Health Benefits of Hemp Seeds
A high source of protein, an ideal food for a vegan diet, low 3:1 ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 fatty acids, and a large variety of other vitamins and minerals make hemp seeds the perfect vehicle for sustainable energy, accelerated brain power, and overall health*. In fact, Oprah Winfrey named Hemp Seeds as one of the 4 healthiest seeds in her September 2011 issue.
