I recently read an article about how good hemp seeds are for you and how they’ve gotten a bad rap because of their botanical relationship to medicinal varieties of cannabis. Hemp contains a small amount of TETRAHYDROCANNABINOIDS (THC) It has been researched extensively and science shows when it’s not smoked it can have substantial health benefits with almost no side effects.
The 7 benefits of Hemp seeds:
Rich in GLA-researchers have discovered that GLA supplementation is necessary for proper hormone health and can help greatly with PMS symptoms.
Arthritis and Joint Pain-researchers have concluded that hemp seed oil has anti-arthritic effects, which can help patients suffering from its symptoms.
Weight Loss-Hemp is a natural appetite suppressant and can help you feel full longer and reduce sugar cravings. It’s recommended that adding 4 TB to your breakfast will help curb excess hunger the entire day. This is because of all the fiber they have.
Digestive Health-High in insoluble and soluble fiber, hemp seeds provide more than enough bulk to keep your gastrointestinal system regular and feeds the probiotics in your gut to help secure a robust immune system. This means it can relieve constipation naturally.
Hair, Skin and Nails-the Oil in hemp seeds penetrates the inner layers of the skin and promotes healthy cell growth. Since hemp seed oil is also good for skin disorders, such as psoriasis, and eczema, it’s a good ida to eat at least a couple tablespoons everyday to maximize these benefits.
Cancer-Because of its perfect fatty acid profile of omega-3 fats and GLA, hemp seed helps naturally balance inflammation levels and strengthen the immune system.
HEART HEALTH-Some of the key ingredients in building a healthy heart include fiber, plant-based protein, healthy fats and eating less sugar. Hemp seeds help in doing all of those things.
I’m sure looking forward to implementing hemp seeds into my morning routine after reading about how healthy they are. I know I could use all of these benefits!
