Hemp Seeds - SUPER SEEDS!

Hemp Seed Nutrition Profile

By now, most of you have heard about HEMP SEEDS and how great these little hearts are. But if you looked at what's inside these little seeds, here's a quick run down of the known therapeutic benefits of hemp.

Excellent 3:1 balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which promote cardiovascular health.

High in gamma linolenic acid (GLA), an essential omega-6 fatty acid found in borage oil and egg yolks that has been proven to naturally balance hormones.

“Perfect protein” not only containing all 20 amino acids, but also each of the 9 essential amino acids that our bodies cannot produce.
Rich in soluble and un-soluble fiber which naturally cleanses the colon and reduces sugar cravings.

Hemp seeds are also a rich source of phytonutrients including:

Calcium (145mg per 100 grams)
Iron (14mg per 100 grams)
Magnesium (483mg per 100 grams)
Manganese (7mg per 100 grams)
Phosphorus (1160mg per 100 grams)
Potassium (859mg per 100 grams)
