For thousands years, hemp seeds have been consumed daily by millions of people. The Persians called it “royal seed.” In China, they were one of the main “grains” with wheat, millet, beans, and rice.
Looking closer, we understand that hemp provides us with ideal nutrition. Between 20% and 30% of complete proteins easy to assimilate, 30% of good fat and 35% of fibers. The remain consists of a wide variety of vitamins and minerals such as iron, zinc, magnesium. Only few foods offer such rich nutrition.
The hemp seeds contain no phytocannabinoid (THC, CBD, etc).
Hemp seeds contain everything you need to kick start your day.
An exceptional plant protein
Proteins are important for building, maintaining and repairing the tissues and organs of our body.
Hemp seeds are some of the most complete protein sources. They contain the twenty amino acids that our body needs to stay healthy but also the nine essential amino acids that our body does not produce itself. Furthermore, hemp protein does not contain trypsin inhibitors that impede proper digestion of proteins and make the pancreas tired.
An ideal ratio of essential fatty acids
The oil of hemp seed provides us with a perfect ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 (3: 1), essential for a balanced mental and physical health.
These fatty acids are essential because the body does not produce them by itself. Our body needs them to regulate the blood pressure, to maintain the hormonal balance and the good functioning of the arteries, the heart, and the brain, to reinforce the immune system and to reduce cholesterol.
Soluble and insoluble fiber
Hemp seeds are an excellent source of dietary fiber, essential for the proper functioning of intestinal transit. They play an essential role to improve the circulation of food in the digestive system and facilitate colonic irrigation. At the same time, they contribute to a feeling of satiety and prevent overeating. Dietary fiber is particularly useful for those who suffer from constipation or irregular bowel movement.
