Hemp seeds offer a healthy source of essential fatty acids (Omega-3 and Omega-6) to the body, but also provide a very high level of dietary fiber, which helps your digestive system remain efficient and healthy. Hemp is also a complete protein, which is unusual for sources that are plant-based.
Since the human body can't produce essential fatty acids (EFAs), it is important that EFAs be consumed on a regular basis. It is estimated that more than 90 percent of Americans take in too little of one of the most important EFAs– omega-3, which is found in flax, walnuts, chia and hemp seeds. EFAs are the good fats that doctors recommend as part of a healthy and balanced diet. This is also an excellent source of Magnesium & Manganese; and is also a good source of Thiamin (B1), Phosphorus, Vitamin E, Iron, Copper, and Riboflavin.
