Health Benefits Of Hemp Seeds
As a highly digestible source of plant-based protein, raw hemp seeds are great for athletes, vegans, and vegetarians. Hemp seeds are a complete protein containing all 9 essential amino acids, which are required for our bodies to build protein and must be obtained through food.
Raw hemp seeds also contain a healthy 3:1 ratio of Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids which is rare in many of the foods consumed in Western diets. A proper balance of these essential fatty acids is important for controlling inflammation levels and preventing chronic conditions like heart disease. Hemp hearts are also a great source of nutrients such as vitamin E, which acts as an antioxidant to protect cells, and minerals like iron, which wards off fatigue and boosts energy levels.
Hemp Seeds Storage
It’s best to keep hemp hearts refrigerated in an airtight container. If you purchase a 5-pound bag, consider putting 1 pound of the hemp seeds in an airtight container in the refrigerator for daily use and freezing the rest.
