Tasty nutty flavour
Hemp seeds are surprisingly tasty, have a nutty flavour and soft texture which can make for a great accompaniment to many foods and meals. A popular choice being adding to breakfast cereal like muesli and granola, including in a salad, or as a baking ingredient. Why not try making a hemp seed cake or adding them into flapjacks or chocolate brownies.
Rich in Omega 3 & 6 (unlike cod liver oil)
Hemp seeds contain what is considered to be an optimal balance and ratio of 3:1 Omega 3 to Omega 6 fatty acids. Omega 3 oils are generally found in fish oils with a popular supplement being cod liver oil and Omega 6 is normally found in seeds, nuts and plant-based oils. Hemp seeds are one of the few foods that contain both, and as a result not only have health benefits associated with omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids but the balance between the two can contribute towards lowering cholesterol, immune system support, and metabolism control.
Hemp is a superfood
Hemp seeds are considered to be a super food as a result of the high levels of vitamins, minerals and other nutritional compounds. These compounds including vitamin E, B vitamins, magnesium, potassium, iron and zinc. Hemp seeds are known to support brain activity, heart health and improve skin quality.
High in Protein
