The Awesome Health Benefits of Hemp Seeds

These little seeds pack a powerful punch so here at Myvitamins we take a closer look at Hemp Seeds and the amazing benefits these mini health heroes can provide.

Hemp seeds are high in protein

One serving of MyVitamins Hemp Protein contains 14g of nutrient-rich protein, to help build and maintain lean muscle mass. The protein in hemp travels to your muscles quickly, too, which means less time for your muscles to break down and more time spent repairing.

It’s the quality of the protein that matters when it comes to hemp, which is why it’s so popular with people who really care about what goes into their bodies.

Full of essential amino acids

Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Without them, your muscles won’t grow as they should, and that applies to your skin, too. There are two kinds of amino acids — essential and non-essential. Non-essential aminos are still essential, but they can be made by your body. There are 20 of them. Essential amino acids can’t be made by your body, you have to get them through your diet. There are nine of them.

Hemp seeds contain all 20 non-essential and all nine essential amino acids.

Omega fatty acids

We’re forever going on about omega fatty acids and how good they are for you, and hemp seeds are one of the more balanced sources of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.

With an ideal ratio of 3:1 Omega-3 to Omega-6, hemp seeds help to keep your brain healthy and inflammation at bay.

It gets better and better with hemp seeds, just check out the massive amount of vitamins and minerals each serving contains:

  • Calcium
  • Iron
  • Magnesium
