Hemp (cannabis sativa) contains high amounts of protein (about 50%), essential fatty acids, antioxidants, chlorophyll, amino acids, Vitamin E, magnesium, and iron. It also contains Omega 6 and Omega 3 fatty acids, which are known to play a crucial role in brain functioning, growth and development. Having a diet that is low in Omega-3 has been linked to inflammatory disorders among other chronic diseases. Hemp seeds and powders are also very high in fiber, which plays a crucial role in moving waste through the intestines.
Hemp seeds are a high, whole-food protein source containing all nine essential amino acids. They also include essential fats, Gamma Linoleic Acid (GLA), fiber, iron, zinc, carotene, B-Vitamins (1, 2, and 6), Vitamin D, Vitamin E, calcium, copper, potassium, chlorophyll, enzymes and more.
Hemp products are sustainable, eco-friendly whole-foods, that are a nutritional powerhouse. Hemp seeds can be eaten by those unable to tolerate nuts, gluten, and lactose.
