Hemp seed is so widely used throughout the world because of its availability, sustainability, versatility, and health benefits. The elements that make it so useful are mainly its chemical components, nutrients, and minerals. These include high levels of zinc, magnesium, calcium, phosphorous, iron, and fiber. Also, hemp seed contains 20 amino acids, including the 9 essential amino acids, making it a complete protein. Furthermore, it is composed of a large number of edible oils and a variety of essential fats in the body, including a rare form of omega-6 called GLA (gamma linoleic acid).
Hemp seed has a wide range of effects on heart health, including the proper balance of cholesterol or fatty acids in the body.
Because the oils in hemp seeds can quickly become rancid, they are best kept cold and should be used quickly. Hemp seeds taste like fleshy sunflower seeds and pine nuts but have a softer texture. You can add hemp to cereals, porridge, juice, smoothies, yogurt, salads, soups ... to supplement daily nutrition. However, high temperatures will destroy the nutritional value of the fatty acids in hemp seeds, so add hemp seeds to your food after cooking if you want to preserve their nutritional value.
