Hemp: Nature’s Perfect Protein- best for your health
1. The Hemp Plant?
Hemp – nature’s perfect protein is part of the Cannabis family. Cannabis sativa, better known as Industrial hemp, originates from the same plant family as the illicit drug marijuana.
However, despite the fact that both Industrial hemp and marijuana are from the same plant family. The argument that they are one-and-the-same could not be further from the truth. Instead, hemp seeds recognized for many years are the foundation of nutrition. They are quickly making their way back to the forefront of modern health and well-being.
The poor protein intake of the general population is of growing concern. This is directly related to the many man-made processed foods, readily available on the market nowadays, which carbohydrates dominate,
The fact is, protein is the body’s most important and vital macro-nutrient for healthy living. Which makes this is an issue that needs immediate correction in order to fight the increasing health concerns and obesity epidemic worldwide.
2. The Hemp Seed a Rich Source of Protein
Most may never have heard about the hemp seed, let alone its amazing nutritional benefits. However, what is astonishing is that from no other natural source on earth can a more complete source of protein be found. The hemp seed contains up to 36% protein and has within it all of the 20 known amino acids – 8 of which are essential and 2 that the human body cannot produce by itself.
Of the 36% protein found within the hemp seed, 65% of it is made up of Edestin. Edestin is a protein that is similar to that found within human blood and is completely exclusive to the hemp seed a superfood. Because of this, the protein within the hemp seed is the most recognizable source of protein available for the human body and therefore the most beneficial for our health.
3. The Hemp Seed’s Anti-aging Properties
Recent research is stating that Edestin is now becoming recognized as the backbone of cellular DNA, due to its similarity to that of the protein found in the human bloodstream.
If this research continues in the direction that it is currently heading, hemp seeds will soon be a central component to the studies of anti-aging and other nutritional studies within the health industry.
The other third of the protein found within the hemp seed is Albumin. This commonly studied protein closely resembles that of the protein found within egg whites.
4. The Hemp Seed: Cold-Pressed Edible Oil
Hemp seeds are cold-pressed to produce edible oil. The benefits of hemp oil are quickly becoming recognized as nutritional breakthroughs for human health. Hemp oil may be nature’s most perfectly balanced source of oil, containing the perfect 3:1 ratio of Omega-6 (linolenic acid) to Omega-3 (alpha-linolenic acid) essential oils that are vital for joint lubrication, brain development, and metabolic support.
