Hemp Power Packs Your Day
Part of the cannibus sativa family, hemp has the most concentrated balance of proteins, essential fats, vitamins, fiber, calcium and enzymes you will find. The edible, seed has a tasty, nutlike quality and can be used in smoothies, meatloaf, burgers, sandwiches, eggs, cereal and almost any recipe. Baking and cooking do not diminish its value.
Think of hemp seeds as power packing your day. While much of what you eat is lacking in nutrient value, hemp is one great big gift to your body. The benefits are enormous.
The Healing Powers of Hemp
Plan on your body saying thank you with improved circulation and reduced inflammation. If you are chronically ill or have arthritis, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, cardio vascular disease, acne, eczema, psoriasis, diabetes, intestinal problems, obesity, prostate problems, Celiac Disease, depression or hyperactivity disorders, look for hemp to assist. It loads the body with back up and support. Generally you can look toward improving the quality of life with hemp.
Each hemp seed, or heart, is about 1/2 oil and 1/3 protein, which is more digestible than meat, eggs or dairy. There are no known allergies to hemp and it has not been assaulted by the food industry or growers.
Hemp provides Omega-3 and Omega-6 oils. Having a healthy balance of these oils and essential fatty acids is what forms every membrane of every one of the billions of cells in the body. All you have to do is eat them and the work is done for you.
Amino acids that you hopefully pick up here and there throughout the day are all in hemp. Every amino acid you need is delivered in each tiny seed along with the rarely found Gamma Linolenic Acid, GLA, which cannot be made by the body.
The raw seed or heart is power packed. Four tablespoons offers 15 grams of protein, 11.4 grams of omega 6, 3.6 grams of omega 3, 2.5 grams fiber, 4.5 grams carbohydrate, 2 mg iron, 31 mg calcium, 3.8mg sodium, 3.8mg vitamin E and vitamins D, C, B6, B2, B1 and A.
When your body is completely nourished and stocked with what it needs to function perfectly, cravings for sugar stop. Your body won’t need that extra boost that sugar calories provide because it will be well fed and balanced. You won’t be searching for sources of white flour, starches or refined sugars throughout the day.
Hemp has been cultivated for hundreds of years. It’s benefits are endless, yet it is on the fringe of most diets. We don’t think of it and don’t include it as a essential part of the day. Think of it as feeding your body one of the world’s perfect foods and healing it at the cellular level.
Hemp is part of the family of cannibus that includes marijuana. It is legal, has no psychoactive qualities and, like marijuana, provides many healing benefits to the body.
