Hemp is a variety of the Cannabis sativa plant, which has many industrial uses, in fact there are more than 25,000 known uses for it, many of which answer our global health problems and the environmental crisis, offering a way to live in harmony with the environment and ecosystems we depend on.
Hemp fiber can replace almost all non-renewable raw material, it is more versatile and stronger than cotton and wool, so it can replace petroleum-based products like plastic, and the best part is, it can grow anywhere and doesn’t require pesticides, herbicides or fungicides.
Hemp seeds are perhaps the purest, most nutritionally dense food on our planet, they provide you with a highly nutritious source of protein, and a balanced ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids, among many vitamins and minerals providing health benefits such as:
Heart Health and Lowered Blood Pressure
The essential fatty acids contained in hemp can reduce blood cholesterol to prevent plaque buildup in the arteries, reduce inflammation and improve blood flow which takes pressure from the heart.
The fiber and fats work wonders for our bowels, keeping your digestive tract clean and healthy, and it is also a natural appetite suppressant, helping you to feel full longer and avoid cravings for foods that put on the pounds, providing good healthy energy.
Healthy Cholesterol Levels and blood sugar levels
The natural fats and nutrients in hemp help us to maintain balanced cholesterol levels and maintain stable blood sugar.
At the end of the day, we need to recognize that protecting our environment and our health go hand in hand.
