- Contains all 11 essential amino acids
- Contains 6.2 x more Omega-3 than raw tuna
- Contains an abundant source of GLA

- High in dietary fiber
After consuming only one serving of hulled hemp seed many people feel an elevated sense of awareness, mental clarity, and pure abundant energy that lasts all day.
Hemp seed is a beneficial and healthy food for the elderly, middle aged, teenaged, children, infant, and especially nursing mothers.

One serving (4 tbsp – 42 grams) contains:
Shelled or hulled hemp seed has a wonderful nutty flavor that can easily be incorporated into your diet while providing a powerful daily supplement. Hemp seeds contain approximately 33% protein, 35% essential fatty acid (in the form of nutritious hemp oil), and 12% carbohydrates (mostly from fiber), in addition to an excellent array of vitamins and minerals.
The oil contained in the hemp seed is 75-80% polyunsaturated fatty acids (the good fats) and only 9-11% of the lesser desired saturated fatty acids. Hemp seed oil is reputed to be the most unsaturated oil derived from the plant kingdom. The essential fatty acids (EFAs) contained in hemp seed oil are deemed essential because our bodies do not naturally produce them. This means that they must be obtained from the food we eat.
Most health organizations agree that the human body needs a 3 or 4:1 balance of omega 6 over omega 3. Hemp seed is the only seed where this ideal balance occurs. It does not occur in flax, almond, walnut, soybean or olive oil. Daily use of flax seed can lead to dangerous imbalances since flax seed oil has a balance of 1:4 instead of a healthy 4:1 omega-6 over omega-3.
EFAs are involved with producing life’s energy throughout the human body and without them, life is not possible. In general, North Americans have a high dietary deficiency in EFAs due to their high intake of processed foods and meats.
Extensive studies have demonstrated that many common illnesses are related to deficiencies or imbalances of specific fatty acids in the body. Symptoms are often related to a lack of Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids and their derivatives, the postaglandins.
Hemp protein is also a complete source of all 20 known amino acids including the 9 essential amino acids (EAAs) which our bodies cannot produce. Approximately 65% of the protein in hemp seed is made up of the globulin protein Edestin and is found only in hemp seed. Edestin aids digestion, is relatively phosphorus-free and considered the backbone of the cell’s DNA. The other one third of hemp seed protein is Albumin, another high quality globulin protein similar to that found in egg whites. Hemp protein is free of the tryspin inhibitors which block protein absorption and free of oligosaccharides found in soy, which cause stomach upset and gas.
It has been proven in several clinical studies that dietary supplementation with EFAs or their metabolites (such as GLA) may often prevent or even cure many forms of illness.
Hemp seed also provides an excellent supply of antioxidants (Vitamin E), carotene (precursor to Vitamin A), phytosterols, phospholipids and a number of minerals including calcium, magnesium, sulfur, potassium, phosphorus, along with modest amounts of iron and zinc. Hemp seed also provides a good source of chlorophyll.
There are no known allergies to organic hemp seed, making it perfect for those who have nut, dairy, and gluten or wheat allergies.
