What Are Hemp Seeds?
Hemp Seeds are plant derived seeds, taste like sunflower seeds, but don’t have the messy shells. When searching for a source of healthy fats, I learned of the many benefits offered by hemp seeds, so decided to locate a brand that I could personally try in my diet. The advantage of hemp seeds is that they not only offer a healthy source of essential fats to the body, but also provide a very high level of dietary fiber, which helps your digestive system remain efficient and healthy, while also offering complete protein, which is unusual for sources that are plant based. I was able to locate an excellent brand locally, and decided to provide this product to others who are looking for a healthy source of fat, protein, dietary fiber, and vitamins and minerals.
If you currently follow the MuscleNOW or Fat Vanish program, hemp seeds are a perfect source for meeting your EFA needs, and function very well with the Fat Vanish weight loss and MuscleNOW muscle building higher fat diet that I describe in the program.
Vegan Source That Offers Complete Protein
Hemp Seeds contain all the essential amino acids for complete protein in the body, and no other single plant source provides complete protein in such an easily digestible form. There is 12.9 grams of protein in a 2 oz. serving, providing an alternative to meats, fish, dairy, eggs, and soy products for muscle building, fat loss, in addition to improving general health.
Contains Healthy Omega 3 & 6 Fats
Hemp Seeds contain large amounts of Omega 3 & 6 fatty acids, which are known as the “healthy” fats, governing growth, vitality, state of mind, and fuel our immune system to fight disease. Hemp Seeds are very low in saturated fat (the “bad” fat), making them an excellent source of nutrition.
Excellent Source of Dietary Fiber
Hemp Seeds are an incredible source of dietary fiber, containing 16.8 grams per 2 oz. serving. Some potential benefits of dietary fiber are fewer digestive problems, better blood-sugar control, reduced rates of colon cancer, heart, and kidney disease, and regular bowel movements.
