Hemp Seed Benefits on the Body
by Peter A Gorman  
are many sources of protein in foods other than meat. Tempeh, lentils, chickpeas,
tofu, and hemp seed are just a few sources of non meat protein. One of the best
sources of these is hemp seed.

So what sets hemp seed apart as a great source of non meat protein? Well most
importantly it contains the essential fatty acids our body needs to survive. In a 5
tablespoon serving it contains 15 grams of omega-6 and 5 grams of omega 3
essential fatty acids (EFA's). These EFA's are essential in preventing disease such as
arthritis and for neural networks in our brain. They promote healthy skin which has
been very beneficial for those dealing with acne and the list goes on. I highly
recommend you research the benefits that EFA's have. These fatty acids contain
important health benefits most of our diets lack.

Using the same portion size, hemp seeds also contain 20 grams of protein. This is
equal to a medium size chicken breast, yet with much greater health benefits. For
example, this portion of chicken contains 100 mg of cholesterol which is over 30%
of your daily intake while hemp seeds contain no cholesterol at all. This makes it very
easy to replace meat all together if you choose to. A great thing too about hemp
seed is the taste. Personally I find that it has a very neutral taste. This makes it easy
to compliment other foods. Adding it to a salad is very easy and is hardly noticeable
to the palate besides the texture which many find enjoyable. By just adding just 5
tablespoons you can eliminate an entire portion of meat and still getting all the
needed protein. It seems that hemp seed is still being overlooked as a great health
food to this day although it is growing quickly in popularity. It is definitely a natural
superfood everyone should be adopting into their diet for a long and healthy life. You
have nothing to lose in making the healthy choice with hemp seed.

In our ever growing and changing
society people have been looking at
healthy alternatives to replace the
harmful mass produced food of our
generation. We have also been fast
growing in our knowledge of the
harms that meat can have on the
body. Arthritis, diabetes, and many
forms of cancer are just a few
examples of the degenerative effects
meat can cause. This has turned
many to become vegetarian or
vegan. A common thought though is
that it is hard to provide the body
with sufficient protein on a vegetarian
diet. This however is untrue. There
