Hempseeds are one of earth's most nutritious foods and are nature's
source of perfectly balanced Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs).
EFAs, the polyunsaturated "good" fats-Omega 6 Linoleic
Acid and Omega 3 Linolenic Acid-must be obtained in our diet in
an average recommended ratio of about 3 to 1.That is the same ratio
naturally occurring in hempseeds! EFAs have been shown to reduce
the risk of cardiovascular disease, stroke, osteoporosis and diabetes.
EFAs reduce the inflammation of rheumatoid arthritis, relieve eczema,
increase immune system function, balance hormone function and boost
energy by increasing transport of oxygen to the cells.
Hempseeds are an excellent source of the rare Gamma-Linoleic Acid
(GLA), important for human growth and development and significant
in protecting us from degenerative conditions like arthritis. It's
also well-known that GLA lowers cholesterol and acts to balance
Hempseeds are protein rich! Their protein (about 65% edestin, a
highly digestible form of protein) is comprised of all nine essential
amino acids that are required for optimum health plus 2 rare amino acids that are essential for growing infants.
We use organic shelled hempseed "milk" as the base for our Cool Hemp Frozen Desserts.
