I’m sure most of you have seen the cold medicine commercial, “______, the nighttime, sniffling, sneezing…coughing, so you can rest medicine.”
Industrial hemp can also be classified as medicine – nutritional medicine. Proper nutrition is the basis of good health. When we give our bodies vitamins, minerals, protein, Omega fatty acids, fiber, and carbohydrates in sufficient amounts, we are enabling our cells, muscles, tissues, organs, and immune systems to work at an optimum level.
Fast foods and packaged convenience foods have become the norm, but at the expense of our health. These ‘foods’ are laden with preservatives, chemicals, and artificial flavors and colors. Canned foods are cooked – many nutrients are cooked out of the foods. For many, processed and canned fruits and vegetables have replace fresh produce. Processed foods with heavy amounts of additives and chemicals are not giving our bodies sufficient nutrients or are simply giving empty calories.
It has been proven that insufficient Omega fatty acids can be the reason for numerous illnesses and diseases. Insufficient Omega fatty acids can result in brain diseases and disorders (depression, Alzheimer’s Parkinson’s), heart disease, complications from diabetes, and many other conditions. Omega fatty acids support the immune system.
Hemp has edestin protein. Edestin protein is the protein closest to human globulin and is very easily digestible. For those who are vegan or vegetarian, hemp is an excellent choice for protein. Edestin protein is ONLY found in hemp seeds; it aids in digestion and supports cellular DNA.
“When hemp protein is compared to soy protein it should be noted that hemp does not contain trypsin inhibitors that soy does. Trypsin is an enzyme that is essential to nutrition. Since hemp protein is free of the tryosin inhibitor that are found in soy protein, hemp is the de facto king of plant protein!” (globalhemp.com)
Hempseed has fiber, vitamins, minerals, and micronutrients – all of which are vital for health.
