Benefits of Hemp as Food
In spite of the colorful history of this plant, there are many environmental benefits associated with the ease and speed with which it grows. Hemp has the potential to replace many textiles, paper products, building materials and fuels that are damaging to the environment. There are many different products that can be derived from industrial hemp; its role as a food source is one of the most exciting, due to the many health benefits that have recently been discovered.
- High in Plant Based Protein – The slow moving protein provided by hemp helps keep blood sugar regulated and aids in keeping you feeling more satisfied after a meal.
- High in Omega 3 & 6 Fatty Acids – Due to the pollution in our oceans and how it has negatively impacted fish, finding a plant based source of important Omega fatty acids is essential. Omega fatty acids provide great benefits as they reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, maintain bone health and regulate metabolism.
- Contains Essential Amino Acids – The building blocks of all your muscles, cells, tissues and organs need to have adequate essential amino acids available to help ward off age-related diseases like Alzheimer’s.
Known to be one of the most, if not the most, nutritional and beneficial seeds on the planet, hemp is a good source of protein, amino acids, omega fatty acids, as well as magnesium, potassium and fiber. It also contains many of the vitamins your body needs to function and to stay healthy.
