I started experimenting with hemp food products, such as hemp oil, hemp seeds, hemp protein powder and even hemp flour! I realized that hemp is an incredible product and has so many great benefits. It’s very rich in proteins and good fats and helps with a lot of health issues.
Before I tell you about this wonderful, protein-rich mushroom patties recipe, you should know why hemp is so amazing! Here are some hemp health facts below.
The amazing health benefits of hemp
Hemp is a variety of the Cannabis sativa plant. It is not the same as marijuana, as it does not contain the high levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
- The essential fatty acids contained in hemp reduce blood cholesterol and thus prevent plaque buildup in the arteries.
- Hemp improves your memory and prevents diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
- Hemp oil is often used for cosmetic purposes in products such as soaps, skin lotions and lip balms. It clears up skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and dry skin.
- Hemp is a natural appetite suppressant and helps you to feel full longer. Add 4 tablespoons of hemp seeds to your breakfast and reduce your food cravings for the rest of the day.
- Hemp is rich in fibers and thus it keeps your digestive tract clean and healthy.
- Hemp reduces your risk of breast, colon, and prostate cancers because of the antioxidants and plant sterols it contains.
- Hemp seeds are also essential if you are diabetic, as they control your blood sugar levels.
- Hemp seeds are very rich in proteins and are great for vegetarians!
These are just a few of the great health benefits of hemp.
