Health Benefits and Nutrition info
Hemp seeds are considered allergy-free more than any other seed. They contain the perfect balance of essential amino acids for sustaining good health and provide a healthy dose of protein, omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, antioxidants and minerals to the body. Hemp seeds are one of the best sources of plant-based protein and have a wide variety of health benefits, including their ability to stimulate digestion, build muscle mass, treat anemia, and aid in weight loss. Their healthy omega-3 fatty acids protect against cardiovascular disease and Alzheimer’s disease. Hemp seeds also help to stimulate metabolic activity, prevent various cancers, boost the immune system, reduce symptoms of menopause and menstruation, improve skin and hair health, and build stronger bones.
Hemp seeds, or hemp hearts, are the seeds of the hemp plant, Cannabis sativa. Technically a nut, these small, crunchy seeds are safe to consume and contain only traces of the chemical, called THC, the primary psychoactive compound in cannabis which is known to cause euphoria. These seeds have a soft, creamy filling which has a mild, nutty flavor and must by no means be confused with marijuana.
The hemp plant is one of the fastest growing plants and was one of the first plants to be spun into usable fiber 10,000 years ago. It is eco-friendly as it can even be grown without deadly herbicides and pesticides
