Boost Your Immune System With Hemp


Did you know that there are approximately 150 known forms of immune deficiency diseases? As many as 10 million people worldwide suffer from some sort of immune deficiency disease.

Some examples of immune disorders are :

  • Chronic Fatigue Disorder
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Dermatitis
  • Lupus
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Ulcerative Colitis
  • Scleroderma
  • Psoriasis
  • Myasthenia Gravis
  • Fibromyalgia

The immune system consists of special cells, organs, and proteins, and they work to defend the body against germs. When there is a weakness in the immune system, infection and disease can occur.

Hempseed contains approximately 35% of protein, 65% of which is edestin protein. Edestin protein is very easily assimilated by the body because it is very similar to human globulin.

Hemp protein contains Omega fatty acids, and the fatty acids are the nutrients that help strengthen the cells and immune system. Omega fatty acids encourage the production of healthy cells and membranes.

In addition to being an excellent source of nutrition to  help with the immune system, hempseeds also help with inflammation that is a result of the immune diseases.

    • Jill, I eat hempseeds right out of the bag, or put them a blender and mix with smoothies, I’ll sprinkle them on salads, sprinkle on sandwiches, or sometimes roll pieces of fruit in them. Sometimes will sprinkle some on a cup of soup. One can actually get pretty creative with them!

      I mix hempseed oil with dressings or make a vinaigrette with the hempseed oil. You just need to be mindful about not exposing hemp seed oil to high heat, it will change the chemistry of the oil. Your best bet is to use low heat, or not heat it at all. You will also want to keep hempseeds and hempseed oil in the refrigerator to keep them from going rancid. I hope this helps!
