Why you need to be consuming hemp in 2019

Drink / 25 June 2019

It’s time to put hemp on your health radar + win the ultimate Hello Hemp prize pack valued at $120.

Superfoods continue to grab the attention of both the health conscious and curious and while we’ve all heard of chia, cacao, matcha and quinoa, what about hemp? Legalised in Australia only relatively recently in November 2017, this underdog of the superfood universe is full of antioxidants, omega 3 & 6, vitamin E, calcium, iron and zinc. Hemp seeds are also a complete source of vegan protein, containing all 9 essential amino acids. Not only can hemp products assist with vital muscle regeneration, but also with energy production, digestion and so much more.

Hello Hemp, Melbourne-based creators and distributors of innovative hemp blends and coffee, are challenging the traditional drinks game with their range of naturally high protein, low sugar hot chocolate, matcha and latté powders. For the caffeine cravers, they also produce 100% organic hemp seed coffee, along with totally recyclable and biodegradable hemp coffee capsules and hemp filter blend. Bursting with natural goodness, you can check out Hello Hemp’s full range of products here.

If you’d like to help support Hello Hemp, you can make a pre-order through the crowdfunding platform on Pozible. In exchange for your support, you can expect exclusive access to the new product range. To pre-order, click here.
