Benefits of hemp foods

Hemp Seeds are incredibly nutriotious.  The hemp seeds have a nutty flavour and often called as hemp hearts. Hemp seeds contain over 30% fat. They are exceptionally rich in two essential fatty acids, linoleic acid (omega-6) and alpha-linolenic acid (omega-3).

Hemp seeds contain gamma-linolenic acid, which has been linked to several health benefits and are also great source of protein. 25% of their total calories are from high quality Hemp protien and this percentage is considerably greater than similar foods like Chia seeds or Flax Seeds which are also available with us.

Hemp seeds are also a great source of vitamin E and minerals, such as phosphorus, potassium, sodium, magnesium, sulfur, calcium, iron and zinc. Hemp seeds are consumed raw, cooked or roasted. Hemp seed oil is also very healthy and has been used as a food and medicine in China for at least 3,000 years.

Hemp Seeds May Reduce Your Risk of Heart Disease. The seeds contain high amounts of the amino acid arginine, which can produce nitric oxide in our body. Nitric oxide is a gas molecule can make our blood vessels dilate and relax which leads leading to lowered blood pressure and a reduced risk of heart disease. In a large study in over 13,000 people, increased arginine intake corresponded with decreased levels of C-reactive protein (CRP), an inflammation marker. High levels of CRP are linked to heart disease(Trusted Source). Hemp seeds can be caled as the biggest source of plan based protein.

Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), found in hemp seeds, produces prostaglandin E1, which reduces the effects of prolactin. Studies in women with PMS shown that, taking 1 gram of essential fatty acids — including 210 mg of GLA — per day resulted in a significant decrease in symptoms (Trusted Source) which in fact decreases the symtoms like breast pain and tenderness, depression, irritability and fluid retention associated with PMS.

Additionally, studies on animals have shown that hemp seeds or hemp seed oil may reduce blood pressure, decrease the risk of blood clot formation and help the heart recover after a heart attack.

Hemp Seeds and Oil May Benefit Skin Disorders. Studies shows that our immune system depends on the balance of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. Hemp seeds are a good source of polyunsaturated and essential fatty acids. They have about a 3:1 ratio of omega-6 to omega-3, which is considered in the optimal range. Studies have shown that giving hemp seed oil to people with eczema can improve blood levels of essential fatty acids. The oil may also relieve dry skin, improve itchiness and reduce the need for skin medication.

The Bottom Line

Though hemp seeds have only recently become popular in Australia and other western countries, they’re a staple food in many societies and provide excellent nutritional value. hey are very rich in healthy fats, high-quality protein and several minerals.

However, hemp seed shells may contain trace amounts of THC (< 0.3%), the active compound in marijuana. People who have been dependent on cannabis may want to avoid hemp seeds in any form.

Overall, hemp seeds are incredibly healthy. They may be one of the few superfoods worthy of their reputation.
