Hemp is one of the world’s oldest cultivated plants, and for good reason; it’s also one of the most valuable, versatile and sustainable plants known to man!
While many still confuse hemp with its narcotic cousin cannabis (which comes from the same plant), hemp does not contain the THC found in cannabis and therefore has no intoxicating effect.
“Hemp is, in fact, an amazing superfood, supplement, weight loss aid, brain booster, heart helper and all-around nutritional and agricultural wonder”, says Robyn Smith, founder of online and organic natural store, Faithful to Nature.
What can hemp do for your body, your mind, and your planet?
Amino Acids: Hemp is known as a complete protein, which means it contains all the Essential Amino Acids (EAAs) your body needs for optimal health. It’s a great supplement for vegans and vegetarians who wouldn’t get EAAs from animal-based foods.
Edistin: This is a protein that your body uses to make antibodies and enzymes. Hemp protein contains the highest Edistin percentage of any plant-based protein.
Omegas: Fatty acids (Omega-3, Omega-6 and GLA) with a wealth of health benefits for the body and mind. Hemp is an excellent vegetarian and vegan-friendly source of Omegas.
Because hemp is natural, these nutrients can all be easily recognised, digested and put to use by your body.
