I’ve been eating hemp seeds for awhile now. They taste great and they provide a blast of nutritional power that far exceeds almost any food available today. I’ve written about the benefits of hemp before, but hemp seeds need their own special shout out, because they are truly one of nature’s powerful foods. Here are 5 reasons that you need to be adding hemp seeds to your healthy diet.
They are a superior source of vegetarian protein. This high protein percentage strengthens the immune system and fends off toxins in the body.
Hemp seeds improve cardio vascular health. They contain the highest source of botanical fatty acids and a perfect balance of omega 3 and omega 6 linolenic acids.
Hemp seeds are the richest known source of essential polyunsaturated fatty acids. They contain phytonutrients that ward off disease throughout the body.
Hemp seeds contain all essential amino acids for our body including 9 amino acids that our bodies don’t produce.
Hemp seeds will lower your cholesterol. They produce phytosterols which helps remove fat from your arteries.
Yes, hemp seeds are a member of the cannabis family, but there is no need to be concerned that they will get you high. Hemp seeds contain a very low amount of THC, plus they contain a substance that counteracts THC.
If you’re looking for an excellent source of protein and healthy fats, then hemp seeds are the way to go. Here are some delicious ways to add them to your diet.
-Sprinkle them over salads.
-Add them to scrambled eggs or pancakes for breakfast.
-Put them in your smoothie.

This is just one way to take advantage of the power of hemp. I hope you find other ways to use this amazing plant in your healthy life.
