What are the Benefits?
Hemp has a rich, nutty, soft texture and is bursting with health properties that many people are not aware of. It is one of only a few complete protein foods, which means it has the full spectrum of Amino Acids; the building blocks of Protein. Protein is important for the growth and maintenance of muscle mass and helps maintain normal bones. Hemp is a great alternative protein source for vegetarians and vegans or to add to a Protein shake in place of protein powder. It also provides iron which plays a role in energy release in the body and helps reduce tiredness and fatigue and is a great source of magnesium, as well as being truly delicious!
