Hemp & Health
Our hemp can truly be called a superfood because of its extraordinary wealth of nutrients. Whether for strengthening the immune system, increasing physical and mental well-being or simply because of its great taste, its uses are manifold. Hemp also has a lot of benefits for our environment.
Hemp is considered to be an excellent source of protein as it contains all 8 essential amino acids and thus directly supplies the body with all necessary protein components. The complete amino acid profile of hemp is accompanied by an immensely high biological value. This means that the body can absorb the protein contained in hemp particularly efficiently and convert it into the body's useable proteins. Last but not least, hemp protein is - in contrast to protein from animal sources - very easily digestible due to its high fiber content.
Delivers Omega 3
Also special about hemp is its unique Omega fatty acid profile. Hemp oil consists of an unparalleled 90% of unsaturated fatty acids and additionally provides an optimal ratio between Omega 6 and Omega 3 fatty acids (3:1 to 4:1). This makes it the most balanced oil available. In addition, hemp contains the rare gamma-linolenic acid that can help treat, for example, skin problems or premenstrual complaints.
Vitamins, Minerals and Micronutrients
A multiplicity of vitamins, mineral materials, and micronutrients are contained in hemp, e.g., zinc, magnesium, iron, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Vitamin D and B Vitamins. This nutrient density leads to the fact that hemp is attributed with a lot of positive effects on the body. For example, it strengthens the immune system, improves cardiovascular functions, and ensures good intestinal health.
Cannabinoids and Terpenes
Cannabinoids attach to the receptors of our endocannabinoid system from where they then perform different functions. For example, by indirectly regulating the release of messenger substances in the brain, cannabinoids influence various aspects of our body. Thereby they have the potential to positively affect our general well-being. Terpenes effect scent, color and taste and are responsible for the “Entourage Effect” in combination with the Cannabinoids
Hemp and Sustainability
One of the best things about our organic hemp is that you can enjoy all of its nutritional benefits without compromising the environment. Hemp is a plant that requires little water and fertilizer and because of its resistance, no pesticides. Due to its long root system, it improves soils, protects insects and thus provides a lot of nutrients in a resource-saving way.
