Hemp Protein

Before anyone says “use your search button dimpshit”, I know this has been discussed before. Just thought I would give this link and see what you guys thought. A friend of mine uses this stuff and emailed me the link. I admit, I didn’t read the whole “article”, but I got the point.

Nice sales letter. Come on, give us a break!

I’d say hemp protein would be a possible alternative that vegetarians may want to consider since they sometimes have trouble getting enough protein.

However, if someone is thinking about trying hemp protein, I’d strongly suggest that they don’t reward some asswad with a pure smarm sales page… go find it somewhere else.

Ok, well, I agree, but I just wanted to see what people would say before I shared my opinion. Pretty much seems like a joke to me.

More and more bodybuilders are stopping their careers because of intestinal toxemia. They?ve got massive deposits of whey protein packed into their intestinal tract, which leaves a nice black layer of sludge and reduces the possibility of getting protein into your body - where you need it. If it?s in your intestine, it?s not in your muscles.

Hemp Protein can be an good alternative to soy for Vegan bodybuilders. It’s also high in omega 3 fatty acids. It’s a healthy protein supplement that can be used for people who don’t drink whey, and/or eat meat.
Thats it. It’s not going to give you 20 pounds of muscle over night.

All I was thinking when I was reading that was “don’t tell me…show me”. I need a much more scientific article before I give it any thought.

I can’t believe anyone got past the first paragraph of that thing… even alluding to it as an “article” is completely inappropriate.

Ok, good point, but that was kind of the point of putting it in quotations.

Woah that article is from the future!

It must be true!
