Organic De-Shelled Hemp Seeds 500g

Hemp seeds are popular healthy food as it is very rich in nutrients such as omega fatty acids, amino acids, and minerals. About 35 percent of hempseeds content is oil. The hemp seed oil contains 80% essential fatty acids (EFAs), linoleic acid (LA, 50-70%), alpha-linolenic acid (ALA, 15–25%) and Gamma-Linolenic_acid (GLA, 1–6%). The balance of linoleic acid and alpha-linolenic acid in hempseed oil can satisfy our needs for EFAs very well. Both the complete protein and the essential oils contained in hemp seeds are in ideal ratios for human nutrition. 65% of its protein content is in the form of globulin edestin, so that it can actually be used by the body in its raw state. By comparison soya beans have to be cooked or sprouted before they can be eaten. Other benefits of hemp seed oil include its effect on the skin and the hair, nourishing both on a cellular level. Hemp oil is easily absorbed by the skin and those EFA's go straight to work!

It is a perfect food for peole with low essential fatty acid intake, and also perfect for athletes. Hemp seeds are the only edible seeds with gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). Hemp seeds are a highly nutritious source of protein, and are better tasting and more digestible than the soya bean.
