IECAVNIEKS HEMP SEEDS
The beneficial properties and fragrant taste of hemp seeds have been recognised since ancient times. The most valuable part of hemp is the fruit – the brown, shiny nut or seed. Hemp seeds are very valuable. They contain 30–38% oil. Nutritionists consider hemp oil to be better than fish oil because it is more environmentally friendly and contains more nutritious amino acids and Omega-9 fatty acids, which are not found in fish oil.
The globulin contained in hemp seeds is most similar to the globulin found in human blood plasma. It is vital for maintaining immunity as it produces antibodies in the body. Because of its valuable composition, hemp is sometimes called the queen of the vegetable kingdom.
Hemp seeds are rich in plant proteins, amino acids, fibre, carbohydrates, calcium, potassium, magnesium, phosphorus and other compounds, as well as oil containing Omega-3 and Omega-6 unsaturated fatty acids, which are beneficial for the body.
Hemp seeds are great for human health by:
- boosting immunity;
- cleaning the arteries and preventing the build-up of cholesterol;
- improving metabolism;
- stimulating the intestinal tract and giving a feeling of satiety.
