Hemp Seed -
highly versatile and nutrient-rich food
The seed of the hemp plant is a highly versatile and nutrient-rich food that can be used to make a variety of products. Hemp seeds are especially noted for their high concentrations of omega fatty acids, which can help prevent heat disease and promote overall health.
In addition, hemp seeds can be used to formulate high-quality protein supplements, for those who do not eat animal products.
These substances include sterols, which can improve immune function and help control cholesterol levels, according to Dr. Julian Whitaker and linoleic acids which possess heart-healthy benefits.
A 2010 article published in "Nutrition and Metabolism" also noted that the excellent concentrations of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in hemp seed oil have the potential to beneficially influence heart disease and improve overall health.
