Health benefits of whole hempseed

WARNING: Eating Ben's Hemp may lead to an increased sense of well-being.

Hempseed, as a matter of fact, offers a nutritional kick unlike any other seed you can get.  Sometimes called a superfood by nutritionists and doctors, it is now easier to eat and more affordable than ever.

 

The seeds contain far less than 1% THC, but they do have very strong, naturally occuring compounds that are great for your brain and body! Hemp is a significant source of Omega 3 EFA, as well as protein, fiber, and valuable minerals and vitamins. 

Essential fatty acids (EFAs)

Unlike cannabinoids, which your body can produce itself, EFAs are a fat soluble compound that your body cannot produce on its own, and can be hard to get in your typical diet.  Consuming ‘normal fats’ , like saturated fats, hydrogenated fats, and animal fats can cause health problems.  EFAs, on the other hand, are known as "good" fats.

The World Health Organization recommends that you,”…limit energy intake from total fats and shift fat consumption away from saturated fats to unsaturated fats …[and] increase consumption of omega-3 fatty acids ….”

The typical American diet has over 12 times more omega-6 than omega-3, which is way off balance. Nutritions recommend a balance of about three or four times more Omega 6 than Omega 3, which just so happens to be the ratio of hempseed!  WHO would recommend eating Ben’s Hemp? The World Health Organization would!

Protein

Hemp is packed with protein.  Many types of protein are difficult for your body to digest or don’t have everything you need; for example you cannot digest ALL of the protein in a cheeseburger, and eating a pound of rice won’t give you all of the proteins you need.  Hemp protein is remarkably easy to digest, contains several types of proteins, and is completely unprocessed- making it one of the best sources of protein you can get.

 

Fiber

Whole hempseed is also a significant source of dietary fiber. The shells from Ben's Hemp help make a filling snack and are good for your digestive system.  Ben likes to start his morning off with a healthy scoop of hempseed, since fiber is often sought after for a healthy breakfast.  Just two tablespoons of Ben's Hemp has as much fiber as a whole bowl of Special K or All-Bran cereal!! 

Minerals and Vitamins

Hempseed is like a  goldmine of valuable minerals. Iron, Zinc, Phosphorus, Magnesium, and Copper, are all present to a solid degree, in Ben's Hemp.  It's also a significant source of Vitamin E (an anti-oxidant) and the brainy Vitamin B (Thiamine, Riboflavin Niacin are vitamins B1, B2, and B3, respectively).

A Natural Superfood

Hempseed is so healthy that it’s almost like a food supplement.  But it’s not- it’s all natural, unprocessed, vegan, allergen-free -- and still is tasty!!  Ben's Hemp is proud to sell certified organic, non GMO hempseed, which means it's not just great for you body, but it's great for the environment as well.  Hemp is a hero to our bodies and our environment: saving us from bad fats, high cholesterol, unhealthy habits, and foods made with petroleum based fertilizers and harsh chemical pesticides.  If you haven't yet experienced the benefits of Ben’s Hemp, then you don’t know what you’re missing.
