Hemp seed benefits have been used in western food and medicine only in recent years. However, the Chinese have long known about their advantages. Nutritionally, they're superior to many excellent foods and they also seem to have certain compounds, which have remained unidentified, that may bring improvements for many health complaints. They fall within the same species as marijuana but they don't have the psychoactive properties of THC because of their low content.

When using them as a food, many prefer them in shelled form as seeds. Their flavor is quite close to that of pine nuts and can be used in health bars, stir fries and cereals. When mixed with flax seeds, they have the enzyme inhibitors which can cause problems with digestion.

The seeds have a high protein level with nine essential amino acids. This makes them a flax equivalent but they does have an advantage over both soya and flax. The latter two food sources have high levels of phytic acid, which makes their nutrients difficult to digest. These seeds don't have such high levels, so they won't cause the bloating that's often experienced by those who ...
... use soy and protein shakes.

The seeds can be made into an oil that works well with Asian cooking and salad dressing as it has a nutty flavor. They have also been turned into supplements in the form of protein powders and shakes. They're sometimes used in the form of milk.

It's possible that the seeds could improve brain and immune function but this hasn't been satisfactorily demonstrated as yet. Tests on mice showed good results in this area. The most valued quality of the seeds seems to be its value as a food source.

The protein the seeds deliver is particularly well digested and absorbed at cellular level because it's so similar to what the body produces. It consists of edestine and albumin. Until now, vegans have had little option but to cope with the digestive complaints they suffer from soy but now they have a better alternative.

There are high levels of omega 3 and omega 6 in Hemp's seeds. They contain two polyunsaturated acids that are hard to find in other foods. They're an improvement on soy and canola oil, which are often the advised sources of fatty acids. The seeds' oil turns to peroxide at high temperatures so it can't be cooked with. If it's used to saute at temperatures beneath boiling point, it won't cause problems.

One of hemp's advantages is the fact that it doesn't attract insects. This substantially lowers the amount of insecticides required. Today, finding natural foods that don't have high toxin levels can be difficult so this is a large gain.

Cholesterol can be reduced through an increase in essential fatty acids. The seeds might also improve circulation and lower blood pressure by acting as an anti inflammatory. Fatty acids could be used to help treat depression. Always consult a GP before using natural products as medicinal treatments. The hemp seed benefits are also introduced through fiber, which is excellent for digestion.
