All these systems need us to take of them and to help us maintain them, here are some seeds
Hemp seeds (Cannabis sativa)
Hemp is ‘super food’ belonging to the mulberry family which has been cultivated for over 10,000 years and was the first crop to be cultivated by mankind as a source of edible seeds and oil, a lubricant and as fuel.
Hemp seeds have the most concentrated balance of nutrients available including complete protein, with essential fats and virtually no sugar, starch or saturated fat.
Consuming raw hemp seeds aids in weight loss, increased and sustained energy, natural blood sugar control, reduction of inflammation and pain, lowered LDL cholesterol and blood pressure, improved cardiovascular and organ function, reduction of degenerative diseases, protection against creast, colon and prostate cancer, heart disease and strokes, reduction of PMS symptoms and cramps, improved recovery of muscles after intense exercise, improved skin and hair condition and a marked improvement of the immune system, metabolic rate and circulation.
Consuming hemp seeds regularly can treat acne, arthritis and rheumatism, circulation problems, constipation, diabetes, dry skin, eczema, intestinal and digestive problems, obesity, prostate problems, psoriasis, respiratory conditions such as tuberculosis.
Hemp seeds components protect the brain cells which can alleviate symptoms of anxiety and depression and improve the memory and mood. They also can protect against and help to improve symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and Parkinson’s disease.
The normal daily consumption for general health should be about 42 grams (4 heaped tablespoons) for an average sized adult. For larger than average people or to treat any of the above conditions it is advised that 55 grams (5/6 heaped tablespoons) is consumed daily. Make sure that the hemp seeds are organic and have not been heat sterilised in order to gain the benefit of high nutrition from them. Conditions of the above can be expected to improve within three months of daily consumption.
Hemp contains all 20 required amino acids plus is a rich source of GLA, omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids, alpha, beta and gamma globulin, enzymes, carotene, chlorophyll, edestin, lecithin, phospholipids, phytosterols, plant sterols, vitamin B1 (thiamine), vitamin B2 (riboflavin), vitamin B3 (niacin), vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), vitamin D, vitamin E, boron, calcium, copper, germanium, iodine, iron, magnesium, manganese, lithium, nickel, phosphorus, platinum, potassium, silver, sulphur and zinc.
It has been reported that the human body ideally needs a balance of 3 or 4:1 of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids. Hemp seed is the only natural food that provides this perfect balance. Flaxseeds, almonds, soybean, walnuts and olive oil do not contain this correct balance and can lead to an unhealthy imbalance if consumed daily. The oils in hemp contain more beneficial omega-3 components than found in any fish or fish oil supplements.
Hemp protein is free from tryspin inhibitors which block protein absorption and is free from oligosaccharides found in soy which cause stomach upset and gas.
These seeds can be consumed by those with an intolerance to nuts, lactose, gluten or sugar and there are no known allergies to hemp.
They are especially good for pregnant and nursing mothers, babies, body builders, the elderly or convalescent patient but are an amazing source of balanced nutrition and highly digestible protein for everyone.
Hulled hemp seeds contain far less nutrients and if heated treated will have lost most of vitamin content.
Hemp oil should not be used for frying only as a dressing ingredient.
Hemps seeds can be added to any meals, salads, sandwiches and snacks and are ideal for sprouting on a windowsill in a jam jar using just a daily rinse of water.
Hemp is often included in bird seed due to its high nutritional content
