This delicious little nut contains all the essential amino acids and essential fatty acids that we need to maintain healthy human life. No other plant source has this nutrition in such an easily digestible form and perfect ratio to meet our nutritional needs. Plus, they are high in omega-3, omega-6, anti-oxidants, fiber, iron, vitamin E, and vitamin A. Now that is a potent seed!
What’s more, hemp seed is a powerful source of vegetarian protein – and its protein content is filled with globulin edistin – which is an immune system activator. In fact, it has been said that those suffering from immune deficiency diseases could be greatly aided, if not healed, by the consumption of hemp seed. Forget those colds my friends!
Other extraordinary benefits of hemp seed include the ability to fend off toxins and the protection of our bloodstream, tissues, cells, skin, organs… basically the whole body. It has also been shown to lower cholesterol and high blood pressure.
So how can you get these superstar seeds into your body? Fortunately they are delicious, and can be added to virtually any foods to enhance flavor, texture and overall goodness. Top your salads, add to smoothies, get creative with salad dressings, or create your own healthy baked goods with hemp seeds.
One quick and easy snack that I love is mashed avocado on rice crackers with a healthy covering of hemp seeds on top. Yum!
