Hemp Has It All

Hemp has often been classified as one of nature’s most perfect foods.  For a small seed, it certainly packs a big punch.  So what exactly makes this superfood so amazing?  Well, let’s start by looking at six of its unique characteristics.

1.  Hemp seeds contain about forty-four percent oil - eighty percent of which is polyunsaturated and with very high levels of essential fatty acids (EFAs) in desirable ratios.  In fact, hempseed oils naturally have the most desirable balances of omega 6 and omega 3 fatty acids for human health (3:1).  In addition, they are the only seed with the essential fatty acid gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) and being a plant food, they are naturally devoid of cholesterol.

2.  The profile of hemp seed protein makes it even more unique.  Containing approximately thirty-three percent protein, it not only contains all the essential amino acids but sixty-five percent of it is globulin edistin and it also contains albumin making it easily digestible and in readily available form.  

3. Hemp seeds are powerhouses of dietary fiber, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals such as: calcium, vitamin D, vitamin B, vitamin E, iron, magnesium, zinc, copper, manganese and phosphorus.

4. Hemp is jam packed with chlorophyll, which provide their green color.  Chlorophyll is very alkalizing and, for the purposes of alkaline living alone, is a welcome addition to the diet.  However, not only does chlorophyll help to combat acidity and to normalize your body’s pH, but it also helps to cleanse, heal and detoxify the body.

5.  Hemp seeds are rich in enzymes.  Not only are hemp seeds easily digestible, highly alkalizing, and nutrient dense but, because it delivers all of this in its natural and raw state, we get the benefit of its live, intact enzymes, which aid in digestion.

6.  Hemp is a highly sustainable crop.  It is a fast growing dense weed and does not require the use of pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides or other chemicals, hence it is better for human consumption and for our planet.  Just to clarify; hemp seeds are not to be confused with marijuana, as it does not contain THC, which has a psychoactive effect on the nervous system.

Hemp seeds can easily be added to cereals, yogurt, oatmeal, granola, salads, spreads, and baked goods or simply eaten alone.  Hemp seeds and hemp powders are also a great addition to shakes and smoothies.

When buying hemp seeds, ensure that they are 100% raw organic and keep them in a refrigerator to preserve the nutritious oils that they contain after opening.
