Hemp Heart Benefits


Hemp HeartsI have a passion for smoothie bowls and I like to top them with chia seeds, hemp seeds, and more! Adding hemp hearts give that extra kick to keep my energy going before my mid-morning snack. The hemp seeds come from the hemp plant, Cannabis sativa. They are actually a nut and have a nutty flavor. Here are some benefits of hemp hearts:

  1. Improves digestion:  The insoluble and soluble fiber helps to cleanse the colon and reduce sugar cravings. Insoluble fiber adds bulk to fecal matter and helps food and waste pass through the gut. The soluble fiber creates a gel-like substance in the gut that helps provide good bacteria for the gut and reduces spikes in blood sugar. This keeps your gastrointestinal system regular. The hemp seeds feed the probiotics in your gut and improves your immune system.
  2. Balances hormones: Hemp hearts contain gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), which can reduce symptoms of PMS and menopause. GLA helps to regulate hormone imbalances and inflammation associated with menopause and PMS.
  3. Skin health: There are polyunsaturated and essential fatty acids that can improve cases of eczema. They can also relieve dry skin, improve itchiness, and reduce skin medication needs.
  4. Improves metabolism: Hemp seeds suppress the appetite naturally and help you feel fuller longer. This is what reduces sugar cravings.
  5. Excellent source of omega-3 (linoleic acid) and omega-6 fatty acids (alpha-linolenic acid): These are good fats that promote cardiovascular health.
  6. Perfect protein: they contain all 20 amino acids and all 9 of the essential amino acids that our body cannot produce. The body needs to get these essential amino acids from the diet.
  7. Helps people with:
    • ADHD
    • Breast pain
    • Diabetes and diabetic neuropathy
    • Heart disease
    • High blood pressure
    • Multiple sclerosis
    • Obesity
    • Premenstrual syndrome
    • Rheumatoid arthritis
    • Skin allergies
