Hemp Nutritional Benefits
- Hemp has a unique fatty-acid profile that includes common omega-3 and -6 fatty acids, plus less common stearidonic (SDA) and gamma linoleic GLA acids. These fatty acids fight inflammation and protect your heart and immune system.
- Hemp milk, rich in the above fatty acids, is a great source of protein and calcium. Production retail hemp milk uses fillers and sweeteners, so you might want to make your own by tossing hemp seeds and water in a blender and straining the mixture through cheesecloth.
- Hemp makes a great vegan protein powder, high in fiber and lacking in fillers (it’s simply milled hemp seeds). While the powder is not a complete protein, it’s pretty close to perfect in my book.
