Hemp Is A Superfood (Take Note, Vegans!)
You’re probably thinking - isn’t hemp… cannabis? Isn’t it used in clothes? Isn’t it just green, low-THC fiber? How can it be a superfood?
Well, hemp is considered beneficial due to its healthy nutrients. Not only does it have an impressive ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 fatty acids, hemp also serves as a great source of plant-based protein (hemp is a whopping 25% protein, much like soybeans). That’s another protein alternative for all you vegans and vegetarians out there!
Its unique nutritional makeup provides many benefits for hemp-consumers, which includes preventing heart disease and cancer, building muscle, and stimulating digestion. Overall, hemp is definitely a healthy addition to your diet.
