Want a Real Superfood in Your Diet? Try Hemp Hearts!

One Green Planet
So when everyone became enthralled by the potential benefits of hemp hearts, I started researching. Turns out, they live up to their hype. According to researchers at St. Boniface Hospital Research Centre, hemp offers “excellent nutritional value.” Among the vast benefits include: a rich source of fatty acids, polyunsaturated fat, protein, vitamin E, phosphorous, magnesium, sulfur, calcium, iron, zinc, omega 3, omega 6 and more. The researchers also indicate that the good fatty acids in hemp may be valuable for helping maintain a healthy cardiovascular system: they have shown promise in lowering cholesterol and blood pressure levels. Aside from that, hemp hearts are said to help with inflammation, muscle tension, mental function, body regulation, satiety and blood sugar spikes.
