Why Hemp? Nutrition!
Note: a word to our frustrated website viewers!
My apologies-we are updating this site to include the extraordinary Kimberly wood stove & OTHER fine American products. While our soon to be carried hemp products are NOT made in the USA that is only despite the will of millions of Americans who know what fantastic blessings non thc laden hemp food, apparel, fuel and other products ARE to benefit all from farmers, industry and American families.
Hemp is simply second to none when talking about nutrition. Nothing else on the planet packs such a complete source of protein, fat (good fat – essential fatty acids) and carbohydrates in such a small package. If you are looking for Nature’s perfect wonder food, you’ve found it and it is hemp seed.
There are so many wonderful health benefits to hemp seed. First and foremost it has to be the immune boosting qualities of the essential fatty acid content of the seed and oil. Hemp is the only seed with a substantial level of Omega 3, Omega 6 and GLA, the elusive Omega 9. There is simply no better way to boost your immune system using food.
Hemp has been known to lower blood LDL cholesterol levels and aid in lowering blood pressure. It has also been known to improve cardiovascular circulation and function.
Hemp seed contains an excellent source of protein. With hemp seed having more than 25% of the total seed weight as protein, it is second only to Soy in protein content. Hemp seed also has all 20 known amino acids including the 9 essential amino acids making hemp seed a perfect protein providing all the amino acids that your body needs.
Hemp protein is also made up of approximately 65% Edestine and 35% Albumin as protein types. Edestine is considered the most digestible protein because of its closeness to the structure of protein found in human blood. Edestine is also the backbone of cell DNA. Albumin is most commonly known as the protein found in egg whites. Hemp protein is also free of the sugars found in Soy, oligosaccharides, that cause flatulence and stomach discomfort.
