Hemp seeds are exceptionally nutritious and rich in healthy fats, protein and various minerals. They are hard not to love.
Rich in essential fatty acids, they are also a great protein source and contain high amounts of vitamin E, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, magnesium, sulfur, calcium, iron and zinc.
High in Omega-3s
With an excellent 3:1 balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, hemp seeds promote cardiovascular health. This balance of fatty acids can also relieve dry skin and reduce the need for skin medication. Hemp seeds are also high in gamma linolenic acid (GLA) which naturally balances hormones. GLA helps people who have ADHD, heart disease, high blood pressure, obesity, arthritis, and many other health issues.
These nutritious seeds are considered the “perfect protein” because they contain not only all 20 amino acids but also the 9 essential amino acids that our bodies can not make. The insoluble and soluble fiber in hemp seeds also promotes healthy digestion.
There are countless reasons to love hemp seeds, that’s why we use them in each of our recipes at Dajia’s Super Snacks.Tweet
