Why is hemp such an essential food?
Easy to digest: Unlike many grains, legumes and nuts, hemp contains no enzyme inhibitors, and the seeds do not need to be soaked or sprouted before being consumed in order to get their full nutritional benefit.
Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs): EFAs are called “essential” because they are necessary for many metabolic processes, and are not produced by the body itself. They are distinct from fats that are used only as fuel. The two fatty acids essential for humans are alpha-linolenic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid, and linoleic acid, an omega-6 fatty acid. Hemp is not only an excellent source of these two EFAs, but it also provides them in an ideal ratio of about 3:1 for Omega 6 to Omega 3.
Essential Amino Acids: Our bodies consist of about 75% protein, and amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Essential amino acids are those which our bodies are not capable of making and which must come from our food. Hemp seeds contain all of the essential amino acids, and significant quantities of non-essential amino acids that are also nutritionally important.
GLUTEN FREE - Hemp seed is naturally gluten free.
