Hemp seeds, also known as bhang in India, are the seeds of the hemp plant. Hemp seeds are extremely nutrient-dense, containing healthy fats, protein, and a variety of minerals.
Hemp seeds have a fat content of over 30%. They are particularly high in linoleic acid (omega-6) and alpha-linolenic acid, two important fatty acids (omega-3).
Hemp seeds are a superb source of protein, with high-quality protein accounting for more than 25% of their total calories.
Vitamin E, as well as minerals including phosphorus, potassium, sodium, magnesium, sulphur, calcium, iron, and zinc, are abundant in hemp seeds.
Raw, fried, or roasted hemp seeds are all options. Hemp seed oil is also incredibly healthful and has been used in China for at least 3,000 years as a food and medication.
Hemp seeds include gamma-linolenic acid, which has been linked to reduced inflammation and may lower the risk of diseases including heart disease.
Hemp seeds are high in omega-3 fatty acids. They have a 3:1 omega-6 to omega-3 ratio, which may help with skin problems and relieve eczema and its unpleasant symptoms.
Protein accounts for around a quarter of the calories in hemp seeds. Furthermore, they are a complete protein source since they include all of the important amino acids.
Because of its high quantities of gamma-linolenic acid, hemp seeds may help with PMS and menopausal symptoms (GLA).
Whole hemp seeds are high in soluble and insoluble fibre, which is beneficial to digestive health. Hemp seeds that have been dehulled or shelled, on the other hand, have relatively little fibre.
Hemp seeds are a staple food in many countries and have good nutritional value. They have just lately gained popularity in the West.
