What You Need to Know About the Benefits of Hemp Protein

As pet parents, we know you want to give your pup everything they need to grow strong and live a healthy, active life. Protein is an important part of their diet which can help accomplish this. However, there are many sources of protein you can feed your furry friend.

Hemp protein for dogs can be an excellent source of protein to keep your loyal companion healthy and strong. Hemp protein can even be found in convenient, grab-and-go healthy dog supplements like our Pet Releaf Boom Bars. The hemp protein we use in our supplement bars is actually sourced from our joint-venture USDA Certified Organic Hemp Farm!

Hemp Protein Benefits For Pets

Hemp is a high-quality, vegan protein that is high in fiber and contains healthy fats and minerals. It is made by pressing hemp seeds to remove most of the oil and grinding the seeds into a fine powder. The proteins inside of this powder are made up of amino acids which can provide support to numerous areas of the body. Although there are a total of 20 amino acids that can contribute to the body, only 9 are considered essential. Hemp protein is made up of all 9 essential amino acids! Since the essential amino acids cannot be made naturally in your dog’s body, it’s important to incorporate them into your dog’s everyday life to support overall wellness! 

Hemp seeds are also a source of gamma-Linolenic acid (GLA). GLA is a polyunsaturated fatty acid that has shown strong anti-inflammatory effects in animal studies. 

When it comes to fiber, plant protein powders, such as rice, pea, and soy, tend to be highly processed and therefore, they typically don’t retain the fiber your dog should be getting. Hemp protein can be a great alternative and give your pup the fiber they need.

Along with fiber and protein, Hemp protein is a rich source of: 

  •   Calcium
  •   Magnesium
  •   Phosphorus
  •   Iron
  •   Zinc
  •   Copper
  •   Manganese
