Hemp - not just practical but nutritious too

Hemp is one of the oldest cultivated plants known to man. Grown traditionally for the practical uses of hemp fibre, the seed of the plant is now recognised as a “power house” of nutritional goodness. Hemp seeds contain about 30% oil, 25% complete protein and are rich sources of fibre, phyto-sterols, vitamins and minerals, too. Adding them to breakfast cereal or smoothies gives a wonderfully balanced and nutritious start to the day, especially for vegetarians and vegans who also need a complete source of protein in their diet.

The protein that we eat is broken down into amino acids, which are reassembled into human protein molecules, according to our needs. We need protein for structure (muscles, collagen, tendons or ligaments) and to function (cellular instructional proteins, transport proteins, hormones, enzymes and neurotransmitters). Your Name
