7 reasons to eat hemp for breakfast

There is a reason why it is said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. What we eat on an empty stomach will be assimilated the fastest and enter our bloodstream fueling the work of all our organs. It is worthwhile for the first meal to contain a comprehensive set of all the ingredients we need to get started: protein, minerals, vitamins and fatty acids. You will find all these ingredients in very high concentrations in hemp foods. Learn 7 reasons why you should include hemp-based products in your daily menu.

  1. Hemp is a source of well-absorbed protein

Protein is the building block of our recovering cells and enzymes. Without adequate protein, our body cannot regenerate and function. That's why it's so important to provide it in adequate amounts every day. Hemp seeds contain as much as 40% protein. It is distinguished by its balanced PH and digestibility, unlike whey protein, so it can be used regularly in any amount. An excellent supplement for athletes, hemp seed protein contains 20 key amino acids, including 10 essential for muscle regeneration and enzymes that our body cannot synthesize.

  1. Contain omega 3 and 6 fatty acids in the best-absorbed proportion for humans

That omega acids are essential for the proper functioning of the cardiovascular system we all know very well. Their proper proportion in the body is also important. The oil contained in hemp seeds is rich in important fatty acids, especially alpha-linolenic (Omega-3) and linoleic (Omega-6). They are in the best-absorbed ratio (3:1), so the human body absorbs them several times better than, for example, from flaxseed oil. The right ratio of omega acids supports our heart health and brain function!

  1. Hemp protects the skeletal system

The vitamin K contained in hemp seeds, which is rarely available in food, combined with a sizable dose of calcium, vitamin D and magnesium (essential for proper calcium absorption), provides an optimal cocktail of substances that support bone and joint health. It's amazing to find all these 4 ingredients in one plant, which when consumed together and dissolved in fat (hemp contains up to 30% fat) are assimilated very effectively.

  1. Hemp contains a whole army of vitamins

I used that word for a reason. The list is really impressive, in the hemp seed you will find, in addition to the already mentioned vitamin K, also A, B1, B2, B3, B6, C, D, E. The high fat content is also very important here, as fats are needed for proper assimilation of vitamins. Again, it all adds up!

  1. Hemp regulates the digestive system

The fiber contained in hemp seeds regulates intestinal function and promotes proper digestion. With the additional presence of vitamins and the alkalizing properties of hemp protein, we can count on the pleasant, soothing properties of the digestive system and deacidification of the body.

  1. Hemp can be consumed by gluten intolerant people.

Good news for all allergy sufferers who cannot consume gluten. Hemp is a plant that is 100% free of this protein mixture. In addition, hemp seeds contain a trace amount of intestinal irritant phytic acid, present in most legumes and seeds and responsible for bloating and unpleasant digestive effects.

  1. Hemp has a super nutty and sunny flavor!

Both the beautiful greenish hemp seed oil and the seeds or protein have a pleasant taste on the borderline of sunflower and nut flavors. This makes them a perfect match for any dish, both sweet and savory, conquering its flavor. I can't imagine breakfast without my hemp seeds!

Cheers! ????
