Organic Hemp Coffee is the delightful result of our perfected process of blending USDA-certified organic hemp protein powder with USDA-certified organic fair-trade specialty coffees from South and Central America.
The end result is a delicious, smooth full-flavored low acidity coffee with a nutty aftertaste. Why hemp? It's simple: protein and omegas! Hemp foods are rich in protein and have all 9 essential amino acids.
They also contain omega-3, omega-6, stearidonic acid (SDA), and the rare omega-6 Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA). What's so great about GLA? Well, GLA has been shown to help with cholesterol, inflammation, skin and hair health, balancing hormones, and general heart health. Plus if that wasn't enough, hemp foods also contain magnesium, fibre, iron, zinc, and phosphorous.

Science Behind This Product
Caffeine for Endurance. Caffeine can be used effectively as an ergogenic aid when taken in moderate doses, such as during sports when a small increase in endurance performance can lead to significant differences in placements as athletes are often separated by small margins.
Caffeine for Weight loss. A meta-analysis demonstrated that caffeine intake might promote weight, BMI, and body fat reduction.
Caffeine for Sports Focus. The intake of a low/moderate dose of caffeine before and/or during exercise can improve self-reported energy, mood, and cognitive functions, such as attention; it may also improve simple reaction time, choice reaction time, memory, or fatigue, however, this may depend on the research protocols.
Hemp and Liver Health. The current study suggests the plausible antioxidant and anti-inflammatory role of hempseed lipid fractions (HEMP) in alleviating pathophysiological conditions, including fatty liver disease, where oxidative stress and inflammation are key mediators.
Hemp Against Fatigue. Hempseed protein could have the ability to antifatigue and improve the immunomodulation effect in mice.
Hemp for Cardio. Hempseed has an excellent content of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. These compounds have beneficial effects on our cardiovascular health.
Hemp Allergenicity. Recently, hemp seeds and derived oil have started to be used in various food products. Hemp-based food products are considered less allergenic than those from other edible seeds.
Hemp for Cholesterol. A current study demonstrates that the anti-hypercholesterolemic effects of hempseed are mediated through redox-sensitive modulation of inflammatory pathways.
