    Hemp seeds - a gift of nature
    Hemp seeds are a gift of nature. They are the most nutritious seeds in the world. Hemp seeds are a complete protein. They have the most concentrated balance of proteins, essential fats, vitamins and enzymes, combined with a relative absence of sugars, starches and saturated fats. Hemp seeds are one of nature's perfect foods - a super food. This is one of the strongest foods available, supports optimum health and well-being, for life. Raw hemp offers a wide range of health benefits, including: weight loss, increased and sustained energy, rapid recovery from illness or injury, lowered cholesterol and blood pressure, reduced inflammation, improved circulation and immune system, and natural blood sugar control.

    Hemp belongs to the genus Cannibis sativa and has been grown for thousands of years as a source of fiber, edible seeds, cooking oil, lubricants and fuel.
    Benefits of hemp seeds

    Hemp seeds are a perfect and natural blend of easily digested proteins, essential fats (omega 3 & 6), gamma linolenic acid (GLA), antioxidants, amino acids, fiber, iron, zinc, carotene, phospholipids, phytosterols, vitamin B1, vitamin B2 , Vitamin B6, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Chlorophyll, Calcium, Magnesium, Sulfur, Copper, Potassium, Phosphorus and Enzymes. All amino acids essential for optimal health are found in cannabis seeds, including the rarely found gamma linolenic acid (GLA). The 17+ grams of omega fats supplied by hemp seeds provide sufficient, continuous energy throughout the day. Many users also experience these health benefits:
    Excellent source of essential fatty acids including Omega 3, 6 and GLA in the perfect balance.
    More digestible protein than meat, whole eggs, cheese, human milk, cow's milk or any other protein rich food
    Rich in vitamin E
    Can be eaten by those who are unable to tolerate nuts, gluten, lactose or sugar; There are no allergies to hemp foods.

    Essential fatty acids in hemp seeds

    The oil contained in the hemp seed is 75-80% of polyunsaturated fatty acids (the good fats) and only 9-11% of the less desired saturated fatty acids. Hemp seed oil is known as the unsaturated oil that comes from the plant kingdom. The essential fatty acids (EFAs) contained in hemp seed oil are considered essential because our bodies naturally do not produce them. This means they have to be preserved from the food we eat.

    Most health organizations agree that the human body needs a 3 or 4: 1 balance of omega 6 over omega 3. Hemp seed is the only seed where this ideal balance occurs. It does not occur with flax, almonds, walnut, soybeans or olive oil. The daily use of flax seed can lead to dangerous imbalances, as flaxseed oil has a 1: 4 balance instead of a healthy 4: 1 omega-6 over omega-3.

    EFAs are involved in producing the energy of life throughout the human body and without it, life is not possible. In general, North Americans have a high dietary deficiency of EFAs because of their high intake of processed foods and meat.

    Extensive studies have shown that many common diseases are associated with deficiencies or imbalances of specific fatty acids in the body. Symptoms are often associated with a lack of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids and their derivatives, the Postaglandins.

    It has been proven in several clinical studies that supplementation with EFAs or their metabolites (such as GLA) will often prevent or even cure many forms of disease.

    Hemp seeds are about 1/3 oil and 1/4 protein - for cellular health and energy

    Hemp seeds exceed most energy bars for energy and deliver this energy in a better shape - not sugar and saturated fats.
    Four tablespoons of hemp seed (42 g), enough for a meal on cereal, fruit, yogurt or salad, contains:
    240 cal energy
    15 g of essential fats (11.4 g omega 6 and 3.6 g omega 3)
    2.7 g of mono-unsaturated fat
    2.1 g saturated fat

    Hemp seeds exceed most energy bars for proteins and deliver a complete spectrum of vital, natural proteins. 4 tablespoons contain:
    15 g protein
    2.5 g of fiber
    4.5 g of carbohydrates
    No cholesterol

    Contains all the required proteins in the best proportions for human nutrition:
    Hemp protein is also a complete source for all 20 known amino acids including the 9 essential amino acids (EAAs) that our bodies can not produce. About 65% of the protein in hemp seeds consists of the globulin protein edestin and is found only in cannabis seeds. Edestin supports digestion, is relatively free of phosphorus and looks at the backbone of the cell's DNA. The other third of the hemp seed protein is albumin, another high-quality globulin protein similar to that found in egg white. Hemp protein is free of tryspin inhibitors, which block protein absorption and are free of oligosaccharides found in soy, causing stomach upset and gas.

    Hemp seeds are a more digestible protein than meat, whole eggs, cheese, human milk, cows milk or any other high-protein food. They have a better spectrum of available proteins than soybeans - without the soybean anti-nutritional factors.

    They are an excellent protein product for everyone - mothers, babies, bodybuilders, convalescents, the elderly, EVERYONE.

    The oil component consists of preferred ratios of all essential fatty acids (EFAs):

    With 78% essential fats hemp oil exceeds soybean oil at 40%, rapeseed oil at 30%, olive oil at 10% and other oils. Omega 3 and omega 6 essential fats can reduce cholesterol, blood pressure, coronary heart disease and stroke. The 3: 1 ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 EFAs in hemp oil is considered to be the best in nature for promoting cellular health. Hemp oil contains more "Omega 3" EFA components (19%) than are found in any fish and in most fish oil supplements.

    Hemp foods reduce inflammation and benefit those with arthritis, cardiovascular disease, psoriasis - even tuberculosis. By improving blood circulation and reducing inflammation, hemp products can be particularly beneficial for diabetics.

    As a rare source of GLA, cannabis seeds can be beneficial for those who are too ill to synthesize this EFA from other fats.

    Hemp oil contains plant sterols that can reduce the risk of colon and prostate cancer.
