Health benefits you get from adding organic hemp seeds to your diet

Hemp seeds are considered by many people to be a superfood. They are known for having a rich nutritional profile that provides a range of health benefits.

These small, brown seeds come from the Cannabis sativa plant. They are similar to other seeds such as flax seeds and chia seeds.

Hemp seeds outshine these and others, however, when it comes to protein content. The protein in hemp seeds contains all 20 essential amino acids – very extraordinary for plant foods. [1]

Included in these amino acids are nine that the human body doesn’t produce: histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan and valine.

In addition to their amino acid content, hemp seeds also contain a healthy amount of fatty acids. In fact, they have the perfect ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids for optimal health.

In addition to providing more energy than carbohydrates, fatty acids also have a number of health benefits for your body.

On top of all this, hemp seeds are also high in fiber and are a rich source of other essential nutrients such as calcium, potassium, iron, folate, phosphorus and magnesium.

Hemp seeds support healthy joints*

Hemp seeds are a rich source of antioxidants such as vitamin E, tocopherol, phytol, as well as omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.

Antioxidant-rich foods have been shown support healthy joint functions. This is because antioxidants, such as vitamin E, can help protect against oxidative damage from free radicals. [2][3]

Hemp seeds support healthy energy levels*

In addition to antioxidants, hemp seeds are also filled to the brim with energy-promoting nutrients. These include essential fatty acids that contain twice as much energy as carbohydrates. [4]

In addition, hemp seeds are also rich in energy-promoting minerals such as iron and magnesium. A single serving of hemp seeds can provide your body with 2.9 mg, or 16%, of its recommended daily allowance (RDA) of iron, and 192 mg, or 48%, of its RDA of magnesium. [5]

Hemp seeds support a healthy colon*

Hemp seeds contain generous amounts of dietary fiber, which is known to support healthy digestion and a healthy colon. [6] There are two types of dietary fiber: soluble and insoluble. Both of these provide benefits to the colon. More importantly, both are found in significant amounts in hemp seeds.

Hemp seeds support sensible weight management goals*

Hemp seeds’ high fiber content, as well as their rich protein content makes them very filling. This means that hemp seeds can help soothe cravings. When accompanied by a healthy diet and regular exercise, the consumption of hemp seeds support sensible weight management goals.

Hemp seeds support a healthy immune system*

Hemp seeds are among the best sources of a protein called globulin, which supports liver health and fights infection. This protein plays an important role in your body’s immune system. [7]

Globulin isn’t the only immune-supporting component of hemp seeds: Their fatty acids content, specifically omega-3 fatty acids, also support your immune system. [8]

Hemp seeds support healthy heart function*

Hemp seeds are packed with an amino acid called arginine. This amino acid is known to promote healthy heart function. [9]

Hemp seeds are also full of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids that also support optimal heart health. [10]
