How much do you know about hemp? Well you should know that hemp nuts are a complete protein (a balance of all 20 amino acids) and higher in protein than most other plants. They also have special proteins that protect the body to create a strong immune system. Hemp protein has the perfect balance of essential amino acids, which plays a vital role in growth and development, mood regulation, cellular respiration and more. If you look at other nuts, hemp nut oil has a lower amount of fat, with its fat primarily being polyunsaturated fat (a.k.a. EFAs), which is the healthy fat for your body. In addition, hemp provides a fair amount of antioxidant vitamin E, iron and chlorophyll, which helps with building the blood, nourishing and detoxifying the body.
Is this enough support to convince you that hemp is a nut that you should be including in your daily diet? Hemp comes in every shape and form, from hemp protein powder to hemp flour, hemp seed oil, milk form or nut butter. You may use hemp in your smoothies and baking, or sneak it into other main dishes. With every nut and oil, though, remember to eat sparingly in order to have a healthy balance in your diet.
