Brock discusses his Top 5 reasons to eat hemp.
1. Complete Protein
Hemp contains all 9 essential amino acids, which can be a challenge to find in plant-based foods. There are a whopping 10 grams of protein in 3 Tbsp of hemp seeds, which makes it a great food choice to ensure you get adequate protein in your diet.
Hemp can be used in so many different forms, in so many different recipes. From smoothies, to baking, cereals, snacks, salads and more, there isn’t much you can’t include it in. Planet Hemp makes different types of hemp protein powder, plus the seeds and hemp oil, for all your hemp needs!
3. Neutral Flavour
With it’s slightly nutty, but fairly neutral flavour, you can be confident that regardless of what recipe you add hemp to, it’s not going to overpower your recipe.
4. High in Iron & Magnesium
A serving of Hemp Seeds contains 70% of the daily required value of magnesium, and 30 % of iron. Magnesium is important in literally thousands of functions throughout the body, including muscle relaxation. Those with low iron levels should consider consuming hemp daily.
Hemp is a pretty tough plant, and is quite resistant to pests. Why is this important? It means the crop doesn’t need to be genetically modified, and doesn’t need to be sprayed with chemicals, making it a clean and sustainable crop to grow.
