Hemp seeds' 3-1 ratio of polyunsaturated fatty acids Omega 6(GLA gamma linolenic acid)-Omega 3 (LA linoleic acid), is easily digested by the organism and this is enough of a good reason to introduce hemp in our diet. These essential fatty acids are important for maintaining a functioning healthy heart, brain cells and their activity, to lower bad cholesterol levels (LDL) in the blood, and reduce inflammation. These essential fatty acids cannot be produced by our bodies and can only be acquired from external sources. Hemp Seeds are also loaded of plant-based protein, amino-acids, vitamins and minerals. 

Rich Protein Content

The total protein content of hemp seed is about 65% of the globular protein edestin, which closely resembles the globulin found in human blood plasma. It is easily digested, absorbed, and utilized by humans and vital to maintaining a healthy immune system.

Edestin has the unique ability to stimulate the manufacturing of antibodies against invasive agents and is nearly phosphorus-free, which is important for kidney ailments. The other important protein in hemp seed is albumin, which is also a highly digestible protein because of its globular shape. Albumin is a major free radical scavenger and is the industry standard for protein quality evaluation.

Hemp protein contains all 21 known amino acids, including the 8 essential ones that cannot be synthesized by the human body, but must be obtained externally. Proteins are considered complete when they contain all the essential amino acids in sufficient quantities and ratios to meet the body’s needs. The following are the 21 amino acids, with 8 essential amino acids human cannot synthesize in bold:

  • alanine-arginine-aspargine-aspartic acid-cysteine-glutamic acid-glutamine-glycine-histidine-isoleucine-leucine-lysine-methionine-phenylalanine-proline-serine-taurine-threonine-tryptophan-tyrosine-valine-taurine (considered essential for premature babies)-histidine (considered essential for children, but not for adults)

Proteins can be potential allergens, which also include soy, dairy, or peanut proteins. However, no hemp seed allergies have ever been reported.

What makes globular proteins so special is that they are precursors to some of the most vital chemicals in the body:

  • hormones (which regulate all the body processes);

  • hemoglobin (which transports oxygen, carbon dioxide, and nitric oxide);

  • enzymes (which catalyze and control biochemical reactions);

  • antibodies (immunoglobulins which fend off invading bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens, as well as toxins or antigens as they enter the body).

Hemp seed protein can supply any diet with a vegetarian source of essential fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, fibre, chlorophyll, and a complete, balanced gluten-free source of the essential amino acids.
