Highly Nutritious Hemp

There has been much excitement of late about the health benefits of hemps seeds, hemp oil and hemp protein powder. These hemp products don’t contain THC which is the active ingredient in marijuana. So, no you’re not going to get high from these hemp products, however you are going to get healthy!!

Hemp seeds are one of the most nutritious seeds in the world, containing a concentrated balance of proteins, an excellent source of essential fatty acids being Omega, 3, 6 and Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA). They have minimal sugars, starches, or saturated fats and almost no carbohydrates, high amounts of Vitamin E, plus Vitamin B, Calcium, Magnesium, Iron and Zinc. They are the only known plant food source of Vitamin D3 and contain both soluble and insoluble fibre. What a great reason to include hemp seeds, oil, or protein powder in your diet!!

If you’re looking for an energy hit, hemp seeds with hemp protein powder are great to add to your smoothie. They’re a nutritious start to the day, containing gut cleansing fibre and practically no carbohydrates. Hemp oil can be used in salad dressings, drizzled over meals, added to smoothies, and even used as a skin moisturiser. Some customers have found hemp oil very helpful for various skin conditions such as dry skin and even eczema. Hemp Protein has a nutty flavour and is great for smoothies or to add to cooking.
