Healthy well-being is one of humanity's fundamental needs. Eminent scientists and doctors consider hemp to be one of the most nutritious plants in the world. The resilience and density of the nutritional values of hemp seeds is unique.
The result is a wide range of products that feed us, promote our health, have healing properties and protect nature.
Not only do the ingredients contained in hemp make it one of the healthiest and most nutritious sources of food that mother nature gives us. Rather it is the ratio of unsaturated fatty acids containing them: as in the human body also in hemp seeds the essential fatty acids Omega 3 and Omega 6 stand in a ratio of 3:1, which is ideal not only for human metabolism, but also rare in vegetable oils.
The beneficial properties of hemp
Hemp seeds are renowned for their large amount of protein: they contain a wide range of essential amino acids (up to 8 types of amino acids), especially Omega 3 and 6 and for this reason are part of the list of "protein foods par excellence". These vegetable seeds also contain a high vitamin intake and are a natural source of mineral salts such as potassium, calcium, iron and magnesium. The presence of polyunsaturated acids makes this food a valid ally to prevent cardiovascular problems, cholesterol, respiratory disorders and skin disorders. Hemp seeds help strengthen the muscle system, immune system and nervous system.

In feeding, hemp can be used in the form of seeds and oil (hemp seed oil). Hemp (seeds) has a very delicate flavor, similar to hazelnut, it is a food with high digestibility, ideal for those suffering from particular allergies, for those who follow a vegetarian or vegan diet where there is a replacement of animal proteins. Hemp flour can also be found in many organic shops, useful for making many baked goods or for cooking particular and original dishes. Hemp seeds are great for enriching salads, granles, salads or preparing delicious side dishes for the whole family.
