Nutritional Benefits of Hemp

Do you know what? Hemp is not marijuana. I did a thorough extensive search to find out this. To make matters clear marijuana and hemp are different varieties of the same species of plant. Hemp has a minimal amount of 1% of the psychotrophic chemical THC whereas, marijuana is hemp’s THC rich cousin.

Having got cleared about the main issue let us move towards the health benefits of hemp. The hemp seeds can be eaten as such, grounded, sprouted, made into hemp milk made as tea and can be used in baking. It is treasure trove of nutrients. It contains essential fatty acids such as linoleic acid, omega 3 fatty acids and omega 6 fatty acids. The proteins present in hemp contain all the essential 21 amino acids and that includes the nine essential amino acids which the human body cannot produce.
Hemp is a very good source of protein for vegetarians. It does not cause any food allergy. Even people who have the glucose and lactose intolerance can enjoy hemp foods. Hemp protein is easily digestible because it is not made of complex sugars which lead to flatulence if not properly digested.

Hemp is good for your heart because the essential fatty acids in hemp prevent plaque formation in arteries and reduces blood pressure. It is rich in antioxidants and promotes healthy skin and a sharp mind. It suppresses the appetite naturally and hence results in weight loss. Due to its high antioxidant content it prevents cancer and is a must for diabetic patients or the ones at risk.

Hemp seed milk is a creamy and nutty beverage. It does not contain THC. Instead it contains essential fatty acids, minerals and vitamins. The hemp milk is easily digestible and does not cause any allergic reactions. Hope you have enough evidence to give hemp a try. The hemp oil has good nutritional benefits and can be included in your way of cooking. It is rich in essential fatty acids. Cold pressed and unrefined hemp seed oil is dark green in color and has a nutty flavor. Refined hemp seed oil does not contain the natural antioxidants and vitamins.

As the year draws to a close you may have some unfulfilled dreams, hopes and desires about your health or whatsoever be for that matter. Remember there is always a new beginning, a new tomorrow, a new hope and a new dawn. Congratulate yourself for what you have achieved under the given conditions and circumstances. Brace yourself with new energy, new hope and a new you towards a better tomorrow, better hope and a brighter future.

 I wish you all the success and happiness in the coming New Year.

Take care,
