I have added yet another seed to my list of ingredients that I blend in my smoothie every morning. List is now flaxseed, sunflower, sesame and hemp.
Why hemp seeds? I know this may sound a little bit crazy but hemp seeds are said to be very good for your health in many ways.
- Hemp seeds contain all 9 essential amino acids
- They also contain essential fatty acids Omega 6 and Omega 3 in a ratio of 3:1. Body requires a 3:1 or 4:1 balance of Omega 6 to Omega 3 for good health.
- Cause no allergic reactions ( I can not validate this myself as I am not allergic to nuts or seeds.)
- Contains Vitamin E
Hemp seeds improve the immune system, dry skin condition, cardiovascular circulation and reduce many symptoms of muscle and joint pains. Definitely a super food to add to the list and have in house.
Have a long, happy and healthy life.
