WHY CONSUME HEMP SEED?

It’s simple: protein and omegas!

Hemp foods are rich in protein (36%!) and have all 10 essential amino acids. If that wasn’t enough, hemp seeds also contain magnesium, fiber, iron, zinc, and phosphorous.

They also contain omega-3, omega-6, stearidonic acid (SDA), and the rare omega-6 Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA). What’s so great about GLA? Well, GLA has been shown to help with cholesterol levels, inflammation, skin and hair health, balancing hormones, and general heart health.

  • Excellent 3:1 balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which promotes cardiovascular health.
  • High in gamma linolenic acid (GLA), an essential omega-6 fatty acid found in borage oil and egg yolks that has been proven to naturally balance hormones.
  • A perfect protein that contains all 20 amino acids, but also each of the 9 essential amino acids that our bodies cannot produce.
  • Rich in soluble and un-soluble fiber which naturally cleanses the colon and reduces sugar cravings.

Because it’s an omega-6 fatty acid, people get tripped up because we’ve been told ad nauseam that omega-6 fatty acids are bad for us and that an imbalanced omega-3/6 ratio is one of leading causes of disease in America today. Granted, most people don’t consume enough omega-3’s, but that’s not because naturally occurring omega-6s are bad for you.

The problem is that Americans consume too many processed and fast foods made with commercial vegetable oils, which are laden with omega-6’s. If everyone only ate fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds no one would ever have an omega-3/6 ratio out of whack.  What’s the bottom line? You should boost your natural omega-3 intake, limit your vegetable oil consumption and enhance your omega-6’s with GLA-rich foods like hemp seeds.
