The polyunsaturated fats you find in hemp seeds are the good ones. They contain a naturally balanced 1:3 ratio of Omega-3 and Omega-6 Essential Fatty Acids (EFA’s). These nutrients are termed Essential because our bodies require them to function – but since the human body cannot produce them, we must get essential fatty acids from the foods we eat, or from supplements. EFA’s are required for energy production, brain development and function, skin health and digestive efficiency. EFA’s are important at every age – remember, children need good fats, too!
The Power Of Hemp Seeds
Hemp seeds are one of the plant kingdom’s best sources of easily digestible, high-quality protein. Proteins are among the body’s most essential nutrients, helping you build and repair tissue and build lean muscle mass. 65% of hemp seeds’ protein is high-quality edestin (a globular protein biologically active as opposed to fibrous protein-structural-), making them the highest vegan source of this simple protein that’s required for proper immune system function.
The other 35% is albumin protein (Albumin helps keep fluid in your bloodstream, so it doesn’t leak into other tissues. It is also carries various substances throughout your body, including hormones, vitamins, and enzymes.). With live enzymes intact, hemp’s digestible proteins are easily assimilated into the body. Hemp protein is also a great alternative if you’re allergic to the proteins found in dairy and soy. Add hemp protein powder to a morning smoothie for a valuable wholefood energy boost. With an impressive profile of all 10 essential amino acids, it’s a great way to power up your day.
Tempt Hemp milk is an excellent source of ALA (Alpha-Linolenic Acid) Omega-3 fatty acids. One serving of Tempt Hemp milk provides about 50%* of your daily value of Omega-3 essencial fatty acids (EFA). In fact 92% of the fat content in Tempt Hempmilk is Omega EFA’s.
There are nine amino acids the human body cannot make (histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine.), so they are essential to life. A diet without any one of them will eventually cause disease and/or death.
These essential amino acids, along with eleven others the body can make from them, are chained together in accordance to genetic guidelines, via RNA formats from DNA blueprints, into structural proteins that give body to life, and into enzymes (globular proteins) that carry out the mechanics of living.
