Green Protein & Omega Star
Hemp is a well-balanced vegetarian protein source that includes all of the essential amino acids. Not only is hemp one of the best veggie sources of protein, it’s easy for the body to digest and assimilate. Hemp also features plenty of other nutrients including abundant fiber, chlorophyll, vitamins and omega-3 and -6 essential fatty acids.
Hemp has been cultivated for over 12,000 years around the globe. The hearty plant has been used as a food, fiber, textile, paper, and even fuel. It is believed that Tibetan women first discovered how to produce string and cloth from the hemp fiber.
Nutrition experts tout hemp seed because it is an easily-digested complete protein source that is also one of the richest vegetable sources of the Omega 3 & 6 Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs). Hemp seed contains chlorophyll and is a plentiful source of fiber and vitamins and minerals such as magnesium, iron, zinc, and potassium.
For optimum health, Omega-6 and Omega-3 need to be consumed in a certain ratio. Nutrition experts recommend hemp seed due to its ideal 3 to 1 ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 EFAs. Hemp seed oil is a rare food source of the “super omega-3” called stearidonic acid (SDA) that is the ’first metabolite’ in the omega-3 family and therefore easy for the body to process. It’s also a plentiful and rare plant source of the ’super omega-6’ EFA called gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). There are only 4 significant natural sources of GLA: Hemp Seed, Evening Primrose, Borage and Black Currant, and of these, hemp seed is the only whole food source that has a wide variety of culinary functions.
