Hemp seeds have amazing health benefits and are also quite delicious! Here is a list with 10 amazingly-delicious hemp recipes!
I wasn’t a big fan of hemp seeds until I realized that they really deserve their place next to the other superfoods. After I started using hemp seeds more often, I realized how amazing they are, not only health-wise but also taste-wise!
Hemp seeds are an incredible source of vegan protein and good fatty acids, and regular hemp seed consumption even helps with many health issues that a lot of people encounter during their lifetime.
Being a variety of the Cannabis sativa plant, some people think that hemp is the same as marijuana, which couldn’t be farther from the truth! Hemp seeds do not contain the high levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) that marijuana has, which means it doesn’t have the same effects on our bodies.
Besides being rich in proteins and perfect for people who follow a vegan or vegetarian diet, some of the amazing health benefits that hemp seeds include:
- Cholesterol management – it helps maintain it in the right parameters.
- Improves memory and prevents diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
- Clears up skin conditions such as psoriasis, dry skin, eczema.
- Helps you feel full for a longer time and reduces food cravings.
- It is an anti-inflammatory food.
- It’s high in magnesium, zinc, manganese, iron and other valuable nutrients.
- …and much more!
