Hemp hearts are hulled hemp seeds and it seems to be getting more popular as a health food source these days. The name is a trademark name started by the Healing Source Company. You get hemp seeds from the plant Cannabis L Sativa plant but unlike the leaves of the plant, there is hardly any THC (psychoactive drug chemical) content in the seeds and you will not have any high after consuming them. It is proving to be an increasingly beneficial source of concentrated amounts of protein, vitamins and minerals. It is especially beneficial for people with chronic health related problems like arthritis, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, cancer patients and other health related problems like obesity, low energy, fatigue etc. It is no wonder that it is sold in increasing quantity in the health and wellness industry.

Let’s look at some of the reasons why hemp seed and hemp oil are getting so popular. First of all, it has more concentrations of proteins, vitamins and minerals than meat, eggs or milk products. It is also more digestible than soya products and contains more omega-3- fatty acids than any known fish source. These fatty acids when consumed in the right proportion, helps the energy taken from food and distributes it to every cell in your body in an efficient and healthy manner. Hemp hearts are also suitable for those who are lactose intolerant and cannot have dairy products, meat or sugar in their food. Another component that they have which the body cannot produce on its own are the essential amino acids.

Many middle aged to older people who ate at least 4 tablespoons of hemp hearts found that it increased their energy levels throughout the day and that they started avoiding sweets or colas as an energy stimulant.

Hemp hearts could also be important as a natural weight loss product as it has been found to decrease hunger pangs throughout the day. This is probably because of its nutritional value of providing a comprehensive nutrient table to the body so that it can sustain itself more naturally.

Hemp oil is obtained by pressing hemp seeds. Unrefined hemp oil is dark to light green in color, with a pleasant nutty flavor. The oil is of high nutritional value and it has also received some attention as a possible source of feedstock for the large scale production of biodiesel.
