Hemp Seeds and The Amazing Health Benefits for You
Raw shelled hemp seed is one of nature’s perfect foods – a Super Food. This is one of the most potent foods available, supporting optimal health and well being, for life. Raw hemp provides a broad spectrum of health benefits, including: weight loss, increased and sustained energy, rapid recovery from disease or injury, lowered cholesterol and blood pressure, reduced inflammation, improvement in circulation and immune system as well as natural blood sugar control.
Hemp seeds are the perfect 1/3 oil and 1/4 protein for cellular health and energy
-Hemp seeds contain all the essential amino acids and essential fatty acids vital for optimal health. Hemp Protein contains all 20 Amino Acids including the 9 Essential Amino Acids. There are 9 essential amino acids that your body can not produce on its own and hemp has them all. If you don’t consume foods rich in these essential amino acids, your health will be compromised. Amino acids work as a building block of proteins. Essential amino acids (contained in hemp) are the most digestible in the world. Hemp also contains vitamin A, E and D, and many B vitamins, sodium, calcium, dietary fiber and iron.
-Hemp Seeds are one of the best vegetable sources of protein. The proteins contained in hemp are similar to proteins in the human body. Thus, hemp provides the right amount of amino acids to help our bodies produce protein. Hemp protein consists of globulins (edestin) and albumin. Approximately 65% of the protein in hemp seeds is made up of the globulin protein Edestin and is found only in hemp seeds.
-Hemp is one of the world’s most potent natural sources of magnesium. Around 75% of people in America are Magnesium deficient. Being one of the most vital minerals, it is responsible for over 300 different biochemical reactions which are essential for your body to function properly. 1/2 cup of hemp seeds contains 92% of your daily value of magnesium.
-Hemp contains the perfect ratio of omega fatty acids; three omega3 to 1-omega6. Omega-6 is only beneficial for our bodies if the ratio of Omega-6 and Omega-3 is 3 to 1. As a nation, we do not consume enough of these. The current ratio in America is at 50:1.
Hemp seeds have a very mild, nutty flavor. As with the other seeds, they’re good in hot or cold cereals, smoothies, and soups, or just sprinkled on salads, casseroles, noodle dishes, or cooked grains. Hemp oil has a strong “grassy” flavor that, though an acquired taste, affords the same benefits and can be used in place of olive oil in cold dishes like salads, but not for cooking.
