Hemp is a fantastic source of all forms of omega-3 fatty acids and one of the few abundant, naturally occurring complete protein sources in the plant world. It is also a mineral powerhouse that’s full of antioxidants and iron.
When it comes to protein, hemp is one of the best plant-based sources in the world. It is what we call a complete protein, which contains all nine essential amino acids and is the form that is easy for the body to digest. This is a rarity in the plant-protein world.
Hemp’s impressive health properties don’t stop there. Hemp is an abundant source of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids in the right ratio of 3:1 that serves to balance out the imbalance created by many modern diets. It’s a magnificent source of magnesium, a mineral that can be hard to encounter in sufficient quantities. And it’s a fantastic way to up your fiber intake.
Hemp is also one of the world’s most sustainable crops with a history that goes back 12,000 years. It grows in nearly every climate and is still used all over the world today as a source of food, fiber, textile, paper, and even fuel. Today’s uses span the gamut. Tibetans use hempseed in their yak buttered tea. Vegan chefs use hemp in their gourmet creations.
Hearty and able to withstand significant variations in temperature, Navitas Organics Hemp is grown by family famers on small farms in the fertile prairie region of central Canada. Our premium seeds are de-shelled to reveal the soft, nutritious hemp hearts.
