume protein to make protein in the body. However, studies and experience show that the body must convert the protein into a useable form first in attempt to absorb any useable amino acids. Thus, requiring excess energy to do this conversion and taking away from one's energy reserves. In consuming a useable amino acid, the body goes to work right away, efficiently absorbing the amino acids (energy) and allowing the bodily functions to work normally.

One can see the efficiency then of eating healthier whole food choices (amino acid foods) rather than a perceived "protein".
